Happy hump day, young lady. :) How are tricks out yonder way? Are you having a good week?

I wanted to post some swatches of the new Dior Montaigne spring collection. Here are all the products with the exception of the one lonely Sephora exclusive, Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in Trianon Silver #707, which I’ll add here as soon as I’ve seen it up close and personal.

Now, brace yourself for a whole lotta pink and gray (aka, my favorite colors in fourth grade, LOL!).

    Gorgeous colors! When I was in 6th grade I had an Aziza pink and grey eye shadow compact (remember Aziza, anyone??) that I wore daily. This palette looks much nicer :)

  4. Nina says:

    gorgeous collection!!! i still love the quint best though!

  5. Kim says:

    My, the colors in Soft Pink are very *soft*. :)

    When I was in 6th grade, my favorite shirt was a wide-striped, rugby style in pink and gray. It had a white, stiff, fold-down collar and 3 snaps (where the buttons would normally have been). It also featured a large front pocket, like a sweatshirt. I loved that shirt. And the pink/gray combo too. I guess those were popular grade school colors!

  6. Trisha says:

    That IS a lot of pink and grey. It seems like spring makeup’s going to be kind of…solemn. Though I did really like the lipstick swatches.

    Happy hump day! This week is pretty blah so far :( I wish this ice would melt already!

  8. Ruchita says:

    Thanks for the swatches! The colors are very pretty.

    I had a pink and gray Huffy ten-speed bike back in middle school. :-)

    Karen use tape on your skin bedore applying nail polish otherwise your skin is gonna dry out!
    Invisible (Matte) tape works the best.
    BTW- Awesome shades of lipcolor.
    Hugs.

    I’m wicked lemming that gris palette :-O I rather like the gray nailpolish too, though I’m sure I’ve got a dupe for it in my collection already. I’ve been obsessed with gray everything since last year :D

    So pretty, thank you for the swatches! I need another Dior palette, I’m still sad about the last one I had that shattered :-(

  13. Ariel says:

    The pink nail polish looks like a sherbet color in the bottle, but swatched it looks like just a regular pink. I’ll have to check it out in person.

    Thanks for all of the swatches!

    I’m going to have to dig deep for restraint! These colors are right up my alley and I love the quints….I need to go on a makeup buying hiatus for awhile.

  15. ann says:

    HAHA. We just learned about Michel de Montaigne in AP euro history (I’m in high school). How funny. I wonder if they named the collection after him…

  16. Susan says:

    Thanks so much Karen for posting these, Karen! I’ve been waiting to see all the swaches. Would you have swatches of the 2 limited quitted quads?

  17. Shannon says:

    What a pretty, girly collection! I’m going to have to check it out as soon as it hits other stores (or as soon as I can make it to my nearest Nordstrom).

    Thanks so much for all the swatches. You’ve given me something to look forward to!
