The past couple of years have been an exciting time for all things fashion and beauty related. Finally, brands are waking up to the fact that we aren't all the same - shocker - and are upping their game to offer products that are as inclusive as they are brilliant. With brands like Rihanna's Fenty Beauty catering to women worldwide no matter their skin tone, Dior has decided to take note and follow suit with a range of foundation that offers 40 shades.

The big reveal happened on May 26th as Dior hosted its Cruise 2019 fashion show in Chantilly, France. The product is being launched as the must-have fashion accessory to perfect that dewy glow associated with the likes of the supermodel elite. According to Teen Vogue, the Backstage line holds the new foundations at its epicenter. The lightweight formula is for face and body, so users can say goodbye to wearing tights all year round and hello to perfectly preened gorgeousness.
The range is being hailed as a first for the upscale brand, boasting its most diverse range yet. From alabaster to mocha, the line includes a variety of undertones to suit everyone. It's also pretty affordable at $40 for a bottle - making it Dior's cheapest foundation yet. If the thought of splashing out $40 on a product that you haven't had the chance to try makes you want to cry a little, don't despair. Industry experts are impressed and believe in the investment. This is a great option for anyone wanting to try a foundation from the brand, as all of the other Dior foundations would set one back more than $50.
The Backstage range doesn't end with foundation, although that's undeniably its crowning glory. The collection also includes brushes, two face palettes, two eyeshadow palettes, a lip palette and two brow palettes in a variety of shades sure to impress. Dior's creative director Peter Philips claims that Backstage was his brain child, when he was inspired to provide customers with an exact shade match and share his expertise with everyone.
You can snap the goodies up when they're launched exclusively at Sephora and Dior on June 15th.
