I love vibrant lipstick and bold matte finishes but sometimes my pout needs a break and a blast of moisture. When I first tried the Dior Lip Glow Balms I was instantly hooked and now I always keep the pretty plum shade in my purse for dry skin emergencies.
Every 3 seconds around the world one of these luxurious balms are sold and backstage it has become a favorite among models and artists. The translucent pink packaging with silver emblem adds simple sophistication to your beauty routine and the sticker swatch on the cap makes it easy to identify each shade.
This nourishing treatment is the perfect combination of lip care and makeup. “Color Reviver” technology makes the formula react to the pH level of each person’s lips resulting in a customized shade that enhances your natural skin color. Even as the pigment wears away (which takes hours) it leaves behind a lovely flush that makes my pout look healthy, rosy and rejuvenated.
With a nutritious dose of mango butter, the lightweight, supple balm makes lips feel incredibly soft, plump, smooth and moisturized with a hint of luminous shine. The creamy formula glides on effortlessly and quenches without stickiness so lips get the protection they need all winter.
The Matte Glow finish has a subtle tint with a blurred effect to enhance lips without giving the impression you’re wearing makeup. The transparent color is juicy, voluminous and flattering on every skin tone. In the photo below there are 3 soft pinks (left to right): 008 Ultra Pink, 007 Raspberry and 102 Matte Raspberry. If you prefer prominent color the matte Raspberry has more pigmentation while the other is translucent with brilliant shine.
The Halo Glow shades have an iridescent effect with a wash of radiant shimmer that makes lips appear dazzling. I like to apply the matte balm first and then top it off with a few layers off the halo for a multidimensional effect that reflects light and provides the velvety lushness I crave.
The Lip Glow Balms retail for $41.00 at Dior counters nationwide
