The legendary palette bears the sequin motif inspired by the work of the Haute Couture ateliers. The texture blends into the lids and sculpts the eyes with pearly light and dense ultra-pigmented shadow. A texture that deposits an ultra-pigmented veil with no powdery effect.

Diorific Lips | $38.00 | Limited Edition
Diorific is housed in a gold Dior collector case, the jewel of the collection. A unique formula in rich shades with a luminous, long-lasting matte finish and perfectly shaped and defined lips to create a captivating, sophisticated look. Apply in a swath of dense magnetic colour, or in touches at the center of the lips.
In a limited edition, Diorific reinvents the purest expression of the powdery matte finish for the first time in a fine film that glides on with incredible comfort. An easy-wearing matte whose secret lies in its unique use of an exceptionally soft and velvety micronized silicon powder. The “powdery” silicon smoothes colour with no streaking while striking a subtle balance between hold and comfort. Unlike traditional matte makeup, this formula continuously moisturizes lips without drying them. Finer, sheerer and less opaque, Diorific Matte radiates colour with a subtle velvety finish. From an easy rosewood to the iconic red, along with the flashiest and trendiest corals and pinks, this utterly modern and elegant matte lipstick truly makes a statement and can be worn on any lips.
Dior Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.06 oz.) is a new powder eyeshadow formula for fall that is available in six shades. I’ve only seen them on Dior’s website, and I actually picked up one shade (Gravity) from Selfridge’s as it is out of stock on Dior’s website. Initially, I thought they were a wet/dry formula, so I swatched them dry and then damp. They are designed to have a “lustrous finish” with “unprecedented shine.” Full reviews to come, but here are swatches:
Dior Parisian Sky (506) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition five-pan palette for fall that features a medium brown, warm beige, pale silver, light blue, and brown-burgundy. It’s a so-so palette; workable if you really want to exert the effort, but it’s unlikely to merit paying the price. I think if you use a primer, it is marginally improved but some of the dustiness seemed to eat right through a solid base.
Dior Capital of Light (806) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition five-pan palette for fall. It features a blackened brown, light beige, pink, light brown, and dark plum with varying degrees of shimmer–satin to frost. For a Dior palette, it was better than anticipated, though it isn’t excellent, so I imagine for some the quality at this price point doesn’t make a compelling case. The five shades worked well together, and I can see several looks from this set of shades.
