Dior Lilas Collection

I chanced across this promotional booth for the Dior Lilas collection at Takashimaya department store today so I snapped some pics!

The Dior Iridescent quints retail for much cheaper at Changi Airport's dutyfree where they cost S$74.50 each, versus S$89 in the city.

The lipglosses in this collection are all shimmery glossy wonders that will flatter most skintones. But at a hefty S$38, I'll have to think about it some more!

The new Miss Dior Cherie L'Eau which has notes of orange essence, gardenia accord and white musks. I received a sample vial with my purchase at the Tangs Orchard counter. I found it to be much more refreshing, lighter and not as cloyingly sweet as Miss Dior Cherie.

Hi Lina,

The Lilas collection was available in the US but only at Neiman Marcus department store, according to what I read on other blogs and MakeupAlley.

Hi, is the Pearly Lilac eyeshadow available at the DFS Galleria at Scotts Road? Not sure if it is under the same management as the Changi Duty Free...

How does it compare to Kanebo's T'estimo Frame Impact Eyes in purple tones and other Japanese brand eyeshadows?

I love purples, but from the sound of it, the Dior eyeshadow is more of a more matte pearl sheen than a sparkly shimmer. Thanks for all your reviews, really informative and great pics too.

Someone reported in the Cozycot forums that they saw the Pearly Lilac palette at the DFS Galleria in Scotts Road so I believe you can get it there. It is under the same management as the DFS in Changi Airport.

The Pearly Lilac eyeshadow texture is more of a pearl shimmer and not really matte, but also not bling bling sparkly. It is not as shimmery as Testimo Frame Impact but there are more shades in the Pearly Lilac palette for one to play around with than the Testimo Frame Impact, so I would say the Pearly Lilac is more versatile.
