Haul | A Dior Addict(ion)…

by Jess on Tuesday, May 17th, 2011 · 31 comments

Hello! Today has been quite a bad day for me actually… everything so far has gone wrong. But luckily, I’m at home now! Made myself a few cups of tea, and tried to recover… I’m especially looking forward to a relaxing bath later tonight, because it’s the best thing to do in order to relax mind and body, as well as to regain energy.

But before I head to the bath, I would like to post up Part 2 of my haul post for you! So, I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Dior Addict Lipstick ~ 578 Diorkiss

 

I told you, I was in need of more Dior Addicts, didn’t I? Missed my first Dior Addict Lipstick post? See it here! So, this time I picked up 578 Diorkiss, which is the color that is featured by Kate Moss in the Dior Addict promotions.

Dior Addict Lipstick ~ 578 Diorkiss is a vibrant true pink, that is sheer and gentle enough to be a very wearable and elegant pink. I can imagine it looks beautiful on almost every skintone.

The color looks a lot more intense in the tube than on the lips, but the color payoff is pretty nice though. It finishes with a lovely shine without shimmers, which I prefer these days. Over are the days that shimmery and glittery lippies would release serious enthusiasm!

Want a vibrant hot pink that is yet not loud? You will be loving 578 Diorkiss!

Dior 5 Couleurs ~ 534 Rosy Nude (Summer 2011 Electric Tropics Collection)

534 Rosy Nude is the brighter palette out of the two of Dior’s Summer 2011 Collection. Isn’t it a truly beautiful palette? I don’t know how you feel, but I simply can not get enough palettes with soft neutrals and nudes.

In all the excitement for my new goodies, I forgot to take swatches (yes, again!). Will hand in later!

Dior Capture Totale One Essential Skin Boosting Super Serum

This is actually my second bottle already. This is the large bottle with 50 ml of product. So, obviously I love Dior One Essential! This serum totally fulfills what it claims to do! Thumbs up!

I’m using this serum at night before applying my moisturizer, which is currently the Kanebo Sensai Silk Soothing Cream. I can see a difference in my skin condition every morning when I used Dior One Essential. With this, my skin is much more radiant, plump and smooth.

I highly recommend the use of a good serum, if you noticed changes in your skin texture. For example, lack of firmness and radiance. Or simply if you feel that a moisturizer alone is not sufficient anymore.

 

| Product Information by Dior |

Push back the limits of anti-ageing effectiveness to enhance the Beauty of Women: this is now possible with One Essential.

More than a simple serum, it is the 1st Universal Skin Boosting Super Serum by Dior.
By eliminating toxins*, One Essential triggers exceptional regeneration* to reinforce the skin’s youthfulness.

All visible signs of ageing (wrinkles, loss of firmness, uneven skin tone) are intensively corrected. Applied before any other treatment, it boosts its performance, amplifying the targeted effectiveness of major anti-ageing active ingredients** for an exceptional youthful appearance.

One Essential, the first fundamental anti-ageing step by Dior:

- From the first application, skin regeneration begins: the skin is instantly brightened. It is visibly more beautiful.
- Day after day, the skin reveals newfound youth: it is firmer, radiant, intensely repaired

* In vitro testing of ingredients.
** In vitro testing of different anti-ageing ingredients with or without toxins.

Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion

This is an alcoho-free toner that contains salicylic acid. My skin breaks out occasionally, hence I like to use a toner with salicylic acid in my daily skincare regimen. It is quite an effective way to keep break-outs to the minimum.

The Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion has a gel consistency that doesn’t strip my sensitive skin. I have been using it since I got it last week. So far so good!

Okay, that’s it! A few days ago, I claimed via Twitter and Facebook that I have to go on a no-buy for the rest of the month! But… I failed today! Yes, once again! I’m such a loser when it comes to no-buys, haha…

I got the Caudalie Anti-Ageing Serum Eyes and Lips, because there was a 10% off promotion on all Caudalie products. I heard about this eye and lip serum from my beloved beauty youtuber and friend Fuzkittie. Another item I got is the Dr Hauschka Lip Balm. I have a weakness for lip balms in a pot, even though it’s not very sanitary, oh well…

Off to my desired bath!

