I can’t believe it! The Fall makeup collections are already here. I am so excited to be able to show you some pieces from the Dior Fall 2017 Metallics Collection. This collection is full of opulent colours in matte and metallic finishes. These collection is full on evening glamour. Sophisticated yet bold metals that are for the confident women unafraid of the spotlight.

The two 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes ($72 CAD) in the collection are both drop dead STUNNING. I am completely in love. These quints are bold and smokey in tones of warm browns or cool greys.

The Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 677 Hypnotize features two shimmery, shiny shades in taupe and gold, a centre shade of rich copper, and a deep matte brown with sparkles and a deep rich matte chocolate.

The Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 007 Magnetize featurse two shimmery, shiny shades of silver and platinum along with a centre shade of deep frosted grey along with a matte sooty charcoal with sparkle and a rich matte charcoal black.

The shiny, sparking shades at the top of the palettes have a slightly sheerer finish to give a glow to the eyes. They layer great over the other shadows or can be easily built up on their own over a primer or base. I don’t mean the pigmentation is poor by any means but it is not opaque. The centre shades in both palettes are absolutely mind blowing. They are so pigmented, smooth, and beautiful. The bottom two shades have great colour payoff and blend beautifully. If you love these colour offerings then these palettes are musts in my opinion. Gorgeous!

Also for the eyes are the new Dior Diorshow Metalizer Eyes and Lips ($32 CAD). These are cream eyeshadows marketed for eyes and lips. I was surprised how absolutely exquisite these are. Intense metallic shine and opaque pigmentation. They are intensely pigmented and creamy yet feel very lightweight. You can also dab a tiny amount on the lips to transform a lipstick into a metallic finish or use alone for a really dramatic effect. These offer up to 12 hours of budge-proof wear and dry completely down. I have Copper Power and Bronze Tension. Copper Power is going to be my new bestie this summer. I can tell already! Plum Reflection sounds like one I should check out.

The five shades are:

  • 068 Silver Shock
  • 528 Platine Fusion
  • 548 Copper Power
  • 678 Bronze Tension
  • 828 Pink Pulsion
  • 898 Plum Reflection

For lips there are five new Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick ($43 CAD) shades. The two I have are 999 Metallic which is a fiery metallic orangey red, and 781 Enigmatic a deep glossy wine red. Both are bold statement lips for me but I’m kinda diggin it!

The five new shades are:

  • 781 Enigmatic – wine red
  • 996 Eccentric – rosy brown
  • 999 Metallic – metallic orange red
  • 426 Sensual Matte – beige
  • 481 Hypnotic Matte – rosewood

These five lipstick shades pair beautifully with the five new Dior Rouge Dior Contour Lip Pencil ($36 CAD) shades. Shown is 948 Enigmatic. These beautiful, creamy and long wearing lip pencils come with a lip brush on the opposite end. Genius! The five new shades are:

  • 169 Grege
  • 223 Beige Lumiere
  • 593 Brown Fig
  • 948 Enigmatic
  • 758 Sophisticated Matte

For brows there is the Dior Diorshow Bold Brow Mascara ($34 CAD). This tinted brow gel has a mousse-serum formula enriched with vitamins E, B5, and B8 to help improve brow condition over time.

The three shades are:

  • 002 Dark (shown)
  • 011 Light
  • 021 Medium

There is one Dior Vernis ($33 CAD) nail colour in the collection called 612 Metallics (not shown). It is a powerful metallic grey.

    Thank you for posting the new Dior colors and the video. I appreciate some one a little older ( not a 20 something youtuber ) demonstrating the makeup. I have platinum hair and am fair like you. I alway look to you post under seriously Pale and now will look here. I bought the shadow in Hypnotize, the lipstick in Egnimatic and pencil. I also thought I would try the stick blush in Plum Shimmer and the Plum Reflection metallic eye for the outer eye corner and some over the lipstick. I purchased the nail polish in Mettalic. I always buy the whole look. LOL I have loved makeup since I was a teenager and at 59 I still love it!

    • Thanks Marsha! I’m happy you found me here! 😀 Plum Shimmer and Plum Reflection sound sooooo good! I need to check them out! And I love getting whole new looks together. It just feels so extra special. <3

        Christa, I am 59 and I find most women my age are not into changing up their makeup, or don’t wear it. I really enjoy your blogs. I am so glad when I google makeup that your page always pops up right away. I have so much makeup, its ridiculous. ?

    The Hyptonize palette is so pretty! But I’m wondering if the Magnetize palette would look better on fair skin, even though I prefer Hypnotize…
