Cover Dior Mystic MetallicsDior-Mystic_Metallics_Fall 2013-Cover

Christian Dior was a man who believed in fate. One April night in 1946, the couturier stepped on a metal star and saw it as a sign. The next day, he set out to create his Couture House. Since then, this star has continued to sparkle in the Dior constellation, and particularly on the Fall 2013 make-up collection, with trendy shimmering shades and metallic reflections.

Dior Fall 2013 Mystic Metallics eyeshadow


Christian Dior’s lucky charm shines over the new must-have collection and decorates the mythical 5 Couleurs palette. Sculpted with stars, the eye shadows shimmer with metallic shades and reflections. Shrouded in mystery, eyes have never been so magnetic.

Bonne Etoile

Two colour harmonies exist in shades of violet and silver (864 Constellation) or blue-greens and browns (384 Bonne Etoile).

Long-Wear Professional Mirror-Shine Eyeshadow

In a single step, Diorshow Fusion Mono creates multidimensional contrasts for a professional makeup effect. Its unique cushiony gel-foam texture brightens the eyes with faceted, long-lasting colour and a weightless finish.

Apply two ways for two different effects:
Soft fusion: applied with the fingertips, the texture blends into the skin for a weightless finish and subtly shimmering result. Bold fusion: using the smudging applicator, the finish is intensified to reveal pure and extreme colour.

Pro tips: dampen the applicator slightly for a spectacular lamé effect.

Swatches Diorshow Mono Fusion

Available in 8 shades:
Lune sublime, immaculate and iridescent, for poetic eyes. – Étoile the glittering sparkle of stardust. – Aventure a dense, gleaming black, the bearer of infinity. – Cosmos the magical blue of a night beneath the heavenly skies. – Millenium khaki with bronze facets for an avalanche of light. – Météore a flamboyant and passionately sensual amber. – Chimère the charm of opaline pink, flowing on your skin. – Hypnotique a deep purple made sublime with silver.

La Vie en Rose – Dior Chérie Bow


There are two fashion labels at the moment that you should be watching very closely, Saint Laurent with Hedi Slimane at the helmet and Dior designed by Raf Simons who has maintained the high-end essence that the French house is known for while maintaining his own simplistic and futuristic aesthetic. The bar was set incredibly high for the designer of Belgian origin, but Simons did an amazing job, incorporating Monsieur Christian Dior’s classic shape’s and cut, while modernizing them at the same time. I am crazy for his S/S 2013 collection.


The same goes for Dior’s newest make-up collectionCHERIE BOW that has just hit the shelves. The bow was Christian Dior’s favorite final touch, a timeless and emblematic code of the House of Dior. The “Chérie Bow” spring 2013 collection draws inspiration from the feminine, playful effect of the bow featuring shades of powder pink, deep rose and classic shades of grey, anchored in deep black. Enjoy exploring the beauty must-haves:

The Dior Chérie Bow Palette features the classic Fontanges Bow reinvented by Dior fashion jewelry designer Camille Miceli with three elements that come together to form a delicate bow shape, sealed with a pearl duo clasp reminiscent of one of Miceli’s iconic designs. Composed of three eye shadows, a black eyeliner and lipgloss, the Rose Poudre harmony features pale pinks, grey and deep charcoal eye shadows as well as deep black eyeliner and a fresh pink gloss to finish the look.

Under the influence of Chérie Bow, the Dior 5 Couleurs Palette imprints the eyes with ultra-couture style.

At one end, a super-soft pencil applies a veil of dense, satin or iridescent eye shadow. At the other end, a foam blender impregnated with shimmering powder makes your colour sparkle.
