Dior Cosmopolite Collection for Fall 2015

Dior Cosmopolite Collection
Dior Cosmopolite Collection

Manifold and universal, the Dior woman is above all free. Her makeup is a reflection of her wants, her needs and her many facets. For this very woman, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, has created his first collection of colors. Like a manifesto of freedom for each and every woman, the collection promises plural forms of beauty, a “Cosmopolite” beauty.

Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00)

The eyes light up with mirror-shine color, highlighted by the innovative Dior Addict Fluid Shadow texture and its magnetic shimmer. Created by Peter Philips, the new-generation eyeshadow gives eyelids the unprecedented, lacquer-like shine of a continuous film of light. A major innovation from Dior research, this lightweight fluid with flawless hold revolutionizes makeup application: applied in a solid block of color over the entire eyelid or along the upper lashes like an eyeliner, Dior Addict Fluid Shadow comes in six precious, metallic shades that light up the eyes with a quick stroke of the brush.

  • Magnetic
  • Eclipse
  • Cosmic
  • Phenix
  • Univers
  • Nova
  • Aurora

DiorBlush Cheek Stick ($34.00)

A practical, essential, take-anywhere blush… It’s every woman’s dream, and Dior made it come true. To meet the needs of their fast-paced lifestyle, Dior created Diorblush Cheek Stick, a jumbo-size blush that delivers custom results. Sculpt the face with bold strokes or caress the cheeks with a light veil – the new Dior blush can do it all, depending on your desire. Ultra-easy, intuitive application with the fingertips and three shades to choose from – coral, rosewood or fresh pink – for a face with an incomparable healthy glow.

5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Couture Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00) (Limited Edition)

Under the expert hands of Peter Philips, the iconic 5 Couleurs palette gets a new look for fall as the four letters of DIOR dance across its harmony of brand new colors. The two new limited-edition creations flatter all eyes, whether dark or light, and all types of beauty. Because the Dior woman has many facets – couture or natural, sophisticated or discreet – she can choose between a harmony of brown, beige and gold contrasted with denim blue; or an accord of silver, mauve and burgundy set against a moss green. Whether she opts for a bold or more delicate look with the 5 Couleurs shadows, her eyes are always defined with the Sourcils Poudre pencil. A Dior makeup essential since 1991, it is now decked out in a new cloak of midnight blue. In addition to the four existing shades, two new ash shades are now available for blonde or light brown tones. Inspired by the professional tools of Dior makeup artists, the pencil combines the definition of a wax and the finish of a powder. Its brush tip makes it the accessory no woman can do without for a flawless, harmonious brow line.

Dior Ambre Nuit (746) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Ambre Nuit (746) Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of warm-toned neutrals that ranges from frosted peach to deepened bronzy brown. The colors are dupable, and you can certainly find better-performing neutral palettes on the market given how many are available, but at least this did better than most of Dior’s palettes have in the last couple of years. The trouble showed up primarily during application, as the drier texture proved more difficult to work with for blending and getting color to adhere evenly and smoothly to bare skin. This one should work well enough over a primer if you typically wear one.

Dior Contraste Horizon (556) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Contraste Horizon (556) Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a brighter, more colorful set of shades for summer. You know me, despite having a fairly consistent negative experience with Dior’s palettes these days, that bluish-teal color drew me in, and shortly after receiving my order, I deeply regretted purchasing. The texture of the eyeshadows is drier overall, and they just performed poorly as far as wear and application went without some sort of helper (base or primer).

Dior Tropiques, Ciel Rose, Plaisir Dior Addict Fluid Sticks

Dior Tropiques (379) Dior Addict Fluid Stick ($35.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a brightened, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had mostly opaque coverage that pulled slightly into lip lines; the high-shine finish made it harder to notice from a normal viewing distance. On me, the color lasted for five hours and was hydrating while worn. Sephora Collection Pretty in Pink (23) (P, $14.00) is darker, cooler. Maybelline Rebellious Raspberry (110) (LE, $8.99) is darker, brighter. Revlon HD Strawberry Topaz (535) (P, $8.99) is darker, brighter, warmer. Dior Rieuse (373) (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer. Dior Wonderland (575) (P, $35.00) is darker, brighter. Dior Magique (479) (P, $35.00) is lighter. Chanel Sonate (178) (P, $29.50) is less pigmented. MAC Drawn in Chic (LE, $15.00) is warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty Paint It (202) (P, $28.00) is warmer. MAC Star Quality (LE, $20.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dior Rouge Brilliant Lipgloss

Dior Rouge Brilliant Lipgloss ($35.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) released a few months ago as a new formula from the brand. The new formula is supposed to be a “long-wearing, couture lip balm gloss” that is supposed to “dispense just the right amount” with its “pen-like applicator” that is hydrating. As far as color coverage is concerned, there is a lot of marketing speak, and best I can surmise is… your mileage may vary, since it is the “perfect dose” and “the right touch of vibrant color.” I bought six shades to test out, and across all six, color coverage is semi-opaque, so there’s some translucency but noticeable color on the lips, but the stronger your natural lip color is, the more it may impact how the color translates on your lips. The gloss has a smooth, lightly thickened gel-like consistency that feels plush and covers fairly evenly on average; it doesn’t feel heavy, but it has that jelly-like consistency of balm. They’re moderately hydrating–less than the best balm, better than the average gloss–with a high-shine finish. They’re non-sticky, which makes them comfortable to wear and easier to smooth out. The formula is noticeably rose-scented, though not as intense as the Fluid Addicts, so I don’t normally notice it as a taste, just a scent. The lasting power is three to five hours, which is good for a gloss as non-sticky as this. All six of the shades I tried had a very faint pearl to them, which is definitely there, but it’s hard to really see the impact of the pearl on the lips from a normal viewing distance.
