Tag Archives: Dior Trianon

For Spring 2014, Dior launched the very Limited Edition Trianon Collection, a selection of pastels for the eyes with blushed cheeks and pops of colour on the lips. See the entire range of this special collection here!

Today I present to you some of my favourites from this pretty collection!

Let’s start with Diorblush Trianon Edition in Corail Bagatelle (763) – a beautiful and universally flattering coral shade embossed with a beautiful vintage bow motif in Dior’s signature mirrored case with its own velour pouch.  I think this is one of my favourite blush shades ever! Truly suitable to almost any skin tone, this pinky-coral shade applies softly to start, yet is highly buildable to your desired level of blush. There is a hint of fine shimmer in this blush that translates to a glowing, but not sparkly, finish on the skin.

Dior’s 5 Couleurs Eye Shadow Palette in Pastel Fontanges (234) includes a sugared-almond pink, baby blue/teal, golden pale yellow, a chocolate brown, and a soft, warm grey. Adorned with the emblematic bow, a beaded ribbon and the Dior signature, the spring, limited edition of the 5 Couleur palette takes a delightful dive into the world of the Petit Trianon. This gorgeous retro palette with two applicators and in a signature Dior velour pouch, is almost too pretty to use, no?

Below, swatches of 5 Couleurs shimmering shades, starting with the warm grey (top left in the palette and going clockwise) from left to right: Warm grey, baby teal, almond pink, chocolate, golden pale yellow. Most of this palette is shimmering in very soft pastel shades, with the chocolate being the darkest and most matte, and the centre golden highlight shade possessing the most obvious sparkle. Angelic, girly, and so pretty!

To amp up the lips against the soft eyes presented in Dior Trianon, Dior presents Rouge Dior in a bright yet pastel coral, Rose Crinoline and in pure fuchsia, Allégresse.

Below, Rose Crinoline, a pale coral that leaned almost towards a brightened pink-nude on me:

and Rouge Dior in Allégresse, a sexy, bold but creme, fuchsia:

The concentrated shine of Dior Addict Gloss is presented in shades of Pétillante peach and Exquise pink. Both shades are complementary to the two limited edition Trianon Rouge Dior.

The limited release Dior Vernis Trianon nail lacquer shades, inspired by the Trianon garden, included seasonal floral hues of cornflower in Porcelaine, soft peach of Bouquet, and the pure fuchsia of Bloom.

A play on texture inspired by the porcelain and china of the 18th century, the matte topper Perlé provided the finishing effect! If you follow me, you know how much fun I had with these shades by using them in this abstract mani:

With this collection, Dior introduced a new variation of its iconic Lip Glow in a Trianon-exclusive shade: Coral. Sheer, ultra-moisturizing, and a fantastic base for Dior Addict or Rouge Dior, I loved combining it with simply a hint of Dior Addict in Pétillante.

Yesterday I shared with you Dior’s Trianon collection for Spring 2014, a collection of beautiful pastel shades with bright pops of colour. Although quite chilly in Toronto, today’s beautiful sunny day inspired me to reach for the coral, peach Dior Vernis in Bouquet… and what better way to add some pop to your life than with a gradient?

Here is the gorgeous Bouquet sponged over OPI’s My Vampire is Buff, my go-to base for nail art (and the perfect shade if you don’t love white):

Dior_Vernis S14 BouquetGradientHow absolutely pretty is Bouquet?

Don’t forget to check out Dior Vernis in Porcelaine and Perle in yesterday’s post, if you missed it!

I absolutely cannot wait to wear the Dior Vernis Trianon shades – the colours are pure perfection and make me think of sunny days ahead. Dior Vernis has quickly become a favourite in terms of colour choices, wear and durability, and that shine is amazing! All four new shades are available in limited release beginning in mid-January.

What do you think of my summery gradient? 🙂

Continuing on in with its Versailles-inspired looks, this time from the 18th century Petite Trianon of Marie-Antoinette, Dior brings us the Trianon Collection for Spring 2014.

She is fascinating… possessing a porcelain complexion. And on her cheeks, a burst of blush catches the light, proclaiming the radiance of her face. For Spring 2014, pop shades are refreshed by the delicacy of porcelain whites and powdery pastels for a fresh, edgy look.

 

Rosy cheeks are sculpted with panache with Diorblush Trianon Edition in Corail Bagatelle (763), a beautiful and universally flattering coral shade. Limited edition, $44 Cdn.

