The Dior Beauty Limited Edition Christmas 2017 Collection
DIOR THIS YEAR HAS ABSOLUTELY KILLED IT WITH THEIR HOLIDAY COLLECTION IN MY OPINION!!!
There are more nail polishes this year than last, an array of gorgeous lipsticks – from satin to matte finishes, one gorgeous glowy golden loose powder, a beautiful powder blush, lip and cheek stains, a brow mascara, a glittery nail liner, and two beautifully pigmented five colour eyeshadow palettes.
In all, I would have to say that this could well be my most favourite holiday collection that I have EVER seen by Dior!
The Diorific Khol Powder Lipsticks!
POWDER LIPSTICK – ULTRA-PIGMENTED – LONG-WEAR INTENSITY
The #NEW and rather unique KHOL POWDER LIPSTICKS by Dior are said to leave the lips with an amazing, intense colour – and a powdery, matte finish! The faceted stick applicator supposedly allows an easy, ultra-precise and effortless application, whilst the finish is described to smoothen the lips and leave them with a beautiful velvet, matte finish. These lipsticks are said to be intense but also long-wearing, which could be a very beautiful thing to see indeed!
Wearing: Diorific Khol 671 Vibrant Tourmaline
Before I begin to tell you my thoughts on these lipsticks themselves, I think it is very important just to outline the absolutely stunning packaging…
Each and every time Dior release a holiday collection OR even actually an individual product, I feel as though the packaging and the appearance of the product itself just really shines through. I love how ‘extra’ these lipsticks are, how sophisticated but also completely un-storable and difficult these lipsticks may be too, as I feel this really makes them stand-out (in more ways than one). I also must tell you that the glamorous mirrored-gold finish really emphasises Christmas in my opinion and because of this, I feel as though these would be an ideal gift for a makeup lover out-there, as they really are so unique and unusual!
Top – Bottom: 741 Deep Ruby • 341 Pure Topaz • 671 Vibrant Tourmaline
The lipsticks themselves live up to everything that I could possibly hope for as well! The pointed tip enables one to apply the lipstick precisely, as well as really clean and neat… I actually much prefer the application process to one of these lipsticks rather than any other lipstick that is currently on the market.
The pigmentation on all three of the shades that I, personally own is creamy, rich yet matte and just really stunning in my opinion. I love how these feel like a giant BUT not chunky lip crayon too, as I feel products like this give a lot more control and precision, which is important – especially when using a deeper, darker colour like Deep Ruby for example.
The powder finish on these lipsticks may take a bit of getting used to too – and not for the reasons that you may think.
I can’t say that I noticed any one of these lipsticks to feel especially powdery, although, there isn’t a satin finish either?!
It’s strange because these do give the lips a matte finish, but it isn’t a dry, uncomfortable matte finish?! The formula is smooth, light in consistency but then, deeply, deeply pigmented and rich in colour. I would also have to tell you that these lipsticks wear beautifully throughout a typical, standard day. I can eat and drink, just like normal and perhaps only have to keep my eye on my lipstick every now and then. After maybe 6 hours of wear?! The lipstick has worn well around the corners of my mouth but who could really expect anything more from a powdered formula lipstick like one of these?!
