The House of Dior just unveiled Rouge DiorUltra Rouge, its new long-lasting lipstick, as unforgettable as a kiss. This is the first incredibly long-wearing lipstick with the comfort of a lip ink: a true revolution in the history of lipstick. Ultra Rouge offers a lightweight, ultra-comfortable formula and all the color of a high-pigmentation lipstick. The colors seem more saturated with a luminous, semi-matte finish for incredible sensoriality and hydration. Natalie Portman stars in the ad campaign. The actress has been the face of Dior since 2010.
Born backstage and put to the test by Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, Dior Backstage Airflash foundation is relaunching with new shades and a brand new professional routine complete with the Radiance Mist and the Buffing Brush. This best-selling spray foundation is guaranteed to perform under pressure and create a flawless complexion that’s always runway-ready.
Infused with light-diffusing pigments and Dior’s blend of oils, this featherweight fluid melts seamlessly onto the skin for a buildable, airbrushed effect that instantly boosts radiance. The texture is thin and fluid for an intense glow. Pigments adhere to the skin for color that stays true, while the weightless, water-resistant formula feels like a second skin and provides up to 12 hours of wear.
Fronted by Dior Makeup ambassador Bella Hadid, the full lineup is showcased in a video, sporting a wide range of makeup looks you can achieve with the products at hand. ”With Dior Backstage, I want everyone to have access to my expertise,” said Peter Phillips, adding that the items were created to reflect a real makeup artist’s survival kit.
Captured by the photographer Cass Bird, Bella Hadid shows off the new additions to the Diorshowmakeup range. Born from the energy to be found backstage and inspired by the House’s makeup artists, the Diorshow line redefines the eyes. This season, Diorshow Pump’n’Volume mascara, developed to give extreme volume, comes in a waterproof version and in four new neon hues, available in limited edition. The eye range also sees the addition of two new products. In tribute to the Dior art of color, Diorshow On Stage Liner appears in fifteen vibrant shades and three effects: matte, vinyl and pearly. Lastly, Diorshow All-Day Brow Ink is an ink for brows with tattoo-effect coloration, guaranteeing a perfect line.
“Bella’s eyes are amazing, so choosing her as an eye makeup ambassador was a no-brainer. For this campaign, we designed some extremely creative looks, and I was able to play with color to showcase different possibilities, but there are so many others!” says Peter Philips. And so Diorshow On Stage Liner Noir is matched with new pop shades of Diorshow Pump’n’Volume mascara, and the liner’s vibrant hues combine and work together to create an assertive look in a play of bold color.
