Dior Summer 2011


This summer season between Chanel, Guerlain, & Dior, everyone seems to be trying to out do each other but the Dior counter is where I blew my cash =P


I happily walked away with two pieces from this collection

One of the main pieces is something many beauty bloggers have been all debating and collecting, reviewing, and swatching - my new bronzer for summer


Dior Aurora Bronzer
*Isnt is beautiful?*
The pattern is insane


Embedded in the pattern are colors blended of peach, tan, and light brown. There is shimmer in this product but it does not translate on the skin at all. Though it swatches a bit peach, when applied to my skin, it gives the most the unbelievably sun kissed color/glow. It's not a tan brown, but a gorgeous combination that does have peach in the mix, but does not come out orange on the skin. I think the peach really brightens the face, especially when in sunlight

This is not a highly pigmented bronzer, so I do have to get a bronzer brush ( which is the 1st brush I bought and NEVER used ) and can finally go a little crazy when applying this on my face. It is a bit hard to overdo, but the overall end effect is incredibly natural.


The second thing that caught my eye were the new eye shdow quints
Both color variations were gorgeous but I settled on Rosy Tan and could not be happier

Dior Rosy Tan 754


Close Up


I am pretty IN LOVE with the brown in the upper right hand corner, and the lower left corner.
So effortlessly put together, an easy and elegant eye in one palette. Though the textures of these shadow vary even within the palette with the pink being least pigmented, the two browns I pin pointed have the best formulation. Buttery soft texture.

I can see this becoming a staple!

Both come in blue velvet pouches, the bronzer comes with a mini pocket to house an included brush with very soft bristles




Swatches
Highlight color ( center), top left hand corner going clockwise
How gorgeous is that 4th shade?




Now with Aurora Bronzer as the 1st shade


Have any of you been drawn to the new summer collections?

  3. I find that my CD products are really hard to overdo as well. I don't own any of their eyeshadows but whenever I swatched them I agree they were really buttery and soft. I LOVEEEE when a bronzer is hard to overdo. I cannot tell you how many times I've been in a rush and accidentally overdid my bronzer and had to spend forever trying to blend it out. Great picks and review.
