For this Part 8 of the Color Adjusting Lip Series, I bumped the comparison review of Dior Addict Lip Glows, 001, 004, and 005 and of the Physicians Formula pH powered Glosses in Natural, Dark Pink, and Light Pink, to instead show you this limited edition Dior Addict Lip Glow Liner- 001- Universal Pink. For me, at least, it seems like this product was released quietly or under the radar. That’s too bad because interested people may end up missing it while it’s available.

As you’ve probably figured out by now, this is a color adjusting lip product that works in the same way as the Dior Addict Lip Glow balms. However this liner only comes in one color: 001- Universal Pink, which would be the counterpart to the original Dior Addict Lip Glow balm (in 001- Pink). The liner comes in a tall and thin, pink, plastic, pencil type casing. The product twists up from the casing, and it’s a solid, hard, stick.

The applicator tip is shaped in an interesting slanted “squoval” instead of in a thin point, like most other liners. You can therefore apply this using just the top edge tip, to only define the outer parts of the lips, or using it’s full-on surface area to fill in the entire lip area. I’m giving props to Dior here because this is a really cool design.

Take a look at my lips half filled in by the liner, and then below that, with the same half filled in and the other half lined only.

The first time I put on this liner I went to the mirror I was totally disappointed. Even after waiting about five minutes for the magic to happen, I still didn’t think it had done anything to my lip coloring. So that’s when I decided to swatch it on half of my mouth only. I’m really happy I did that, because you can definitely see the color it produces. It’s not harsh or garish like the lip liners I’ve avoided. (Obviously I don’t generally use lip liners. In fact I don’t believe I had a single one in my entire collection of makeup before buying this one. If all lip liners worked this subtly I would more seriously consider using them.)

Let me tell you about something I didn’t at all expect: this liner made my lips look bigger! I almost feel like it plumped up my lips physically. However it could be an illusion arising out of the shininess of the filled in portion. Have you ever seen a lip liner that produces a shiny result? I didn’t realize that was a “thing.”

This product gives off the same sweetly minty essence as the Dior Addict Lip Glow balms do, but it doesn’t have a taste when you lick your lips. Due to a combination of the pressure I needed to apply this liner, and the composition of the product itself, my lips were tingly for about 15 minutes post-application. The tingle is gentle and nothing like the tingle from a lip maximizer.

So almost in spite of myself I ended up loving this lip liner. Now I’m sad that it’s limited edition (and only available from Dior directly or from Sephora). Oh, and I’m also sad about the sky-high price of this stuff: $32 for .01 oz! (The Lip Glow itself is $33 for .12 oz).  Yes, you read it correctly that for about the same price you only get 1/10th of the product you get in the original Dior Addict Lip Glow balm.

Forgetting about the crazy price, I got to dreaming about what I’d create next if I were on the Dior beauty team. I would do a chunky pencil form of Addict Lip Glow, with a nice fat point and a glossy finish. Or maybe I’d do an Addict Lip Glow Gloss. Or maybe I’d do it all and more!

What fun that would be!

    1. For real? I had no idea! I was probably chained to a desk working and missed it! That’s awesome bit a bummer I missed it:)

      1. Your reviews of the color adapting lip balms have been great! And, FYI, Nordstrom has three exclusive new colors of the YSL tint-in-oil. There’s a “Red My Lips” that I am loving! My name is Geri and I’m a lip product addict…💋

        1. Geri, thank you for what you said and the info on the YSL shades, which I didn’t know about! Here I go to burn some dollars on my lips… again:))

  1. Love your review on this. I have the glow nail color by Dior and really like it. Thought about trying the lip door glow products!

    1. Thanks Karen!
      Dior nail glow looks so pretty in the bottle. I may need to try it. I’ve been loyal to Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat for years and it seems similar to that.
