Dior Autumn 2009

Here is a photo of the Christian Dior Autumn 2009 collection display with the incredibly wearable JazzClub Total Eyelook Makeup Clutch palettes. Silky and richly pigmented, Dior Beauty’s eyeshadows for fall are a sheer joy to swatch. A far cry from the chalky and sheer colours of the past, Dior’s recent shadow offerings have a luxurious, velvety texture and an ultra-smooth quality that makes them a dream to blend.


The smokey eye-lover with a penchant for taupes and browns (me, me!) will adore JazzClub Total Eyelook Makeup Clutch in Smoky Jazz 001 (S$96). Its jazz club reference is reminiscent of the structured smokes of the 1930s and I like that it contains brow and liner shades, giving true meaning to its ‘total eyelook’ moniker.

My weakness for pewters automatically drew me to 1 Couleur Ultra Smooth High Impact Eyeshadow in Argentic* 056 (S$42), a complex grey with hints of blue, purple, silver and a gentle kiss of warmth – I spy a fine smattering of soft gold shimmer – that never undermines its cool tones. Its iridescence and subdued shade is beautifully offset by 1 Couleur in Crystal White 006, a sparkly snow white that has a lovely clean gleam.

I did not have time to take photos of the rest of the collection but I hope this whets your Dior fall appetite! ;)


* Most likely a derivative of argent, which means money in French. What an apt name for such a complex shade – it certainly contains hues that are found in money; more notably coins.

    You know I'm not typically a Dior girl, but that solo eyeshadow is gorgeous! I have to check that out.

    I'm not so sure about a brow product in an eye palette personally; how can it suit everyone? If it's the second colour from the left then they have gone for the most universal cool taupe, I suppose.

    Great post, stunning pictures!

    Hello Ai,

    Waiting is fine, as long as you make an advanced reservation with the counters. ;) What do you plan to get?

    *WAVES* Grace London!

    You NEED that eyeshadow, trust me. And while you're at it, the palette is right up your alley too. :P

    That brow colour suits me *giggles* but I know what you mean. It's a bit like MAC Coquette, a pretty safe colour for most Asians (and Caucasians?).

    Thank you for dropping by! :)
