Hi Lovelies! I'm back from France and back to posting my beauty favorites on the Coquette. I'm still trying to get over my jet lag. Ugh! It's the worst! I brought my laptop to France totally planning to blog, but once I was there among family in Paris and in the French Pyrenees, I just couldn't do it. It was nice to be away from technology and just enjoy my family. I also spent some time trying as much French chocolates and desserts as I could! ;) (See my Instagram for proof!) I hope to have my 2016 beauty and skincare favorites up on the blog soon.
Before I left for France, I placed an order on Dior.com for some beauty products. I mainly planned my order for the 5 Couleurs Splendor Limited Edition 2016 Holiday Eye Palette in 776 Precious Embroidery. I got sucked into the beauty vortex and decided to up my purchase game to be over $100 so I could get a minature J'adore perfume bottle. (Cute, right?) Needless to say, I got sucked into the whole Natalie Portman Dior Rouge marketing campaign. I was on my way to France, so I needed to have the French red lip. I actually called customer service and asked if I bought a lipstick and tried it on but didn't like it, could I exchange or return it? They said absolutely so I abandoned my fear and ordered the classic Rouge Dior Couture Color in 999. I have it in the satin version but there's also a matte version. I love the wild color range and the variety of satin and matte finishes.
When I received my tried on the lipstick, the red was so flattering to my skin tone I realized that I didn't need to wear this lipstick only for a special occasion. The color was just the perfect red and it brightened my whole complexion. I'm going to try to be more daring in 2017 to wear more than just my everyday nude shades in the day.
My final purchase in my Dior Beauty order was this Dior Addict Lip Glow Pomade ($33). I wore it non-stop in France as it gave my lips hydration but also a natural pinkish lip color and shine. I also have the Dior Addict Lip Glow balm and I love this pomade so much better because the shine is just gorgeous. It's a oil-gel formula enriched with shea butter.
The Dior Beauty shopping experience on Dior.com is stellar! Your products come boxed up so beautifully and you get to choose some beautiful beauty samples too. I didn't take a picture of it but they folded the tissue paper at the bottom of the box that looked like beautiful pleats. The whole process just felt luxe, more than Chanel.com. I loved their study signature white box. I also signed up for their email list and received a sample jar of the Dior Prestige Eye Cream as additional gift with my order. The whole experience was amazing!