That lipstick color is gorgeous! Seriously perfect. Ah, but I have way too many pink lipsticks already…. and the serum is very interesting! Have you used Genifique? If you have, is the Dior serum much better? Most of the skin products I use are Lancome, so I sometimes feel like I may be missing out on new products from time to time.

Jess May 17, 2011 at 02:01

Sorry, I haven’t tried out the Lancome Genifique serum yet. But I tried it at the counter some time ago. It has a somewhat similar consistency to Dior One Essential.

DiorKiss is so pretty eh? i looove the color oh man I am lemming that palette love it!! The dior one essential is my FAV serum at the moment it works so well. The clinique toner looks good does it dry out your skin at all?

Yes, Diorkiss is super pretty! <3

No, the Clinique Mild Clarifying Toner doesn't dry out my skin at all, even though my skin is sensitive and quite dry (except for the t-zone)!

Valeria May 17, 2011 at 02:07

Aw, all right. Maybe I’ll be able to go to my local Dior counter and try it out for myself once my Genifique runs out :) It’s a shame how the Lancome foundations are too dark for your skin :(

I’m so tempted to purchase another Dior Lippy, the one that I got called Tokyo looks neutral and light. I want something more bold and pretty. Can’t wait till you test out the new Dior eyeshadow palette love the neutral shades of it.

Kat May 17, 2011 at 03:20

I’m loving that Diorkiss! I almost bought that color but ended up with another color. I’ve been debating whether or not to go back today to pick up the Diorkiss but thought that if I blogged instead, it would take away my desire to go out and shop…then I read your post. I just may head out to get it yet, even though I’ve already hauled 5 different lippies to replace my one favorite. *sigh*

Oh that lipstick color is GORGEOUS – that’s the exact kind of pink I love. The Dior palette is gorgeous too. Dior has some of the most lovely palettes, just the way the colors are arranged and quilted embossing, it’s so lovely.

I love Diorkiss especially after seeing it on Kate Moss, I don’t know which I like best Dior addicts or Chanel Coco Shines… XD
Diorkiss looks great on you!

I just ordered Rosy Nude last night, and I can’t wait to get it, it’ll be my first Dior eyeshadow palette. Excited! :D

How are you? It’s been a while since I visited your blog. By the way, nice haul. The lippie looks really nice on your lips :)

When I need to relax, I drink a hot green tea and take a warm bath and it makes my day better :)

Yay, I picked up Dior Addict in 621 last Friday and love it so much.. I have a sample of Dior Serum and can’t wait to try it out:) Do you think Dior eyeshadow palette 534 is must have out of other Dior palettes?

Reply

Jess May 18, 2011 at 13:38

Yay for your Dior Addict! I think 534 Rosy Nude is quite a must-have out of all Dior palettes, if you are like me who love nude shades like these. But you can also go for 609 Earth Reflection from the permanent collection, which is a similar neutral palette. Hope that helped! ;)

What a thoroughly fantastic haul! I was oggling the Dior palettes today but lo and behold….I RESISTED!

The Dior lippy looks gorgeous on your lips. I have one too and I need to swatch it.

The Caudalie serum is FAB! I use that too and it is really starting to make a difference. I dont think you need it to be honest…your eye look perfecto.

I use the NUDE advances cellular renewal serum and it is magic. I absolutely love the stuff. Have you tried it?

Reply

Jess May 18, 2011 at 13:40

Believe me, my eyes are so not perfecto!! You should see me without makeup, especially in the morning or after a long day, haha… super puffy and droopy!

No, I have never heard of the NUDE advances cellular renewal serum.

Reply

Vonvon May 18, 2011 at 12:07

Hmmm… I think I should get myself some Dior lippy too. The one you have on your lips is such a pretty shade. But hopefully, I could catch a Dior sale when I go back to Malaysia in Summer and grab some at some bargains.

And a big YES to the One Essential serum. I should consider getting another bottle of this. This seriously works! Surely needs some detox for my skin.
