Dior Lip Sugar Scrub is described as an exfoliating and nourishing stick with grains of sugar that melt away, for incredibly soft and naturally rosy lips. I have dry or I should say dehydrated lips that flake frequently. I love lip products that are hydrating for my lips and do not cause flaking, whether it is a lipstick, lip gloss, lip tint. I have used few lip scrubs before like the ones from Sara Happ and Fresh which both I still like. I have the Dior Addict Lip Glow that I bought a few months back and use it consistently for hydrating my lips with an extra benefit of nice tint. I purchased a backup of it a few weeks back and then I got this lip scrub along with lip tattoos to try and review. I am a fan of Dior Products and let me tell you, this is a new favorite lip scrub. I have used it few times before writing this review and I am happy with the results. This does give a natural rosy tint to the lips and makes my lips more comfortable without drying. Whether it is your face or your lips or even a painting(speaking from my artist side, yes I love painting), you need a perfect base to start with, and for lips, this is indeed one of the best I have tried.
This lip scrub can be applied alone or as a first step before applying the lipstick. I apply this lip scrub generously from the stick and rub the grainy texture between my lips to rehydrate and nourish the dry skin of my lips. It has a very sweet addictive scent which does have the qualities and benefits of both a lip balm and a lip scrub. I like the natural rosy color it gives to my lips. The packaging of this lip scrub is almost the same as the Dior Addict Lip Glow which is very beautiful, the product is housed in a silver tube and the plastic cover is light pink and closes with a click sound. I like the luxurious feel and look of this lip scrub. It retails for CAD $41 excluding taxes.
Dior Addict Lip Tattoo is the first long wear lip tint by Dior which is described to have a comfortable formula which is weightless and does not transfer. The color of this lip tattoo fuses to the lips like a tattoo once you apply it on the lips. The packaging of this lip tatoo is very cute and the product side of the packaging is the same color as the product inside and the applicator side is of silver color. The foam applicator included in this product is really nice and comfortable to use.
I was sent the shades Natural Pink – 881 and Natural Berry – 771 and have been using them almost daily since last week. So here are my bits on it. I applied them straight with the foam applicator and it is easy to apply. It looks shiny when it is wet and then it just fuses with the lips, I mean you are not able to tell if you applied anything to your lips or it is your natural lip color. For me, both Natural Berry and Natural Pink worked well. With Natural Pink, it gave me a pretty pink tint, as I mentioned no one could say I applied something on the lips, just beautiful rosy pink lips. I am a fan of Berry shades and I believe they suit my medium tan skin tone much better, so this Natural Berry looked great on me, the tint looked natural and fused well with my lips.
With trying and testing, I am now more into the makeup that enhances my features and does not make me something else. These both tints are nice and the staying power is really good for around 5-6 hours on me and I do eat and drink regularly with them on. And one more thing, they do taste sweet, yes I did taste them. And I think otherwise the staying power is really well. These lip tattoos retail for CAD $36 excluding taxes. These lip tattoos are created in a total of six shades by Peter Phillips which range from beige to raspberry, to flatter and enhance any lip color.
The Dior Addict Sugar Scrub and Dior Lip Tattoo are available at all Dior Retailers and related .com sites.

Dior reinvented volume with Dior Diorshow Pump ‘N’ Volume Mascara this year and this is the Mascara you need for that extra volume you desire. This Mascara has a squeezable wand means a fully loaded brush for an instant extreme volume for the lashes. The technique here is to pump the soft tube, which will coat the brush and soften the creamy, rich formula inside for a perfect fresh application every time. Doesn’t that sound amazing and interesting too? This is the advancement and innovation we have in today’s world, I am so impressed with this one. I was born and raised in India and I remember my mother and grand mother used to have home made eye kohl which had some really good benefits for eyes and she made it fresh after an interval of time.
This Mascara has a special bounce effect brush which is sturdy and the bristles are supple enough to bounce and load the lashes in a single sweep, no clumps just volume. The creamy, dense, volumizing formula of this Mascara is due to the main ingredient which is exclusive to Dior and is called elastic Bouncy Powders which does last for a good amount of time whether you just opened a new tube or just finishing one.
“The idea was to make the impossible, possible—to create very thick lashes without clumping, as I can do backstage. By pumping, you soften the formula and get a creamy volumizing effect that creates really rich lashes.” as described by Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup.
For me, I have a nice length of eye lashes and most of the time, I do not apply Mascara and if I do, I need a very gentle single stroke so that my eyes do not look very different from my face. Being a woman doing my full-time job in a conservative office area, I do prefer a natural look with my formal clothing. Whether it is my makeup or any other thing, I try to keep things simple. First of all, I loved the concept of squeezable Mascara and looking at the brush, I could see how little and dense the bristles are and they are going to give some nice volume. I have been applying it for a few days now in very light single stroke and it gives me such a natural volume, like my lashes are that thick or I would say ‘My lashes but better’. It enhances the beauty of my lashes and not makes them look different.
This Mascara retails for CAD $37 excluding taxes and is available at all Dior Retailers and related .com sites.

The Dior Glowing Nude Diorskin Nude Air Illuminating Powder which was a limited edition highlighter is one of my favorite highlighter’s which I love and use a lot. For 2017 spring Dior released luminizers in four shades which are permanent and I could not be more thrilled. The Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer is described as “light as a breeze” and contains a high concentration of illuminating pigments in a shade that can be adapted to any skin tone. Isn’t that cool? It melts into the skin perfectly and gives a glow that is very luminous natural glow. There are four shades and each shade will look different on you depending on skin tone, I was sent shade 004 – Bronzed Glow for review. Also, just to mention here that each shade looks different in the pan depending on how the light falls and reflects on the compact. It adds a nice kind of glow to the skin without being overly shimmery.
The shade 004 is also really gorgeous and I am so excited to have this shade. Highlighters are an important part of my life and when they are this beautiful and look so stunning, it makes the day better! This highlighter is really beautiful, whether it is the packaging or the product inside, it is so perfect. It has an embossed surface which I was afraid to touch first ( the feeling you used to get in the childhood when you yourself does not want to play with your favorite toy fearing it may get dirty or it will stop working 🙂 ).
I tried taking the photos and swatches of this highlighter both in direct sunlight and in the shade so that you can see how much difference the light makes.
The packaging of this highlighter is fairly sturdy, the same silver compact as the Dior Glowing Nude Diorskin Nude Air Illuminating Powder and it comes with a protective soft pouch and mini kabuki style brush for application. The brushes are well made and usable and are perfect for on the go.
Overall, I am in love with this highlighter and I am so much looking forward to going to beach or an outing to wear this highlighter. The shimmer and finish of this highlighter are very beautiful and they can also be used on the cheeks, eyes or even eyes wherever you want that beautiful focus and light. I did not experience any irritation or making my skin look dry or the emphasize the pore size. It looked very natural and truly melted into the skin perfectly. 004 is a unique color and looks like such a soft dewy bronzy glow on my medium tan skin tone. Dior Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer retails for CAD $68 excluding taxes and is available at all Dior retailers and websites.
If you have medium to tan skin tone, I would say 004 is must for you.
