I love beauty surprises! The reaction when someone wins a Dior giveaway is always priceless. I’ve had women scream in the middle of stores, restaurants and once in a class room! That’s because the luxe French fashion and beauty brand is creating some of the very best limited edition collections.
The latest, called Splendor, is one of my favourites. The iconic 5-Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette was transformed into a work of work with dozens of sequin motifs embossed onto the powder. The inspiration came from Dior’s own haute couture atelier where seamstresses work tirelessly to handcraft the finest gowns and jackets. Peter Philips, Dior’s Creative Director of Makeup, used tones of pink, mauve and violet to create this particular palette called “Precious Embroidery”, one of my favourites. You’ll notice he’s included a champagne gold to highlight. It’s beautifully done.

Diorific lipsticks once again come in luxe gold packaging meant to look like Dior accessories. And I’ve included the DiorBlush Light and Contour in this set as I find it is a hidden gem in the Dior lineup. It allows you to contour and highlight quickly and easily.
I’ve handpicked these items so that there is a set to surprise a BFF and one set for you to enjoy yourself. You decide who gets the lipstick in pink and who gets the one in gold. Either way, you both get to enjoy this really beautiful collection.
The Giveaway: I’m gave away this Dior Splendor set to one lucky reader. The winner got to surprise a friend with a palette, lipstick and DiorBlush Light and Contour… and keep one set for herself. To enter this giveaway I asked readers to tell me in a blog comment below who they would surprise with Dior! Maria Campbell told me and we drew her name from all entries. Congrats Maria!
