“I love red; it is the colour of life” — Christian Dior
The year was 1949 when Christian Dior created a lipstick that he would send to his most treasured clients, as a way of thanking them for their patronage. Four years later in 1953, he created 2 shades: N°9 and N°99 (his favourite numbers) that models wore for one of his runway shows. Fast forward many years later, and the House’s by-now iconic shade was relaunched as N°999 in homage to its predecessors, but reinvented in so many wonderful new formulas and textures. Classic, sexy, empowering and absolutely timeless … that’s what red is all about.
How does one capture the scent of “joy” or that of any emotion, for that matter? Well, if you’re Dior’s master perfumer François Demachy, you tap into your inner feelings, play with a bounty of ingredients, add spokesperson Jennifer Lawrence into the mix, et voilà: Joy Eau de Parfum is born. Ok, so obviously there’s so much more to it than that, but doesn’t my version sound like fun?
Just one look at the Dior en Diable Collection for Fall 2018, and there’s no doubting that Peter Philips — Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup — was inspired by Fall’s glorious riot of colour. The rich autumnal shades are interspersed with some unique pops of colour to keep things interesting, and even though I’m not exactly looking forward to the upcoming cooler weather, these pieces are making a strong case for the season, dammit. #resistanceisfutile
Dior has just upped the lipstick game with the recent launch of Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge — a range of 26 long-wearing shades housed in covetable red lacquered casings, along with Rouge Dior Ink Lip Liner — a hybrid lip product that just might be masquerading as a pen (not really, but still …). Gorgeous exteriors, innovative formulas, killer colours … what more does a girl need?

Today’s post focuses on several new launches from Dior, along with an industry standard — the foundation — that for some inexplicable reason, I hadn’t tried … until now. Don’t get me wrong; I was not only aware of the love makeup artists & consumers have for this product, but I happen to already own several shades as well, so when the matching new setting spray and brush came in, I was fired up to give everything a go. Adding to the common thread of long-lasting makeup, these new Dior brow products seemed to fit right in … and thus, a post is born.
