Dior Addict Lip Glow Colour Reviver Lip Balm Review & LOTD-
I have coveted this particular lip balm for ages ever since I tried it on my lips at the Pune Sephora store but had baulked at the price (2200 for a lip balm!!!) & had controlled myself with much difficulty. The natural rosy hue on my lips was too tempting to pass on & hence I finally picked it up in the 001 Pink shade at Debenhams ^_^
What Dior Says-
The first colour reviver lip balm by Dior combining the comfort of a balm with a touch of colour for a tailor-made flush of pink.
Its secret lies in a perfect balance between make-up and lip care, and the famous “”Colour Reviver”” technology. The formula reacts to the pH level of each person’s lips, releasing the ingredient and providing a natural flush of customised pink. In terms of comfort, the formula, enriched in mango butter, ensures optimum 24-hour hydration.
Since 2009 it has been the go-to balm in our handbags. This indispensable tinted balm is a must-have for Dior models and is now an essential used by all Dior make-up artists backstage.
Away from the spotlight, it can be used on its own as a universal balm, a natural colour lipstick, or teamed with lipstick or Lip Maximizer.

My take on the Dior Addict Lip Glow Colour Reviver Lip Balm-
The packaging is luxurious & cute- a sturdy pink transparent lid over a silver tube but unfortunately the entire range of Dior Lip Glow (with lip scrubs & different shades of lip balm) comes in identical packaging & that makes it really difficult to distinguish if you have multiple ones. Otherwise it is travel friendly & convenient 🙂
The texture is smooth, buttery & very emollient, easy to apply & feels lush & lovely on lips.My parched, dry lips at once feel soothed & nourished without any residue or stickiness. This colour reviver lip balm has a special technology to adjust to individual body pH & bring out a natural, rosy shade & my lips look soft, full, glossy & naturally rosy which I simply love.
The hydration power of this lip balm is simply amazing & my lips feel soft & moist even several hours later after it has worn away through eating & drinking 🙂 I love wearing any dry/matte lipstick on top of this to make my lips feel hydrated, comfortable without compromising on the color.
The lip balm lasts on my lips for a long long time along with its rosy hue & it’s no hassle touching up now & then if I feel the need for it ^_^
The lip balm has a very subtle sweet, vanilla fragrance which fades within moments of application.
Pros of the Dior Addict Lip Glow Colour Reviver Lip Balm:
1> Luxurious, sturdy pink lid with a silver tube packaging 🙂
2> Texture is soft, smooth & buttery & very easy to apply evenly on lips.
3> My lips feel soothed, comforted with a very natural rosy hue.
4> Hydration is amazing & lips feel moist even after it wears away.
5> Easy to layer under any lip colour to keep dry lips at bay without compromising the shade.
6> Mild, vanilla fragrance which fades away in moments.
Cons of the Dior Addict Lip Glow Colour Reviver Lip Balm:
Too pricey for a lip balm.
