Remember last week I told you I wanted to show you something very VERY pretty? Well here it is.
Ladies, feast your eyes on the Dior Minaudière Eyeshadow and Lip Gloss Palette – Dior’s star product for Holiday 2010.
Its early days yet, and I haven’t seen many other Holiday 2010 collections, but I am going to stick my neck out and say that this one from Dior is a winner and a half. Did I say half? I meant a mile.
What is a “Minaudière”? I hear you wonder. Well according to the Merriam Webster dictionary, it is a small decorative case for carrying small articles like cosmetics or jewellery. Its French of course and for a bagaholic like me, cosmetics in a clutch is a perfect combination!
In French tradition, Dior puts cosmetics into their minaudiere – 3 eyeshadows and 2 lipglosses to be precise. There are 2 colour combinations available and mine is 002 – Pink Golds/ Ors Roses. More pics after the cut
If you know me by now, you’d realize I’d diss a palette that has cream and powder items mixed in. Well, Dior thought of that this year. They designed a gold plated flap to cover the cream products so there is no cross contamination! How wonderful is that?!
The lacquered black clutch looks amazing – I almost wish I could reuse it after the cosmetic products are used up because it deserves to be used, not just stuck on your dresser somewhere, looking pretty. I’ll try to find a way to get it to work! It closes with what feels like a magnet but which might just be physics at work. There is no clasp per se.
Pink Golds has 3 eyeshadows – Violet, Light Taupe and Light Pink overlaid with a touch of gold – and 2 lip glosses – a pink and a light shimmer gloss. I can’t bring you swatches just yet – I don’t know if I can bring myself to defile this palette immediately as I do the rest
In the meantime, here are more pictures of the palette – feast your eyes on this beauty!
There will be very very limited stock coming into Malaysia so if you’d like to make sure you do not miss out, better make a reservation with your favourite Dior counter. It will retail at RM226 (I think) and you should expect it in late October/November 2010.
Altogether now “Aww… so prettyyy!!!” Was this “very pretty” piece of news worth the wait?
The Dior Minaudiere eyeshadow and lipgloss palette is limited edition for Holiday 2010 and should retail at RM226 (about) or US$80 in the USA
