Dior invites us to ponder over the colour red for their Fall makeup collection, featuring different tones of a deep red that allows for us to express our reflections, or, according to Peter Philips, “show this palette of emotions based on red”, whether it’s joy, sensuality, suggestiveness, passion or power. Indeed, red is interpreted in many ways by the atelier’s Creative and Image Director, as he gives us more of the alluring shade across eyeshadow palettes, nail polishes, and the iconic Rouge Dior lipsticks.
Of these, we’re most impressed by the 5 Couleurs Couture palettes, seasonal staples surely, though these arrive with a typographic motif where the word ‘DIOR’ is boldly mirrored on the creamy powder texture of the eyeshadows. The typical Fall colours of red, orange and copper are given a fresh twist despite their richer hues, across two shades.
‘Mirror Mirror’ builds around a pearlescent bronze with golden yellow, matte brown, and an interesting golden khaki; whereas ‘Reflexion’ sees burgundy red in the centre, surrounded by satin beige, orange-bronze, rosewood and a golden brown. Then, match the look with the Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara in a brick red shade that give your eyes more dimension and intrigue.
Even more red is seen on the Rouge Dior lipsticks, in three new shades of a satin-finish Dusty Coral, matte Rosewoodrose, and Redred, a deep red with a sensual velvet finish. Though we love Philips’ take on all these shades — a special shoutout for that more toned-down coral — Rosewoodrose has to be one of the better pairings of muted rose and a warm, woody brown, for ultra-flattering lips.

The new Dior Vernis correspond with the newly-introduced Rouge Dior shades of Rosewoodrose and Redred, giving your nails a matchy-matchy look and a glamorous shine. Unique to the collection is also a limited-edition Crème Abricot strengthening nail care cream, dressed up with the initials of Christian Dior in a brick red case.
