My Dior Story with a happy end

Today I want to share with you my very positive experience with Dior I've had recently. Let's start with a purchase of my long time wanted Dior perfume - Miss Dior Chérie. Every time I went around the Dior counter I sprayed it on my wrist and loved it. As my birthday was coming closer I knew what present I was getting - my husband bought it for me at the Duty-free shop. I wore it couple of times and realized that it smells somehow different than the one I tried so many times in the shop. The fact it didn't last long enough on my skin was also a big disappointment. Normally when you wear a new perfume you can smell it constantly on your skin for the first few days - but Chérie wasn't the case. Then I've googled it and found out that Dior changed a formula of this perfume and I'd got this new edition.

I've contacted the Dior customer services and explained what the problem was and that I'm not happy with my new Chérie at all :( They have kindly offered me that I can send the perfume back to their main office in France (for examination) and choose another product in the same value. I got sooo excited...... but I didn't want to get a perfume again so I went for 5 Couleurs and Poudre Shimmer (even though I really wanted Diorskin Nude Glow, but unfortunately it was unavailable).
I was dealing with lovely ladies (Stéphanie, Nadjaah, Aliya) who ensured the parcel was delivered to me even after two unsuccessful attempts. I'm very pleased with the customer service I received from them!

Ok that's enough of writing, let's have a look at the products:

I've picked the eyeshadows - 5 Couleurs in 754 Rose Tan and highlighter Poudre Shimmer in 002 Amber Diamond

Both products are amazing quality and I feel so special when using them because even the packaging on it's own is very pretty.

The colours in the eyeshadow palette are great for creating nude, everyday eyes. I like to apply the colour in the middle to my inner corner (I'll do a FOTD post using this lovely palette soon.)

There are already too many reviews on the Poudre Shimmer highlighter, but anyway I still want to mention that this product is sooooo great... you have to try yourself to understand what I mean :) It gives just the perfect glow to your cheekbones - bright but not too glittery.

Nubar - Raspberry Truffle

First of all I'd like to wish you all my dear readers a very Happy New Year!

Let's start my first post in 2012 with a resolution that I will try to post at least once a week from now on :) I've collated quite a lot of material and pictures, but didn't really get a chance to post them.

Today I want to show you a beautiful nail polish from Nubar - Raspberry Truffle. To be honest, I wanted to get OPI - Tease-y Does It! initially, but then I've read that Raspberry Truffle is a great dupe for Tease-y Does It! and as I wanted to save some money I went for the cheaper option ;) I love this colour, it's perfect for winter, application was very smooth and it's pretty opaque.
Please excuse my nails as I was letting my nails grow out from gel so it might be a bit visible that half of my nail is natural and half is gel.
At the moment I'm wearing very short nails as my gels already grew out completely. I can't wait until my natural nails will be stronger and grow nice and long again!
