To Christian Dior, there had always been something alluring about the colour pink – to him, the colour of happiness and femininity. To capture the delicate and soft spirit of the colour, Dior have released the Cherie Bow Spring 2013 Collection, to leave you pretty in pink.
The Cherie Bow campaign features the stunning and ultra-feminine Daria Strokous as the face as photographed by Steven Meisel that captures the sweet innocence and softness of the collection perfectly.
The Star Palette (RRP $120) is the heart and soul of this collection. Encased in an adorable bow clasp compact, the palette contains a trio of sweet and sugary shades and has us swooning in pastel delight. The palettes are available in two harmonies – Rose Poudre – a selection centring on a pretty vintage pinks and greys, and Rose Perle which uses bright and peppy pinks to complement a frosted, shimmering white. Each palette also contains a black eyeliner and pink gloss to round out the fresh and youthful look.
The It-Pen (RRP $50) is inspired by one of the best kept backstage beauty secrets. Many makeup artists apply a cream shadow and then set it with a matching powder to make the vibrant look last longer. The new Twin-Set eye shadow pen blends both products in one easy and portable product. One end of the product contains a soft cream that blends out into a satin or pearly finish. This can be worn alone, or layer over the shiny, complementing powder that creates a mirrored sheen. Available in four shades: Grey Sigh, Fishnet Black, Beige Ribbon, Ballerina Pink.
The name Dior is synonymous with their legendary houndstooth palettes. The Cherie Bow range introduces 3 new palettes. Pink Happiness and Rose Ballerine (RRP $103 each) contain five eye shadows in complementing shades which create a full and enchanting look. The 3 Couleurs Palette in Smoky Rose (RRP $75) holds three soft and pretty pink shades, perfect for adding to any look.
The range also includes two new blushes (RRP $75) in shades of peach and pink to add a bright, girly glow to any complexion. Fans of Dior Addict Lip Glow (RRP $49) will also love the limited edition product in a soft, rosy shade. Using the formula is it famed for, it hydrates and naturally tints the lips.
The Cherie Bow collection also includes two pretty lip products. The soft and lightweight Dior Addict Lipstick (RRP $49) has four new shimmering shades, while Rouge Serum (RRP $50) provides an extra splash of colour with their two brand new shades. The Rouge Serum range includes a playful candy pink, and an ultra-wearable coral shade with shimmering gold undertones.
