Dior Milky Dots collection Milky Tint in 286 Milky Plum and 376 Milky Pop review

Dior Addict Milky Tint is new for Spring 2016 and it is a combination of the Dior Addict Fluid Stick with a more milky gloss. The shades I have are 286 Milky Plum, which is a subtle, milky lilac, and 376 Milky Pop, which is a really pretty warm coral. Milky Plum is quite sheer but helps to tone down the colour of my lips to create a nude-lilac look. I’d need to really layer it in order to get more colour intensity, but then it just starts getting sticky. Milky Pop is my favourite of the two as it is a really nice summer-appropriate coral that packs more of a colour punch. Lightly layered, the Milky Tints feel lightweight with very minimal stickiness. In general though, I still prefer lipsticks over glosses but if you’re a gloss lover, these are great options to add to your gloss collection.

Dior Addict Lip Maximizer 006 Beige Sunrise is a new and limited edition version of the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer from the regular range. This is a sheer, nude beige colour that works perfectly as a quick nude lip for the daytime, with added plumping benefit. Unfortunately I can’t wear this to test it out because my lips are very sensitive to lip plumper-type products. I have heard good things about the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer from others though, so if you’re on the market for a nude-toned lip gloss with that added plumping benefit, you may want to look into this.

Dior Milky Dots summer 2016 Polka Colour & Dots Manicure Kit review

Dior Polka Colour & Dots Manicure Kit in 001 Pastilles, 002 Confettis, and 003 Plumetis are the stars of this collection, they are also my favourites of this entire collection. With each kit, you get two Dior nail polish minis, plus a nail dotter. Regular size Dior polishes are 10mL for $31, and these kits contain two 8mL sizes plus a dotter, which is great value. Dior polishes are some of my favourites on the market – they have a really nice wide brush that allows for even application without streaking, and are also high shine, and last for a week on me with minimal tip wear and chipping (with top coat). The Dior top coat is my absolute favourite top coat of all time, and if it wasn’t for the fact that it’s so expensive, I’d buy it all the time.

Dior Polka Colour & Dots Manicure Kit in 001 Pastilles contains a milky nude and a pretty blue. I love this colour combination because you can either be fun and colourful, using the blue as a base with nude dots, or subtle for the office using the nude as a base with blue dots. The kit comes with instructions on how to use these colours, which is very easy to follow.

Dior Polka Colour & Dots Manicure Kit in 002 Confettis contains a mango shade and a coral shade. This colour combination is pretty and very summery, and would look great on your toes with 003 Plumetis (below) on your nails!

Dior Polka Colour & Dots Manicure Kit in 003 Plumetis is my favourite of the three because it contains two very office-appropriate colours (how boring of me, haha) – a pale rose pink and a milky lilac. This is for the engineers and lawyers and accoutants who work in conservative office environments but still want to jazz up their nail polish with some subtle nail art. So much love!

Dior Milky Dots summer 2016 Polka Colour & Dots Manicure Kit review

Dior Milky Dots for Summer 2016 is something a little different that comes from the House of Dior. Usually I find Dior collections to be more classic, daytime wear because they tend to stick to the classic colours, but Milky Dots really takes it out of their usual comfort zone. Of course, there is still the classic tone colours that you can find in the Escapade palette, but its nicely contrasted with the colourful Bain de Mer Palette. The star products of this collection are hands down the Polka Dots Colour & Dots Manicure Kit. The value is great for Dior polish as well, so if you’re interested in Dior nail polishes but are unsure about where to start, you can get two colours in this kit to try.

In conclusion
Buy: Dior Polka Dots Colour & Dots Manicure Kit (SO CUTE), Dior Addict Milky Tiny in 376 Milky Pop, Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powders in 002 Fresh Light (MUST HAVE, reviewed)
Maybes: Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 366 Bain de Mer (reviewed), Dior Addict Lip Maximizer 006 Beige Sunrise, Dior Addict Milky Tint in 286 Milky Plum
Skip: Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 536 Escapade (reviewed), Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powders in 001 Fresh Tan (if you have fair/light skin, but will work better for darker skintones, reviewed), Diorskin Nude Air Summer Glow Shimmering Loose Powder 001 (reviewed)
