Might As Well Face It, I’m Addicted to Dior

Published in: Makeup

I’m Addicted to Dior.

There, I said it.



And the eye look on the model above for the Addicted to Dior summer collection (coming April 21) is weakening my resolve. I love the seamless movement of her eyeshadows from pink to brown to gold, WORK!! The overall vibe, with the hair bear bangs and hot pink lips seems so Joan Collins circa Dynasty.

“The problem with beauty is that it’s like being born rich and getting poorer.” – Joan Collins

Addicted (above) might not have the refinement of spring’s Dior Lace (pic below), but I like it nevertheless.

With the coral, gold, brown and pink color palette for eyes, lips and face, perhaps Dior’s just trying to exercise their edgy side for summer?

Things I’m keeping an eye out for…

  • The Addicted to Dior lip duo palettes look totally bling-tacular. Each comes with two glosses — one shiny and one glitter — able to be worn separately or mixed together.
  • Also looking forward to the Nude Glow Complexion Enhancer, a shimmery liquid apricot highlighter (subtle sheen) to wear beneath foundation or on bare skin.
  • Yes, Virginia, even if you already own 101 other pink lipglosses, you just might covet Dior Addict Crystal Gloss. A hot pink (SCORE!), the exact shade supposedly changes based on the body’s chemistry, creating a unique, personalized shade. Now aren’t we special? :)

I’m looking forward to seeing more from this collection, ladies, but what do you think? I don’t have confirmed US prices yet, but being Dior I’m assuming it won’t set any records for affordability, LOL!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

P.S. How was the rest of your Monday? Mine sure went by in a flash. I just finished dinner (a healthy homemade-ish bean and cheese burrito), so now it’s time for a quick workout before I crack open the March issue of Real Simple. Have a wonderful night! :)

    Oh man, those quints look absolutely gorgeous! I’ve totally been wanting colors like that lately! (Ever since MAC’s Color Forecast, but I don’t want to depot…)

    Now I’d have thought this was a Spring collection as opposed to Summer but I like it! I’m hopelessly addicted to Dior :P The eyeshadow palettes remind me of the Parisian Lights palette though

  7. Aniela says:

    These palettes look beautiful and easy to wear too…love Dior!

  8. veronica says:

    Uggghh… I am right there with you. But it’s a very expensive habit, isn’t it?

    I’ve just started using the DiorSkin Forever foundation too… not bad! I’ve never worn foundation before, it’s a new experience for me.

  9. Vonvon says:

    OMG!!!! I so want both the eye palettes!!! Can’t wait for this collection to get here, though I am still very much in love with the Pearl Glow 059 palette from the Spring Dentelle collection!

    The eyeshadow colours look so glowy and pretty. I am also tempted to try the colour changing lipgloss. :)

    I’ve never fallen under the Dior spell but Ready to Glow might change that.

  12. Sheila says:

    You said it! I’m a HUGE fan of Dior. I spent like $1200 on their stuff just last year. I always buy something from each collection that comes out every year and I still go back, season after season. Its my all time fave and go-to brand for makeup and cosmetics =)

  13. Faye says:

    I don’t know if I’m daring enough for it, but it does look cool.

    And I *loved* that song in the late 80′s/early 90′s! I defy anyone to listen to it and not play rock out to it. Impossible :).

  14. Marley says:

    Ah, crap. I was able to pass up the last “lace” quints, as they looked similar to older quints…but I think I need both of those. I love it when Dior brings out warmer colors, because it seems like they do the cool taupes and silvers and purples so often.

  15. Saku says:

    That lipgloss has my name on it and so does that gold like eyeshadow.

  16. NINA says:

    Crush Glow and Ready to Glow are awesome palettes. Sigh — Dior or Nars … what to get what to get. Im confused again!

    • Karen says:

      Welcome to my world, girl! What items from Nars were you thinking about getting?

      • NINA says:

        Ive told myself I would get the 2 Anniversary Palettes (Wild at Heart and Everlasting Love). Ive wanted those 2 since forever but they arent cheap …. and I said I would finally get them this weekend.

        But now … im all confused again!!!

      • Karen says:

        I dunno… those NARS palettes are pretty hot. How about getting just one and then waiting for this release? If you don’t like these colors when they come out then you can pick up the other palette.

  17. gio says:

    That’s a pretty collection. I’m not a huge Dior fan but the lipgloss is tempting me.

    Um…strangely enough I really want the nail polish in the second promotional picture. Even though it isn’t part of the collection? Huh.

    God I LOVE Dior!

    Ooh, the Nude Glow Complexion Enhancer sounds right up my alley! :)

  23. Lisa S. says:

    Ohhh agony and misery, I really just cannot buy anything extracurricular right now. The colors in this collection are just perfect for me. Oh wait, these aren’t out till April 21, Ooooo a number of these luscious lovelies will be mine!

    Oh and true story, DH and I were discussing the other day if we should take out additonal homeowners insurance just to cover my makeup. I mean think about it, With Dior, Nars, MAC etc. I have a small fortune in makeup. It would cost A LOT to replace this stuff. We aren’t going to (the agent would probably laugh us out of the office) but we thought realllllly hard about it.

    I would love to try Dior’s Nude Glow. <3

    That gloss…. WANT. I love the way it looks in the promo pic and am a sucker for makeup that changes colour according to body chemistry. (Plus it would go well with the new makeup I just bought today… :) )

  26. Marce says:

    Lovely! Coral sure is a hit this season! I like the 2nd eye quint…a lot :D
