Gold Essence (212)

Dior Gold Essence (212) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss (2016) ($30.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and fine, golden pearl. It had semi-sheer color coverage where the gloss lightened and warmed-up my natural lip color while also adding a moderate amount of shimmer and finer pearl. It had a noticeable sheen and a very creamy, smooth consistency. The gloss lasted for three hours, was hydrating, but prone to color gathering in my lip lines over time. There was a slight, floral scent but no discernible taste.

Dior Precious Rocks (001) Golden Glow Loose Powder ($59.00 for 0.51 oz.) is a pale, buttery yellow powder with flecks of gold sparkle. The powder is supposed to be “the finishing touch” and have a “subtle, golden shimmer” and a “delicate glow.” The brand says that it can be applied to “the cheekbones, the chin, and the nose” or even “to your decollete and shoulders.”

The powder was very finely-milled and smooth, and it did add a slight warmth to my overall skin tone (made me appear slightly warmer, slightly yellower) but was fairly translucent. It seemed to contain finer sparkle and then larger sparkles, which I could see just sitting on the skin. It had a very subtle highlighting effect wherever I put it, but the visible sparkles kept it from being a truly subtle highlighter in my eyes. Some may love the sparkly effects while others loathe the idea of visible glitter sitting on the skin. The highlighter seemed to last around eight hours but had migrating sparkle throughout the day.

I’m incredibly surprised that the Dior holiday collection has sold through so quickly online, so if there are any pieces you’ve had an eye on, in-stores/at counters might be your best bet.

Emerald (347)

Dior Emerald (347) High Fidelity Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition green-hued set of shades for the holidays. For a Dior palette, it was surprisingly good, but there were two under-performing shades (center and bottom right). I think the sheerness of the deepest may make it easier to work with it gradually for some, so that might not be a deal-breaker for anyone who prefers their deeper shades to have buildable coverage. The center shade was far stiffer than it should have been, though.

Dior Ruby (857) High Fidelity Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday palette featuring shades of pink and plum. The palette seems to be fairly sold through online, but perhaps it’ll pop back up online and may still be available in stores. It was a nice set of shades that we’ve certainly seen quite a bit of this past year, but I’ll always welcome yet another well-done variation.

Precious Rocks (864)

Dior Precious Rocks (864) DiorBlush Vibrant Color Powder Blush ($45.00 for oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There was fine gold sparkle on top of the powder, but it did not go all the way through. The texture was dry with a very chalky base that was difficult to pick up evenly with a brush, blend out. The coverage was sheer, though the brand described it as a “sheer peach.” The issue I had with this was just how poorly it applied–it was patchy and uneven, as the powder seemed to grab onto the skin and not want to move. It lasted for a mere four hours on me before fading noticeably.

Precious Rocks (001)

Dior Precious Rocks (001) Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer ($57.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a soft, peachy beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, but the consistency was incredibly smooth, velvety, and finely-milled, so it was easy to sheer out if desired. The powder sat well on the skin and yielded a smooth, luminous sheen–somewhere between subtle and moderate in terms of reflectiveness. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly.
