I noticed some people on the Weekend Open Thread were wondering about a Dior Addict Lip Glow Balm dupe, and I thought, oh, I should mention this lip balm I got in Koreatown. But then I couldn’t find it, and then by the time I did, the weekend was over.
ANYHOO: I had some time to kill recently while meeting a friend for lunch so I spent far too long in a little K-beauty makeup store — so much swatching! This one caught my eye near the end of my visit, and it was a bit on the pricey side for K-beauty ($20), but I liked the formula so much I spent a bit of time figuring out which color I liked best.
(Honestly, all of the colors were great. Not Pomelo because I’m not an orange girl, but I was stuck between a few different ones.)
I ended up with Dew Drop, which I see is their most popular color, and, after someone asked about it on the Weekend Open Thread, it occurred to me that this is a great Dior Addict Lip Glow Balm dupe. The formulas are very similar: a thick, moisturizing balm that isn’t sticky and lasts for a few hours. The color is very much MLBB, but buildable — for me one swipe of this one has more color payoff than the Dior Addict Lip Glow one, but only slightly.
Like I said, it’s a bit on the pricey side compared to other K-beauty things (I got a lot of other fun lipglosses for around $10 each), but compared to the $40 price point for Dior, it’s not so bad.
