Dior’s lip looks – Autumn 2013

DIABLOTINE LOOK 

Something much more avant-garde and special, the Diablotine is for the girl who wants to stand out and experiment with colour. It’s all four shades of lipsticks – with Diablotine dapped on the center of the bottom lip. This keeps the lips comfortable while still achieving a high shine.

How to:

Prep lips with a lip balm/conditioner to create a perfectly moist palette. On half of the top lip on your right, apply Diablotine lipstick On the left half apply Delice lipstick. On half of the bottom lip on your right – apply Princess lipstick. On the left half– apply Spring Ball lipstick On bottom lip, apply Diablotine lipgloss.

PRINCESS LOOK

The Princess is for those wanting to show off dimension and depth. Using the red shade of pencil on the outer end of the lip while keeping a gradation of colors to pink, then a peachy shade at the centre, makes the lips appear fuller and creates a contrasted effect. A rich application of gloss makes them pop even more.

How to:

Prep lips with a lip balm/conditioner to create a perfectly moist palette. Using a red lip pencil, completely line and fill the lips, leaving the centre of both the top and bottom bare. On top, layer Princess lipstick. For a 3D effect, apply Delice lip gloss to the inner center of top/bottom lip, then press lips together to blend.

DELICE LOOK 

Use two different semi-monochromatic shades for the top and bottom lip. On the top, I used a brighter shade with a softer, muted neutral on the bottom. A rich gloss application ties the look together for a sexy feel.

How to:

Prep lips with a lip balm/conditioner to create a perfectly moist palette. On the top lip, apply Delice lipstick. On the bottom lip, apply Spring Ball lipstick. On the top lip, apply Delice lip-gloss. Finish by applying Spring Ball lip gloss to the bottom lip.

SPRING BALL LOOK 

Treat it similarly to the Princess look, but instead of using red lip pencil, use a pink. The colour in the centre adds both highlight and contrast. Dab a little gloss on the bottom lip only. This makes the gloss very wearable and less textured for added comfort.

How to:

Prep lips with a lip balm/conditioner to create a perfectly moist palette. Using a pink lip pencil, completely line and fill the lips, leaving the centre of both the top and bottom bare. On top, layer Delice lipstick. For a 3D effect, apply Spring Ball lip gloss to the centre of bottom lip.

Fruit Gorilla: the caring lip balm

Cosmetic companies are not usually synonymous with environmental campaigns.

But one brand is working hard to change that, by putting the environment at the heart of its products.

After three years of careful planning, Fruit Gorilla, distributed by agence de parfum, has developed a lip balm that will make you look good and feel good inside and out – thanks to its worthy cause!

As the proud partners of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International (DGFG), the Swedish-based cosmetic company will aid conservation efforts to help protect one of the world’s most beloved creatures:

“Together with the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International we adopt one orphan gorilla for every 1,000 products that we produce,” the company proudly says of its new venture, adding, “We make a small contribution to help the gorillas to a better life.”

The DGFG was founded by the late Dr. Dian Fossey, author of Gorillas in the Mist, more than 30 years ago and is dedicated to her heroic struggle to preserve, protect and study the mountain gorilla – fewer than 800 of which are left in the world.

In collaboration with other government organisations, the fund also helps provide assistance to local African communities through education, health, training and development initiatives.

The best part is, you won’t find any harmful or unusual lab-created ingredients in these products.  Containing 100 per cent natural ingredients, like Shea butter, beeswax, sunflower and jojoba oils – 98 per cent of which are derived from organic farming, all Fruit gorilla lip balms are ECOCERT Greenlife credited and scented with a lovely natural fruit aroma.

Available in six cute flavours, like Raspberry Night Fever, Sex On The Peach, Appily Ever After, and Banana Said Knock You Out, the cute little gorilla tins also boast the ‘I helped Save a Gorilla’ trademark.

Fruit Gorilla lip balms retail for $14.95 and are available for purchase from agence de parfum’s retail arm Libertine Parfumerie as well as at select perfumeries throughout Australia and New Zealand wide.
