I finally got this in!
After weeks of wait-listing it on Dior’s site I couldn’t contain myself and ended up ordering from Nordstrom and then Beauty the Shop. The Dior Skyline limited edition collection beholds a range of plummy smoldering browns in the lip offerings and one nail lacquer (there is also a flesh tone lacquer #112 Minimal) and for the two limited edition eye palettes in a pattern inspired by the iconic architecture of the Eiffel Tower, #806 Capital of Light boasts a smokey plum, a rich taupe, a splendid mauve and a creamy nude. In it’s accompany counterpart, #506 Parisian Sky you’ll find delicate jewel tones in mint green, smokey quartz, dark chocolate and a beige pearl. I went for the Dior Addict Lipstick Hydra Gel Core Mirror Shine in Sophisticated and the Dior Addict Ultra Gloss #929 in Scandalous both a mix of shimmering cocoa and rich amethyst also which seem to be out of stock almost everywhere. They keep popping up on Dior Beauty and then running out again. The shadow palettes are still available at Neiman Marcus (at the time of this post) but as a limited edition that has been out for two months already it may be reaching an end to re-stocking. I wanted to put in an order for the Parisian Sky palette but I waited around for a bit because I wasn’t so sure if I needed another shadow palette but as with anything “limited edition” I’m sold…aah.And now I’ve been challenged by my son and husband to a 25 day “no shopping” hold. Are they kidding? Luckily I already ordered the Capital of Light palette from Neiman Marcus and I’m just waiting for it to arrive…ha ha ha!!! (insert maniacal laugh) I also had to search to an obscure beauty vendor for the Dior Vernis Gel Shine Nail Lacquer in the signature color Skyline. Now as I have learned Beauty the Shop has my palette for even less! They retail for $63 US but BTS list for $53.50 so even with shipping of $6 my total would only be $60. FYI, they only have the other palette, Parisian Sky. I would save a little bit because they wouldn’t charge any tax or duties.Let’s hope it’s still there when the “ban” is up. And my previous shipping and shopping experience was top notch! Even though it was coming from Spain! They always kept me in the loop with text updates and shipping and tracking info that literally let me know where my package was in real time! It’s so convenient in case you need to be somewhere but you want to get back in time to receive your package or at least in a near vicinity of that time frame. A lot of merchants are doing this. I noticed this with Nordstrom and Sephora as well.
Dior Capital of Light Palette $63
Dior Parisian Sky Palette $63
I almost forgot to talk about my new Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation from Nordies and the Beauty Blender that I picked up from Sephora that made the cut as well. After being such a MAC devotee (truth be told I still am) I always put my foundation trust in their hands, but this stuff is the bees knees! And is true to it’s name! One dime size will do. It spreads so evenly and gives all day wear at least up to 12 hours although they claim 16. My shade is Syracuse and it is spot on! And then there is the makeup artist’s secret weapon-one little egg shaped tool with a narrow tip made for the tightest of corners that belonged in my kit ages ago has finally made it’s way there! I’m set! For now. Shhhh…don’t tell but I have a Masterclass set for October 6 with Nars at Nordies. And we know where that leads……
Wishing you Love and Luxury,
