While shopping in Paris, I noticed that one of the department stores had Dior’s Mitzah Collection in stock.  This is a very small, limited edition collection that includes the Imprime Jungle eyeshadow palette (90 euros) and two vernis nail colors (in #912 Ebony and #622 Camel)(23 euros each).   The collection commemorates Christian Dior’s friend and muse, Mitzah Bricard.

I haven’t had time to play with this, but wanted to post some quick pictures.  There are not many made (each is specially numbered).

The eyeshadow palette has a cream matte base color, that can be used from lashline to browbone.  The camel tone can be used over the entire lid.  The deep brown is a gorgeous liner (top and bottom) and can be used to add a sophisticated smoke color in the crease.  This was the technique that was used during my makeover, and I absolutely loved it.
Alternatively, you can swish the colors together to make an overall lid color that is a mix of the three colors together.

The shades are beautifully coordinated and seem primarily matte in texture.  They are quite soft and easy to work with.  You can make a very sophisticated and sexy eye with these colors.  Gorgeous.


Dior’s Mitzah collection also features two nail polishes– Camel and Ebony.

I only had time to do a quick manicure with Camel, which applies well although it is a bit sheer.  This is three coats:

Overall, these collections compliment my warm, fair skin tone and so I’m pleased with the sophistication and quality of this collection.  I expect that this will sell out quickly, given the universal “neutrals with an edge” vibe that seems to make great makeup fly off the shelves.
