Christian Dior once commented that, “elegance is that which is equally simple, cared for, natural and distinguished.” That could easily describe Dior’s latest beauty innovation “Rouge Dior Lip Baume”, arguably the French luxury brand’s most exciting launch this season. Think of it as lip care meets fashionable colour. The actual balm is exceptionally rich in natural lip origin lip care ingredients, ten times more so than a classic lipstick, so it is perfect for those who struggle with dry, chapped lips in winter months. At the heart of the formula is a star ingredient, Cristal Oil, developed in the Dior laboratories. It forms an extra-fine yet generous film on the lips that cares, revitalizes, protects and radiates colour. It doesn’t bleed and is soft but never greasy.
In keeping with Mr. Dior’s legacy, each of the 14 balms is named after the couturier’s love of gardens. Better yet, the slim-chic silhouette looks like a fashion accessory or piece from the Dior jewelry salon. The Dior motif, a cannage-engraved silver band, and a sloping edge make this Autumn’s must-have beauty accessory.
“Appearance can be transformed by just a hint of colour.
– Christian Dior
