Dior Summer Mix Collection for Summer 2012
Introducing Summer Mix, a charming new color collection that captures the carefree spirit of summer with four infectiously fun shades of new Dior Vernis Nail Gloss and two shades of Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss.
In 1962, Dior was the very first Couture House to launch its own brand name nail lacquer to match its already iconic lipsticks. A Dior slogan from the period captures the popularity of the new product: “Today, the four shimmering letters of Dior have come to the tips of your ten fingers.” In the 1970’s, Dior became a leading brand in terms of color range by launching forty matching nail and lipstick shades. And now, in 2012, Dior celebrates 50 years of nail lacquers that have since become stand alone fashion accessories. Inspired by a couture spirit, the Dior Vernis collection currently features 25 permanent shades, from the classic Red Royalty #999, the favorite color of Christian Dior, to the trendy Gris Montaigne #707, inspired by the Louis XVI-style chairs of the original Dior reception rooms on Avenue Montaigne. In addition, each Dior color collection features limited edition Vernis shades that instantly become the must-have accessory of the season.

Meet Benefit’s SpyGal — a Marvel Comic Book Action Hero Inspired by the POREfessional
Get ready for thrills, frills & espionage! Marvel Custom Solutions, the custom publishing division of Marvel Entertainment, and Benefit Cosmetics, the San Francisco beauty brand known for its fun instant beauty solutions, have co-created SpyGal, the FIRST EVER beauty-inspired comic book hero.
“The superpowers of our bestselling pore minimizer, the POREfessional, created such an international sensation, we knew it was destined for greatness! Marvel, the world’s top storytellers, helped us bring our action hero SpyGal to life in the first ever beauty-inspired comic book.” – Julie Bell, EVP Global Marketing at Benefit Cosmetics
SpyGal’s pore-zapping persona was modeled after the POREfessional pore minimizing primer. With over 1 million products sold worldwide, the POREfessional is an international sensation. The POREfessional action figure, SpyGal, has her own a pore-zapping ray gun and touch-up pro case. She’s smooth! She’s sexy! She’s your secret weapon against pores!
“Marvel and Benefit both know that humor and intelligence can be a heroes’ greatest strength, especially when faced with life’s modern problems,” said Marvel Custom Solutions Editor Bill Rosemann. “SpyGal dispenses justice, beauty tips and witty life advice with an effortless grace, while also grappling with work and dating worries. Can SpyGal ever find Mr. Right…or must she sacrifice romance to the demands of her job helping powerful women spread their influence around the world? Writer James Asmus and artist Phil Noto reveal all in SpyGal #1!”
Inspired by SpyGal’s covert mission to empower women around the world, Marvel and Benefit assembled a dynamic creative team including fan favorite writer James Asmus (Uncanny X-Men, Captain America) and acclaimed artist Phil Noto (Avengers: The Origin, X-Men Origins) to bring SpyGal to life in her collectors’ item debut comic book. Together they seamlessly blended the trademark humor of Benefit with the iconic action & drama of Marvel storytelling to create a witty, globe-trotting espionage adventure.
“It’s exciting to bring Benefit Cosmetics and Marvel Custom Solutions together for such a historic collaboration,” said John Dokes, Marvel SVP of Integrated Sales and Marketing, Publishing and Digital Media. “SpyGal is a dynamic, nuanced hero for a new generation and combining that with the unparalleled storytelling of Marvel brings fans one of the most unique comics they’ll read all year.”
In addition to pulse-pounding beauty action, readers can use the FREE Marvel AR app to access video content from the glamorous world of makeup using their smartphone or tablet!
This limited edition SpyGal comic is available in May at Benefit counters everywhere. It’s undercover…and over the top!
