Review and Swatches of Dior Beauty Addict Lip Glow Pomade Color Reviver Oil-Gel Care – Universal Pink – 001
Completely without warning Dior has added a new product to its “Addict Lip Glow” line – Dior Addict Lip Glow Pomade in Universal Pink – 001. You can thank me before you even read on, because I’m about to save you $33.
I just saw earlier this week that Sephora was selling this, before I had even heard the first rumblings about it! The concept for this pomade is like Dior’s other Addict Lip Glow color changing/reviving products (reviewed here and here). But the execution is simply disappointing.
First of all, the second ingredient in the “pomade” is the dreaded, cheap, ridiculously unnecessary, mineral oil. That fact alone makes me feel angry (for having wasted my money on designer petroleum). And the fact that Dior didn’t publicize the ingredients (via Sephora.com) is infuriating to me!
Then, the product itself could not have disappointed me more. Why, you ask? Here it is: there was very little visible color change on my lips from this product. I had to apply a lot of it to one side of my mouth to get noticeable color. The same lack of affect showed itself when I swatched the pomade on my hand and waited 5 whole minutes. The potency of this pomade is just so very low. If you’re looking for glow you’ll need to go back to the original stick form of Dior Addict Lip Glow.
And finally, maybe I’m just bitter about having purchased $33 petroleum jelly, but I also do not like the feeling of the pomade, which is very thin and liquidy (courtesy of the petroleum!? I’m not crazy, right?). I like my lip glosses to have some thickness and tackiness, and this didn’t provide either. Dior had it right with one thing though – naming this “pomade” was a safe bet because it doesn’t qualify as either a gloss or a balm. It’s just goop. (Oh, but it also annoys me that Dior named this “pomade” though, because that makes me think of a hair product. But I don’t want to get too ridiculous here or anything…)
Take a look:
In case you should need me to summarize: This pomade is basically a minty scented petroleum jelly with a dash of color changing chemical, in a Dior package.
You’re welcome (that I saved your money – XX <– insert here an emoticon of me feeling good about myself).
