I am in love with this little gem from the Dior Atelier Of Dreams Holiday 2021 Collection. This year’s holiday collection is the Dior Atelier Collection. The Collection is a nod to the iconic location of the world-renowned Dior Boutique: 30 Avenue Montaigne Paris. And, the Dior Ecrin Couture Multi Use Makeup Palette does a great job carrying the theme of the Location of the House of Dior, throughout the packaging, and the curated shades for eyes, lips, and face, in the Ecrin Couture Palette.
What I love about this palette, usually when you hear HOLIDAY, you think of a lot of sparkle and shine. Not so with this palette. Instead, this is a Couture Palette with Iconic Makeup Shades for Eyes, Lips, and Face. The shades are pretty and neutral, so you can gift this palette to anyone! And, you can use this palette for everything, from soft day looks, to more intense night and black tie party looks. This palette is an elegant couture, curated, Dior Palette. You can’t get much better than that!
You can find the Dior Ecrin Couture Atelier of Dreams Holiday Palette for Face, Eyes and Lips, at Macys, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Harrods, and on the Dior Website. Also, the Dior Ecrin Couture ( 0.92 oz. / 26.10g) costs $115.
The Holiday Packaging for the Ecrin Couture Palette is outstanding. This makeup palette comes in a chic, giftable box that has the Dior Atelier of Dreams colors. Dior created a makeup palette that features makeup essentials for face, eyes, and lips. And, the palette comes in a couture-inspired case. First, the case comes in a velvet dust bag. Also, there is a pocket on the front of the dust bag, with the CD initials.
Inside the pocket is your blush brush! The thick, black, leather-like case is understated and elegant. It is embossed with a motif inspired by the iconic Dior Boutique at 30 Avenue Montaigne. The gold lever, adorned with the “CD” initials for Christian Dior, adds a sophisticated touch when one opens the makeup palette. The case looks like a purse. And… Guess what? The makeup comes out ,when you are finished with it. Then, you can use the case as a Dior Couture Clutch. This makes the palette not only travel-worthy, it makes it even more versatile.
Inside underneath the lid, the case has a huge mirror. And, on the other side, the palette includes an illuminating powder, a 5 Color Couture Eyeshadow Palette, 2 blushes, and 4 lipsticks. Also included in the palette is 1 double-ended applicator for eye makeup, 1 blush brush (in the pocket of the dust bag), and 1 double-ended lip applicator.
Diorific Splendor Illuminating Pressed Powder
The Illuminating Pressed Powder, Embossed with DIOR 30 Montaigne, is smooth and silky. It is a golden shade with a peach undertone, and a shimmering finish. It is not too much sparkle. Instead, it gives you a beautiful , elegant, couture luminescence.
Use a soft brush for a more diffused look. If you want more color payoff, you will get great results if you use a ense, synthetic brush!
5 Color Couture Eyeshadow Palette
The Eyeshadows are embossed with the building imprint of the case. Dior carries the theme of the Atelier of Dreams Boutique throughout the palette! This is a very well thought-out palette, from the curated shades to the outstanding design of Dior Ecrin Dior Iconic Makeup Colors for Face, Eyes, and Lips.
All of the 5 Couleurs Couture Palettes are signature Dior. There are two shades at the top, one highlighter in the middle, and two shades on the bottom. Also important, these palettes are designed to create multiple looks. However, two looks are laid out for you. Top shades left and right , plus the center shade, create your soft look. Then, the left and right bottom shades, plus the shade in the center of the palette, create your intense look! Although, you can create any look you want with any or all of these shades!
Top Left, a light taupe shade, has a satin finish. I would wear this taupe satin shade all over the eye, and into the crease.
Top Right,a white shade, has a shimmery finish. This white shimmer would look great as a highlighter, on your brow bones, and on the inner corners of your eyes.
The Center Shade, a champagne shade, has a shimmery finish. Wear this shade as a topper, over any of the other shades. Also, you can wear this champagne topper on the center of your eyelids. Tap it on, and your eyes will pop.
Finally, the shades in the DiorEcrinCoutureHOliday 2021 Atelier of Dreams Face Eyes LIps Palette is the gift to give this holiday season. It is a Dior Couture Palette, that has all the color you need for your lips, eyes, cheeks, and face! It can also be used as a Dior Couture Clutch! Pretty Cool Gift, Right?
Bottom Left, a medium taupe brown shade, has a satin finish. Wear this taupe brown shade all over the eyes and in the crease.
Bottom Right, a deep chocolate brown shade, has a matte finish. Wear this deep brown shade on the outer corners of your eyes. Also, wear this dark brown shade to line your lower, and upper lash lines. Even more, wear this one in your crease. (Then dab the center shade on the center of your eyelids.)
Rouge Blush Long-Wear Powder Blush
There are two blushes in the palette.
The blush that is next to the eyeshadow palette, and the blush to the right, at the end of the palette. The blush has no shimmer. Also, the color payoff doesn’t seem quite as rich as some of the Dior blushes. Although, the blushes are buildable.
The Blush Next to the Eyeshadow Palette, a pinky-peachy shade, has a matte finish. This blush has a softer look than the pink blush.
Next, the Blush at the end of the right side of the palette, a pink shade, has a matte finish. This blush is brighter than the pinky peach blush.
For more color payoff, use a synthetic blush brush that is denser than a soft brush.
Rouge Dior Couture Color Lipstick
There are four lipsticks from left to right. On the far left is a Classic, neutral shade of red. Next to the Classic Red is a Cooler red shade. Next to the Cooler Red shade is a pink shade with fuchsia undertones. Last, the shade on the right end of the palette, a pink shade with a rosy undertone.
Finally, I am excited about this incredible Couture Palette. It would make a gorgeous gift. First, the palette has all the color you need for day and night looks, you can use this for EVERYTHING!
Also,the palette includes the brushes to apply all of the shades. PLus, when you use up all the colors, the Palette turns into a Dior Couture Clutch! Pretty Cool Gift, right? Or Gift one to Yourself, you deserve it!
