Hot News from Dior for Fall 2012!

A while back I shared some exciting press releases from Dior, and not so long ago I got the opportunity to see everything in person! I’m sure that most of you have seen the Golden Jungle collection in person, but how about the new foundation, brushes, highlighter and so on?

(Dear makeup god: for Christmas can I please have a machine that dispenses Dior foundation in the house? Thank you!)

I can’t say anything before I get to test a foundation out thoroughly, but the powder compacts are for sure velvety! Also, the Nude Shimmer has real potential. I had it applied to the top of my cheekbones, below and on top of my brow bones, and also on my Cupid’s bow. There is no “glitter” or fallout with this one, and it instantly makes the parts stand out! A detailed review will be up on the blog soon, but for the moment I’m very impressed!

Here is a swatch of Nude Shimmer so you get an idea:

I honestly did not want to let go of the brushes. They’re so well-made and bunny soft (maybe with the exception of the flat-top one for powder. For some reason that one feels a bit rougher)!

More lipsticks, anyone? Rouge Dior Nude are supposed to offer nice nude lips for different skin tones. One person’s nude could be another’s concealer lips, and I’m glad Dior figured that out!

I don’t own a single lip liner yet, but this one has certainly piqued my interest. Rouge Dior Contour Nude is just as you see it, colorless when applied. However, it is supposed to make lips look well-defined and keep the lipstick going strong for longer.

The Miss Dior girl in me oohs and aahs at Miss Dior Le Parfum! It is quite a strong scent (Oriental Chypre), but much more grown-up and less sweet than the other versions I have sampled.

Have you seen any of these in person? Did anything catch your eye? I have quite some reviews lining up, so you have a lot to look forward to!

    Omg ! A foundation dispenser would me so awesome ! I’m curious about the new foundations.

    • Sunny

      Hey Eva, it might be possible to get a sample or something from the counters. I know the ones in big department stores have that dispenser!

  • AstroD

    I want it all immediately! Especially the foundation dispenser… it is makeup + gadget heaven!

    • Sunny

      I know!!! I could have stayed allll day there!

  • Ellie

    I’ve had a look at all of this and was not very impressed with the Nude shimmer powder nor the Nude lipsticks, unfortunately.. The new Nude foundations seemed quite good with the gel texture and all though! :) x

    • Sunny

      Hey Ellie, I didn’t get to swatch the nude lipsticks, but I did get the chance to play with the Nude Shimmer Powder. I think it’s something you have to try on, because it’s hard to tell from the swatches how it really performs :)

  • deijsprinses A dispenser machine! *gasp*
    Can you asks for two? 😉 I’ll try my Santa too then.

    • Sunny

      LOL I can try :)

  • Jacqueline

    That lip pencil looks very interesting!

    • Sunny

      I agree! You don’t see something like this every day!

  • Peggy Timmermans Visagie

    I really love the Nude foundation, this new version is perfect for my skin!

    • Sunny

      I still have to take my samples out and try, but I’ve heard great things about it!

  • keepingupwiththekelly

    I’ve already spotted these at my local Dior counter, I must say I was impressed, the only item that wasn’t as great as I expected was the Nude Shimmer, it just doesn’t feel as soft as my Amber Diamond.

    • Sunny

      Hey Kelly, I know what you mean! I got to compare the two, and when I review it I’ll talk about my impression as well :)

  • MakeupByJoyce

    I recently bought the Dior paddle foundation brush and I love that the bristles are thick because it doesn’t make my foundation streaky. It’s not flimsy by any means, but I just wish it was a little bit firmer. It was $45, which is pricey, but I like it well enough to keep it! =) I usually use it to apply concealer underneath my eyes and to apply a 2nd layer of foundation on my “problem areas.” I just use the brush in a tapping motion and it blends the product into my skin nicely and it provides excellent coverage.

    • Sunny

      Thanks for the tips Joyce! It’s great to hear it works so well!

  • Diana (@DianaAPBL)

    That lipliner looks very interesting indeed!

    • Sunny

      Exactly! I like the idea!

  • Teri

    Ugh, way too much prettyness! I can’t wait till this comes out, it looks so great! I heard ppl being very positive about the new highlighters! That one brush kind of reminds me a bit of the Shiseido foundation brush. Do they feel the same?

    • Sunny

      Hey Teri, yes that’s exactly what I thought! I think Paris from My Women Stuff compared the two on her blog just the other day, and they are indeed very similar!

  • Yak Man

    the first picture with all those photos looks so pretty! The lipsticks, omg. so expensive but it looks so good <3.

    • Sunny

      Hey Yak Man, the Dior lipsticks I’ve tried have good formulas, so if you see a color that you like and will wear often, try to save up for it!

      • Yak Man

        I’m going to try to save for it! Maybe I’ll buy my self a high end lipstick when I’m graduated high scool :).

        • Sunny

          OOOO that’d be a GREAT idea!

          • Yak Man

            but first thing I have to do is graduate :p.

          • Sunny

            You will!

  • Larie

    I want everything. Sigh.

    • Sunny

      Oh that’s only normal :)

  • Joyce (bronzerbunny)

    I was looking at that lip liner online yesterday! I wonder how well it works… I like the dispenser lol and can’t wait to hear your review of the foundation!

    • Sunny

      I haven’t tested the liner out yet so I can’t really say, but I like the idea!

  • Dorien (inmyprettyshoes)

    OMG! That dispenser is sooo cute!

    • Sunny

      I know! Would be SO cool to have one at home :)

  • Nanni

    The dispenser looks A-Ma-Zing!

    • Sunny

      I know right? Who needs a coffee machine when you can have this LOL

  • Annick

    I love Dior and I’m always excited to hear about their new collections. I’m excited to hear about the Nude Shimmer and cannot wait to get the Nude lipsticks (specifically in Grege!). Thanks for the heads up Sunny! :)

    • Sunny

      Ahhh I’ve heard too many good things about Greige! Once I get some of the products out of my way I’ll look into the lipsticks too!
