NEW from Dior: First Look at Mystic Metallics Bonne Étoile & Mystic Magnetics

Dior Mystic Metallics

Look at all the pretty stars! For autumn 2013, Dior‘s Mystic Metallics Collection (availibility in Belgium: September 4th) features two 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes that are truly the stars of the show! Isn’t Bonne Étoile stunning? I can’t wait to play with my first magnetic nail polish, Mystic Magnetics, either!

The story behind this collection dates back to one April night in 1946. Mr. Dior stepped on a metal star and allegedly said “my destiny came to meet me.” The next day, he created what would be one of the biggest couture houses of all time. The metal star never left his pocket!

Dior Bonne Etoile

Dior Bonne Étoile 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette (RRP in Belgium: 60 euros) is composed of a khaki green with gold and copper shimmer, a metallic silvery pewter, a rich brown with an olive undertone, a mid-to-dark-toned blue, and a satin yellowy green.

Most of the shades have excellent textures and color pay-off. I can’t wait to see how it’ll look on the lid!

Dior Bonne Etoile swatch

Have you tried magnetic nail polishes? I haven’t! Dior Mystic Magnetics (RRP in Belgium: 28,90 euros) will be my first one! This grayish blue is quite an intriguing shade on its own! I practiced a bit today. It’s not difficult, but some patience is required. I also figured out that I had to keep the curved end of the magnet on my fingertip. Simply hovering the magnet very close to the nail didn’t do the trick!

Dior Mystic Magnetics

I personally can’t wait to check out the new Diorblushes and the Diorshow Fusion Monos. I am particularly eyeing Hympnotique (a plum) and Millennium (a khaki/pewter/brown. It reminds me of Chanel Epatant and Benefit Skinny Jeans). Some new Addict Extremes are on their way as well, and you guys know I’m a big fan of the formula!

Have you checked out Dior Mystic Metallics? Does anything speak to you? How would you wear Bonne Étoile?

    I have Bonne Etoile too! I haven’t worn it though the shades are beautiful. I am eyeing a few of their new blushes and thank goodness they’re permanent!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I can’t wait to see those blushes!!!

  • peggy timmermans

    I like the purple eyeshadow palette way more, those colours are stunning! This is nice to but not my cup of tea. The collection however is amazing!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Peggy, I hesitated forever between the two! However, since I already own many purples, Bonne Etoile would be a nice change! I can’t wait to see the new blushes and cream shadows!

  • Caise

    they are beautiful! I can’t wait to see this nail polish on your nails! it is so pretty! :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Daria, it’s fun to play with and I’ll show you soon!

  • beauties

    love the star pattern :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Same here! It’s a little squashed after I swatched it, but it’ll take forever for it to disappear!

  • corallista

    What a lovely palette! I’m seeing a lot of blue+neutral combinations in palettes lately!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Ankita, that and khaki! Really can’t complain because I loooove khaki!

  • Bella

    Beautiful palette! And excuse my ignorance, but what on earth is a magnetic nail polish :)?

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Bella! Don’t worry. I’m a magnetic nail polish newbie as well! Basically there are metal particles in the nail polish, so if you put a magnet close to it, some pattern starts to emerge! I’ll get around to showing you how this one looks as soon as I can!

      • Bella

        Thank you Sunny :)

  • Sara_BeauTime

    Yay! You got it. I can’t wait for your look with this one. Magnetic polish is also very exciting, I have to admit I never tried one in my life although they are out for quiet some time now.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Sara, I’ll figure out how best to wear it as soon as I can 😉 You should swatch Mystic Magnetics if you can. It’s quite fun!

  • Kiss & Make-up

    *swoon* Look at that quaaaaaad. What a little gem :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I know!!! I like how the shades swatch as well! They should be easy to work with!

  • Diana

    The Dior magnetic nailpolishes look great! But the collection doesn’t appeal to me that much, the colors are way too dark.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Diana, I think that’s usually how autumn collections go! For me personally spring collections are the hardest to wear, and then things keep getting better LOL

  • Teri

    Ooooh, the swatches are too pretty, it’s exactly what I had hoped for! Can’t wait to see it on you ^^

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Teri! I’ll have to find a way to cram all these on my lids LOL

  • Jenni @ lifeandlensofbeauty

    i’ve debated long and hard and still haven’t caved in Sunny!! I can’t decide between Constellation and Bonne Etoile! Let’s hope they sell out quick so I don’t have to make a painful decision XD!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jenni, I personally prefer Bonne Etoile because I own many purples already! Maybe play with them at the counter to see how they work for you? 😉

  • Charisma Starke

    It’s too bad this is already sold out here in the states.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      What? Already? I’m so sorry to hear that :( Maybe check a couple more counters?

