Yesterday I shared with you Dior’s Trianon collection for Spring 2014, a collection of beautiful pastel shades with bright pops of colour. Although quite chilly in Toronto, today’s beautiful sunny day inspired me to reach for the coral, peach Dior Vernis in Bouquet… and what better way to add some pop to your life than with a gradient?

Here is the gorgeous Bouquet sponged over OPI’s My Vampire is Buff, my go-to base for nail art (and the perfect shade if you don’t love white):

Dior_Vernis S14 BouquetGradientHow absolutely pretty is Bouquet?

Don’t forget to check out Dior Vernis in Porcelaine and Perle in yesterday’s post, if you missed it!

I absolutely cannot wait to wear the Dior Vernis Trianon shades – the colours are pure perfection and make me think of sunny days ahead. Dior Vernis has quickly become a favourite in terms of colour choices, wear and durability, and that shine is amazing! All four new shades are available in limited release beginning in mid-January.

What do you think of my summery gradient? 🙂

Continuing on in with its Versailles-inspired looks, this time from the 18th century Petite Trianon of Marie-Antoinette, Dior brings us the Trianon Collection for Spring 2014.

She is fascinating… possessing a porcelain complexion. And on her cheeks, a burst of blush catches the light, proclaiming the radiance of her face. For Spring 2014, pop shades are refreshed by the delicacy of porcelain whites and powdery pastels for a fresh, edgy look.

 

Rosy cheeks are sculpted with panache with Diorblush Trianon Edition in Corail Bagatelle (763), a beautiful and universally flattering coral shade. Limited edition, $44 Cdn.

Dior_Spring2014_DiorblushTrianonCorail Bagatelle

Eye shadows are matte with a dense finish. The new Diorshow Fusion Mono Matte blends into the skin for seamless application, leaving an ultra-matte finish. Subtly powdery and graced with monochromatic intensity, eyes defy fashion in beige (Songe), pink (Fantaisie), chocolate (Mirage), mauve (CĂ©leste – limited edition), and black (Nocturne), with two finishes:
Blend in with fingertips for soft fusion, or apply using the included brush applicator for intense fusion, a more extreme pigmented look. Available mid-January, $32 Cdn.

Dior_Spring2014_FusionMonoMatteMirage (761) (L) and Celeste (121) (R)

 

Blend a halo of colour around the eye. Bet on monochrome or play with clashing harmonies. Blend sugared-almond pink, baby blue and golden pale yellow… be audacious. Adorned with the emblematic bow, a beaded ribbon and the Dior signature, the spring, limited edition of the 5 Couleur palette take a delightful dive into the world of the Petit Trianon. This gorgeous retro palette, almost too pretty to use!, will be available in limited release, $62 Cdn.

Dior_Spring2014_5Couleurs_TrianonPastel Fontanges (234)

Radiant and resolutely contemporary with blushing cheeks and pastel eyelids, Rouge Dior in coral, Rose Crinoline and pure fuchsia, Allégresse, play up the curves of femininity with bold lips. Both limited edition, $36 Cdn.

Dior_Spring2014_RougeDiorRose Crinoline (531) (front) and Allégresse (774) (back right)

The concentrated shine of Dior Addict Gloss is decorated in pastel shades of PĂ©tillante peach and Exquise pink. A concentrate of sweetness gives the face an angelic aura in tonal complement to the season’s Rouge Dior shades. Limited edition, $31 Cdn.

A play on texture inspired by the porcelain and china of the 18th century, the Dior Vernis Trianon Edition nail lacquer looks matte on application before revealing a completely new pearl-frost effect. Out in the garden, Dior explores the seasonal floral hues of cornflower in Porcelaine, soft peach (Bouquet), and pure fuchsia (Bloom). All limited edition, $26 Cdn.

Dior_Spring2014_DiorVernis

 

Here is a first look at Dior Vernis in Porcelaine, with two coats applied:

Dior_Vernis S14 Porcelaine1

 

It is truly a gorgeous cornflower blue. I added a touch of Dior Vernis in Perle to the ring finger. Look at the gorgeous matte, pearlized finish:

Dior_Vernis S14 Porcelaine Perle2

And with top coat, Perle is lit from within, evoking a shiny and soft iridescence:

Dior_Vernis S14 Porcelaine PerleI cannot wait to try Perle over Bloom or dark, vampy shades!

