With all the exciting launches from Dior this year, I am just so happy and have been so looking forward to trying the new innovations and fun colors this year. I have review the amazing Dior Backstage launches here which I am using non-stop since then. In this post I am talking about the new launched Dior Backstage Airflash Radiance Mist and Diorskin Mineral Nude Bronze powder.

Dior Backstage Airflash Radiance Mist and Diorskin Mineral Nude Bronze powder

Dior Backstage Airflash Radiance Mist

Dior Backstage Airflash Radiance Mist is a long-lasting setting spray is inspired by Backstage makeup techniques. A genuine glow booster and skin perfector, the  Dior Backstage Airflash Radiance Mist gives radiance and vitality to the complexion immediately upon using.There are three ways to use this mist as mentioned below:

1- Prep: Dior Backstage Airflash Radiance Mist instantly fuses with the skin, leaving it fresh, soft, and ready for makeup.
2- Set: Long-wearing, it ensures makeup stays beautiful with a weightless effect for a  radiant finish that lasts.
3- Refresh: Light and convenient, Dior Backstage Airflash Radiance Mist can also be used for touch-ups throughout the day to restore radiance to tired, dull complexions

Dior Backstage Airflash Radiance Mist and Diorskin Mineral Nude Bronze powder

To apply Dior Backstage Airflash Radiance Mist, shake for five seconds before use. Then, hold almost 8 inches from face, close eyes and spray over the entire face in a Z pattern.

The formula uses a micro-diffusion technique to set makeup. Light-enhancing pigments help revive the complexion’s glow, while hyaluronic acid maintains hydration for skin that appears plumped with each use.

I was really skeptical first about how this spray will work but the more I have used it, the more comfortable I have become. The texture of the mist is very fine and smooth, it blends nicely into the skin without much effort. The finish is radiant and fresh. I like it the most as a primer rather than setting spray or for refreshing but it works fine in all the three ways mentioned above. It does not feels heavy on the skin and does elongate the makeup staying power.

The powder does not look cakey and blends beautifully into the skin giving a beautiful natural glow. It is such a nice addition to my bronzers, I can use it either to give warmth to my face or even as a blush. The staying power is good and makes the skin look luminous.

They are like a dream come true for a girl, to play with bright and beautiful colors this summer, and fun packaging you will love to show off. Let me come straight to the exciting new launches.

Dior Backstage Pros, Diorshow 2018

Dior Backstage Pros Airflash & New Backstage Buffing Brush

Dior Backstage Pros Airflash is the first spray foundation (CAD $78) by Dior and is inspired by backstage makeup techniques. It has an ultra-fine mist which gives the perfect air-brushed finish to the complexion. It has light diffusing pigments instantly smooth the skin for a radiant complexion. The ultra-fine and ultra-fluid texture offer buildable and custom coverage, The formula is water-resistant and stays true to color over time. The formula is comfortable to wear and stays on pretty well for over 10 hours.

Dior Backstage Pros, Diorshow 2018

To use Airflash, shake well for 5 seconds before use. Spray onto the Dior Backstage Pros Buffing  Brush. Then apply in small circular motions to the face, gently dabbing onto areas that require more coverage. Spray more onto the brush and apply as needed depending on how much coverage is required. The shade for my medium tan skin tone I am using is 501- Dark beige which I feel is a little dark for me but it going to be good for summer when I am more tan than usual. The formula is amazing, I like how smooth and comfortable it is. The wear time is great, the finish is semi-matte yet radiant, I mean it is not dewy but does gives beautiful radiance, looks very natural air-brushed on the skin. The coverage is medium and easily buildable to full. Another plus point is that it is water resistant, I am definitely going to put this to test on the beach days or poolside gatherings.

Dior Backstage Pros, Diorshow 2018

Inspired by the backstage makeup techniques, the Dior Backstage Buffing Brush (CAD $60) has reinvented foundation application with fibers of unparalleled density and quality for an even complexion and buildable coverage. A new shape for controlled application and a second-skin makeup result in a single sweep. It needs to be used in circular movements from the center of the face outwards.

Diorshow 2018 – Diorshow On Stage Liner

Diorshow On Stage Liner ( CAD $35) is the first Dior liquid eyeliner with an ultra-flexible felt tip to effortlessly recreate eye looks straight from the runway. Inspired by the Backstage, Diorshow On Stage Liner is the first liner with a hybrid tip that combines the ease of a felt-pen with the suppleness of a brush. Its fine tip allows for freer application, guiding the line to flawlessly recreate Dior runway looks in a single stroke. Diorshow On Stage Liner comes in an ultra-shiny vinyl black and 14 shades of intense, pure, saturated, matte or pearly color. The ultra-pigmented and waterproof formula is available in 3 intense effects – vinyl, matte and satiny – to dress the eyes in spectacular lines for extreme 24-hour* wear.

