Dior Transatlantique Summer Makeup Collection 2014………….Cruising in The Blue Coral!!!
After watching the latest Application video’s by Dior for their new Summer Transat makeup collection, i had to go and have a look at what was on offer. I very rarely opt for many products from Dior summer collections. I do love the nude tan enhancing powders reviewed here and here; however this time, i like a lot of the collection.
What i opted for in the end were three items, which were a mascara, eye liner and lipstick.
Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Waterproof Mascara, 351 Cruise Blue.
Gives long curling separated lashes from the first coat. I love this colour.
Its a mid blue, rather than the classic navy blue that never really ever shows up on the lashes. This one shoes up immediately and lashes do not go crispy either. I prefer to wear one coat of black mascara and then put this as the second coat to avoid a bit of overkill.I have blue eyes already.Would also look beautiful on brown eyes too.
The only gripe i have about the normal formula Iconic Overcurl is that it thickens quite quickly compared to other Dior mascara’s which end up lasting twice as long.
This is the first time i have ever used the waterproof version though, so i will keep you posted on how long it lasts. I do love the feel of it on my lashes though.No clumping either.
Diorshow Art Pen, 385 Bleu Croisière Eyeliner.
I’m not really used to using these felt tip sytle eyeliner pens. I only own one other and i do not have the steadiest of hands so; i very rarely use them. I do like this one for one reason; and that is, it does not dry down completely and i can correct mistakes.It can be smudged out too.
I like the shade of blue because it’s not too deep, (more a Cobalt blue) but can be if you press down harder with the pen.
If you are an expert with these pens then you can achieve great things. I can do basics with it. Lovely art pen.
Dior Addict Lipstick, 611 Cruise.
I love this lipstick so much. Dior Addict Lipsticks are the equivalent of Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shines, (Intense). They impart a water-like feel to the lips and give great moisture and shine as well. Ideal for summertime!
Cruise is a beautiful coral/orange shade. Gives great pigmentation and makes my lips look luscious and plump.
No, it doesn’t last on the lips all day but it does last a good couple of hours before you need to re-apply and gives a nice stain to the lips too.
Right are swatches compared to other coral lipstick shades i own.
Have you purchased any of the Dior Transat Summer collection? Let me know your fav’s. See you all soon. 😉
