I’m Electrified by the Dior Electric Tropics Collection and Can’t Wait for Summer

Dior Electric Tropics for Summer 2011

Ono! I can practically taste the rainbow shave ice already. Dior’s new Electric Tropics Collection has me thinking about Hawaii, and like the islands themselves, the 13-piece release for eyes, lips, cheeks and nails is a study in contrasts — as in sun-kissed skin behind bright neon nails and lip colors.


Below is the full list of products, but here are a few things currently catching my eye…

  • Dior Vernis Electric Tropics Nail Duos ($26 each) — To ramp up the shine of these florescent shades, Dior mixed in an ultra-shiny top coat, and it gives nails painted with these polishes a mirror-like effect.
  • Dior Addict Crystal Glosses ($27 each) — Available in four shades with different finishes and levels of opacity. Dior packed these with something they call a “polymer gel,” which gives them a volumizing, hydrating texture (oddly, they compare it to vinyl).
  • Diorskin Healthy Glow Powders ($46 each) — Isn’t the woven print on these pans to die for? The shades in each compact are designed to be mixed together and applied to the face (and the cheeks!) for a healthy glow.

  1. Cool! I’ve been wanting the polish ever since I saw the first photo of it! However, the quints look a little boring… and very similar to each other.

    Ooh, that woven pattern on the powders is so, so pretty!

  5. Rae says:

    The woven pattern really is tdf – now here’s to hoping they swatch just as prettily come summer 😛

  6. I am dying for the first bronzer and the pink creme gloss! Gorgeous!! Nail polish is my thing but the orange isn’t for me 😀

  7. Bella says:

    I want it all! I would love to see pictures of the glow fluid too! Wonder if they will be similar to Giorgio Armani’s fluid sheers?

  8. Nina says:

    oh my goodness – that pattern is just so totally lovely!

  9. Reika says:

    omg..I’m also electrified..I want everything from this collection! sooo pretty. Thanks Karen for the information!

  10. Instant Karma (formerly L) says:

    Oooh, that first eyeshadow quint is gorgeous!

    I think I’m going to purchase some makeup. I broke my toe on Thursday and I need something to cheer me up, haha. I’m either on crutches or am hopping everywhere on one foot like an injured bunny rabbit. People stare at me like I have five heads or something, lol.

  11. the angel says:

    I Love dior. But just do not see anything special about this collection. I do like the woven pattern though.

  12. Lulle says:

    I sooooo want the polish !
    But the eyeshadow quints don’t look electric or tropical at all to me…

  13. saby says:

    I am glad I am not the only one who finds Dior booooring ! I think I might take a nap it made me sleepy hahahah

  14. Wendy says:

    The beauty powders are amazing, but i’ll be damned if I’m paying $46 each on them. that’s crazy. lol

  15. Paris B says:

    I love the look of the beauty powders but nothing much else of the collection unfortunately.

  16. Amee says:

    nice collection!!! me too electrified by this Dior collection 🙂

  17. Eva says:

    crap, I want everything o_o

  18. DalaLuz says:

    The Glo Powder looks awesome!!!!
    And how come Dior still puts spongeapplicators in their palettes instead of a nice small travel brush like BB?

  19. Ariel says:

    Oooooh love those powders, especially Sunset! I might have to rethink getting one of the new Chanel bronzers. The e/s palettes look promising too, but I find Dior’s e/s to be hit or miss so I will wait for the reviews.

    Do you know the release date for the collection?

  20. the Glo powders and the lip glosses look fantastic! Can’t wait!

  21. ALEXUTZA says:

    The nail polish and the glosses brings me the vibe of summer, but the eyeshadow palette is not too impressive. Too many neutrals.

  22. Marie says:

    I LOVE the glo powders and e/s quints…I’m gonna go broke this summer!

  23. Emma says:

    That first healthy glow powder looks perfect for me, but not sure about the price. Then again, it is Dior and the closest that I’d ever get to owning something that says Dior 🙂

  24. Tiffany says:

    oooh, I want the lighter of the glow powders. so pretty!!!!

  25. Samara says:

    Dior always makes me shake!

    Ohhh no my poor wallet!

  26. Chelsea says:

    Can’t wait till these come in at my work so I can play with them!

  27. Maddie says:

    I’m getting the Rosy Tan e/s quint for sure–so excited!
