There's no shortage of lip products on the market, but trying to find one that both looks and feels good is no small feat. Thankfully, I've found something that checks both those boxes. As a result, it's my go-to everyday lip product: Dior Addict Lip Glow.

Why it's a great gift: Dior Addict Lip Glow is a tinted balm that comes in a range of colors, from light pink hues to reds and even purples. It's incredibly smooth and hydrating and super easy to apply. (I can do it without a mirror, which, trust me, is really saying something.) It provides just the right pop of color, though you can choose whether you want a lighter shade like Rose Gold or a more visible shade like Berry. 

The packaging makes for great presentation, as the product comes in a shiny silver box, and the balm itself features a pretty light pink cap and sleek silver tube. This is a lip product I constantly keep in my purse or backpack, since it gives me just the right amount of color and is subtle enough for everyday wear. It also doesn't fade unevenly throughout the day, so you don't have to worry about reapplying to cover up any weird color patches. Whoever you're gifting this to is sure to become as hooked as I am. 

What you'll pay: Dior Addict Lip Glow sells for $38, and you can get it from stores like Sephora, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Dillard's and the Dior website.
