Just disappointed. Clumpy and the texture is what has turned me off from this mascara.

I tried the non-waterproof version and was sold upon looking at my lashes. Thick and black were my lashes. Loved it. I ended up buying the waterproof. The consistency and the color were totally different. Clumpy lashes. Lashes every which way but loose. Not as black as I want.


Foundations -Dior -Backstage Face and Body Foundation

I really wanted to like the Dior BackStage Face and Body Foundation, as I see from other reviews so many others do.  If you wear this you will find that it applies easily and very nicely, looks like real skin, and lasts all day without starting to look greasy.  The shade range is also AMAZING!  They have forty different shades, which is amazing selection.  For many reasons I wanted to love this foundation.   The finish is medium coverage but since the formula is so thin it can be built up very quickly.  It  is a very liquid consistency. 

For me, with dry and sensitive skin, I used this without reading the ingredient list like I always do to give each product a fair unbiased try.  The third day using this my skin started to get dry and flaky and started to become very sensitive after washing the foundation off.  Doing my skincare routine at night after the third day I could tell my skin was slightly burning and just irritated to the point where I couldn't use most of my normal products because my skin was so irritated

This is because the third ingredient in the Dior BackStage Face and Body Foundation is denatured alcohol.  Denatured alcohol in larger amounts causes free radical damage and even can cause cell death.  This is something that we should be trying to avoid if and when possible.  I wish DIOR would have used almost any other ingredient other than this.  To top this off this product also contains fragrance, another ingredient that can cause irritation.  

**If you like the look and feel of this foundation I HIGHLY recommend you try a sample of the BareMinerals BarePro Foundation, I find the wear of both of these to be similar, except the BareMinerals formula does not contain denatured alcohol or fragrance.  My more detailed video review and swatch can be seen here:

Mascara -Dior -Diorshow Pump'N'Volume Mascara

I'm reviewing the waterproof version. I never bothered with the regular version because I knew it wouldn't work on my Asian lashes. Anyway the waterproof formula is really thick and creamy and dry. Strange because the testers for the waterproof mascara in store was really wet and when I opened mine it was really dry. It does add good volume if you build it up and holds up my curl. What I didn't like was how "heavy" my lashes felt because of the thick dry formula. I wished they made it more wet and thinner because it would of worked so well with the brush- the brush is really good its rubbery and spiky which will add volume and separate at the same time. Maybe if you have longer fluffy lashes you will enjoy this more but it didn't work for me.

Lip Treatments -Dior -Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm

Hyped for a reason:
- Lovely emollient formula with decent staying power, my lips feel pampered
- pleasant vanillic scent, not lingering or overwhelming
- soft satin finish
- subtle color enhancing effect on my rather pigmented lips
- very pretty as well as sturdy packaging
I recently bought several more shades besides the original pink and I love them all.
Not cheap at $34 but for me the Dior Glow Balms are a pleasure to use and the formula is definitely much superior to Chapstick or the likes.

sis.... let me tell you... the hype is totally justified.

it exfoliates, hydrates, and leaves a gorgeous tint on your lips??? sick

this is perfect for my I Can't Be Arsed To Do Makeup days, which is almost every day, ever, so I love this.

Lips -Dior -Addict Lacquer Plump

on 6/15/2018 3:12:00 PM

foto

I purchased Sweet-D (a Sephora exclusive color), Diorly, and Dior Lovely and they're great. Admittedly, the plumping part of their name is slightly misleading - they aren't going to be tingle-y like the lip maximizer - they contain hyaluronic acid to "plump" the lips with added moisture. The're pigmented so well that I only use a little bit and the color lingers after the lacquer fades away. If they expand their line, I'll be purchasing more.

Fragrances -Dior -Poison

Vintage Poison is to die for. It is my all-time favorite. I have over 100 perfumes right now on a mission to find something similar. I have bought the 4711, Incanto, and several others that were recommended but nothing even remotely close to vintage poison. I hate what they have done to it through the numerous reformulations. I saw on the Dior site over the weekend that there is a Poison Exlir on there for 199.00 for 0.5 oz! It is probably the best thing since sliced bread. lol

The only place I can find original Poison is ebay and you can expect to pay around $200 for the larger bottle (or more). I am still desperately seeking something similar. I just ordered Thierry Mugler original cologne. There just HAS to be a perfume in this day that is as long lasting and similar notes.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime, ebay it is.

Highlighters -Dior -Nude air luminizer

I bought this in shade 001 and it is lovely. I swipe a small amount on my cheeks, nose, under my brows and above my lips.Being 56, I didn't want any thing that would accentuate my creases and I didn't want it to be in your face either. It its perfect, sitting at my friend's home she asked if I had something on my skin that made the sun shimmer or did my skin just naturally look that way? It worked exactly how I wanted it to work, it's worth the money and I'll repurchase for sure. I highly recommend.

