I initially disregarded the very pink toned spring Cherie Bow collection from Dior. I of course made the mistake of swatching the collection thus making me decide that I did in fact need some of this sheer pink prettiness in my life.....
I picked up the lighter toned eye palette, Rose Ballerine
(£41). It contains a shimmery candy pink, frosty pale pink,
frosty/iridescent peachy pink, metallic/frost white, and a shimmery
The colours go on very sheer and although they have the
smooth, creamy feel I would expect from Dior, I think these have gone a step too far with the softness (apart from the
grey), so much in
fact that any type of blending seems to obliterate the pigment and
they need to be patted on. Furthermore, even with an eye
base I find by mid day I have significant fading.
In terms of the overall look, whilst this is prone to looking too
frosty it does give a brightening very feminine look which I can't
deny is quite pretty.
I selected one lipstick from the Cherie Bow display what I though
was the pink lipstick from the collection, unfortunately I later
found out that the counter only had Espiegle and had substituted
Candide and Charmante with shades from the regular line and had a
fourth shade which I had unwittingly picked up.
I think this is
misleading and I will have to check names of seasonal releases
beforehand if I go to this counter as I can't trust that they will
actually display the correct products. So the colour I have is
called Bow (£21). Its a cool very sheer baby pink,with a glowy/gloss
The colour gives me that overly cool milky frostbitten look,
its unflattering on me. It feels comfortable on and quite light
weight but the colour does not have any longevity.
There were a few other items I wanted from the spring collection but
I just feel a bit sour grapes about it now so don't think I'll
bother ...flounces off...
I bought these from Boots
