Dior Colour Gradation - Spring 2017 Collection Review and Swatches*

This Spring, Dior brings to you a few new and super gorgeous and glowing highlighters - they are the Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powders - ($68/each). I received shade 002 - a light pearlescent pink toned highlight and shade 003 a golden champagne toned one. In the swatch pictures below, that is only with one finger swipe. I found that through my application trials, the best way to put this powder on your cheeks is honestly with the kabuki brush they included. I know that most brands, when they include brushes, it's a waste of space - but this one is so densely packed with care that it's all in all a quality product. I like to apply this to my cheekbone as well as on the brow bone and an inner eye highlight. I've used the golden champagne shade as an all over lid color as well :) 


The extreme weather we've been having this winter has left my lips dry, cracked and peeling. And to be honest, applying lipstick on them, especially liquid or matte lipsticks might not be so appealing if you do not properly care for and prep them first. The Dior Addict Lip Sugar Scrub Sweet Exfoliating Balm (left - $41)  is a nourishing lip balm that contains actual grains of sugar that help to gently exfoliate the lips. The sugar of course leaves a sweet taste to your lips but if you wanted to, you can just leave your lips as is after this treatment. You do not actually see the granules on your lips after - it just leaves a light shine to the lips and you feel them moisturized and soft. 

Next, if you are familiar with the other three colors that were previously released for the Dior Addict Lip Glow ($41), you will be pleased to know that they have added one more color to their family, a plum berry shade called Berry. I've been using the original for a few years now, and and really want to add Lilac to my collection.

Above I have the Sugar Scrub on my lips with Diorskin Air Luminizer Powder in 001 (look at that glow! It's with one sweep (dry, not applied with a damp brush).

The Dior Matte Lipsticks are unlike any matte lipsticks I've tried - while Matte, they are actually so smooth, so weightless and literally just glides on like butter. It doesn't dry out your lips, it doesn't settle and crack and it's pigmented. One swipe, not patchy at all. I HIGHLY suggest that you go try these out! I was sent two shades to try, one a pink brown toned shade called Insolent 745 (left in the swatch pic below) and a true brown in 990 Chocolate (right).

I really wish that I could pinpoint on ONE specific product to get, but I don't think I can this time. The matte lipsticks are truly revolutionary in its formulation so you must try those, and the highlighters are really beautiful - so I'd say definitely give those two a try ASAP :) 

Until next time, XO - M.
