There are some brands that just scream luxury, and Dior is no exception.
I’ll be honest, I haven’t really dabbled much into what Dior has in terms of their makeup collection. I’ve tried a couple lipsticks, but that’s it. I’ve always wanted to check out their eyeshadows since they are so beautiful (especially since the compact comes housed in a velour case), so when I received some items from their limited-edition Midnight Wish holiday collection, I was very excited to try everything out.
The collection is comprised of eyeshadow palettes, blushes, lipsticks, and nail lacquers. I received one of the eyeshadow palettes, a blush (which is more of a highlighter), and a lipstick (which I had already previously reviewed).
The 5 Couleurs Midnight Wish Limited Edition eyeshadow palette (C$73) comes in two different shades, bronze and silver. I received the bronze version, Lucky Star, which has five complementary eyeshadow shades.
There’s a gold, a silver, a copper, a purple, and a brown in this palette, which allows you to create the perfect everyday eye look, as well as something a little more dramatic for nighttime. The formulation on these are smooth and very blendable. When I created the look shown in the photos below I was very impressed with the texture of the shadows. For $73, I would expect that to reflect highly on the fact that it’s Dior, but the quality is there as well.
For the cheeks, add a little shimmer with the Rouge Blush Midnight Wish (C$55), which Dior calls a blush, but is totally a highlighter. This highlight really is stunning to look at and finishes off any holiday look you put together this season. It’s not the most blinding highlight I’ve used, but it’s definitely something extra special to carry around in your makeup case. The shade is a coppery gold, which allows you to wear this product on a variety of different skin tones. It’s also quite pricey at $55, but makes a wonderful gift for someone who loves Dior.
For the lips, there’s nothing more “holidays” than a bright red. The Diorific Lipstick in Desirable (C$46) comes housed in the most elegant gold case that opens up to an opaque matte lipstick. There are other shades in this line as well, but Desirable is the most festive colour for this time of the year. I also want to note that the lipstick does offer a long wear, which is impressive. Although I’m not the biggest fan of reds, I actually really love how this one applies, looks, and wears. I recommend checking it out this season.
I get to try out so many different brands and items this time of the year, but don’t often get my hands on luxury beauty. Thee is something so special and luxurious about Dior Beauty, so even though it might be “just a highlighter”, it’s definitely more than that. It’s a work of art, it’s a little bit of luxury, and although it will add a little sparkle to your face, it will also add a little sparkle to you mood every time you pull it out.
Have you tried anything from Dior Beauty?
