Quick Demo Using Dior 5 Couleur 876 Trafalgar: Red Eyeshadow Tutorial

Red on the eyes seems to be very “in” for Fall, judging from the fact that 2 of the biggest designer houses, Chanel and Dior, feature red shadows this season.

The trick to wearing the look without everything going too Goth is to pair it with softer (pink, gold, pearl) or more neutral shades (brown, burgundy, grey). If you want it to look goth, you can pair it with nothing but black. Chanel’s look for the season is slightly punk, pairing strong red with bright yellow.

I went for a softer, more wearable option since many people were asking about how they could make a palette like Trafalgar wearable. It’s actually not that dramatic if you don’t wear the red on its own!

P.S. the liquid liner I used here was MAC’s Penultimate Liner in Black.

Quick Look at Dior’s 10 New 5 Couleur Palettes in Singapore (and the limited edition Fall 2014 876 Trafalgar palette)

I’ve heard from some readers that the palettes available in each country differ, so these may not be exactly the same as what you can find in your country, but if you just want to look at some of the new shades being rolled out, here are some!

(The older collection is slowly being phased out, so if you have any staples you might want to get some backups before they’re gone.)

Out of the 11 palettes, I picked out 4 faves to purchase for obvious reasons… (I’d rather buy a new bag than 11 new Dior palettes at one shot…)

These 4 I’ve swatched above. 

The pigmentation and formulas are the same as they were before; I can’t really detect any difference. But the packaging HAS changed. To see the difference between the older palettes and the newer ones (plus the new applicators etc), just go to my post on Dayre!

On weekdays my skin looks tired and dry and my makeup patchy/creased by end of day (I work in an air-conditioned office), so I’m happy #Guerlain’s launched a series of Super Aqua age-defying products centered around one of their top-selling serums. 
Enjoying the light-feeling Super Aqua-Créme Day Gel and Super Aqua-Serum BB+ Hydra Balm today. The day gel might actually replace my #Chanel Le Blanc Creme Fine as my daily cream! We’ll see.

Dior Addict Eau De Toilette Review

Dior’s launching a brand new Dior Addict perfume for Summer. This time, it comes in an updated glass flacon with a removable cap (no more leaking in bags), and it’s a soft fresh white floral along the veins of J’adore, Miss Dior Cherie Blooming Bouquet and Marc Jacobs Honey.

If you’re expecting a lighter version of the original Addict, don’t. If you’re familiar with Dior’s approach to the Poison range, the Addict range is similar. They are mostly completely different from each other. The biggest commonality is the bottle design.

I’ve seen reviews complaining about the fact that it smells nothing like the original Addict. Get with the programme ladies, lol. They are not twins or cousins. They are like a group of unrelated models wearing similar themed couture outfits at a runway show.

  • Top notes: Sicilian Mandarin
  • Heart notes: Sambac Jasmine, Tunisian Orange Blossom
  • Base notes: Vanilla, sandalwood

The notes jasmine, orange blossom, sandalwood and vanilla are actually similar to the original Addict. But Addict contains other different notes, and the Night Queen Flower, Bulgarian Rose and Bourbon Vanilla are much more dominant than the other notes, so it will smell like a completely different scent. Dior Addict is as dark, heady and sexy. Addict Eau De Toilette is bright, sweet and soft. 

The “sillage” and throw (how far the scent projects and trails) is soft to moderate depending on temperature. This is not a loud scent and it’s nice for the office, for cuddling, etc. You will not gas anyone. And lasting power isn’t fantastic, which is typical of fresh white florals in the EDT concentration. I get about 3-4 or so hours before I stop noticing it.

The 100ml bottle I have here is specially-engraved at the ION Dior Backstage boutique in Singapore, where a professional engraver was present the past Saturday and will be there again next Saturday (31 May).

We took inspiration from the campaign visual; a woman in a floral dress. Except the engraver took a photo of my face to try and engrave it in my likeness. LOL, I still think it turned out more like Natalie Portman in the Blooming Bouquet ads but I’m not complaining; it’s gorgeous!
