Dior Summer 2012 Haul

[post updated]

Summer’s not quite here yet but summer makeup collections have been out for a while. I’m not usually a Dior girl but their summer collection is really well done. For a look at the entire collection (better pics too) check out Beauty-Boks. I will only talk about my purchases as you can easily find lots of well-written reviews and information on the other products.

1. Diorskin Nude Tan Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder – Sunlight (002)
2. Dior Addict gloss – Orange Pareo (542)
3. Diorshow Liner Waterproof – Turquoise (258) LE
4. Dior Addict lipstick – Jet Set (544)
5. Dior Vernis – Bikini (231) LEI’ve never bought hauled so much from one single collection before, and rarely at Dior. I lean more towards Chanel usually, unfortunately their summer collection failed to inspire me (apart from the bronzers … more on that later). (more…)

May Empties

dermophil Moisturizing Hand Care (75ml)
dermophil (as far as I know) is an old brand best known for their moisturising balm in a stick. It’s like a swivel stick lip balm only 10 times the size, called dermophil indien and you can only buy it at pharmacies because it’s marketed as a kind of medical treatment. The stick is excellent for extremely dry skin, cracks from cold weather and so on. The company has branched out and I’ve noticed quite a few of their products for hands and lips at the supermarket since beginning of the year. They are not sold under the name dermophil indien, just dermophil. I see it as more daily, ‘casual’ use. The hand care cream I tried was purchased from my local monoprix. (more…)
