Dior Splendor Holiday Collection - Dior Vernis

These little gems are a punch of colour wrapped up in a perfect package. The Dior Vernis are part of the Dior Splendor Holiday collection and are the key to a gorgeous holiday manicure.
Left-Right: 001 Nova, 850 Splendor
850 Splendor is a berry red which is shiny and opaque in 2 coats. The Dior vernis are long wearing polishes that wear perfectly on my nails for a full week.

001 Nova is a clear based multi-colour shimmer polish which can be worn alone with 3 coats or used to top another polish with 1 coat.

I love the combination of Splendor topped with Nova to create a manicure so glam, Mrs. Claus will be asking you for makeup tips for Christmas.

Dior Splendor Holiday Collection - Diorific Matte Lipstick Review

Dior Christmas collections are what makeup dreams are made of. I remember when the first Dior counter came to St. John's and I would sit and drool over the Christmas collections. From the packaging to the gorgeous colour selections, Dior Christmas collections do not disappoint.

One piece that always sticks out to me is the lipsticks. The gold bauble lipsticks are so pretty, I'd like to decorate my tree with them. This year Dior has released 4 colours in the Diorific Matte lipstick - I have 880 Fascination and 065 Golden.

880 Fascination is a deep purple berry shade that dries down to a powder satin finish. It feels so comfortable, I often forget I'm actually wearing it.

065 Golden is a golden shimmer shade which has been popular this year. It also feels comfortable on but I personally do not like wearing this type of shade on it's own. I like using this shade as a topper for Fascination to highlight the middle of my lips.

Dior Skyline Fall 2016 Collection - Dior Flash Luminizer Radiance Booster Pen

Glowing skin is the biggest trend of the season and this is easily achieved with natural and easy to use products like the Dior Flash Luminizer Radiance Booster Pens. The weightless pigments of the pens fuse with the skin to create a radiant all over glow. These pens come in 5 shades which bring instant light to dark areas of the face.

Left-Right: 005 Pearly Vanilla, 003 Apricot, 002 Ivory
I've been using the shade 002 Ivory under my eyes as a radiant concealer and highlight. I find it covers dark circles while illuminating - there's nothing better than a multi-taking product!
Then I've been using 005 Pearly Vanilla to highlight my cheekbones, nose, my brows and inner corners of my eyes.

I love the fresh faced feeling I get while using these products. They make my skin look brightened and radiant while being easy and convenient to use.

Dior Skyline Fall 2016 Collection - Diorblush Light & Contour Sculpting Stick Duo Shadow and Light

The Diorblush Light & Contour is a sculpting stick duo which helps redefine lines and adds volume. These limited edition dual ended cream sticks offer contrasting finishes with a matte contour end and a strobe worthy shimmer end. 
Top-Bottom: 003 Highlight, 003 Contour, 001 Highlight, 001 Contour

I've been using the contour shade in 001 which is a cool toned brown to contour my cheekbones and the shimmer end to highlight under my brows. Then I use the warm brown shade in 003 to give warmth to my complexion on the top on my forehead and around my jawline. I'll then use the warm champagne shade to highlight the tops of my eyebrows and around my chin.

I love the soft and natural look these sticks create. They are easily blend-able and one of my new handbag staples.

Dior Skyline Fall 2016 Colleciton - Dior Nude Air Luminizer Shimmering Scultping Powder

Highlighting has taken the world by storm! Everywhere you turn a company is releasing the latest product to make you glow to the heavens. I haven't totally jumped on the highlight bandwagon because having oily skin can give enough glow naturally but when something like this Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer comes along, I run speeding after the highlighter wagon.

First off, the packaging is stunning. It's heavy duty quilted embossment is gorgeous to have in any makeup collection.

On the inside is a beautiful universally flattering champagne highlight which will catch and reflect light for a luminous complexion.