Dior Backstage Pros, Diorshow 2018

The felt-tip does help in a precise application and I am impressed with how intense the colors are. The formula dries quickly and there is no smudging during the day. The staying power is good, I had it intact at the end of the day. The colors are really fun and I am looking forward to matching them with my looks and outfits.

Diorshow 2018 – Diorshow Pump’N’Volume Mascara

Since the time I first used the Diorshow Pump’N’Volume Mascara, (CAD $37) I am in love with it. My full review of the mascara is here. Dior has taken it a step further and released the squeezable effect in 4 vibrant, ultra-pigmented shades to create colorful combinations and instant oversize volume. To use the mascara, give the flexible tube two or three squeezes to make the formula ideally fluid and generously load the brush with product. Apply in a zigzag to coat lashes from root to tip and achieve extreme volume instantly. The Diorshow Pump’N’Volume elastomer brush combines a rigid wand ensuring stable and precise application, and flexible spikes that are ever-so-gentle on lashes. The Diorshow Pump’N’Volume ultra-volumizing formula procures a unique, soft sensation thanks to a high concentration of waxes and elastic powders, the source of the seemingly expanded lash volume. The formula remains creamy down to the last drop, and the ultra-volumizing effect maintains its impact. The mascara is available in limited edition of 4 new neon shades: Purple Pump 160, Blue Pump 260, Coral Pump 640 and Pink Pump 840.

The mascara can be used as a single color or multiple colors to create some unique fun looks, like one color on bottom lashes and other on the upper. Or just a hint of pink or blue on the lashes gives a beautiful finish which is sophisticated yet fun. The new vibrant shades are pigmented and do give a beautiful volume along with the color.

Diorshow Pump’N’Volume Waterproof 

Diorshow Pump’N’Volume Waterproof ( CAD $37) is the same formula and effect in the waterproof version of the Diorshow Pump’N’Volume reviewed here. For all loyal wearers of waterproof makeup, Diorshow Pump’N’Volume Waterproof reconciles extreme volume with no-run wear. As with Diorshow Pump’N’Volume, women observe +100% more volume** on lashes for extreme volume results with spectacular staying power. The Diorshow Pump’N’Volume Waterproof elastomer brush combines a rigid wand ensuring stable and precise application, and flexible spikes that are ever-so-gentle on lashes. While the decrease in thickness between classic and waterproof mascara can be disappointing, Diorshow Pump’N’Volume Waterproof maintains intense volume with a higher dose of wax than classic Dior waterproof mascaras. The mascara is easy to wear and use, stays on well for a whole day, does not smudge.

Diorshow 2018 – Diorshow All-Day Brow Ink

Diorshow All-Day Brow Ink (CAD $34) is the first “tattoo effect” tinted brow ink by Dior for instantly full, lastingly shaped brows. ‘Eyebrows are no longer a detail. Perfectly defined, intense yet natural looking, brows are the indispensable finishing touch to high-impact eye makeup. To combine perfection with a natural, authentic, and long-lasting finish, Dior has invented a tattoo-effect eyebrow ink that dyes the skin beneath the brows.’

Dior Backstage Pros, Diorshow 2018

The formula is rich in high-intensity pigments that imperceptibly color the skin in a single sweep. The beveled applicator lets you precisely define brows and makes it easy to fill in bare spots. The ink formula is rich in waterproof polymers, ensuring a 36-hour impeccable finish that doesn’t move or fade, yet wipes off easily with makeup remover. It is available in three shades – light, medium, and dark, for every eyebrow color. I have been using it since last few days, the finish is very natural and the applicator is great in just having the amount of product that is not over, I mean just the amount you can either build up or just be satisfied with and not overdone. If you have seen me in my Insta stories where I usually share my work looks during weekdays, you might have noticed I prefer very natural brows and this has been a really nice addition. It does not look I am using anything but my brows are natural, more-defined, and beautiful.

Dior Backstage Pros Airflash, Dior Backstage Buffing Brush, Diorshow On Stage Liner, Diorshow Pump’N’Volume Mascara, Diorshow Pump’N’Volume Waterproof, and Diorshow All-Day Brow Ink are available from June 2018 at Dior Counters, BeautyBoutique by Shoppers Drug Mart, Sephora, Hudson’s Bay, Saks Fifth Avenue, Holt Renfrew, and Nordstrom.

