I’m not a beauty product addict, but I do love a select few products. I have a weakness for lip balms, particularly Fresh Sugar lip treatment. After all, everyone (including my husband!) needs lip balm right? Dior Crème de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm has been on my radar ever since I read some glowing reviews on Sephora. I decided to order one during Sephora’s annual VIB sale so I could see if it was worth the hype.
A good lip product is one I’ll come back to time and time again. It is a staple makeup item and one I will use most frequently (though I am a bit lazier with makeup these days!) I have a fondness for tinted balms because they are light, moisturizing and convenient. I don’t like a full makeup look everyday and prefer the subtle flush from a nice lip balm. Dior Lip Glow is a lip balm I’ve read about previously and I wanted to try it for myself.
I liked the consistency of the Dior Lip Glow. It wasn’t waxy, but smooth and held up well in a balm stick format. It also left my lips pretty well moisturized for a few hours. But I really liked the soft pink tint it left on me. It really was like a little lip glow! So my Dior Lip Glow review is pretty positive though I wish it was a little more affordable!

Why are French ladies considered perpetually chic?
One of their secret weapons is the prevalence of established home-grown fashion houses, like that of Christian Dior. Christian Dior created his namesake brand in 1946 and created a “new look” of women’s dressing that controversially included corsets, shoulder pads, boned bodices, and flared petticoats that emphasized women’s curves. He created looks that were carefree, fun, and undeniably feminine. This vibe certainly contributes to the aesthetic of the brand’s jewelry as well.
A popular piece of jewelry was the “Oui” ring that debuted a few years ago. This delicate scripted word is finished off with a small diamond and was an instant hit. While the Dior version is sold out, there are a few versions on Etsy that are equally as fun, though without the diamond.
Yes (oui), indeed!
So would you be savvy or splurge?
Oui ring, Laladesignstudio on Etsy, $48
Oui ring, Streetbauble on Etsy, $45
Oui ring, Christian Dior, $675 (not sold now)
Watch the consideration and attention that goes into the four months of making the Milly Carnivore ring and then start to understand why it could cost…ok I can’t even find the costs so you know it’s gotta to be more than a month’s worth of Starbuck’s. But I think this would make a great anniversary present (right Mr. Spend ‘n Chomp?)
