I was happily swatching the latest Dior Blue Tie Collection at Copenhagen duty free, and I was ooo-ing and aahh-ing at how sexy the deep navy blue shades were. And later I started swatching Dior Petal Shine and was wondered why these shades looked so familiar. Well, funnily enough this is the reaction you get when you have too much makeup, and have completely forgetten that you even have that product sitting at home.
So I walked out of duty free, and stood tall and proud, for not succumbing into my spending temptations. I went straight home to my makeup stash and started swatching like crazy, just so I could get rid of those persistent and lingering thoughts of Dior. Some moments I am remotely interested in makeup, and theres also days where I can't stop melting my credit card.
So swatch swatch swatch I did...
The deeper shades (which honestly is not that deep or intense) are probably my favourite of the palette. Thoughts that run through my head when swatching were 'non-offensive' 'subtle' 'pretty'.
BUT, it's one of those palettes where I just get bored of too easily. And I completely forget about the colours, so I never reach for it unless I have rare days like that I crave everything from Dior. On the lids, there's hardly any colour differentiation and must I say... it looks really BORING.
Or maybe I'm having one of those sh*t days that no pictures are coming out the quality that I would like. Maybe it's Petal Shine itself that just has a quality that is hard to capture on pictures. Nevertheless, I am just plain unsatisfied.
On the other hand...
Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss Imaginere is totally up my alley lately. It glides on my lips like a moisturising lipbalm, smells sensational, stays on for a good 2 hours, and comes in a sleek black tube. The colour imaginere is a medium blue-toned pink.

I hope you're having a good Monday so far.
