(New) Dior Addict Lipstick

Dior is, as they say, ‘on song’ with its recent lipstick innovations – and here’s another slick of genius. The reworked Dior Addict is fabulously (yet subtly) glossy – shot through with a ‘gel core’ featuring three of the shiniest oils used in cosmetics, so we’re told: moisturising, yet not greasy at all.

But what this lipstick also delivers – in 35 shades (including some spectacularly pearlescent options, perfect for the upcoming party season) – is unbelievable comfort. (We are especially loving deep berry Be Dior, which might have been invented for Jo.)

As comfortable as a feather bed. As comfortable as your softest, best-loved cashmere. Or rather, so comfortable you might just forget you’re wearing lipstick, till you catch sight of your smile in a mirror.
