I am sure many of you have seen images of Dior’s summer 2009 makeup collection. Here is a quick look at the items.

- Dior Cristal Shine (above, limited edition)

- 5-Color Iridescent Eyeshadow (259, 859 (limited edition))

- Dior Bronze Harmonie de Blush (001, 002, limited editions)



- Diorskin Shimmer Powder (004, limited edition)



- Dior Bronze Original Tan (002, limited edition)



- Crayon Eyeliner (033, limited edition)

- Dior Addict High Shine (154, 374 (limited edition), 864)



- Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss Reflect (377 (limited edition), 647)



- DiorKiss (541 (limited edition), 851)

- Dior Addict Lip Glow SPF 10



- Dior Vernis (681, 741, limited editions)

The star item, Dior Crystal Shine, has a industrial-chic feel. It is not really calling out to me, so I think my Boots points are safe for the moment…

i got my cristal shine just this weekend, it’s already started to hit counters here in canada! i really love it, the white and silver work well together with the crystal accents.

i’m a little bit underwhelmed with the colors. everything is split up here in north america, with some accounts receiving certain colors and other doors receiving others. For example, shoppers received the blue 5-col eyeshadow, one of the addict lip glosses, and a set of nail polish and kiss gloss that wasn’t pictured here. there are actually three of each!

oh and i wanted to add, the harmonies are permanent, they are replacing the old 4-gradient format ones (which i personally preferred)

Oh pretty! I had seen the blushes and e/s palettes, but not the rest of the collection. I’ll have to go see the glosses and high shines in person now. =)

Well, this one doesn’t do a thing for me. Still, I’m curious. What’s that addict lip glow? Is it a balm? Or lip hilighter? (If that ever exist?)

Hi Hightea_xx,

Thank you very much for letting me know!

It appears that different countries are carrying different products, which, as we know, is the usual case with Dior. Also, occasionally, some items are limited editions in some countries and not others.

(Most of the time, the UK is getting very similar items as those sold in Asia.)

I haven’t seen the collection in person, and I am certainly looking forward to it. I probably wouldn’t pick up anything from this collection, but I would love to have a look at Cristal Shine and the eyeshadow palettes.

Thank you for stopping by again! :)

Hi Catherine,

I haven’t seen any of the collection yet, and I am definitely looking forward to it! :)

Thank you very much for stopping by! :)

Hi Vichaya,

I am thinking that Addict Lip Glow is mainly a lip balm that probably works as a primer for the lipsticks.

Thank you very much for posting your comment again! :)

I really want the eyeshadow quint 859! But apparently Holt Renfrew in Canada does not carry it. I will have to call around to ask. Does anyone know if that quint is only available outside of North America?

Hello PJ Thanks so much for explaining the Biteki gifts to me :0) I really appreciate your help. I also consulted your whitening posts as suggested.
I am up burning the midnight oil working on a project. Came to get my touchofblusher fix and wind down. Oh what lovely goodies Dior is offering! I am in love with the blue eye shadow palette. Everything is so tempting though. I have just received the Estee Lauder Jasmine palette I mentioned, for Easter I was so thrilled! I loved the turquiose and blue and white in it especially. The thing I love about Dior is you get 5 shades and they are such lovely textures. Is that a silver eye pencil I spy or am I dreaming? Thanks for sharing these pics and for your other great reviews. Hugs Chloe X

i saw a zipped “couture palette” on other blogs. the case looks really nice.

else…. the Cristal Shine looks rather cheap IMO. the earlier Star products had more “WOW” to them, like the gorgeous Gourmette bracelet. this is kinda a let down.

Wonderful! I think I might be in love with that hot pink nail polish

i’ve got harmonie blush in rose. love it! i wasn’t aware there is 004 Diorskin Shimmer Powder. I love all the 3 previous ones but I swapped Amber away as i prefer using my MUFE Compact Shine On 05 Amber. I love the other two though.

I need to check this #4 out to see if I need it as I have the rose version.

I’m waiting most impatiently for it to hit our shores. Soon soon… :)

Hello PJ,
I just went on the French Dior Beauty website and they feature a new in-between collection of mostly lip and nail color called “Lilas Addict”… but on the ad picture there is also a L-I-L-A-C eye palette I hadn’t seen before. I’m sure you will like to look into that. (^_^)

Dear PJ,
It’s ok. I’m a fan of your website. You don’t have to thank me for dropping my comment here. Instead, I should thank you for writing this wonderful blog.

Hi Sheila,

I am not really sure. It seems that 859 is available in Asia but not in the US. I am thinking it could be available in Europe.

Hopefully someone from Canada that is reading your comment might know more about the availability in Canada.

Thank you very much for your question! :)

Hi Chloe,

You are very welcome. :)

Yes, I believe it is a silver eyeliner. :) I agree with you that the texture of Dior’s eyeshadows is generally very good. At the moment I only have one Dior eye palette, but I have been tempted to pick up a second one many times.

The Jasmine Garden palette looks very lovely. The colors look so fresh and spring-like. (I think the Orchid Garden palette looks pretty good too.)

Thank you for posting your thoughts again! :)

Hi Q,

I have seen images of the zipped palette as well. It looks quite nice, and I am looking forward to seeing it in person.

I agree with you on the Cristal Shine. It doesn’t really wow me, and I don’t think I will be tempted to get it when I see it in person.

Thank you for stopping by! :)

Hi Elvira,

I do like the fact that there are some nice cool-toned shades in this collection. I am certainly looking forward to seeing the items in person soon.

Thank you for stopping by again! :)

Hi Jojoba,

The rose Harmonie Blush looks quite stunning, but I think I will need to see it in person to know whether it will suit my complexion. I am looking forward to seeing the Shimmer Powder in 004 too. The various tones look quite appealing to me.

Thank you for posting your comment again! :)

Hi Paris,

Me too. I think we should get to see at least some of the items very soon here in the UK.

Thank you for stopping by again! :)

Hi CedriCeCCentriC,

You certainly know what I like…:)

Thank you very much for bringing my attention to the Lilas Addict collection. I really like the ad image of it. Most of the items look so pretty. I think the lilac palette is the 129 Pearly Lilac that I have seen images of on some other blogs, but it actually looks a lot better on this ad image.

I have put up a short post on this collection. Thank you very much again for letting me know about it! :)

very nice post!
The summer collection arrived last week here in Malaysia and i absolutely love it!!!

5-Color Iridescent Eyeshadow (259, 859 (limited edition)) <—is much more nicer in real life!

The price here for the 5color eyeshadow is RM187 which is about US$52,is it any cheaper there?

Hi Alexis,

Dior’s summer 2009 collection arrived in the UK a couple of weeks ago too. I checked out the items the other day, and most of them do look very gorgeous.

The 5-Color Iridescent Eyeshadow is 34.5 GBP in the UK, which is currently about 54.9 USD. So the price is similar here, which is mainly because GBP is quite weak at the moment. (Usually, beauty items from non-UK brands are relatively quite expensive in the UK.)

Thank you for posting your comment! :)
