Smooth lips are a beauty must have, but boy, it’s a struggle to keep your pout in perfect condition. No wonder lip balms are in every girl’s essential beauty kit. Apart from the old toothbrush trick (gently scrubbing dry skin on lips with an old toothbrush for a completely free exfoliation), there aren’t many things out there that truly address the problem (an exception being Lisa Hoffman’s Lip Exfoliating Cream). Add lipstick to already dry lips and it’s a certain receipe for sucked lemon face. So, Dior’s late August launch of a hydrating serum infused lip treatment is set to send a buzz of excitement to the deeply dehydrated. Dior’s stats state an immediate 25% increase in volume and firmness, 41% more moisturized lips and 24% smoother lips. And, it’s mainly down to the beauty wonder ingredient, Hyaluronic acid, in this case, encapsulated in microspheres. Ultimately, Rouge Dior Serum de Rouge is a lipstick with a formula that comprises 20% skincare ingredients. I haven’t tried it yet, but am hoping this could be the answer to my winter prayers. £23 from 31st August.
