Dior – Bengale

Dior Golden Jungle Collection has been out since mid August in the UK.  I’ve been eying up most of the collection I will admit, its lovely and autumnal with a hint of gold.  There are three polishes in this collection, a lovely Crocodile Crackle Duo (Ltd Edition), a dark green (Amazonia) and today’s lovely Bengale.

Like all new Dior editions, Bengale comes with the new standard Dior brush.  I know lots of people have issues with this, I don’t.  I love the wide brush and find it has the right thickness to coat my nail in just over two coats.  The brush is curved at the end and I find this means I can leave a small gap between nail paint and my cuticles.  I’d be interested to know in what you guys think of the brush.

Anyway, onto the colour.  Bengale is a lovely rich, dark brown.  I know that sounds boring, but it really isn’t.  Its a lovely rich creme that glides onto the nail.  I wasn’t convinced with the promo shots and it is a bit darker than on the Dior website.  Once I saw it in real life, it was my first go to purchase from the collection.

I really love Dior polishes, I know for £18 they are a bit steep, but the colour saturation is excellent.  The quality of the formula is amazing.  And the wear of the polish is also fabulous.  I would snap this up if you have no browns in your collection, as a reddy/brown pale Celt, its fab against my skin tone.

In the UK, Dior can be bought from large Department Stores and large Boots stores.  Price point is £18.  Its worth noting that is was a Selfridges exclusive for the first few weeks and you can buy items online there.

  4. I’ve never tried a Dior polish, but that certainly looks like a really saturated brown.


  5. I’m not really into brown but this looks really interesting!
