“This spring, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, presents Colour Gradation to re-enchant the gradient makeup trend, a precise but intuitive technique that celebrates colour in all its splendor. Lips are enhanced with a blend of weightless shades, eyes are illuminated with vivid colour harmonies and the face is brightened with evanescent blushes. As a welcome to the beautiful days ahead, Peter Philips offers women in Dior the freedom to go bold with colour ― intense or natural ― and express their very own unique beauty.” – DIOR
4 COLOURS EYESHADOW PALETTE – COUTURE NUANCE
Dior creates a brand new eye makeup palette that plays on four tone variations with a springtime glow and comes adorned with the iconic Dior “plissé” pleating.
The palette is available in two harmonies, one based on a fresh blue and the other on pink.
– Blue Gradation: 4 tones from sky blue to the purest azure
– Coral Gradation: 4 tones from light coral to carnal bronze
001 BLUE GRADATION
I am not a huge fan of blue eyeshadow on me, I do though really like how the colours are in harmony with each other. I love the mix of mint, duck egg, cobalt, and sapphire. On the right skin tones these colours would pop.
002 CORAL GRADATION
This harmony is totally me. I love the pale pink, the light caramel, the coral and the bronze. I could do magic with these colours in my kit. One of my all time favourite makeup tips is to apply a little bit of blush to the lids to soften a smokey look, and that coral is perfect to give a soft finish. I think this has to be one of my wishlist products.
DIORSHOW MONO – SPRING 2017 LIMITED EDITION
Diorshow Mono, the eyeshadow used by the Dior makeup artists, was inspired by the fabric textures of the brand’s fashions matte and features super-saturated hues to deck the eyes in long-lasting colors with radiant finishes.
391 NOW & 474 EARLY
A limited edition pop of teal colour 391. Perfectly on trend for a fresh spring look. I would mix this colour with a little copper for a glam effect. Or perhaps wear it as an eyeliner by applying with a angled brush along my lashlines, for a more modern look.
Or perhaps a splash of Lime 474 for the brave. This for me I wouldn’t wear, I would love to have it in my kit for a shoot, as on the right model this could be a lot of fun.
ROUGE GRADIENT – SPRING 2017 LIMITED EDITION
LIP SHADOW DUO POWDERY – MATTE FINISH
Dior creates Rouge Gradient, its first “Lip Shadow” duo for custom colour gradation. An ultra-comfortable, creamy formula applied with the soft and supple foam tip for a weightless matte finish like no other.
This layering technique with a weightless effect creates an ultra-fresh gradient blend that can go lighter or bolder to suit your desires.
Three shade duos: delicate pink, bold red and deep plum.
I am a fan of pink lipsticks so I think I would really like this colour combination. I think ombre lips are so on trend right now that this is just perfect to layer up and give the lips perfect definition.
I like that since there is a neutral pink as well as the red this in perfect for day to night looks while only carrying one product in your bag. For me this is a win.
As I mentioned in other posts I am not a huge fan of plums and purples on me, but for some one who loves those tones this is just amazing.
DIOR ADDICT GRADIENT LIPSTICK – SPRING 2017 LIMITED EDITION
HYDRA-GEL CORE MIRROR SHINE
With its sensational mirror shine, Dior Addict Gradient graces lips with a duo of spring shades in a tone-on-tone blend. Enriched with lipcare oil, the stick has a second lighter shade in the center that creates a top coat effect.
5 shades: 430 PEACH TWIST, 459 CORAL TWIST, 559 ROSE TWIST, 760 FUCHSIA TWIST, 850 PINK TWIST.
LIP SUGAR SCRUB
SELF-VANISHING SWEET EXFOLIATING LIP BALM – COLOR AWAKENING
All makeup artists know that healthy, moisturized lips are the key to optimal colour impact. The latest from the Backstage Pros, Lip Sugar Scrub is an exfoliating and nourishing stick with grains of sugar that melt away, for incredibly softer lips and naturally rosified, as if metamorphosed. At any time of day, generously apply the stick, gliding along the lip or massaging in small circles to smooth, rehydrate and nourish dry skin. For optimal exfoliation, rub the grainy texture between your lips together to melt the grains of sugar.
Sugar scrubs are definitely trending and there are a couple of brands which brought them into the market recently. I like the idea but I think it might encourage me to eat off all my lip tint. I am willing to try it though.
DIOR ADDICT LIP GLOW – SPRING 2017 LIMITED EDITION
Dior Addict Lip Glow is the must-have from Dior Backstage to enhance the lips and bring out their natural colour.
The first universal balm by Dior reacts to the unique chemistry of each woman’s lips to give them a natural flush of custom pink that suits her skin tone. As if revived from within, lips are fresh, full and radiant.
My kind of novelty. I love colour changing products. The colour is listed at 001 BERRY, so it gives the impression of a purple sheen, yet the description says pink. Since it changes with each woman’s lip chemistry it’s a bit hard to have an exact idea without trying it.
ROUGE DIOR BRILLANT
LIPSHINE AND CARE, COUTURE COLOUR
Coming in two delicate pinks, these lip glosses are ideal to wear on their own or over your favorite lipstick.
047 MISS & 468 BONHEUR
These two shades are pretty in pink, and sum up the Spring season perfectly. I think the nuder gloss BONHEUR is my favourite from the two.
DIORSKIN NUDE AIR COLOUR GRADATION – SPRING 2017 LIMITED EDITION
BLURRING POWDER SOFT GLOW
Diorskin Nude Air Colour Gradation powder enhances the natural glow of the complexion with a blurring veil of colour that erases imperfections. Apply its exceptionally fine, silky texture on facial contours (top of forehead, top of cheekbones, bridge of nose, chin) to catch the light.
RISING PINK & RADIANT NUDE
I am really excited by both products, a pale pink or gold to illuminate facial features with a sheer glow. I love highlighters as much as the next girl, but I like my highlight to be soft. Think Guerlians Meteorites which I reviewed here. I don’t like a full on highlight which is why I find it difficult to shop for just the right product. I think I’m going to need to wish list this, the only problem is which one? The packaging is also just wow.
DIORBLUSH COLOUR GRADATION – SPRING 2017 LIMITED EDITION
VIBRANT COLOUR – POWDER BLUSH
The limited edition Diorblush Colour Gradation creates two radiant gradations that caress the cheeks and flush them with pink.
Adorned with the iconic “plissé” pleating, this collector’s edition comes in two healthy glow shades:
– a variation of vibrant corals
– a crescendo of intense pinks
001 PINK SHIFT & 002 CORAL TWIST
A pretty coral blush, great for spring while we are pale to give our cheeks a healthy glow. And vibrant pink to perk up most complexions.
DIOR VERNIS – SPRING 2017 LIMITED EDITION
COUTURE COLOUR, GEL SHINE, LONG WEAR NAIL LACQUER
Discover these four bold shades of Dior Vernis with a slightly pearly center to get that coveted glossy finish.
340 MAYBE – vibrant peach shade (Limited Edition)
505 EARLY – bright yellow/lime (Limited Edition)
800 NOW – deep blue/teal
873 SUDDEN – shocking pink (Limited Edition)
Dior has revealed four different nail polish shades for spring 2017 so far, all of them vibrant and very unexpected. I think my favourite has to be EARLY even though I wouldn’t wear its eyeshadow counterpart I would rock this lime yellow on my nails.
I hope you enjoyed reading over this bold beautiful Dior products.
Love Steph x
