New & Noteworthy: Dior Addict Lacquer Plump

Dior Addict Lacquer Plump & Lacquer Stick

I can always think of a good excuse for a new lipstick, and summer happens to be rife with them! There are patio brunches, parties, bridal and baby showers, and let's not forget wedding season. That's where the new Dior Addict Lacquer Plump ($43) comes in. Billed as "the first plumping lacquered lip ink," Dior's latest claims to deliver long-lasting colour along with plumping and hydration benefits. In other words, it sounds like a perfect-for-all-occasions lip colour you'll reach for time and again because it makes a bold statement and feels great on the lips. Ready for a closer look?

It was so nice to escape from everyday life for a couple of days and unplug for a bit. All the details on where we went and what we did after the jump! (Spoiler: It involves a lot of food.)
