Rouge Dior Brillant tells a luminous story that began in 1981 when the house at 30 avenue Montaigne launched its first gloss, christened Rouge Brillant. It has now been reinvented in a liquid balm that becomes one with the lips, a real feat of radiance and finesse.
At the heart of its unique formula lie three lipcare oils with a high refractive power, which - paired with a innovative applicator featuring a "perfect dose" reservoir - smooth and illuminate lips with finesse and precision. An antioxidant vitamin E complex combined with a plumping active ingredient known for reactivating collagen synthesis promise more than a mere gloss: lipcare, Couture colour and perfect shine.
Peter Philips, the Creative and Image director of Dior make-up, has created a range of equally elegant and timeless shades. Among Rouge Dior Brillant's twelve shades, there are four star shades inspired by the House's Couture icons: "999" echoes the numbers of the first lipsticks "9" and "99" created by Christian Dior and takes the form of an iconic and legendary crimson red. "775 Darling", an elegant fuchsia, bears the name of an evening gown of the same hue and reveals the ultra-femininity embodied by the couturier's famous "Chéries". "468 Bonheur", a delicate and joyful pink, corresponds to Christian Dior's wish to make women happier, while "808 Victoire" pays homage to the insolent elegance of Monsieur Dior's favourite muse and model, in a fresh and luminous coral.
These shades have been designed in harmony with the Rouge Dior lipstick colours to create colourful and luminous duos.
Adding the finishing detail to a couture look, Dior Vernis Rouge 999 teams up with Rouge Dior Brillant to set nails alight with a timeless, iconic crimson shine. Peter Philips has now created three new variations in semitone shades. "Corail 899" illuminates hands in a red with coral glints, "Pink 599" coats nails in a delicate peach set off with a subtle pearl shimmer and "Rose 499" reveals a slightly sparkling, deliciously soft pink. And to make the Rouge Dior Brillant experience totally exclusive, the iconic Crème Abricot, famous for its nail-strengthening and repairing formula, has a new limited-edition case: in red, obviousl