 

All Dior Trianon makeup will be available mid-January.

 

In addition to the limited edition makeup, Dior releases four new additions to their Extreme Backstage professional line-up. The new Pore Minimizer is a perfecting, matifying base that diminishes pores and creates a matte effect upon application, refining skin texture and smoothing fine lines. Its filler spheres combined with soft-focus pigments even out the complexion and erase imperfections invisibly and weightlessly, leading to perfect-looking skin even in close-up.

Tips: Apply all over to hydrated skin, starting at centre of face and blending outwards and upwards with fingertips. Pore Minimizer can be used alone or under foundation for optimal application and hold.
Touch up during the day to matify and diminish pores by patting gently onto required areas then blending with fingertips.

Glow Maximizer radiance booster provides skin an infusion of light without shine or iridescence. Inspired by studio reflectors, its imperceptible texture contains microscopic mirrors to instantly illuminate the face, sculpting features and correcting colour imperfections. Dark shadows fade, and the complexion looks as radiant as under studio lighting.

Tips: As a booster: mix a pea-sized quantity with foundation and apply a light layer to well-hydrated skin, blending outwards and upwards.
To sculpt the face: pat gently over makeup onto the desired light-catching areas such as the forehead, bridge of nose, brow bone and cheekbones.

Both Dior Pore Minimizer and Glow Maximizer will be available at Sephora January 17th, everywhere on January 30th, 2014. $42 Cdn each.

Dior_Spring2014_PoreMin_GlowMax

For the eyes, Dior makes professional perfection accessible to every woman with the introduction of its new eye primer Backstage Eye Prime. Its secret is a weightless volatile oil that once applied, evaporates to fix the makeup. Using pigments from foundation technologies, the eye primer unifies and corrects the lid complexion for a perfect eye makeup base. Throughout the day, the primer prevents eyeshadow from creasing, keeping colour even and true all day long. Dior Backstage Eye Prime will be available at Sephora January 17th, everywhere on January 30th, 2014. $30 Cdn each.

This was the first of the new products I had to test, and I must say, I am impressed. Eye Prime applies like a concealer-type cream, immediately drying to a powder-like finish. I have tried wearing it as a base to powder eye shadow as well as smudged kohl-type liner/shadows, and true to its promise, no creasing and no wearing off of my eye makeup. There are very few eye primers that have held up to my standards – in fact, I have relied on only one product thus far – but Dior’s eye primer is truly ‘backstage’ material.

Dior_Spring2014_EyePrime

Finally, Dior introduces a new variation of its iconic Lip Glow: a coral edition! An exclusive for the Trianon collection, the universal lip balm imprints a flash of sunlight on your lips, heightening their natural colour. $35 Cdn, available mid-January.

Launched recently as part of OPI’s Holiday offerings, the limited edition Mariah Carey Holiday collection is as extensive as they come – 18 new shades in all! The selection includes 6 new Liquid Sand shades, and today I bring you a few of these beauties.

OPI_MC_HolidayBtls1OPI_MC_HolidayBtls2

All I Want for Christmas (is OPI) is a slightly deepened cool red, the epitome of Christmas, with a gorgeous formula that applies like a dream! This was so highly concentrated, it could easily have been a one-coater. And the shine! Here are two coats over base coat, with top coat:

OPI_MC_All I Want for Christmas

You may recall how I love playing with textured Liquid Sand polishes, and decided to top All I Want with a French tip of Baby Please Come Home, a beautiful pale lilac textured polish with almost a foil finish. I don’t know what made me pair a lilac with red, perhaps the cool undertones, but I loved this combination! (Skip the top coat to maintain the textured finish!)

