EN     Some time ago I was invited to breakfast. And not any other, but breakfast with Dior. You can imagine my excitement. I barely kept it together, and I must say, I'm still at the same state of mind. But what I'm most excited about are the things I could take away with me from the event. And no fear, I'm gonna share! Let's start with the new Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss, continue with a simple way on how to never buy the wrong shade of a foundation and end this all with a fun Instagram account you will want to follow.

On the March 1st a renewed Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss was released. Exactly, Dior changed a formula of a bestseller and introduced a hydra-plumping texture that offers 3 benefits: ultra-plumping, ultra-glossy finish and ultra-hydration. 18 addictive colours were created by Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, which come in three different shine groups -  sparkling, iridescent and sheer. I myself have the UltraDior #765, same shade Jennifer Lawrence is wearing in the Dior campaign. The fuchsia pink hue that’s filled with pink and silver shimmery bits, highly compliments the cool undertones of my skin, the texture is so lightweight and non-sticky in feel, that I literally forget I'm wearing anything at all, and my lips feel hydrated long after the gloss is off my lips. Bonus: the gloss has a new, crystal-handled applicator that maximizes the glossy result and deposits the perfect dose of product for greater precision of application. It's the same one Dior make-up artists have used in the backstage of Dior fashion shows around the world. Basically it's the it product in terms of glosses, and glosses, believe it or not, are comming back into fashion, just like the 80's theme on the catwalks. The best timing for spoiling yourself with a new gloss!

Did you know that there is a gadget (seen in the pictures) that determines which shade of the foundation and powder is the right one for your skin tone? Yeah, me neither.  But it turns out that there is one of each in the biggest Dior beauty stores (in Riga that would be the booth at Stockmann). Basically the quest to find the perfect foundation tone is over. Hallelujah.

Another thing I have been enjoying daily since the breakfast is the bits Dior shares on one of its official Instagram accounts that is solely dedicated to beauty  - @diormakeup. It actually launched during our breakfast, so we were the first to follow and see bts straight from the a/w16 fashion show in Paris. Lots of inspiration and tips, what else could you ask for?

LV     Pirms kāda laika tiku ielūgta uz brokastīm. Un ne kurām katrām, bet skaistuma brokastīm ar Dior. Varat iedomāties manu prieku, ko tādu saņemot pastkastītē. Taču visvairāk mani pārsteidza brokastu laikā atklātais, tas, ko varēju paņemt sev līdzi. Bez uztraukuma - padalīšos! :) Sāksim ar atjaunoto Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss, turpināsim ar perfektā tonālā krēma toņa piemeklēšanu un beigsim ar piesekošanu izglītojošam un interesantam Instagram kontam. 


1. martā tika izlaista dižpārdokļa uzlabota versija - tieši tā, Dior uzlaboja un pilnveidoja jau leģendārā Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss formulu, lai parādītu to jaunā gaismā. Jaunā formula lūpas padara vizuāli kuplākas, mitrinātākas un piesātinātākas 18 toņu variācijās, kā nemainīgu komponentu atstājot glancētu spīdumu, kura intensitāti varat noteikt izvēloties spīdumu kādā no trim tekstūru grupām - mirdzoša, zaigojoša vai glancēta. Pati lietoju toni UltraDior #765, to pašu, kas uzklāts uz Dženiferas Lorensas lūpām Dior kampaņā. Rozā fuksijas tonis lieliski pieskaņojas vēsajam sejas  ādas tonim, kamēr produkts uz lūpām ir tik viegls un samtains, ka tā esamību uz lūpām var arī piemirst. Lūpas jūtas mitrinātas vēl ievērojamu laika periodu pēc spīduma noēšanās (kas notiek diezgan ātri, kā jau spīdumiem).  Vēl viens bonuss - slotiņas tipa aplikators (tādu pašu lieto Dior mākslinieki modes skatēs), kas paņem precīzu daudzumu produkta vienai lietošanas reizei. Manuprāt, šis ir lielisks produkts siltajai sezonai, īpaši tagad, kad spīdums nāk atpakaļ modē, tāpat kā 80. gadu stils uz modes mēlēm visā pasaulē. Laiks sevi palutināt! 


Vai zināji, ka pastāv ierīce, kas precīzi noteiks kādu pūdera vai tonālā krēma toni tev ir jāizvēlas? Es arī ne, bet izrādās, ka pastāv gan (redzama bildēs), turklāt tā ir sastopama lielākajos Dior kosmētikas stendos visā pasaulē. Latvijā to atradīsi veikala Stockmann Dior nodaļā. 

Vēl mani, un drīz arī tevi, ik pa laikam iepriecina mazie ieskati Dior skaistuma pasaulē caur vienu no Dior oficiālajiem Instagram kontiem - @diormakeup. Interesants fakts - tas tika palaists mūs brokastu laikā - bijām vienas no pirmajām sekotājām un iepazināmies ar aizkulisēm tieši no a/w 16 modes skates Parīzē. 










Thanks again for the invite, Dior!
