The lip duo that your lips won’t soon forget. At least not for me. If you know anything about me, you know I have an unhealthy obsession with all things lips. I’m always on the lookout for that next great lip gloss, lip treatment, lipstick etc. For me, it has to work. I have dry lips and I don’t want them to look bad, so the most important thing for me is that it moisturizes and makes my lips look smoother and softer.
Well how do you decide what is good for you? Well, you just have to start trying products out. With a million choices, getting feedback from beauty experts, reviews from blogs and even word of mouth like your friends, it’s difficult to take advice from elsewhere when you’re not sure if it is the right product for you.
Throughout my years working in the beauty industry, I’ve tried a fair amount of lip products and there is only a few that stands out. This lip duo is what I’ve been using on and off for years. Here is my review on these two gems I found.
Dior lip glow color revival balm
This lip balm came only in one color when it first launched and I’ve always stuck to the original. Since its launch three more colors have entered the scene since. Mine is 001 in pink. This lip balm is a godsend, especially during the summer when I want to minimize my makeup. This is a balm, gloss and color in one tube and who doesn’t want to simplify their makeup bag?
This lip balm’s formula contains mango and luffa cylindrica which helps to soothe the lips. But the secret to this awesome lip balm is that it changes color on your lips! How cool is that? The color is very subtle and natural. I have seen it go on a rosy hue, a berry hue and a light pink hue. For me, it goes on a more berry hue. But don’t worry, this lip balm in particular is so universal that every woman or man of any skin tone can wear this and it will complement your lips beautifully.
Dior addict lip maximizer lip gloss
I know, I know, it’s a plumper and it’s not going to do much. Your right, it won’t. If you only use it once in a while. Give it the proposed 15 days and you’ll see a difference. You won’t look like kim Kardashian but your lips will look subtly fuller, plus the added bonus of this lip gloss hydrating and smoothing your lips. I have 001 in pink, but all colors that they have are fairly transparent when applied. They are meant to be worn alone cause of its gloss effect or under/over lipstick or lip gloss
The scent is what first got me. It’s a minty scent which immediately to me smells refreshing. It applies on very nicely and your lips look much smoother and feels hydrated. The collagen and marine fillers are what helps to plump the lips, but the hyaluronic acid spheres are what helps to moisturize and hydrate.
My personal opinion on this lip plumper: it smooths my lips lines and moisturizes my lips. Anything else is a bonus, the smell alone is so addicting and the way it makes my lips feel and look are fabulous. There is no tingling sensation which is good at least for me.
It’s tough to figure out what is good and what will work. I’ve gone through a lot of lip treatments and its not easy finding the right one. All I know is that these two lip treatments have worked for me in my quest to find lip treatments that work for my dry lips. I’m not afraid to try anything new and when it comes to makeup and skincare be open minded unless you have skin sensitivity and you can’t. I hope this at least helps you with finding something that works. Until next week, have a good day my beauties!
