Dior Glowing Gardens

“After women, flowers are the most divine creations,” said Monsieur Dior. Mr. Dior never ceased to reconstruct the poetry and magic of the original garden of Granville in his creations. Faithful to the love of Christian Dior for blossoming gardens, Peter Philips, Creative & Image Director for Dior Makeup, has created a ‘glow manifesto’ for the Dior Spring look. Elements of Mr. Dior’s magical Granville Garden flourish in this collection designed to create both graphic and natural looks that are at once radiant, luminous and bright. Floral and neutral shades blossom together in a fresh colour palette, balanced with deeper tones.

Dior Glowing Gardens Spring 2016

Peter Philips created three incarnations of Glowing Gardens palettes including two shades of 5-Couleurs, two shades of Diorskin Nude Air and one flattering shade of Diorblush, each imprinted with a floral pattern inspired by the beautiful gardens of Christian Dior’s childhood home in Granville. He also designed the brand-new Diorshow Colour & Contour eye duos, a two-sided pencil with a luminous, long-wearing eyeshadow on one end and an easy-glide eyeliner on the other.

Dior 5-Couleurs Glowing Gardens Eyeshadow Palettes

The two harmonies of 5-Couleurs Glowing Gardens palettes are:

Rose Garden #451 (top right in photo below) features shades of lilac, soft pink, vibrant yellow & crisp green
Blue Garden #031 (bottom left) features shades of peach, sky blue, blue iris and subtle Dior grey. $70 Cdn each.

I am absolutely blown away by the bright-yet-subdued shades selected for this collection, making them highly versatile and wearable. I absolutely LOVE the combo of green and yellow against the brown in Rose Garden, while I love the soft grey, peach and white of Blue Garden. And as if that were not enough, the Glowing Gardens motif is breathtaking. Zoom in for the stunning detail!

Dior Glowing Gardens 5 Couleurs

Diorshow Colour & Contour Eyeshadow & Eyeline Duo

This ingenious eyeshadow and liner duo creates an instant eye makeover in a few simple movements, for a quick contrasting eye look with a soft colour glow underlined by a graphic stroke. On one side a luminous silky and long-wearing eye shadow swaths the eyes in colour, while on the other side, an easy glide, pigment-rich long-wearing eyeliner sets the look. Available in shades of lilac, peach and flattering taupe, $40 Cdn each.

Diorskin Nude Air Glowing Gardens Illuminating Powder

Introducing two shades of Diorskin Nude Air Invisible compact powders, enhance with subtle shimmer for Spring 2016 to create two iridescent beige and rosy nude highlighters. The powders boast a weightless formula with sweet orange extract, vitamins and minerals to support a toned complexion. Glowing Pink #001 (below right), Glowing Nude #002 (below left), $64 Cdn each.

Glowing Pink has a subtle duochrome that makes it extremely wearable for a soft finish, while Glowing Nude provides a soft bronze highlight. The powders are so softly milled and apply like butter.

Diorskin Nude Air Glowing Gardens

Just look at this INTRICATE DETAIL! I absolutely LOVE the floral motif under the ‘nude’ insignia. These Illuminating Powders are almost too gorgeous to use:

Diorskin Nude Air Glowing Pink

Diorblush Glowing Gardens Vibrant Colour Powder Blush

Dior’s iconic blush imprinted with intricate florals for Spring 2016. The unique Diorblush formula allows for maximum colour expression with a texture that blends seamlessly with the skin, leaving nothing but a veil of pure weightless colour. Floral Pink #844

 

Dior Vernis Glowing Gardens Spring 2016 Shades

Two new shades of Dior’s bestselling gel-like nail lacquer enriched with organic silicon for extra-long wear and formulated without toluene, formaldehyde, phthalates or camphor. Bluette #301 and Lilac #491, $31 Cdn each.

