Greetings, my fellow makeup enthusiasts! Putting Chanel Beauty and their controversial advent calendar aside, today let’s take a closer look at what the Dior Beauty team is offering for the holiday season!
After all, Dior has a long history of delivering awe-inspiring holiday makeup releases that make for perfect gifts wrapped under a Christmas tree or cozily tucked inside a stocking.
The Dior Holiday 2021 collection in particular is a truly special one as it celebrates the brand’s long history in haute couture. For more than seventy years, couture has played an important role in the legacy of Christian Dior and it’s wonderful to pay homage to such a beloved tradition with a collection of makeup that brings to life the very essence of Dior.
Entitled “Atelier of Dreams”, the makeup collection features Dior’s famous couture house imprinted on a limited edition blush as well as an assortment of lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes.
Dior Holiday 2021 Atelier of Dreams Collection
In its entirety, the Dior Holiday 2021 Atelier of Dreams collection includes:
- Two Atelier of Dreams eyeshadow quints (Warm and Cool-Toned)
- Limited Edition Rouge Dior Lipsticks (5 Shades, including signature 999)
- Limited Edition Diorific Lipsticks (4 Shades)
- Atelier of Dreams Blush in a Soft Glimmering Pink
- Dior Écrin Couture Lip, Cheek and Eye Palette
- Nail Lacquer (Red and Burgundy)
- Glittery Gold Nail Topper
- Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara Set
The Dior Holiday 2021 lineup really is one of the most beautiful collections to arrive this giving season. By design, it celebrates the house’s legacy of couture but it does so in a way that also invokes the spirit of elegance we all know and love from Dior. Perfect for a little holiday glow! x
Dior Holiday 2021 Eyeshadow Palette
Embracing the glitziness of the season, the Dior Holiday 2021 eyeshadow palettes are undeniably perfect for festive celebrations. They will also be perfecting for adding a touch of dazzle to the eyes in the winter months ahead – offsetting the bleak gray days of January and February.
The Dior Atelier of Dreams collection includes two limited edition quints:
- 469 ATELIER DORÉ: Warm taupe browns and a glittery gold
- 739 HOUSE OF DREAMS: Luminous taupe, brown, dusty pink and a shimmering silver
Both quints feature classic shades that bring a regal elegance to the eye lids. They’re not loud. They’re not flashy. Instead? They’re timeless shades that bring glimmer to your eyes in a way that pairs beautifully with a signature red lip. Trés chic, indeed!
Dior Holiday 2021 Eyeshadow Palette 469
Considering that eyeshadow is among my biggest weakness, it was just a matter of time before a Dior Holiday 2021 eyeshadow palette was in my hands. As a sucker for gold, I opted for the warm toned palette and gosh it’s beautiful.
Compact and Travel Ready
In addition to being a major fan of Dior’s eyeshadow formula in general, I am very drawn to the compactness of the Atelier of Dreams quints compared to much larger palettes that live in my collection.
The Dior Holiday 2021 eyeshadow palette is a great one for travel and I already see it becoming a go-to staple when I want an effortless makeup look that while beautiful – doesn’t require much time. The quint is also compact enough that you can easily toss it in a handbag for application on-the-go when necessary.
Soft, Smooth and Easily Blendable
Existing fans will be pleased to know the Dior Holiday 2021 eyeshadow palette features the same super blendable formula we’ve come to know and love from the quint palettes. Compared to the somewhat dryer Dior Backstage eyeshadows, the quint shades have a buttery softness to them that makes for beautiful application across the lid.
The shadows apply evenly with a brush as well as a finger and blend with ease. Easy as can be!
Long-Lasting and Pigmented Shadows
Where Chanel eyeshadow seems to love leading a disappearing act on the eyes, Dior’s formula is a long-wearing one. When worn atop a primer or concealer, you can rely on Dior’s eyeshadows to stay put throughout the full day.
The shadows also have a nice amount of pigment to them in general, but the deeper shades of the Dior Holiday 2021 eyeshadow palette? Wow. They are bold! Be sure to apply and blend with a light touch.

Dior Holiday 2021 Iconic Overcurl Mascara Gift Set
As a longtime fan of Iconic Overcurl, it’s always a delight when a gift set for one of my most favorite mascaras becomes available. These sets are priced the same as a full-sized mascara ($29) but always include a bonus for the eyes.
Sometimes the bonus will be a miniature eye palette but for the Dior Holiday 2021 Atelier of Dreams collection, the mascara (which received an update in 2020) is accompanied by a deluxe size sample of Dior’s 3D Lash Primer Serum. That is especially wonderful news for those who want lush and full lashes — without going the artificial route.
If you’re not yet tried Dior’s Iconic Overcurl mascara, you are in for a real treat! It provides such a beautiful curl to the lashes (hence the name) that stays put from dawn to dusk. It’s been a regular in my makeup collection for years now and I always keep one on standby in the wings so I’m never without.
The Mascara Basics
- Formulated with K-Polymer to coat the lashes and create an intense amount of curve
- Enriched with cotton nectar to strengthen lashes and prevent breakage
- Lifting formula adds a lot of height while lengthening lashes
- Flake-free and smudge-proof formula
- Fluffy brush applicator builds volume
Where to Buy the Set?
Currently, the limited edition Atelier of Dreams Iconic Overcurl set is exclusively available at Dior.com. The mascara is widely available wherever Dior Makeup is sold.
