Dior Makeup Croisette Summer 2012 Color Collection

“On vacation, you can wear all the colorful and casual clothing that you like, but you must always be elegant,” said Christian Dior. Inspired by the art de vivre of the French Riviera, the Dior Croisette Collection combines the peace of the French countryside with the splendour of Saint Tropez.

These locations have always been a prolific source of inspiration for Christian Dior. From Dior’s first swimsuit collections and seaside fashion creations in the Fifties to the current Cruise Collections, the French Riviera also embodies the brand’s most daring, fresh and colorful lines today.


Inspiration: The Croisette

Between the shimmering turquoise of the Mediterranean Sea and the sparkling gold of the sand, through soft coral and bikini pink, the Croisette reveals all its elegance and optimism in sunny and aquatic-inspired shades. The skin is warmed up and illuminated in a natural glow effect, while the eyes are dressed up with luminescent sunny shades or fresh azure blues. The lips are colorful and subtly sparkling while the nails complete the look with coral and blue shades inspired by the most glamorous emblems of the French Riviera.


NEW Dior 5-Couleurs – Croisette Edition

Embossed with sunburst pleats, these palettes are inspired by the sophisticated “pleating” technique used on the fabric of Dior dresses. The Swimming Pool harmony recalls a dive into the Mediterranean while the Aurora harmony is a warm collection inspired by a day spent sunbathing on the beach. 5-Couleurs Eyeshadow in Swimming Pool #224 (Not Sephora) and Aurora #654.

    The eyeliner is brand new. I have never seen DIORSHOW having an eyeliner that looked so sleek and delicate.

    • admin March 19, 2012 at 6:05 AM

      The eyeliner isn’t new. Anyways, DIORSHOW comes out with the innovative things all the time. Like the heated lash curler.

      Don’t know about the bronzer if it is coming to the US or not.

    St. Tropez is a new nail polish? I thought it came out last summer.

    • admin March 19, 2012 at 6:06 AM

      It came out last year but re-released again I think. Last year only had a few bottles which were hard to get.
