Happy Monday! Dior came up with a cool new color exclusively for Nordstrom called Lemon Balm. I have no clue what the name has to do with the color since it’s not “lemony” at all, but it IS incredible either way and I totally heart it! Peep it out!
Lemon Balm in sun
Sweeeeeeet isn’t it? Dior describes the color as being a purple platinum, but honestly I don’t really see that here. It is really hard to describe though. The base is like a plum mixed with brown. What makes this color truly spectacular is the shimmery finish which has gold, pink and green all mixed in.
Lemon Balm in shade
As you can see, this isn’t one that looks even remotely blackened in the shade or indoors. It’s dark and totally perfect for fall and what I like the most is that its unusual and not like anything else I already have. The formula was really nice and smooth, nothing to complain about and this was perfect in just two coats.

As I mentioned, this color is a Nordstrom exclusive so if you want it, you can find it here. The price is expensive, as you would expect from Dior at $20.00 per bottle and Dior bottles are smaller than the average at just 0.33 oz compared to most which are 0.5 oz.
