yacht sailing with dior

I've purchased these items from Dior's Transat collection a while ago but here's finally a review. I've fallen for their palette but I decided to stay reasonable so I picked up two. First of all, I found the blue of this Sailor 700 nail polish absolutely stunning. Deep and electric at the same time, it is perfect to rock out your summer. The nail polishes from this collection come with a nail file and some stickers. I haven't tried the stickers yet but I've looked up at some looks on the internet and it comes out to be pretty nice! Then, when I watched their commercial for this new collection I thought that the red lips was a must this summer. This bright and strong red matches perfectly the electric blue in my opinion. With blue and red, you obtain a french style marinière look and you can never go wrong with that! I'm not going on the French Riviera this year but I already feel like strolling into the streets of Saint Tropez with this look. Besides, the texture of the Dior Addict Lipstick, Mayday 651, is soft and acts like a lip balm and hydrates your lips the way you need. 

To me, this collection reflects their objectives: it's everything that you need for a chic croisière in the Mediterranean sea!

vitalumière aqua vs. perfection lumière velvet

As I previously said, I was never a huge fan of foundation until I found Vitalumière Aqua. And after a recent release from Chanel, I fell in love with the Perfection Lumière Velvet. Although I don't wear foundation every day, before summer days and after long final months, I thought that having two of them was not excessive. Besides, the Perfection Lumière Velvet suits my skin best. As I said before, the Aqua Lumière is ideal for its lightness and flawlessness. It gives a natural look and acts like a BB cream, just as if you didn't wear anything but yet evening your face skin. The Velvet however, is perfect when you have some oily zones on your skin. It smoothens up your skin and gives it a matte effect. Thus, my skin looks perfectly smooth, even and absolutely soft. I would recommend the Aqua for an everyday and natural use whilst the Velvet can be used when you really want your skin to be perfect: a day or night out, a meeting, etc. Both of them have an SPF 15 and protects you from the sun. The shade I use (before finally getting a sun tan if summer decides to come someday) is Beige 20. I never used foundation during summer when my skin is coloured. Oh and needless to say, the foundation brush from Chanel is absolutely amazing and helps me to apply the product correctly. It is a pricy brush (about 30-40euros) but it is worth than a cheap brush that will wrongfully apply the product and that will die in about two months!
