Dior Transatlantique Summer 2014: Sundeck Eyeshadow Palette & Cruise Addict Lipstick
Though the overtly warm Sundeck quint (£41) was something I had completely dismissed from photos online, once I was at the counter and swatched the bronze and peach shades I decided that it would have to come home with me even though I knew the orange wouldn't work (which is doesn't).
The limited edition palette contains a matte yellow toned beige, shimmery peach/gold, metallic golden bronze, satin dark red toned brown and in the centre a bright satin finish burnished orange.
Overall pigment is good apart from the beige which is somewhat lacking and I can barely notice it on my skin, so it does nothing to cancel out lid discolouration. The dark brown and beige have a dryer more powdery texture whereas the other shades are more soft and creamy. The wear is good and though a primer is best used I can get away without one.
Though you can get a few different looks with this, this palette isn't the most flattering on me and can verge on making me look unwell, great overall colours just not on me.
Now lets move onto the lovely Dior Addict Lipstick in Cruise (£24). Its a juicy mandarin/coral shade, that looks intense in the tube but can be applied as a sheer wash or built up to give impact.
It has a glossy finish and a gel like texture that feels quite lightweight, comfortable and non drying. Its a really great shade that instantly brightens the face.
I bought these from Boots.
