We can never talk enough about getting our weapons ready for the summer. Two months is not a long time period, so if you still haven’t found your perfect summer makeup, here’s the new Dior Milky Dots summer 2016 makeup collection for your review. Don’t worry, the milky dots are not really a part of the makeup… well, almost. What strikes most about this campaign is the blue color that is one of the most popular colors (if not the first one) in most of the makeup collections debuted this month. Set to become available for purchase at Dior counters, online at Sephora and Nordstrom in almost a week, here’s what you get in the collection.
Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powder (Limited Edition)
Four shades of Dior’s classic powder are available with the new hot summer effect, irresistible glow. If you’re not going to use the powder all over your body, you might want to test all four of them to understand what kind of light effect you prefer on your skin.
• 001 Fresh Tan
• 002 Fresh Light
• 003 Warm Tan
• 004 Warm Light
Diorskin Nude Air Summer Glow (Limited Edition)
There is one more option you can choose – the Diorskin Nude Air Summer Glow. It’s softer and more delicate than the powder, and is available only in one shade – amber. This product consists of creamy pearl powder combined with a darker, copper-colored pigments. When put in the same cup, this combination gives you that summer tanned look we all long for.
• 001 – subtle amber
Dior 5 Couleurs Polka Dots Palette (Limited Edition)
The five eyeshadow colors assembled in sets are limited-edition and come in two color palettes. Bain de Mer is a light and fun set with peach, a pair of blues, a beige and sand color, while Escapade is a more neutral collection with beige and bronze shades, perfect for creating a natural looking smokey eye.
• 366 Bain de Mer – peach, sand, milky-blue, turquoise, beige
• 536 Escapade – sand, pale pink, golden yellow, brown, white
Dior Eye Reviver
This is a single set that will cover your eye makeup for the day. It includes a dark brown eyeliner paired with 5 shades of eyeshadow.
• 002 – vanilla, soft pink, light brown, medium brown, dark brown shadows/ dark brown eyeliner
Dior Addict Fluid Shadow (Limited Edition)
The fluid shadow is about the two most obvious things about Dior and everything it sends our way – eccentric and ecstatic. It’s also an awesome solution for a party at the beach. It shines like gold and adds the glitter that can spark through the dark of the night.
• 555 Eccentric – golden
• 775 Ecstatic – brownish bronze
Dior Addict It-Line (Limited Edition)
Two very extraordinary colors were chosen for the eyeliner. No black, no brown, not even white! Jade and lilac instead! Add points to yourself if any of these colors complements your eye color. If it does, you’re truly a Dior girl!
• 359 It-Jade
• 959 It-Lilac
Diorshow Iconic Overcurl (Limited Edition)
While the sun will most likely not burn your eyelashes, it actually does lighten up your hair… any kind of hair on your body. So, add a bronze shade on your eyelashes as well. We think this is one of the best and most interesting makeup products for summer 2016, because Dior has pushed the bronze-colored mascara as its only product for eyelashes in this collection: there just has to be a master plan behind this.
• 662 Over Bronze – brownish bronze
Dior Addict Milky Tint
Dior Addict Milky Tint is actually a toner fluid for your lips, if lipstick dries them up too much. They come in more colors than the lipstick, but the shades are more pastel and less intense.
• 026 Milky Pearl – pearl
• 126 Milky Pure – nude
• 156 Milky Pastel – pale pink
• 286 Milky Plum – lilac
• 356 Milky Peach – pale peach
• 376 Milky Pop – pale strawberry
Dior Addict Lipstick
Juicy and summery, these lipstick shades can turn you into a Dior addict for life. They are intense with color, but not overly bright. Of course, they are named according to your plans for the upcoming summer vacation.
• 533 Appeal – coral
• 581 Beat – rose
• 613 Break – beige brown
• 773 Play – strawberry
Dior Vernis Polka Dots Manicure Kit (Limited Edition)
Now, here’s the highlight of the collection. The manicure kit actually includes a tool for painting those polka dots on your nails, bringing the retro back, activating all the cuteness you collected inside during this winter, and targeting all that Dior energy towards summer 2016.
• 001 Pastilles – milk, blue
• 002 Confettis – mango, coral
• 003 Plumetis – pale pink, lilac
The Dior Milky Dots summer 2016 makeup collection will be available in the US market next month, April 2016.
