|Dior Addict Lip Glow in Coral.|
Right, so, let's not beat around the bush. I'm a Dior lip product fiend - I like the Rouge Diors, the Addict lipsticks, and their lip gloss formula is hands down my favorite of all time. Funnily enough, however, I wasn't really interested in the one Dior lip product that everyone seems to love: the Addict Lip Glow. But then they came out with a coral shade, so I thought ok, why not. It's $33 for a tinted lip balm, but well, Dior prices, that's to be expected - it's definitely a splurge, but it would have been worth it if I loved it.
I don't love it.
I know! It's vanilla scented (a much better choice than the strong rose scent of the Rouge Diors), and not in that sickly synthetic MAC vein, either - it's rather yummy. It's soft and melds into lips, with a texture that is thinner and less waxy than the Fresh balms, but thicker and more transparent than an Addict lipstick. The finish is a sort of satiny stain - not glossy, but not matte or dry like those old school markers. This would have been good - I like this type of finish a lot (like this Ilia pencil, although the Dior Addict Glow is much more translucent).

I'll use up my tube, because it's not offensive, but I don't love it - and I wanted to love it. I do wonder if the original pink shade is better, but cool pinks never do well with me, unless they're full blown BOOM lipsticks (like this one). I know many people love this one, though. So hey, you might too. Or you might not. We'll band together. Let me know.
