Dior Golden Winter

Inspired by Versailles at the heart of winter, the Dior Golden Winter Holiday Colour Collection is based around shades of pink and gold, emblematic codes of the House of Dior since the first couture collection in 1947. Dior was particularly influenced by the golden era of Versailles fashion, which celebrated femininity with its ornate fabrics and structured dresses that enhanced the waist.

This holiday, the splendor of Versailles shines on in the Dior makeup collection, which draws inspiration from images of the iconic palace and its gardens covered in snow. Eyes are dressed in sparkling hues of white, yellow and rose golds, while lips are highlighted in sparkling fuchsia, vibrant red, and a rich burgundy. Nails complete the look in rosy taupe, red and golden plum.

Much like the 5 Couleurs palette from the Dior Mystic Metallics collection, the two 5 Couleurs Eye Shadow palettes in the Golden Winter collection are like tiny works of art. Beautifully finished with a quilted pattern, the 5 eye shadows in each Golden Flower (634) and Golden Snow (644) should have appeal to everyone.

Golden Flower is a beautiful warm palette, including a pearly peach, a vanilla shimmer, a rich chocolate, a gilded bronze, and a whitened gold glitter in the centre. I am totally obsessed with this palette! It is perfect for most skin tones and can be used for both day and night looks. What more can you ask for?

The Golden Snow palette leans a touch cooler than Golden Flower, and includes a pale pink shimmer, a medium-toned gold glitter, a blackened-steel grey, a grey-lilac, and in the centre, a snow white glitter. Another spectacular colour combination, with a perfect name!

Presented in a vintage-looking golden tube, the Diorific Lipsticks of this collection are presented in three gorgeous shades: Diva (038), Winter (042) and Minuit (046).

Diva is a a ruby red, perfect for the holiday and winter season. Winter is a deep burgundy creme for your inner seductress, and Minuit is a sparkling fuchsia. See Minuit and Diva below:

Two sparkling Dior Addict Gloss shades are also available in Enchanted Rose (451), a sheer nude with pearl-pink finish, and Pink Fantasy (776), a scintillating sheer but vibrant raspberry sparkler (top to bottom):

Three divine Diorific Vernis shades complete your look in Frimas (318), Minuit (995) and Marilyn (751), below left to right. Aren’t they magnificent?

And finally, inspired by the magnificent adornments of Versailles, the Diorific Jewel Manicure Duo combines two versions of Diorific Vernis: a sumptuous gold lacquer to apply as a base and luminous crystal micro-pearls to sprinkle on top for a three-dimensional result!

    Hello thx for nice review
    I want to ask your opinion
    Between 704 and 634, which one is better?

    • Sorry but I’m not sure what 704 is referring to? What product is that?
