The beauty world takes its inspiration from a variety of sources—including artwork, architecture, history, prints, colors, and entire eras. For its fall 2011 cosmetics collection, Christian Dior has taken inspiration from a single quote by its founder—”Navy blue is the only color which can ever compete with black.”—to create the Blue Tie collection. The line features various shades of blue—from a bright azure blue through to petrol blue and eggshell blue—accented with touches of pink and beige. The collection includes an eyeshadow palette, two shades of blush, four new lip colors, three new nail polishes, waterproof liners, and more. Many of the products are limited edition. Several products from the Blue Tie collection are available now at Nordstrom; other products will be available in August and September at Sephora and Dior.com. Prices range from $22 through to $70.