A lot of people think these are just glorified, expensive Chapstick...well, I love them! I have picked up 3 recently(pink, lilac, matte raspberry), and I love them all.. The matte raspberry is literally a smoother, more comfortable feeling cool toned fuschisa/pink balm, that happens to last due to the matte finish.. I will definitely repurchase this one, and would repurchase all of them, as well as planning on trying more colors. They are super moisturizing and smooth, and don't ever come off in chunks or break like cheap balms... Yep, they cost $34 each, I'm fine with that! I spend my $ on things that bring me joy, and these do... It's nice pulling out a pretty CD tube too💋❣

Highlighters -Dior -Shimmer Powder 002 Amber Diamond, Spring 08 [DISCONTINUED]

on 6/11/2018 1:11:00 AM

I like it, but as a wrote on my Rose Diamond's review, if you don't apply it in a gentle way, it looks too metallic, and I consider use it as a blush.
The coverage is buildable but the product texture is thicker than Guerlain Les meteorites, for example.
The product is soft, well pigmented, with a divine packaging,that surprisingly doesn't include a brush or any application accesory.
I would buy it again (I think its new name is Nude Shimmer Powder...). I'd keep this powder for the summertime, if you get tanned (in my case that doesn't happen), or for darker skin colours, maybe i'm too pale for it. But I like it..

Palettes -Dior -Shimmer Powder 001 Rose Diamond, Spring 08

on 6/11/2018 12:55:00 AM

I like it, I'm a big fan of shimmer powders, the texture it's great, soft, well pigmented, buildable, but this powder in particular has a very good coverage, so you have to be careful if you want an armonic result...
I usually wear Guerlain Les Meteorites in pearls, which coverage is buildable and the glitter it has is tiny, fine grounded. This Dior powder, if you wear too much, gets on the skin like something metallic...so I was thinking by using it as a blush, not like a powder. Maybe because i'm too pale...maybe in darker tones it looks better. I like it anyway, I think I must be softer when I apply it...
The packaging is beautiful, a blue plastic box with the Dior letters in silver, with a big mirror...it does not include a brush...
I don't mention anything about the price because in my country everything is expensive, but a little bit more of product would be right...you hit pan very easily...it's too slim...

Eyeliner -Dior -Crayon Eyeliner Waterproof in Trinidad Black

on 6/11/2018 12:29:00 AM

I like it. It's waterproof as it says...the only thing I don't like it's that it could be darker (I prefer Estee Lauder's pencil because of this...)It's not gray...but it's not jet black. Because I don't wear it everyday, I had it for several years and that made the pencil get dry when I finished it...but fresh the texture it's ok, it's not creamy anyway. I bought it again because it's really really waterproof, even if you use it in your waterline, that's what I do, so I think if you use it in your upper eyelid the results will be even better.
The simple one pencil (not the waterproof) it's fine too...but dryer and harder to apply...there are many cheaper options that are better...(Maybelline, for example...). I love Dior, but I have to be realistic.
The packaging is good, it includes a sharpener, not that one included in the pencil itself, a real pencil sharpener. The sponge tip is something I don't use, it's soft and it seems to be made with a quality product, but I don't use it at all.

Blush -Dior -Rosy Glow Awakening Blush

on 6/11/2018 12:07:00 AM

Love it! It looks great on my cheeks, like when you've been laughing a lot, it resembles the blush of natural happiness...It can take off your bad mood, your bad sleep, everything from your face.
The packaging is delicious, it has a big mirror, a soft brush, maybe too soft...the metallic box is very nice, jewel-like...
The colour is an intense bubblegum pink, but being intense and easy to pick up with the brush or the fingers, doesn't mean it's going to stain your face, the coverage is initially sheer, and then it gets darker only if you want...
It lasts for hours, I always wear products that last because I live far far away from college and from downtown, so I wear these kind of products... it LASTS. I went to a party 2hs away from home and I came back with perfect cheeks...
It has a very nice texture, softer than other Dior blushes. It has a beautiful rose fragrance too.
It's not appropriate for contouring, it doesn't create shadows, it enlightens the cheeks' apple with a rosy, pink tone. It doesn't have glitter, but it's shiny, like water or something when it gets on the skin...
I like it, i would buy it again, it's perfect for girls in their 20's and teens too, and for me that i'm 30-something, it's a tool to cover how tired I am...
It's hard to find a lipstick or lipgloss to match if you don't like how fuchsia looks on your lips, that's the problem I have...I combined it with a glitter pink gloss and with a dark rose matte lipstick. You can also use something in purple or violet, but those colours don't fit on me.
