The Dior Summer 2018 makeup collection, Cool Wave, is inspired by “the heat of the sun and an indigo pool”. As we seem to be suddenly in Summer here in the UK, it seems like a perfect day to write about it! Here’s a look at the collection with photos and swatches. Enjoy!

With the sun and swimming pool theme, this collection is all about the contrast of hot and cold in how the products look and feel on the skin. The collection just launched HERE.

Peter Philips says, “formulas with a cooling effect in energetic colours melt into sun-kissed skin.”

This is the cool toned edition of the two summer eye palettes. Although these colours aren’t ones I’d use, it’s such a pretty palette with beautifully formulated shadows. I actually really love the deepest tone.

The other palette, Heat Up, has a range of warm tones and is beautiful.

Gold Splash Diorshow Cooling Stick

This eyeshadow stick has a gorgeous cooling texture as you apply it – very similar to the new Bobbi Brown Sparkle sticks but with less glitter. The formula is waterproof, so perfect for Summer. I love the gold shade.

This is such a great formula and delivers a wonderful juicy lip look thanks to the hydra-gel core.

This is so good! It feels so refreshing and moisturising and instantly makes lips look fuller and enhanced.

It’s very long lasting too.

Dior Vernis in Pow 431

Orange nail polish is my thing, so I’m in love with Pow.
