Chérie Bow by Dior

Images via

We're only nearing the end of January, and I'm already thoroughly fed up with winter. Those short lightning hours and long dark evening starting around 4pm have been seriously creeping up on me. I feel a very urgent lack of sunshine, vitamin D, fresh blooms and bright colors in my life. That's why these beautiful pastel photos of new Dior makeup collection couldn't have arrived in my inbox at a better moment.

Dior's makeup collections are always a highlight of the season, but Spring 2013 has given all the previous collections a run for their money. Dior Chérie Bow was inspired by Christian Dior himself, and his undying love of bows, especially the brand's signature Fontanges bow. It has been translated quite wonderfully into the most magnificent makeup palette resembling an adorable bow clutch.

The whole collection is utterly feminine, girlie and channeling the spirit of haute couture, with pearlescent textures all dressed up in ballerina pinks, dove greys and smoky blacks. This look has immediately landed on my list of beauty trends to recreate. I'm especially in love with the soft rosy-grey somky eye (after all, one of my 2013 goals is to see life through rose-tinted filter), glamorous pink lips and the most feminine manicure. It's everything I love about spring!


  1. So gorgeous...I will take anything of these colours at the sick of winter as well. No more darkness and drab, I need flowers and happy colours & SUN :))))) Can't wait!! Happy Monday doll xo

  4. IT is an awesome collection!! Love the colors in it, I'd love to get some pieces, especially the lipsticks! Kisses Ivana, have a great week ahead!!:*

  5. Thank you for presenting these beautiful shades. The nail varnishes are so pretty.


  6. Hi Ivana,
    Such a beautiful collection! I love it all! I guess we both have Dior on our minds.

    We are having some crazy weather here in Southern California. The last 2 weeks were cold and rainy and this week it is hot, windy and dry.
    I wish I could send you some California sunshine to cheer you up :)

  7. I know how you feel, I can't wait for spring.
    Dior campaign looks amazing, as always.
    There's a giveaway on my blog, by the way:

  8. Oh, WOW, beautiful, Ivana! Can't wait to purchase one of those makeup treasures, and you're right, they do put you in the mood for spring. I'm with you, the lack of light and shortened days are my biggest complaint about winter. Well, that and the cold. And slippery roads. (I guess the only thing I really like about winter, if pressed, would be snowflakes are pretty to look at and it feels so good to come back in and sit by a fire when you've been outside lol!) Love the image of the gorgeous Dior bow above!

    Thanks for stopping by today, Ivana ... and in response to your comment, you DO leave a trail of beauty and charm everywhere you go, in case you didn't know ;) Have a wonderful weekend, lovely! ~S

  9. Ohhh, these are lovely! I've been feeling a lack of light lately too, especially after going back to my parents and the land of sunshine for my Winter Break only to come back to endless snow, cold, and grey skies for college. Color is most definitely a welcome thing.


  10. Something tells me I am gonna buy this collection asap ! So pretty ! <3

  15. Hi Ivana, thanks for the kind comments, I love hearing your thoughts....I wish we could swop seasons, because I much prefer winter and shorter days. Ohhh thanks for sharing this serene collection, its the first time I am seeing it, I adore the pink pastels and the cute eye shadow sets, the applicators look very user-friendly. The texture print on the blush is the cutest touch!

  16. In love with this!;)

  17. It's charming, a very romantic and feminine palette. xo

  18. I'm not fed up with winter, but winter this season has been kinda boring, now I need spring to arrive, but a real spring; where I live there are nor spring nor autumn, we switch from winter to summer and from summer to winter.
    And this collection has the name of spring, it's beautiful!!
