Objects of desire: The Dior Splendor holiday collection
The couture spirit
Cheering in the festive season with sumptuous grandeur is the house of Dior as they throw a beauty fête in the form of a festive collection spun from wonder and dazzle aptly named Splendor. Envisioned by Dior makeup's creative and image director, Peter Philips, as a panorama of timeless femininity inspired by the artistic craft of the maison's ateliers, the collection is glitter and sequins speckled across rich jewel hues.
Lips are given a siren's pout with the new Diorific Matte Fluid lacquers that combines intense pigmentation with velvety comfort in a soft and powdery matte finish, housed in a luxe bottle with a precise applicator tip for bold swipes of kissable colour. The iconic Diorific Lipstick also gets a reinvention with five rich festive shades from gleaming gold to a lush red that'll sculpt the ultimate designer lip look.
Equally mesmerising are the eyes, touched by a soft smokiness with the 5 Couleur palettes curated in warm shades glided with a gold patina and gorgeously embossed with sequin motifs — how cool are these? From a mysterious bold eye to a luminous wash of colour, Dior highlights the beauty of the festive lights in your very gaze.
And no glamourous glow is complete without perfected skin made possible with the Nectar de Teint Dior Prestige foundation to provide a supple and plumped complexion that radiates a satin freshness. A look that's utterly feminine and liberatingly modern, the Splendor collection tops off your ensemble with a quintet of statement nail enamels in pearlised and sequined textures that truly toast to the season of celebration.
The Splendor holiday collection is available at all Dior counters from 27 October, from $42-$125
