{Fall favourites}

Suffice to say my favourite shade when it comes to autumn (fall) is burgundy. What, you didn’t know?! From berry hues of handbags to deepened wine lips I’m all about mixing elements of this gorgeous autumn appropriate shade in to my wardrobe.

It lends itself marvellously to shades of black, mustard, cream and brown. Chocolate eyes and wine lips…one of my favourite looks for autumn.

What’s your go-to colour palette for this season?

revlon colorburst matte lacquer balms

{Revlon Colorburst balms}

There comes a time in every beauty addict’s life when she meets a product that supersedes her expectations. I first spotted the incredibly vibrant, pink and matte shade, Unapologetic on Deanne from My Fash Avenue. Seriously the girl couldn’t have looked any more fly in this lippie. Naturally, a bold shade like that sparked my curiosity.

 Just look at the pigment on these babies. I’m usually a matte lady but even the lacquers had me lusting for every shade. I’m finding that on the days I’m indecisive about which lippie to pick, I’ll reach for one of these. They just always get it right. Containing a triple butter complex of sheacoconut and mango butters you’ll never be left with cracked lips even with the matte formula.

For those of you (often like me) who need a little more luxury in their products – don’t stop reading just yet.

This product compares so closely to the Rouge Allure Velvet texture by Chanel. Say whaaat? True story. I know, I know. You just wish this was a sexy ‘Mercedes click’, black case as well.

{Matte – Audacious}

A warm coral that’ll see a lot of sun this season – It’s a ‘play-it-safe’, pretty shade that’ll look good on every skin tone.

{Matte – Standout}

Standout is a saucy little shade that appears to plump the lips up for a sexy, burgundy pout. I couldn’t help but wear it for an entire work week and that’s a lot for me…

{Matte – Mischievous}

This light lovely is wearing a little warm after swatching the other shades but you can still see the lighter, cooler hue of coral in it’s pigment. With my ‘pale’ skin I can get away with it now but it may look strange in the summer when I’m sporting a tan. Will keep you posted!

Dior spring nails

{Dior Vernise Spring 2014 in Bouquet, Porcelaine Bloom & Top Coat in Perle}

Dior nail polishes have taken their place in my favourite nail polish formula of all time, right next to YSL’s offerings. There’s nothing more satisfying (in the DIY mani world) than layering on a shiny, sweep of colour with the utmost of ease. Believe it or not, more of my favourite shades aren’t easy to work with but the flat blush, quicky drying, glossy formula that Dior has to offer is sublime. Best of all? These spring shades are to die for.

Gimme moah!

{Bloom}

This vibrant shade is spring/summer perfect. A fuchsia that would compliment any skin tone.

{Porcelaine}

The name on everyone’s lips and soon-to-be on everyone’s tips. It kinda reminds me of Chanel’s Riva (the perfect sky blue) and Dior are making this eggshell totally cool again. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. This totally makes me think of a shade that Beyonce would wear.

{Bouquet}

Oh hai pretty in pink coral shade that’s perfect for spring. While Bloom fit better for a summer pedi, Bouquet is the ultimate in daytime spring shades. I’ll take this beaut for a ride when I want a a feminine and fancy mani.

Introducing Dior’s new topcoat (reminiscent of YSL’s La Laque Couture) this shimmering Perle sets to a matte finish with a hint of sparkle (pretty cool of you ask me). I love the original effect it offers and it pretty much enhances most shades it’s partnered with.

Which of Dior’s new shades are you looking forward to most?

These beautylicious products were sent for consideration and were good enough to make the cut!
