“Now that Cinderella’s fairy godmother no longer exists, the couturier must be the magician,” said Christian Dior. From his extravagant over-the-top parties in Granville (his childhood home) to the Parisian balls of the Roaring 20’s — the couturier was fascinated by the transformative qualities of the ball gowns and the fantasy of the fabulous fairytale. This collection was inspired by Dior‘s love for entertaining: the Limited Edition Palette Grand Bal Carnet de Maquillage, four new shades of Diorific, Dior‘s most haute couture lipstick, two new shades of Ultra-Gloss and four new shades of Dior Vernis make their debut.

The Palette Grand Bal Carnet de Maquillage ($85.00) is a limited edition palette that was inspired by dance cards held by women during the 18th century to keep track of their dance partners. This kit is a glamorous gold clutch featuring a pearl eyeshadow duo of platinum and gold, two shades of gloss, a mirror and a deep black eyeliner for quick touch-ups. It’s a must-have beauty kit for the modern day party girl, indeed!

The Dior Grand Bal Collection includes:

Rouge Diorific ($36.00 each) in Diorling, #037, Diva #038 (pictured/swatched), Lady # 039 and Marilyn #040 (pictured/swatched)
