Beautiful foundation, looks like skin, very lightweight, doesn't cling to dry patches, and the plastic bottle is ideal for travelling. It also contains 40ml - a bit more than the usual 30ml.

Eyes -Dior -Skin flash luminizer pen

on 2/19/2018 3:29:00 AM

The coverage under eyes is moderate, not creasing, nice finish, not drying, big plus. Is thicker than skinflush, which I used all the time and loved, but was not available. Comes out of pen in blobs, dries on the brush and also my brush was unevenly cut, had to cut it with scissors to get rid of scratching.,
Using for a month and will not buy again, too thick for me.

I beyond love this. It's the most beautiful perfume I have ever smelled. It's a complicated oriental floral. The Jasmine and Vanilla make it a home run. Silliage is beyond compare. The original and 2 flankers are all great. Women love it and men go crazy over this. I buy 3 at a time for fear it will be discontinued. Xox love Dior Addict xox

I really like this foundation and use it during the summer, when I’m a bit tanned. Unfortunately this foundation doesn’t have a wide enough shade range to match my super light skin. Therefore I can’t use this as soon as my tan fades.

This is very gentle yet surprisingly great toner. Nice subtle smell, non drying, no residue left, i breakout easily and this has been wonderful. I was told it is being replaced by a new product though!!


Eye Shadow -Dior -High Fidelity Eyeshadow Palette - FEEL (#797)

This eyeshadow quint from Dior is gorgeous. I loved the color selection, perfect colors for everyday wear. All the colors have a satin finish except the brown in the middle, that one is almost matte. The shadows are pigmented, soft & velvety and there's next to no fallout. They blend very easily, even when in a hurry and they also layer well. I think these shadows are in fact my most favorite formula that I've ever tried, and I'm not being biased just because it's Dior. Yes it's stupid expensive for 5 shadows but you got to treat yourself from time to time, right? I've got my eyes on the "Magnify" quint & I'm getting that one next.All in all a great product.

Top/Base Coats -Dior -Base Coat Abricot

Diorlisse Abricot 800 Smoothing Perfecting Nail Care. I have this in snow pink which is more opaque than the petal pink but I like both. Good formula, really minuscule streaking (being picky) and an application brush that suits me. Quick to dry too.
It is expensive !! and more than I would normally pay but I find it works really well on my horribly ridged nails to give a nice smooth base. I don't mind the fact that snow pink is fairly opaque as I use with jelly polish with the intention of it becoming part of the finished colour. With an opaque colour on top it gives a nice smooth finish. If looking for a nice sheer and natural effect, petal pink would be the way to go. The other reason I like this one is that it really does appear to be helping with the condition of my nails but more time needed to be sure. 4 Lippy's due to price.

Pricey foundation but worth it in my opinion if it works out for you. The formula is fantastic, it applies and blends easily. Provides a nice medium coverage and also imparts a subtle glow on my skin. My skin looks great at the end of the day. Of course I do have to blot my skin a few times during the day but it held up really well on my combo skin. The foundation shade 041, Soft Ochre is a great match for me. I have never tried a Dior foundation before and I am very impressed with this one.

I'd buy it again It is a safe bet if you want medium to full coverage without looking Cakey, glides on nicely. Colour range is good I have Asian skin tone. Packaging nice light and neat not a heavy bottle can carry on holiday. Long lasting not as thick as Kat Von D etc hence I love it!


Lip Treatments -Dior -Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm

on 2/8/2018 1:33:00 PM

Dior has released a few new colors of its Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm and two of these are holographic- holographic pink and holographic purple. I picked up the Dior Holographic Purple which is number 009. This isn't so much holographic as it is purple with some iridescent shimmer and sparkles in it. This is a highly moisturizing, yet incredibly expensive, lip balm. This doesn't have much flavor to it, it applies easily, and feels silky on your lips. If you don't mind the price this is a decent tinted lip balm, but there are definitely others out there for far far less. Swatches and more detailed review can be seen here:

Fragrances -Dior -J'adore Injoy Eau de Toilette

on 2/6/2018 6:28:00 PM

foto

$130.00 for 3.4 ounces

Fragrance Notes:

Top - Sea Salt
Middle- Ylang Ylang, Tuberose, Neroli
Base -Peach

I detest this new fragrance, typical "mall" perfume.. I've never loved any Dior fragrance but this one is particularly obnoxious to my nose. I love Tuberose, Ylang Ylang and Neroli. I don't know what the sea salt they are using smells like, but they can have many different scents, even violet. Sea salts from different regions have impurities that give them a distinctive flavor and scent. I can't detect any of the floral middle notes, just an offensive blend of all of them nor can I detect the peach base note. This has to be one of the worst fragrances I've tried in a long time. It smells cheap, and to me it smells like bug spray. Unfortunately, it does last quite a long time when applied. 5-8 hours easily. I wore it for 3 days, by the 4th day it made me want to gag so I washed it off. My sinuses breathed a sigh of relief.

Get a sample, wear it a few days before you purchase this. The creator, François Demachy needs to take some lessons from perfumer noses like Jean Francoise Laporte, Anne Flipo, Jean Paul Millet Lage(Fleur des Comores, one of my holy grails), Nicolas Debarry, and some of the other great ones.

