Occasionally a collection comes along where I just want to hoard it away in a drawer somewhere, only bringing it out to ‘ohh and ahh’ over and never actually use it. Please tell me I am not the only one who feels this way?? When I saw the Dior Splendors Collection for Holiday 2016, I had one of those moments. The sequined embossed shadows had me so heart-eyed that Mr GLG actually said, “that’s really cool, but doesn’t that mean you won’t ever want to use it?” – he knows me well, folks. For the sake of blogging, I did swatch one of the palettes, and the other I am sharing with one lucky winner to kick off my 12 Days of Giveaways!! Keep reading for the reviews and to see how you can enter to win!
The Dior Splendors Collection really is a thing of beauty; The gold packaging and embossed powders scream holiday glamour and luxury to me! I love that Dior goes a little extra for the season, giving each years offering something that makes it memorable. The Diorific Lipsticks are housed in stunning Hollywood glamour style gold tubes which instantly scream ‘keepsake’ for me, as do the golden topped Diorific Vernis Nail Polishes which would look stunning sitting out on a vanity.
The real star of the show for me are the 5 Couleurs Splendor Palettes. The sequin pattern that is pressed into each eyeshadow shade in these palettes is stunning – so much so that it pained me to even swatch one! All in the name of beauty though, I swatched the plum/cool brown “Precious Embroidery” palette for you below and it definitely lived up to my high expectations. Dior shadows can sometimes be sheer, but this swatches beautifully and built up easily on the eye. I found it that it made a really nice take on a smokey eye that would be perfect for those who don’t want to go the basic brown/black route!
The Diorific Vernis polishes are also stunning in this collection, I have two: Cosmic and Splendor (gold laced plum and raspberry respectively). They both apply well in one coat, but get maximum impact with two and they have a nice wide brush for easy application. I think these would make such a lovely gift for your nail polish-loving friend, mother in law or coworker – who wouldn’t want a spendy polish they wouldn’t maybe treat themself to?
