"Light-infused colours are borrowed from the Mediterranean shores. The Croisette collection cultivates the art of contrast between solar shades and sea-blues"
When the Dior Croisette collection first hit the shelves, I must confess that I was immediately in awe in front of the color range. I found everything about this collection absolutely stunning. But of course I should have anticipated that considering how much I loved Saint Tropez when it was released last year...
1 Couleur Eye Gloss
Everything was perfect about this eyeshadow : application, pigmentation, shimmer,... I was kind of worried about drying time and possible smudging, creasing or smearing but it actually dried in a flash. And it's waterproof, perfect for the Summer indeed.
Available in : 020 Seashell, 560 Tan, 240 Azur and 750 Sunset.
Available in 2 versions, either matte (Nude Glow) or shimmery (Healthy Glow) but both in a spendid compact powder embossed with silver "cannage". I absolutely love how modern and precious these feel. The powder itself is very light, soft and applies smoothly thanks to the kabuki brush included. The shimmer remains very subtle. Must have.
Nude Glow Sun Powder available in :
001 Miel/Honey, 003 Cannelle/Cinnamon, 005 Caramel/Toffee (All year)
and 002 Ambre/Amber, 004 Epice/Spicy, 006 Sienne/Sienna (Summer)
Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder available in :
001 Aurora, 003 Zenith (All year)
002 Sunlight, 004 Sunset (Summer)
Retractable turquoise eyeliner pencil that comes with a removable sharpener. Creamy and pigmented, it's very soft, delivers excellent coverage and just a touch of sparkle. Again, this is waterproof.
5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette
Available in 224 Swimming Pool and 654 Aurora
Aurora contains exactly the type of colors I am attracted to as a brunette. Warm, deep, sparkly earthly tones mixed with shimmery and satin nudes. Well pigmented and easily blendable, they also have a very soft feeling.
Addict Lip Balm
Super smooth and with a nice rose scent, the hydrating formulation of these lip balms is obvious with the first stoke on the lips. It does take a significant amount of product for the balm to actually provide good staying power but that's fine with me. Only downside would be the tint on the "colored" balms. Quite translucent, you will see very little difference between the shades so I'd suggest you just get the one that appeals to you the most.
Available in 001 Crystal, 002 Crystal Pink and 003 Crystal Coral.
|001 Crystal / 003 Crystal Coral|
I have extensively reviewed Bikini and Saint Tropez so I'll just just keep it very short : amazing formula and amazing colors! You can read my original post here if you want more details ;-)
