I recently attended an event for Dior at Shoppers Drug Mart (the one located at Kensington Square Plaza, 6508 East Hastings Street, Burnaby) to learn about Dior skincare and beauty. Being a makeup and beauty addict, I was really excited to learn more about Dior and to experience their skincare and beauty products.
The event kicked off with a super relaxing in-store facial using all Dior skincare products. If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen my Dior facial experience step by step in my Instagram stories but if you don’t follow me (hop over there now to hit follow!) then let me just tell you this: it was amazing. My skin will often go through periods of being dry and dull, which is exactly what my skin was like going into Shoppers that day, but following the Dior facial – my skin seriously glowed.
The Shoppers Drug Mart skincare expert, Sylvia, targetted my skin issues using a number of highly hydrating products from the line, like the Dior One Essential Skin Boosting Serum which is packed with antioxidants to give more hydrated, healthy, and radiant looking skin. Another product she used was the Dior LIFE Extra Plump and Smooth Mask which was truly amazing. This was the product that seemed to really bring my skin back to life and give it some serious hydration.
Following the facial with Sylvia, I then got to experience Dior makeup. Now, I have tried some Dior products in the past, but I’ve never done a full-face using Dior makeup – and I’ve specifically never tried their foundations, so again this was something I was really excited to get to try. Zora, a Dior makeup artist, created my makeup look. She really focused on natural looking beauty with very light foundation on the skin, a soft glow, a bronzy warm eye, and then a pop of pink on the lips. I absolutely loved the full look, and since then the Dior foundation has been one of my go-to’s.
The full team (shout out to Suzanne, Liza, Sylvia, Ashley, Nicole, Tina, and Michelle!) at Shoppers Drug Mart is amazing. If you’re needing help with your beauty or skincare routine, I highly recommend you stop by and chat with one of them. They’ll help get your skincare and beauty routine back on track!
Now let’s look at some new Dior Products I am obsessing over:
Dior Forever Undercover 24H Full Coverage Foundation
If you watched my recent Summer Favourites video on Youtube, then you likely already know that I love the Dior Forever Undercover 24H Full Coverage Foundation. While it’s marketed as being a medium/full coverage, I have found you can easily sheer the coverage out to being lighter – which is what I’m all about. This foundation offers buildable coverage without looking cakey, streaky, or unnatural.
It softy blurs any redness or imperfections and appears very skin-like. I also really like how this foundation sets in place. Rather than drying down super quickly (which is often an indication a foundation will be long-wearing) this foundation gives you bit of time to play and work with it to get it blended out. This foundation will dry down, but I do recommend using a setting powder and setting spray to further set it in place
Dior Capture Totale Multi-Perfection Creme (universal texture)
The next Dior product I am OBSESSED with it the Dior Capture Totale Universal Texture Cream. As I mentioned above, my skin has been super dry lately, and so hydrating products have been a MUST in my skincare routine. This creme is quite heavy so I use it just at night, rather than in both the AM and PM as recommended.
This moisturizer is supposed to firm up the skin while plumping and smoothing it to leave you with a really smooth, soft, fine line-free skin. I absolutely love how this has been making my skin look and feel, I’m addicted!
Dior Hydra Life Fresh Hydration Sorbet Creme
The Dior Hydra Life Fresh Hydration Sorbet Creme has become my AM skincare routine go-to. This lightweight moisturizer is cooling, refreshing, and is seriously the best morning go-to – I honestly feel the cooling effect makes me feel more alert and awake. Weird, I know – but it’s the truth.
Why I love to use this moisturizer in the AM is because it’s quite lightweight and water-like on the skin. It absorbs in quickly and leaves your skin feeling plump, smooth, and hydrated.
Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Perfume
If you like romantic floral perfumes, then you’ll seriously love this scent. The Miss Dior Bloom Bouquet perfume is a unique mix of peony, musk, and grapefruit which makes it bright and romantic which I love.
One Essential Skin Boosting Super Serum
Before applying my moisturizer at night, I first apply the One Essential Skin Boosting Super Serum. This helps strengthen your skin, and it boosts the effectiveness of your skincare routine overall. This serum is very thin and lightweight and it just leaves the skin feeling so hydrated and soft.
Dior Addict Lacquer Plump in 327
The lipstick I’ve been wearing constantly lately is the Dior Addict Lacquer in 327. This liquid lip is supposed to plump your lips so it does have a slight tingly feeling when first applied, but it’s nothing overwhelming or painful.
327 is a glittery nude shade with is really wearable and comfortable. Glittery lipsticks aren’t often something I gravitate to, but this lipstick has such a small micro glitter that honestly it performs more like a nude lipstick than anything else. I would not say this is a long-wearing lipstick, it will fade and come off throughout the day but it doesn’t seem to fade is a drying or patchy way.
Dior Lip Primer – Crème de Rose
One item that has been living in my purse is the Dior Lip Primer in Crème de Rose. Now they suggest you use this in the AM, PM, and before you apply your lipsticks – but I’ve honestly been wearing this just as a usual lip balm and I love it. I actually recently wore it to a PR event and I was obsessed with the light pink flush it gave to my lips. It’s super hydrating, super pretty, and I absolutely adore how it has made my lips feel over the last few weeks.
