I’ve been in a long-term relationship for more than 5 years…with Dior Lip Glow. I love it so much that my review of Dior Lip Glow was one of my first blog posts. But I like to keep my options open, so I was delighted to receive the NoTS Lip Shimmer Gloss for review from Q-Depot. The NoTS is just one of many “customized pink” lippies (i.e., uses that fancy mood-ring technology) knocking off the Dior–and just one of many that I personally own.
So how does this Korean lip balm compare to the beauty that started it all? Read on, and for good measure, I also compare it to the e.l.f. Studio Gotta Glow Lip Tint, a recent budget entrant.
Mmm, I’m having sweet flashbacks to “My Love From Another Star” thanks to the Lip Alive Color Mousse in 03 Sweet Raspberry by the Korean brand NoTS ($32 for 5g; provided for consideration by Q-depot). NoTS–which stands for Noble Through Skin–is a cruelty-free* line of skincare with a few select makeup products.
