Dior Glowing Gardens

A lot of Dior packaging tends to be a bit samey but we are loving the new Spring collection Glowing Gardens.
 I'm not sure if it's the selection of colours or the cute floral pattern embossed in the palette and blush compact which is luring us in.

Dior's inspiration for this collection is a cliff side garden overlooking the sea filled with blossoming rosebuds, irises and orchids.
 There are two eye shadow palettes in this collection, each with 5 pans of colour.
 Each shade is embossed with a floral pattern and comes with two application brushes. The eye shadow palette is £43.50.

The palette we have in 451 Rose Garden contains a beautiful plum/charcoal and a soft taupe. The pale lemon and pistachio green are not as vibrant as you may expect. They give a sheer wash of highlighter which really lifts the skin tone around the eye and adds something a little different. Works well on all skin tones and the highlighters look beautiful on a darker skin tone. Softly radiant and easy to blend.

Also for the eyes there is a waterproof colour and contour stick. This is a duel ended product. One end is a shimmering cream eye shadow and the other is a cream liner in a complimentary colour. There are 5 shades to choose from. We have the shade in 157 Iris. This is a beautiful violet shot with baby pink and silver shimmer. The liner attached is a smoky navy. Once applied, this blends well but does set so don't hang about before you blend it. It's seriously long wearing and would be a great product to use for holidays or during the humid Summer months. The colour and contour is £25.50, pro liner is £20.00 and the addict mascara is £22.00.

157 Iris colour and Contour

The waterproof liner has a creamy application in a purple taupe. Creates a natural line which lasts really well. Makes a nice spring alternative to black.
 The mascara is in the same taupe shade with a platinum sheen. Probably wouldn't wear all of these together but individually as accent colours would be nice.
For the cheeks there is a beautiful coral pink with the same floral pattern and mini blush brush. Adds a soft fresh flush of pink to the cheeks. The blush compact is £32.50.

 Two highlighters in this collection in Glowing pink and Glowing nude.
 We have the glowing pink compact which provides a pink pearl highlight. Isn't it gorgeous!!! This highlighter is £40.00.

There are a ton of lip products for you to check out but we particularly like the glosses. A tropical pink and soft apricot. Great everyday colours for the spring/summer. The glosses are £26.50.

This collection is available from 20th January from all Dior locations and online.


  1. would have loves to have seen a stronger yellow/pistache.... there just never seems to be anything with a pay off worth the investment... its a fabulous option for inner corners(duct) middle of the lid, brow bone, or warming up a cool graphic smoked eye... but no!

  2. Stunning palette, Dior always has a way to my heart!!
