This spring, Double Rouge lipstick by Dior plays on the contrast between a vibrant hue and a pastel shade: its creamy texture colours the lips like candy.
In a single application, Double Rouge produces an ombré effect with a highly pigmented satin contour and light-catching matte heart.
A formulation challenge: combining a pigmented satiny contour with a matte heart so that upon application the two shades work in harmony, with a sophisticated finish and an impression of volume.
546 Bubble Gum: a intense satiny and matte bright pink
322 Candy Cane: an intense satiny and matte garnet red,
353 Popsicle: an intense pearly and satiny magenta pink
656 Tutti Frutti: a satiny and matte peach pink
"The difficulty was finding the right combinations of a darker, satiny contour and a lighter, matte heart that would highlight the curve of the lips and thus simulate volume. It is an on-the-go product that is easy to wear and yet capable of recreating a professional makeup result.” Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup.
1. For bolder colour, start by applying Fix It in the center of the lips.
2. Then use Double Rouge directly on the lips, moving from the exterior to the interior in a single sweep.
