I went to Bloomingdales' Dior Backstage Beauty Event at the beginning of the month, hoping to get a nice view of the new Dior Spring lineup and garner some ideas for my birthday look.
I had a crappy makeup artist who wanted to rush everything, so my experience was less than pleasant. I asked her to help me create a shimmery gold and dark green eye and what she gave me was less than stellar. She kept contradicting everything I asked for so after a while I just stopped and let her do what she wanted.
Products used: 5-Color Eyeshadow in Sunset Cafe, Dior Eyeliner Pencil in Precious Green, Diorshow Mascara
I'm not fond of this look at all, she didn't even do a good job of covering my dark circles!
Dior Eyeliner Pencil in Precious Green: Although I didn't like the artist's work, I loved this eyeliner that she used to smoke out my eyes. This dark green pencil is creamy and pretty easy to blend.
Dior Hydrating Concealer in Medium Beige: A good concealer is very hard to find and although this isn't the best, it's definitely one of the better. I love the creamy consistency and the hydrating formula is perfect for my dry skin. It's only drawbacks is the limited color range and that it takes some time to apply. A little bit does go a long way but you you need time to carefully blend. It's definitely not on-the-go product.
Dior Rouge Lipstick in Bronze Couture: I don't really have a lot of bronzish/brown lipstick or gloss and I actually liked the one that makeup artist applied on me so I decided to get it. Pure impulse buy :)
Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss Addict in Chiffon Beige
I remember trying a gloss from the line when it launched and I hated it because it was so shiny. I actually liked it this time around and it's my first Dior gloss!
I got this makeup box (that's totally useless because of the small square compartments inside), a cute little pouch and a tiny Diorshow mascara for free.
