(Dior Diorissime Palette for fall 2007)

(with Dior Detective Chic palette from fall 2006)

In recent years, Dior has successfully merged fashion and cosmetics by bringing fashion elements into the design of seasonal limited-edition items. The Diorissime palette for fall 2007 is yet another example.

The design of the beautiful case is based on both the classic and the current Dior designs:

The one I got is 002 Seduction Drama:

(after some testing…)

From left:

deep copper, medium grey, medium brown, sheer light beige
(All have metallic shine.)
Lip Colors
sheer frosty pink with subtle green shimmer
pale blue-tinted gloss with minimal shimmer

I went for 002 (Seduction Drama) instead of 001 (Daylight Madonna) because I wanted to have a couple of darker neutrals to play with and because I am a fan of blue-tinted lip glosses. (But 001 Daylight Madonna does feature some cute pink shades as well as soft neutrals.)

As with all the Dior eyeshadows, the texture is so smooth and blending is a dream.

I was worried that the deep copper shade (on the very left) would be too warm for me as an eyeliner shade. But, blended with the grey, it becomes a very natural brown.

The grey shade is a great addition to my eyeshadow colors. It goes well with my very dark eyes and lashes, not to mention it is a trendy color for fall 2007. (Replace this with the medium brown next to it for the classic neutral look.)

The frosty pink lip color has a texture between a very creamy lipstick and a syrupy lip gloss. Very glossy and shimmery. The blue-tinted gloss goes on completely sheer. It feels like a very moisturizing lip balm which happens to have a lot of shine.

While 001 Daylight Madonna is more for daytime, 002 Seduction Drama is definitely for evening glamor.

I have been loving most of Dior’s seasonal limited-edition items. This one will also be joyfully displayed on my dresser top!

LOVE the look of this palette! When I saw it on Sephora I thought it was genius to merge a handbag and makeup palette.

Hello Shannon!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!

I was also instantly attracted to this palette when I first saw it. It is so pretty.

I love the palette from last year as well, as it is based on the design of the Detective bag, which I think is the most beautiful Dior bag. But this one is just as great.

I like the Dior Pink Leather Cannage Bag.. Lovely! Not too pink yet sweet!


PJ Monday, August 27, 2007

Hello Iry!

I do like everything pink (well almost…). Between these two bags, I think I like the Lady Dior bag better, as I usually prefer more structured designs…:)

Thank you for stopping by!

Oh that looks great!!! I love everything Dior, and just splurged on some “costume” earrings and a necklace by them, but now I want that makeup palette too!


A-Mused Monday, August 27, 2007

Oh my gosh! I can’t wait to get mine PJ!!!!!

Looks great!


did this come in the silver box or in the graphic box?


PJ Monday, August 27, 2007

Hello Jeni again!

Thank you for your comment!

I love some of Dior’s costume jewelry pieces as well. They are very feminine and pretty. (I like going to Dior’s on-line boutique to check out their constant updates.)

This palette is definitely worth a look in the store if you like Dior’s designs!

By the way, your blog has been taking shape very nicely! :)


PJ Monday, August 27, 2007

Hello A-Mused,

It comes in a silver box, with some cardboard wrapping inside. It doesn’t have a pouch or a velvety protective sleeve.

Look forward to reading your review later!

Thanks for the comment! :)


A-Mused Tuesday, August 28, 2007

ooo great! I lurve the silver boxes weeeeeeeee!

I can’t wait to try it!

I adore how free you are! It’ll take alot for me to actually use it! My hands will quiver if I put an applicator anywhere near it ;)

It’s going in the beauty vault and I’ll take it out on occasion to stroke it lol!

I need to be more brave and dig right in!


PJ Tuesday, August 28, 2007

Hello A-Mused again!

Well…no, I am not free at all.

Some other Dior limited-edition items, like the dice and the princess ring, are strictly collector’s pieces for me. Like you, I need to be careful when opening them so that my fingers don’t accidentally leave any mark…

But for bigger palettes, like this one and the Dior Detective palette, I am quite happy to dig right in…;)


A-Mused Tuesday, August 28, 2007


Ahhh *sigh* the drama of being cosmetic obsessed my dear friend! Whenever I take the dice out of the box I promptly shine them with a jewelry cloth before putting them back to remove any finger prints!

Ditto with my dior ID bracelet glosses.

oh lord!



PJ Wednesday, August 29, 2007

Hello A-Mused,

Yes…I think I’ve just admitted that there are things I buy that I simply don’t use…well, just a few of them…:)


karen, makeupandbeautyblog.com Wednesday, August 29, 2007

WOW! Super cute. I’m a sucker for the cute pink packaging.


PJ Thursday, August 30, 2007

Hello Karen,

Thank you for leaving a comment.

I am loving this pink packaging too. It is girlie but the design has a bit of edge as well…:)
