The festive season has a palpable sense of magic to it – the days are warmer, the streets are dressed and we spend more time with those we love. And after two years suspended in lockdown, the feeling is intensified, so this Christmas is set to be a memorable one.

Gifting can play a huge part in said magic, as a way to show those close to us just how much we care (also, a fresh lipstick/fragrance never hurt anyone!). With December just around the corner, we’re turning to the House of Dior and its Atelier of Dreams holiday collection to serve up some of the brightest beauty gifts this season. Keep reading to discover our favourites.


5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette Limited Edition, $121. SHOP NOW

Inspired by a starry winter sky, Dior’s limited holiday eye palettes bring just enough sparkle. Housed in a sleek black compact, the five shades have been hand-picked by creative and image director Peter Philips to complement each other perfectly, and enhance your natural eye colour. Choose from the warm, bronzed tones of Cosmic Eyes, or the cool silvers of Galactic.

Rouge Dior limited edition, $67. SHOP NOW

There’s lipstick, and then there’s Rouge Dior’s holiday iteration, a range of four limited shades dreamt up by Philips. Creamy, pigmented and comfortable on the lips, the long-wear formula holds up against drinking and dancing with ease. What’s more, the bullet itself is engraved with tiny stars and flowers, an awe-inspiring detail that renders the lipstick almost too perfect to use.

J’adore Parfum d’eau, $267. SHOP NOW

Made entirely from flowers and water, J’Adore Parfum D’eau is a light, luminous riff on the classic fragrance, and one that’s perfect for the summer months. As for the composition, think white, bright blooms: neroli, jasmine, magnolia. Surprisingly it’s got wonderful staying power (considering the formula is completely alcohol free) but there is a certain weightlessness to it’s that’s beautifully refreshing.


For the lipstick enthusiast, Dior’s minaudière clutch is an absolute delight. The tiny patent black ‘purse’ moonlights as a place to store your lipstick, holding three tubes of the iconic Rouge Dior formula. You can also detach a single case – perfect for touch-ups, or to wear around your neck all through party season.


Dior’s limited holiday advent calendar is akin to the shining star atop the Christmas tree. Designed by artist Pietro Ruffo, the calendar itself is decorated with a map of the night sky: constellations such as the The Big Dipper, the Lynx, Cepheus and Cassiopeia. But inside is where the real magic lies, 24 Dior beauty treasures, ranging from icons like Rouge Dior, to purse-sized bottles of J’adore. Enjoy all at once, or open up one window every day until Christmas.
