A brand that makes my heart skip a beat? Dior!
There’s just something about luxury beauty brands that are so.. for a lack of a better word, luxurious.
Dior Beauty has come out with a fabulous holiday collection this season which definitely embraces the spirit of the season. There’s tons of glitter and holiday shades, that even picking up one item will have you in the holiday mood.
With Dior Beauty comes Dior prices though and truthfully, this line ain’t cheap. If you really want to gift the gift of Dior this season though, then here are some of my picks.
Diorific Vernis nail lacquer
The easiest way to sport Dior is on the nails!
For the holidays, the brand has come out with three limited-edition holiday shades in festive colours in their Diorific Vernis nail lacquer line. These nail polishes come in a round bottle with a gold top that is so luxurious to apply.
Now at C$34 a pop, these nail polishes are definitely not cheap, and truthfully, will you notice a difference between these and Sally Hansen or OPI? Probably not. The formula though does have a “gel coat” resin in it which is combined with a technopolymer to transform each coat of the polish into a film that is smooth and shiny. It also contains a non-mineral silicon in it, so it strengthens the nail surface.
I received two of the three shades, Charm (a soft pink) and Passion (a holiday red). I like both colours and definitely feel like Passion is a really pretty festive shade (especially with some glitter over top). Truthfully, the shades aren’t anything really that special or different from anything else I have in my collection, but hey, it’s Dior. You’re paying for the prestige, and if you can afford it, the bottle does look nice displayed on your dresser.
Dior DiorShow Liquid Mono Limited-Edition Cream Eyeshadow
If you can’t gift a Dior bag this season, then their DiorShow Liquid Mono eyeshadows (C$36) are the next best thing.
I actually already chatted about these last week, but I had to mention them again as I really love the formula.
These liquid eyeshadows, available in four sparkly shades, looks like a lipgloss at first glance, but they are actually eyeshadows that can double as liners that gives you impeccable shine and long-lasting wear.
Open up the packaging to reveal a wand that allows you to glide on the colour, or use a brush to apply it over the lids or as an eyeliner. The texture is very light and feels weightless on the lids.
I received a couple colours from the line, Fireworks, a pink sparkle, and Silver Flakes, a bright silver. These were really impressive and I was very surprised when a lot of people asked me what eyeshadow I was wearing. These are very lightweight in texture and give you just enough sparkle to make it noticeable.
Both of these products retail for under C$40, so they’re not going to break the bank. If I had to choose one item though, I would definitely go with the DiorShow Liquid Mono Limited-Edition Cream Eyeshadow in Fireworks since it’s so pretty on the eyes and can be worn with so many different makeup looks.
Dior Beauty also has a ton of other items in their holiday collection this season, including palettes and lipsticks. Check out your Dior counter or visit their site online to see the whole collection.
