When it comes to staying power, there are hundreds of lip ranges out there that promise budge-free beauty, but few are actually comfortable enough to wear in the long run. The properties that make them bind to your lips for hours on end also make your lips stiff and dry, which can make the wearer all too conscious of discomfort.
Dior has been innovating in the field of beauty since 1953, evolving its popular ‘Rouge’ line for long-lasting wear that is flattering, versatile, hydrating, and silky smooth. The formula for the new Dior ‘Rouge Dior Liquid’ line is especially pleasing as the intense color formulations – which come in matte, satin, and metallic finishes – stay crisp and vivid all day long without sacrificing comfort. What’s more is that Peter Phillips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, made sure the range was inclusive, with 29 shades in total to complement every skin tone.
“It’s true that I love extreme colors like true reds and blacks, but here, I was fascinated by the challenge to create faux-natural shades,” he shared. “Thinking of the numerous women who wear rosewood, I endeavored to build a palette that moves subtly from beige to an almost chocolate pink. Depending on the natural color of the lips and the skin tone, ‘Dior Rouge Liquid’ provides a natural, chic look.”
Additionally, the new ‘Double Rouge’ line adds an intriguing element to lipstick application by creating a natural ombré effect from a densely pigmented outer ring and a metallic core. For those who love experimenting with new products, this one is enticing enough to buy multiples of, as each shade exudes a different effect.
