Christian Dior Fall 2010 Collection – Smoky Look

We all know how much I love Dior.. hmm!? So the Dior Fall 2010 collection is all about smoky eyes, purple shades, mystery & seduction. Since purple IS my favorite color, I’m super-stoked on the fall collections coming out. Nearly all skin tones can wear purple shades, so don’t be afraid to experiment with fall’s newest trend color.

Christian Dior 2010 Fall LookNew Mascara – DiorShow Black Out

DiorShow Black Out Mascara
($24) Dior reinvents mascara by incorporating professional makeup artists’ techniques into one ingenious product. Courtesy of Black Fix Complex – a unique blend of deeply saturated pigments – this creamy formula is the first to reproduce the intensity of kohl. Thickening powder adds staying power, while an Arabic gum extract provides a perfect charcoal-like finish and adds to its incredible resistance. I was never a big fan of DiorShow mascara, mainly because the brush was too big. If you love DiorShow or have tried Black Out and want to tell us, leave a comment below! This mascara is getting 5 star rave reviews on

DiorShow Lash Maximizer

DiorShow Lash Maximizer
This is a mascara base, no color, but a lash treatment that helps bring out the full effect of your favorite mascara. This is the first Dior serum base product with a full lash-boosting effect that works both instantly and day after day. This product is said to thicken and lengthen the lashes over time. This lightweight serum has been reviewed by users and is said to really help strengthen the lashes, resulting in less lashes falling out when removing makeup. Check out this review with before and after photos.

2 Couleurs Couture Edition Eyeshadow Duo – Smoky Mania

Dior Eyeshadow Duo($38) Embossed with the Dior Logomania pattern, this limited-edition two-color eyeshadow includes silver and sparkling black shades to light up the eyes with a dramatic, shimmering effect. Limited Edition, so get one asap!

Dior 5-Colour Designer Eye Palette – Pink Design #808

Dior Designer Eye Palette
($58) This pretty palette includes a creamy blendable base color, one versatile iridescent eyeshadow, one satiny contouring shade, one shimmering highlighter and one sultry, intensely matte powder eyeliner, plus two double-ended applicators and a cheat sheet of pro-technique design tips from Dior’s top makeup artists.

Dior 5-Colour Designer Eye Palette – Misty Mauve

Dior Misty Mauve Eyeshadow Palette ($58) This eyeshadow palette features colors which could be described as a sheer, icy lilac, a satin grayish purple, a deep blackish purple, a frosty off-white highlighter shade and a soft pink-mauve shimmer. As far as the reviews I’ve seen, some are not impressed with the pigmentation of this and expected more “pop”.

Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss: Plumping Volume

Dior Addict Ultra GlossShades Mauve Sur Mesu & Tailored Mauve, both with a high-gloss shine that features glass microbeads coated in a crystalline elixir to give you luxurious couture lips. Yup, this is a plumping gloss, but I think that the shine and color give the illusion of plumped lips, and it might not be one of those “stinging” formulas that inflate your lips for 5 minutes.

Rouge Dior Serum De Rouge: Luminous Color Lip Treatment

Dior Serum De Rouge($32) This isn’t just a plain old lipstick, this is a lip treatment with 10 times more skincare ingredients than a classic Dior lipstick. Serum De Rouge boasts 40% more moisturized lips and 25% more smoother lips that are plumped day after day. The shade Ruby Serum is this Fall’s featured shade.

Dior Addict Lipcolor

Dior Addict Lipcolor($26) This lightweight formula packs a punch of color and features a smooth texture of true color. This Fall’s featured shades are Spectacular Mauve and Technicolor Red (shown left).

  1. Yvonne thanks for your input on the product. I am so glad you posted this about the lash maximizer stuff because I really wanted to try it out. I’ve heard about so many different products that claim to thicken the lashes and lengthen them over time and I wondered what actually worked. Thanks again for posting

  2. Cant say I really love Dior. Ive used Blackout and Disorshow but neither really do anything for me. I tend to always go back to False lashes by prescriptives. I just bought the Serum de Rouge and I like that quite a bit. I also have hte lash maximizer which works well as a primer but as for the other claims its a crock. Only bimataprost (in latisse) and other prostaglandin analogues (identical ones at that) can do anything noticeablfor your lashes.
