The Dior Cheek & Lip Glow ($39 CAD) in Instant Blushing Rosy Tint 001 is one of the coolest looking products I’ve seen released in a while. I love just looking at it on my desk bathed in sunlight. It has such a lovely glowing effect.
The packaging is similar to a Dior nail polish bottle. The cap lifts off (no twisting) and reveals the black twist cap below with attached applicator.
The applicator wand has a tapered ball shaped felt tip. I find it works really well for picking up the right amount of product without dripping or mess.
The Dior Cheek & Lip Glow has a sheer, watery gel texture and gives lips and cheeks a subtle and fresh rosy glow. Once the light gel is applied to lips and cheeks there is no product left on the skin. It blends right in and leaves only a subtle glow with no residual texture, sheen, stickiness etc. left behind. The Cheek & Lip Glow gives a cooling sensation on the skin.
As a cheek stain I find applying 2 layers gives me the best result over bare skin as one application gives only a very gentle amount of colour. It builds very well. You can also wear this over foundation prior to setting with powder. Just apply in a gentle patting motion rather than rubbing it in as you would on bare skin. It applies with more pigmentation this way as well giving adequate colour in one application.
I prefer this as a cheek stain. It looks incredibly natural on the skin. On my relatively pigmented lips I don’t find the stain quite deep enough to be noticeable on me personally. Are you a fan of lip and cheek stains? Do you think you will try out this new one from Dior?
The Dior Cheek & Lip Glow is limited edition and being released January 2015. It is available now at Sephora for Beauty Insiders.
