Look & Review: Dior Spring 2018 Makeup

Below you will find the Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balms - they added Holo and Matte shades to their already fantastic formulations. These are balms that are actually hydrating on top of having beautiful packaging. If you were to ask me if you needed to own all of them? My honest answer is no - but the true standouts will have to be the Matte Raspberry, Holo Purple and also Ultra Pink that gives a "my lips but better" look. These have helped my lips from peeling and I always make sure to keep one in my purse, my diaper bag, my beauty room and bathroom!

Another stand out is the Dior Nude Air Luminizer in Holo Pink - it offers a beautiful wash of highlight to your cheekbone, brow bone and inner corner. You can also apply this to your shoulders and color bone if you wish in the summer time for a glow! Use this sheered out or layered for a highlight you can see from space! It's finely milled, buttery and blends like a dream. It comes in two colors - Holo Pink (featured above in the swatch) and Holo Gold (which I want to own ASAP!)

When I received the new Dior Forever Undercover Foundation to try out, I had a feeling that it was slightly darker than what I was used to in other formulations of foundation from Dior. I have used Dior foundations for years and I was interested in doing a swatch comparison, side by side to see if this was true. I compared the two most recent foundations launched by Dior - the Star, Forever and this one Forever Undercover. As you can see, the Diorskin Forever Undercover is a shade darker than its current shades in other formulations - even after it has dried down, so I do recommend that you go one shade lighter, or get a sample to test out before purchasing the full bottle. 

This formula - the Forever Undercover, offers full coverage while feeling weightless on the skin. It has an ultra-thin consistency that blends like water and does not look or feel cakey on the skin. I was actually able to cover my dark circles as well - but I chose to use some concealer in the below two looks to brighten the under-eye. If you do not need brightening, then you can actually pass on needing concealer because it's that full coverage. On my oily-combo skin, this did not affect me negatively, it worked well and I found that this foundation actually wore better through the day and looked even more natural as time went by. This would be a great foundation for me for events and photographs as I typically gravitate to a sheer to medium buildable foundation. This will make you look flawless in photography if that's something you're looking for :)

For the above looks: 
Top Row I used Shade 1 in the inner half of the lid, shade 4 on the outer and 3 blended on the crease with Shade 2 in the inner corner and left the bottom lash line bare for a more natural daytime Spring look. On the lips I used 102 Matte Raspberry.

Bottom Row, I used Shade 4 on the inner half, Shade 5 on the outer half and 2 on the inner corner. I used Shade 4 on the outer bottom half of the lash line and Shade 1 for a pop of pink on the inner half of the lash line. On the lips I used 009 Holo Purple. 

The looks above were created with the above eyeshadow palette called the 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 667 - Flirt (swatches are also above). These shadows are actually very pigmented and deliver beautiful color payoff, a definite must have for spring!

These are all the products used to create the above looks - if you're interested in any specific product in the photo, please let me know! But they are honestly my go-to products that I have mentioned before :)

Until next time, XO - M.
