My Picks

Although the complete Dior Cool Wave 2018 Collection is beautiful, I ended up buying few products in this first round of purchase. Definitely going to add more in my Cool Wave collection later.


The products I am going to review and swatch in this post and my next post are:

♦ Five Couleurs Cool Wave High Fidelity Colours and Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 5.50g/ 0.19 Oz – Made in France) in 367 Cool Down

First comes Five Couleurs Cool Wave High Fidelity Colours and Effects Eyeshadow Palette, The first thing which couldn’t resist me buying this palette are the gorgeous shades perfect for summer. The texture is creamy and light weight. They are easily blend-able with luxury feel. These eyeshadows are formulated to create a glamorous wet effect on skin with such a subtle faint shimmer. Colours are buildable from light to dramatic look. As you can see in swatch below on hand that the shade midnight blue is more powdery and pigmented as compared to other shades in palette.



Swatch on hand Dior Five Couleurs Cool Wave High Fidelity Colours and Effects Eyeshadow Palette


For this collection, the iconic Dior eye makeup palette meets a wave of refreshment with two harmonies: one in blue lagoon shades and the other in warm Indian summer tones. Both reveal a pattern inspired by the waves that ripple from a drop of water hitting the surface.

This eyeshadow palette of 5 beautiful shades comes in a black sleek compact with a mirror in it. In centre Christian Dior trade mark CD is beautifully embossed with wavy pattern around it. Two applicator brushes are included, one is the foam applicator other is long eyeshadow brush and angled hair brush for liner application.

I have it in 367 Cool Down, Below I swatch it on eyes using all shades in palette.

There are two palettes in this collection

367 Cool Down: is a collection of beautiful blues with shimmery and satin finish, including shimmery turquoise blue, shimmery ice blue, shimmery midnight blue, shimmery pastel blue and satin denim blue.

597 Heat Up: include gold, copper, orange red, brown and bronze shades of shimmer and satin finish.

597 Heat Up

Dior Addict Lipstick- Hydra-Gel Core Mirror Shine Limited Edition comes with a hydra-gel core in the centre of each shade which creates the mirror shine effect on lips while keeping them moisturized throughout wear.


Dior ushers in a new era in lip makeup with the breakthrough creation of a lipstick that boasts a hydra-gel core with a top coat effect for sensational mirror shine.


It glides on lips effortlessly creating a signature glossy sheen. Texture is smooth, creamy and very light on the lips. Appearance is glossy and very moisturizing. It doesn’t dry at all, stays on put for long without eating. Formula is very thin but fully opaque and easily buildable with full coverage.

The colour I ordered from this collection is Pink Drop which appears perfect subtle pink. Shade can be build from light pink to fuchsia pink.


Packaging is super cute with silver tube and magnetic effect cap which secure it properly. It is also trust-worthy for travel without any issue of faulty lipstick cap.

In Cool Wave summer collection Dior Vernis Gel Shine & Long Wear Nail Lacquer brings such a nice pop of bright colours, perfect for beach days or you enjoy the sun at poolside. The energetic colours completely go with summer whether you wear them on toes or nails.



For a summer synonymous with fun and freedom, Dior Vernis plays with bright colours.

Formula is improved to thicker with long wear. It lasts for long without any chipping. Colours are rich with beautiful texture which creates a glass-like shine. I have it in colour 541 Wizz is a watermelon with shimmery shine.
