Dior has a new Autumn collection out, and even though we’re on the brink of Spring I am still pretty excited about some of the items they’ve included. Besides the usual 5 colour palettes, nail polish and Rouge Dior lipsticks they have some totally new formulas including three shades of cream blush in a stick format, and some metallic liquid eyeshadows in the Dior Addict range which are packaged just like the lip gloss. There are also some new Dior Addict Fluid Stick shades exclusive to this collection.
I was most excited about the cream blush and the liquid eyeshadows as these aren’t something Dior usually offers. I always have a weakness for cream blush, and having picked one up in the shade Rosewood (around R445) I can say I’m very impressed with the pigmentation and staying power of these cheek sticks. They come in three shades, Cosmopolite Coral, Rosewood and Pink. I also got my hands on a fluid shadow (R465) in the shade Univers, a metallic bronze taupe shade which sets like concrete and doesn’t budge if you rub your eyes (but isn’t waterproof at all so it can easily be removed). There is also a very pretty but very subtle highlighter included in the range.
Hurry, hurry though because the counters get limited stock of these collections. If there is anything that catches your eye then best phone beforehand to hunt down your must-have. I will be reviewing my two items in the next few weeks.
