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?

Colour:
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.

Pigmentation:
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.

Finish:
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.

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

Verdict: 
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.
