In many ways, Dior was my big introduction to high-end beauty products. When I was a kid, I fell in love with the brand's Hypnotic Poison perfume while browsing my mom's fashion magazines, and once I was old enough to afford my own fancy makeup, I'd drive myself the hour and a half back to Atlanta from my college town to visit the Dior beauty counter at my favorite mall. Everything about Dior's cosmetics line delighted me, from the beautiful, elaborate packaging to the candy-colored glosses. The brand was also my gateway drug to luxury skincare products, which my face appreciates but my wallet does not.
A decade later, I'm still a huge fan and regular user of many Dior products, and because beauty rivals handbags when it comes to things I could talk about endlessly, I've created a little primer on my favorite products from my all-time favorite beauty brand. Check out my picks below or shop the full line via Dior.com.
Christian Dior Ambre Nuit Parfum
$210 via Dior
Everyone's familiar with Dior's most famous and widely available fragrances like Miss Dior and J'Adore, but the brand's website offers a full complement of the brand's perfumes, including this warm scent from La Collection Privée.
Dior Addict Lip Glow
$33 via Dior
This balm is one of the most beloved products in Dior's entire line; it's moisturizing and nourishing, and beyond that, it also gives your lips the glow the name promises and enhances the natural color of your lips.
Dior Cheek and Lip Glow

Because of this product's double use and easy application, it's a perfect option to have in your purse for an after-work touchup before dinner
Dior Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara
$29.50 via Dior
Diorshow is a mascara that requires no explanation—it's that famous and well-regarded. This version provides maximum volume and curl, which really help achieve that false-lashes look.
Dior Eye Reviver Illuminating Neutrals Eye Palette
$62 via Dior
In my opinion, Dior's eyeshadow palettes are one of the most underrated things about the brand's entire beauty line. This neutral set gives you tons of versatility in one easy-to-carry package, which makes it another smart pick for traveling or touch-ups in particular.
Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Silk Creme
$60 via Dior
Dior Rouge Dior Brillant Lip Gloss
$35 via Dior
This perennially highly rated gloss has a bunch of things working in its favor: a range of wearable everyday colors, a higher color payoff than most glosses
Dior Vernis Nail Lacquer in Junon
$27 via Dior
It's hard to imagine a nail polish being blue and also being neutral and subtle, but this shade manages to make that all happen in a single, beautiful color.
Dior Diorskin Nude Skin Glowing Makeup SPF15
$50 via Dior
This light to medium coverage foundation gets consistently high marks from reviewers for its natural, dewy finish and ease of everyday wear. Plus, sunscreen!
Dior Diorsnow Global Anti-Spot and Brightening Serum
$165 via Dior
This serum is pricy and it promises to do some things that a lot of products fail to deliver on, but we're here to tell you the money is worth it because it works. If you have dark spots or discolorations you're hoping to fade, or even if you're just hoping to fight unevenness and balance your skin tone overall, this will help.
