Dior | Holiday 2020 Golden Nights Collection: Review and Swatches
For this holiday season, Dior's creative director Peter Philips is putting a "rock n' roll twist" to the traditional fairy tale fantasy with the brand new Holiday 2020 Golden Nights Collection. Offering an array of products with a focus on black and gold, the collection is available for only a limited time. I've got a peek at a handful of goodies to share with you today.

Dior Holiday 2020 | 5 Couleurs Couture Golden Nights Eyeshadow Palette in "089 Black Night": Review and Swatches

Dior | Holiday 2020 5 Couleurs Couture Golden Nights Eyeshadow Palette in "089 Black Night" (C$75 for 4 g):
Also available in "549 Golden Snow", the limited edition 5 Couleurs Couture Golden Nights Eyeshadow Palette features a beautiful snowflake pattern pressed onto the powders. Unfortunately, three out of the five shades are not secured properly and fell out as soon as I opened the palette. Thankfully, none of them broke but there's pretty much no way of traveling with the palettes without destroying the shadows.

"089 Black Night" features five stunning shades. There is a burgundy brown shimmer, a striking metallic silver, a shimmery black, a deep granite shimmer, and a matte black. As evidenced in the swatches above, all five shades (matte included) are super creamy and pigmented. I would 100% recommend this palette had the packaging not been a problem.

Dior | Holiday 2020 Golden Nights Rouge Blush (C$57 for 5 g):
Pressed with a snowflake pattern overlaid with the "CD" emblem, the Golden Nights Rouge Blush comes in two beautiful wintery shades. Technically a highlighter, "310 Golden Frisson" is a subtle nude champagne gold. The formulation is fine and silky, providing the skin with a fairy glow.

"353 Rose Frisson" is a soft petal pink scattered with golden shimmers. The color is semi-sheer but buildable. Similar to the highlighter, this shade is also creamy and silky. Both shades are fairly sparkly but because their coverage is rather sheer, they don't feel super glittery or over the top.

Dior | Holiday 2020 Diorific Golden Nights Lipstick (C$51 for 3.5 g):
Available in four limited-edition shades, the Diorific Golden Nights Lipstick comes in the iconic bauble-like golden case. The lipstick bullet is embossed with an exquisite snowflake pattern and the "CD" emblem- almost too pretty to use. "071 Glittery Rose" is a beautiful dusty rosy pink. The color has just the right balance of warm and cool tones and it's actually quite difficult to capture on camera. The lipstick does contain some fine shimmers but the finish has a satin-matte, almost metallic finish. It's worth noting that the formulation is quite pigmented but not super creamy. So although not very nourishing, the color does last quite well.

"072 Shimmery Red" is a unique pinkish red. This shade is very pigmented so the shimmer particles are almost completely obscured. The formulation is creamier than the pink so the finish is more satin than matte. Additionally, the lipstick does have a bit of a gritty texture but it's subtle and not too bothersome. 

Dior | Holiday 2020 Rouge Dior Golden Nights Lipstick (C$46 for 3.5 g):
Also embossed with a beautiful snowflake pattern, this limited edition version of the Rouge Dior Lipstick is available in five shades this holiday season. "999 Rouge" is the iconic Dior red. It's a classic true red with a rich and super-pigmented formulation. The finish is prone to smudging and transferring due to its slick, nourishing finish so touch-ups are needed throughout the day.

Dior | Holiday 2020 Diorific Vernis in "787 Red Wonders" (C$33 for 12 ml):
One of the four limited-edition Diorific Vernis shades available this year, "787 Red Wonders" is a beautiful rich red with a subtle hint of pink. Red polishes are usually intense and saturated with pigments, but this shade is slightly sheerer than expected. I used two coats for the swatches below but the finish is a touch patchy as you can clearly see.
