WARNING: High Voltage Dior Electric Tropics Swatches Follow

Published in: Makeup


From one of our first looks at Dior Electric back in March

Do you remember checking out the limited edition Nude Healthy Glow Powder in Sunset #002 ($46) from the Dior Electric collection with me earlier this year? The entire collection is out on counters now, and I did a little swatching on a recent excursion to the mall.

Sweet basket weave pattern on those bronzer pans. Yum, I like that a lot.

In other news, I just watched the first two episodes of How to Make It in America online. Not bad at all! Kinda like Entourage with a fashion industry slant.

    I’ll admit it. I’m totally baffled by the four nude glosses. With the exception of a FAINT spec of colour in “sweet peach,” I’m not sure I see the point in owning any of the four. I ADORE very sheer, nude glosses but I feel like releasing four of them is a bit.. redundant? Even as something to enhance another lipstick or stain I’m a little shocked. Otherwise, the rest looks fab!

  2. Whitney L. says:

    I agree with the gloss colors, having seen them in person– I DO, however, see the point in owning one of these, since I put one on my lips! The texture cannot be beat, they have NO stick and are surprisingly long wearing. Love them! FYI, there’s a pink nail polish in the collection as well, but it’s only available at Saks.

  3. Valeria says:

    I’m honestly not too into this collection, though the lipstick in Fire is very nice.

  4. Jessi says:

    For something named Electric I was expecting bolder colors. The only item that seems to embody that is the nail polish.

  5. Beatrice says:

    The collection is flawless, one shade more perfect than the one before. These are definately all winners :)

    The eye shadows look lovely.

  7. Molly SC says:

    I’m with Jessi- with a name like “high voltage” I’m seriously disappointed with the minimal pigment.
    I could buy lipglosses like those for 2 bucks, and I’ve got a close enough dupe for most of the rest. I was expecting VIOLENTLY neon BRIGHT bold BAM!!! colors… this is kind of lame, especially for Dior.

  8. Molly SC says:

    **scusi, I meant “electric tropics,” not “high voltage.

  9. gio says:

    The nail polish is pretty but I’m not digging anything esle. I would have expected something more bright and pigmented from a collection called Electric. Instead most of the shades are so sheer and boring.

  10. Ada says:

    The name would really make more sense if they had at least one pigmented item (other than the nail polish) to contrast all the sheer, pale, zzz shades. Like, pale pink, frosty white, ELECTRIC BLUE WHAM, nude gloss, etc.

    What a misnomer!!! What is so Electric about this collection?

    I like dior eyeshadow quints but these 2 look pretty unimpressive, IMO.

    Hey Karen! Can you think of a dupe for the brown color in the Rosy Nude? Thanks!

  13. Lea says:

    The Auora bronzing powder is so lovely! I swatches it in store yesterday and it is gorgeous.

    I am so psyched you mentioned How To Make It In America, I just marathoned the whole season the other day, it’s so good! Unfortunately the next season first comes out in Fall, but I’ll definitely tune in again.

  14. Glosslizard says:

    I’m lemming Rosy Nude, it looks gorgeous! Other than that, I think I can leave this collection, overall a little too nude and sheer! I completely agree with everyone else about the name vs. the collection!

    • Karen says:

      Sometimes I lik mind nude and/or sheer, as long as there’s other stuff to punctuate balance it out. I wish they had at least a few more brights! Maybe a few more punchy lipsticks?

    • Glosslizard says:

      Whoops, I wrote the wrong name! I actually want Rosy Tan ’cause it’s NOT as sheer! :P

  15. Nina says:

    im liking this one a lot! :)

  16. TrishaL says:

    Love this polish but it kills me that it chips so fast… not sure what I’m doing wrong. I love the colors and the application but they seem to hate me.

  17. Soo says:

    oooh! the pink in Rosy Nude looks pretty. except that’s really the only color I like :/

    Need that nail polish! Love it.
