I've had my Dior Lip glow color reviver balm for quite a while and it's soon hitting the pan.
I love this kind of lip balm, that gives that natural pink fleshy colour to your lips and nourishes them at the same time. The Dior Lip Glow is, no surprises here, rather on the pricey side. So when I saw that Catrice had launched their own lip glow I bought it without any hesitations.
The Catrice lipglow was less than 5 euros while the Dior was more than 20!
Bargain. Well it's good to be cheaper but it has to be just as good to be a real dupe!
On the packaging side, they look totally different. Catrice, on the left, has a shiny packaging with some pink writings. Dior on the right, has the girliest packaging out there. Baby pink with a sophisticated way of getting the lipstick out. I like the Dior packaging MUCH better but I think that for the price, the Catrice one is far from being tacky so it's good!
The look of the Catrice lipstick is really different from the Dior one but texture and result wise I feel like they are COMPLETE dupe. The finish of both products are absolutely similar. Über moisturizing balms with a pink fleshy natural finish on the lips that lasts.
I like that the Catrice lip glow is so funky and bright orange with that jelly transparent finish.
This is a swatch of the Catrice balm. I can tell from using my Dior lip glow for so long that the finish is the exact same one. I would have to say that on the scent side, the Dior one smells slighty better though!
Overall, I LOVE my Catrice balm. It's inexpensive, super moisturizing and perfect for a daily use.
If you're on a low budget and really digging that lip glow look, this product is right up your alley!
