**Update 4/10/15...the coveted Dior Coral Lip Glow is back in stock at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Sephora! Here is a quick visual ode to the trepidatious-to-locate Christian Dior Lip Glow Color Revival Balm in Coral #04. A limited-edition Spring 2014 release back in January, this vibrant departure from the standard pink Lip Glow (which morphs to a very bright, hot pink on my lips in no more than three seconds) is actually more wearable for me...the coral tone is sophisticated and decidedly pretty.
Kindly scroll on for swatches and images of the Dior Coral Lip Glow in action as well as the Bottom Line...

Retailing for $32, this formula is extremely hydrating; one swipe and my lips are enveloped in a cushiony balm that lasts for hours. The scent is subtle...simultaneously sweet and slightly minty and the initial pale peach deepens to a lush, sheer coral pink in mere minutes. It's the quintessential hybrid of lip care and pronounced color!
Here's the official word from Sephora:
What it is:A sheer balm that enhances your natural lip color while moisturizing and protecting the skin.
What it does:
Awaken and enhance the natural beauty of your lips with this unique balm. Formulated with color reviver technology, this silky lipstick reacts with the chemistry of your lips to create a special shade that will last all day. The addition of SPF 10 will keep you protected, while hydrating mango butter and loofah extract nourish for beautiful, luscious lips.

When I am in the mood for something a bit more creamy and pale, I like to add a touch of Tom Ford Nude Vanille or Marc Jacobs Strange Magic to create the perfect baby coral pink lip.

Bottom Line: The fact that the Dior Coral Lip Glow (now available at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Sephora as of 4/10/15) sold out in a matter of less than two months demonstrates that consumers were ready for a new incarnation of this hydrating, transformative wonder. I hope that Dior pays heed to this undeniable demand and decides to make Coral 04 a permanent member of the Christian Dior family...it's just that pretty! I wish you the best in tracking this shade down...as we beauty lovers well know, the Internet is a cornucopia of opportunity when it comes to procuring even the most elusive of limited-edition beauty products.
xoxo and have a lovely week...Eve Lom Lift Foundation (with swatches galore!) is slated to go live on Tuesday ; )
