I’m not the most experienced when it comes to high end make-up but I do enjoy the luxury of it – the warm feeling you get when you’re using a Chanel perfume or a Guerlain lipstick. So it happens that over the past year or so I’ve managed to accumulate a few Dior bits & bobs. Let me show them (off) to you and tell you what I think about them price versus value.
This is actually the second travel lip gloss set from Dior I’ve had. The very first one (which consisted of slightly different shades) was a present from my Mum (thanks Mum!) who bought it in Sephora in Paris yonks ago (literally, I must have been about 12?). The second one was a fairly recent repurchase for this summer. Dior lip glosses are not sticky at all and have a very luxurious almost perfumey scent to them, mmmm. And you can tell by the state of the packaging that I’ve been using them to death those poor little things.
I own two Dior lipsticks – Dior Voluptuous in Mysterious Mauve and Dior Addict in Parisian Chic. Mysterious Mauve is a strong, I almost want to say – an aggressive purple shade with a hint of pearlescence. Not something I would wear every day – it’s more of a going out shade for me. Parisian Chic is on the very opposite side of the lipstick spectrum – it’s your very girly and very shimmery pink shade for every day wear.
All three nail polishes I have (Darling, Amazonia and Red Royalty) are equally stunning. I was sensible enough to pick three very wearable shades to be fair so that’s probably one of the reasons why I wear all three of them pretty regularly. Red Royalty is your standard Hollywood red which everyone should own. Just saying.
