As of late, Dior has risen to the top of my favourite beauty brands. High quality products and a great selection of colours means I get excited every time something new comes out. Here I wanted to share some of their new launches for spring 2013 (some are available now, some will be out soon). Take a look:
Dior Addict Gloss ($31) – These glosses glide on so smoothly and are surprisingly not very sticky. They provide high shine, lots of shimmer, and light colour. I fell in love the first time I put one of these one – the shades that I tried give an appearance of diamonds on your lips (not over the top). These glosses come in 24 shades with 3 special effects: Shimmer (gives off a star effect), Pearly (with extremely fine mother of pearl particles) and Pure (like a shot of pigment). Read on for swatches of the shades (the Dior Addict “It Shades”) that I tried.
Dior Vernis Sparkling Shine ($24, Limited Edition) – Dior also came out with 4 new shades of their iconic nail polish to match the 4 “It Shades” of the Dior Addict Gloss. These polishes are high pigment with a hint of shimmer, and they match perfectly with the 4 glosses.
Dior Vernis Gel Coat ($24) – First off, I really have to start by saying this stuff is ah-mazing. It makes your nails look so shiny and strong, like you had just gotten a gel manicure. I’m obsessed!
Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick & Dior Addict Lipstick ($31) – Dior has also come out with 4 shades of their Dior Addict Lipstick and Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick (Limited Edition) to match up with the 4 “It Shades.” The Extreme versions pack a little more of a colour punch but both are lovely once applied. I was impressed by how moisturizing these were as well.
Miss Dior Eau de Toilette ($80/50 ml) – Miss Dior Eau de Toilette is the newest member of the Miss Dior family. This lovely perfume is has notes of blood orange, Turkish rose, gardenia and jasmine, and is built on a base of Indonesian patchouli for a scent that is a lighter version of the original Miss Dior.
“I wanted to create Miss Dior so I could see my dresses float out of the bottle one after the other, dressing women in a trail of desire.” – Christian Dior
Diorsnow White Reveal Moisturizing Lotion 1 – Fresh ($55, available May 2013) – Dior is launching their new Diorsnow skincare collection which features Icelandic Glacial Water technology – this rare water is comes from the heart of Iceland’s thousand year old glaciers and is known to have whitening powers. This lotion comes in more of a liquid form and is applied with a cotton pad. It refines pores and brightens the skin for a natural radiance.
