I'm all for pinks in springtime, so I was thrilled to see some fun releases in the Dior Spring collection. I can't resist a hot pink gloss, so i picked up the Addict Gloss in 772 Exquise and the Fusion Matte Mono Eyeshadow in 761 Mirage.
When it comes to the gloss, I can't believe I hadn't tried these before. I love the scent-free, non-drying formula, and this pink shade is pink without being so in your face. It is entirely wearable, and I am happy to report that the color doesn't horrify me when it transfers!
The eyeshadow, on the other hand, is a bit confusing to me. The name of the product says it is matte, but there is actually shimmer in this one. A very fine shimmer that I find pretty, but it is definitely not matte. Having never tried these eyeshadows before (they all seemed too shimmery for me before!), I really quite like the soft, almost spongy texture of these shadows. Sadly, this doesn't wear too well on me without primer - it fades and creases a bit with some shimmer migrating by lunchtime. With primer, this eyeshadow is a great everyday color, either by itself or for blending with other shades. I'm just a little depressed that I have to wear primer with it, and I'm not sure how to feel about that...
Here's how these look on me. What do you think? Sorry I had to resort to this photo - I can't seem to catch the sun at all lately! And my skin is not so cute but I'm too lazy to put on concealer haha!
In the end, I think I've decided to return the eyeshadow. If I don't entirely love it, I think there's no point in keeping it! I also plan to do a comparison post of a few pink glosses later in the week. :)
Have you picked up anything from the Dior Spring 2014 collection? I'd love to know what you got and how they worked out for you!
