DiorShow Black Out Mascaraicon ($24.00) is not quite “coveted” by Temptalia, but it is the improved version of the famous DiorShow mascara.  I will say that both DiorShow and DiorShow Black Out do give you longer, thicker looking lashes and both are pretty dark black.  The only reason these aren’t coveted by me is because they flaked and smudged on me personally!

Shimmer Star Pressed Powdericon ($42.00) is my favorite highlighter of all time.  I really can’t recommend this product enough!  It gives such a subtle sheen to cheeks that’s so natural and beautifully glowy.  It is available in both Amber and Rose (and it was available in Copper, but that was a limited edition shade!).  I’m getting Rose the next time I’m at Nordstrom (which hopefully will have it!).

5-Colour Eyeshadow Quintsicon ($54.00) are a signature Dior product.  They have several permanent varieties available, as well as several limited edition quints that come out as part of their seasonal launches.  I have tried and played with several, and I’m always impressed with how smooth and luxe the shadows feel.  I’ve only encountered one quint that just didn’t work well on its own (Earth Tones)–otherwise I adore them.  I particularly love the Twilight Quint for holiday.

Addict Eau de Parfum ($68.00) is my go-to perfume for something sultry and sexy.  It’s a heady scent with a lot of spicy vanilla and sandalwood in it.  I’m terrible at describing scents, I swear; but this is worth spritzing the next time you’re in the fragrance department.

    I love Dior Addict Shine fragrance, and dior addict lip gloss in 317. Havent tried any blush or eyeshadows yet. They are next on my list!

    By far, Dior lip products!

    I travel out of the States often (and currently reside in Canada) so I’m frequently passing through the duty free and snagging some great deals.

    I currently have about 12 (or so) Dior Lipglosses and 5 of the Ultrashine lipsticks.

    The Ultra Gloss Reflects are gorgeous in almost all shades. I really suggest them because of their brush applicators, but unfortunately the range of shades doesn’t match the Addict lipgloss line. I have some really incredibly unique colors from that, including icey-purple with rainbow glitter.

    I also really love the new High shines. They’re like tinted lipbalm to me.

    Also, its funny how they say the Sparkle Shine for this Holiday line is limited edition. o_O I bought it over 4 years ago at Macy’s! It was limited Edition, then, too!

    As much I dislike Dior make up (lipstick and lipgloss sting my lips so much / the foundations smell too hard) I love their perfumes. For years I’m wearing Dior Addict. My big darling. The perfect Vanilla smell, comforting but not too childish, very fatal. On summer, I wear Dior’s “Escale
