This is probably a not-so-smart question because you can clearly tell what I have in this lovely shopping bag if you have read the title to this post.
Tadahhhhhh~~ The Dior Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Blush and the Dior Addict Extreme Lipsticks in 326 Incognito, 366 Pink Icon and 639 Riviera.
Let's take a look at the Dior Addict Extreme Lipsticks first.
"Dior Addict fashion lipstick goes to the Extrême, with radiant colours, a perfect hold wet-look texture, and audacious, sophisticated Dior styles."source
There are 17 shades listed on the Dior website but at the moment only 12 are available in Malaysia.
*Please excuse my unsightly nails. I am not painting them at the moment because they are very damaged (keeps breaking and peeling) as I haven't been taking care of them properly. So I am giving them a break from nail polishes.
This is number 326 Incognito (On the Dior website Incognito is listed as number 316 instead of 326, not sure why there's a discrepancy in the numbering).
366 Pink Icon.
The Diorskin Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Blush in 001 Petal.
"ROSY GLOW reacts with the moisture in each skin type, giving a delicious and subtle blush to the cheeks. When applied, the initially fresh, light colour develops into a rosy blush to suit each individual complexion, for an ultra-natural, tailor-made healthy glow that lasts all day."source
Initially I wasn't completely convinced about the one colour fits all claim that this blush makes, but when I swatched it on the slightly darker side of my arm, the colour did turn ever so slightly brighter. It's not very obvious in this picture but you can definitely see the nuance in real life.
Overall, I do really like the Dior Addict Extreme lipsticks because I am personally a big fan of lipsticks that are slightly sheer. For a sheerer lipstick, these do have a pretty good staying power as the texture is slightly heavier and feels a little tacky on the lips(on my lips they lasted for about 4 hours, when I hardly talked, didn't eat and drank from a bottle). Although everyone raves about how moisturizing these are, I do not find them so. I think that these are not particularly moisturizing but not drying either (these lipsticks just leave my lips the way they were when I first apply them). Although the photos of my lip swatches are very washed out (they look quite accurate on my phone but when I uploaded them onto the computer, somehow the colours just becomes fainter for some reason), these shades are vibrant on the lips and would be perfect for spring, summer and tropical weather. And needless to say, the packaging of these lipsticks are super luxe albeit being a little bulky.
The Dior Rosy glow blush is also an amazing product. Apart from the fact that it has a crazy long name, I love the way it looks on my cheeks. On my cheeks it just gives me such a pretty bright pink flush. The powder is also extremely finely milled and smooth, and it does not emphasize imperfections on the skin. Although the Dior website claims that it lasts all day, I would say that this blush went on strong for 6 hours and then it began to slowly fade (but still visible till hour number 9).
I am still eyeing the Dior Addict Extreme lipsticks in 336 Saint Tropez and 486 Cruise but my beauty budget is a little tight at the moment. >-<
