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.

MODELS OWN

Models Own are renown for their super cute nail polish stands, inhabited by an array colours that would put the biggest double rainbow to shame!
But the company is rapidly becoming known for much more than nail polish… Models Own have recently expanded and opened their first flagship store in Westfield Shopping Centre (Stratford, London) and filled it with a whole host of makeup products in a variety of stunning collections!! 
This week I received some of their latest products and they are simply amazing! 

Pictured above are 4 of their Luxestick lipsticks which come in 3 different finishes: 
Creamy Matte - available in 5 shades 
Velvet - available in 10 shades 
Matte - available in 10 shades

I have two lipsticks in a Matte finish (pictured left) and two in the Velvet finish (pictured right). 
Here are the swatches in both natural daylight and under mobile flash. You can see that the product stay true to the shade of the lipstick bullet even under the flash. Their staying power is fantastic and I had to use an oil-based remover to get them off my arm. 

Each Luxestick Lipstick retails at £7.99, but Models Own have an offer online and in-store during February where you can get a free Luxestick lipstick when you spend £10 or more. You just need to add the code LUXE10 at the checkout.

Next up are Models Owns ‘Colour Chrome Eyeshadow Kits’. When I popped in store a couple of weeks back the girls swatched these for me and I was absolutely blown away by the pigment pay-off! Much like the lipstick, I had to remove the swatches with an oil-based remover as they would not budge!

The kit comes with a little mixing tray, a primer liquid and the metallic eyeshadow. Again, 10 shades are available in this collection and I have 3 of them to show you. 
The consistency is very creamy and it glides on with ease using your finger or a brush. It’s a thick medium and a little goes a long, so you can use the primer to dilute the cream but I feel the thickness adds to the intense metallic pay-off.

I have swatched the eyeshadow straight from the pot on the left, and on the right I have mixed the eyeshadow with a tiny amount of the primer. If you use too much you get more of a wishy-washy pay-off so bare that in mind.
Personally, I don’t really see the point of the primer. There wasn’t any obviously contrast with and without the primer (unless you use too much) and it lasted just the same without.
I think it’s phenomenal all on it’s own! I will definitely be stocking more of these in my kit. 

Each Colour Chrome Kit retails at £14.99

The last three swatches I have to show you are from the MyShadow Cream Eyeshadow Collection. Once more there are 10 beautiful shades available in this range. 
Just to clarify incase you thought I had swatched the same shade twice, I happened to chose 2 almost identical eyeshadows from this assembly. I’m quite surprised by how similar they are, in my opinion I think one should have been a bit deeper or brighter in tone to differentiate the two. 

The MyShadow Cream Eyeshadows are less shiny than the Colour Chrome pots, but still have a gorgeous shimmery glow. The consistency is creamy with a smooth finish compare to the thick finish of the Chrome pots, and would go on the eyes best with your finger rather than using a brush. 

Each pot retails at £6.99

Overall, I am a massive fan of these products and I am excited by what Models Own have produced for us thus far! They have hit the floor running and I look forward to seeing AND trying more from them throughout 2017! 

Let me know if you have tried any of the Models Own makeup and what you think?

I’ve been asked quite a few times about swatches I use in my notes and in my journal. As you can see my favorite is probably the grey Mildliner 😂 I use my Muji gel ink pen in 0.38 with all of these. Pictured: Zebra Mildliners. Stabilo point 88 pens. Staedtler Triplus Fineliner nature pack. My new Pentel brush pen.

PS - sorry the lines aren’t very straight, I have a hard time drawing straight lines on unlined paper 😂
