It’s a lipgloss!
Or is it? Ok, well, it’s a lip product based on an existing product from Dior called Color Reviver Balm, and like that Reviver, this one also channels mood rings.
New for spring 2013, $30 Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Gloss is supposed to be able to revive your natural lip color, whatever that means. Dior says it changes colors based on the chemistry of your lips. That’s the idea, but I think it has more to do with your actual lip temperature, as in, how hot are you? LOL!
Downsides? It’s expensive. $30 dollars expensive. That’s dinner and dessert (and maybe a glass of wine) for two! — or in Tabs terms, about 40 cans of gravy.
I guess you can imagine that it’s pretty easy to use… No special instructions. Application is pretty intuitive. You just whip out the wand, use the brush applicator to coat your lips, and wait. Seconds. Literally seconds. On me, it practically starts changing color on contact, going from a clear hot pink to a deeper, coral-like pink, almost like I’ve been kissing someone for a really long time.
At first I didn’t detect any fragrances or flavors, but then I turned my hound dog senses on high and smacked my lips together. I picked up the faintest eau de vanilla, barely there, both the scent and flavor.
I wore it around the house today and out to lunch with Jeremy Renner… Kidding.
Seriously, though, I’ve worn it a few times this month, and for a non-sticky gloss, it lasts a really long time. I’d say four hours. I applied it right after my workout this morning, puttered around the house, did some work, and had a desperation meal (some random soup from the cupboard and a can of guava juice…), and after all that, I could still see it there. Maybe not as shiny as it started, but I could definitely still see some Dior on my lips.
