Dior goes for gold in holiday makeup collection

With the holiday season fast approaching, cosmetics brands are presenting special collections brimming with festive colours and shimmer.

Dior is no exception to the rule, and its new Golden Shock collection celebrates all that glitters. The line’s new lip colours introduce an interesting concept: two-sided lipstick. One side is matte and the other is enhanced with golden shimmer particles, allowing you to play with different effects (Diorific Golden Shock Lipstick, six shades). Makeup artists can apply both sides of the lipstick to the entire mouth (matte first, shimmer on top), apply the matte colour to one lip and shimmer to the other, or bring out the inner lips by applying shimmer to the part.

For those who prefer a gloss, there are also two new shades: Pink Excess and Gold Rain (Dior Addict Gloss).

Dior also wants to bring a touch of gold to manicures this season, namely through the Golden Shock top coat with a gold leaf effect. There are also four new base shades: Gold Equinoxe (shimmery gold), Shock, (bright red), Mirror (pearly white) and Smoky (dark purple) (Diorific Nail Enamel and Top Coat).

To frame the windows to the soul, the collection also includes a new gold mono eyeshadow (Diorshow Fusion Mono, Mirror) and two five-shade eye palettes, both including gold shades of course. The Golden Reflections palette includes steel grey, bronze, lavender and beige, while the Golden Shock palette offers dark plum, pink and mauve (5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes).

Finally, the gold theme carries over to the complexion in two pressed powder compacts with a rose gold or yellow gold shimmer (Diorific Illuminating Pressed Powder, Gold Shock and Pink Shock).

The Dior Golden Shock collection is available now at select retailers and at
