Dior Rouge Baume

There's a real trend for lipsticks that feel as soft and smoothing as balms - and we're pleased to add Dior Rouge Balm to that list, with its super-glam Dior packaging.

This is rich-but-not-greasy, which fits the bill as far as we're concerned. (We're not fans of feeling like we've whale blubber slathered on our lips.) It features Cristal Oil, a natural lipcare ingredient developed at Dior's labs, and this formulation offers 10 times more lip-caring ingredients than a typical Dior lipstick.

The four shades are pretty enough to put a smile on anyone's face: Star (transparent pearly white, also good over an existing favourite), Spring (soft, coral pink), Lili (our favourite - a beautiful delicate raspberry), and Diorette (bold fuchsia). Each is pretty sheer, though, so even the stronger shades look natural.

And the slimline packaging?  A-Dior-able.
