Dior Addict Ceremony Red #774 Ultra-Gloss ($28)
I am OBSESSED.
Diva #901 (.40 oz.’s)
I picked this up for $26 which is steep but I have nothing like this in my stash. I love the little bottle and the brush is good also!
I love black polish but add some glitter and I’m interested. But if you put a spin on the usual glitter suspects that are traditionally used I am all IN. The glitter in this is gold and pink/purple. In some light it looks like there is purple glitter in there and sometimes I think it’s pink. Regardless its gorgeous.
This lipstick is GOOD.
Marilyn #40 Lipstick ($36/.12 oz.)
I don’t buy many Dior lipsticks but this is one I had my eye on when I saw their holiday release info. It’s called Marilyn, the color is a dark pink-red shade and I love those! How cute is the packaging? Too cute. This is being advertised as a long-wearing shade and I can co-sign on that and also tell you that its really comfortable to wear as well. And it doesn’t look half bad either in my humble opinion!
There is a new Dior 5 Couleurs palette for Fall and it’s called Golden Savannah #774. It’s $59 and when I saw it I thought should I or shouldn’t I?
Well I ended up getting it. It’s an overcast gloomy looking day here but I’m not complaining since it’s in the 80′s today instead of 100 sweaty degrees. But my swatches and pics of this palette will suffer. Here are my best attempts at quick pictures and swatches of Golden Savannah.
The center color is going to be used sparingly because it’s a little out there. I noticed a lot of fallout even when swatching it. But the other colors swatch smooth as butter. Remember you can click on any of the pictures above to make them larger. I can’t wait to dig into this palette and work these colors. I love using palettes like this and then going super bright with my lipstick.
Check this palette out at Nordstrom or Neiman’s for Fall, it’s available in stores now!
This new mascara from Dior came out a few months ago. If it’s one thing I finally understand now it’s that DIOR KNOWS MASCARA. I’ve tried almost all of them and they are all good. My favorite (before trying this) was Diorshow Black Out. It’s good. It’s super black and creates amazing volume. When New Look came out I couldn’t wait to see the wand/brush. When I did see it, I was disappointed. The brush wand is really small. So the tube was in my cabinet for a few months. I pulled it out finally not expecting much but what I got was amazing.
That “little” wand brings out lashes that weren’t even visible before. I’m a volume girl when it comes to mascara more so than length but I get both with this! And here’s a big plus…I don’t have to be on “clump watch” all the time. The texture of the formula is just about perfect. My lashes are really soft after using New Look too. I hate having hard stiff lashes after applying mascara. That can’t be healthy for them in my opinion. I don’t know how the small brush wand is making this happen but it does!
This is worth checking into for mascara fanatics. It’s $28.50 a pop but I’d repurchase more in a heartbeat. This won’t replace the love of my life Armani’s Eyes To Kill but it comes close. Check this out at Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus. It also comes in blue and brown if you aren’t a fan of black mascara.
Here is the description for New Look mascara:
Diorshow New Look features an exclusive, breakthrough nano brush to catch and coat every last lash with the precision of a couturier’s hand. The extraordinary formula extraordinaire, with a Lash Amplifier™ ingredient, offers instant lash-multiplying action.
Here’s my last Dior shade from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! Poison ($23) is a deep purple shade and since I’m always crazy about colors that look almost black its a home run for me.
I painted my nails so quickly but with the super fat Dior nail wand thats no problem. I did a base coat, two coats of Poison, and a top coat. Love this color! So glad I picked it up. If you aren’t a Nordstrom cardholder you can pick this shade up in a few days (after the 20th) so make it happen!
