Dior Metallics Collection Autumn 2017
Here is a first look at Dior’s sumptuous Metallics Colour Collection arriving on counters in early August.
Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup plays with clashing textures in tones: vibrant metallics and muted mattes to stunning effect. Its an autumnal palette that plays with metallic finishes and accents.
Star Product: Metalizer Eyes and Lips
This is one of the most innovative products coming for Fall 17. It’s a hybrid product that can be used on lips and eyes – on its own or over shadows or lipsticks. The Metalizer boasts metal-effect pigments encapsulated in an ultra-creamy, quick-drying texture that feels weightless and promises long-wear. Apply the product with your finger to leave a light veil of colour with a chrome effect on the eyelids. If you prefer a bolder finish, apply with a brush. It will last up to 12 hours. Choose from five shades: hypnotic charcoal, bluish pink, pink champagne, coppery orange, plum or bronze. The Copper Power shade is the standout. It looks phenomenal on lips or eyes.
Dior’s wildly popular 5-Couleurs eye palettes have become an obsession for Philips who is constantly working to improve the colours and textures. Each of the Paradoxical Light palettes features shadows in matte, satiny, glittery and shiny. Hypnotize contains warm brown, gold and chocolate tones around an exuberant brick shade. Magnetize starts from an almost frosted grey to explore a cooler scheme ranging from platinum and silver to fiery charcoal.
Groomed Brows: Peter’s looks emphasize full brows so he’s developed Diorshow Bold Brow to achieve a lush brow shape easily. The formula is enriched with microfibres in a mousse-serum. It boasts a mix of vitamins (E, B5 and B8) to help fortify brows instantly and over time with regular use. Choose from light, medium and dark.
New Rouge Dior shades: To complete the look, Philips offers five new Rouge Dior lipstick shades. Sensual Matte is a pretty irreverent beige. Hypnotic Matte is a rich rosewood. Eccentric is a rosy brown that Peter describes as having strong sex appeal. Enigmatic is a dramatic wine red. And the iconic 999 orange-red now comes in a metallic version.
The finishing touch is Dior Vernis in 612 Metallics, a gleaming grey metallic hue.
