Dior DiorAddict Crystal Gloss

Dior launched a new gloss for summer, and it actually prompted today’s question about sheer lipgloss. Dior DiorAddict Crystal Gloss ($27.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is described as a “jelly gloss” that is “lightly tinted in vivid summer shades for shiny, radiant lips.” The “vinyl texture” is supposed to deliver volume to lips along with long-lasting hydration. There are four shades, two are translucent (Sweet Peach and Sweet Rose) while two are sparkling (Luminescent Peach and Luminescent Rose).

Dior Smoking Blue (001) Blue Tie Palette

Dior Smoking Blue (001) Blue Tie Palette ($70.00 for 0.19 oz.) is new and limited for fall, and it contains a mix of silver and navy blue eyeshadows along with a pink lipgloss. The compact itself is metal and includes a full-size mirror when you open it. The gloss has a metal lid that you can open, which is nice, because it helps to minimize any cross-contamination of the eyeshadow powder into the gloss.

Dior Fall 2011 Collection: Blue Tie


Dior Fall 2011 Collection: Blue Tie

“Navy blue is the only color which can ever compete with black,” said Christian Dior. Dior’s new Blue Tie Fall Color Collection features shades of deep marine, luminous petrol blue and sky blue tones delicately highlighted by touches of white to create a sophisticated, unexpected version of the smoky eye. Lips create the perfect complement in a range of luminous pinks and rosy beiges with a touch of light-reflecting gloss and nails catch the eye in dark blue and beige. The ultimate effect is a playful mix of masculine and feminine codes, a refreshing, modern take on the nighttime beauty look, inspired by a woman dressed in the tailored elegance of a tuxedo.

Smoking Blue Blue Tie Palette ($70.00) (Limited Edition)

Inspired by Dior’s ultra-glamorous silver cannage clutch, this chic metal palette features all of the smoky makeup essentials in one sleek compact.

Dior Mitzah Collection for Fall 2011


Dior Mitzah Collection for Fall 2011

Introducing the Dior Mitzah Collection, inspired by Mitzah Bricard, the audacious and glamorous muse to Christian Dior.
Born in Paris to an English mother and Austrian father, Mitzah Bricard captured the fascination of Christian Dior at the very beginnings of the house. While she was officially responsible for the Dior hat collection, she played a key role in advising and influencing the couturier on many aspects of the brand, including the creation of the ―New Look.

Known for her love of leopard (she wore a leopard scarf wrapped around her wrist at all times), the color lilac and over-the-top jewelry, it was said that Mitzah could ―turn the ordinary into stylish.

“Ms. Bricard is one of those rare people whose only reason for living is elegance,” Monsieur Dior said of his muse, whose unique extravagance helped inspire many of his designs.

The collection, featuring a limited edition 5-Couleurs Eyeshadow palette stamped in the iconic leopard pattern, two Vernis shades inspired by the same earthy print and a tawny, shimmering brown Diorshow mascara, pays homage to this one-of-a-kind woman.

The Collection

  • Mitzah 5-Couleurs Eyeshadow ($60.00) (Limited Edition)
  • Vernis in Camel / Ebony ($22.00 each) (Limited Edition)
  • Diorshow Mascara in Golden Brown ($24.50) (Limited Edition)

Mitzah Collector Palette ($90.00) (Limited Edition)

Each numbered, limited edition eyeshadowpalette reproduces the legendary ―Jungle‖ panther/ leopard print—now a signature print of the House of Dior—favored by MitzahBricard. Shades of elegantcamel, chocolate brown and beige shadow can be applied separately or combined to create a sumptuous tawny shade.

Dior Rosy Tan (754) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Rosy Tan (754) Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.21 oz.) is the companion quint to Rosy Nude–they read almost day and night to me. They’re similar yet not the same. Rosy Tan is darker and deeper overall, but it also has cooler undertones.
