It’s clear from this array of products that Dior is all about pink and coral for the warmer months–they’ve got a pink for everyone from delicate to bold.
As you already know, since I’m always gushing about them, Dior’s gel shine polishes are pretty much the best in all the land. A great brush, perfect, high-shine formula makes for a consistently beautiful and easy application. Ever wondered if luxury nail polish is worth it? It is. While you’re at it, pick up Dior’s Gel Top Coat as well.
Rose needs 3 coats to be opaque–it’s pretty sheer. The finish is similar to the shade seen in the photo, but lighter with more orange tones and a slight gold shimmer. A polish for the girly-girl.
Pink is a soft, coral pink, again with a touch of the slightest golden shimmers.
Corail is a classic, pink-toned Coral, a staple in the summer for most. A gorgeous, juicy colour for the summer.

Rouge Brillant Gloss
A new addition to Dior’s makeup range, these glosses are super light, non-sticky and perfectly shiny. They feel comfortable and are meant to hydrate the lips with the power of vitamine E, and plump the lips with collagen. The applicator is really easy to use and is like a cylinder with a diagonal cut across it, making a tip.
Bonheur – A delicate, light pink, is translucent enough that it works with your own natural colour to fit your complexion.
Darling – A beautiful fuschia, and my favourite and the most pigmented of the three, perfect for spring and summer, instantly brightens the complexion. Not too blue toned or too warm and leaves a pretty pink stain to the lips after it’s gone.
Victoire – Described as a “soft, fresh, coral”, it actually looks to be quite orange. I was pretty skeptical of it, but, again, it is quite translucent and works to fit your own complexion.

Rouge Dior Lipsticks
These lipsticks are creamy, hydrating and long-lasting, providing a natural shine with great colour. For the most part, I find that Dior’s lipsticks provide great coverage, but for a few, I find my natural lip colour still shows through.
Paname – To be honest, I’m not really sure where to go with this one. It is really a brown. The coverage is there, but I’m not totally sure who this would suit. Just really brought the 90’s back for me, and I’m not sure I liked it.
Miss – A classic pink. My natural lip colour showed through, but with a lip liner underneath, it is pretty and feminine, and perfect for the warmer months.
Hollywood – This is a gutsy, cool-toned neon pink, with surprisingly great coverage. At first I was a little overwhelmed, but it’s definitely one of those colours that look so awesome a person on the street would ask you what you were wearing.
Times Square – This strawberry pink-red is one of my favourites. It is bright without being bold and is perfect for the office or for a night out. Coverage is A+.
Victoire – Just as the gloss, this is described as a coral, but I found it to be much more of a soft orange than the gloss. Coverage wasn’t great and it sort of built up on my lips, however, I could see this colour looking pretty on some complexions.
Soho – A gorgeous raspberry, blue-toned red. Another winner in my books on all fronts!
All available April 1st in Canada. When the products become available online, I will insert links.
