Dior Rose Collection Eyes & Lips Palette

Dior Rose Collection Eyes & Lips PaletteThe full name of this palette, if the box is to be believed, is a proper mouthful: Dior Rose Collection Eyes & Lips Palette Healthy Glow Harmony. This little beauty is part of Dior’s Collection Voyage, the brand’s range of travel-exclusive products, and I purchased this palette at Singapore Changi airport en route to Thailand.

Like many of you out there, I’m not the biggest fan of mixed palettes, particularly those with powder/cream products in the same place. However, as someone who travels a lot I do recognise the practical reasons behind having everything in one set as that reduces the space and weight requirements of your beauty kit.

Thankfully, the quality of the eyeshadows in this palette follows the usual high Dior standard of the house’s popular quints. The first shade is a glittery white and the least smooth of the four in terms of texture, but it’s far from chalky. The other three shades (a shimmery pink and two gorgeous taupes of different intensities) have all the buttery goodness of the brand’s iridescent eyeshadows.

The lip shades include a clear lip balm (shade 069), two Dior Addict glosses with silvery glitter that isn’t gritty (183 and 559) and a Dior Addict lipstick (674). The palette also comes with two double-ended applicators, one for the eyes and one for the lips.

The case features Dior’s cannage pattern, like many other travel-retail products. This palette’s price varies according to the duty-free location (airports and airlines both carry it), but I paid around £35 (roughly $56) for it.

Dior Cannage Color Collection Lip

without comments

Dior Cannage Color Collection LipIf you go back to my earliest posts on this blog you might notice the beauty that is the Dior Cannage Color Collection Eye palette. What I failed to mention then was that Dior also launched another palette dedicated to the lips around the same time.

The Dior Cannage Color Collection Lip features eight shades for lips that, according to the company, “combine to form a lip colour palette intended to fulfill your every desire”. It comes in a red vinyl case decorated with the brand’s emblematic canework pattern that defines the company’s Cannage handbags, and you can only find this little beauty in duty-free shops or inflight catalogues around the world.

The palette retails for $49 in travel-retail and is widely available – I saw it last week at a couple of different locations in Europe, for example. Click on the image to see it in all its glory.
