2017 seems to be flying by in a blur of exotic vacations, stylish events and amazing beauty launches and it’s already time to start thinking about fall trends. Believe it or not, September is just around the corner and I’m excited to see what vivacious colors our favorite brands have in store for us this year.
Today I’ll be featuring Dior’s elegant Fall Collection and if these products are any indication of what we can expect next season, autumn is going to be quite fashionable!
The Paradoxical Light 5 Couleurs Eye Shadow Palettes ($72.00 ea) show off the spectacular contrast between deep mattes and radiant shimmer - boasting luxurious textures that glide on beautifully for effortless blending. When I think of gorgeous fall shades, these are exactly the type of pigments that comes to mind – bold blues, sparking highlights and rich browns that look mesmerizing against radiant bronze and gold.
The reformulation of these shadows yields even more color payoff and intensity for buildable coverage and a silky texture that doesn’t crease or fade. The vivid colors are expertly matched to create the most eye-catching looks, whether you prefer something light and fresh for day wear or deep and smoldering for a glamorous night out.
Magnetize contains some of my favorite hues for creating the perfect smokey eye. The sultry navy looks exquisite with the silvery-grays, especially the center shade which is a brilliant combination of icy blues.
Hypnotize features velvety matte brown and lustrous shimmer with tones that flatter all complexions. The gold is sheer and glittery for a subtle wash of sparkle but the other shades offer more saturation with the ability to be intensified and layered.
Swatches left to right: Metalizer Creme Shadows, Magnetize Palette, Hypnotize Palette.
The new Rouge Dior Lipsticks ($36.00) are available in 5 classic fall shades including beige, metallic, wine-red and rosy brown. 781 Enigmatic is my favorite - the deep berry-red looks amazing with the brown and gold in the Hypnotize Palette and the moisturizing satin finish is light, nourishing and comfortable with a pretty sheen. 996 Eccentric reminds me of milk chocolate – it is a fabulous nude to balance the effect of vivid colors. The collection also includes lip liners that pair beautifully with these stylish hues.
The Metalizer Eyes & Lip Crème Shadow ($32.00) is the latest hybrid product from the house of Dior. The quick drying metal-effects pigment leaves a veil of weightless chrome color on the eyelids that lasts up-to 12 hours. I recommend shaking the squeeze tubes as the formula tends to separate and the color can be applied to the eyes or lips with a finger or brush. Since the creams dry down into the skin, make sure you are primed and moisturized before application for smooth results. 528 Platine Fusion is a lustrous champagne with a touch of pale pink and 678 Bronze Tension is deep and shimmery (see swatch photo).
This collection is available at Dior counters nationwide including Sephora and Hudson's Bay
