Dior Rouge Prêt-À-Porter Swatches

Dior-RougeDior Rouge are my favourite type of lipstick by Dior, as the colour pay off is simply incredible with a subtle hint of powder scent that luckily doesn’t transform onto the lips (not a fan of smelly lips!). Back in August I gave you a peek of the Dior Rouge Prêt-À-Porter, and today I’m showing you how they swatch.

With a slight glossy feel to the lipstick, I love how you only need a light swatch on the lips and you can transform your entire look with a vampy deep lip like the first picture on the left, or an easy going neutral lip if you were to wear Carré D’or. However, given that, I personally wouldn’t layer on coats of Bar or Carré D’Or simply due to the fact they have more shimmer than I would like, and they look better paired with a darker lip to give a slight shimmer to the centre of one’s lip. For the sake of genuine swatches, I wanted to show you what they looked like on their own.

By the way, if you haven’t tried a Rouge Dior before, you have to because the formula is just awesome with a very good pigmentation. – See more at: http://www.nailderella.com/2014/07/dior-fall-2014-swatches.html#sthash.T1VWtdNc.dpuf

What colour could you see yourself wearing? I admit, not all lipsticks excite me, and like every collection I was hesitant on a few of the colours. This time being the two lightest ones, they seemed shimmery in the tube, but both turned out to be somewhat wearable every day colours — if you like shimmer. I like a nice surprise. My favourite on me are the two deepest shades. One day I’ll get enough courage to walk out of the house with the intense deep, rich colours and not worry about having lipstick all over my teeth. How do you do it? When I smile, I smear it all over my teeth. I need help, or your tips. Please share your lipstick wearing tips with me.

Dior Rouge Prêt-À-Porter lipsticks retail for $36CDN and have become available as of August 1, 2014.

Dior Prêt-À-Porter 5-couleur

Dior’s Fall collection has launched as of August 1, 2014. A beautiful, yet powerful set of quad eye shadows launching this season for Dior Prêt-À-Porter. All around easy to wear colours, whether you want a more feminine look, a smoky eye, or an every day neutral — they’re all right here in these three palettes.

The quilted look imprinted into each single eye shadow gives it a more lustrous, and classic look. But don’t let me talk you through the eye shadows, you’ve gotta see to believe the wonders of this collection.

Dior-5-CouleurI’m going to be honest with you. You probably already know by reading my blog that I don’t choose to wear eye shadow all that often, and when I do I gravitate towards the neutrals, as I feel more comfortable blending, and applying them without looking a fool. But you can’t help but enjoy the colours that Dior came up with this season. I think my favourite quad from this collection is the one you spot on the far left. A nice mixture of a soft pink, a white highlight, an easy to wear lid green/taupe colour. Then there’s a nice burgundy and a fantastic rosy pink in the middle. That one is called Trafalger.

Man I missed doing product shots on the blog. I think that’s my forte.

Swatches however, are a bit more tedious as they take a bit more work trying to get the accurate colour to show up correctly. Need that natural sunlight to shine through. And when Mr. Sunshine is out (which hey, let’s be realistic, is all the time here in California) they all swatch so beautifully.
