Dior’s Fall 2010 Look Preview: Dior Smoky

Although the new fashion trend for fall 2010 is camel colored jackets and animal prints, it looks like Dior will go the traditional route – smoky eyes and purple shades. Yes, it’s pretty, but I was hoping for something slightly different, since the new smoky eyes are less intense (with brown shades rather than black and purples), but Dior is still Dior, and for most people, fall is still about purple and grays. Read more…

I LOVE palettes, and I love how companies release holiday palettes early! As much as I love Bobbi Brown’s practical palettes, I love Dior’s even more. For starters, their palettes always come with a beautifully designed Dior pouch each. Read more…

2009 Summer Makeup Highlights

Here in this part of the world, we aren’t having much of a summer yet. With temperatures barely reaching 23 on a good day, we have to wonder whether Toronto will see a raging hot summer this year, something we get to enjoy only 2 months a year (if we are lucky)!

As summer rages on elsewhere, so does makeup. Although recession hits globally, there are still some major summer releases by major brands. Here are some of the highlights of new releases:

Mascara Showdown: Diorshow Black Out v. Lancome Hypnose

There was a time when I didn’t think a US$24.00 mascara is any different from a US$7.00 mascara, but ever since Hypnose, I am a changed woman! And once you have used a great mascara like Hypnose (by Lancome), you can never go back to cheap drug store brands again!

When I ran out of Hypnose, I was curious to try another popular mascara that has generated so much buzz (if not more than Hypnose). Diorshow has a variety of mascaras that are all the rage these days, reaching a monstrous cult status quickly after their launch. So naturally I just have to try at least one!

Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup

I am having a major Dior moment. When Dior hired Monica Bellucci to be its spokesperson, I find myself unable to resist the temptation to buy its products. With a face and body like that, Bellucci could sell anything!

The latest Dior product of interest is Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup SPF15, a mineral fluid foundation that actually improves your skin over time. This new foundation is made with 100% mineralized pigments, meaning no artificial colorants and dyes, and nearly 40% mineralized micro-droplets of water, it gives a light coverage as it evens out skin tone without appearing cakey or mask-like. Read more…

Dior Spring 2009 Collection

Included in this new collection is Lady Dior, a miniature “it” bag that hosts 2 lip colors that can also be used as a facial highlighter or blush. It also has a keychain component (not shown) which can be attached to your purse or keys. This limited edition item is available in 2 colors, #001 Parisienne Chic and #003 French Chic.

The new collection for Spring is quite large and is supposed to create the essential Parisian look of French women. The colors are mostly pinks, beiges and neutrals, very soft yet sophisticated.

On sale since January 16, 2009 in Japan.
