28 Mar Makeup Review, Swatches: Dior Birds Of Paradise 2013 Summer Collection – Nude BB Cream, Eyeshadow Palettes, Duo Blush, Jelly Lip Pen
Coming to Dior counters nationwide, as well as on Dior.com beginning in May 2013, comes an exotic and colorful Dior Bird of Paradise Summer Color Collection. As always, the carnage pattern is Dior‘s signature and is seen in the Diorskin Nude Tan Paradise Duo Blush Compact. Shades of blues, greens and subtle accents of yellow are among the palette color choices for this summer collection.
Vibrant colors, sophisticated fabrics like organza and silk, and ornamented details (often featuring feathers) exuded exotic femininity and glamour. Drawing from nature’s tropical paradises, Dior takes a journey through Latin America once again to evoke the beauty of fresh greenery, glistening waters and exotic creatures.
The Bird of Paradise Collection embraces the vibrancy of nature and translates it to versatile, wearable color for summer. Lips are inspired by tropical temperatures, while eyeshadow palettes feature a spectrum of luminous marine blues, bamboo greens and subtle accents of soft yellow for dramatic, shimmering lids inspired by the plumage of an exotic bird. You can see Peacock and Blue Lagoon and understand why they do remind one of an exotic creature. The texture and shine is opulent.
Nude Tan BB Creme ($44.00)
Dior has infused its original BB Creme with a natural bronzing agent. The exclusive Tan Beautifier Complex works in combination with the sheer Complexion Corrector to enhance and prolong a natural healthy glow. In addition, Diorskin Nude BB Tan Creme features hydrating ingredients including jisten, mauve and hibiscus, as well as green, red, and white tea extracts to offer the same skin-illuminating effects as the original Diorskin Nude BB Creme, now with the added benefits of SPF 15. Available in two universal shades: 001 and 002.
