Dior Golden Jungle Collection: Photos and Swatches of Dior Vernis in Amazonia, Bengale; Dior Addict Wild, Daring

How luxe and elegant is this promo shot for Dior's Autumn Collection, Golden Jungle? As a big fan of smoky khaki shades, I couldn't wait to clap eyes on this collection.

The Golden Jungle and 5-Couleurs eyeshadow palette are the stars of the show here - they both contain a selection of matte and shimmer shadows in browns, golds and khakis. I'll be visiting them ASAP at my nearest Dior counter.

There's also been a lot of buzz about the Crocodile Leather Effect nail duo, €32, which includes a gold base coat and a khaki crackle topcoat. My preference though is for the two new earthy, sophisticated shades of Dior Vernis,  in Amazonia (the green) and Bengale (the brown), which as luck would have it, I was kindly sent by the brand.

Dior polishes never disappoint - the formula is exceptionally good, the colours are generally lovely and the brush is fab. These two cremes are no exception - but they're €23.50, and my one reservation is that the colours aren't particularly unique for such a high pricepoint. But if you do have the money to spare, the quality is really superb.  

I was also sent the two new shades of Dior Addict lipstick, in Wild and Daring.  I like both of these a lot - Wild is a bronzey nude shot through with gold shimmer, and Daring is a pretty, sheer berry colour. They're both shiny, glossy and lovely, and they're €31 each. A rosewood and red are also available.
Golden Jungle is available at Dior counters nationwide from tomorrow, August 10th. Anything calling your name?

I love those nail colours for autumn, so classy! Although it would be hard to justify spending 23.50 on a nail polish! I'd have to be mad about it!

Dior always get's it right! From the advertising to packaging and colors. There are a lot of green colors in the Fall forecast, so I'm happy to see it in this collection. LOVE the lip colors.

Bengale is calling my name, but sorry baby, I've just answered to Particulière by Chanel, your worthy rival. Perhaps next month.... Thanks for sharing Emma, your beauty tips are greatly appreciated. xo
