Very Limited Edition Dior Palette: Tailleur Bar
Oh wowzers!! Ok, beauty die-hards need their diaries at the ready to get hold of one of these! The Tailleur Bar Limited Edition Palette, £65, goes on sale in Selfridges, London, on 2nd August (although the eagle-eyed will have spotted it launched in similar limited numbers in France earlier in the year). It comes presented in a beautiful Dior white box, and each one is numbered and has detailed instructions on how to apply the shadows – inspired by Christian Dior’s favourite colours. The design is taken from an original illustration (seen above) by Rene Gruau and celebrates the first Dior Couture Collection in 1947 and the Bar suit. The Palette comes with a limited edition Serum de Rouge to compliment the palette eye shades, and there are instructions on how to use the colours for beautiful eyes. Right, there will only be 150 of these palettes on sale – so if you are a collector you’ll need to be hot on it. Good luck!
NB: You’ll see from my own picture the colours aren’t as vivid in reality – much more muted in wearable mauve/grey with accents.
