Dior Spring 2011 Makeup Collection: Avenue Montaigne - Product Review

Inspired by the elegance and culture of Christian Dior’s original Paris boutique at 30 Avenue Montaigne, Dior’s new spring collection features the iconic greys of the House of Dior paired with ultra feminine shades of pink.

In true Parisian style, the collection houses the key tones of Avenue Montaigne on a perfect spring evening. Imagine the sun setting, the wisps of silvery clouds from pearl grey to white. Now think of smoky and pearly grey eyes enhanced with powdery touches of baby and boudoir pink and a natural, glowing complexion…soft, sophisticated and VERY Dior.

Here’s what you will find:

Dior 5 color Palette Spring 2011

Dior 5-Color Eyeshadow in Gris-Gris, #034 ($58). These shades seem very “fall” but the overall look is very spring-y not when you pair them with the lip shades in the collection.

Dior 5 color Palette Spring 2011

Dior 5-Color Designer Eyeshadow in Soft Pink Design, #018 (not at Sephora $58.00). In case you find the above eye shadow palette extremely rigid, play up a smokey eye with this more feminine palette.

Dior Mono Eye Shadow spring 2011

Dior Crayon Eyeliner Smoky Grey, #077 ($28.00). This crayon liner (not shown) contrasts your smoky eye look. Be daring and use if for a cat eye look! The above Mono Eyeshadow is for the gals who like their shadows to go stag.


Rouge Dior Lipcolor in Spring Pink #540 (not at Sephora $30.00); Rouge Dior Lipcolor in Chic Pink #658 (not at Sephora $30.00). See what we meant when we said to pair the gray eye shadow palette with girly lip color?


Dior Serum de Rouge in Pink Coral #240 (not at Sephora $32.00); Dior Serum de Rouge in Pinky Mauve #460 (not at Sephora $32.00). These blush sticks are adorable and give you just the desired “cherry blossom” look. No flushed or pinched cheeks.


Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Pink Veil #654 ($26.50); Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Trianon Silver #707 (Sephora Exclusive $26.50). The perfect veils to your lipstick.


Dior Vernis in Gris Montaigne #707 ($21.00); Dior Vernis in Pink Boa #349 (not at Sephora $21.00). It looks like gray is seriously conquering the spring digits too, right? We love Gris Montaigne.

This collection is available January 24th at Dior Beauty Counters, Dior.com as well as in Sephora. Will you shop Montaigne? Are you digging this combination of pink and gray?
