Dior Autumn 2016 Makeup SKYLINE Collection Review & Swatches

31 Jul 2016

Dior seasonal makeup collections are always impressive but I am particularly loving this one because it has new contour and highlight products, eyeshadow palettes with the most intricate detailing and copper gloss. Love it! Here’s a look at the new Dior Autumn 2016 Makeup SKYLINE Collection.

The inspiration for this collection is the Parisian skyline which is can be seen when you check out the delicate yet perfectly executed design of the eyeshadow palettes which show an Eiffel Tower structure. It’s amazing!

These shades are so beautiful and the texture is super soft and pigmented. I think this is possibly one of my favourite 5 Couleurs palettes ever. If you’re quick, you can see me apply it on snapchat. The other palette is called Parisian Sky and it’s a cooler-toned affair.

Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky – 094 Gravity

There are 5 other shades in this formulation – 184 Temptation, 564 Fire, 684 Reflexion, 764 Fusion and 794 Fever. Fusion is an amazing orange – I think I need it!

Diorblush Light & Contour – 002 Medium Contour

I applied this in a few snapchat videos which you can catch if you are quick. It’s a beautiful creamy formula that blends out beautifully. As it’s so pigmented, I’d recommend using a light hand to apply. You can always add more if you want to intensify the contour. This is the medium shade; there’s also 001 Soft Contour and 003 Intense Contour.

I haven’t tried this shade on my lips yet but I think it would look amazing on darker skin tones. It is so rich and luscious. The other shades in the collection are 041 Famous, and 339 Gorgeous.

Dior Flash Luminizer – 800 Pearly Pink

I love Luminizers and Pearly Pink is brightening and eye-opening. It’s quite a versatile product that you can use for brightening, highlighting and sculpting. The other shade is 500 Pearly Vanilla.

  1. I went to Paris in April with my fiance and we loved it! I sooo want the eyeshadows palette, we both really enjoyed our visit to the Eiffel Tower even though it took ages to get to the top because of the queues!
