Gold has long been a signature color for the House of Dior. In haute couture, gold has often been used, either as an adornment or to balance other bold colors. Now, Peter Philips, creative and image director for Dior makeup, uses his vision to create a limited edition color collection for holiday.
The Dior State of Gold Holiday Collection includes:
Dior 5 Couleurs Palette in Blazing Gold and Eternal Gold, $63
Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow in #631 Blazing, $31
Diorific State of Gold Illuminating Pressed Powder, $82 (Available Exclusively on Dior.com & Dior Boutiques)
Diorific Mat Velvet Colour Lipstick in #430 Radieuse, #580 Fascinante, #750 Fabuleuse and #770 Fantastique, $38 each.
Dior Addict Gloss in #322, Sparkle, $29.50
Diorific Vernis Nail Enamel in #001 State of Gold, #227 Gris-Or, #951 Passion and #991 Mystère, $28 each
There are definitely some standouts in the State of Gold Collection. I love the Illuminating Pressed Powder, but I wish it were more widely available; I like to see a product like that in person before purchasing. I also love the Fusion Mono Eyeshadow in Blazing and the Addict Gloss in Sparkle. If I had to recommend a purchase, I would get those two products, plus the State of Gold Vernis. Gorgeous! That said, I still feel like I’m waiting for Peter Philips to hit his stride at Dior. I miss the really daring colors that he used to do at Chanel, and haven’t seen that innovation from him yet. Sigh.
The Limited-Edition Dior State of Gold Holiday 2015 Collection is available now in department stores including Nordstrom and Dior.com. Do you see any pieces that you can’t resist? Let me know!
