I can’t remember if all Dior Addict lipsticks have this shot of iridescence running through the packaging or if its just the summer collection – either way, it’s really pretty.
These are so juicy in consistency – they give an almost gloss-like sheen to the lips and are truly a comfortable lipstick wear. Colour wise, from left to right: Windrose, Cruise and Sunlight. There is a fourth shade, Mayday – a deep orange/red shade. As pigmented as these look, they’re very forgiving on the lip because the sheen gives the illusion of smoother lips.
You can tell it’s cold in my kitchen again! Goosebumps! Sunlight really is that barely-there, although would make a gorgeous golden shimmery topper to any colour lipstick. They’re £24 each.
The two Dior Addict Glosses for the Transat collection are Offshore (sandy gold) and Seafarer (bright orange). Both are £22 each.
Both shades are quite sheer – I’m all over Seafarer as a pop of colour – it’s gorgeous.
The Dior Nude Tan Transat Golden Shimmer Edition is all gold – this one is totally about highlighting the face and body without giving any warming tan as the name might suggest.
There are little glimmers of iridescence in there, but it’s predominantly gold. Beautiful as it is, I can’t imagine ever being able to get through that much highlighter, although on tanned legs, just along the shin bone, it’s going to look amazing. It’s £40.
I’ve just applied some of the new Dior Tan Prime & Bronze so I’m hoping it works as well as the claims! It’s a foundation primer and a self tanner for the face – it’s tinted so you get a breath of warmth to the skin with it but ideally you’ll see tan results after using for one week.
To my knowledge, there hasn’t been a primer-tan before so I’m interested to see how it works out. There are two shades; one for dark tones and one for light. It’s £28.
So, that’s more or less it for the Dior Summer 2014 Swatches – I’ve got some of the Dior Backstage Essentials coming up soon along with the new Dior Addict Lip Maximiser in Fresh Pink – a new shade.
