Dupe Alert: Dior Jelly Lip Pen in 656 Gaia and Catrice Pure Shine Colour Balm in Don`t Think Just Pink

Above: Catrice Don't Think Just Pink, Below: Dior Gaia

  As promised, here is the comparison swatches of the alleged dupe for the Dior Jelly Lip Pen in 656  Gaia which s the Catrice Pure Shine Colour Lip Balm in 020 Don`t Think, Just Pink. Well, the better question is; Is it just a close dupe or is it a better dupe? Let`s find out, shall we?

As you can see from the above swatches, the Dior is pinker than the Catrice. However, both are in the same midtone pink colour family.

The Dior Jelly Lip Pen is more sheer in pigmentation than the Catrice Pure Shine Colour. Dior Jelly Lip Pen requies more application to get a visible colour payoff.

Both are glossy on the lips but the Dior Jelly Lip Pen is a bit more glossy due to its sheer pigmentation making it more emolient and thus more glossy.

Lasting Power: 
You probably can tell that Catrice Pure Shine Colour Lip Balm won this category. Dior Jelly Lip Pen barely stays on the lips for the first 2 hours.

Both are moisturizing and I have not had problems with them drying my lips out. They don`t accentuate the lip lines as well.

I think Catrice Pure Shine Colur Lip balm is in fact a better dupe. I would recommend it more than I would the Dior Jelly Lip Pen.

What do you think guys? Is it a close dupe or is it a better a dupe. Let me know by commenting below.
Pssst, don`t forget to participate in the giveaway!!! 

Talk to you soon lovelies!!
