Dior Swatches of all lipsticks, lip glosses and eye shadow quads from Golden Shock Collection for Holiday 2014

Dior has just released the holiday collection, Golden Shock. The collection has the vintage packaging that brand is using for the last three years. I have picked up the nail polishes for my collection and swatched and compared them for you in my last post. Today I would like to share the swatches I took at the counter for you since it haven't seen many lipstick swatches online, I think it may help. 



Dior Counter, Golden Shock Collection for Holiday 2014

Diorific Vernis #001 Golden Shock, #022 Mirror, #241 Gold Equinoxe, #762 Shock and #990 Smoky from Dior Golden Shock Holiday 2014 Collection, Review, Swatch & Comparison

Dior Holiday Collection Golden Shock is now available in Germany and I believe it started popping up at other countries as well. I went to the counter to play with the items and take a few photos. Since I got a few unpleasant experience with my blind 5 Couleurs orders in terms of linear frosty finish (Femme-Fleur) and panda eye creating fall out (Pied-de-Poule), I don't thrust buying the new eye shadow formula from Dior without touching it. So my intention was to swatch and take a few photos for you but instead ended up being ditched by a very unfriendly SA at the counter in Breuninger, but... That is a story for the swatch post. 

Today I would like to show you the nail polishes from Golden Shock Collection which really shocked me, why? Keep reading...

Chanel Camélia de Plumes Highlighting Powder for Plumes Précieuses Holiday 2014 Collection, Swatch, Review, Comparison & FOTD

It must be the destiny of beauty bloggers to wear fall lipsticks in summer, put on pastel springy eye shadows in winter and walk around with golden sparkles in fall. As Chanel Camélia de Plumes goes, I am not complaining a bit, because it is the most gorgeous highlighter for each season which I would like to share with you today.

Estée Lauder Modern Muse Chic Eau de Parfum, Photos & Review

“Most people assume that a muse is a creature of perfect beauty, poise and grace. 
Like the creatures from Greek mythology. 
They're wrong. 

In fact, there should be a marked absence of perfection in a muse
--a gaping hole between what she is and what she might be. 

The ideal muse is a woman whose rough edges and contradictions drive you to fill in the blanks of her character. 
She is the irritant to your creativity. A remarkable possibility, waiting to be formed.” 

by Kathleen Tessaro from her book "The Perfume Collector"

These days I am trying to catch a deadline and nevertheless keep up with the blog. The things which lift my spirit are nail polishes and perfumes since I sometimes skip make-up in the mornings. Last week I have enjoyed the new Dior nail polishes which were released with their Dior Baumes in the beginning of September. I would like to share some swatches and my thoughts with you.
