Dior Summer 2016 Collection Preview - Milky Dots

Last week the Dior counter in Debenhams, Cardiff hosted a bloggers event for their new Summer collection. I love these events as they are a great way to check out the new collections, unfortunately I couldn't make the event so I was kindly invited back to have a one to one makeover at the counter so I could check out all of the new stuff.

My makeover was yesterday and was done by Ant, who always does such a fantastic job at applying makeup. When I arrived at the counter the first thing that caught my eye was the amazing new collection for summer. It's called Milky Dots and has products in colors perfect for summer. I love blues and this collection has plenty of them. It's also polka dot themed too which I think looks great.

Here's what Dior say about the new collection.

Joyous, elegant and timeless, polka dots are at the heart of the collection by Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup. A vibrant collection featuring confetti-strewn nails, palettes of azure, beige, bronze and melon eyeshadows, and lips kissed with delicious, milky colour like an invitation to dive into a fantasy-filled world.




I was eager to try out all of the new products, my personal favorite being the blue eyeshadow quad. Out of the two palettes, I liked that one best and I'm especially loving the visuals for this collection. 



Ant did a wonderful look for summer on me using the palette I liked. I especially liked the blue eyeliner on my bottom lash line, using the blue eyeshadow in the palette. For my foundation, Airflash foundation was used. This is a new product for me as I haven't tried it before. At the moment I'm using Forever, which is one of my favorite foundations ever. I did like the glow that Airflash gave my skin.

Milky Dots has to be one of my favorite summer collections I've seen this year. Summer is always a great time for makeup as bright blues and greens start to appear along with a nice glow from the sun.












Bain De Mer was the eyeshadow I liked and it was the one I took away with me. I really like the other palette too and might just get that one too.


I really enjoyed my makeover and checking out all of the new products from the collection. I also got a really awesome goody bag too along with this really snazzy wristband. I think it's fantastic to have these one to one sessions for us bloggers who couldn't make the actual event. Thanks Ant.

  5. Absolutely loving the blue undereye liner! There's something so 80's about it but I love a retro look.
