Seize your chance, follow your destiny…

Christian Dior’s lucky charm shines over the 2013 autumn collection and decorates the mythical 5 Couleurs palette. Sculpted with stars, the eye shadows shimmer with metallic shades and reflections. Shrouded in mystery, eyes have never been so magnetic.

Truly a work of art, the 5 Couleurs palette, below in Bonne Étoile (384), is cohesively comprised of blue-greens and browns that can be used in harmony or individually. The shadows apply easily, either with the included applicators, or your choice of eyeshadow brushes, and can be layered for maximum opacity or used sparingly for a lighter touch. The Bonne Étoile palette is Limited Edition and will not be offered at Sephora.

Below are the shades swatched, starting with the centre brown and moving counter-clockwise through the palette. In natural light:

and in artificial light:

The colours are diverse enough to be used on a variety of skin tones and eye colours. I personally love that the palette offers a range of shades from a slight sheen to full shimmer!

The radiance of a stone, the magic of iridescence, and the intensity of a metallic hue… The Diorshow Fusion Mono eyeshadows easily blend across genres to recreate the depth and contrasts of a catwalk look. With an unprecedented rounded, gel-mousse texture, Diorshow Fusion Mono can be used both in its natural state, either with the provided smudging applicator or with fingertips, and can be used with a damp brush to create a totally different look. Applied damp, it provides an extreme metallic effect with a lamé finish. And it truly is an unprecedented product. You can feel the gel texture as you press the applicator onto the shadow. Highly buildable, Fusion Mono starts out slightly sheer, but builds quickly and effortlessly as you apply the product. When applied damp, it builds quickly, reaching opacity and delivering on its promise of the metallic effect! This has become one of my new favourite, must-have products!

Last but not least, two new shades in a lipstick and lipgloss formula that can be worn together or individually.

Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in Bonne Aventure (986) is a deep, dramatic wine shade that applies lightly on its first coat, but much like the rest of this collection, is buildable to full depth. The formula is rich and applies with buttery softness, providing moisture, and finishing in a soft shine:

Dior Addict Gloss in Ensorcelante (981), though appearing much darker in the gloss tube, is actually quite similar to Bonne Aventure once applied. It has a slight hint of a shimmer that sends light glimmering off your lips! My favourite part about the Dior Addict Glosses? They are moisturizing and non-sticky!
Here is Ensorcelante by itself:

I am totally obsessed with this collection, and cannot get enough of the Dior Addict lip products!

Although it’s not the official start of fall, today marks the start of a new school year and brings with it… well, the unofficial end to summer. It seems like this summer barely arrived and it’s already gone, but at the same time, I’m excited for fall’s fashions and beauty arrivals!

Today I bring you a preview of Dior’s gorgeous Mystic Metallics collection for Fall 2013!

Inspired by a lucky star that Monsieur Dior stepped on one evening in April 1946 that led to his opening his own House the following day, the Mystic Metallics reflect like this star in the Dior galaxy. The radiance of a stone, the magic of iridescence, and the intensity of a metallic hue. Eyes are dressed in shadow and light, whilst nails defy every colour in the spectrum. Prepare to be transcended by the mysterious colours of the galaxy in Dior’s fall collection.

The 5 Couleurs Mystic Metallics eyeshadow palette shimmers with metallic shades and reflections in blue-greens and browns in the Bonne Étoile set, aubergines and gold in the Constellation palette.  Starting with the luxurious case with a hidden CD emblem, which comes with its own protective sleeve, the 5 Couleurs set is the epitome of Christian Dior’s lucky charm. Each eyeshadow colour is embossed with a gorgeous star motif. The Bonne Étoile palette is Limited Edition and will not be offered at Sephora ($61 Cdn).

The Diorshow Fusion Mono eyeshadows  ($31 each) recreate the depth and contrast of a catwalk look. an unprecedented, rounded, gel-mousse texture weightlessly illuminates the eye with multi-faceted, long-lasting colour. Eyes dress up in the dazzle of black diamonds, of amber or even the moon. Eight shades with intense shimmer and a powerful emotional charge.

Use two application techniques for two different looks:

Soft Fusion: applied with fingertips, the eyeshadow blends into the skin to create a light veil of colour and a subtly shimmering result.
Bold Fusion: applied using the smudging applicator that is included in each Fusion Mono shadow, the finish is intensified to reveal pure and extreme colour.
Tip from the pros: lightly wet the shadow for an extreme metallic effect with a dramatic lamé finish.

Here are four of the eight Fusion Mono shadows:

Dior has created four new shades of Dior Addict Extreme lipcolour to go with the Mystic Metallics collection. From poetic rosewood to dramatic purple, colour is bewitching.

In harmony with the Dior Addict Extreme lipstick shades, the four new Dior Addict Gloss references capture light and accessorize the lips. Perfectly coordinated to be worn over Dior Addict Extreme or on their own.

See two of each of the Dior Addict shades here:

Rounding out the collection are the Dior Vernis Mystic Magnetics ($27 Cdn and LE, not available at Sephora) in a shadowy blue lacquer, and Dior Vernis ($25 Cdn) in Destin (382) a silvery pink, and Galaxie (992), a brocade prune. (See Destin and Galaxie above.)

Finally, Diorshow Blackout mascara will be released in its new tube and with a new XL brush to finish the intense and mysterious collection ($31 Cdn).

I had a chance to test Dior Addict Extreme in Gri-Gri (546), a nude pink creme. The formula is rich and applies with buttery softness, finishing in a soft shine. Gri-Gri is a perfect nude lip to contrast the rich, metallic shadows of this collection.

This shade is a Limited Edition and will not be available at Sephora ($32 Cdn).

The perfect complement to Gri-Gri is Dior Addict Gloss in Charm (364). An ultra-high shine gloss with a hint of the same nude rosy colour above, it applies with a small brush applicator which I LOVE and love to use. Here is Charm worn over Gri-Gri:

This shade is also Limited Edition and will not be available at Sephora ($31 Cdn).

Even with my tan, I found the nude shades to be highly wearable and flattering. Whether going for a smoky eye/nude lip look or an overall soft look, both these shades will be added to my go-to arsenal!

This collection is available now at Dior counters. For more information, head to Dior.com!

Will you be picking up any of the Mystic Metallics this fall?
