Dior Gold Rain (164) & Pink Excess (663) Addict Gloss

Dior Gold Rain (164) Addict Gloss ($29.50 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a sheer, white gold with light-medium gold shimmer and sparkle. It lasts for two and a half hours, though the lightweight, non-sticky, creamy consistency meant it was very comfortable and nicely hydrating during that time. The formula is supposed to be a sheerer, lightweight, hydrating, and high-shine gloss, and Dior delivers–it’s a matter of whether sheer is your thing (or not). MAC Pussywillow (LE, $15.00) is darker. Bobbi Brown Rose (LE, $24.00) is less golden. Guerlain Gold Tchlack (P, $30.00) has a clearer base. Dior Lame Gold (LE, $28.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Dior Holiday 2014 Diorific Vernis Nail Enamels

Dior Golden Shock (001) Diorific Top Coat ($28.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a clear top coat with gold leaf. It’s certainly fun and festive, but it requires fishing and some maneuvering to get the gold flakes to appear just-so on the nails. The cap on the Diorific polishes makes this a little more difficult, but the degree of difficulty will depend on how large your fingers are. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Dior Gold Shock (001) Diorific Illuminating Pressed Powder

Dior Gold Shock (001) Diorific Illuminating Pressed Powder ($80.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a highlighter “infused with golden yellow shimmer.” It’s a yellow gold with gold shimmer and slight sparkle. Becca Champagne Gold (P, $38.00) is very similar, just more shimmery and more gold than yellow, but applied, they’re similar (just Becca is way better). Cle de Peau Gold (12) (P, $55.00) is lighter. Giorgio Armani No. 04 (P, $59.00) is a liquid. Chanel Routes des Indes de Chanel Illuminating Powder (LE, $80.00) is lighter. bareMinerals The Shining Moment (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery. Bobbi Brown Party (LE, $42.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Dior Cuir Cannage (796) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Cuir Cannage (796) Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of darker neutrals with warm undertones that range from light beige to burgundy-brown. I think it’s one of those palettes that performs better in practice as you apply and layer and blend them together than it swatches. It could use more pigmentation across the board (only one shade really nailed pigmentation), but for the most part, the eyeshadows were blendable and fairly easy to apply.

Dior Golden Shock Collection for Holiday 2014

Dior Golden Shock Collection for Holiday 2014
Dior Golden Shock Collection for Holiday 2014

From the inception of the House of Dior, gold has been a signature color of the brand. From Mr. Dior’s first creations, which incorporated highlights of rich gold as luxurious accents, to the modern-yet-timeless looks of Raf Simons, which feature metallic gold elements to balance audacious shades of red, pink, blue and yellow, gold remains a constant theme. Now, the Dior Golden Shock Holiday Color Collection draws inspiration from Dior’s past and present by incorporating pops of color with dazzling gold accents.
