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.

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 icon razz First Look: Dior Holiday 2010   Dior Minaudière Eyeshadow and Lip Gloss Palette 002 Pink Golds

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!!!” icon wink First Look: Dior Holiday 2010   Dior Minaudière Eyeshadow and Lip Gloss Palette 002 Pink Golds Was this “very pretty” piece of news worth the wait? icon wink First Look: Dior Holiday 2010   Dior Minaudière Eyeshadow and Lip Gloss Palette 002 Pink Golds

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

very pretty indeed! i’m surprised, though, with the packaging cos they’d always make use of those checkered motif synonymous with their lipstick casing and many of their travel makeup sets…

ParisB October 13, 2010 at 10:00 am

Yep Dior did away with their signature Cannage pattern this round. I think its really refreshing! Its a bit of a houndstooth design I think. Wonder if that heralds anything for the coming fashion season :)

very pretty and wearable ;), should put it for my own Christmas list…lol

ParisB October 13, 2010 at 10:09 am

That’s what I thought too – its so wearable without being over the top! That is a case I’d commit a faux pas with by whipping out and touching up my lipstick in public! All other women will go green with envy :D

shuaddict October 13, 2010 at 10:07 am

That’s not pretty, that’s stunning! It’ll be great if they would have refills because that’s a palette people would want to re-use.

I didn’t even look at the colors of the products at first :)

ParisB October 13, 2010 at 10:10 am

I know right? This is a palette to keep and use over and over again, not just to use up and then wonder what to do with it. For the lip products, I guess we could melt in our own lipsticks and keep it going :D Eyeshadows take longer to finish… or never do :P

jojoba (My Makeup Reviews) October 13, 2010 at 10:17 am

it looks great. i particularly like the cover over those lip products. it’s a nice touch they added to the palette and all palettes should be like this! the eye shadows are beautiful too.

Reply

ParisB October 13, 2010 at 11:08 am

I feel the exact same way! All mixed palettes should come with a cover over the cream products to prevent cross contamination. I love that Dior thought of it :D

Reply

Eli October 13, 2010 at 11:13 am

Pretty! Its nice to see that someone finally thought of including a cover for cream products.

Not tempted because I know the lip colours won’t show up on me. =P

You said it! Its about time cosmetics companies realized that cross contamination does occur and when it does, its NOT pretty!

Eyeshadows are amazing lovely! I mush have it… :-D
I’m not keen on glosses in palettes but I will wait for your swatches before making a judgement. Wish the eyeshadows were sold separately though… *longing sigh*

SO PRETTY! but.. the price is far more “pretty”

Reply

ParisB October 13, 2010 at 4:24 pm

Lol! Indeed although its pretty “reasonable” all things considered – dior has had less pretty things at the same price and I think this ones one of the best yet :)

the eyeshadow colors look pretty too!!

It’ll be so nice if the cover can be re-used…Will be waiting for your swatches!

ParisB October 13, 2010 at 8:01 pm

Eeks! Another request for swatches! :P I don’t forsee the eyeshadows finishing so perhaps if the lip products are finished, we could melt in new lip products :)

I fully agree! All brands can take a leaf out of Dior’s book and give us that flap. I think most of us will enjoy palettes better :D

You’re absolutely right. Dior has scored a winner this year with this palette. I don’t know how they’re going to top it now :P

Hi Paris. I wonder how big is the clutch palette ya? Is it bulky, easy to carry around in your handbag? It looks kinda heavy, is it heavy? Btw, you mentioned a few times in your comments on melting your lipstick. How do you do it? Have you done it before? Oh yes, another vote for a swatch request please! :)

Reply

ParisB October 23, 2010 at 11:07 pm

I’ll have to get back to you on this one! ;)

Olga October 30, 2010 at 8:58 am

I would also love a post on melting lipstick – I plan on doing the same with my palette :-) Great review!
