Following the preview of Dior’s Holiday make-up collection, you will find the swatches and my thoughts on the products in this post…
Dior Christmas Collection 2015/2016
Dior // “Diorific Mat Lipstick”
#430 Radieuse | #540 Magique | #580 Fascinante | #590 Troublante | #750 Fabuleuse | #770 Fantastique
The limited edition collection features 6 lip colours. The texture of all the shades are velvety/matte, very pigmented and the application is quite creamy. Looking back at the lip swatches, I can definitely say that the two nudes #430 Radieuse & #580 Fascinante are my favourite ones! The longevity of the bold colours were about 4 hours, and it keeps the lips moisturised – doesn’t dry out at all. Considering that I ate and the lipstick was still perfectly on, was pretty impressive to me – it dries into a pigmented lip stain. The burgundy shade (#590 Troublante) was a bit disappointing to me, I was expecting more pigmentation from that one since its the darkest shade. It’s still a very beautiful shade, it just didn’t meet my expectations. The nudes obviously don’t last 4+ hours since they don’t really stain the lips. Overall, its a beautiful luxurious lipstick and I can definitely see myself wearing these through out the Winter season.

Dior // “State Of Gold Palette” #886 Blazing Gold
I like this palette as much as I liked the palettes from Dior’s Fall collection. The colours are beautiful and very pigmented. The pigmentation and colour of the burgundy eyeshadow reminds me A LOT of Kat von D’s new palette. Her products are always super pigmented so that’s definitely a plus. The texture of these eyeshadows are quite velvety and frosty, the darkest shade (the 5th shade) contains some sparkly shimmers in it.

Dior // “Diorefic Vernis”
#001 State OF Gold | #227 Gris-Or | #454 Secret | #951 Passion | #991 Mystere
I loved each and every one of these nail colour shades but my faves are #951 Passion, #991 Mystere & #227 Gris-Or which is the glittery one. Usually with glittery nail colours it takes about 5 coats to get your nails fully covered in glitter, with this one it took 1 coat only! That was pretty impressive to me. The rest of the shades are beautiful, colourful, yet bold colours and very pigmented.
