The beloved Dior Addict line claims its L.A. love story

Peter Philips, color master and creative and image director of Christian Dior Makeup, looked to the City of Angels for inspiration when creating Dior Addict Lacquer Plump, the newest addition to the cult-status Dior Addict line. “L.A., known for its amazing light and its cool, relaxed attitude, is a platform for self-expression and creativity,” Philips explains. “The Dior Addict line is where we play the most with effects and textures. The goal was to offer something surprising, different,” he adds. “Lacquer Plump is a liquid, but applies as gloss, which creates a different sensation. And the stain formula means that the color tint will last much longer.” The line comes in a variety of hues, from classics to neon colors. His advice on choosing shades? “Glossy gives an on-the-go kind of look, while glitter lips show your sparkly side. Be careful [whom] you kiss,” Philips cautions. “Not everyone appreciates a glitter trace!” dior.com
