Dior Fall 2011 Collection: Blue Tie

Dior Fall 2011 Collection: Blue Tie

“Navy blue is the only color which can ever compete with black,” said Christian Dior. Dior’s new Blue Tie Fall Color Collection features shades of deep marine, luminous petrol blue and sky blue tones delicately highlighted by touches of white to create a sophisticated, unexpected version of the smoky eye. Lips create the perfect complement in a range of luminous pinks and rosy beiges with a touch of light-reflecting gloss and nails catch the eye in dark blue and beige. The ultimate effect is a playful mix of masculine and feminine codes, a refreshing, modern take on the nighttime beauty look, inspired by a woman dressed in the tailored elegance of a tuxedo.

Smoking Blue Blue Tie Palette ($70.00) (Limited Edition)

Inspired by Dior’s ultra-glamorous silver cannage clutch, this chic metal palette features all of the smoky makeup essentials in one sleek compact. Inside features four shades of Dior Eyeshadow to create a smoky navy eye and one shade of nude lip gloss. An inside mirror and two double-tip applicators make for a quick, seamless application.

Simply peel away each patch and apply along the lashline for an instant winged, liquid eyeliner look. Featuring two simple black styles, a Swarovski crystal effect liner and a silver crystal effect liner.

Brow Shaping Stencils ($40.00) (Permanent) (Sephora Exclusive)

Eyebrows take center stage this fall with Dior’s Brow Lift Expert Stencil Kit, which features six brow stencils and a Dior brow pencil to help create the perfect brow. Start by choosing one of the six different shapes—ranging from arched to natural—place the stencil over the brow and use the stencil as a guide to fill in with the pencil as needed.

Not crazy about this at all. There doesn’t seem to be much of a story or theme here, and it doesn’t really tie together. There photography isn’t too exciting either- they should take a hint from MAC! I’m kind of disappointed because I was really looking forward to Dior’s next collection. 🙁 Maybe it will grow on me…?

I totally agree with you! I always look forward seeing what Dior comes up with but this is just boring. The colors are boring and don’t get me started on how tacky blue eyeshadows can look!

Me too! They have a cheapie version of the same idea around Halloween in drugstores, but they never fit right. I’d be intrugued to see a high-end take on this!

As a loyal Dior mu fan I’m underwhelmed. There is a part of me that misses the days of early 00’s and all the crazy stuff. Bring back the green sparkly lipgloss. Does anyone remember hair mascara from the 90’s? Bright lime green eyeshadow shade in a quint? Lipgloss packaged in a military dog tag? Okay, those don’t scream class & sophistication but it was playful & fun. And now I’m getting an “eyeliner patch” to amuse myself? I dunno…

(P.S. I’d also gladly take pre-reformulated Addict Shine in 222. It was perfection.)

I never really get into Dior collections for some reason. This one doesn’t really do it for me either, but…eyeliner patches? It sounds gimmicky but I still want to see how they work, just for fun!


So excited to see more of the nail colors. Dior’s brush is amazing and their formula has always worked for me. Can’t wait to pick up a nice blue from this collection!

Those eyeliner patches sound stupid, and way too gimmicky for something that’s coming from Dior. I’m passing on this, I don’t even like the nail colors.

I probably won’t be buying anything from this actual collection, but I do appreciate the ad. As someone with blue eyes and fair skin, it gives me hope to be able to wear blue(ish) eyeshadow. Would love to take some colors I already have (or ones I don’t, but are cheaper) and re-create this look for a night out.
