The House of Dior is as iconic as it gets when it comes to fashion and style. Founded by designer Christian Dior in 1946, Dior has risen to prominence in most fields of women's fashion and style, from haute couture to makeup and fragrance. Although many people cannot afford the runway styles of the House of Dior, its smaller arms, such as makeup, offer high-class style to any girl who wants it. The best Dior lipsticks offer women a variety of colors, finishes, and effects that are fun to use at home, work, and out on the town.
Following the trends of the 21st century, Dior Addict lipstick - part of the larger Dior Addict makeup line - is a hybrid between lipstick and lip gloss. Using 25 percent less wax than conventional lipstick and adding in a product the company calls "mirror jelly," users wear Dior Addict lipstick to create a plump. sheer look. The formula comes in three different color groups, named for their overall effect: Rock Icon, Glam Icon, and Doll Icon. Each color group offers users different shades, which range from sheer nudes to bold plums. There are a total of 56 different colors of Dior Addict lipstick, though some are retailer-exclusive.
Dior Addict Extreme
Available in only five shades, Dior Addict Extreme lipstick takes the effect of the main Addict line and ramps them up with bolder, brighter hues. Using four different waxes in its formula, Dior Addict Extreme aims to provide its users with long-lasting color and shine along with a comfortable, non-flaky feel. Distinguishable from the main Addict line thanks to its bold, shiny black case, Dior Addict Extreme's colors are limited to bright reds and pinks.
Dior Addict Tie Dye Edition
Yet another spinoff of the original Dior Addict, the Dior Addict Tie Dye edition lips tick uses the same high-gloss, low wax formula as the original Addict line, but offers users two colors in one stick for a unique blended look. Available in two options, Cosmic Pink and Hypnotic Plum, each tube of Dior Addict Tie Dye lipstick features a main color as its base with a contrasting color swirled in the shape of the Dior logo in its center. This combination allows the two colors to combine in a "tie dye" effect on the lips, offering a unique look every time it is applied.
Dior's take on long-lasting matte lipstick, everything about the Diorific line is styled alongside the company's legacy of haute couture. It comes in eight shades that range from nude to mauve, and is ensconced in a jewel-toned gold-colored tube. Despite its "matte" quality, the application of Diorific feels satin-like, similar to a cream lipstick rather than a long-wear matte. Not surprisingly, Diorific is more lightweight than other matte lipsticks, which explains this effect.
Updated to take away the waxy, heavy feeling some reviewers associated with Rouge Dior lipstick, this is Dior's signature lip color product. Each tube of Rouge Dior contains both Sea Fennel extract and hyaluronic acid, which serve the purpose of stimulating cellular renewal and physically plumping the lips for a runway-quality look. Rouge Dior's satin finish comes in a variety of seasonally rotated and classic colors, which include bold reds and pinks as well as sheer nudes, mauves, and plums.
Rouge Dior Baume
A unique benefit of Rouge Dior Baume is the combination of solutions it offers users, serving as both lip care and make up. An enhanced tinted lip balm, Rouge Dior Baume has more pigment than a typical gloss or balm. It remains subtle and classic and does not require the use of additional makeup products such as lip liner. The formula, which includes natural origin Crystal Oil, fills lines on the lips, moisturizes, and plumps in order to create a smoother, fuller, moister look and feel. Rouge Dior Baume comes in a variety of shades that range from subtle nudes to darker plums and mauves.How to Buy Dior Lipsticks on eBay

Christian Dior quotes. Dior (1905-1957) was an influential French fashion designer, most famous for inventing the New Look of the late 1940s.
Zest is the secret of all beauty. There is no beauty that is attractive without zest.
Simplicity, good taste and grooming are the three fundamentals of good dressing and these do not cost money.
Grooming is the secret of real elegance. The best clothes, the most wonderful jewels, the most glamourous beauty don't count without good grooming.
The colors of gray, pale turquoise and pink will prevail.
I will only say now that elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity. Outside this, believe me, there is no elegance. Only pretension.
Elegance is not dependent on money. Of the four things I have mentioned above, the most important of all is care. Care in choosing your clothes. Care in wearing them. Care in keeping them.
But it is possible for a woman to be elegant without spending very much money on her clothes, if she follows the basic rules of Fashion and is careful to choose the clothes that suit her personality.
Have you ever seen a woman enter a shop and ask for "something just like the one I'm wearing"?
