Diorsnow Spring 2017 Collection Le Vernis Spring Bud & Lilas

March 20, 2017

It has been an incredibly long time since I last picked up some Dior Le Vernis, but I was captivated by Lilas from the new Diorsnow Spring 2017 Collection, and whilst I was at the counter, I decided to pick up its companion Spring Bud as well.  I am glad I got both of them, because they turned out to be so much prettier in real life than those sneak images!

Dior Le Vernis Spring Bud (100) is a pale minty green that has a cool base.  It is one of those creams that Dior does exceptionally well, but sprinkled with a multitude of micro shimmers.  I see purple, green, and gold; but they are so fine they are mostly hidden except under sunlight.

Dior Le Vernis Lilas (180) is a pale lavender that has a slight grey-cast to it.  Similar to Spring Bud, Lilas is a cream finish with lots of hidden micro-shimmers in it.  These are mostly violet and green, and are not easily visible except under bright lights.

As with most Dior Le Vernis, I found both Spring Bud and Lilas to be incredibly easy to apply, especially with the flattened wide brush.  They dry almost instantaneously, and are fully opaque and streak-free with 2 coats.  I get decent longevity with these, averaging about 3 days before seeing signs of tip-wear.

The Diorsnow collection is exclusive to Asia, but I’m always happy to help – just give me a shout.  Out in counters already – have you seen them?  Happy #maniMonday!
