Inspired by professional techniques, Double Rouge combines two makeup trends: matte and metal.
In a single application, it produces an ombré effect with a highly pigmented matte contour and light-catching metal heart.
"The difficulty was finding the right combinations of darker, matte contour and a lighter, pearly metal heart that would highlight the curve of the lips and thus give the appearance of 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 for Dior Makeup
Combine a pigmented matte contour with a metal heart: a formulation challenge to achieve two shades that work in harmony upon application by creating a sophisticated finish and an optical illusion of volume.
For Double Rouge, Peter Philips created 4 colour families: fun and sophisticated reds, exhilarating corals, electric purply pinks, and nudes that flatter all types of beauty.
4 star shades set the tone for the collection: - 999 MATTE METAL, a true red with a golden heart that subtly plays with the scarlet matte contour. - 510 JUNGLE BEIGE, that creates stunning lips to take on the "urban jungle". - 992 POISON PURPLE, a deep purple with a metallic heart of gold and purply shimmer. - 288 MISS CRUSH, a spectacular pink with a pearly heart.
For bolder colour, start by applying Fix It in the center of the lips. Then use Double Rouge directly on the lips, moving from the outside inwards in a single sweep.