OPI_MC_AllIWant_BabyPlsComeHome

Another favourite of mine from this collection was Underneath the Mistletoe, a deep yet vibrant red jelly, packed with red and silver micro glitter. I absolutely adore a beautiful jelly shade, and Underneath looks like it glows from within. The formula was not great on this one – the jelly dragged and created bald spots, so needs a quick and careful first coat, but it covers beautifully on the second coat. The downside is that this was a top coat-eater – it dries to a bit of a dull finish, and needed two coats of top coats for that squishy jelly finish I love. Totally worth it in my opinion!  And removal? Easy! I was prepared for a glittery painstaking removal, but the jelly melted off and took the glitter with it! Here are two coats over base, with two thick coats of top coat:

OPI_MC_Underneaththe Mistletoe

Another shade that will probably sell out (if it has not already), Warm Me Up, oh-so-reminiscent of OPI’s elusive My Private Jet… a gorgeous metallic, burnished, browney-grey shade that is so hard to describe, and so beautiful to look at. Desribed as a “spiced coffee” by OPI, that’s probably the best way to describe this complex shimmery shade. Application was dreamy: it applied like a cream with amazing coverage, drying to a streak-free high shine. Two coats over base:

OPI_MC_Warm Me Up

I topped Warm Me Up with a French tip of Silent Stars Go By, a pale peach Liquid Sand textured polish with sparkly pieces of glitter. I fell in love with this shade from the bottle shots and cannot wait to wear it on its own! Talk about a sparkly neutral!

OPI_MC_Warm_SilentStars_Frnch

I feel like I am calling every polish in this collection “a favourite,” and All Sparkly and Gold is another hit: a sheer base jam-packed with ultrafine gold glitter, this one is like the golden sister to Underneath the Mistletoe. A warm polish that can be worn as a topper like I have over All I Want for Christmas (is OPI) below (if applied very sparingly), or worn full-strength by itself to reach opacity in 2 generous or 3 thin coats. Absolutely Christmas/holiday-appropriate and gorgeous! I applied 2 coats below except middle finger, where I used one thin coat over red, topped with top coat:

OPI_MC_AllSparklyandGold

And last but not least for today, the ultimate standout for me (I know, I know, I love them all!) that I knew I had to purchase the moment I saw it, Ski Slope Sweetie, a golden sheer off-white with a pearl finish. This complex polish captures such a range of colours, flashing gold to pink to yellow, and looks like a glass fleck, foil finish. Easily worn on its own with 2 or 3 coats, or an amazing polish to layer, I applied one coat over My Vampire is Buff on my ring finger below, and 2 coats on all other nails plus top coat:

OPI_MC_SkiSlopeSweetieHow insanely beautiful does it look layered over MVIB?

 

I read a couple of mixed reviews about Mariah Carey’s Holiday Collection, which I cannot understand as I find this large collection has something for everyone. Ranging from reds to glitters to neutrals, I feel like I need every single polish.  And though at first I was unsure about wearing textured polishes, the Liquid Sands have grown on me and I absolutely love them now. They have evolved since their first offering with Mariah Carey’s debut OPI collection, and have become even more fantastic: less gritty, finer texture with phenomenal colour selections.

I’m off to find My Favourite Ornament, the champagne sister of All Sparkly and Gold… and I suggest you run to get your hands on this limited edition collection, too!

(Some product provided for consideration and review. All opinions are my own.)

When I expressed interest in writing another guest post for The Obsessed, I was overwhelmed with the selection Aire provided to me! While difficult (insert dramatic sigh here), I finally selected 3 of the gorgeous limited edition “Revlon by Marchesa Nail Art 3D Jewel AppliquĂ©s.” Talk about a fashion collaboration made in heaven! The nail art was inspired by Marchesa’s signature couture gowns and each kit comes complete with 18 nail appliquĂ©s, mini file, buffer and cuticle stick.

Revlon_Marchesa_GildenMosaic_boxRevlon by Marchesa 3D Jewel Appliqué Box

 

I decided to start with “24K Brocade.” This gorgeous turquoise base with stunning gold brocade detail has injected a bit of summer back into my life! The pattern has a slightly exotic, glamorous Bollywood feel to it. And the best part – the application was absolutely simple and foolproof. Between putting my little one to bed for nap time then serving his older brother a snack, I knew I had maybe 20 minutes to get these babies on! And thankfully 20 minutes was more than enough!

