Dior New Look 2012 Makeup Collection

In 1947 Christian Dior's first collection was considered astonishing and shocking, completely overturning the styles of the era with its floral-inspired shapes, rich colours and full skirts - thus the moniker "New Look".
Inspiration from the New Look was drawn for a new mascara - Diorshow New Look - with a revolutionary formula that creates multi-dimensional volume for a dramatic, lash-multiplying effect.
Diorshow New Look Mascara - $35 - multiplies volume lash by lash with a new intelligent nano-brush made of supple rubber and resistant plastic allowing for easy application and ultimate precision.The lower part of the brush is made up of four reservoirs and rows of separating spikes which load lashes from the root while allowing for maximum extension. While the upper part of the brush has a "lash catcher" micro-head which slips into the slightest gap to catch every lash, even the very shortest.

As well it has Lash Multiplier serum formula which instantly thickens and extends lashes with a polymer that adds stretch and volume enhancing properties to help coat each lash for extreme thickness, stretch and curl. And for long term benefits, the formula is also enriched with fortifying royal jelly extract which acts at all stages of the lash life cycle to reinforce lashes over time for a thicker fringe. For added drama is the intense colour effect obtained from an exclusive 3D effect, Dior Black Glass pigment which is coated with light-reflecting particles for a magnifying effect that increases the depth and shine of the colour.

The formula dries quickly and won't smudge.

Available in 090 Black, 264 Blue, 694 Brown
