Dior's new summer look is called Bird of Paradise. It's a mix of tropical colour blocks that are inspired by Latin America.
Every tone of blue seems to have been incorporated into this collection from aqua through to peacock blue whilst the lips are more natural hues of juicy pinks and coral.
DiorSkin Nude Tan BB Cream SPF15Summer collections always see the launch of a product to give our skin a sun kissed glow. For this collection Dior has adapted its current Dior Skin Nude BB Cream and given it a tanned twist.
Does the normal work we would expect from a BB Cream of smoothing out an un-even skin tone and giving a sheer veil of cover however this is infused with a bronze pigment to warm up the skin.
Texture is creamy but dries to a matte finish. Would be suitable for a normal/combination skin. Maybe a little to matte and drying for a dry skin type.
Has an SPF15 however ensure you are still using a normal sunblock underneath when lying out in the sun.
This comes in just the one colour and is £30.00
Diorskin Nude Tan Paradise Duo
On the left half is a combination of soft peach and beige bronzer. Powder gives a radiant finish but with no glitter thank goodness. I am not a fan of a glittery face in the sun.
The bronzer side is has a natural colour payoff so would be suitable for a fair skin tone and could also be used to contour. These colours also look great swept through the eye socket also for definition.
The right half are two shades of a vibrant peachy pink. This however does have a fine gold glitter running through it.
Colour comes out much stronger so only a small amount on the apples of the cheeks would be needed.
Comes with a Kabuki brush for application.
Nail Lacquer Duo
I really like the idea of having two mini nail lacquers in one set. The idea is one goes on your toes and one on your fingers. Kind of like a mix and match bikini.
This duo is an indigo blue and fuchsia pink set called Bahia but there is also a turquoise and mint set called Samba .
Each set is £22.00 and the size is slightly smaller at 7ml.
Jelly Lip Pen
|Ilhabela Jelly Lip Pen|
I love the gel/balm texture of this pen but didn't like the glitter particles. Found they got stuck on my constant dry lips!
Because of the sheer coverage you would need to top up regularly throughout the day also.
These are £19.00 each.
