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.
