The Dior Grand Bal Carnet de Maquillage Makeup Palette for Glowing Eyes and Lips ($85) is a limited edition. Inspired by the dance cards held by young women in the eighteenth century to help keep track of their dance partners, this essential beauty kit will become a must-have for the modern party lover. The glamorous gold clutch features a pearl eyeshadow duo of platinum and gold, two shades of gloss, a mirror, and deep black eyeliner for quick touch-ups. It has the most amazing closure - a gold bar that slides into the hollow "clasps" that you see at the top and bottom in the photo above. This palette is gorgeous.
For better or worse, I swatched the new Dior Addict Ultra Glosses under clouds, and I'll show them to you tomorrow. You can tell I'm desperate when I start taking photos under dense clouds.
Dior's Grand Bal Collection also has four intense red-toned Dior Diorling Diorific Lipsticks. They are all here because my SA said to take them before they sold out and make up my mind later. Good thinking - except I know they are all too intense/dark for my tastes.
Dior's Grand Bal Collection is arriving in stores now, and the items are selling out almost the moment they arrive. Why do they order so few pieces?
