Dior Impression Cuir Fall 2008 Beauty Star Product

You drooled over the promotional images and product shots of Dior’s Impression Cuir collection, slated for Fall 2008. How about some actual product photos? Swatches? Even a bit of a review? Thought you might be interested! I was fortunate enough to be able to try out the Impression Cuir Eye Palette, Earth Tones #673 Quint, Pink Drama #559 Rouge Dior Lip Color, and Delicious Plum #675 Creme de Gloss. But let me preface this review with: DO NOT MISS IMPRESSION CUIR! Make sure you give yourself a chance to at least go to your Dior counter and play and test and swatch some products for this fall line.

Impression Cuir Eye Palette (pictured above) is gorgeous. It is a palette that allures you in with the cool, animal-print texture and its shimmery hues. While it says it is an eye palette, all I want to do is use this on my cheeks (which I probably will do). The colors are gorgeous when swirled together, but you could feasibly use them as three separate colors. I love the way the shades fade subtly into each other. This is one star product that definitely grabbed my attention and kept it. The animal-print texture does go in pretty deep, so you’ll see some of it remain for awhile, though it doesn’t go all the way through (but the color does, which is, ultimately, what matters).
