Dior Summer Mix Collection 2013 Product Review

The Dior 2013 Summer Mix Collection, which was introduced several weeks ago, is all about cheeks & nails! I have to admit, Dior's Summer Collections are always pretty & fun. Click HERE to view last year's collection. The 2013 collection is composed of 4 nail lacquers (tie & dye, sunnies, capeline, creoles) and 4 creme/cream blushes (bikini, capri, panama, pareo).

I immediately became smitten with every color after watching the video (below). Vibrant pinks, red and orange are the colors of this collection. The video shows nail lacquers lying poolside, diving and splashing about. It made me put on my Chanel sunnies. Sorry, I don't have Dior sunnies. LOL The company that made the video for Dior get's an A frickin plus, because it totally made me buy. Then the hard part my friends...

I limited myself to one nail lacquer & cheek creme. I went with the orange-y ones. I chose Sunnies & Panama. I can't complain about either and give them both supersweet ratings. Yes, I'm feeling well. The nail lacquer applies well, dries fast and is long lasting (5 days). You only need one coat. The creme blush feels like Maybelline's bouncy blush, but applies much better. Apply with a lite hand. You don't need much. This collection is not cheap. Let's not discuss prices. Someone hand me a colada :)

Sweet-Bittersweet-NotSweet
The 2013 Dior Summer Mix Collection is SUPERsweet!

  4. Pretty nail polish shades! I was not a believer in expensive nail polish until I tried Butter London. This sounds like a great find too! Have a wonderful day!

  7. Oh, I hadn't seen that video yet - no wonder it convinced you to buy, it's so fun! Chanel has been running adds for their classic nailpolishes here in Paris and it's all I can do not to sprint to the Chanel counter at my nearest department store and buy them all :) I love that you chose the orange Dior shades, I know some people are nervous about orange make-up but it's my favourite summer shade and I think you wear it beautifully.

  9. Firstly, what a clever little video - so cute! I love the summery names too and Sunnies looks like my kind of colour as I always go for coral shades in summer. Chanel Orange Fizz is my favourite at the moment but I'm tempted to treat myself to this one for a change!

  10. Looking fab, Kim! The coral hues were a great choice. I definitely need to try the one-coat nail polish. Sounds like it's pretty durable--which is what I need. Have a wonderful "Little Friday!" xx T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  12. So precious!! It looks sweet on you :) Your little cheeks, haha :) Gorgeous. Love these colours, very summery and fun. I had a feeling it was not cheap, haha. But, if it works it's ok and Dior is something you can sometimes find cheaper in places. Loved this. Have a great day doll :))) And so excited my prize came today :)))))) Will post on it soon :)))

  32. Wow these are great colors. I was just looking at my feet today and thinking the next color I want to do is a neon red/orange. And it is worth paying extra for polish it stays on much longer.
