The Holiday season is quickly approaching and it is becoming quite evident now with all the holiday decorations that are emerging and holiday themed items that are launching at retail stores and hitting shelves. This is my favorite time of the year as most of my favorite beauty brands release limited edition or Holiday value sets that are only available during this time. That being said, if you ever feel like trying something new, or to simply splurge on a luxury item for either yourself, a friend or family, this is your time, the best time. 

One of the brands that always creates gorgeous and immaculate Holiday limited edition collections and packaging is Dior Cosmetics. They scream luxury and honestly, if you just see the pictures below of the products from the Holiday 2016 Collection, you can see the amount of care or precision they put into their packaging. 

In this post, I have included pictures of a few of the products from the collection, however my main focus is on creating a make-up look featuring the:
2) the lipstick Diorific Mat Velvet Colour Lipstick in 880 Fascination  ($46 cad). 

These babies are flying off the shelves and the links I have included above still contain some stock left for purchase (good luck! - sorry if it's sold out by the time you read this post!). The palette that I received for review is a blend of beige, lilac and violet - the other palette available for purchase (colour palette 66) contains more silver, black and grey tones. Both palettes contain a golden beige/champagne toned shadow though. I'm so glad I received this one (776) as the colours definitely speak to me more.

I've included pictures here of the items received for consideration and review just as a preview for you readers. Like I mentioned above, the review is focused on the make-up look this time. I will be posting subsequent posts relating to the polishes and I'll create a separate look featuring the pink lipstick.

As you can see, the packaging is ultra luxurious - the gold lipstick bullet casings and even the eye shadow palette comes housed in a velvet pouch to prevent any scratching.

The 5-pan shadow palette features a beautiful sequin embossed pattern that straight looks like real sequins from afar. I don't even want to ruin it by dipping my brush in it however I also want to use it - ah, the dilemma!

The look I created is probably going to be the one I will wear ALOT this holiday season. The violet hues of this shadow palette, paired with the deep plum berry lipstick is a pair made in heaven. For even special occasions, like in the look I created, I added some silver glitter liner to add a more festive touch. It's subtle but when you blink it'll sure catch the attention of people :) 

I started off by (let's say clockwise starting from the top right is 1(pink), 2(white) 3(dark grey), 4(champagne) and 5(taupe) - shade 1 all over the lid and popped some of shade 2 in my inner corner. I then added shade 5 in the crease area the taupe is a really nice crease color and also used some of that on my lower lash line and finally used shade 3 the dark violet toned grey onto the outer V for some definition.

I used a pair of lashes from Esquido and the glitter liner is from Lit Cosmetics.

The eyeshadow lasted a full day without any creasing. I applied the shadow on top of my usual shadow primer base which is super budget friendly from Essence at the drugstore. The colors and shadows are creamy, pigmented and long-lasting. 

The lipstick is slightly fragranced but nothing obnoxious - it delivers a beautiful color application with one swipe only as you can see in the picture below. If you want more of a tint you can just gently dab it on your lips and it can help you achieve that result.

Pictured above is the DIOR Diorific Velvet Colour Lipstick in 880 (left) 440 (right). 880 is a deep berry plum color and 440 is almost a pink coral shade which helps me look more tanned somehow. The lipsticks and the packaging it is housed in gives it a really luxe feel as well as a good weight to it. Out of the two, I would suggest opting for 880. It's gorgeous!

I hope you enjoyed this post featuring some of the items from the Dior Holiday 2016 collection! Until next time, XO - M.