  • Icaria

    Oh nooo! I’m starting to be tempted by that quint!!! The more I see it the more I like it! :(

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha that happens to me all the time!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    So pretty!! I like this one, but I think I’ll get the purple one as I have so many shades like this already. I can hardly wait to see this on your lids though!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Tracy, I’d LOVE to see Constellation on you! I have too many purples so I will probably skip, but there’s this antique gold in there that makes me a little oozy 😉

  • Larie

    I like this one a lot, but I end up not using Dior quints. so I think I will pass 😛 So pretty, though!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Larie, I know what you mean! There is stuff I like but for some reason never use often (like big palettes). It definitely has an interesting color combination though!

  • Kristen / Glambunctious

    Prettttties! Can’t wait to see these shadows on your pretty peepers! Great photos, as usual!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Kristen! I’m trying to figure out how best to wear the quint!

  • ValleyDoll

    What a lovely story with the star <3 !

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Eva, I really enjoyed reading the story too! That gives this collection so much more life!

  • Isabelle

    That palette looks SO special and gorgeous.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Definitely! It’s not a color combination you see every day!

  • Redhotjillypeppers

    The palette is gorgeous and looks perfect for a smokey look !

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jill, I agree! It’ll be perfect for autumn!

  • Lisa @ MidwestGlam

    Oh my goodness! That palette! I’m trying so hard to contain myself here, but I may cave and buy this one! I can’t wait to see a look!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Lisa, I’ll get cracking as soon as I can! Bonne Etoile is not something you see everywhere, so it’d be a good piece to have in my humble opinion!

  • Liz

    I’m starting to become swayed by Étoile but there are so many pretties and so little monies, lol. As always, must swatch in person first!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha definitely take a look before you decide, Liz! I like it because it’s quite unusual, and there are many shades in there that I don’t already own a lot of!

  • Jacqueline Ma

    I am on a fence about this, historically speaking I had no luck with Dior palettes except for the five golds palette. I’m not sure if I should pick this up. The swatches look so pretty though. Decisions! Decisions!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jacqueline, aww what’s wrong with the other Dior palettes you picked up? I have some and they work well enough for me!

  • Catherine

    I haven’t tried magnetic nail polish and it’s just not something that strikes my interest. What a pretty selection of colors in the palette, though personally I’d prefer a bit less metallic-y finishes, maybe a matte or two

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Catherine, I know what you mean! I’ve tried to use the brown in the crease and it works well though!

  • VickyM

    Wow the story behind the star design of the eyeshadows is amusing, but I must be the only one who doesn´t like it, it just looks…so childish to me. The magnetic polish is interesting though, I have never tried it, what makes it different from normal nail polish?

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Vicky, I like the pattern because it’s fun! I think it’s the metallic particles added to the nail polish that makes it different. The particles move and form patterns when you put a magnet close to your nails!

  • MyLuciteDreams

    That palette is just so beautiful! I’m really over the magnetic polishes though, I’m surprised by this release. It is a pretty shade :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Taylor, the palette is a lot of fun (did a look today)! I’ve never tried a magnetic polish so this one is fun to play with. I’m not sure I’d start collecting them though!

  • Donah @ SweetJellyBean

    I am so excited to try this on Friday! I saw the purple palette in pictures and oh my it’s just soo beautiful. Not sure about the magnetic polish but we shall see since I’ve never tried one before. I guess it just never grabbed my attention when everyone was talking about it then. Thanks for sharing Sunny! x

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Donah, I’d love to hear what you think about the collection!

  • Phil

    That nail polish I’ve seen on a few people already, my bet is that this will be the new it shade from Dior for fall/winter. I think it looks better without the magnetic effect added.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Phil, I like it with the magnetic effect because otherwise you do see brush strokes! Don’t think I’ll start collecting magnetic nail polishes, but it’s fun to own one!
