I have such a fascination with Christian Dior… he is by far my favourite designer. He actually had a bit of a penchant for fortune telling and superstition; he apparently used this as a big guidance point in both his business and personal life. You often see alot of this influence reflected in some of his designs; and I’ve always had a love of and interest in things like astrology, tarot readings, palm readings etc – and so he really resonates with me a lot as a designer. If you find this interesting, I’m actually going to go into it in a bit more detail on here in the new year… as there may just be a new handbag post coming your way soon – if ever there were a time for the hands clasped over mouth monkey emoji, it would be now! Anyway, enough of my waffle…
The Dior Beauty Christmas collections are always super special and this years made me extremely, extremely excited. The two products I was most keen to get my hands on were the Diorific Precious Rocks Vernis Liner – a super sparkly, precious golden glitter nail polish; and the Diorific Precious Rocks Loose Face Powder – the most incredible, glitzy powder that can be used on not just the face, but the body too.
Now first up, as always, let’s talk packaging. Hello. Dressing. Table. Goals. These look beautiful on display. The Vernis Liner reminds me of a glitzy, glamorous snow globe; and the powder, homed in its super chic, classic packaging, is much bigger than it appears when you go to purchase it on the website – always a bonus.
The powder looks stunning dusted over the décolleté and the tops of your shoulders. Now for me, it’s probably a little too pigmented and sparkly to use on my face, but as a body powder, it certainly gives the wow factor – it will pretty much last you forever too. The nail polish isn’t just your usual offering either, it actually has a super fine tipped applicator brush (like a liquid eyeliner), which makes it perfect for nail art and adding indicate detail.
The Precious Rocks collection is a real winner for me this year; classic glamour at its best. I almost wish it was available all year round, but then again doesn’t the limited edition aspect make it all the more special..?