––on what sustains fashion
The New Look brought me heavy mail. Letters arrived by the thousands––mostly enthusiastic but some indignant. A garage owner from Los Angeles wrote and told me that he had sworn to "tear me apart" on his next visit to Paris. According to him, it was my fault that his wife looked like a stuffed doll of the time of the Civil War.
I have designed flower women.
––on his own "New Look" style.
It is unforgivable to do what one doesn't love, especially if one succeeds.
I think we have to be aware that people are allowed to make mistakes in their life.
I brought back the neglected art of pleasing.
To manufacture emotion a man must have a working agreement with madness.
The rich live the same all over the world.
When I opened my couture house I decided to dress only the most fashionable women from the first ranks of society.
Women are most fascinating between the ages of thirty-five and forty, after they have won a few races and know how to pace themselves. Since few women ever pass forty, maximum fascination can continue indefinitely.
My dream is to save women from nature.
My weakness. is architecture. I think of my work as ephemeral architecture, dedicated to the beauty of the female body.
A woman's perfume tells more about her than her handwriting.
Women will be good for you and bring about your success.

This fall, Dior beauty reinvents its legendary eyeshadow palette as part of their '5 Couleurs Collection'. Graced with new textures and effects, the new 5 Couleur eyeshadow palettes come in a slimmer, navy blue case and focus on Dior's five favourite colours: red, grey, pink, black and blue.
"At the centre of the palette, the essential shade sets the tone. Around it four accessory shades create the style for a multi-faceted eye".
Like all Dior eyeshadow palettes, the upper trio of eyeshadows are grouped together to create a softer, more natural daytime look, while the bottom trio provides for a more dramatic, sultry look (of course, you can create your own combinations with each palette).
To complete the new Fall 2015 5 Couleurs Collection, Dior has selected a Dior Rouge lipstick and Dior Vernis nail polish to co-ordinate with, and 'accessorize' each of the five new eyeshadow palettes, creating the following sets: Bar Grey, Tutu Pink, Carré Bleu, Trafalgar Red and Pied-de-Poule Black.
Below is a closer look at three of the new Dior 5 Couleurs sets (the remaining two sets will be featured in an upcoming post).
"This season, Dior has created a new, terribly desirable grey, that is both elegant and casual making modern girls beautiful. Blend black and white, add a dose of asphalt and highlight with pearly pink. Alternate between matte, pearly and iridescent finishes. Indulge in texture, without worrying about lacking good taste. A hint of icy pink on your lips is heightened by deepest black on your nails"
Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in '056 Bar' ($61 CND):
The most neutral of Dior's new 5 Couleurs palettes, '056 Bar' combines rich smoky greys and taupes, a deep matte black and two pearly highlight shades for a variety of, both, more subtle daytime looks, and more dramatic nighttime looks. Below is a closer look at each of the five shadows in the '056 Bar' palette:
1) A deep smoky grey with blue undertones and finely milled iridescent shimmer, this beautifully pigmented shadow is incredibly soft and creamy, applying and blending beautifully onto lids.
2) An icy, slightly frosted white with iridescent gold, green and red shimmer, this nicely pigmented shade works beautifully as an inner corner highlight (personally this shade is a little too frosty for a brow bone highlight).
3) A shimmering taupe with strong purple undertones and a slight iridescent sheen, this super creamy, extremely well pigmented shadow is, by far, my favourite from the new '056 Bar' palette.
4) An extremely light, frosted pink with iridescent shimmer, this shade, while sheer, works beautifully as a brow bone highlight.
5) A deep smoky, matte black this incredibly well pigmented shade works nicely as both an eyeliner and crease colour, creating a more sultry, dramatic look.
Dior Vernis in '902 Bar' ($26 CND):
A deep black cream with a beautiful high-shine finish, Dior's '902 Bar' nail polish applies beautifully and opaquely in just one to two coats. Like all of Dior's line of nail polishes, Bar has a uniquely tapered brush, which allows for easy application.
Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in '317 Bar' ($36 CND):
A nude beige with strong grey undertones and iridescent silver shimmer, '317 Bar' is one of the most unique lipsticks I have ever tried. While extremely pale, this shade looks surprisingly nice on my lips (I usually can't pull off nude lipsticks), leaving them with a beautiful glossy finish. While Dior's Rouge Dior lipsticks are said to be moisturizing, I personally find this shade to be a little on the dry side and would, therefore, recommend using a lip balm before application.

