Purple reigns supreme at House of Dior-Purple Revolution Collection 2012!

“After women, flowers are the most lovely thing God has given the world.”

– Christian Dior –

Oh ladies-Dior has done it again!  Read this:

PURPLE REVOLUTION (Bay Exclusive) An exclusive collection inspired by the legendary purples of The House of Dior and the color that Christian Dior called “the King of all colors!” From lips to tips this collection includes an Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in an elegant lilac, Les Violets Hypnotiques – a trio of bold Nail Vernis, Extase Mascara in a striking shade of plum and a 3 Couleurs Smoky in a daring purple harmony. Les Violets Hypnotiques: Dior’s exclusive and limited edition trio of hypnotic, elegant and captivating purple nail lacquers. Poison 996 – a deep, enchanting purple Orchid 981- a sensual, luminous plum Shadow 996 – an intense shimmering purple

Here is what I picked up from the collection (the collection boasts an eye trio, gloss, purple mascara, and 3 nail polishes)

Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss: Dior Addict Ultra Gloss features a featherweight formula with a flash-plumping, ‘spotlight shine’ effect. Hyaluronic spheres keep lips smooth and moisturized, while mirror-like micro pearls reflect light in all directions for a dazzling finish! This shimmering shade of lilac on the lips completes the look.

 

3 Couleurs Smoky Eyeshadow: Create the perfect smoky eye with this trio of shadows in a glamorous Smoky Violet harmony. The innovative sliding palette reveals a soft, powdery base that perfectly preps and colors the eye lid, while the eyeshadow duo offers different effects: more matte for a natural ready-to-wear style or a more shimmering shadow for a couture finish.

I don’t have much to say about the trio since I haven’t had a chance to try it (yet) but I am swooning over the gloss already!  It’s a beautiful lilac with just the right amount of shimmer. It’s great on it’s own or layered (I put it over my CD lip glow).  If the shadows are anything like the other CD shadows I already own, I know I’ve got a winner.

What I didn’t get but may go back for:

From L to R: Shadow, Orchid, Poison

Les Violets Hypnotiques: Dior’s exclusive and limited edition trio of hypnotic, elegant and captivating purple nail lacquers. Poison 996 – a deep, enchanting purple Orchid 981- a sensual, luminous plum Shadow 996 – an intense shimmering purple

Creates an immediate fake-lash look with a single coat Features a groundbreaking formula that offers instant volume-plumping effect Boasts an exclusive Couture-designed brush to provide exceptional lash-boosting power Gives full, striking results – Christian Dior – Mascara – DiorShow Extase Instant Lash Plumping Mascara

I think this is an absolutely beautiful collection-and it’s definitely worth a swatch at your local Christian Dior counter!

Finally a little ‘fun’ tidbit-I am LOVING the new video for Dior Addict Fragrance.  Check it out:

    That gloss looks lovely! The nail polishes…I’m still undecided. I don’t have a great love for purple, but Shadow seems so unique.

      @Larie The polishes did intrigue me. I just am so rough on my hands. If they made it in Shellac though….lol. The entire collection is beautiful-totally swatch worthy!
