Dior Croisette Summer 2012 Collection

“On vacation, you can wear all the colorful and casual clothing that you like, but you must always be elegant,” said Christian Dior.

Inspired by the art de vivre of the French Riviera, the Dior Croisette Collection for Summer 2012 combines the peace of the French countryside with the splendor of Saint Tropez. These locations have always been a prolific source of inspiration for Christian Dior. From Dior’s first swimsuit collections and seaside fashion creations in the Fifties to the current Cruise Collections, the French Riviera also embodies the brand’s most daring, fresh and colorful lines today.

Take a look!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    The need I have for that balm cannot be put into words. I would cut someone for it if I had to. But not you ofcourse cuz ya know <3 lol

    The 2 nail polishes look really nice too, I never tried a Dior polish b4 tho.

    • the Muse

      LOL I understand completely and if you must I’ll sacrifice an arm ;-D they make a nice polish…I’m wearing the peachy shade on my toes at the moment ;-D lovely stuff. but I’m def NO expert in NP! haha!

      • Cj

        Lol awesome 🙂 Do you remember how many coats you had to do b4 it was fully opaque?

        • the Muse

          two coats and a top coat to seal ;-D color was true to the bottle after that!

  • Tammie

    Only thing I want is the balm still…phew! I hope my Sephora gets their Croisette display set up soon…they take quite some time getting new things in it seems!

    I wonder if the pink lip gloss is pretty opaque, it’s the only other thing that catches my eye.

  • Kim

    I like everything! Dior nail polishes are awesome; they have the best brush.

    My Sephora also seems to be slow about putting new stuff up too, Tammie. However, I did see most of these items at sephora.com this afternoon. Should I use my 15% off Chic Week coupon, for the third time, online? 🙂

    • Tammie

      Do it!!! Haha. I however, am not spending $50 right now (at least, not at Sephora…) even with the lip balm so I’m better off waiting. You won’t catch me paying for shipping xD

  • Sarah S.

    the starburst pattern on the palettes is so old-fashioned (in a great way)!

  • elle

    I really love the second eye shadow palette! I just wish it wasn’t shimmery/glittery.

    • nawi

      yes you do I luckly own it and love it even though I have brown eyes the contrast is great!
