The 2012 Dior Spring Makeup Collection called The Garden Party will be launched early January next year. The beauty of this collection is hard to pass up and must be shared to my beloved readers, hence this got me back to blogging again. J’adore Dior! This collection was purely inspired by the beautiful gardens in Granville, Normandy, in northwestern France. This small harbor town is home to the legendary couturier, Christian Dior, where he built a house on a edge of a cliff surrounded by a luscious garden full of roses. This collection represents the vibrant colors of spring in Granville: pastels, soft pinks, light greens and lilacs.
Garden Clutch $75
This tastefully hand-crafted clutch contains three beautiful spring themed eyeshadows, one Dior Ultra-Gloss and one Lip Maximizer. The clutch comes in rose-bud clasps, leather-like shell exterior in woven-pattern design. Very soft and refreshingly spring-like.
- Milly Garden #001 in silver and pinks is exclusively available at Nordstrom and Dior.com.
- Granville Garden #002 in green and peach
5 Couleurs Palette Garden Edition $59
These Garden Edition palettes contain cool-tone shades of pinks, greens and violets. Very light, feminine and offers a unique blend of pastel colors. Sheer and shimmery combinations which are great for adding glow and radiance to your overall look.
- Garden Pastels Harmony #441 in pale pink, buttercup yellow, and luminous greens
- Garden Roses Harmony #841 in soft pinks, parma violet, silver and purple
Dior Vernis Garden Party $23 (limited edition)
The nail lacquers are rose-scented and great accents to any spring outfits. Comes in soft natural themed colors of green and mauve.

Rosy Glow Blush $28
This powder blush is feathery light and irresistibly rosy. This is nothing like the previous glow blushers. This type of blush will adjust and blend to your skin color just like the cream blushers.
Dior Ultra-Addict Glosse $28
The glosses stay true to its Garden Party theme and are as vibrant as the spring flowers.
