Inspired by the flowers in the beautiful gardens of Christian Dior’s childhood home in Granville, Peter Phillips composed the Limited-Edition Spring 2016 Color Collection with his amazing eye for color. The Glowing Gardens Collection is designed to create both graphic and natural looks that are at once radiant, luminous, and bright.
The DIOR Glowing Gardens Color Collection for Spring 2016 includes:
Dior 5-Couleurs ‘Glowing Gardens’ Eyeshadow Palette in Rose Garden #451, $63
Dior 5-Couleurs ‘Glowing Gardens’ Eyeshadow Palette in Blue Garden #031, $63
Diorskin Nude Air ‘Glowing Gardens’ Illuminating Powder in Glowing Pink #001 and Glowing Nude #002, $58
Diorshow Colour & Contour in four shades: Iris #157, Orchid #757, Twig #557 and Water Lily, #457, $33
Diorblush ‘Glowing Gardens’ in Floral Pink #844, $44
Le Vernis in Bluette #301 and Lilac #491, $27 ea.
Although technically not part of the spring collection, for lips, the new Dior Addict Lipstick in Wild About Pink #292 is a must-have!
What I love about the Glowing Gardens Collection is that you can really see the influence of flowers and gardens in and on each product. From the gorgeous Illuminating Powders (already sold out everywhere) to the new Colour & Contour stylos, your eye is captivated by color. And isn’t color what we’re craving after a long, dreary winter?
The new Diorshow Colour & Contour eye duos are a two-sided pencil with a waterproof, iridescent long-wearing eyeshadow on one end and an easy-glide eyeliner on the other. When I tried them at Sephora, I found good pigmentation and color payoff. I hope these become part of the permanent collection.
The Dior Glowing Garden Spring 2016 Color Collection is available in department stores including Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus (the Beauty Event is going on!), Sephora and Dior.com. Everything is limited-edition, so don’t wait; I’m still devasted I didn’t grab the Glowing Gardens Illuminating Powder when I first saw it.
