Glittery and sparkling gold, what else can you want from a holiday collection as charming as Dior’s? Nothing really, but Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, is still out to impress. This season, he debuts the Dior‘s ‘Golden Nights’ Holiday 2020 Collection, where the typical dazzling looks reference major rock ‘n’ roll vibes.
Glammed up eyes, graphic placements, and a more-is-more red lip in 999 to match, Gwen Stefani would be pleased. “Golden Nights puts a twist on the holiday classics,” he says. “I thought of black and gold, of course, but also the graphic elements that evoke this festive season, as well as snowflakes, through a set of chic and festive crystals.”
We’ve written a fair bit about this year’s festive makeup, and yet, there’s nothing quite like seeing all the limited edition sets and pieces in person — as we got to do during Dior’s annual Christmas soirée, the socially-distanced edition, at the presidential suite of Raffles Hotel. And my, they are magnificent. With gold and black, glitter, and snowflake motifs embossed on eye palettes and lipstick bullets, there’s something you’ll definitely want right here. The gold tones seem quite similar to the feel of Dior Backstage’s holiday series, though the range here is, of course, much wider, with lipsticks, eye palettes, a blush, and even nail polishes.
Top of the list is the Rouge Dior Couture Collection Coffret, of 5 Rouge Dior lipsticks in their bestselling shades, now stamped with delicate snowflakes right onto the bullet for a mesmerising effect — this also comes in a gold-and-black case that can easily double up as a clutch for evening events.
Then, there are two versions of the 5 Couleurs Couture Golden Nights eye palette, both imprinted with a poetic snowflake pattern, and in harmonious shades of either gold and copper, or the dark tones of black and platinum silver. This season’s Diorific Golden Nights lipsticks also come coated in glittery snowflakes for a sparkly finish, in shades of shimmery red, glittery rose, dazzling nude, and a matte dark red sparkle.
Head down to a Dior boutique during this festive period, and you’ll even get to personalise some of your favourite Dior items. You may opt to engrave your initials onto a bottle of the J’adore fragrance, or prepare a gift for your loved ones in exclusive Dior pouches featuring their embroidered initials. Christmas, we’re ready.
