Dior Beauty Jazz Club Fall Collection: A Review and Makeup Lesson Video

Post image for Dior Beauty Jazz Club Fall Collection: A Review and Makeup Lesson Video

by Sonja on August 25, 2009

The new Dior Beauty Jazz Club Collection for fall is filled with sultry smoky greys, purples, and light pinks inspired by the jazz scene and the daring femme fatales of the twenties and thirties. The star of the show is the limited-edition Jazz Club palette with its beautiful reusable case inspired by the Dior Couture Jazzclub line. Today I have more details on the collection and a makeup lesson video from a Dior national makeup artist.

About the Collection

Dior Fall Collection 2009Dior is always great about coming out with striking makeup inspired by fashion and looks on the runway. The colors are so rich and the textures luxurious. The fall collection is no exception.

The limited-edition Jazz Club palette in Smoky Jazz and Purple Jazz ($65) comes with just about everything you need for day and evening looks. There’s a no-smudge cream liner, brow powder, and four shadows, including a matte shade, two iridescent shades, and a shimmery, light “top coat.” I love that it comes in a wallet-size case that can be used as a makeup case or even a little clutch when you remove the makeup. It’s also a serious deal when you consider all you’re getting.

There’s a new 5-Colour Eyeshadow in Night Butterfly ($56) with a perfectly coordinated collection of charcoal, lavender, light grey, and two plums. The collection also includes several more decadent shades of shadows, an eyeliner, glosses, lip colors, and nail lacquers – everything from nudes to red with colors predominantly in the purple family.

The collection also features the new Brow Styler ($28). This is a great tool – dual-ended with a brush at one end and a super fine pencil at the other for really precise application. You can draw in the tiniest hair. It also has a great formula that isn’t waxy like so many brow pencils so it stays on really well. It comes in one color that’s truly flattering universally.

A Makeup Lesson

Dior Foundation, Powder, Skinflash, Iconic MascaraI stopped by Saks San Francisco to get a makeup lesson with Dior National Makeup Artist Karen Hummel. She shared lots of insider tips and techniques that I’ve been incorporating into my makeup routine. I love how she played up my eyes with the greys in the Smoky Jazz Jazz Club compact ($65). And I was blown away by by how long and full my lashes looked when she layered two shades of the new Diorshow Iconic Mascara ($27). It almost looked like I was wearing false lashes.

I also fell head over heels for the new award-winning Diorskin Nude Fresh Glow Hydrating Makeup SPF 10 ($45) and Diorskin Nude Fresh Glow Powder SPF 10 ($45). They do a wonderful job perfecting the complexion and feel so refreshing and cooling (even the powder). The Radiance Booster Pen ($34) is also a knockout brightener and concealer in one. Check out the video and click on the face chart to see what Karen used.