I started with clean, bare, dry nails and quickly pushed back my cuticles. I then lined up each finger nail underneath the clear appliquĂ© strip to best match the size. One by one, I placed an appliquĂ© on each nail and tautly pulled and folded the appliquĂ© over the tip. Using the mini file, I gently filed down over the nail tip until the excess appliquĂ© separated from my nail. Only one nail was not to my satisfaction so I followed the box’s removal instructions, pulled from the cuticle up and voila! The appliquĂ© was removed with no remaining glue or residue.

Revlon_Marchesa_24kBrocade24k Brocade – daylight

Revlon_Marchesa_24kBrocade224k Brocade – shade

How spectacular is the contrast between the turquoise base and the metallic gold?

I kept “24K Brocade” on for 3 days, looking for any excuse to remove it for the next set…
When I noticed the slightest tip wear on one nail, I decided it was time to try “Gilded Mosaic!” (Note: these would absolutely last longer than 3 days – I was simply too excited to try the others!)

Once again following the box’s removal instructions, I removed each appliquĂ© by gently lifting from the cuticle and pulling forward and up. There was a small amount of residue on a couple of my nails so I simply wiped each nail with polish remover for a clean, fresh canvas.

“Gilded Mosaic” looks just like it sounds – almost like a beautifully jeweled (faux) snakeskin in gold, silver and hints of black. Based on feedback around my office, this one was the fan favourite. It added sophistication to every outfit and was the perfect accessory!

Revlon_Marchesa_GildenMosaicGilden Mosaic

I tested my patience by keeping this one on for 5 days before moving on to the last (and my personal favourite) “Crown Jewels.” I contemplated using a deep black or blue base colour but decided to go bare. “Crown Jewels” was an effortlessly chic update to the standard French manicure. The appliquĂ© tips varied slightly in design, which made each nail unique. I actually trimmed a bit of the clear base toward the cuticle so I could have more of the gold tip on each nail. I love the way this looked on my bare nails and will definitely be purchasing a few of this design to try over polish!

Revlon_Marchesa_CrownJewelsCrown Jewels

 

This is a super fun, easy and quick way to achieve a professional salon look without the salon price tag. Not to mention, Marchesa – need I say more?

Revlon by Marchesa Nail Art 3D Jewel Appliqués are available in limited release in drugstores throughout fall 2013,  in eight beautiful designs. For more information, head to Revlon.com, or become a Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram fan!

Launched last month just in advance of the Miss Universe competition, this very limited edition trio of shades includes the dusky purple I’m Feeling Sashy, the vampy blackened plum Miss You-niverse, and the textured matte platinum This Gown Needs a Crown with a satin finish. The three shades were inspired by the women of Miss Universe, embodying glamour and the ultimate prize of the coveted crown. Highly wearable and gorgeous, this mini-collection is… dare I say it? Perfection.

Judge for yourself!

I’m Feeling Sashy is a medium-toned dusty purple creme. The formula was amazing. And the shine!! Here are two coats in sunlight (pre-top coat!):

OPI_MU_ImFeelingSashy2

in the shade it looks more like a dusty lilac:

OPI_MU_ImFeelingSashy1

Miss You-niverse is a blackened plum creme, and it is very dark – right up my alley! I love how vampy this shade is, but it has enough colour to not look black in daylight. This was an even nicer formula than I’m Feeling Sashy – definitely a one-coater if you’re quick, but I applied two coats. And no staining upon removal! Again, the pictures are pre-top coat in sunlight:

OPI_MU_MissYou-niverseSeriously, how gorgeous is that?? (I’ve already worn it twice!)

I love it with a French tip of This Gown Needs a Crown:

OPI_MU_MissYou-niverse_Frn

 

Lastly, This Gown Needs a Crown is a textured matte platinum that is not quite as textured as the OPI Liquid Sands. It’s actually quite smooth to the touch so if you are not a fan of textured polishes, this is a great option for you! And I absolutely LOVE this polish! The colour, the finish, the sparkle…  It’s easily one of the nicest silvers I’ve ever used. And it provides great opacity at two coats. OPI recommends wearing it without top coat to maintain its finish, so here are two coats on their own:

OPI_MU_ThisGownHow cute is the crown charm on this polish bottle?

And a macro shot to show you the holographic sparkle:

OPI_MU_ThisGown_Macro

 

These shades are now available at Professional Salons and Spas. For more information, please call 800-341-9999 or visit www.opi.com. Follow OPI on Twitter @OPI_PRODUCTS and become a Facebook fan!

