—- ∞ Lips Chapter ∞ —-

Brilliant À Lèvres Lip Gloss (#151, #183, #579)

 

I am addicted to these beautiful lip glosses! Besides, the lip liner is absolutely creamy and pigmented, it can be used as “lipstick” too!

+ Moisturizing and glossy

+ Very fine shimmer

+ Very natural finish

–  Need few layers to show some pigmentation

–  Not long-lasting that it wore off after a meal

–  started melting a little bit (in the palette) in hot humid weather

Diorskin Forever Compact SPF25 PA++ ( #020 Light Beige )

 

A nice touch but not the best, basically I don’t like it for hot weather. For your info, I always use this powder compact with the Dior brush.

+ Moisturizing and non-drying

+ Very fine shimmer that hardly to be noticed in close distance

+ Very fine powder to create flawless makeup

+ Natural alike soft-illuminating finish

+ Natural looking with multi layers

+ Buildable sheer to medium coverage

+ Rarely caked on skin

+ No breakout or irritation

–  No coverage for pores

–  Non-mattifying for combination skin in hot humid day

–  Need touch-up in afternoon to blot off the excessive shine

–  Oily T-zone shined within an hour although no greasy touch

 

 —- ∞ Skin Chapter 1 ∞ —-

Skin primed with Kanebo Cofffret D’or makeup base, so the “before” skin shined a lot due to the shimmering particles of the makeup base that reflected direct sun light.

before = with the makeup base  ;   after = with Diorskin Forever Compact after the makeup base

 

—- ∞ Skin Chapter 2 ∞ —-

Tested the Diorskin Forever Compact on right face only.

Left = skin after the moisturizer ; Right = skin applied Diorskin Forever Compact right after the moisturizer

 

After 6 hours spent in cozy room temperature in hot humid day (consider balanced skin condition), no touch-up or blotting, the sheer coverage of Diorskin was still there. You might notice the right side (With Diorskin) has more shine because the fine shimmers of Diorskin reflected the sun light better.

This palette looks great and the colours really suit you! I used to love Diorskin Forever compact powder, it is really nice and it does not oxidise on me unlike their whitening one.

Thanks lyn,
Guess Asian brand did a better job in whitening, both skin care and cosmetics. (“v)

very nice review thanks:)This was the shoots that I was searching to tell what I mean about this powder.The texture is awesome though, it doesnt cover pores.Gonna try it with clinique pore minimizer.Guess the result will be fine:)

Hi gulsen,
Thanks for your sweet comment.

Yes, the powder is finely milled like Chanel’s and it creates a nice semi-matte finish, although brushing the compact powder in the makeup palette can be a little bit messy. (“v)

HI,
MY FRIEND GIFTED ME A DIOR TRAVEL MAKEUP KIT, I AM NOT SURE ABOUT THE PRODUCTION AND EXPIRY DATE. THE BATCH NUMBER SAYS 7AO1. SO I AM NOT SURE WHAT THAT MEANS. CAN U PLEASE HELP ME OUT.

Hi Benazir,
Click here to decode the Batch number. When you go to the website, look up the Cosmetic Calculator at the top left corner, Select Brand Christian Dior and Enter code 7AO1, then click [Calculate]. Mine is 0X02 that printed at the bottom of the makeup kit.

The manufacturing date of batch#7AO1 is Jan 2007, which is more than 3 years old and I’m sorry to tell, it is an expired product according to global cosmetics guideline that make-up product like eyeshadow, pencil eyeliner and lip liner can last up to 3 years when the product remains unopened. You can read more from the website if you still consider to try it, the webpage is informative.
