One of the more conservative collections this season
Dior went buck nekkid with the soft pinks, beiges and browns in the new Lady Dior collection.
I just tried a few of the new products and will post swatches when I have them, but so far … I’m interested but not in love.
The colors look natural and feminine to me but aren’t driving me wild.
I think one of the reasons I’m not falling head over heels over in love with this release is ’cause I’ve gotten a little more adventurous with color over the past few years, and I’ve seen some of these shades before.
Playing with these beiges and browns, I found myself wishing for a couple brighter roses and corals to balance out the nudes, like Chanel did with Bohemian Fantasy.
But, hey, if you like nude makeup, there’s plenty of it here to go around.
2 Colouers Eyeshadow Duo in Nude Look, $35
When it comes to the texture of their eyeshadows, Dior never fails to deliver. The matte grayish brown and the shimmery shell pink in the Nude Look duo ooze with intense color and blend flawlessly.
I would totes be into this duo more if the colors in it were more unusual.
But if you don’t have a huge eyeshadow collection or don’t have much experience with nude shades, Nude Look could be worth a splurge. They’re Dior, so you know you’re getting quality, and the colors are great basics to have around for work or school. The fine texture of these powders makes them practically fool-proof.

Dior Addict High Shine Lipcolor in New Look Beige ($26)
I have a suggestion. Dior should just call these lipstick crack. The texture of Addict feels slick and hydrating, and it’s, um, totally addictive, so it’s worthy of its name.
I found myself reaching for the tube every half hour. Maybe it’s the crack inside, LOL!
It makes lips look super shiny and doesn’t feel thick or heavy. Yup, I’m way crazy in love with this texture!
My only issue is with the color. Fo’ sho’ Addict feels great on my lips, but Nude Look Beige just doesn’t rock my boat because it looks so much like other pinkish beiges I’ve seen before. It’s a good every day color, though, especially if you’re looking for something that isn’t too flashy for work. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
Dior Long-Wearing Nail Lacquer in Porcelain ($20)
I’ve always liked Dior polishes. They’re incredibly sturdy, and Porcelain is no exception. This sweet and innocent pale pink somehow managed to hang onto my nails with nary a chip over the course of five days.
If it weren’t for the teeny bits of silver glitter in Porcelain, it would be a pretty standard color. I love how durable it is and how long it lasts on my nails, but I’m pretty sure I could find something similar for less $ from OPI or Essie. Unless you’re a die hard Dior nail polish fan, I’d think twice about Porcelain. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
Like going nude? Consider Lady Dior
There are things I like about Lady Dior, and I haven’t seen the whole collection yet, but so far it hasn’t really ignited my imagination. You know what? If I had run into this collection 10 year ago, I bet I would have jumped all over it. Back then I was all about beige, browns and pink!
What do you think of Lady Dior so far?
