Trends usually filter down, from high to low. Those harem pants YSL sent down the runway last year? They’re just arriving at your local H&M.
But this spring, Dior Beauty is taking inspiration from the very makeup we wore when were kids.
Dior Addict Lip Glow is a balm that changes color according to your lip chemistry. Not only does the pink-beige color turn a different shade depending on the person, but it also varies depending on your mood. Feeling passionate? It just might turn red. Feeling low-key? Try a soft pink. And because burnt lips never look good, the balm has SPF protection, too.
While Dior certainly isn’t the first beauty brand to get moody—Too Faced has its Smurf gloss
and Smashbox has its O-Plump
—it just might be the most luxe. That it’s also helped launch some of the biggest makeup trends (black polish, anyone?) could be a sign that when it comes to lip gloss, the future is all about getting moody.
