I stopped by my local Boots to see Dior’s Holiday 2009 collection yesterday, and I was very pleased that the Cristal Boréal Crystal Gloss Jewel did look lovely in person. I didn’t have enough Boots points to use on Lady Dior back in spring, but I did this time with Cristal Boréal. (I got the one in 251 Pink Crystal.)

I haven’t opened it yet (I am trying to savor the anticipation), but I will be bringing you my thoughts on it and some of the other items in the collection within the next couple of weeks.

I have this too, in the same colour as you!! I am so in love with it, I don't know how anyone can NOT be in love with it. It's so shiny and pretty.

I ripped the wrapping apart the moment I received it in the mail, and it just made me so happy the first time I saw all of the shiny-ness. Total love~

Can you tell me how much it costs? I can't find it on any website (boots, debenhams, etc.) Thanks!

I just bought mine today and I did the exact thing as Sheila! I was so excited! When I went home to try it on, the pink gloss did disappoint a little bit. It feels like a lip balm but not as moisturising. There's not much shine or colour but there is a subtle sheen. I still love the pendant though .. can't wait to wear it out and about!

Hi Sheila,

I have opened it and I am loving it too. I particularly like the depth of the largest crystal.

I will talk more about it in my review later on. :)

Thank you very much for your comment! :)

Hi Anitacska,

No problem. It retails for 55 pounds in the UK.

Thank you very much for your question! :)

Hi Jasmine,

Yes, it appears to be quite sheer when I swatched it at the counter. But I do like the soft and subtle sheen. The pendant itself certainly looks gorgeous. :)

Thank you for your comment! :)
