Dior Summer 2017: Care & Dare Collection + Lip Tattoos

I feel like 2017 is Dior’s year.

Or, maybe, more accurately, it’s the year I’ve finally taken notice of Dior.

I mean, I did use and love a few of their products in the past, but never really felt the need to stalk their website for new launches, if you know what I’m saying.

That, I reserved for Chanel.

But then, the Spring 2017 Colour Gradation Collection rekindled my love for the brand and left me wanting more…

…And more did I get in the form of the Dior Care & Dare 2017 Summer Collection.

Some of the new Dior launches for summer 2017. Clockwise from top left corner: 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 557 Focus, Dior Addict Lip Tattoo in 451 Natural Coral, Diorskin Nude Air Care & Dare in 003 Bronze Tan, Dior Vernis Long Wear Nail Lacquer in 002 Optic White, Dior Addict Lip Tattoo in 761 Natural Cherry

Let’s see what we got here!

Dior Diorskin Nude Air Care & Dare in 003 Bronze Tan ($56)

The Diorskin Nude Air Care & Dare magnetic silver case exudes elegance and luxury. The compact comes with a nice kabuki brush

Would it really be a summer collection if it didn’t include a bronzer?

I guess not.

The Diorskin Nude Air Care & Dare, Dior’s limited edition bronzer for summer 2017, fuses perfectly with the skin and is very easy to blend. The powder is mostly matte, but the white letters infuse it with a very (very!) subtle sheen.

003 Bronze Tan is the darker one out of the two available shades, but I find it wearable on me even when I don’t use my beloved Clarins Liquid Bronze Self-Tanning Lotion (for reference, I do have a fake tan in today’s pictures).

Even though my bronzer collection could probably be passed on to my great-grandchildren, the Diorskin Nude Air Care & Dare is a very welcome addition.

My Dior Summer 2017 makeup look. I’m wearing the 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette on the eyes, the Diorskin Nude Air Care & Dare on my complexion and the Dior Addict Lip Tattoo in 451 Natural Coral on my lips

The Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 557 Focus features four neutrals plus a yellow that keeps things interesting and fun. I really like using it in the inner corner for an unexpected pop of subtle color that has an incredible brightening effect.

The shadows have a beautiful satin finish and are extremely easy to blend, so if you feel like splurging on this little quint, you won’t be disappointed.

Dior Vernis Long Wear Nail Lacquer in 002 Optic White ($27)

On my nails I’m wearing two coats of the Dior Vernis in 002 Optic White

I really wanted to get a white nail polish for summer and Dior has granted my wish by including one in their Care & Dare collection.

The Dior Vernis Nail Lacquer in 002 Optic White is perfectly opaque in two coats and, thanks to its not-too-fluid formula and wide brush, application is a breeze!

It’s my first Dior nail polish and now I definitely want to try more.

Dior Addict Lip Tattoo in 451 Natural Coral Tint & 761 Natural Cherry Tint ($30)

Alongside the Care & Dare collection, Dior has released five new liquid lipsticks called Dior Addict Lip Tattoos.

Let’s cut to the chase… The formula is FAB.

Super, super comfortable and not in the least drying, but still very long-lasting on me. Plus, it has the same delicious vanilla-mint scent of the awesome Dior Addict Lip Glow in Berry, which is a really nice bonus.

The Lip Tattoos are a little shiny upon application, but then dry down to a luminous matte finish (they have a very subtle sheen). If you’re looking for a sophisticated liquid lipstick formula, I highly recommend you check these out.


So, the Care & Dare 2017 Summer Collection is another big Dior hit for me and now I’m really curious to see what they will come up with for the fall – which means this year I’ll have at least one thing to look forward to regarding the fall.

    The yellow in the inner corner really is surprisingly brightening, I need to try that.
    And Dior… I Rarely use anything of the brand. Or from Chanel, to be fair. But Chanel ist starting to grow on me through the ads they do, Dior is just… I don´t know how to put this, uninspiring?

      Really? I love this year’s ads from Dior! Maybe it’s not always wearable looks, but I find them very beautiful and inspiring nonetheless.
      As for Chanel… Well, Chanel is Chanel! ❤️

    Le tinte labbra sono meravigliose, Carolina!!! Natural Coral è la tonalità che mi piace di più.
    E’ una bella collezione, tutto tranne lo smalto, ma è una questione personale tra me e gli smalti bianchi. haha

    I definitely feel like 2017 is Dior’s year as well: unlike most French Couture House makeup and skincare brands, they’ve understood how the new beauty industry works and their releases are always the perfect combination of trends and elegant, timeless hints! The Dior nail polishes are my all time favourites, the shade selection is gorgeous, the brush is very easy to use and the formula is just perfection! Lovely post 🙂

    I was at lost on how would one wear that bright hello and then I saw you using it on the inner corner of your eyes and it’s beautiful!

    I agree with you that Dior has started giving us some interesting products but I found this collection to be just ok, excluding the serum highlighter, the Dior Addict lippies and the white nail polish which I’ve been loving. I skipped all Eye products though, somehow they didn’t speak to me or I thought of similar ones that I already have. Xx

    Lo smalto color ghiaccio è il mio preferito! Piuttosto, hai provato il mascara che si schiaccia in fondo di Dior? Mi sembra si chiami Pump’N’Volume ma forse mi sbaglio 🙂

    I don’t know what’s going on with Dior here but there releases are all over the place. The Spring collection never made it to department stores. I was anxiously waiting for the eyeshadow palettes to arrive at Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus, and they never did. The only products that seem to be released quickly are the lipsticks. I hope their whole summer collection comes to department stores this time! I’ve ordered one of the lip tattoos but I’m also intrigued by the new eye palettes.

      That’s such a pity about the Spring collection, I think it was gorgeous! I hope you’ll get at least the summer one!

    Dior is such a classy brand and I’m certainly a fan also. This eyeshadow palette looks great, and the yellow shade is fantastic, an alternative to a gold shade.

    The lip tattoo looks great on you.

    Also excited to see what Dior launch for Fall, always a fan of their unique warm collections during Winter.
