Dior Diorific Golden Shock Illuminating Pressed Powder 001 Gold Shock Holiday 2014 Base Makeup 1

I have always liked the golden curvy bottles and cases of Dior‘s Diorific items, so it has been nice to see new Diorific items for the holiday seasons in 2012, 2013 and 2014. For holiday 2014, Dior released Diorific Golden Shock Illuminating Pressed Powder. It is fairly similar to Perfumed Illuminating Powder for holiday 2013, but I did decide to get it after getting the one from last year.

Dior will release an exclusive makeup collection to mark the opening of Dior Perfume & Beauty Omotesando Boutique in Tokyo. The limited-edition Omotesando Collection will be exclusive to the boutique, which will open at Omotesando Hills (a shopping complex) on Omotesando on October 9th.

The collection includes the Fleurs de Vent blusher, a 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palette and two Rouge Dior lipsticks. Inspired by windmills, the star of the collection is the gorgeous Fleurs de Vent, with the four letters of “Dior” stylishly and beautifully arranged. (It is simply too pretty to be used!)

There is something quite Japanese about Bobbi Brown’s Surf & Sand Eye Palettes for summer 2014. Japanese beauty lines, such as Lunasol, often release eyeshadow palettes with warm neutrals and those with combinations of neutrals and greens/blues for summer, and the Surf & Sand Eye Palettes remind me of them.
