I always look forward to the launch of the new Dior spring collection! It’s always one of my favourite collections of the whole year. This year’s launch does not disappoint. Beautiful pink shades, floral textures, luminous powders, I love it all!
The collection is called Growing Gardens, which totally describes the collection perfectly. My favourite new product is the illuminating powder. It comes housed in a beautiful compact, and I love the luminous effect it creates on the top of the cheek bones. Not glittery and not too light. It creates a perfect, subtle strobing effect and reflects light beautifully. I also love the two contouring compacts. They work great for sculpting cheeks, adding bronzer and blush.
I’m also loving this new Dior Capture Totale cream. I’ve actually never tried Dior skincare products before, so I was excited to try it. The cream boasts to “unify your skintone from its deepest layers to its surface, leaving skin perfectly tautened and toned while all visible signs of aging – wrinkles, loss of firmness and radiance, and uneven skin tone – are corrected.” I’ve been using it at night and love the cooling effect of the cream. It feels really silky and the smell is delicious.
This is also my first time testing out Dior foundation. I tried the Diorskin ForeverPerfect Makeup, Everlasting Wear, Pore-Refining Effect with SPF 35 + Shine Control in shade 101. It has great coverage and definitely evened out my skintone. I would recommend trying it if you are in the market for a new foundation.

The new State of Gold holiday collection from Dior is basically every gold-lovers dream. This is one collection you won’t be stashing away in any makeup bag. It’s totally display-worthy. Plus, there’s something for everyone. Into red? You’ll love the nail polish in 991 Mystere and the lipstick in 750 Fabuleuse. Love wearing pink? You’ll definitely want the lipsticks in 430 Radieuse and 770 Fantasique. Wanting to add some shimmer and shine for the holidays? The Dior Addict Gloss in 322 Sparkle and Dior Diorific Vernis in 951 Passion are a must! Really loving these eye palettes too.

To me, this collection hits on all of my must-haves when it comes to a holiday collection: gold, shimmer, glitter and pops of pink and red.
It basically felt like Christmas morning when the new Dior Summer 2015 collection landed on my doorstep. Summer makeup is by far my favourite. I’m forever a fan of juicy lip shades, bright nail colours, bronze details and rosy cheeks.
The theme of the newest Dior collection is tie-dye, with colours that fluctuate, stretch and transform, as though saturated by light.

Spring is almost here and it’s safe to say that I’m 100% over everything to do with winter. The weather, my winter wardrobe and winter makeup and did I mention the weather? I’ve retired my winter clothes and I’ve now stashed away all of the “winter-ey” makeup to make room for new spring arrivals.
One of my favourite new spring arrivals is this collection from Dior. Doesn’t looking at it just make you happier? I have the two pink shades of lipstick and lipgloss (the dark and the light) on constant rotation right now. If you’re not one for splurging on the more expensive makeup brands and always stick to drug store brands, you’re not alone. Alot of my makeup collection is not expensive. However, if you try out these lipsticks and lipglosses you will see why sometimes it’s nice to spend a little extra. They go on smoother, creamier, and help to moisturize your lips that may be still dry and cracked (like mine are) from the cold weather. They also last longer. Check out the pictures below.

The other new spring arrival I couldn’t wait to share with you all is the newest fragrance by Dolce & Gabanna, Floral Drops. The fragrance features top notes of neroli leaves and papaya flower. Heart notes of white amaryllis, white daffodil and white water lily. Base notes of cashmeran, musky notes and sandalwood. The bottle features a sculpted flower cap with milky white petals and frosted glass in a misty green, all tied with a pretty black bow.
Basically, this fragrance smells like you bottled up a garden party. It’s fresh, floral and all kinds of lovely. I’ll be sporting this one all spring long!
