If there’s one thing I’ve stopped paying attention to, it’s new seasonal makeup releases. Sure, there’ll be that odd collection or item that tugs at my heart-strings, but for the most part, I’m now immune. Which isn’t a bad thing as far as my wallet is concerned!
A part of my apathy is also due to my slight disenchantment with the releases from a couple of my favourite brands. I’m just not seeing the flair and quality that’s come out in previous years and if I might say so, Dior has been near the top of my disappointment list. That Tie Dye Summer collection? I refused to touch it with a 10 foot pole!
But during the weekend, I met up with my friend, Romana and a new friend, Fatima and we stopped by the Dior beauty boutique at Mid Valley to take a peep at the Dior Cosmopolite Fall 2015 collection. I’d seen some pictures come out over the past few weeks, and I wasn’t that keen on it, as much as I enjoy Fall/Autumn makeup collections. I was surprised that we’d received it here so soon – I’m so used to collections arriving 2 months late that any early release never fails to surprise me.
Part of the reason I wasn’t keen on this collection, was the crazy layout of the logo. I suppose Dior is adopting a bit of a younger, more playful vibe, but I just can’t get behind it. For me, a brand like Dior should embody elegance and chic. Let MAC or Urban Decay or Stila do the fun, funky designs. The people who’d buy Dior want something “normal”. It’s the same reason I boycotted the Guerlain Crazy Paris Meteorites pearls – the packaging drove me crazy!
But I had taken these pictures in my phone (hence the photo quality) and I was asked what I thought of the Cosmopolite collection, so I decided to do a short overview, and show you the 1 item I picked up. Yeah, as much as I turned my nose up at this collection, there was still 1 item that suckered me in LOL! 😀
