Give me anything Dior and I’m pretty much guaranteed to love it.
I get excited about a lot of beauty brands, but when a package from Dior Beauty comes in the mail, my heart instantly starts beating faster and my excitement level is through the roof.
I recently got send a bunch of makeup goodies from the brand as part of their spring collection and I have to admit that it was love at first sight (and swatch!). One of their largest releases? The Lip Glow Oil Colour Revivers.
The Dior Beauty Lip Glow Oil Colour Revivers (C$45) is the brand’s newest colour-awakening, nourishing glossy oil that provides hydration and mega shine to the lips. Available in six shades, this oil reacts to the moisture level in your lips for a custom colour while providing moisture. The best part about this product is that with regular use you will notice that your lips will feel softer after only five days of wearing it.
Dior sent me four of the six shades to try out, Pink, Raspberry, Rosewood, and Coral, and although each shade looks different in the bottle, they all apply rather sheer with a tint of colour. Truthfully, I saw a minimal difference in all four shades, so I think that whichever you choose to go with should work beautifully on the lips. Again though, these do react with your body’s individual chemistry so the colour will be custom to each person that applies it.
The product is also infused with cherry oil which makes it extra luxurious to wear on the lips and it has a minty-vanilla scent which is very refreshing to apply.
Because these are an oil, they do have a slight stickiness to them, similar to a lip gloss, so if you don’t like that texture, then take a look at the Lip Glow Color Reviving Balm (C$45).
I received the balm in their limited-edition Diormania print, which features the Dior logo on the tube, but this works similar to the oils, but in a balm format. These balms have been around for a while and contain wild mango butter to smooth, soften, and hydrate the lips. They work the same way as the oil in that it reacts with your skin to give you a custom colour to match your skin tone.
I really love the balm since it’s so comfortable to wear (and the packaging is glamorous as well). I also love the colour it leaves me with on the lips, as well as the fact that it makes my lips look fuller. Dior also has these in a non-limited-edition which features multiple shades in a satin or shimmer finish.
If you were between the balm or the oil, I would say that it would really depend on what you like in a lip product. They work similar but are two different formulas. The balm is great for everyday wear, whereas the oil is great for everyday, as well as jazzing up a lipstick to add more moisture and shine to your look (making it great for drying matte liquid lipsticks).
I mean really no matter which formula you pick, you’re left with a hydrating lip product from Dior, so it’s a win-win all around.
