Hello again everyone!
While we hardly get a shift of weather or temperature around here, can we say Fall is just around the (pretty large) corner?
Though we don't get the chance to embody this season with furry boots, thick coats and all, it's good enough to get into the mood of Fall through fashion and makeup collections.
Summer, I you love - sun and all - but in truth, I would take Fall over Summer anytime of the year!
This Fall, Dior took a step towards the glitz and glam and opted for an Avant Garde, sophisticated and sensual take on leopard prints.
While treading on the wild side, Dior keeps their Golden Jungle look luxurious and sophisticated with a touch of gold, an ever-standing Dior classic. Neutrals come to life in this collection and allows the everyday-woman to embrace a feline personality without straying from her comfort.
The star of this collection is the Golden Jungle Palette (S$100).
This beauty suits the bill perfectly, representing the 'wild' side of this collection with a chic leopard print motif formed from a trio of gorgeously sophisticated colors. The gloss encased allows for you to play up your pout and complete your sophisticated yet sensual look!
5 Couleur Designer (S$98), available in 2 shades.
For the simpler and more fuss free individual, here's 3 Couleur Glow (S$70), available in 4 shades.
Diorblush Glowing Color Powder Blush (S$66), available in 2 shades.
Rouge Dior Haute Couleur Voluptous Care Lipstick (S$45), available in 2 shades.
Rouge Dior Sérum de Rouge (S$50), available in 4 shades.
Incase anyone is wondering, this is a cross between a lip treatment (lipbalm-ish) and also a lipstick because it does provide a good amount of color.
And now, here's the best for last! Well, the best in my own terms at least.
Though the Golden Jungle Palette is so wickedly gorgeous in it's own way, I was drawn towards the selection of nail colors available, the Dior Vernis (S$37)

The lovely golden polish above is part of Dior's Golden Jungle Nail Art Duo which basically takes an idea from the shatter / crackle concept yet transforms it elegantly to a more animalistic print.
I know, it's about time Dior came out with a crackle / shatter styled polish. While late, it feels thought out and matching with the theme so it isn't like they are coming out with a shatter, just cause.
The shatter design looks very interesting and unique too, delicately replicating a crocodile leather effect. Here's a swatch from britishbeautyblogger because as we all know, things tend to look 'perfect' in press visuals but it's good to know the croc-shatter is easily achievable for us too!
I don't entirely understand the pricing I read but I believe the shatter polish retails for S$47 and the gold will be priced similar to the normal Dior Vernis Haute Couleurs, at S$37?
I will update again when I have it confirmed!
Fruitylashes has swatches of the Dior Vernis shades (sans shatter) along with other items within this collecion (Golden Jungle Palette!), so do check it out out if you are interested!
Thanks for reading! Do you see yourself eyeing anything from Dior's Fall 2012 release?
