Isn’t Blop the best name for nail polish ever? Dior has the whole aquatic, swimming pool hue thing nailed with their Summer 2018 collection, Cool Wave. I’ve been sent a few key pieces but there is another eye palette (Heat Up) that’s more bronze toned and much easier to wear. If you’re feeling experimental, Pixiwoo You Tube has plenty of blue shadow tutorials to steer you in the right direction.
Cool Down (above) is five shades of blue veering from silver to the brightest turquoise. All but the middle shade are shimmery.
The most interesting things, I think, are the Cooling Sticks – waterproof, wet-effect eye colours that leave a light sheen across the lid. I’ve not worn them long enough to know how well they fare for longevity but I’m happier with this Bronze shade than the blues! It comes in three colours – Bronze Wave (above), Gold Splash and Fresh Pink.
I have two of the Dior Addict Lipsticks for the summer collection: Nude Chill and Pink Drop. They’re a juicy consistency giving off plenty of shine and these particular shades are milky in the finish.
The blue gloss is a Lip Maximizer in Pool Blue, containing mint and plumpers – a refresh on a hot day! It’s so light in colour that the minimal blue hint is a bit lost to be honest.
This is the Cool Down palette swatched, followed by the Bronze Cooling Stick and the Lip Maximizer.
And, finally the lip colours: Nude Chill and Pink Drop. So, that’s it. Has Cool Wave got you thinking of pools and bikinis or are you wondering how the heck to do the blue?! The collection is HERE.
