Fragrances -Dior -Dior Addict EDP

foto

Dark sexy and smokey from the same sort of stable as Gucci Rush, but not so pungently patchouli and sandal wood musky, I loved this from the first squirt, so to speak and often wore each in succession to work out which I liked more: this one won in the end. Not perky enough for a daytime scent unless you Really are a famous Courtesan, but for the rest of us mere mortals a tiny bit of this goes a long way and adds to the seductive arsenal.

Since my last bottle finished and I ran out of eligible men to buy it for me, the last time I looked it seemed to have spawned a huge array of mini-me variants, so much so I was quite bewildered as to which was the original. An airport departure lounge habitually late (as ever) is not the best place to exercise one's olfactory senses. Shortly after, that I lost my sense of smell in a car accident, but would cheerfully wear this again as I L O V E D it. God knows what I'm going to do if they stop making my favourites - there are no plans to cancel this, Guerlain's Mitsouko/Shalimar or YSL's Rive Gauche are there? You see, the 21st century has scarcely troubled me!

Mascara -Dior -Diorshow Iconic Extreme (Waterproof)

foto

I hated this mascara, the Diorshow Iconic OVERCURL WATERPROOF is heaps better than this mascara. The formula of this mascara is really wet and does not hold a curl at all. If you try building it up it will clump together. It also took forever to dry because it was so wet. You curled your lashed really well and applied the first coat and it already has flopped down. Even after 5 minutes when the mascara has dried your lashes will still feel really sticky n rubbery like it's been coated. I looked at the package ingredients and lord behold it is not waterproof. Water is the first ingredient. With true waterproof mascaras normally wax is the first ingredient to appear on the list. I was so disappointed and was misled. With the Overcurl waterproof formula, Isodecane (wax) is the first ingredient so i know straight away that it will hold a curl and is waterproof. The only good thing about this mascara is the brush- the plastic bristles gets into every lash.

Like the previous reviewer i bought Diorshow Iconic waterproof mascara because apparently Miss Meghan Markle wore it on her wedding day. It's a little confusing but there's 2 types of Iconic mascara- the original Iconic mascara with the rubbery bristles which is this one and the Overcurl version which is the spoon curve shaped brush. I ended up buying both in waterproof to see which was better and i have to say the Overcurl version is heaps better than this one. And i'm more inclined to say that miss Markle probably used the Overcurl version on her wedding day. She has been quoted in previous interview that she likes this mascara but maybe I'm thinking they confused this mascara with the other Iconic Overcurl mascara. The Overcurl version has a stronger, drier formula and dries really fast and holds the curl too. Stick with Diorshow Iconic OVERCURL WATERPROOF mascara.

Liquid -Dior -Diorskin Forever Undercover Foundation

Forever Undercover gives me excellent coverage. It lasts for over 12 hours on my skin which is about as good as any foundation coverage I've personally come across. However on the t-zone I do need to touch up with a powder by mid-afternoon or at the very least use some blotting sheets. I can build to full coverage where needed or keep it as sheer as I want and because the pigment is quite concentrated I never have to use much, meaning I can see this lasting a while. Personally I prefer to apply it without a primer as it goes on better for me and you don’t need to use a setting powder, unless you really need that extra longevity.
The number of shades in the range (26) means it caters to most skin tones - whether you have beige, peach or yellow undertones you should be able to find a close match. A couple of my friends (with completely opposite skin tones) have visited the Dior counter and found a good match quite easily.

As it's quite a weightless formula I often feel like I haven't applied anything to my face. However I cannot use it daily due to the silicone content (bane of my life and in so many products nowadays). Nevertheless I highly recommended it, especially if you are fine with silicones, as the vast majority of people are.

Lipstick -Dior -Ultra Rouge

on 11/11/2018 4:22:00 AM

What is going on with Dior's development and marketing teams? This is advertised as a 12-hour, long-wearing lipstick, but instead it's a smeary, high-transfer and short-lived mess. Their lacquer stick was bizarrely short-lasting and was so scented it was unusable. Again, the matte liquid lipstick faded and looked awful within an hour.
I used to be a Dior lip product devotee and would stockpile if they discontinued. The cost-use balance made it worthy. But why would you pay $35 CAN for a "12-hour" lipstick that smears off when you drink a coffee? Thank goodness I used Shoppers points.
This is a big miss for me. I have Ultra Crave, a lovely berry red, and I'm disappointed it didn't work. I get it if an advertised long-wearing lipstick fades during the day or after you eat a greasy salad, but this one is dismal.
Try Revlon's Ultra Suede lipsticks for a cheaper option that lasts and doesn't look dry. Should have stuck with that!
