As if the Dior Transat Summer 2014 collection weren't enough escapist beauty lovin' fun, now the luxury label is transporting us to a technicolour wonderland with its latest launches. The new Dior Addict It-Lash mascara and Dior Addict It-Line eyeliner, as well as Diorshow Mono eyeshadow, are all available at Dior counters now. But if you want to snag the limited-edition pop hues, you better hurry. Ready for a closer look?
Very, very few mascaras can stand up to my uber-oily eyelids, so I'm sing-from-the-rooftops psyched to report that Dior Addict It-Lash ($32) is one of them. The polymer-bristle applicator defines and fans out every little lash sans clumps. It-Pink can be intimidatingly bright after a few coats, but It-Blue and It-Purple are surprisingly subtle on dark lashes like mine, noticeable only under very bright light. If you have dark eyes and lashes too, swap your normal black mascara for It-Blue to make the whites of your eyes look whiter, or use It-Purple to play up brown peepers.
The best part of It-Lash? Despite its miraculous smudge-proof properties, it comes off easily with warm water.
Likewise, Dior Addict It-Line ($32) makes me jazz-hands happy because it's one of only 3 eyeliners I've ever tried that stays put on my eyelids without transfer or fading. With a consistency somewhere between liquid liner and gel, this heavily pigmented liner dries quickly to a shiny, smudge-resistant finish, but rinses away cleanly with warm water. The brush's superfine tip makes a precise cat-eye a cinch. Available in It-Blue, It-Pink, and It-Purple.
Although these Diorshow Mono eyeshadows ($32) look intimidatingly bright in their all-black palettes, they go on quite sheer in the first application, offering build-able coverage and different finishes when used wet or dry. It-Purple and It-Pink are matte and bright, while It-Yellow has a bit of shimmer.
So, the question is: Are you feeling electric this summer? If not, don't worry about it: All three products are also available in basic black so you can look classic chic all year round.
