Review of Christian Dior Creme de Rose 001 by enamacheylove
As a moisturizing product, this isn't all that great. I much prefer the la mer lip balm or by terry. However, I have to give this props for it's plumping ability. I have weird lips, when they dry up they shrivel up to half their size but with certain products they get nice and big. Actual lip plumpers rarely do this but they further dry out my already very dry lips. This is a really wonderful lip plumper that you can also put under lipstick. Like I said, it's not nearly as good as my la mer or by terry but it's also half the price so I can slather this on as much as I want and not feel guilty. It does leave my lips velvety soft and I don't find it too greasy, just enough. I also think the packaging is really sweet, albeit plain. It's flavorless but has a nice, very light and VERY true rose scent, so if you hate artificial scents, this is for you. All in all, I will definitely repurchase this because it's the best plumper I've tried and serves as an incredible lipstick base but I'll definitely stick to La Mer and By Terry for heavier moisturizing.
UPDATE: after using this for just two days my lips have gotten soo plump and a lot bigger. This is an amazing plumper if the cause of your skinny lips is dryness/ the elements.
UPDATE: I used to joke about getting a lip job because my lips were so skinny. After using this for a week, my friend exclaimed, "woah, I can't believe you actually got a lip job! But it looks so natural!" And its true, my lips are 3x as big. I went from having skinny fish lips to Megan Fox lips. Better yet, I finally can rock bold lips! This is most definitely an HG <3
UPDATE AFTER 6 MONTHS:
I just ran out of this after using it religiously and generously for half a year. At first I trued using burts bees lip balm because I didn't feel like spending the money. Oh my goodness, what a difference. My lips never seemed adequately moisturized and they started to get dry and skinny again. And then they started to peel like a mofo. So I quickly got a new pot of creme de rose and all I can say is wow! My lips are back to being luscious, and plump. And the plumpness is not something that wears off when the balm does, it lasts as long as I dont torture and dry my lips. Lip balm seems like one of those things that its crazy to spend so much $$ on but when I stopped using this, though only for a week, the difference was night and day, and burts bees is the best cheap lip balm I've used, so thats saying a lot. Oh, you know whats another great thing about this? After you use it there's always a little left on your fingertips, so I rub it on my cuticles and now I have happy lips and cuticles. The only con for this lip balm is that you'll probably suffer withdrawal symptoms if you run out. So always be stocked up.