So…? Do you agree – are they not perfection? Which one is your favourite, and do you have any of these yet?

Happy almost-Halloween!

You may have seen the press release for OPI’s Rock Goddess mini-pack (see it here), and I thought today would be a great time to bring you the polishes!

This limited-edition mini pack includes four mini lacquers in orange, neon green, yellow and shimmery gunmetal, along with a black, adjustable woven bracelet featuring a gleaming skull charm. (If you’ve ever seen or owned OPI mini polishes, you know just how adorable they are!)

OPI_RockGoddess

Yellopalooza is a gorgeous bright yellow crelly, a cream-jelly hybrid formula. This polish is a bit streaky as it leans a little thin, so I applied three coats. The shine is gorgeous!

OPI_RockGds_Yellopalooza
Stand in Lime for Days is a beautiful bright green with a similar formula as Yellopalooza. I applied three coats for this one as well:

OPI_RockGds_StandinLimeforDays

The third creme/crelly of the set is The Drummer is Hot, a beautiful bright, but not quite neon, orange, and probably my favourite of the bunch. I decided to play with it a little and apply is as a French tip to Yellopalooza. I love the combination!

OPI_RockGds_Yellopalooza_DrummerIsHot

Finally, Rolling Bones is the only non-creme in this mini-pack; a gunmetal shimmer with a metallic finish that immediately made me think of a gorgeous metallic OPI from the 007 Skyfall collection, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. The only obvious difference seems to be that Rolling Bones leans more green, while Secret Service is cooler, more blue-based. Rolling Bones looks like it has the same multi-hued tiny shimmer, and it truly is a gorgeous, complex polish:

OPI_RockGds_RollingBones

You can also see the skull charm on the woven bracelet in the photo above.

 

Rock Goddess is still available wherever OPI is sold, so hurry and get yours before they are gone!

OPI Partners with Music and Fashion Icon
Gwen Stefani to Launch Limited Edition Nail
Lacquers, Featuring Breakthrough Finishes

OPI joins celebrity partner Gwen Stefani in announcing seven new limited edition nail lacquers for 2014, featuring standout color in breakthrough finishes. Highlights from the collection include a bold red lacquer that pays homage to Gwen’s signature lipstick, a new semi-matte satin finish in shades of gold and black, and a mirrored chrome paired with a special base coat.

Inspired by the 2013 Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala that featured the theme “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” OPI Executive VP and Artistic Director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann decided to create a collection of lacquer celebrating the role of music as a major influence in fashion. “With her expertise as a singer, songwriter and designer, who better to collaborate with than Gwen Stefani?” asks Weiss-Fischmann. “Known for her trademark red lips, bold eye makeup and nail art, Gwen uses beauty to accessorize her style.”

Gwen-Stefani_OPI-launch

Gwen’s signature red OPI hue – Over & Over A-Gwen – is available in a boxed set, which includes Swarovski black crystals and silver, gold and pewter studs in bar, square, diamond and circle shapes for creating unique nail designs, as well as nail glue for easy application. Love.Angel.Music.Baby. and 4 in the Morning feature a new, semi-matte satin finish designed to be worn without top coat. Push and Shove, a bold chrome hue, is also worn without top coat but requires a special complimentary base coat – Lay Down that Base. One thin coat of Lay Down that Base topped with two thin coats of Push and Shove yields an intense, mirrored finish. The collection is rounded out with two glossy crème lacquers and one sparkly glitter shade: Hey Baby, I Sing in Color, and In True Stefani Fashion.

“OPI wanted to create a collection as dramatic, diverse and glamorous as its namesake,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “With crème and glitter hues, new satin matte texture, a mirrored chrome and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, Gwen Stefani by OPI presents the latest in pigments and finishes, while combining elements of haute couture and street fashion.”

Gwen Stefani by OPI includes the following seven limited edition nail lacquers: Hey Baby, I Sing in Color, Love.Angel.Music.Baby., 4 in the Morning, In True Stefani Fashion, Push and Shove* and Over & Over A-Gwen**. Gwen Stefani by OPI nail lacquers contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and
