Dior Holiday 2015 Couture Palettes


The holiday season seems to have inspired our favorite brand Dior to the fullest: shortly after we learnt about the launch of the gorgeous Dior State of Gold holiday 2015 makeup collection, here came the news about the launch of the Dior Holiday 2015 Couture Palettes. Moreover, the launch date for sales is the same – this November! Now this is overwhelming, as we have hardly ever seen such an abundance of makeup kits that are absolutely to die for.

Dior Couture Creations Palette for Face, Eyes & Lips ($89.00) (Limited Edition)

The first thing to notice here is the classy package, which is a black wallet-like case with zipper containing everything you need for your entire couture makeup look (except for mascara) – powder, blush, eyeshadows and lip products with three travel-size applicators. These include double-sided brushes for eyes (sponges) and lips and a fluffy angled mini brush for powder and blush, which are definitely easier to use.

• Diorific Face Powder in No. 001 Rose d’Or
• Dior Eyeshadows in matte peachy pink, silver-taupe, purple and shimmery gold, champagne and black
• Diorblush in matte baby pink
• Dior Addict Gloss in a rosewood-pink shade
• Rouge Dior in No. 775 Darling

Dior Couture Smoky Palette for Eyes & Lips ($62.00) (Limited Edition)

For those of you who love bold eye looks both on a daily basis and for special occasions, Dior offers its Couture Smoky Palette for Eyes & Lips with incredible lovely shades and textures. This palette will be the favorite of the lucky owners of green and blue eyes, as the purple is a 100% match with those eye colors. It comes with a two-sided applicator with sponge and fluffy brush on both sides.

• Dior Rouge in No. 468
• Lip Maximizer in watermelon-pink
• Dior Eyeshadows in shimmery beige-gold, mauve-purple and matte merlot-brown

Dior Holiday Couture Collection Pret-a-Porter Nude Palette for Eyes & Lips ($62.00)

For those of you who are more into classic nudes and browns to fit any occasion, Dior has prepared this palette, which is similar to the previous Smoky palette, but has colder shades. It includes:

• Lip Maximizer in Peachy-Pink
• Dior Rouge Lipstick in No. 766
• Dior Eyeshadows in Champagne, Bronze and matte Cider-Brown

Dior Backstage Brush Set ($95.00) (Limited Edition)

For your ultimate couture makeup look Dior has prepared this travel size brush set with applicators for powder, foundation cream, eyeshadows, eyeliner and lipstick. With a handy lovely black lacquer case, you will be ready to touch up your face anywhere you go.

Dior Holiday 2015 Couture Palettes

Dior Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Set ($28.50) (Limited Edition)

Finally, yet importantly, here comes a small set with Dior mascara and a small five-color eyeshadow palette (first released in fall 2014), which will make your eyes especially attractive and proper looking for both formal and informal occasions. The mascara is not travel-size for a simple reason – it is never too much!

• Diorshow Overcurl Iconic Mascara (Full size)
• Dior 5-couleurs in No. 056 Bar with shades Classic white, black, peachy, grey and beige-bronze (to act as a transitional or prime color)

Made By Fabrix iPhone6/iPhone6Plus Marble Snap Case

Other Brands

made_by_fabrix_iphone6-iphone6plus-marble-snap-caseThis post is pretty much self-explanatory. Marble is in. iPhone6 and iPhone6Plus phones are all the rage now. Put them together and you’ve got a bestseller on your hands now as far as the Made By Fabrix iPhone6/iPhone6Plus Marble Snap Case is concerned. Priced at USD18 and USD22 for the iPhone6 and iPhone6Plus cases respectively, they are also available in either cool white or emo black.

And because it’s technically the same as the ones I featured from Case Scenario I blogged about earlier this month, I went ahead and ordered this one as well, which I’ll then put side by side with the other and decide which is THE one you should be getting if you haven’t already. In other words, stay tuned!

Beauty Inspiration from Emmy Awards 2015


The Emmy Awards of 2015 just took place but 2 days ago and the media is abuzz with the results. It was to be expected that Game of Thrones would wipe the slate clean, but none imagined them taking home 12 trophies! Sunday’s telecast of the 67th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards brought to the red carpet as well as the stage some of the loveliest ladies in town, who stunned with their gowns and even more so with their beauty looks that were all it took to sweep the men on their arms away. While the audience was the smallest yet at only 11.9 million viewers, down from last year’s 15.6 million, the ladies and gents in the crowd were certainly looking dapper. We love the Emmys because we love television and that is a fact. It was intriguing that Modern Family got left with nothing, but others like Orange is the New Black and West Wingwere more than expected. At the end of the day though, we all watch to check out what people are wearing and which new beauty trends the celebrities are sporting during the major breaks in their careers. But who exactly took home the prize for best beauty looks from the Emmy Awards 2015 – unofficially, of course?

