Dior Fall 2013 Collection - Mystic Metallics
Mystic Metallics contains quite a few top rated products and the new eye shadow palettes are among them. Dior is one product line that I prefer the eye makeup products over the lip products and this is a rare occurrence for me since I love lipsticks and lip glosses more than any other type of makeup. I think I own less than five lip products from this company so I will want to add more lipsticks from Dior to my collection after viewing the newest from this company.
I can't find a collection description from Dior so I will try and sum up the collection theme myself before digging into the products and shades. This collection focuses on strong eye makeup and most (if not all) of the shades are rich metallic jewel tones. Dior provides nail shades to match the metallic eyes and lips take a back seat in neutral tones.

This is a pretty broad collection so I am going to start narrowing down my favorites from it. I really love the eye makeup look on the model so I will be starting with the 3 Couleurs Glow eye palette. I will then add the 5 Couleurs in the silver shade and then the single eye shadows in the white and charcoal shades. I love Dior mascaras and this will be the perfect time for me to add a few more to my collection and round out the eye makeup look that this collection can create. I am only really excited about the eye makeup pieces of this collection, I could easily skip over the few lip and cheek shades that were offered with this collection. This is one of the best collections for eye makeup this season but I can't say that it is one of the best overall since the rest of the shades are a bit weak.
We are almost done with the fall collections and will be wrapping them up in the next two weeks. After that fall will really be arriving and I will be getting ready to show off all my new makeup looks!
