Dior "Mitzah Bricard" Limited Edition Collection

Mitzah Bricard, an influential figure in the creation of the House of Dior, initiated one of the most emblematic Dior codes : the famous Jungle panther print.
The Mitzah Collection, extremely limited and individually numbered is today a tibute to Christian Dior's famous Muse.


The Mitzah collection consists of two nail polishes : Camel and Ebony and a Jungle palette.

622 Camel is a tan nude shade, unlike anything in my stash. If you've read my other Dior reviews, you pretty much understood by now that this is a "faux-creme" too, a creme with the slightest sparse silver shimmer.
Application was pretty good, two easy coats for full coverage. I tried to find something I could compare it to but unfortunately I came up empty handed; I decided to show it to you next to OPI San Tan-tonio and to a couple of Chanel nudes but none were close enough to justify nail swatch.
I didn't think I'd like Camel when I first saw the promo pics, I always end up being disappointed by those nudes when I wear them, they clash against my skin tone but this time, I can truly say that I love it!

912 Ebony is a dark dusty brown, actually the best way to describe it would be as a dark taupe, think OPI's famous You Don't Know Jacques but darker. Same thing as Camel in terms of finish and application so I just won't repeat that.
Once again, I couldn't think of any dupe and I must say that I'm really happy to have found YDNJ's older brother! I can already hear you wondering how it compares to the recent Dior Underground but I'm sorry to disappoint (or not actually) they are nothing alike, Underground has a plum/brown base while Ebony is a true taupe. I decided to throw OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys, Essie Little Brown Dress and Chanel Imperial in the bottle comparison as well but you'll see that they are all way warmer.

And because I just couldn't end this review without showing you the palette (I know, I know... I'm only a nail polish blogger, lol), here it is, with a little Mitzah Jungle nail art :

  5. @rmcandlelight (nailsbeautiqued) No, that's not me, it's from the Dior card inside the palette, the mystery remains LOL ;-)
    @Rianne I really have no idea... I know they are ultra limited but that's all I know for sure :'( I wanted to swatch them anyway to give everyone an idea of what they look like.
    @Une Ruxi � Paris The jungle palette is supposed to be an eye shadow palette but I heard it could be used as a bronzer too.

  8. Super jealous that you can get a hold of the Dior eyeshadow palette early. I live the US, so Dior isn't releasing it here until the Fall.

    I hope the Mitzah palette works as a bronzer too. *fingers crossed* =)
