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.
($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 Nordstrom.com.
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.
($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!
($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
($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”.
Shades 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.
($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.
