It's official, Dior has set the tone for the holiday season. Its brand-new collection, affectionately labelled Midnight Wish, promises a sparkling Christmas thanks to the limited-edition lipsticks, bronzer and eyeshadow palettes. We picked up Natasha Ekstedt to trial the goodies and talk all things festive along the way.
After admitting she's not done any Christmas shopping yet (erm, Natasha, you're cutting it fine!) she decided the Diorific lipsticks make excellent stocking fillers due to their easy application, festive colouring and pretty gold packaging. Natasha tried shades Lovely and Audacieuse while Features Editor Olivia sampled the two red options: Desirable and Triomphante. "You have something for every look," Natasha concedes, "We're both very different skin tones and I could have worn the red and you the dark."
Next, Natasha - who moved from Saudi Arabia when she was three and has grown up in Dubai - brushed up on the Couture Colour Golden Shimmer Powder Blush and Olivia put the 5 Couleurs Midnight Wish eyeshadow palette in silver, grey and taupe tones to work. The verdict? It's perfect to dazzle and sparkle this holiday season.
Dior's Christmas collection brings Carpool Cosmetics nicely to the end of the road for series one.
