Dior Spring 2016 Glowing Gardens Collection

Hello all

It has been a while since we wrote about latest makeup buys or newest releases so we thought the new Dior collection is perfect to break the dry spell. We are a little late on this so you guys have probably already seen the collection and I think it is safe to say that this new release is absolutely stunning; regardless of colour or design, everything is gorgeous. But with that being said, we won’t actually go through every single item; only the ones we really liked.

So without further ado, here it is:

Diorshow Colour & Contour 

This item is an eyeshadow and liner duo which they have released in 5 different combinations to represent Water Lily (Green), Orchid (Peach), Twig (Platinum), Iris (Purple) and Hortensia (Lilac). We purchased the Orchid 757 and the Hortensia 957 because they were colours we would wear more however all the colours were amazing and the liners definitely complimented the shadows really well.

Now with that being said, when we first purchased it, we didn’t have too high of an expectation and we more or less got it simply because it was really pretty and it was an item we wanted from the collection. However after we used it, we realized just how GREAT it is, firstly the stay power is amazing, after you apply the eyeshadow on you have roughly around 3 seconds to blend it out if you wish because after that, the shadow will not budge at all and it is seriously one of the most waterproof and pigmented duos we have used.

I really want to go buy another one now….. not good…. not good at all….

As for colours, all 5 are quite light, especially the two that we got so sometimes I wish the colour was a little more intensive but I guess the liner makes up for that but if I had one thing to complain about it would probably be this.

Diorshow Fusion Mono

Alright, this is a product which I have not gotten yet, BUT, I have been contemplating it ever since it came out so it comes in two shades, 541 Equinoxe and 841 Rosée and unfortunately I have only seen Equinoxe and it is this gorgeous champagne colour full of shimmer and it will be a wonderful product to use just when you want to bling up ur eyeshadow or maybe even as a highlighter.

The only reason I didn’t get this item was because I don’t have much use for it but I can’t guarantee anything right now so it might show up in my collection in the future. =] But I would love the see the Rosée shade as well.

5 Couleurs Glowing Gardens

I think if you have already seen the collection of even taken a glimpse at it you will ALL know what I am talking about. Personally, one of the most eye catching items from this range are the palettes. Both palettes scream spring and exude a very relaxing aura and they put me in a good mood just by looking at it.

The palettes come in two combinations, one being the 451 Rose Garden palette and the other the 031 Blue Garden palette. We purchased the Rose Garden palette because it was the warmer palette out of the two and the colours suited our skin tone more. To be completely honest neither of the palettes are very everyday go to kind of colours but we knew that we had to have a palette from the collection and after doing lots and lots of swatches we decided to go with the Rose Garden.

For pigmentation and application and all, it is like any other Dior palette so we definitely did not have to worry about quality and even right now as this post is being written, we are still trying to work out ways to wear this palette more often.

Diorskin Nude Air Glowing Gardens

This will be the last item for this post and I must admit, this item was something I didn’t even consider getting when I first looked upon the collection online however after seeing it in store and doing a few swatches we both knew we had to have it. Firstly the packaging is gorgeous and it really does make a difference when you use it, subtle but visible. We got it in the shade 001 Glowing Pink as it suited us more but it does also come in 002 Glowing Nude and to be honest I think they’re both quite wearable regardless of skin tone because they’re both really really REALLY soft when applied so I guess depending on how you want to use it, you can choose the shade that way.

Alright, now this is all we have for this post and hope you guys enjoyed it if you guys purchased or love any of the items mentioned above please let us know !!

Take care and we will talk to you guys soon.
