Dior 2016 Fall Collection | Review, photos, swatchesNovember 29, 2016
Though it is yet to arrive in our small country, in Europe the fall is in its bloom with all its colors. These colors are the inspiration for the Dior 2016 fall collection, that celebrates the Parisian skyline, the iconic Eiffel tower and the colors of autumn leaves. Warm shades on the one hand; cool, metallic shades on the other and accentuating of contouring and sculpting of the face, that defines ones features.
Four new color correcting concealers were launched this fall, as part of the Backstage Pros series. In the heart of the concealer is a primer enveloped by color, and together they smooth the skin and color correct. The products texture is very light and the light green color I own neutralizes the redness around my nose with great success. 3.5 grams | 174 NIS.
I must admit my past experience with Dior eyeshadow pallets was not always perfect. In some cases, the shadows were lacking the pigment and texture I was expecting from a high-end brand. This time, Couleurs Skyline 5 in the color Parisian Sky 506 did not disappoint me, and the colors and textures suite my taste and needs. 3.4 grams | 290 NIS.
With Diorblush Light & Contour I expected love at first site, but though the texture and concept are exactly what I love in makeup, the color (03) is completely wrong for my (very) pale skin. I will be looking for the lightest color from the three available (01), as the product itself is creamy and easy to use. 6.5 grams X 2 | 222 NIS.
Two new additional and exciting launches are the new Rough Dior lipsticks and the iconic perfume Miss Dior, with a new fruity-floral twist and the lovely name Absolutely Blooming. The new Rough Dior lipstick formula is enriched with mango butter and hyaluronic acid, which allows a smooth and soft application and a long lasting finish. 25 new satin shades and 10 new matte shades are part of the collection that has 4 dominant colors that are the stars of the collection: 999 Matte Red, 080 Redish-coral, 060 Natural nude and 047 a vibrant lively pink that I tried. I found it comfortable on the lips, pigmented and quit long-lasting. 3.5 grams | 176 NIS.
Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming is a floral-fruity scent, feminine and sweet. Strawberries, raspberries and pomegranate are the top notes of the perfume that blend together in a balanced mix. Four different kinds of roses and peonies give the perfume its floral heart and white, crisp musk gives it a clean, sturdy base. Floral and sweet, with a freshness and lightness that is very appealing. 30 ml | 300 NIS (limited edition), 50 ml | 415 NIS, 100 ml | 592 NIS.
