We Tested Dior's New Berry Lip Glow on 3 Different Skin Tones—See the Photos

When a buzzy new beauty product launches, we Byrdie editors try our best to get our hands on it first. Not just because we want what all the cool kids are talking about, either—by nature, we're beauty skeptics and like to analyze the gritty details to determine whether or not a product lives up to the hype. (For proof, check out our honest reviews of Glossier's new moisturizer and Julep's just-released sunscreen.)

So when news dropped that Dior was launching a new berry shade of its cult-classic Addict Lip Glow ($33), we had a tube delivered overnight. (After all, lip balm is kind of our thing here at Byrdie, and Dior's formula is one of our favorites.) The new shade offers the same hydrating, nourishing ingredients we've loved for years—it's packed with wild mango and Luffa cylindrica, plus SPF 10. But what caught our eye is that the new Lip Glow shade seems richer than the lilac, coral, and rose hues currently available. Dior calls Berry #006 a "sheer plum" that "instantly awakens the lips, leaving behind a kissable wash of color."

All things considered, this seemed like it had the potential to be the "perfect" lip balm. But how does it look and feel in real life? To find out, we put the product to the ultimate test: Editors with three different skin tones tried it out and reported back. Keep scrolling for our honest reviews (with photos)!
