Dior Spring 2016 flows in like a breath of fresh air and is inspired Christian Dior’s childhood home in Granville. It is depicted Peter Philips’ interpretation of Granville’s “vibrant colours and crystalline light, its youthful spirit and the freshness of the sea spray”. Lovely! Here’s a look at the collection with swatches.

This is a multicolour collection with a glowing and luminous theme at its heart, in terms of formulations and textures.

So this pen offers a waterproof shadow on one end and a waterproof liner on the other. Both products literally glide on to the skin, blend easily, and once set, they last and last. I have shade 157 Iris which has a sparkly multi-iridescent grey shadow and a midnight blue liner.

The palette I have is called Blue Garden and features a grey taupe, a charcoal grey, a white with flashes of mauve, and an apricot – and a blue that matches Bleuette nail polish. The texture is super creamy and literally melts into the skin.

Rosée is a beautiful pinky nude and I love this formulation for soothing and conditioning the lips.

I love this shade for Spring! So fresh and bright.

It is such a pretty collection. Dior really do know how to do pretty and the formulations are so good. I am absolutely loving the Nude Air and the Colour & Contour has the most incredible texture and pigmentation. Also Bleuette is the perfect nail colour for Spring.

I think the Spring collections may just be my favourites of the whole year. Dior Spring 2016 is available now and is in stock at the time of writing HERE
