I actually brought these products last year in July just before my wedding as I wanted a more dewy and fresh faced look for the smaller events surrounding the wedding - Especially all the lil dinner events afterwards! I felt like this combination of products would make getting ready a lot quicker since I can no longer take more than 15 miunutes to get ready! UGH Impatient non-makeup wearing people honestly... -_- lol
Firstr off is the limited edition Dior Skin Tie Dye Nude blushes in Pink Sunrise. I luckily managed to get my hands on one. I really wanted to get the Coral Sunset but it had sold out! :(
I was really excited to use this and even though I usually apply matte blushes and add highlight seperate, I went with this because it has a subtle sheen in just some of the pink shades which doesnt look shiny on my skin but gives a soft glow to the cheeks!
I think because it was a little powdery without being chalky it didn't look like a melting mess after a little while and actually absorbed any excess oil that my skin might have produced.
By swirling them all together, it gives a beautiful blush from within rosey cheeks effect which I was really digging! I found it lasted from early afternoon til late evening which was perfect!
It also came with a cute little kabuki brush and a velvet pouch which I didnt actually use for the blush for fear of overapplying it and also because I didn't want to ruin the design on there so quick! (Sad I know...)
I also picked up the Diorskin Nude Shimmer Instant Illuminating Powder to add some bronze warmth to my skin as the Star Foundation is just the slightest bit lighter for me and I really didn't want any ashyness or the ghost effect.
Heres what Dior says,
'The first DIOR Colour and Glow Powder, combining dazzling shades with flesh tones for a radiant fresh glow. With its Kabuki mini-brush, this powder comes in 4 colour harmonies: 2 pink harmonies to add a touch of freshness and a highlighting effect, and 2 apricot harmonies for a vibrantly sensual glow.'
I got the shade Dior Amber (002) which I think complimented my skin the best but they come in 4 shades from what I could see on the Dior Counter. This powder is just fab! It is not chalky, nor does it have chunky shimmery pieces within it. The powder is very finely milled, so goes on very smoothly on top of the Dior Star foundation without getting patchy.
I didn't apply this all over my face by the way - Just where I would usually bronze the skin and I didn't apply this if I wore the blush and vice versa as the blush is cool toned and this is obviously warm toned.
Again the powder comes with a mini Kabuki brush and was enclosed in a velvet pouch. The 4 different colours in the powder go really well together and I felt like they really did warm up my skin with it looking overly orange or even muddy. I would love it if the apricot orange in the powder was actually sold seperately as either highlighter or as an eyeshadow just because it is so super pretty!
So this was part one of the Dior Haul - the second part which is the review of the Dior Star Foundation will be up next as I didn't want this to be to long of a read... Let me know what you think and as usual leave your comments & thoughts below!
