I’m so excited to share with you Dior Milky Dots collection for Summer 2016! Today I’m going to focus on the Eye and the Face/Cheek products, and then in a separate post I will feature the Lip and Nail products. I have to share with you these products from the collection in this post:
- Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 366 Bain de Mer
- Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 536 Escapade
- Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powders in 001 Fresh Tan
- Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powders in 002 Fresh Light
- Diorskin Nude Air Summer Glow Shimmering Loose Powder 001
Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow in 366 Bain de Mer (C$73) is the more colourful of the two palettes, featuring bright coral, minty blue, and sky blue colours. The shades in this palette are mostly matte, which can help to tone down the bright colours. The texture is very smooth, with medium pigmentation, and good adherence. The biggest issue with this palette is that I found it to have a lot of powder flyaway. Normally I find Dior eyeshadows to be more powdery compared to most, but this one was exceptionally powdery. This is easily resolved with some sticky eyeshadow primer, so it’s not a complete dealbreaker, but just something that should be noted.
Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow in 536 Escapade (C$73) is the more neutral of the two, with subtle pinks, golden yellow, and brown colours. The finish of this palette is mostly shimmery, and pigmentation is quite sheer so it works great as a fool-proof daytime, neutral palette. The texture of these powders are very smooth as well, and of the two palettes I find that Escapade is less powdery, but with the tradeoff being pigmentation.
Both palettes are very different, so it really depends on what you are looking for in an eyeshadow palette. Of course, Bain de Mer is the more unique of the two, but neither I would say are absolute must-haves.
Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powders in 001 Fresh Tan (C$68) is the darker, more shimmery of the two face/cheek powders. It’s comprised of a darkened gold, and a warm brown bronzer. The colours that spell out the word “NUDE” are just overspray and will come off in one use. This one is a bit too dark for my use all over, and would be more appropriate for someone who is a few shades darker than me. I also find 001 Fresh Tan a bit more orange-toned, which is something I like to stay away from, even used as a cheek colour, because it brings out the yellow in my skin.
Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powders in 002 Fresh Light (C$68) is the lighter, more daytime appropriate of the two. It is comprised of two cooler tone bronzers that work great to create a wonderful warm glow on your cheeks. I can definitely see myself using this as a subtly summer contour to bring out some colour to my face. Of the two Diorskin Nude Air Glow powders for summer 2016, I prefer 002 Fresh Light.
I love that the Diorskin Nude powders come with a mini kabuki brush – it’s just so cute!
Lastly, we have the Diorskin Nude Air Summer Glow Shimmering Loose Powder 001 (C$68). This is a bronzey shimmering loose powder that you can use softly all over for glow, on your cheekbones for highlight, or dusted on your shoulders and collarbone for a night out. It comes in a luxurious-looking jar with a silver lid, and a white puff for applying the powder. The shimmer in this is not glittery at all, and the colour saturation means you can easily use this as a subtle bronzing powder.
Dior Milky Dots collection for Summer 2016 will be available in May at all Dior counters and outlets. Watch for my next post which will focus on lip and nail products!
