The first 2016 summer collection on the blog is Dior!
The new 'Milky Dots' collection is all about the cheerful polkadot print
"They're charming, elegant, always in fashion and I never get tired of them." - Christian Dior.
Peter Philips also got inspired by the polka dot and milky hues, resulting in this cheerful summer collection.
The Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powder is a compact powder that gives you a healthy glow. It comes in the beautiful Nude Air packaging as we know it, with the prettiest print in the powder.
I have the powder in 003 Warm Glow, which is one of the darkest shades. As a bronzer I would use it lightly in the 3-shape (top of forehead, sides of face) for a sun-kissed look. At first glance I thought because of the darkness it would be great for contouring, but it's not ashy enough and it is a glow powder, which means it has illuminating features. So contouring is a no go. You can however use this bronzer very (very, very!) lightly all over your face as a finishing powder because of that pretty glow it has - and it gives an instant summer feeling to your make-up look.
The cute polka dot manicure kit is definitely my favorite of this collection. It contains 2 tiny nail polishes and a dotting tool. The dotting tool works easy and you can easily go for little or bigger dots. The two colors I have are the brightest, there also is a pink and lavender duo and one with blue and nude beige. The kit is around the same price as 1 full size Dior nail polish (10ml) and these little ones are 7ml, so this really is a good deal!
The Dior Addict lipsticks make their entrance in a lot of collections lately, but I don't mind at all! 581 Beat is a beautiful fuchsia pink and it's very pigmented for a Dior Addict lipstick. Dior Addict really is a summer lipstick because of the shiny finish, subtle color and because they're easy to apply - handbag essential.
Dior - Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powder in 003 Warm Tan (€57,47)
Dior - Polka Dots Manicure Kit in 002 Confettis (€32,94)
Dior - Addict Lipstick in 581 Beat (€38,03)
The Dior 2016 summer collection isn't one of the most exciting ones (I liked last year better), but it has some really nice products like the glow powder and manicure kit. I would definitely go check out the polka dots nail kit because as I said, it's a steal!
