Product Review: Dior Addict Lip Glow

I wanted to share a quick review on something I've been using for a while now: My Dior Addict Lip Glow.
I bought this because I got a gift card for Sephora. It originally costs $32 which is quite a hefty tag. Is it worth the price? Well... it's hard to say. I usually look at three criteria before I determine whether or not a product is worth a repurchase: Packaging, Formula, and Price.

Packaging: I'm a huge fan of Dior lipsticks' packaging. There's a very clean and classic look about them that I absolutely love. This product is no exception - I like the round end and the top feels secure when I close it. The color of the cap is also very pretty as well. 5/5

Formula: Now, onto the most important thing - how well it works. Not gonna lie, the formula actually shocked me! I wasn't really sure what to expect but it really does enhance the natural pigments of your lips and just... makes them glow! It's pretty amazing. That said, if you're looking for something dramatic, this may not be for you. the Lip Glow will make your lips glow but naturally so. It's better for every day but it won't be the wow factor of your makeup look. It's very subtle (I'm not sure if you all can really tell in the photos but trust me, the effect is very pretty in real life). Also, I don't find this lipstick to be very long-lasting. I think it came off my lips after about 3 hours or so. I will give this product a 4/5 because it does exactly what it says it will but the staying power is not good enough for me. 


Price: At $32 a pop, these things are definitely a huge splurge. Especially for the amount they give you and the low staying-power. Can't say it's exactly worth it. I give this at 2/5.

I think if you can manage to get this for free or at a discounted price somehow, you will love this product. That said, I wouldn't exactly repurchase this right away. It's great and all but there are better lip products out there, lip colors that are "my lips but better" that last much longer. The glow effect is cool but not cool enough that I would say it's a "must have."

  1. This was such a great review- I've always wondered about this product, but it sounds like it might not be worth the splurge-- though the packaging is a definite plus and it sounds like a great everyday product!

  4. Awesome review- it's so helpful that you break in down into criteria <3
    It's a shame about the staying power as the packaging and colour are so lovely!
