I'm a girl who loves beauty products, even though I haven't always been very keen on them, so I decided to start a beauty blog, where I share beauty product reviews with others and tell you about both the worst and best beauty products out there, according to me.

I'm also hoping it will make beauty and makeup more fun, even for those who are not beauty addicts already.

Review: Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Awakening Lip Balm

I mentioned in my post about my 2 new Dior lip products that I would be reviewing my new Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Awakening Lip Balm, and well, now it's time for that review.
I was actually not sure about getting this product, since the whole idea behind this product is that it "awakens" and strengthens your own natural lip color, and to be honest, I wasn't really sure what shade that would be in my case, and if I would like it or not. The main reason being that I like nudish lips, very light pink ones, and I suspected that that would actually not be my natural lip color. But after having tried the Lip Glow, I must say I was happy with the results. The color of my lips, after I applied this was very similar to how my lips look without anything on them, just a bit darker, which looks really, really natural and nice. It actually looks like you haven't used any lip product on the lips at all, which is very, very nice, if you ask me!
The packaging of the Lip Glow Color Awakening Lip Balm is not as luxurious as what I am used to with Dior products, though, the case looks kind of plasticky.

But the Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Awakening Lip Balm moisturizes your lips quite well, too, besides changing the color of the lips, which was a nice surprise. And the texture is really nice and buttery too.
So while this is not my favorite lip product of all time or anything, I am still really happy I gave it a try, and would probably buy it again, for days when I want a natural lip look, if you know what I mean.

Besides the packaging, which wasn't a hit for me, at least compared to other Dior products, the only downside of this product is the price. This is pricey for a lip balm, after all, but I think it will last me for quite some time, so maybe it's not as expensive as it seems for that reason?
