FOTD with some Dior Spring products

Let’s just jump right into it, shall we? The first look is a very natural barely there makeup look. I really dislike pinks on my eyes, but this cream shadow in 841 Rosée is described as a tea rose. It is undoubtedly pink, but warmer with a tinge of beige. It’s also quite sheer, which makes it all the more wearable. There are quite a lot of tiny shimmers in this shadow, so if you don’t like glitters on your eyes, then you’ll want to skip this. Dior cream shadows last on my unprimed lids about 4 hours before they start fading, and with this lighter shade that’s closer to my skintone, it’s definitely more forgiving.

I paired this shadow with the pro liner in 072 Pro Taupe. It glides on very easily, and the slanted tip of the liner (which reminds me of a brow pencil) makes it so much easier to create a slight wing. I used this on my upper and lower lash lines. This shade is perfect to add some shadow / dimension to the eyes without looking like you actually have liner on. It’s very subtle and I’ve grown to really like this liner. It is waterproof and it does not smear or budge. I need to use oil based remover to get this off. Micellar water did not do the job properly.

Then I finished the look with Lip Glow in Lilac. It doesn’t tint very much, and I find that Lilac evens out my lips more effortlessly than the original one (which makes my lips quite red). The Lip Glow liner doesn’t add much color to the lips, other than providing a tacky base for the lipstick / gloss. However, it does leave a tingling sensation to my lips, and any lip products that are applied on top do look much better – less lines, much smoother.

Here’s the look.

Here is another one, just to put it in here, easy eyes using the shadow liner duo in 157 Iris. I used the shadow all over my mobile lids, and the liner smudged into it, giving it a bluish purple finish. It is again, quite shimmery, so I made sure I didn’t apply the shadow too high up my eyes. I find that the shadow doesn’t apply too evenly, and I think it’s very likely due to the uneven disbursement of the glitters. I would have liked it better if it was a metallic finish rather than a glittery one. I have yet to swatch the rest of the colors, but I have my eye on the brown one. We’ll see.

Back to the first look.

It was a very hot day, so I skipped blush. In photos, Rosée doesn’t look very shimmery, but in real life, the glitters are more obvious. Because of that, I am careful to apply it closer to my lash lines, and only on my mobile lid. For the base, I used Dior BB Cream and set it with the powder from the Holiday collection – Diorific State of Gold Illuminating Pressed Powder in 002 Sumptuous Pink. The powder is not very finely milled, but the effect is surprisingly like the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders. It gives a glow to the skin, with little to no coverage. If only the texture could be improved.

Here are the products all in one photo. If you have any questions about the products used, please let me know!

    Oh! So pretty! Especially the Rosee and Lilac. On you, it doesn’t look too shimmery which is a good thing! Because like you, I avoid the sparkles!

    • Lily

      Right? When it’s too sparkly, I feel like Barbie, and it’s not a good thing. Hahahaha! I like very subtle shimmers, and for that, I think Japanese brands like Lunasol does it right. I like Bobbi Brown’s too 🙂

      • ML Chan

        😉 subtle shimmer FTW!

  • Anne Sanderson

    Both eye shadows and liners look so pretty. You say that in the second look you’re wearing the shadow and liner duo in Lilac. Do you mean the Hortensia one which I think looks like lilac or is there one actually called lilac? Thank you.

    • Lily

      Oh, the shadow liner duo is actually in 157 Iris. Sorry! I’ll go amend that right now. Thanks for bringing it up Anne!

      • Anne Sanderson

        Thank you very much for your clarification. It is a pity you say you’re not very impressed with Iris. I really like this shade and was thinking of getting it but now I’m not sure . 🙂

        • Lily

          Well, you should try it for yourself either way. You might like it 🙂

  • the lilac is lovely =) not very shimmery at all. The rosee is beautiful. I actually love pink-ish looking e/s! 🙂

    • Lily

      Really? I really dislike pink shadows, and I don’t keep any, unless it’s in a palette or it’s a warm pink that doesn’t look much like pink, if that makes sense. This one though, I like 🙂

  • I wish Dior would stop with so much glitter. I feel like they’re getting worse with it too for some reason. It’s a shame really. Like just make a metallic or a satin finish would that kill them? Sigh. I do like your looks though! Although, it’s nothing I can’t recreate with what I have at home. Money SAVED hahaha.

    • Lily

      Yay for money saved! I don’t have anything similar to this eye color because I don’t keep any pink shadows. HAHAHAHA! This one though, I might just keep. I like shimmers in my shadows, but not chunky glitters. Rosee is really pretty, but Iris is a little chunky. The liner glides on like butter and is SUPER pigmented though! Very impressed! You have to swatch it at least and you’ll know what I mean 🙂

  • I like how you did the pink eyeshadow. I know it’s tricky, I bought a pink cream stick one the other day, and it reminded me why I stay away from them lol! (I’m still kicking myself for not having learnt the lesson yet haha. I dont know how to use it other than camouflaging it with brown eyeshadow on top and loads of black liner, sigh!

    • Lily

      LOL Sofia. I can understand you. I don’t learn either. I usually just give up and give my pink shadows to someone else 😛

      • I was thinking about doing that…

      • I’ve given it away to my cousin’s girlfriend who is cooler toned, fair and way blonder than me. It must look good on her!

        • Lily

          Oh yay! Are you going to find a replacement for that now? LOL 🙂

          • I already did, and it wasn’t pink haha (I got an Armani Eye Tint thing in Senso, ooops…)

            • Lily

              Senso is LOVELY!!! You should look as Rose Ashes. I think that’s pretty too. Not exactly pink, but a warmer beige with multi pink-ish shimmers that we can definitely wear.

  • I rather like that purple on you. Too bad it’s not as well behaved as we’d like with these kind of thingamajigs.

    • Lily

      Right? Maybe it’s just me though, and maybe it’s just this shade. I don’t have the time to go to the mall yet, but once I get a feel on the other shades, I’ll report back 🙂

  • Flawlessss! (read that in a Beyoncé voice please)

    Seriously, you look so pretty!

    • Lily

      Aaw, thank you!