Dior Glowing Gardens Dior Vernis

I knew right when I saw Bluette and Lilac that I wanted to do a gradient with them… but first, a nude and Lilac mani was needed. So I selected Dior Vernis in Lily (121) as my ivory base and created this gradient mani.

and is it not so candy-like? : )

Dior Addict Lip Glow Colour Reviver Balm

Dior Addict Lip Glow — the Dior Backstage must-have to enhance lips and bring out their natural colour. Formulated with Dior’s Colour Reviver Technology, SPF 10 and enriched with Wild Mango and Luffa Cylindrica to protect and moisturize. Wear alone as a lip balm or primer, or team with Dior lipstick or gloss for even more radiant results! Two permanent shades: Pink #001 or Coral #004, and a limited edition Spring shade: Lilac #005, $40 Cdn each.

 

I don’t even have words for my Lip Glow addiction. It’s an incredible balm or nude finisher if you don’t want to bother with lip products… and as the amazing Ricky Wilson, Dior Celebrity makeup artist extraordinaire, taught me, a softly blended pinkish liner like Dior’s Swan topped by Lip Glow results in the perfect rosy pout!

And now it’s here in limited edition Lilac, with a Lip Glow liner to boot. Run — don’t walk — to your nearest Dior counters!!

Dior Glowing Gardens Spring 2016 Collection is Limited Edition, and is now available at Dior Counters nationwide, including at The Bay.com, Sephora and Holt Renfrew.

This summer Dior introduced technicolor magic for the eyes – through the unveiling of its new IT-look: IT-Lash and IT-Line!

Dior-off_Addict_IT_lashDior Addict IT-Lash official campaign

Dior Addict IT Lash is Dior’s new “do it all” mascara: it pumps up extreme volume and dares to create an “it-look” lash effect. It gives lashes a gleaming coat of deep black or vibrant colour. It adds curves and definition. It adds intensity to eyes, transforming them, making them look sensational from every angle.

Dior’s new Addict IT-Lash mascara introduces a new thick brush, made from soft and supple elastomer, loading lashes from the roots for an instant lengthening and volumizing effect. The brush features a rounded, spiked end to reach lower and corner lashes, helping you coat every single lash.

Dior_Addict_IT_lashDior Addict IT-Lash in Blue, Black, Pink and Purple (top to bottom)

I’ve been using this mascara daily to put it to the test in every possible situation… I am a Diorshow Mascara addict, and thought this would be a nice alternative “for now.” However, I have been blown away by its performance and effect – it truly lengthens, curls and gives incredible volume. The effect is mind-blowing when used with Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum, giving the effect of false lashes.

Dior Addict IT-Lash is available in

-It-Black, a deep black
-It-Pink, a pop pink
-It-Blue, a saturated blue for electric eyes
-It-Purple, a dazzling, deep purple for a sophisticated allure.

For a subtle effect, apply any of the coloured IT-Lash mascaras over It-Black. For a vibrant, bright pop of colour, apply any of the coloured mascaras over a coat of Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum!

Dior Addict IT-Lash in Black is my go-to, while the Blue has become a huge favourite! Blue is totally wearable on all eye colours, brightening eyes… I always receive so many compliments when I wear blue! I love Pink and Purple for special effects, or as a touch of colour on the bottom lashes.

No look is complete without a swipe of gorgeous liner. Dior Addict IT-Line provides intense colour and shine in a long-lasting formula. Applied easily thanks to its fine precision tip, IT-Line dries quickly and wears amazing well, though washes off easily.

Available in four vibrant shades to match Dior Addict IT-Lash: It-Black, It-Blue, It-Pink and It-Purple:

Four new shades of Dior’s backstage eye shadow were unveiled, especially created to work an infinite game of mix & match with Dior Addict IT-Lash and IT-Line. Diorshow Mono Eye Shadows possesses a unique texture with two professional finishes: apply dry for a subtle glow of colour, or wet for a graphic colour block. Adjust the intensity by applying more or less!
