I have 3 little things to show you from Dior’s Spring 2015 collection. I have a Dior Addict Lip Maximizer (RM97), a top coat in Ecloision (RM80) and a Cheek & Lip Glow (RM140). These are already available at Dior counters nationwide, I was told, so I got this post out before the collection is gone. I’m not going to talk about the Lip Maximizer because I already wrote a full review on it 2 years ago, and my thoughts remain the same. I used up 2 tubes already, mainly for the “lipgasm” not for the bee stung lips.

 

Dior Spring 2015

 

It’s no secret that I’m just not good at nail stuff and I struggle just to get the colours even on my nails. I have always been fascinated by those who can paint their nails beautifully, and those who can do nail art on themselves are from another world. I had my fingers crossed the first time I was trying this top coat, and guess what? Even a moron like me could make it work (sorta). The little bits of tiny pastel confetti add fun to any nail colour. Ecloision is much easier to work with compared to the gold flakes I showed you previously (from their Holiday collection). It also camouflages a not so perfect base which for me is just perfect 😉

 

Ecloision

 

From this collection, I was most interested in this Cheek and Lip Glow and their Lip Baumes. I haven’t tried the latter, but this Cheek & Lip Glow caught my eye from far away. Literally. Look at it. It is so neon, it literally glows in the dark! I was curious how it would look on my cheeks and lips because who wants a neon blush right? The texture of it reminds me of Benetint. It is runny and very fluid but this one is more pigmented. The applicator reminds me of that limited edition Clarins liquid blush that I used up, only this is fatter.

Pictures above were taken the first time I swatched it. I expected it to be a little creamy and it’s runny. When I blended out that liquid streak, I certainly didn’t expect to see that darker stain in the middle! This alerted me to be careful when applying it on my cheeks. I find that the best way to apply this is to dot some on my fingers and then pat it on. A little goes a VERY long way and it’s best to layer it on slowly. It gives a bright pink flush if applied too much but when applied with a light hand, this Cheek & Lip Glow gives the most youthful and fun blush to the face.

On the lips however, is another story. I don’t like it. I have this fear of eating my makeup and this liquid has the tendency to seep into my mouth. It tastes sweet by the way. It makes my lips look baby pink, and it’s really cute, but no. I freak out every time I use it. Even just a tiny dot of this makes me clamp my lips shut. LOL! I don’t know why because I don’t feel that way with glosses or lipsticks. Weird, I tell you. I will show you guys how this looks on me in the next stash shopping post on Sunday.

Have you seen or tested any of the Kingdom of Colours collection? I haven’t been to a makeup counter for a few months now so I’ve only tested these which were sent to me. I read some mixed reviews on the lip baume but I’m interested to try. I hope it’s still available when I finally have the time to go to a Dior counter. Did anything catch your eye?

  • Hey Lily, I actually really like Eclosion! Not sure how often I’d actually wear something like that, but it’s pretty nonetheless! I guess I have to try the stain to know how I feel about it. This is for sure something I wouldn’t want to wear on my lips tho! I just have much better stuff to wear on my lips in general 🙂

    • Lily

      I think I can wear Eclosion anywhere! It’s fun and both Chloe and Ashlyn love it 🙂 And yeah, I would have preferred it if they just stick with Cheek Glow and leave the lips alone >_<

  • Hi Lily,
    I am still trying to sort my feelings about that cheek and lip stain. Like you I know that I hate it on my lips, it is a no go and very drying on me although almost nothing dry mine. On the cheeks I find it better to sweep the applicator than dotting it because as you pointed out the first dot stains and it looks uneven. I am still experimenting with it. Thanks for this review.

    • Lily

      Hi Sara, I’d love to read what you think of this cheek and lip glow. To make it work, we definitely need to blend it as quickly as possible before it sets. Doesn’t have much play time 🙂 It doesn’t dry out my lips, and it turns my lips baby pink, but my problem is more of the liquid seeping into my mouth. LOL!

  • Lily

    Too bad it goes on sheer 🙂

  • The nail top coat looks so fun, I love the mix of colors they did there! Wow, the Lip & Cheek thing sounds a bit creepy. The color reminds me of the Beaute Stain in Flouron, but the texture of that one if more of a thicker gel than liquid.

    • Lily

      I definitely didn’t mean for the cheek and lip glow to sound creepy. HAHAHA!

  • Yikes! That lip and cheek glow looks and sounds scary to me. I kind of forgot about this product, but eh-I think I’ll pass now. There are so many better cheek stains out there than this one.

    • Lily

      This stain works quite well on the cheeks, but I guess it sounds creepy when used on the lips because I freaked out and it translated to my writing. Didn’t mean to scare any of you!

  • Liz

    The only thing I was vaguely interested in from Dior Spring was the lip & cheek glow but… naaaaah. Thanks for killing a lemming! 😉

    • Lily

      LOL OMG. It’s really not that bad. Hahaha!

      • Liz

        I know. Just personally not a fan of sheer watery textures. 🙂

        • Lily

          Sheer watery textures, definitely not for lips!

  • The Lip & Cheek Glos is very appealing to my color-loving eye balls. And dude, you did a great job on your nails! Looks even and nifty to me! With monkey loads of practice, I’ve become very good at doing my nails quickly and almost never need to clean up, BUT nail art??? Anything beyond a glitter fade is mind-blowing to me. I love people who do cute strawberries and pandas and crap, but there is no way I could master that skill!

    • Lily

      I can’t even do glitter fade. I fail at painting my nails 🙁

  • Jaa

    I want to try that Cheek & Lip Glow! I love the color so much! What a pretty pink! I don’t mind runny consistency as long as it is long-lasting! 😀 Why such a neon color on the bottle, though?!

    • Lily

      Ah someone who’s not freaked out by my review. Hahaha! It lasts quite well on my cheeks. The neon doesn’t translate to the skin, thank goodness

  • You have gorgeous nails!! I really like that confetti too coat, will probably be getting it. I’m loving this year’s collection, much better than last years. I’m tempted to get the grey single shadow and the purole mono fusion too.

    • Lily

      Oh yes, Fairy Grey looks great. The purple mono fusion looks good from online swatches too 🙂 Are you going to get them?

  • Very pretty and girly collection it seems from the things you talk about here. I think pink is in this spring (I’m shocked) but I don’t think I’m into what Dior is offering this time.
    I do like the clean nail look with silver confetti on you! 🙂

    • Lily

      I think the top coat Eclosion is the most fun in the collection. I’ve been trying it on top of different nail colours and they all look playful after using this top coat!

  • Love the blue polish topped with the sprinkles (sprinkles LOL). Saw the Lip & Cheek Glow on your latest photo and I do like how it looks on the skin, but am afraid looks quite similar to Benetint which I still have a bottle of!

    • Lily

      Yes, similar to Benetint, but more pigmented. Having either one of them is more than enough I think!

  • That top coat is absolutely adorable, every time I see it on a blogger’s page I want it! I love your color combination. And that cheek tint looks really pretty too!

    • Lily

      Hi Agata, I love this top coat as well. I’ve been wearing it a lot, and it’s not too difficult to remove either.
