Dior Spring Collection 2012 – Garden Party Color Collection

January 6th, 2012

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Welcome to Fab Over Forty Dior Spring Collection 2012 – Garden Party Color Collection

I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends…

Dior Spring Collection 2012 called Garden Party Color Collection is just hitting stores this January.  It’s hard to believe that Spring Collections are here when the calendar just flipped over to 2012, but they are here. This Dior collection is inspired by the fantastic Granville garden of Christian Dior. Located on the cliffs of Normandy, the elements of strong winds seemed unsuitable for a garden, but his creative strength and relentless hard work defied nature. Today one can still admire the garden in bloom and in particular, the fantastic rose garden planted by Christian Dior’s own hands. It sounds lovely and wouldn’t it be fun to have a party there, like he used to host many years ago!

 

 

To me the star piece in the collection is the pale pink minaudiere.  For Holiday 2010 they created a minaudiere similar to this in black and with a ball clasp, now for spring 2012 it is a pale pink version and a double rose clasp adorns the top instead. Inside you will find a full mirror on the one side and three eye shadows, a Lip Maximizer and an Ultra Gloss on the other.  The lip products are protected by a silver flap door so no shadow residue will get in.  It’s available in two color families – the grey shades (top) are a Nordstrom and Dior.com exclusive and the brown/pink one (bottom) is more widely available. $75 each

There are also 2 limited edition 5 Couleur Palettes that are embossed with roses on a tulle pattern $59 ea. The one, Garden Pastels may be difficult for most women over 40 to attempt to wear, but the other, Garden Roses may have a larger audience.  Both are fresh and spring-like in their own way.

In addition to the variety of shadows for the collection, there is a few new lipsticks and glosses and a nail lacquer duo that is rose scented and said to last up to 4 days after applying! $23 ea.

 

 

 

Waterlily #504 and Forget-Me-Not #694

 

 

 

 

 

The lipsticks are lovely and soft spring shades.   The two lipsticks are in the Rouge Dior formula – a creamy longer wearing formula than Dior Addict. $32 ea.  The Ultra Gloss is available in Pretty Rose #452 and Party Lilac #396.  The rose is more of a coral rose and the lilac shade is a nice sheer shade.

And lastly, two other additions to the extensive Spring 2012 Collection are the new 3 Couleur palettes. I have not seen these in person yet, but the Smoky Roses (top) shades were highly missed when they released the 3 Couleur palettes last fall.  The Smoky Garden trio (below) is an online Dior.com exclusive.  I hope these are actually part of the permanent collection, but I have not heard for sure.

 

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this collection.  I think most of it is wearable for women over 40, and it’s soft, pretty, and fresh.  I suspect the minaudiere will be popular and one of the first items in the collection to sell out quickly.

DiorShow Artists Skincare Tips for Women over 40

October 21st, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

With a special offer for Fab Over 40 readers!

The fabulous DiorShow artists put together a list of skincare and makeup tips that are targeted towards women over 40.   Today the focus is on skincare and their advice and tomorrow we will discuss their makeup and beauty advice.

  1. As women mature, the desire is to keep skin looking healthy and radiant and to slow the signs of aging.  Keeping skin protected and moisturized is a MUST.  Using a serum is essential.  Serums penetrate more deeply into the skin where damage occurs and have a higher concentration of active ingredients.  High potency anti-oxidants and a moisturizer that replenishes and retains moisture in the skin will give a youthful glow.  An exceptional skincare treatment, like Dior’s L’or de Vie is a perfect choice.  Regenerative molecules from the legendary Chateau d’Yquem infuse this luxurious line of products and protect skin with the most powerful anti-oxidants available without a prescription, while correcting visible signs of again and strengthening skin from within.
  2. A new treatment innovation is the concept of detoxifying the skin cells.  Each day, billions of toxins build up in the cells and without toxin elimination, no skincare treatment can be completely effective.  Dior’s Capture Totale One Essential is the ‘daily detox’ for your skin.  Used before you usual skincare, it boots the effectiveness of ANY skincare product that follows.  The Dior exclusive technology, Detoxinyl, recycles toxins and turns them into proteins which the skin uses as a building block to repair.  The skin needs proteins to be healthy!
  3. Since mature skin tends to lose luster and look dry, radiance is key to maintaining a nice youthful appearance. Using Capture Totale Radiance Enchancer before foundation or even mixing a few pumps INTO your foundation, give a brighter look.  It also helps to keep the base from settling into lines and wrinkles.
Because I was involved in the Beauty Bash in NYC a few weeks back and I mentioned some of my favorite Dior products, Dior is kind enough to offer all Fab Over Forty readers an offer from their website www.dior.com  Any purchase on Dior.com you will receive a free mini mascara!   Just enter BEAUTYBASH2011 at checkout to get your souvenir.  This offer is good thru October 2011.  Also, remember they offer free shipping with a $50 or more purchase and you get your DiorDiva points!

Dior Mise en Dior for Pinball

A lot of you enjoyed Dior’s previous “video game”, which focused on makeup, but I thought I’d share this one. It’s cute :) It would have been even cuter if it involved makeup.
