As a beauty writer I've tried hundreds of lip products, and this one always comes out on top

If you have dry lips, then you will love this.

There was a time when you couldn't open Instagram or TikTok without seeing the Dior Addict Lip Glow Oil. In fact, after going viral, it was almost impossible to get your hands on it.

As someone who has tested their fair share of lip products over the years, I am not usually one to get excited over a new launch. The thing is, I have quite dry lips, and I'm yet to find a product that lasts for more than an hour without flaking off.

However, the thought of a lip oil definitely intrigued me, and after seeing the stunning selection of colours, I knew that I had to give the Dior one a go.

I opted for the shade 'Rosewood', a gorgeous glossy pink that I knew I could wear on a daily basis. Keep on scrolling for my honest review, and for more inspiration, don't forget to check out our edits of the best foundation, the best concealer and even the best mascara.

The first thing that I fell in love with when receiving this product was the packaging. I mean, just look at it. In true Dior style, the lip oil is enclosed in the chicest of tubes, and I always make sure to have one in my handbag when I leave the house.

The formula itself is quite simply perfection. I thought it might be sticky or greasy, but I couldn't have been more wrong. It is so hydrating, and leaves you with a glossy, high-shine finish.

When it comes to the colour payoff, the oil acts similar to a stain, and leaves you with a long-lasting lip colour that stays all day.

I am yet to find a lip product that I enjoy wearing as much as this. The large applicator makes it easy to apply, and I don't find myself having to top it up constantly throughout the day. I also find that I can skip lip balm completely thanks to how hydrating it is.

If there is one make-up product recommendation that you take from me, make it this one. Trust me, it is definitely worth the hype.