"Like a promise of happiness, youth and flushed cheeks, Dior has created an autumnal pink. A touch of 'tutu' pink on the lips. The same on your nails. A smoky eye in pale, pearly, grey drawn on with a brush. An evanescent halo of colour applied with the fingertips, or a futuristic line drawn on with a brush. Or, as a dramatic colour block-pink has never been so bold."
Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in '846 Rose Tutu' ($61 CND):
A unique take on fall, Dior's new '846 Rose Tutu' palette combines beautiful shimmering pastel pinks, peaches and purples for a soft, very feminine daytime look (personally I don't think the palette has enough smoky colours for a true nighttime look). Below is a closer look at each of the five shades in the new 'Rose Tutu' palette:
1) A light, slightly frosted peach with finely milled iridescent shimmer, this beautiful shade, while sheer, gives eyes a wide-eyed effect when worn on the lid or inner corner.
2) A light, frosted lilac, this super creamy, beautifully pigmented shade makes for a nice all-over-lid colour.
3) A deep rose pink with large chunks of gold glitter, this shade, while pigmented, creates a lot of fall out, making it my least favourite colour in the '846 Rose Tutu' palette.
4) A light baby pink with an iridescent purple sheen, this super creamy, beautifully pigmented shadow is by far my favourite from the '846 Rose Tutu' palette and works nicely as both an all-over-lid and highlight colour.
5) A frosted lavender with a gorgeous iridescent sheen, this nicely pigmented shade works in both the crease and along the lower lash line, making for a slightly more dramatic look.
Dior Vernis in '254 Rose Tutu' ($26 CND):
A gorgeous coral pink with peach undertones, this insanely well pigmented nail polish applies evenly and opaquely in just one to two coats. Like all of Dior's polishes, '254 Rose Tutu' has a uniquely tapered brush that allows for easy application.
Dior Rouge Dior in '354 Rose Tutu' ($36 CND):
A gorgeous coral pink with slight peach undertones, this extremely moisturizing lipstick applies beautifully for an opaque, glossy finish. While these lipsticks claim to be long wearing, I personally find them to have an average wear time, which for me, is about 3 hours (everything seems to slip off of my lips). While this colour is part of Dior's Fall collection, it makes for a beautiful Summer lip.

"A cloud of pastel blue. A line of turquoise. A block of mother-of-pearl and a glint of steel. A deep, midnight blue. The 5 Couleurs palette in 'Carré Bleu' defines the quintessentially Dior allure. Both sophisticated and casual, it styles the eye in the colours from the latest shows. Rouge Dior in 'Carré d'Or'. and Dior Vernis in 'Carré Bleu' are the showiest accessories"
Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in '276 Carré Bleu' ($61 CND):
Inspired by the Fall 2014 catwalks, Dior's new '276 Carré Bleu' eyeshadow palette combines icy blues, a frosted white, and a smoky grey and navy for a new sultry take on colour (while I am not usually a fan of blue eyeshadow, I really like this palette). Below is a closer look at each of the shades in the '276 Carré Bleu' palette:
1) A light pastel blue with a slight sheen (this comes off as more of a matte when swatched), this nicely pigmented colour makes for a unique inner corner and lower waterline highlight.
2) A smooth, frosted white, this nicely pigmented shade has little to no shimmer, making it the perfect brow bone highlight.
3) A smoky blue-grey with a slight iridescent sheen, this beautifully pigmented shade is my favourite from the new '276 Carré Bleu' palette, making for a stunning smoky eye look.
4) A stunning jewel-toned turquoise, this extremely well pigmented shade looks great worn along the lash line for a pop of colour with a more neutral eye look.
5) A deep, smoky navy with a slight iridescent sheen (this comes off as more of a matte when swatched), this shade is, unfortunately, a huge let down as it is quite dry, not very well pigmented and difficult to work with.
Dior Vernis in '796 Carré Bleu' ($26 CND):
A deep, rich navy cream, this extremely well pigmented nail polish applies evenly and opaquely in just one to two coats (one coat is more than enough but, out of habit, I always apply two). Like all of Dior's polishes, '796 Carré Bleu' has a uniquely tapered brush with allows for easy application.
Dior Rouge Dior in '135 Carré d'Or' ($36 CND):
A super light frosted peach packed with golden shimmer, '135 Carré d'Or' is not a shade I would personally recommend as it is very drying and gives lips a strange, frosted, metallic look which draws attention to fine lines on the lips.
