I don’t seem to see much hype on the Dior Fall collection this year. I see some Instagram pictures here and there, and reviews are far and few between. That said, I just want to give you guys a quick run down on the things I have. You have already seen the mono eye shadow and nail colour in Obscure that are released in conjunction with this collection, so let’s go through the other products.
It is going to be picture heavy, and that’s the reason I will keep it short and sweet. First up is the eye palette. It is 806 Capital of Lights (RM265) and the detailing is so pretty. The pattern is reminiscent of the structure of the Eiffel Tower and it is so delicate that a swipe from the brush will move the design. I was hesitant to use this palette, but I braced myself for the initial pain, and I was not disappointed by the quality of the shadow either. They are all smooth and pigmented, with no frost or glitter.
Next up is the highlighting powder. This is the Diorskin Nude Air Luminizing Powder (RM248) in 001. Again, intricate in design, but aesthetics wise, I do prefer the previous Spring edition.
I swatched these 2 side by side, and they look pretty much the same. Unless you’re a collector, you’ll probably only need either one of these. Here are the swatches of the powder products. You’d also notice the stain from the eye liner on my arm. All of Dior’s Proliners (RM94) are amazingly pigmented. A touch of the liner on my lash line will give me intense colour. To remove, an oil based remover is a must.
One thing I don’t get from this collection is the brow chalk (RM98). It is quite big and chunky, nearly 5 times the size of the Proliner! It is impossible to fill in my brows straight from this brow chalk! So what I do is I use a separate brush to pick up the product, and then fill in my brows like I would a brow gel. The texture of this brow chalk is like dry wax, and it does stay on very well. I have no complaints about the performance, but the shape of the chalk is weird. Way too big!
Another new product from Dior is this duo stick (Diorblush Light & Contour RM182). One side is the highlighter and the other side is for contouring. I have the shade 002 Medium and it’s a tad bit too dark for me. The highlighter side is not light enough, and a little peachy while the contour is quite warm and creamy. So on my skin tone, the contour is best used as a bronzer while the highlighter to be used on top of a blush for a subtle glow. Both light and sculpt blend easily but due to the creaminess, those with oily skin will definitely want to finish off with powder. Again, if it is a little more dainty, it would offer more precision.
As usual, Dior always releases lip products with their seasonal collections. There are 4 Dior Addict lipsticks (RM115) and 4 Dior Addict Ultra-glosses (RM113) for you to choose from and Dior lip products have not disappointed me before. Here are the swatches.
I will create a look using these products for my Sunday’s post so stay tuned. It’s way too picture heavy as it is, so I’ll leave it at that. Did anything capture your attention?
