The Dior Golden Winter Holiday Color Collection is inspired by Versailles at the heart of winter. The collection is based around shades of pink and gold, which have been among the most emblematic codes of the House of Dior since the first couture collection in 1947. Today, the tradition continues with Raf Simons, whose current creations feature gorgeous combinations of pink and gold.

Dior recently released the latest Rouge Dior Lipstick range, which is supposed to have “luxurious, full-coverage lip color” with a “satiny finish.” It’s a lightweight, lightly creamy, moderately hydrating, and easy to apply formula. Trafalgar was richly pigmented and almost had full coverage in a single stroke. It applied smoothly, evenly, and didn’t bleed or feather outside my natural lip lines. It lasted well for six hours, and it left behind a warm, reddish stain that lingered for another hour or so.

September is the beginning of all things autumn for me. The temperatures have already started to cool down by me, though it’s still warm overall, the nights are cooling down. I’ve always been partial to September, as I am a September baby Usually, the real start of fall begins with my first sip of Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte, but they already brought it back (and it was delicious!). By this point, I’ve typically reviewed several fall color collections, which is perfect timing so I can include some of those favorites while they can still be purchased. This month’s Tempting 10 features more recently released shades from the fall collections, but I still wanted to highlight a few favorites that you can find all year-long.
Dior Millenium — a shimmering warm-toned, pewter in a cream formula that can be used as a sheer wash or built up for more intensity.
Tom Ford Love Lust– it’s a warmer, more muted coral, so it’s a lovely transition shade from summer to fall
Guerlain Madame Batifole — creamy, hydrating, incredibly pigmented, and long-wearing makes this a rich, fuchsia-shimmered berry-red a true joy to wear.
Tom Ford She-Wolf — it’s pricey, but not only is it a palette I could easily see myself reaching for time and time again, it was a palette that readers gravitated towards. It was easily one of the most viewed products from all fall color collections!
Benefit Rockateur — a rose gold blush is subtle, wears well, and reminds me of the colors of autumn; rusty in a way, but still warm and inviting.
Too Faced Pretty Rebel Palette — ten glorious shades of bold, bright, eye-catching shadows with buttery, soft, and smooth textures and excellent color payoff.
I hope you’ll consider sharing your must-haves for September in the comments! Here’s a quickie list to get you started…