Description from Dior Website:
J'adore Injoy is a perfume that literally "smells" of joy. A new, instant pleasure, an exclamation that springs forth like a declaration of love for life: J'adore Injoy!

François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator, has created a salty treat that is both original and surprising…
A flower with a freshness that is full and lively, soft and incisive, custom-crafted in Grasse.
J’adore Injoy has a charm like no other that seizes the senses with a daring floral-fruity-salty accord. Ylang-Ylang Essence from Madagascar and Jasmine Sambac are brightened with a refreshing Fleur de Sel note and bursting with juicy Peach. A light and salty nectar, as refreshing as a beautiful, ripe fruit.
Perfumer's word

"With J’adore Injoy, I created an original fruity-salty accord to make white flowers shine. This Fleur de Sel is modern in style and literally smells of joy."
François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator

Lipstick -Dior -Rouge Dior

I've always been cheap with lipsticks to be honest. My thought process was, 1) There are so many cosmetic brands, you can almost most certainly find any color lipstick you see at an expensive brand from a cheaper brand. 2) Since I don't wear make-up often my products usually expire before I can finish half the tube. If I'm going to spend a large amount of money, I need to use the whole thing.

But this Rouge Dior line kind of changed my mind. I got a Rouge Dior as a gift about 6-7 years ago. It was a bold color I liked but wouldn't use a lot. In fact the last two years I didn't even touch it until I found it in a drawer. I was very surprised there was no kind of going bad situation. No bad odor, the texture was still there, the color was still strong. I still feared it would irritate me; I have sensitive skin. But I gave it a try. No irritation. I used it several times in the last month and the lipstick is exactly like the day I received it 6-7 years ago. Whereas most (but not all!) of my lipsticks from cheaper brands went bad one way or the other within 3 years.

So I guess expensive lipsticks might worth it sometimes, too. Personally I would still first check cheaper yet good-quality and long-lasting brands like Alix Avien when I need a new lipstick. But if I can't find the right shade there, I will gladly go to Rouge Dior now. Especially for the colors I do love but won't use often so I need it to last for some years.

I loved the Diorskin Forever foundation that was the predecessor to this one but cannot purchase it here - all that is left of this product is the very dark shades and I have tried 3 different retailers to get it without luck. So I waited for the "new and improved" (?) version to arrive in store so I could get colour matched and get a sample. The shade 14, which was perfect in the old foundation, is waaaay too dark and the only other colour that was even close was 010, the lightest shade, so I don't know what people with paler skin than mine (and there are plenty) are supposed to do.

This new version is more watery and I find it harder to work with to get a nice, "perfect skin" application - it's just harder to blend and I have to work fairly fast. And while it is light, it doesn't feel all that nice on the skin, though it might feel nicer come summer-time. And the bottle, while more practical, doesn't look nearly so luxe as the original pump bottle (this is a "shade and squeeze" plastic one that seems to offer some protection from the light, which is all very good but it really doesn't look like a luxury product).

I am SO disappointed that the foundation I really love is no longer available. Since Sephora still has a tiny display bottle from which they pump out their samples, I wonder if I can get a few more little pots of the "old" formula, since they no longer have the actual product to sell. I'll keep working with my little samples of this new formula though - it seems a bit better each time I use it and Shade 14 actually looks okay once applied so I'm hoping this does work out for me, in which case, I will certainly purchase.

i know that this foundation is not for my skin type. however a free sample in shade 30 got into my stash so i put it on as an experiment/learning opportunity.

im around N25 and shade 30 is not right. it is supposed to be for light-medium depth with a neutral undertone but it is too dark and orange-y. if i wanted to pursue this foundation i would have to sample a bunch of shades and im not convinced there is one that is suitable.

the formula is thin (water based) and quite pigmented. the water dries very fast leaving the powdery layer of pigment on the skin. so therefore, a very matte (dry) finish.

thin formulas are not compatible with my usual clarisonic so i used a dense flat topped kabuki. medium coverage easily buildable to full coverage with 2nd layer. but you have to work fast! absolutely no need for concealer on cheeks/nose/blemishes.

i used a moisturizing primer yet this fndtn was still much too dry for me. it does not settle into lines and pores at all (because i have basically brushed pure pigment all over my face) but so matte that cracks were really bad. like embarrassingly-bad...cannot-wear-in-public bad. (im age 54 and have lots of wrinkles). there is absolutely no need to powder this fndtn but i did try to fill the cracks a bit with chanel and that helped a little i think.

i wore it for 8 hours and on my normal skin type it is resilient. it showed no wear at all. was transfer proof on me and looks promising for oily and very oily skin types. feels very light weight on the face and it accepted other makeup well. (i did not test bronzer because i was already oompa-loompah).

however by this time my face was feeling itchy and i was really wanting the foundation off (besides the fact that the shade and finish looked horrible on me). i recommend double cleansing with this one.

if i were to try this fndtn again, i would treat it as a pigment and add it to my moisturizing primer, or to liquid illuminator.
