Hey, cutie. Remember the Dior Electric Tropics collection you and I drooled over last week? Today I spent some time getting to know one of the limited edition Nude Healthy Glow Powders, Sunset #002 ($46), and now we’re officially attached.
Sunset’s a warm orangey brown with coral accents (like a blush version of MAC Soft Brown Eyeshadow), and I swear it’s just as gorgeous in person as it is in the promo pics. Here I’m wearing it on my cheeks as a blush, but I also tried (and liked) it as a bronzer and an all-over face powder.
Additional makeup worn in this look: Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow in Golds 569, MAC Eye Kohl in Powersurge, LORAC Front of the Line Pro Liner, NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener, Becca Ultimate Mascara and Benefit Brows A-Go-Go on eyes; MAC Lipglass in Lychee Luxe on lips
For me, the mostly matte finish is what makes this stand out in a crowd. It gives off just the faintest touch of shimmer and looks fresh and weightless on the skin.
Even though it’s a summer release, I could see myself wearing this all year round, even on blustery days as a bronzer to warm my pale skin (well, pale for me). Knowing I could reach for it often soothes the sting from the price…a little.
The Nude Healthy Glow Powder in Sunset and the rest of the eclectic Electric Tropics Collection hit Dior counters and stores nationwide this summer.
PRICE: $46 (ouch!)
AVAILABILITY: Coming soon to Dior counters and stores
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+ (an A if not for the price)
I know they’re out of season, but…
I’ve been craving tomatoes lately, so last night I made this quick tomato salad, which I served with pan fried salmon, steamed broccoli and brown rice, YUM!
Isn’t it pretty? It’s one of my favorite simple salads to eat with fish, chicken or fried tofu. And it’s a cinch to make. The tomatoes are mini-heirlooms from Trader Joe’s. All I did was chop them up, add a dash of sea salt and pepper, and mix. I thought about drizzling some olive oil on top… I bet that would have been even more delicious, but the salmon was already rich.
Enough about my unseasonable fruit cravings. St. Patrick’s Day is here!
Do you have any plans? El Hub and I might visit a local Irish bar tomorrow night, but Tabs can’t go because last year he partied too hard and got himself banned.
