October sees the launch of Dior’s new makeup collection, designed for the festive season of 2016. Dior Splendor Collection for Holiday 2016 is a range of luxurious, limited edition offerings encased in gold and decorated with a delicate sequin motif, evocative of Dior’s fashion collection for winter 2016. A significant part of the Dior Splendor Collection is already available for purchase at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, while the rest of it arrives in October 2016. In addition to new shades and color harmonies of Dior’s emblematic eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks, and nail colors, Dior presents a couple of quite unique offerings, such as the gold colored lipstick, and a brand new matte liquid color for lips and eyes. Let’s take a closer look!
Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette for holiday 2016 is available in two charming color variations. The surface of the luxurious pressed powder eyeshadows is decorated with the sequin motif, inspired by Dior’s seasonal Haute Couture creations. The soft, almost creamy texture of these eyeshadows seamlessly blends into the lids to sculpt and accentuate your eyes with pearly light, yet highly pigmented eyeshadow. As always, Dior eyeshadows come with a promise of a smooth, velvety texture with no powdery effect. Each of the palettes retails at $63.00
Dior Diorific Lips in Golden 006 is an exclusive, limited edition lipstick, housed in a gold-colored collector case. This golden lipstick features a unique, sophisticated formula with a radiant, warm, long-lasting matte finish. - $38.00
Dior Diorific Matte Lipstick arrives in four limited edition shades. The lipstick is formulated with extremely soft and velvety micronized silicon powder.

Diorific Matte Lipstick is priced at $38.00 per shade.