Eye shadows are matte with a dense finish. The new Diorshow Fusion Mono Matte blends into the skin for seamless application, leaving an ultra-matte finish. Subtly powdery and graced with monochromatic intensity, eyes defy fashion in beige (Songe), pink (Fantaisie), chocolate (Mirage), mauve (Céleste – limited edition), and black (Nocturne), with two finishes:
Blend in with fingertips for soft fusion, or apply using the included brush applicator for intense fusion, a more extreme pigmented look. Available mid-January, $32 Cdn.

Blend a halo of colour around the eye. Bet on monochrome or play with clashing harmonies. Blend sugared-almond pink, baby blue and golden pale yellow… be audacious. Adorned with the emblematic bow, a beaded ribbon and the Dior signature, the spring, limited edition of the 5 Couleur palette take a delightful dive into the world of the Petit Trianon. This gorgeous retro palette, almost too pretty to use!, will be available in limited release, $62 Cdn.

A play on texture inspired by the porcelain and china of the 18th century, the Dior Vernis Trianon Edition nail lacquer looks matte on application before revealing a completely new pearl-frost effect. Out in the garden, Dior explores the seasonal floral hues of cornflower in Porcelaine, soft peach (Bouquet), and pure fuchsia (Bloom). All limited edition, $26 Cdn.

Here is a first look at Dior Vernis in Porcelaine, with two coats applied:

It is truly a gorgeous cornflower blue. I added a touch of Dior Vernis in Perle to the ring finger. Look at the gorgeous matte, pearlized finish:

And with top coat, Perle is lit from within, evoking a shiny and soft iridescence:

Dior_Vernis S14 Porcelaine PerleI cannot wait to try Perle over Bloom or dark, vampy shades!

 

All Dior Trianon makeup will be available mid-January.

 

In addition to the limited edition makeup, Dior releases four new additions to their Extreme Backstage professional line-up. The new Pore Minimizer is a perfecting, matifying base that diminishes pores and creates a matte effect upon application, refining skin texture and smoothing fine lines. Its filler spheres combined with soft-focus pigments even out the complexion and erase imperfections invisibly and weightlessly, leading to perfect-looking skin even in close-up.

Tips: Apply all over to hydrated skin, starting at centre of face and blending outwards and upwards with fingertips. Pore Minimizer can be used alone or under foundation for optimal application and hold.
Touch up during the day to matify and diminish pores by patting gently onto required areas then blending with fingertips.

Glow Maximizer radiance booster provides skin an infusion of light without shine or iridescence. Inspired by studio reflectors, its imperceptible texture contains microscopic mirrors to instantly illuminate the face, sculpting features and correcting colour imperfections. Dark shadows fade, and the complexion looks as radiant as under studio lighting.

Tips: As a booster: mix a pea-sized quantity with foundation and apply a light layer to well-hydrated skin, blending outwards and upwards.
To sculpt the face: pat gently over makeup onto the desired light-catching areas such as the forehead, bridge of nose, brow bone and cheekbones.

Both Dior Pore Minimizer and Glow Maximizer will be available at Sephora January 17th, everywhere on January 30th, 2014. $42 Cdn each.

For the eyes, Dior makes professional perfection accessible to every woman with the introduction of its new eye primer Backstage Eye Prime. Its secret is a weightless volatile oil that once applied, evaporates to fix the makeup. Using pigments from foundation technologies, the eye primer unifies and corrects the lid complexion for a perfect eye makeup base. Throughout the day, the primer prevents eyeshadow from creasing, keeping colour even and true all day long. Dior Backstage Eye Prime will be available at Sephora January 17th, everywhere on January 30th, 2014. $30 Cdn each.

This was the first of the new products I had to test, and I must say, I am impressed. Eye Prime applies like a concealer-type cream, immediately drying to a powder-like finish. I have tried wearing it as a base to powder eye shadow as well as smudged kohl-type liner/shadows, and true to its promise, no creasing and no wearing off of my eye makeup. There are very few eye primers that have held up to my standards – in fact, I have relied on only one product thus far – but Dior’s eye primer is truly ‘backstage’ material.

Finally, Dior introduces a new variation of its iconic Lip Glow: a coral edition! An exclusive for the Trianon collection, the universal lip balm imprints a flash of sunlight on your lips, heightening their natural colour. $35 Cdn, available mid-January.
