Dior Summer 2012 Croisette Swatches

Dior is always the earliest to launch its seasonal makeup collections. This year's Croisette collection is inspired by the French Riviera and features a slew of sunny and aquatic-inspired shades.

The two eyeshadow quints #224 Swimming Pool and #654 Aurora did not appeal to me though. Swimming Pool is super sheer and pale. Aurora has much better payoff and textures but the orangy bronze combination is hard to pull off. The price of Dior's quints keep spiraling too. These two will retail at S$98 in Singapore.

The 1 Couleur Eye Gloss are more impressive, with a nice cooling texture that dries down to a translucent shimmery finish.

I also liked the four Dior Addict Ultra Glosses and three Dior Addict Lipsticks, all of which are very flattering and easy to wear.

Below are some quick swatches snapped with my phone camera.

Thank you for the review and swatches! I agree the eye glosses look beautiful!

I think I might need to pick up the Tan Eye Gloss but otherwise I'm feeling pretty safe on passing on Dior's collection - the orange quad is gorgeous but not something I feel like I could pull off! And it's very pricey to try. Thank you for the swatches!

Thanks for the immediate swatches! It's always refreshing to visit the makeup counter when a new collection is released! I wasn't won over with the eyeglosses, and it was funny that the SA here was talking about how new and innovative this is. Uhm... no, I think the Japanese did it a while ago! Are you picking anything up from this collection?

Hey Tracy,
I didn't buy anything yesterday as I don't want to pay the jacked up prices here in Switzerland. I may get an eye gloss or lipgloss when I go to France or London :)

Hey Justine,
The quints are so expensive now, they have to be really special to justify the price.

Hi Joolz,
You're welcome! :)

I have the eye glosses and just love them for me they are very new never owned anything like them. They are fun to play with you can use them over the eyeshadow for extra shimmer or under the eyehadow to intensify the colours !!