Dior Hydra Life is a complete skincare collection created to hydrate the skin using gentle, effective, naturally derived ingredients. It is an innovative beauty line with natural-origin active ingredients, in tune with the times, as minimalist as it is effective. Dior Hydra Life has 83% natural ingredients and new floral active ingredients since it was launched last year in 2017. It has caused a stir since then in all skincare lovers, no matter the type of skin. The formulas are purified of parabens and contain even less silicone than the last year. The new launches have fresh sorbet textures causing a high pleasure experience. It contains prebiotic to resynchronize the skin flora and actively performs its role in maintaining the skin health. The Dior Hydra Life has a new hydrating Sorbet Program along with two irresistible cleansers which I am going to talk about.

Dior Hydra Life skin care

Dior Hydra Life new Sorbet Program covers all the daily skincare needs of women and men too. The common theme of all Dior Hydra Life range is the iconic ingredients of Hydra Life, Mallow, and Haberlea extracts, which boost water circulation within the skin and stimulate skin flora responsible for its natural defenses. The 3-step Sorbet Program is all about preparing the skin (Balancing Hydration with 2-in-1 Sorbet Water), rehydrating (Hydration Rescue with Intense Sorbet Cream), and awakening the look (Cooling Hydration with Sorbet Eye Gel). The two new formulas for cleansing, suitable for every skin type, are Micellar Milk – No-Rinse Cleanser and 3-in-1 Makeup Remover. As this post is about my skincare routine with Dior Hydra Life, I will start with the cleanser and then follow the steps until the last step in my routine to hydrate and moisturize my skin.

Dior Hydra Life Triple Impact Makeup Remover

Dior Hydra Life 3-in-1 Makeup Remover (CAD $42 – 125ml) is a triple impact makeup remover which cleanses, soothes, and beautify the skin. Dior Hydra Life 3-in-1 Makeup Remover is a bi-phase solution that removes heavier makeup even on sensitive areas of the face. It has three star ingredients: Lily extract that helps make the lashes appear more beautiful, day after day. A licorice-based ingredient soothes the eye contour and a cleansing complex eliminates all traces of makeup.

Dior Hydra Life skin care

I have been using it regularly to remove my makeup and it works really well to remove the makeup, even the long-wear makeup, heavy duty kind of makeup. Do make sure to shake it well before using as I did not shake it well few times and it does make a difference, I felt a little oily on the skin after using it. After shaking it well, I apply it with a cotton pad and remove the makeup. It did not irritate my eyes or my skin. My skin does not feel any tightness or dryness after using this, it feels clean and hydrated. It is not just good for eye makeup but I have used it to remove all whole face makeup with this, it works well. Then I move to my next step, either double cleansing with my cleanser or if I am in the mood of using Micellar Milk for not very heavy or permanent makeup for the whole face. Or I sometimes remove my eye makeup with the 3-in-1 makeup remover and then for my face, I use the Micellar Milk.

Dior Hydra Life Micellar Milk – No-Rinse Cleanser

Dior Hydra Life Micellar Milk – No-Rinse Cleanser (CAD $49 – 200ml) is the first micellar milk to combine the cleaning power of micelles and the nourishing richness of milk. As sensitive skin prefers milk to micellar water, while oily and combination skin love more aqueous products, Dior Hydra Life achieved the feat of combining the softness of a milk and the performance of a micellar water in one formula. Dior Hydra Life Micellar Milk – No-Rinse Cleanser has a luscious and fresh texture that transforms from milk into water upon contact with the skin. It has two star ingredients: Natural-origin micelles trap the most stubborn makeup particles and rice milk proteins help prevent nutritional deficiencies within the skin, and stimulate and rebalance skin flora affected by cleansing. It is suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive ones and is ideal for both face and eyes.

I use this Micellar Milk with a cotton pad, it is very creamy and smooth in texture. It removes the makeup pretty well, both from eyes and face. It is hydrating too, the skin does not feel right or irritated. My skin looks supple, fresh, nourished, and there is no greasy feeling.

Dior Hydra Life Balancing Hydration – 2 in 1 Sorbet Water

Dior Hydra Life 2-in-1 Sorbet Water (CAD $52 – 175ml) was developed in collaboration with the Dior Asian Innovation Center in Japan. Dior Hydra Life 2-in-1 Sorbet Water is fresh 2-in-1 beauty water that moisturizes and rebalances the skin. This product is designed to be used after cleansing the skin as the bare skin is both vulnerable and highly responsive. This crystalline lotion moisturizes the skin, strengthens its ecosystem and diminishes minor imperfections like dilated pores, shine, redness, and spots.

Dior Hydra Life skin care

Dior Hydra Life 2-in-1 Sorbet Water contains three star ingredients: Mineral powders which instantly minimize imperfections, the Fermented sugar which is a powerful prebiotic, stabilizes skin flora day after day, and Jasmine water which offers exceptional moisturizing power. I prefer applying this with cotton, but it works pretty well with hands too. I take few drops on my palms and then just press them into my skin. It did not make me break out or irritate my skin. My skin feels hydrated and soft, with regular use, I feel the texture of my skin is refined.

