The Dior Beauty Glowing Garden Spring 2016 is quite a big collection, so I’m posting on the star pieces in this post and tomorrow I’ll follow on with everything else. I can’t believe I said I was getting bored of Dior! This collection is exactly the right mix of vibrant shade and intricate patterning that I absolutely love on any make up – you will forgive me for not being able to swatch these beauties quite yet! Or ever.
First of all, the Diorskin Nude Air Glowing Gardens (£40) in an iridescent beige shade here, but there is also a pink version. Obviously, this is meant for highlighting and gentle contouring to give light-hit points to the face – fast forward from the grey clouds of November to the blue skies of March and April and this will come into its own.
The 5 Couleurs Glowing Gardens eye palettes come in this combination, above, which is Blue Garden, and a more pink led version, Rose Garden. Dior, both in beauty and fashion, take a lot of inspiration from flowers, not least because Christian Dior was very fond of his Granville home and garden. It’s a continuing thread through Dior collections.
I think that this popping pink/coral colour is one of Dior Beaute’s fortes – it slightly nudges toward neon in the pan but it’s one of those shades that always brings the complexion to life, even used at a very low intensity (in fact, it’s better used at a low intensity). The shade is called Floral Pink but it’s a re-working of a shade we’ve seen many times before in Dior collections because it never fails to have impact.
I think the Dior Beauty Glowing Garden Spring 2016 is so beautiful – if you ever hear me say I’m bored of Dior again, please do deliver a swift kick to my shin. The collection will hit on 20th January 2016.

Dior collections always look so gorgeous. But reading reviews they keep saying the colour pay off is not good these days compared to the old style palettes.
That eyeshadow palette must be mine, its beyond beautiful! I always love Dior Spring collections, they manage to capture the season so perfectly every time.
I’ll say it instead for you! After a closer look, I was totally underwelmed by the Christmas collection. I feel thts usually the case with Dior…. At First glance its all lovely but then I tend to forget about them. This collection does of course look stunning and you better believe I’ll be swatching!
My top product from the brand is the Dior Glow Maximiser. Oh how I adore this product and it’s multi purpose-ness. I never knew how grey and tired my skin looked until I pasted it all over one rough day last winter. Honestly it’s wonderful. Works well on my medium to olive skin as well as my mum’s pale rosey complexion. Jane, have you tried it?
I love Dior collections. The highlighter looks absolutely stunning love the embossing on these items too x
My last Dior palette, in Pied-a- Poulet, was mostly a washout, very difficult to blend the colours without sheering out. Only one shade was any good.
Dior collections are always stunners when you photograph them, but I’m always left underwhelmed after watching them, with weak colour payoff or less than impressing staying power. The embellishing is always so pretty tho. Definite stunners, just sadly, not worth the price tag x
