There may be snow on the ground, but Dior is so ready for warmer weather with their new Dior Transat Summer 2014 Collection. It takes inspiration from Dior’s first Resort & Spring line in 1948, a cruise line collection in palettes of navy blue, primary red and sandy beige. It’s limited edition and comes out May 1st, so mark your calendars.
Diorskin Nude Tan Prime & Bronze is a multi-purpose product that is both a foundation primer and self-tanner in one. Not only will it help prep the skin for easy makeup application, but it will give a healthy, radiant glow to the skin. Apply it to freshly cleansed and moisturized skin for a week, and watch as the self-tanning properties gradually darken as the days pass, leaving you with a sun-kissed glow that develops over time.
Diorskin Nude Tan Prime & Bronze comes in a pump style tube with a lightweight, gel like texture that applies and blends into the skin beautifully. I have to admit, it’s a little scary when you first pump in onto the skin, its pretty dark in colour, but once you blend it out, it gives a subtle, natural, healthy, brighter glow to the skin. By day 3 and 4, I really started to see the colour appear, a sun-kissed glow from within, never orange or fake looking. It’s also an amazing primer, it helps to even out skin tone, fill in pores and provides a great base for foundation. It retails for $42 for 30ml.
Diorskin Nude Shimmer gives a subtle combination of both shimmer and colour, while the illuminating powder helps to reflect light and recreate the effect of nude skin, but brighter. With a stroke of the kabuki brush (which is included) the powder catches the light and reveals a sculpted face for a naturally healthy and radiant glow.
Diorskin Nude Shimmer is extremely soft, finely-milled and almost feels like a second skin on. Its velvety texture blends into the skin beautifully and wears for about 8 hours before fading. It gives a sheer wash of colour with a hint of shimmer, but doesn’t emphasize pores or any imperfections. It can be used to highlight and contour the face and is available in two different shades to best suit and compliment any skin tone, Pink and Amber and retails for $57.
Diorskin Nude Shimmer in Pink is a berry pink blush with a subtle sparkle that is perfect for creating a healthy, rosy glow on the cheeks. Its gives a fresh, dewy glow that I don’t even need a separate highlighter.
Diorskin Nude Shimmer in Amber instantly enhances the skin with a gorgeous shimmer of gold thats perfect for contouring the upper forehead, top of cheekbones, bridge of nose and chin to illuminate the face and bring definition to it.

Dior Manicure Transat comes with a CD stamped transparent sticker kit that is applied over the vernis to add a fashionable, unique effect to the nails. Start by applying 2 coats of the Dior Vernis to the nails and let dry, then choose the sticker that best fits your nail size and peel off the backing. Place the sticker on your nail and use your finger to smoother the sticker over the entire nail. Fold excess sticker over the edge of the nail and trim with the nail file.