Dior Hydra Life Deep Hydration – Sorbet Water Essence

Dior Hydra Life Deep Hydration – Sorbet Water Essence (CAD $88 – 40ml) offers 3 actions in 1 single step: the ultra-concentrated moisturization of a serum, the radiance boost of a gentle peel and the toning effect of a lotion. It has a translucent blue liquid texture which offers a splash of freshness that instantly invigorates the skin. Deeply moisturized, the skin is smooth and clarified. The key ingredients include Mallow which deeply boosts aquaporin synthesis to invigorate water circulation, Haberlea leaf extract, as per Dior Science this is the first ingredient that is not only gentle on skin flora in its diversity but also, more importantly, stimulates the production of ingredients essential to its beauty. The natural fruit acids offer an extremely gentle peel for a delicate daily exfoliation of the skin. Dior Hydra Life Deep Hydration – Sorbet Water Essence is suitable for normal, oily, and combination skin types.

Dior Hydra Life skin care

I use it after the Sorbet Water and before the moisturizer or Intense Sorbet cream from the Hydra Life range. The serum applies nicely to the skin and sinks in quickly. I feel it works more than just giving hydration, my skin feels fresh, toned, and refined – making it look radiant and plump.

Dior Hydra Life Hydration Rescue – Intense Sorbet Cream

Dior Hydra Life Intense Sorbet Cream (CAD $82 – 50ml) is described as a multi-use rescue balm to comfort, nourish and strengthen the parched, uncomfortable epidermis with an incredibly lightweight butter texture. The can be perfect daily emergency skincare which acts on facial features like an intensive yoga session for the body, it soothes, softens, and strengthens. It has two star ingredients: Mallow butter which nourishes and strengthens skin barrier to keep water in cells maximizing its impermeability, and Chamomile extract which calms irritations. It also helps with skin redness, makes skin’s surface plump and smooth.

Dior Hydra Life skin care

It can be used in the daily skincare routine, and also as a night mask during periods of high sensitivity or when skin needs some extra care. It works great on dehydrated areas of the skin apart from the face, like hands, elbows, and knees. The texture of the cream is very smooth and creamy gel-like. It melts into the skin pretty well and makes the skin look fresh, plump, and smooth. Even for my combination skin, I do sometimes avoid too much moisture fearing breakouts and congestion but this is working pretty well.

Dior Hydra Life Cooling Hydration – Sorbet Eye Gel

Dior Hydra Life Sorbet Eye Gel (CAD $70 – 15ml) is described to deliver unique eye cube freshness to awaken the eye contour in the blink of an eye. This is just one in a kind of product I have used for a long time. The packaging and the product, they are both marvelous. The exclusive ceramic-applicator offers the effect of an ice cube to promote eye contour microcirculation The on-the-go format is very travel-friendly too. It is very much suitable to even the ultra-sensitive areas. It contains three star ingredients: Anti-inflammatory cornflower water instantly decongests the eyelids and puffiness, Micronized mineral powders illuminate and correct dark circles and Abyssinica oil is known to nourish, protect and strengthen the lashes and eyebrows.

I am seriously obsessed with the eye gel, it just melts into the skin and gives my tired eyes a really cool and fresh feel. The applicator and the product both work great together, my eyes feel relaxed and awake. I massage it into the eyelids, eyebrows, and temples, apart from working on the eye area, it relaxes and rejuvenates the area and the mind. I do notice the illumination it provides when applied and the area is moisturized and looks fresh and awake all day. I have been planning on keeping this eye gel in the fridge for the summer, it is cooling normally but would love some more cool fun in summer.

Overall, a nice range of products, very gentle yet effective. I am really enjoying using these products and would be great for all seasons. Hydration is the key, whether you have any type of skin, you need hydration and when the hydration comes with treatment like toning, refining, firming, and radiance, what else can you ask for more. Dior Hydra Life products are available at all Dior counters, Hudson’s Bay, BeautyBoutique by Shoppers Drug Mart, Nordstrom, Sephora, Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Neiman Marcus.

What do you think are your skin’s needs at this moment? Are you planning to pick anything from Dior Hydra Life? My must-haves are Dior Hydra Life Deep Hydration – Sorbet Water EssenceDior Hydra Life Hydration Rescue – Intense Sorbet Creamand Dior Hydra Life Sorbet Eye Gel. If you are looking for makeup removers, Dior Hydra Life Micellar Milk – No-Rinse Cleanser and the Triple Action makeup remover work really well.
