Dior Fall 2010 Beauty & Makeup Collection

“Dior women are not shy, they’re modern and daring,” says John Galliano. The Dior fall color collection pays tribute to this idea of unabashed femininity with shades of sensual mauve, deep purple and smoky charcoal and grey tones. The eyes are the focal point of the look: endless and full lashes, mysterious, smoky lids and soft, pink hues for the lips.

Dior 2-Colour Logomania Collector’s Edition in Silver Screen #085 ($38.00)

Embossed with the Dior “Logomania” pattern, this limited edition 2-Colour shade plays with highlighting silver and sparkling black shades to light up the eyes with a dramatic, shimmering effect.

The Summer Season: MAC Neon Orange Lipstick

MAC Neon Orange Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a traffic-stopping opaque neon orange.  The name really says it all — it’s bright, in-your-face, and exactly orange.  It’s unabashedly orange, and you won’t see it apologizing for anything any time soon!  It has such a smooth texture with incredibly rich, opaque color.  The finish is creamy, but it has a little bit of a sheen that lights it up.   It really has an amazing feel, and it is one of MAC’s best lipsticks in terms of quality–even if the color may be a little hard to wear!

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

Chanel Glossimers Lipgloss (Fall 2010)

Chanel Fall 2010 Glossimers

For fall, Chanel released four new Glossimer shades ($27.00 for 0.19 oz.), but they’re oh-so-perfect for summer–so thank goodness they’re available come July! (Some readers are reporting their local counters have the collection in already, too.)

Glossimers have this way of shimmering and glittering that’s subtle but flashy at the same time. I never understood the big deal about them until I wore one and saw my lips in my car mirror. They looked amazing! They were unreal. Now, I can appreciate the nuances of the shimmer to micro-shimmer these glosses contain. Sometimes they’re sheer, sometimes they’re not. The range really varies, though the majority are sheer to semi-sheer. They wear three to four hours and are a rather non-sticky gloss, which makes the length they wear even more impressive.

I’m totally digging the four new shades for fall, even if they feel and look rather summery (or even springy) to me. They do, of course, pair well with bolder eyes and cheeks, which were stars of Chanel’s fall collection!

Chanel Rose Temptation Joues Contraste Blush (Fall 2010)

Chanel Rose Temptation Joues Contraste Blush


Chanel Rose Temptation Joues Contraste Blush ($42.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a new and limited edition blush from the brand’s fall collection. Chanel describes it as a “shimmer rosewood,” which sounds like an apt description, but a quick Google search shows the real rosewood looking not much like this blush!

For those who don’t follow Chanel or rarely stop by the counter, let me tell you a little about what makes these blushes so loved. They are finely-milled, silky smooth powders that apply beautifully on skin. This is not a blush that will look chalky or powdery–it lays down on skin like it belongs there; the shades, no matter their hue, always look natural on cheeks. (Taken from an earlier review.)

Rose Temptation is a softened rose-gold with subtle gold flecks and soft sheen. It also has slight red undertones, but they’re not too strong in this shade. I found this to be the softest shade out of the three new shades, but it is the second most wearable (Pink Explosion being the most).
