Dior 5 Colour Eyeshadow Palette EXTASE PINKS: Review & Swatches

In Dior‘s words:  The legendary Dior palette, with its rich and long-lasting colours, offers an infinite range of possibilities. Our advice: Apply the lightest shade to the inside corner of the upper eyelid and a darker shade along the upper lash line. To finish, add a third colour to the corner of the middle lid and, for intensity and emphasis, apply another shade under the lower lash line.

What I say: I love this palettes. Ok, so they’re not the cheapest but the quality makes up for the price tag. Plus, it’s almost impossible to run out of it! This is Extase Pinks, 804, with five gorgeous shimmery eyeshadows:

The colour combo is quite interesting, don’t you think? My green eyes like purple – grey combination with a pop of pink in the inner corners…but be warned, this is not your every day palette! However, this would make for a great statement look for those special evenings 😉

On the plus side:

  • a vast number of colour combinations to choose from
  • highly pigmented
  • superb blendability
  • very chic packaging
  • comes with 2 eyeshadow applicators which are pretty durable
  • great staying power
  • a purchase that will last a long time

But… actually no buts this time. Apart from the price, of course. Although, IMO, 50 € isn’t that expensive for 5 eyeshadows of such a decent quality!

PRICE: Around 50 €.

Great dupe: Can’t think of any…Maybe, only maybe wet n wild if you are on a very tight budget.

Would I repurchase? Absolutely!

Dior Lip Maximizer review

If you’re into one-offs  (including one night stands), skip this one. It’s just too good for that.

What Dior says:

Dior Addict Lip Maximizer: Collagen active lip-gloss

Dior presents a revolutionary lip care system that boosts volume instantly and restructures in the long term, thanks to a unique blend of hyaluronic and marine-based fillers that smooth, moisturize and leave lips irresistibly plump. Apply under regular lipstick or gloss for volume and shine, or morning and night as a 15-day intensive cure. Its fresh mint-vanilla scent makes it even more addictive.

What I say:

I could sum it up in just one word: orgasmic.  It’s just that good. Why? Let’s see:

  • it’s Dior – do you seriously need more proof? ok…
  • very shiny but not over the top (doesn’t make you look like you’ve just eaten half of McDonalds)
  • visibly plumps up your lips
  • cooling effect is very comfy during summer, perhaps not so much when it’s cold outside though
  • such a cute packaging 🙂
  • one tube lasts me at least half a year, which is not so bad for around 25 €
  • it comes in a clear shade (apparently there is one more – ”Apricot”, which I haven’t come across yet)


Would I repurchase? Most definitely!
