JEWELS OF THE SEASON
December—the perfect time to glam up your beauty routine for yearend celebrations and high-drama parties. At Dior, the mood for the holiday season is as radiant and opulent as ever, with the arrival of the Precious Rocks collection; a festivity of firm favourites available in deliciously rich gemstone colours and iridescent shimmers to flatter the modern Dior woman, from day to night.
A marriage of effortless sophistication with a dash of rock ’n’ roll spirit, the warm jewel tones reinterpreted in the iconic Dior 5 Couleurs Precious Rocks palette makes eyes smoulder under the mistletoe. To further highlight the allure, Peter Philips, creative and image director at Dior Makeup, introduces brand-new gemstone shades—from precious corals to deep amethysts—of the Diorific Matte Fluid, a velvety soft lip and cheek colour to complement the eyes.
The shining star of the Precious Rocks collection, which is perfect for seasonal gifting, thanks to its rock-inspired couture case, is the iconic Rouge Dior Lipstick gift box. And while the iconic shade 999 Matte takes centre stage, this limited Bijou Edition has been redesigned with Dior’s symbolic faceted cannage band, and offered alongside five refills in other iconic shades. Kohl for the lips? Absolutely. The ultra-pigmented velvety Diorific Khôl is also reintroduced in the season’s gemstone colours including vibrant amethyst, shimmering topaz brown, and ruby red—all in their powdery glory. On the other end of the texture spectrum, the hydrating Dior Addict Ultra Gloss comes in two new brilliant shades: Gold Essence, a liquid gold sheen, and Ruby Essence, a hypnotic metallic red. And for the final word in beauty, the sparkling tones of Diorific Vernis nail polishes, are available from Amethyst, a dark plum, to Ruby, an irresistible cabernet red.
SMELL THE ROSES
Nothing beats the scent of lively florals to lift the mood this season, and the new J’adore L’Or, created from an expressive bouquet of piquant Rose de Mai and jasmine grandiflorum absolute from Grasse, does exactly that, with added opulence from tonka bean absolute and sensual Tahitian vanilla absolute, preciously contained in the emblematic J’adore bottle with an enhanced Masai necklace of golden threads. There’s truly no more elegant way to celebrate this holiday season. Dior Holiday 2017 collection is available at Dior Makeup boutiques and counters nationwide.
