Quick Review: Dior Spring 2015

Thursday, January 15, 2015

Another day, another new series! I've been trying to update my blog and my posts a little bit, and introducing a couple of new series' to keep you guys entertained ;)

I'll be doing quick reviews of products that I think are interesting (and ones that I hope you find interesting as well), and popular, just like the products I'll be reviewing in this week's 'Quick Review'.
These are a couple of products that I received from the Dior Spring 2015 collection, called the 'Kingdom of Colors' collection.

I received two cheek products; the 'Cheek & Lip Glow' and the Diorblush in 'Cherry Glory'.

Cheek & Lip Glow - this is a neon pink coloured, lightweight liquid stain. It's very subtle, and a few layers are required to get a lovely pink glow. I personally think this is a fantastic product because it is foolproof - you can never over-apply this and it blends really well into the skin without my needing to smooth it in too much or too long - and it's long-lasting. The only thing you need to take note of is that this is a liquid product, and therefore it won't blend well with powder. If you're using a powder to set your makeup, use this product before applying your powder. If you're using a powder foundation, I wouldn't recommend using this product with it because it's too light to be used under the powder foundation, but too liquid-y to be used on top of a powder.
I find that this product works best on the lips; it gives my lips a beautiful pink stain that looks both pretty and natural - and I used it on my lips in the picture below.

Diorblush in 'Cherry Glory' - at first glance, I was a little intimidated by this blush, but if my experience with makeup has taught me anything, it's that looks can be deceiving. I tried it out, and that bright orange actually does wonders for the complexion! I would recommend it for almost any skin type, but I think it would work particularly well on darker skins. Dior does have a knack for producing beautiful colours that flatter the skin tone really well, and I like this one just as well as I like almost every other Dior blush I own. Plus, my gosh look at the impressions on the blush! So pretty 0.0

I also received their brand new It-Lash Mascara in It-Violet, which is a fun, striking shade, though a wee bit impractical for everyday use. I haven't tried many Dior mascaras (only the Diorshow, which used to be one of my favourites), but I did love that it plumped up my lashes quite a bit. The colour of this particular mascara is quite subtle (as you can see in the picture below), so it can be a fun little punch of colour to add to your look without being too 'out there'. Personally, I love my black mascaras and that will never change (the same way I will always choose black eyeliner over any other colour), but it's something fun to have on days when I'm trying to create a different look.

Dior has also released limited edition Rouge Baumes, which I didn't receive, but I have tried these balm-lipstick-hybrids, and I used one in the look I photographed below. I used the colour 'Star', which was released before this collection, on top of the Lip & Cheek Glow. These feel lovely and creamy on the lips, and provide just a tiny hint of colour, much like the coloured lip balms that most brands on the market have in their product lineup at the moment. It gives your lips a hint of glossiness too, which I personally love, because gloss gives your lips that extra bit of oomph and makes them look plumper.

I used these products in a look I wore out the other day, and this is what they look like:

Dior Star Foundation in 020, Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Taupe, Dior Mono Fusion Eyeshadow, Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Eyeliner, Dior It-Lash Mascara in It-Violet, Diorblush in Cherry Glory, Dior Cheek & Lip Glow in the centre of the lips, Dior Rouge Baume in Star over entire lip.

The Dior Kingdom of Colours Spring 2015 collection is on counters now.
