The Best Dior Products

The Best of the Best:  Dior

Dior excels at creating (even when you thought you had it covered) staples that you’ll use time and time again. Many of my favorite products to use on a daily basis are dior. Dior can be colorful and bright, but they’re more often subtle and natural–not boring, mind you.

  • Dior Diorskin Shimmer Stars ($43.00) are quite possibly my favorite product by Dior, period. These are subtle highlighters that work well on all skin tones and give that “glowy” appearance without overloading the skin with shimmer. They’re natural and bring out the skin’s own glow. Really, really phenomenal. You can just see how many looks I’ve done with Amber Diamond and Rose Diamond alone.
  • Dior Addict 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray ($72.00) was one of my first fragrances, and it is still one of my more coveted scents. It is a heady scent that works extremely well for evening and formal occasions.
  • Dior Diorskin Nude ($45.00) is a water-based, lightweight light-to-medium coverage foundation that gives skin a flawless and healthy look. You can read my full review for even more reasons why it rocks my world.
  • Dior ‘One Color Extreme’ Eyeshadow ($27.50) are highly pigmented single doses of eyeshadow. Dior is actually coming out with several new shades this fall/winter, so look for them! For now, you can check out the two that came out with the fall collection.
  • Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss Reflect ($25.50) are non-sticky, hydrating lipglosses with a beautiful glossy finish. They come in a variety of shades, and they’re one of Dior’s signature products.
  • Dior 2-Colour Eyeshadow ($35.00) are richly pigmented eyeshadow duos. They’re not quite at the level of the Extreme eyeshadows, but they’re coordinated shades that are worth the investment if it’s in your budget.
  • Dior Bronze Harmony Blush ($42.00) is on the level of Skin Shimmers. Soft, subtle color that looks natural and truly enhances the skin in a way that’s beautiful. Check out my review for Rose Brazilia and Coral Riviera.

    I always pass the counter and say, “next time….” I think it’s the price shock that always gets me…same goes for Chanel but maybe this Fall I’ll breakdown and buy the Night Butterfly palette – if it hasn’t sold out already!!! Their shadows are lovely and buttery.

    I remember being in the 7th grade and submerging myself in my aunt’s Poison bottle. HA – I thought I was slick sneaking into her bottle but it’s so potent you could smell me miles away!!! I remember my first favorite red lipstick was DIOR Red (I think that’s what is was called) it was a lovely blue red that I wore daily especially in my goth days. I loved that classic blue hexagon lipstick case – I miss that. I did go through a period of Dior lipsticks – maybe I should just see if it makes my lips freak out now. I might be pleasantly surprised!

  4. I love Dior so much I made a video of my collection! I think I spent about $1000 in the past year on my Dior cosmetics collection. It might not look like that much compared to you, Christine, but I’ve never been that obsessed with makeup until just recently. My favourite products are the 5-colour eyeshadows, both in regular and iridescent, as well as Dior Addict 2 EDT and Diorskin Nude.

    I really need to check out Dior. So gorgeous. Same goes for Chanel. I guess I should venture away from MAC a little bit LOL!
    BTW, did you get your shipment from Rock and Republic from the Hautelook sale? Still awaiting mine and can’t wait to check them out. I see they are on sale again at Hautelook today!

    You have definitely enticed me to check out Dior’s Shimmer Star the next time I go to the Dior counter! Normally I like liquid highlighters better then powder, but this looks too gorgeous to not at least for me to take a peek.

    Yeah I’m going to have to say that Diorshow mascara and the quints deserve a place in my top ten. Those are the things I generally see the most buzz about. That and being the MAC devotee that I am, the fact that I have an uber special place in my heart for the Incognito quint says a lot.

    Been wanting to get the skin shimmer since I saw your tutorial, but haven’t gotten around to it yet since it is quite a splurge. I’ve been having troubles with Vanilla pigment lately and it looking too sparkly so I’m hoping this will be a nice alternative.

    I thought it was cute! :)

    Can’t live without my two Dior shimmer powders <3

  11. I LOVE Dior’s Addict High Shines and Addict lipcolors! Sadly most of the high shines are too sheer to show up on my lips but the formula is just TDF. I have Gipsy Red and Addict Gallant Bronze and they’re def among my favorite lipsticks. The case is just so lux looking. Makes me happy just looking at them lol.

  12. I cant live without concealer,foundation and gloss. Now Im using the Lip Polish smoothing lacquer. I dont leave home without hehe.:D

    I have a huge love for the 5 color palettes. My personal favorite is the Tropical Light palette. Having blue eyes, the greens and browns are fabulous to make my eyes really pop. I finish it off with 2 coats of Dior Iconic mascera. its always a hit!
