In Christian Dior’s early years as a designer, he was keen on exploring the visual and cultural magnificence beyond Europe, and Latin America became a source of inspiration for years to come. His global interests were evident in his designs. Vibrant colors, sophisticated fabrics like organza and silk, and ornamented details (often featuring feathers) exuded an exotic femininity and glamour. Drawing from nature’s tropical paradises, Dior takes a journey through Latin America once again to evoke the intoxicating aura of fresh greenery, glistening waters, and exotic creatures.
The Bird of Paradise collection embraces the vibrancy of nature and translates to versatile, wearable color for summer. Lips are inspired by tropic temperatures, while eyeshadow palettes feature a spectrum of luminous, marine blues, bamboo greens, and subtle accents of soft yellow for dramatic, shimmering lids inspired by the plumage of an exotic bird. A combination of bright pigments and rich textures celebrate summer’s energetic mix.
Nude Tan BB Crème: Dior has infused its original BB Crème with a natural bronzing agent. The exclusive Tan Beautifier complex works in combination with the sheer Complexion Corrector to enhance and prolong a natural healthy glow. In addition, Diorskin Nude BB Tan Crème features hydrating ingredients including jisten, mauve and hibiscus, as well as green, red, and white tea extracts to offer the same skin-illuminating effects as the original Diorskin Nude BB Creme, now with the added benefits of SPF 15. Available in two universal shades: 001 and 002.
Dior Jelly Lip Pen: Dior’s new Jelly Lip Pen is a true beauty multi-tasker. The exclusive jelly-like formula is available in three richly saturated hues – from golden sand to bright coral – offering an all-in-one treatment to deliver the hydration of a balm, high shine of a gloss, and intense pigment of a lipstick. This jumbo pencil sharpens with a simple twist, ideal for easy, smooth, touch-and- go application.
