Dior Creme de Rose Lip Balm

Something that needs to be said up front:  I am a complete lip product junkie, and am completely aware of it!  In fact, I love it, it's one of my items that I have trouble functioning without, so, lip balms are essential for a happy MoreGun.  I'm not quite sure what drew me to Dior's Creme de Rose balm, but I ended up purchasing a pot of it, .25oz for $27, well worth it.

It comes in a darling white container, quite vintage, however, unnecessarily large if you plan on carrying it around.  The formula is a very feminine, soft light pink with a very intense rose smell.  It's texture is luxuriously thick, yet silky like satin sheets.  When it goes on it makes lips appear very smooth, feel very hydrated, and when I rub my lips together it feels like I'm, again, rubbing them on satin sheets and seems to last for about an hour and a half (pretty good in my book).  The only downside is that when it inevitably gets into your mouth, it tastes like soap!

The Creme de Rose  compound relies on a mixture of concentrated vitamins A & E, shea butter, and Rose of Damas oil, along with smaller amounts of various ingredients.   So far it appears to be a winner, I tend to move quickly through a lot of lip products, but I do see myself potentially coming back around to this one when it runs out.


Smooth, hydrate, and plump lips

Did It Accomplish this Function?
Sort of, it accomplishes the smoothing and hydration quite well, however, it is lacking in the plumping department.

Does it Have a Flavor?
VERY soapy

A slight shine at first, but it quickly subsides closer to a matte appearance

Texture and Heaviness
Satin Sheets

I really enjoy using this lip balm, there is a very spoiled feeling that comes from using such a richly scented and luxuriously smooth item that actually seems to be doing a lot of good for lips.  I will probably come back around to it if they ever find a way to quell that soapy taste.

Random Ingredient

Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer
Used to increase viscosity in cosmetics and absorbs oils.

In Technology

Clearly stolen from Memebase, but I think we can all agree that this is a proper technological usage of bubblewrap!
