My Dior hauls

I am a big fan of Dior cosmetic. I don't know why but they just seem to be able to accommodate my needs when it comes to make-up. It all started when I first purchased a lipgoss from their Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Reflects range. I was hooked. Even though the colour I loved has since discontinued (geez...why?) after my 2nd tube, my craze for Dior did not stop just there. I then slowly ventured into their other lip colours, blusher and eyeshadows.

I am not a person who follows cosmetic trend closely but I can become quite "aggressive" when comes the time to addressing my needs. Hehehehehe
SO, here are my hauls this week........


Dior 5 colours Iridescent eyeshadow (#539 Leather)


I wanted a natural earthy-brownish shade eyeshadow to create a natural, understated look while giving out some young vibes. Brownish shades are very versatile, but if not careful, it can add years to your face. And this palette fits all. With the smooth shimmering texture, the shades actually make your eyes appear brighter and the look, younger!


Pro-Cheeks Blusher (#755 Catwalk Pink)

Face it, cream blush is so in right now but finding a good cream blush ain't easy. Some give you dry patches, some have weak staying power and some well, just tacky to wear. Dior Pro-Cheeks has great staying power, it lasts whole day for me. On top of that, the colour is so natural and so easy to blend. Another bonus you get is the glow. I don't know how they did it, but this blush gives you that healthy glow.


Diorskin Poudre Shimmer


I got this in Rose Diamond. This is a star! I was out and about looking for a shimmering highlighter and was first introduced to Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks. People were raving about these shimmer bricks, so I jumped on the bandwagon and had a try at the Bobbi Brown counter. I picked the Rose Shimmer and honestly, I wasn't impressed with the result when the SA put it on me. I don't know, it just doesn't quite cut it for me. Didn't get it. I then noticed later in the day that the powder that was suppose to stay on my face was all over my clothes!

Anyway, just when I was paying for the Dior 5 colours eyeshadow palette, something caught my eyes. Yes, their version of shimmer bricks and boy was I lucky, I tell you, as soon as the SA put it on my cheeks, I knew the search has ended! This shimmer really lights up my face, subtly but noticeable. The texture is really smooth and fine. The individual colours are also perfect as eyeshadow. In my honest opinion, this shimmer could easily throw Bobby Brown's shimmer bricks out of the windoor!

Please pardon me, I think I don't know much about putting on cosmetics that I may have to find a good mentor to give me an induction to it one day, that is if I should really need to put them on properly. @_@

I like natural earthy-brownish shade eyeshadow too. Give me 5! :)

However, I must say I'm still a loyal customer of Bobbi Brown (although I'm using and still love Dior's blush) :P. I think we should all look for cosmetics that suits our skin, that we feel comfortable in regradless of the brand :).

P/s: I'm so tempted to try out the cream blush you mentioned above from Dior...hehe. You have good marketing skill!

jezalmy:
Haha, I'm the opposite. I have too many colourful eyeshadows thus buying this neutral tone one. Just got and get it quietly....Hehehehe

oceanskies79:
That's ok hun. Not every gal is into make-up anyway. Keeping your simple and natural is another beauty too.

emotionalistic:
Hahaha, I should urge Dior to give me some commission then!

Yes, I totally agree with you. No single brand in this world can satisfy us gals entirely, it is good to choose and pick those that suit us, whatever brands they are.

I urge you to give it a try on the cream blush, really, it is great stuff!
