THE SMOKY DIOR LOOK
Purple is my Colour; it sublimates the eyes and gives expression to femininity. I created Smoky Purple, enveloping it in a touch of mystery and seduction…
Creative Director for Dior Makeup
Reinterpreted in every one of John Galliano’s fashion shows, Tyen’s favourite colour comes in smoky, ashen mauve and gray-pink shades that extend all the way to intense black, highlighted with spectacular, refined silver.
A very “couture” colour pact for a magnified, perfectly controlled and highly appealing femininity.
The result? Ultra-seductive, captivating and assertive eye makeup.
Did you read the phrase “smoky, ashen mauve and gray-pink shades“? How can I miss this collection? After getting Chanel‘s Les Contrastes de Chanel Collection for Fall 2010, I was wondering if I should get anything from Dior. The colour scheme seems pretty similar to each other.
I was really interested in the 5 Colour Eyeshadow Palette in Misty Mauve (S$90). Swatched it and I was really glad it’s totally different from Enigma. This palette consists of eyeshadows in various finishes. It comes in satin, frost and there is one in matte which made it so much more seductive.
Love the lips the above model is wearing? It’s Serum de Rouge Luminous Colour Lip Treatment (S$49) in Smoky Pink 580. It’s a lovely gray-pink shade and this is my first Dior Lipstick.
The packaging reminded me so much of the Cle de Peau lipstick I bought in June. The texture is very similar too, it’s super silky and glides on smoothly and effortlessly. It’s a blend of lipstick and lip gloss contained in one slim stick.
The model glossed it up with Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in Tailored Mauve, 692 (S$40).
Swatches of the lipstick and lip gloss taken indoor with flash. It’s slightly darker in real life, I guess the flash bleached it a little. But both the lip products have amazing texture.
It’s worth a swatch the next time you visit a Dior counter.
