I thought this photo might be too wannabee artsy fartsy to post yet here I artsy fartsy am. Artsy fartsyness aside, I'm wearing the @diormakeup addict lip balm (PR gift via @octoly) and lemme tell you folks-- the hype is real!
👄 The packaging is nothing to write home about imo, but idc cause the product inside is freaking amazing
👄 It properly moisturizes my lips for a really long time. I can comfortably wear this for hours and not have to worry about my lips shriveling up. It even survives my constant sipping of water/ coffee/ tea (through a straw)
👄 As you can probably tell from this picture, I have quite dark, pigmented lips. So I'm often wary of sheer lip products because they can easily look patchy. The color on this is so perfect and blends in well with my natural lip color. It adds the perfect flush of pink. It also doesn't settle into the cracks of my lips like other tinted lip balms. Rather it sort of plumps them up and smooths them out
👄 Tbh this is not a product I would have splurged on myself. I've tried the @maybelline baby lips glow balm which is supposed to be the $3 dupe of this and was not impressed. It wasn't super duper hydrating and it turned a patchy, bubblegum pink on me. After trying them both out I can definitely say it is not a dupe!! At all!! The concept is the same but the performance varies wildly.
👄 That said I will definitely be purchasing more colors for myself in the future. Actually, it's tempted me into trying more @diormakeup lip products in the future...🤑😏
