Bit by bit, Dior’s fall collection is arriving at makeup counters — and proving me wrong yet again about my not liking fall.
I think in many people’s eyes, the jewel of the collection is the new 173 Night Butterfly quint ($56). Though the black center shade of this quint looks sparkly — and is slightly sparkly upon first laydown — as soon as I blew away the excess powder, the sparkles blew away too. I can’t seem to confirm this with a reliable source, but I’ve heard that this quint may be an addition to the permanent line.
Fall also offers a new eyeshadow duo (055 Cocktail Look, $35) and two eyeshadow singles ($27.50), the sparkly 056 Argentic and the matte 066 Trendy Taupe. Nordstrom’s site shows no indication that these are limited edition, and I would love to see Trendy Taupe available year-round.
The part of the collection that really stole my heart, however, is most definitely limited edition. Dior has created two “Jazz Club” Smoky Eye Palettes ($65), the first (001) is a beautiful collection of matte and shimmer neutral shades with a black cream-to-powder liner. Wild thing, I think I love you. The second (002) is available only at Nordstrom, and it’s an assortment of neutral-berry-purple shades with a burgundy cream-to-powder liner. I don’t even wear purple shadow, but I find myself wondering if I could start.
It can be hard to track down complete information regarding Dior’s releases, but the absolutely wonderful Lina of The Beauty Look Book helped me piece together this list of the items included in Dior Fall. There are still a few holes, and I’ll fill them in as soon as I find the information.