Emmy Awards 2015 Celebrity Hairstyles and Beauty

1. Julianne Hough

She’s been a favourite on Dancing With the Stars. The 27-year-old American dancer, singer, songwriter and actress is the two-time professional champion of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars series, which has won the hearts of North Americans and many others worldwide. From Orem, Utah, the girl’s got country written all over her and whether she’s singing or dancing, she is a star. Beautiful beyond belief, it came as a bit of a surprise to see her glowing so much on the red carpet. She took headwear to a whole new level by adding the same type of corseting used on her sexy dress to her hairdo while pulling everything back and giving a bump or two or three at the crown. It is an intriguing look where her face is fully revealed but we have certainly seen some better images. We love the peach on her lips and the smoky shadow though, offsetting the glow in her cheeks, on her chin and forehead. We almost feel like handing her some powder!

2. January Jones

American actress and model from South Dakota, the 37-year-old January Kristen Jones is too hot to handle, as seen in her roles on Mad Men, American Wedding and many others. Apparently she’s been having relationship troubles as well, since it is plastered all over the news that her and Will Forte are done for after five months of dating. Needless to say, she is beyond gorgeous and her name was given to match her month of birth, making her pretty unique. For a woman of her age, she doesn’t look a day over 25, especially when she opts for the barely there look she had on during the Emmys 2015. Some reddish pink lipstick, a slight dash of liner and mascara and shoulder-length hair parted from the center, left straight are lovely to behold.

3. Laura Prepon

If there was a woman to stun the crowd, it was the Orange is the New Black actress Laura Prepon, with her scarlet gown complete with a mermaid train and a golden bolero jacket on top for added appeal. The former That ‘70s Show sitcom star might be 35 years old, but she most certainly is exquisite to behold with her New Jersey style and sophisticated manners. She’s chic and fabulous, what with her incredible smoky eyes blended perfectly with inky opaque liner and those really long lashes that could make even the least lustful male stare in awe. Her messy updo complements the look perfectly, while her peachy lipstick is just what the beautician ordered. She was probably the best look on the red carpet at the Emmy Awards 2015.

4. Taylor Schilling

Cute, Sweet and utterly adorable in her bright yellow backless dress on the red carpet, the pop of color certainly suits the 31-year-old Orange is the New Black actress, who has won the Satellite Award for Best Actress in a television series musical or comedy. She’s been on the silver screen since 2007, but began her acting career back in middle school when she appeared on stage for Fiddler on the Roof. To date, she is the winner of 5 awards, including one this year for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Her look for the Emmys was probably not one of her best though, the Old Hollywood theme not really matching with her facial structure, despite the whole Baby thing happening. She literally looks like she walked out of the original Dirty Dancing film. On the other hand, she was most definitely looking the part of a Greek goddess, with her tangerine lips and shiny waves. Add a sunny smile and she was the most captivating of actresses on the carpet.

5. Kerry Washington

When it comes to the sexiest stars on the big screen, Kerry Washington is certainly one of the best known and most loved. Her performance on the hit series Scandal was breathtaking and her quirky attitude and sense of style are always there to keep up intrigued… like the scandalously sexy leather zip-up dress worn a few days back on Jimmy Kimmel Live. When it comes to beauty looks, this is one lady who can look chic and sophisticated while also using those killer curves to leave men begging at her feet. At the Emmys though, she was all mature, beautiful and soft, very much the strong woman she has often played to be. With a sequined dress like that we would not expect anything less than a bob really as those shoulder embellishments needed to be shown off. Lightly lined lips and eyes with a healthy amount of mascara and a shiny look to the skin was all it took to complete the 38-year-old’s comely look, making her the beauty icon of mature women everywhere.

At Hermès, recycling gets a whole new meaning through the luxury house’s Petit H line of products. The line utilizes waste materials left over after the creation of other Hermès goods to create fun and quirky items that are as endearing as they are unique. The brand has added an additional air of intrigue to the label by launching a monthly Mystery box.

Other brands usually use this promotion on a subscription basis, but Petit H has chosen not to take this route. The brand describes the promotion saying: “Each month, we surprise you with a new selection of items from Petit h, our laboratory of imagination and reconstruction.” Everyone is a winner with this surprise box.

Luxurydaily reported that the mystery box was available in three price tiers. The PM box for $240, suitable for both genders, a MM box best suited for women with a price of $440 and the GM option, available for $580 is also intended for female customers.

Though Hermès gives no hint of what the boxes could contain, it is most likely that they will be small leather goods, jewelry or similar trinkets.
