Dior Lovin'.

Dior is hands-down my favorite luxury makeup brand. I'll admit that I haven't tried products from that many luxury makeup brands, but I don't think it's any coincidence that I love, and I mean LOVE, every, single Dior product I've purchased.

Dior Shimmer Star in Amber Diamond
Dior Matte Bronzer in Honey Matte
Dior Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Aurora
Dior Sculpt Lifting Smoothing Concealer in Beige
Dior Addict Lipstick in Singuliere

Amber Diamond is my all-time favorite highlighter. Enough said. You can read more about it and see a swatch here.

Honey Matte is my all-time favorite bronzer, and that's saying a lot because I love a lot of bronzers! You can read more about it and see a swatch here.

I raved about Aurora here and here, and I've been using it nearly everyday since getting it. I've been using bronzer pretty religiously lately, and on mornings when I can't force my butt out of bed on time and simply don't have seconds to spare to apply bronzer and blush, Aurora is my savior.

I love the Sculpt Lifting Smoothing Concealer formula for the under-eye area. It's creamy but not greasy, and it does a really nice job of concealing under-eye circles. You can read more about it here.

My most recent Dior purchase is Singuliere. It's a gorgeous, sheer, bright-medium-bubblegum pink, but what I love most about it is the formula. It feels exactly like a lip balm on the lips and since it also has sheerer (but not completely sheer) pigmentation, you don't need a mirror to apply it. It's probably the lowest maintenance lipstick I own. The only downside is that it doesn't last very long at all on the lips, but I'm personally not too bothered by it. I'll definitely include a swatch in a future post!

It was either positive blog reviews, glowing YouTube reviews, and/or recommendations from trusted blog friends that ultimately led me to take the plunge and buy each of these items (I usually don't shell out this kind of money on impulse items), and I could not be happier that I did. Despite each of them costing an arm and a leg (for all you mathmeticians out there, yes, I had 5 arms and 5 legs to spare!), I haven't been met with a Dior regret yet :)

Do you have a favorite luxury makeup brand? Any Dior favorites?

  1. Totally agree! Just about everything I have tried from Dior has been absolute LOVE. Their lipstick is the only lipstick I ever finished! My favorite ever. Aurora is amazing and all the eye shadows I have tried from them have the most amazing texture. The only non love item was Dior Show
    I even swear by Dior Skin care!!

  4. I am also now on the Dior bandwagon and am planning on purchasing the Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Fresh Powder Makeup, Diorskin Eclat Satin Foundation and possibly a few other lipsticks...Couture and Diorkiss are my new lust afters. LIke you said though these products cost an arm and a leg and I'm going to have to wait:)

  5. I don't own any dior products yet, but I'm planning on getting that dior concealer when I run out of the one I'm using at the moment. I need something that will really cover my dark circles! I have amber diamond and the dior addict lipstick on my wishlist, so maybe when I get some spare money, I'll hopefully get them :)

  6. You are a true Dior girl at heart! Everything looks so pretty! I wouldn't say I have a clear favorite luxury brand, I have a few bits and bobs from each...and to be honest, I don't find that I favor them any more then my mid level items ;)

  7. I love Chanel but Dior is rapidly catching up. I have amber diamond and it is the only highlighter I have been using lately! I actually went to get Aurora today (pretty much based on your reviews alone) but I waited like 15 minutes for someone to show up at the Dior counter and nothing! I went to the Chanel counter and bought bronze corail instead but Aurora will be mine someday :)

  11. One of my favorite blushes is Dior's Passionfruit blush. It's a blush and highlighter duo and is amazing :) Dior is my all time favorite luxury brand as well :) I have to try Amber Diamond!

  22. i really like Dior too! esp their lip products. Im loving Dior Addict gloss and Rouge Dior. My next Dior purchase would be Amber Diamond or Aurora and Nude foundation.

  23. I've never tried Dior makeup... well, I've tried their Blackout mascara and adore their Miss Dior Cherie perfume, but that's the extent of it.  Beautiful products, however.  I'm amazed at all the positive feedback.  I will definitely have to try a few things in the near future.

    Singuliere is my only Dior lip product but I definitely want to try more now. I'm IN LOVE with Dior cheek products, though!

    You're the second person now to mention their skincare! I HAVE to look into it!

  29. I actually have the most Dior items from a HE brand. I have 3 dior quints, diorshow, high shine lipstick (which was discontinued :( ), addict lipgloss (which i really love the color but it was limited edition of course -_-). You're really tempting me to try out their bronzers though. But I feel like when I see them at the counter they're always so shimmery o.o and i tend to stray away from shimmery face products >,< I really wanna try chanel products and I've recently tried armani foundation which i LOVE and i'm a huge fan of YSL lipsticks. It'd be nice to be rich and try all the HE makeup i want lol

  30. i totallyyy agree!! dior is awesome, although its the only designer luxury brand i own! i haven't purchased any chanel products but the MUA when i had my prom makeup done used a chanel quad (loved it!), but I ABSOLUTELY love dior! their products are always consistently on par. I know if i'm gonna buy something from them as long as I like the colour I don't have to worry about it. I always get so excited when i see a dior product in the picture thumbnails of your post even if its just your dior bronzer XD

    I had a Dior gloss that I loooved to bits, a nude shade (can't remember the name now) but I've never gotten anything else. I do want to try the Addict lipsticks though.

    Ah I've been on the verge of getting Dior Addict lipstick & what you said about it may have tipped me over the edge! It'd be so nice to be able to buy luxury make-up products without having to think about the cost!

    ReplyDelete
  33. :) i love your sense of humor! i have only tried a dior mascara,but i wasn't that impressed! Now i m afraid i need both Amber Diamond and the matte bronzer!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm so jealous! These all look beautiful, but I can't at all afford dior! ♥

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've never tried Dior or any other brand of that category to be honest. I'm still a student and being on a student budget I find it hard to justify such luxury buys.  My heart is aching for Amber Diamonds though :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love all the dior bronzers, I'm going to buy one! Gorgeous colours! x

  37. WillWorkForMakeupJune 3, 2011 at 5:46 PM

    My bronzer is from the matte bronzer range, so no shimmer at all! I love Chanel stuff too :)

  38. WillWorkForMakeupJune 3, 2011 at 5:46 PM

    Lol! Well, with any luck, I hope to have even more Dior thumbnails soon!

  39. WillWorkForMakeupJune 3, 2011 at 5:47 PM

    You should! There are sooo many shades of them now :)

  40. WillWorkForMakeupJune 3, 2011 at 5:48 PM

    You should get one! There's so many colors to choose from :) And yes, I wish I had tons of money so I wouldn't have to think about the cost...that'd be nice!

    Thank you :) I love Amber Diamond and the matte bronzer! Two of my favorite face products ever!

    Don't feel bad - I can't always afford it either :(

  45. I think the only thing I have from a luxury brand is Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure Laque, but I bought that online. I'd probably buy more if the prices here were on par with the US ones.

  46. O my gosh, that dior lipstick colour is gorgeous!! It's soooo nice, I totally didn't see that when Iwent, I'm definitely going to get it next time!! I love Dior products too :) I've never had any complaints about them too!
