I've heard amazing things about Dior cosmetics (especially their foundations and eyeshadows) so I thought I'd treat myself and my kit with a few bits since I got myself a good deal since (a couple of products were christmas limited editions!)
1) Couture Creations Palette from the Dior Holiday Couture Collection (the big palette)
2) 508 'Nude Pink Design' 5 Couleurs Designer Eyeshadow Palette (left)
3) 758 'Golden Shock' 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette (right) - discontinued :(
4) '31 Sand' Dior Skin Forever Foundation
5) '002 Amber' Dior Skin Nude Tan Sun Powder
- Couture Creations Palette, 508 'Nude Pink Design' 5 Couleurs Designer + 758 'Golden Shock' 5 Eyeshadow Palettes
All I can say is WOW! I haven't got round to trying absolutely every shade from all 3 palettes but the ones I've tried so far are beyond pigmented! Im more of a fan of darker so thats always the biggest test when I'm searching for new eyeshadows, and all of them did not disappoint. My personal favourite is the dark purple from the Golden Shock palette, it comes out as such a rich dark purple colour - LOVE.
Just to show how great their pigment is I mixed and matched the shades from the shadow palettes in both pics
I wasn't quite sure how to use the sparkly eyeshadows because when I swatched them on my hand they came out quite subtle - I was really expecting them to be super bright and sparkly but I was disappointed. The trick is to use an eye primer/base first and then pat the shadow on again and again until its popping. I've used the gold one in the above pic.. was so much brighter in real life!
These palettes are perfect for bridal make up, the shades just blend so well and they go on so smoothly. The 'Nude Pink Design Palette' also comes with a deep purple cream base so you can really deepen any shade you want and make it so much more pigmented, can't wait to experiment with more colours!
Highlighter (from holiday palette)
Not a huge fan, too glittery for my liking. If only it didn't put huge glitter particles in there, it would have been a lovely everyday highlighter.
Lipsticks (from holiday palette)
I'm not too keen on one of the colours (reddy pink) but I can tell by just swatching it on my hand that its really moisturising and quite a nice everyday lipstick as it isn't too much in your face. Its from the 'Rouge' collection.
I don't wear much gloss but the gloss in this palette is something else! I don't know why it looks so amazing on as it just looks like any old lipgloss you could buy from Boots or Superdrug, but there is something about Dior Addict Gloss which has got me obsessed. Just wear it on its own, you'll see why!
- Dior Skin Forever Foundation
This stuff is like SILK in a bottle! it claims it leaves 'a luminous matte finish, flawless correction and exceptional comfort, in all conditions'. I 100% agree. As I've already mentioned my skin is going through a rough journey at the moment, so being a make up artist I need to find the best foundation thats ideal for my annoying skin at the moment. It really helps even out my skin tone (due to acne scarring) without having to cake it on. Would definitely recommend for acne prone skin or to cover acne scars.
- Skin Nude Tan Sun Powder
I don't use blusher/bronzers these days because I really feels like it makes my spots look worse so I haven't tried it yet but I'm hoping to use it once my skin is a little more settled. Will review this product once I use it!
