Whoa, what’s this? A holiday collection that actually looks like a holiday collection?!?
Dior decided not to break with tradition while they broke away from the pack with a classic holiday color palette in shades of gold, black, gray and pink. They must have figured they’d leave the springy holiday stuff to their luxury counterparts (Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana) this time around.
Four of the nine items in the collection (available now in stores) are palettes. Palettes have been playing a big role this season, and it looks like they also were over at Dior HQ.
Here’s a quick look at both of the eyeshadow quints and a pricing/availability breakdown of everything in the release:

Detailed reviews and FOTDs coming soon, but what’s your take on the overall color palette? Do you like that Dior decided to go a traditional route?
