New Dior Addict Lacquer Sticks: Swatches and It Shades!
It seems Dior’s new Dior Addict Lacquer Sticks are the new lip accessory to have. It’s not just the genius design of the “edgy-girly” black tubes outlined in see-through jelly pink.
The formula marries the gloss and cushy comfort of the original Dior Addict lip range with new-generation pigment technology for higher pay-off. The surprising thing for me was that these actually lasted for a decent amount of time on the lips. The level of shine does obviously wear away after a few hours of talking and drinking, but the pigments for many of the stronger shades do a pretty good job of clinging on, to the point of needing a proper makeup remover to get them off at the end of the day.
The 4 “It” Shades are lip swatched above:
877 Turn Me Dior - red-fuchsia as seen on Jennifer Lawrence
684 Diabolo - neon doll pink
924 Sauvage - prune noir
550 Tease - fleshy peach-pink
All 18 shades shown here will be pre-launched from today (23 March) exclusively at the ION Orchard Dior Backstage Boutique, and available at the rest of the counters in Singapore from 1 April.
There are 16 shades in the range - 8 in a creamy matte finish, and 8 in high shine finish. All are enriched with vitamin E, are 100% free of parabens, mineral oils and perfume. They are super comfortable to wear and very long lasting.
@lilitalcIs this what you wanted? ^^ I couldn’t remember the exact RGB code I used for many of my previews but I tried to recreate my favourites combinations. I really hope you like it. I’m planning to do this with my others lipsticks as well but it will take a little time. Sorry for made you wait for so long ♥
Last month I attended a MAC Cosmetics event to celebrate their launch onto the Look Fantastic website. Whilst there I picked up a selection of products from their new limited edition CHROMAT collection, as well as a few classics from their permanent lines.
I wanted to show you the two lipsticks & eyeshadow palette from the limited edition collection, and two of their new metallic lipsticks.
First up we have ‘#ShockValue’ a bright aqua Blue lipstick in a Amplified finish; Opaque full coverage finish, great pay-off with a light sheen to it. Then we have ‘Augmented Reality’ a strong candy Red in a Matte finish; No shine, full coverage and long lasting. Both feature the architecturally inspired bionic 3D patterned packaging, distinctive across the entire collection. RRP £16.50 / $17.50 each.
The two Metallic Lips I picked up at the event are named ‘Cold Front’ (pictured on the left below) which is a frosted periwinkle Blue, and ‘Anything Once’ a Blackened blue with multi-coloured pearl running throughout.
As we know, metallic lips have been trending recently but personally I’m not the biggest fan, I think metallic lips belong on the catwalk or high fashion photo-shoots over everyday wear. But that’s just my taste, however, I do LOVE the colour of Cold Front. If you do fancy rocking the reflective lip, I would advise pairing it with a simple eye of just mascara and / or some spikey lashes. RRP £16.50 / $17.50 each.
This really is beautiful! Once again, it features the special packaging distinctive to the CHROMAT collection. It contains a vibrant ocean Blue shade and a pearlescent deep Orange - which are complementary colours on the colour wheel, so this means they would work really well together for a contrasting look. The palette also contains a Brown with a Green pearl running through it, a rich Black, a pearlescent Navy, and a metallic gunmetal shade. All of these eyeshadows can be used wet or dry, perfect for a modern smokey eye with a pop of colour! Check out the swatches below:
Sabina Sangre: Deep Orange with Gold pearl
Duabandita: Brown with Green pearl
Structured Satin: Rich Black
Mindfiles: Metallic Silver with pearl
Triennial Wave: Vibrant ocean Blue
Blue Black: Navy Blue with Blue pearl
This limited edition palette retails for £25.00 / $32.00
