Natural Berry Lips

Who doesn’t like to have a beautiful natural pout? DIOR has two products that I absolutely adore. Easy to apply, they immediately protect and enhance the lips while providing deep nourishment. The best is that they lastingly bring out your natural lips color thanks to their color reviver technology that adapts to the pH of lips to reveal a custom glow for up to six hours. The formula saturates the lips with nutrients, and revitalizes them immediately and day after day, lips are more beautiful, even bare, after 5 days of application.

I always start the application with the iconic DIOR ADDICT LIP GLOW in 006 Berry. Featuring cherry oil, shea butter, and sunflower waxes, it offers both custom color and lip care.

Afterwards, as a top coat for volumizing shine, I apply the DIOR ADDICT LIP GLOW OIL in 006 Berry that instantly nourishes, protects, softens and revitalizes the lips. Its non-greasy, non-sticky oil texture pushes the boundaries of shine and creates a smoothing film that shapes the lips with an almost magnifying mirror-shine effect. Multi-use, it can also be worn equally well on its own, or as a primer under lipstick.

Both products are available in a couture case and in several shades to suit all skin tones. I love the berry hue as it makes teeth appear much whiter thanks to its bluish undertone.

La Vie en Rose – Dior Chérie Bow


There are two fashion labels at the moment that you should be watching very closely, Saint Laurent with Hedi Slimane at the helmet and Dior designed by Raf Simons who has maintained the high-end essence that the French house is known for while maintaining his own simplistic and futuristic aesthetic. The bar was set incredibly high for the designer of Belgian origin, but Simons did an amazing job, incorporating Monsieur Christian Dior’s classic shape’s and cut, while modernizing them at the same time. I am crazy for his S/S 2013 collection.


The same goes for Dior’s newest make-up collectionCHERIE BOW that has just hit the shelves. The bow was Christian Dior’s favorite final touch, a timeless and emblematic code of the House of Dior. The “Chérie Bow” spring 2013 collection draws inspiration from the feminine, playful effect of the bow featuring shades of powder pink, deep rose and classic shades of grey, anchored in deep black. Enjoy exploring the beauty must-haves:


Chérie Bow – CHF 115.00
Make-up palette for glowing eyes & lips
One Shot

The Dior Chérie Bow Palette features the classic Fontanges Bow reinvented by Dior fashion jewelry designer Camille Miceli with three elements that come together to form a delicate bow shape, sealed with a pearl duo clasp reminiscent of one of Miceli’s iconic designs. Composed of three eye shadows, a black eyeliner and lipgloss, the Rose Poudre harmony features pale pinks, grey and deep charcoal eye shadows as well as deep black eyeliner and a fresh pink gloss to finish the look.


5 Couleurs Eyeshadows – CHF 92.00
Available in 724 Rose Ballerine and 854 Rose Charmeuse (as pictured) 
One Shots

For the first time ever, the houndstooth check motif cherished by Christian Dior decorates the 5 Couleurs Palette. 2 colour harmonies, one based on a contrast of bright pinks with black, the other based on pale pinks brightened by a shimmering white, explore the interplay and effects of  materials and textures. Under the influence of Chérie Bow, the Dior 5 Couleurs Palette imprints the eyes with ultra-couture style.


Diorblush – CHF 67.50
Available in 659 Tender Coral and 729 Pink Happiness (as pictured)
One Shots

Two new colour harmonies: peach and a fresh rosy shade with which your cheekbones flush like you just have taken a walk outdoors.


Dior Addict Lipstick – CHF 48.50
437 Charmante, 457 Candide (One Shot), 467 Bow (One Shot) and 687 Espiègle

3 Couleurs Smoky – CHF 71.50

Matching the Dior S/S 2013 collection in perfection.


Twin Set – CHF 50.00
060 Grey Sigh, 090 Fishnet Black, 530 Beige Ribbon and 840 Ballerina Pink

The new eye shadow pen, Twin Set, is an essential for eyes. It is inspired by the secrets of backstage make-up artists who apply a rich shadow then set it with powder for long wear. At one end, a super-soft pencil applies a veil of dense, satin or iridescent eye shadow. At the other end, a foam blender impregnated with shimmering powder makes your colour sparkle.


Dior Addict Lip Glow – CHF 46.00
Color Reviver Gloss
(One Shot)

This new limited edition gloss revives your natural lip colour and gives it the perfect glow.

Dior Nail Glow – CHF 37.00

To reveal the natural beauty of your nails, Dior has invented Nail Glow. A treatment nail varnish that makes pink pinker, and brightens nail tips for an instant French manicure look.


Dior Vernis – CHF 37.00

Diorskin Nude BB Crème – CHF 62.00
Available in three different shades 001, 002 and 003

Once you are at the counter, have a look at the new must-have in the art of natural beauty: Diorskin Nude BB Crème. The new generation beauty balm helps you to reveal Dior’s beloved rosy complexion, “Le Teint de Rose”. It works wonders and is just perfect to achieve a lovely complexion during the warm summer months without melting away.
