God-awful rhyming aside… :D
In the Dior Cherie Bow collection, there were 3 items that caught my eye for being “interesting”. The first was the Twin Set eyeshadows. Despite not quite hitting the mark, I found them interesting. The other 2 interesting items were the Glow-y ones – Nail Glow and Lip Glow.
What intrigued me most was the concept behind both these items that come in clear pink form, but which react quite differently when applied.
I maybe wrong but I seem to recall Dior making a Lip Glow or similar product a couple of years back with the same concept. Perhaps it was a lipbalm? I can’t recall off hand so if anyone can help please do! The Lip Glow Color Reviver Gloss is a clear lipgloss with a jelly texture and tints lips a clear translucent pink and reacts to your body chemistry so different people would get a different result. I am usually a little wary of these, but was gratified to realise that it does give my lips a lovely juicy tint and revives its colour quite naturally and prettily, without turning it bright fuchsia. Highly promising product!
The Nail Glow is another very interesting and innovative product. It is a transparent pink in the bottle and is supposed to give you an “instant French manicure” in that it enhances the pink of your nail bed and the whites of your tips. I was a little nonplussed by this one earlier when I first set eyes on it. I don’t have long nails and I wasn’t sure how anyone with short nails could benefit from this. But as is wont to happen, I was sorely mistaken and this has become one of my favourite nail polishes/tints/glow thingies.
