With summer arriving just around the corner, Dior will be releasing a colourful makeup collection to celebrate this glorious season. Creative Director Tyen took inspiration from the French Riviera to create the Dior Croisette Collection for Summer 2012 consisting of fun and bright colours of the sun, sea, sky and sand.
I am very excited about this collection because the eyeshadow palettes and new lipbalms look absolutely delicious!
First up, we have the Dior 5 Couleurs “Croisette Edition” (limited edition) in two sumptuous palettes. Each palette has a pleated design that look like a burst of sun rays radiating from within. They look so gorgeous and detailed!
« Swimming Pool » explores aquatic pastels, with a splash of freshness to illuminate the eyes : ultramarine, sky blue, turquoise, pearl grey and bikini pink. The shimmering sparkle of the water is within hands reach.
« Aurora » visits the ochre of Mediterranean lands for smouldering eyes in incandescent colours. Golden brown, sunny orange, sand and golden yellow bring intense warmth to the eyes.
Dior has created their first eye gloss and these look like they are going to be a huge hit as well. According to Dior, “Its wet shine and intense colours, with multi-faceted reflections, make eyes shimmer with a fresh finish.” Sounds pretty good
The new eye gloss comes in four crystalline shades:
020 « Seashell »
560 « Tan »
240 « Azur »
750 « Sunset »
Along with the collection, Dior will be introducing two new Dior Addict Lip Balms.
« Crystal » existing permanent item
« Crystal Rose » new shade
« Crystal Coral » new shade
The “Croisette” Collection’s star product is the Diorskin Nude Tan Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder and is available in two shades (for Malaysia) #001 & #003.
I am also really looking forward to these two limited edition nail polishes too and am hoping that they’ll be made available locally. I am trying to confirm with Dior if they’ll be bringing them in and am praying hard that the answer is a resounding “yes”.
« Bikini » coral pink
« Saint Tropez » turquoise
There are more products that will be launched together in this collection but I just wanted to highlight a number of items that I am really excited about. I honestly can’t wait for these to arrive!
The collection will be made available at Dior counters from April to June 2012. So do keep a lookout for them!
Is there anything from this collection that captured your attention? Do let me know what you’re looking forward to.
