New Releases: Dior

Dior has recently released two collections in New Zealand: the Nude Air Collection (lightweight skin-like bases) and the Tie-Dye Collection (tie-dye inspired summer colors). I’ve tried a piece from each collection–one didn’t quite work for me, while the other is j’adore.

I had hopes that my skin would be treated well by the Diorskin Nude Air Serum, but I may have had the misconception of a serum-based foundation being synonymous with hydrating. Those with dry skin, like me, should stay away as the formula clings to dry patches dearly. On the other hand, I believe a lot of normal to combination skin types would highly adore the semi-matte medium-coverage that the Nude Air Serum offers. The finish is just beautiful and definitely natural looking. 

Meanwhile, the 2015 summer collection sees the release of Dior Addict Lipsticks Tie-Dye Edition. The lipsticks in this range have a core in a different colour which adds depth to each shade, as you’ll notice with the Christian Dior initials. Out of the six shades, I have Fuschia Utopia which is a blend of bright pink and pale pink. This goes on sheer and is almost balm-like in terms of moisture. Absolutely perfect for summer!
