I have a few pieces from the Dior Holiday 2017 Collection to share with you and Dior is taking a vampy spin with some of their holiday lip offerings.
There are two new formulas for lips. The Dior Diorific Khôl Powder Lipstick ($38 US/$ CAD) is a really interesting product. Who would have ever thought of a Khôl for lips? This lipstick bullet has the ultra precise pointed tip you would expect from a khôl with a powder matte finish. The formula actually feels quite creamy thanks to the wax and plant-based butter it includes. It gives an ultra matte, intense finish that is long wearing and not near as drying as I’d anticipated. In fact it was very comfortable. The pointed shape means that even with a shade as dark as 991 Bold Amethyst you can apply it precisely without a liner. Also available in 341 Pure Topaz and 741 Deep Ruby. The packaging is the same holiday Diorific lipstick packaging we’ve come to know and love.
Another new product is the limited edition formula Dior Diorific Matte Fluid Lip & Cheek Velvet Colour ($38 US/$ CAD). This unique product is a powdery cream for lips and cheeks that give a velvety finish. I have the shade 008 Intensity, which I could never wear on my cheeks, but it is lovely on the lips. The formula packs a lot of pigment. I found it a little uneven in photos but it looked good in person. I was surprised by how nicely it blended out on my skin so I could see this shade working quite well on someone with a deeper skin tone. The other shades available are Charm, Glory, and Desire. I can see the nude pink Charm and coral Desire being really stunning!
A must have every holiday season are the ornament shaped Dior Diorific Vernis Nail Lacquer ($28 US/$ CAD). This season features a shimmering Ruby, bold Grenat cream, shimmering Emerald, and a stunning deep Amethyst. Shown are Grenat and Emerald.
The collection also includes a gorgeous Precious Rocks highlighter and eyeshadow palette and more.
What are you lusting after this holiday season?
