Plump It Up

CLEO (Malaysia) - - COVER STORY -

At the heart of the new Dior Ad­dict Ul­tra-Gloss is a revo­lu­tion­ary for­mula. Con­tain­ing a core chock­full of hyaluronic acid spheres that cap­ture and re­tain sur­round­ing wa­ter, it quenches lips, leav­ing them full and last­ingly mois­turised. And at the base of this sur­pris­ingly fluid for­mula, mir­ror-shine stretch oils smooth over the lips like a feath­er­weight film. The re­sult is a spec­tac­u­lar glossy ef­fect so fine, so sup­ple and light you al­most for­get it’s there. That hairstuck-to-your-mouth prob­lem too of­ten as­so­ci­ated with older for­mu­las? Gone, even with the wind. If pil­lowy Kylie Jen­ner lips are what you in­sist upon, you can drop the filler in­jec­tions, too. “It’s an ex­cit­ing time for make-up. There’s a real syn­ergy be­tween skin­care and cos­met­ics now, al­low­ing us to re­de­fine ev­ery­one’s ideal prod­uct. Ul­tra-Gloss de­liv­ers 15 per cent more vol­ume upon ap­pli­ca­tion, and af­ter four weeks of us­age, you’ll find your lips 10 per cent plumper,” he prom­ises. “You don’t want to look like you fell into a pot of gloss; bal­ance is key,” he says. “Pair­ing gloss with dewy skin is go­ing to be a bit much. But off­set­ting that high shine with lu­mi­nous vel­vet matte skin is what’s go­ing to keep your look con­trolled, so­phis­ti­cated and most im­por­tantly, chic.” And just like that, my go-to flu­oro matte lip be­came flat and fussy, and that much needed change came in the form of a fresh pop of gloss. Hav­ing hopped back on the wand wagon for a month now, I can’t be­lieve how long it took me to reach full cir­cle. To­day’s gloss is ap­proach­able and re­fined, with un­prece­dented shine. And if it’s ap­proved by Bey­oncé and Kim Kar­dashian, well, then, in the words of Lil ’ Mama, it’s all about “lovin’ lip gloss uni­ver­sal ” – colour me con­verted. DIOR AD­DICT UL­TRA GLOSS, RM113 EACH.
