Your BEST Dior Lipstick Shades
In 1947, Christian Dior revolutionized women’s wardrobes with the New Look silhouette. That year, he also changed haute couture beauty deciding to “dress women’s smiles” with a true red lipstick. Dior celebrates this moment with 50 shades of Rouge Dior Lipstick. Dior’s Angie Semple handpicks the very best shades for your skin tone, personality and sense of style.
Launch: 50 Rouge Dior Lipsticks
The quote: “I created this Rouge Dior collection so women can choose and change shades to express themselves.” – Peter Philips, Creative & Image Director of Dior Makeup
Backstory: Christian’s scarlet dresses in 1953 were created with ‘shock factor’ in mind. He named them ‘Scream’, ‘Zinia’, and Satan and used shades of poppy, madder & geranium. To complete the look, he developed eight limited edition shades of red lipstick housed in a bullet with obelisk-shaped cap.
New texture: What’s new for autumn 2016, is an ultra-matte texture in a hydrating formula. Mango butter, hyaluronic acid and aroleat samphira provide 16 hours of comfort without drying or streaking. The colour is also available in a satin finish.
Five colour families: To make the collection easier to shop and wear, Peter designed the shades in five colour families: the legendary reds, the passionate corals, the pretty pinks, the natural nudes and extremes.
