Dior – Diorskin Nude Tan Golden Shimmer Powder (LE), Transat Edition

Dior Golden Shimmer Powder opener

For Summer 2014, it appears that Dior has created two parallel nautically themed collections – the Transat Collection for Europe and Canada, and Transatlantique for the US, with a few items limited edition and exclusive to particular retailers, such as this Diorskin Nude Tan Golden Shimmer Powder– available only at Holt Renfrew (Canada) and Saks Fifth Avenue (US).

Kevin Murphy Plumping Line opener

The latest from Australian tress master Kevin Murphy, is the new PLUMPING.LINE, aimed at those with fine and/or thinning hair. Having been blessed with good hair genes, I’ve never really fussed all that much with my mane or had any issues with thinning, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve begun to notice some changes, in particular, my hair doesn’t seem to grow as fast as it once used to. Having had…

The newly launched Dior Addict Fluid Stickline, is a true innovation and something of an optical illusion as well. What at first glance appears to be a lipstick housed in a luxe lucite casing, is actually a unique new hybrid product with the pigmentation of a lipstick, the easy wand application of a gloss and the high gloss shine of a lacquer. Bearing names inspired from Dior’s history and…

Confession: I’ve never had a professional facial (I’ve also never been to a spa or have had a massage either, for that matter *insert stunned silence here*), but I’ve read countless reports on the experience, and the common thread expressed by all, is how refreshed, revived & glowing their skin feels after. Well, now we can all enjoy that feeling with Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Boosting…

More than a finishing powder but less than a blush/bronzer, these powders are all about ‘radiance’.
