You have been invited to step into Christian Dior’s magical garden for a Dior Garden Party.Â The Spring 2012 Collection is inspired by Christian Dior’s home in Granville, off the Cliffs of Normandy, where a magnificient rose garden he planted and continues to bloom. The Spring Garden is filled with violets and floral greens merging delicately like a pastel bouquet full of life and love:
“After women, flowers are the most lovely thing God has given” – “Monsieur” Christian Dior
My favourite piece of the collection, the Dior Garden Clutch (RRP$120) with its delicate pink case like a woven basket is so coveted I’m lucky to have one. It features two rose-shaped clasps open up to reveal 3 eyeshadows pressed with rose pattern for the eyes and a pink gloss and Lip Maximizer for the lips. Available in two colour harmonies: 001 Milly Garden (Pinks/Silver) and 002 Granville Garden (Pinks/Pastel Green).
Also included in the collection are the 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette “Garden Edition” (RRP$103) is embossed with a delicate rosebud pattern and available in two harmonies: 441 Garden Pastels inspired by lush green foliage & 841 Garden Roses with pinks and purple.Â And the latest additions to the 3 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette (RRP$72) are inspired by green gardens and precious violets. Available in 461 Smoky Garden & 961 Smoky Violet.
The Rosy Glow Blush (RRP$76) will give you radiant cheeks with a rosy glow! The transparent blush adapts to your skin, moisturises and customises a healthy glow upon application for natural rosy look.
For the Lips, offset the soft green or violets eyes with light pink lips for a romantic look with the new lip shades. Apply Serum de Rouge for a soft glow or layer the new Dior Addict Ultra Gloss over Rouge Dior lipstick for added plumpness and colour.Â The limited edition colours are;Â ROUGE DIOR in 363 Corolle Pink / 448 Tulip Pink* RRP$50 SERUM DE ROUGE in 255 Pink Dew Serum / 355 Petal Serum RRP$58 DIOR ADDICT ULTRA GLOSS in 152 Socialite Pink / 396 Party Lilac / 452 Pretty Rose* RRP$49 *On-going colours
OMG, these nail varnish colours are really scented, it’s not a strong fragrance but it is there. The colours look amazing on as you can see from my lovely photo of my finger and toe nails.Â The Garden Party Nails are two limited edition colours; Waterlily 504 (the soft green) and Forget-me-not 694 (floral lilac) have proven to be incredibly popular in-store that Dior have had to restock them, so I suggest you get in quick (RRP$39 ea).
