Here is a look at the Summer collection 2018 Cool Wave from Dior. The collection carries some beautiful, bright and fresh colors this year. The whole collection looks amazing, and the shades from the collection was inspired from the contrast between aquatic blues and euphoric shades. The collection introduces 5 Couleurs Cool Wave palette in Cool Down and Heat Up, Diorshow Cooling Sticks in Bronze Wave, Gold Splash and Fresh Pink, Dior Addict Lip Tattoo in Litchi, Orange, Watermelon and Cranberry as well as Dior Addict Lipstick in White Splash and Nude Chill, Lip Maximizer in Pool Blue and Dior Vernis in Splash, Wizz and Blop. I received a couple of press samples from the brand for reviewing purposes and I found the whole collection is amazing.
Up first is a look at the 5 Couleurs Cool Wave palette (C$73.00) in Cool Down and Heat Up is a combination of 5 beautiful and very well-coordinated eyeshadow palettes in a pattern inspired by the ripple of a drop hitting the surface of water. Both palettes carries two very different shades and tones. These 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palettes have been formulated with the new Dior ultra fine, water affect texture that brings out the eyes with intense colour. The texture of the shadows are amazingly soft and smooth and blends beautifully together.
Splashed with Cool Down palette is a combination of blues with turquoise, midnight blue, pastel blue and denim tones that easily blends in together and offers a surprisingly natural contrast with the golden glow of summer skin. There are many reasons to wear blue this year and this palette carries a great range of shades that are wearable during the day and night.
On the other hand there is Heat Up palette with warm under tones that carries luminous brown, coral and nude shades with pop of colour. This palette is ideal for all skin tones and texture and can be worn all year-long.
Up next is the Diorshow Cooling Stick that comes in three shades. The pencil glides on eyes beautifully and leaves that fresh and solid colour with a wet effect finish that is so trending this season. It creates and 3D dimension to the eyes and catches the sunlight any time of the day. The formula is feather light and stick to the skin so it doesn’t move for a long-lasting summer look.
Next to the lips – there are quite few formulas that Dior is introducing this season. Dior Addict Lipsticks (C$44.00 each) are one of them, they are introducing two shades in this line (White Splash and Nude Chill). These are super hydrating lip formula that glides on to the lips leaving it soft and smooth all day long. I received this in Nude Chill which is a beautiful bronze nude shade that enhances all skin tones. You can wear it during the day or night, it carries some nice fine golden shimmers that adds luminosity to the lips.
Next is the Dior Addict Lip Tattoo (C$37.00 each) are highly pigmented tinted lip inks with no transfer finish and an extreme 10 hour hold. I have been a true lover for this formula from last year when Dior introduced these lip tattoo formula reviewed here. And this year Dior introduces these lip ink tattoo in vibrant and scented shades. I received this in Watermelon which is a bright and mouth-watering pink. It really gives lips that fresh look while the ultra pigmented formula with its water finish and nude feel fuses with the skin of the lips in a matter of seconds and transforms your lips tinted.
Last for the lips Dior introduces the new Lip Maximizer in pool Blue (C$42.00 each) with mint extract that instantly give lips freshness and irresistibly plumps the lips. It literally creates an incomparably shiny lips with icy blue accents. You can wear it alone or on top of any lipstick to create that juicy lip look this summer season.
Swatches of all three lip formula:
Can never forget about nails and this time Dior brings Dior Vernis (C$34.00 each) in some bright and beautiful shades to play with and how your creativity. You can see the clash of colors in nails too this year with cool and warm shades. I received a press sample in POW which is a light coral shade that enhance all skin tones. The formula is amazing and carries a very fine shimmer.
I’m loving the Summer 2018 Cool Wave collection, the whole collection looks amazing and beautiful. Its simple yet very glamorous, the shades are wearable and there is something for every one. Dior is one of the brands that always brings newness and really know how to play with colors each season. I always look forward for the future launches from Dior. This year I personally love the color combinations for eyes, lips and nails. I always like to wear warm shades on my eyes but after seeing and testing the Cool Down palette I’m looking forward to go out of my comfort zone and wear some nice blue shades on my eyelids this summer, I will definitely share the looks with you all on my Instastories. For the lips both Dior Addict Lipstick and Tattoo are amazing formulas and especially if you want that juicy lip look layering the Lip Maximizer over Dior Addict Tattoo will do the job. Overall a huge thumbs up for the collection and its now available at all department stores at Dior counters.
