Dior Diorling Diorific Vernis

Dior Diorling Diorific Vernis ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a sheer, shimmering champagne gold with flecks of copper-red. I’m pretty sure this is a renamed version of Golden Light (also known as Golden Era and or Lumiere or #207), and while it may be called Diorling, the number is #207. China Glaze Jingle Bells has a similar coloring, but it’s opaque and does not have any red shimmer/sparkle. Chanel Diwali is more of an antique gold (less yellow). OCC Cruising is a stronger yellow gold and has a lot more shimmer/glitter. Readers mentioned some great dupe potentials here as well! :)

Dior Grand Bal Collection for Holiday 2012


Dior Grand Bal Collection for Holiday 2012

“Now that cinderella’s fairy godmother no longer exists, the couturier must be the magician,” said Christian Dior. From Monsieur Dior’s extravagant parties in Granville, his childhood home, to the Parisian balls of the Roaring Twenties, the couturier was profoundly fascinated by the transformative qualities of the ball gown and the fantasy of a fabulous fete. Now, Dior debuts a makeup collection inspired by Dior’s love for entertaining: the limited edition Palette Grand Bal, four new shades of Diorific, Dior’s most haute couture lipstick, two shades of Ultra-Gloss, and four new shades of Dior Vernis.

Palette Grand Bal Carnet de Maquillage ($85.00) (Limited Edition)

Inspired by the dance cards held by young women in the 18th-century to help keep track of their dance partners, this essential beauty kit is bound to be a must-have for the modern day party girl. The glamorous gold clutch features a pearl eyeshadow duo of platinum and gold, two shades of gloss, a mirror, and deep black eyeliner for quick touch-ups.

Orange wood cuticle sticks and a nail file round out this travel-friendly kit.

Golden Tattoos ($120.00) (Limited Edition)

From the early years of his career, Christian Dior was fascinated by gold and its mysterious powers. It wasn’t long before gold became a refined signature of the house and Dior’s most magnificent couture outfits were adorned with gold accessories. Now, Camille Miceli, Dior’s creative director of costume jewelry, has created a limited edition set of Golden Tattoos, comprised of 24-karat gold micro particles that melt onto the skin. The set includes seven exclusive designs: two wrist chains, a Dior Dollisimio charm, pearl drop charm with the Christian Dior logo, three rings, and a Line A interlaced bangles.

Grand Bal Lashes ($28.00) (Limited Edition)

Grand Bal Lashes are available in deep black or vibrant gold. Pearl Drops are available with silver pearl drops or soft gold.

Dior Shadow Nail Lacquer / Vernis

Dior Shadow Nail Lacquer ($23.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as an “intense, shimmering purple.” It’s a dark eggplant purple with flecks of coppery red shimmer. Cult Nails Spontaneous is lighter. MAC Festive Finery is duller, slightly lighter, and has a cream finish. Cult Nails Enigmatic is browner. China Glaze Urban-Night has a stronger red undertone. You might be remembering Bobbi Brown Twilight from yesterday, but while both are dark, purple-ish shades, Shadow is much more of a purple-eggplant without all of the brown that Twilight had.
