Dior Lip Glow Matte

We must have tried a thousand lip balms over the years – and most of them are sheen-y/shiny. But this clever, twist-up Lip Glow innovation from Dior comes in two versions: Holographic (which adds gleaming, iridescent shine), and Matte Glow. It’s this we’re especially taken with.

Enriched with softening mango butter and wonderfully hydrating, Dior Lip Glow Matte Glow is a tinted balm (and we do love a swoop of colour with our hydration), with a very clever technology by the name of ‘Colour Reviver’: it works with your ‘unique chemistry’ to enhance the natural colour of your lips, adding a soft, bespoke glow. There’s a choice of shades: the baby pink 101 Matte Pink, and slightly deeper 102 Matte Raspberry (Jo’s fave). For fun, there’s a technique for using the balms to create an ombré lip effect ­– see the VIDEO below.

One of those duh-why-didn’t-anyone-think-of-this-before products, actually. But thanks, Dior, for the brainwave.
