I’m not normally one to spend more than $30 on a lip balm. A hydrating night cream with anti-aging ingredients? Sure, I’ll pay up. And I’ve even been known to splurge on luxe mascara that makes my eyes really pop. But when it comes to lip gloss, I’m typically a Rosebud Salve kind of girl—for the record, that costs $7—so trust me when I say that Dior’s Lip Glow is worth the $35 price tag.
The formula combines hydrating ingredients like shea butter and cherry oil that help keep lips feeling their best for hours on end with a sheer wash of color, making it a great addition to a 5-minute beauty routine. Just swipe it on, add a little blush and mascara, and it’s the perfect fresh-faced look. I’m partial to the berry shade, a subtly blackberry tint that looks good on pretty much everyone, and is so easy to wear. In the summer months, I tend to use a lighter hand, but in the winter, the color’s easily buildable into a richer hue.
Plus, Lip Glow makes for an impressive gift this time of year—for a friend, a sister, your aunt with exquisite taste. The packaging is lovely, and it makes for a rare designer moment under $50. Because who wouldn’t love something from Dior slipped into their stocking?
