Dior Diorific Minuit #995 - Swatches and Review

Nothing to Disclose
*This product may NOT be Cruelty Free 

Dior Diorific Minuit #995

Golden Winter for Winter/Holiday 2013

Dior Diorific Minuit #995, from the Golden Winter Collection - Dior Winter/Holiday 2013, is deep, vampy purple-hued red crelly with red glass flecks and gold shimmer throughout. The formula was amazing. Smooth and easy and I really love the brush on these "ornament" bottles. Two coats for full opacity and one coat of top coat for the photos (except where indicated.)

There are three other polishes in the Golden Winter Collection, in addition to a Jewel Manicure Duo. The other shades are Winter #128, Frimas #318 and a re-promote of Marilyn #751 that I reviewed here from last year. $26.00.

The Jewel Manicure Duo is Bijou Base Vernis and Perles Cristal - a golden polish/base and micro-pearls for a unique 3D manicure. $39.00.

I know some people aren't a fan of these round Dior "ornament" bottles but I love them. I wish all Dior polishes came in these bottles with this brush! This one is equally pretty with or without top coat and in the sun or shade. Two thumbs up on this one for sure.

What do you think? Will you be getting this one? Or any of the other 3? The Jewel Manicure Duo? I will definitely be getting Frimas and I already have Marilyn. I'll probably skip the Duo.

This collection is popping up across the US at Dior counters - since October. My store doesn't have them yet, but I was able to get this one on-line at You can also keep purchase through I just ordered Frimas from there myself.

  1. This one will absolutely be mine!! I love it! Gorgeous pics!

  2. Rich, gorgeous, but pricey! Beautiful pics.

  3. Such a perfect color for the holidays. I just ordered Minuit and Frimas from Macy's - I'm not normally a sucker for packaging but these little bottles were just too special to pass up :)

  4. This one kind of reminds me a bit of Elevation Toubkal.
