For a Bright Pop of Green with Some Glitz & Glam, Dive into Dior Aqua Green Diorshow Liner Waterproof!

Dior Aqua Green liner FOTD

I don’t know about you, but to me summer means less makeup. I want a multifunctional base with enough SPF, a light wash of color on my lids, and let’s forget about heavy-looking eyeliner (even though it’s my go-to)! It’s time to switch things up and add a fun pop of color instead! If that’s what you’re after, take a look at Dior‘s glitzy green offer this summer, Aqua Green Diorshow Liner Waterproof (348. RRP in Belgium: 24,93 euros. Availability: April 17th)!

Dior Aqua Green Diorshow Liner

Dior Diorshow Liner Waterproof comes in sleek silver packaging, and it contains 0.3 grams (0.01 oz). The cap snaps shut with a click, so you can be sure it won’t accidentally fall off in your makeup bag!

Diorshow liner sharpener

The liner works with a twist-up mechanism, but if you ever want to sharpen it for a more precise line, simply remove the end of the pencil! Since the texture of the pencil is not extremely soft and smudgy however, you won’t have to do it often. Also, you don’t waste a lot of product at all during the process.

Dior Aqua Green 348 Diorshow Liner

Dior Aqua Green Diorshow Liner is a bright aqua green with a strong frosty finish and multi-chrome sparkle (I see blue, gold, silver…). If you have a soft, creamy, and opaque with one-pass kind of liner in mind, you might want to skip Aqua Green. Diorshow Liner Waterproof has a harder texture (think Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof), and Aqua Green is not opaque with one pass. Nevertheless, it can be built up with a couple of extra passes to look very vibrant. Another trade-off is once it’s on, it won’t go anywhere until you are ready to remove it!

Normally even if a pencil liner performs well, it still smudges a little on the outer corners after 8-9 hours. Diorshow Liner Waterproofs however, can stay on for as long as I want (well past 10 hours)! Even without a primer they have amazing lasting power on me, and because of that I’m willing to cut the harder texture some slack.

Here is how Aqua Green swatches on me. Left: one pass. Right: built up

Dior Aqua Green liner swatch

For the look, I used Dior Golden Sand 1 Couleur Eye Gloss all over my lids, Dior Aqua Green Diorshow Liner Waterproof on my lower lash line, and Dior Passionnée Addict Lipstick on my lips. The color most probably looks darker because I lined my waterline as well. In real life, it is as bright and fresh-looking as what you see in the swatch!

Bottom line: While I wish Dior Aqua Green Diorshow Liner Waterproof could be opaque in one go, I feel a bit of building-up and the harder texture are a fair exchange for the amazing wear time! Aqua Green is a fun pop of green with a lot of glitz and glam, and I think it’s a great way to give a simple eye look a lot of personality!

Have you tried a Diorshow Liner Waterproof? Does it last well on you? Do you also own a bunch of fun pencil liners for your lower lash line?

    I don’t wear colour liner that often, but the wear on this sounds soooo good. I’ve never had a liner not smudge on me after at most 3 hours =(

    • Sunny

      Aww I’m so sorry to hear that! Most butter pencil liners can last on me for 8-9 hours, but the harder ones usually fare even better.

  • http://www.bellachique.be Teri

    It slightly reminds me of the pencil of last year, no? I think this one is a bit lighter? Anyway, I love the colour, I love the whole colour scheme of the summer collection! Looking really lovely too!

    • Sunny

      Hey Teri, they’re actually very different! Turquoise is more blue and has a more more matte finish. This one is more green and glitzy all the way!

  • http://papayapieces.wordpress.com/2013/04/04/hot-ginger-honey-and-lemon-infusion/ Sofia

    Sunny you look fabulous with make up look! And the pencil is such a fun colour!

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Sofia!!! You’re too sweet!

  • http://www.perilouslypale.com Perilously Pale

    Such a pretty colour. I love the look you did!

    • Sunny

      Thanks, Christa! It’s definitely lighter than what I’d wear in autumn/winter :)

  • http://www.peggytimmermans.be/blog peggy timmermans

    Well i for sure like it very much! I think it’s the perfect summer colour..now we only have to wait for it to come…..

    • Sunny

      Haha yeah THAT is the tricky part here ;)

  • http://www.unprofessionalbeautyblog.com Angela @ The Unprofessional Beauty Blog

    I don’t own that many color liners, but this sounds just like what I need for the upcoming Summer months since I do want something that lasts long on my eyes.

    • Sunny

      Hey Angela, I hope it will last just as well on you! I’ve tested it without a primer and still it doesn’t go anywhere!

  • http://miaka-mylife.blogspot.com/ Ruby

    How does this compare to Chanel Stylo Yuex?

    • Sunny

      Hey Ruby, I would say that texture and lasting power-wise, the two formulas perform equally well on me. Aqua Green is a bit shorter on pigmentation, but it can be built up easily!

  • http://myfashiontrendencies@hotmail.com Chris

    What’re you wearing on your lips Sunny?!?!

    • Sunny

      Hey Chris, it’s Dior Passionnee Addict Lipstick! The review will be up next week!

  • http://memoiselle.com/ Meryl @ Memoiselle

    Hi SUnny,
    I might be out of topic but your pink lips attracts my attention a lot!! I love love your pink lips, it looks cute and gorgeous on you! :D

    I have one Dior eyeliner and I am very disappointed with it. The pigmentation is poor, not buttery at all and it smudges. I think I will never try any new Dior eyeliner in the future unless I have read tremendous number of good reviews about it.

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Meryl! It’s Dior Passionnee (review coming up next week)!

      Aww I’m so sorry to hear about the smudging! It’s a little surprising though, because it’s one of the rare formulas that do not smudge on me in any case!

  • http://redhotjillypeppers.com Redhotjillypeppers

    Looks like a fun colour to wear during summer ! I love colours like these on brown eyes.

    • Sunny

      Yup I agree! I think brown-eyed girls have it easy. I can’t think of anything that really clashes with brown eyes!

  • http://www.valleydollbeautyblog.blogspot.com ValleyDoll

    The liner looks great on you ! It’s the perfect summer shade !

    • Sunny

      Thanks Eva! I actually think everyone can rock this as long as they want to!

  • http://www.cuteandmundane.com Dovey

    Hi Sunny,

    Dior Aqua Green looks like a perfect summer color — it reminds me of a lush waterscape!

    • Sunny

      Hey Dovey, you’re right! All that sparkle is very pretty close-up as well!

  • http://wade-ashore.blogspot.com Caise

    what a beautiful shade! it seems like a perfect liner for summer:)

    • Sunny

      It is! It’s such a fresh color!

  • http://mylucitedreams.com Taylor

    It’s very pretty. I can appreciate the snap lid! I think we need to see more of this on lip and eye liners!

    • Sunny

      True! I don’t usually carry my eyeliners in my purse, but for traveling it’s just so good to know I won’t open my makeup bag to see my liners have smudged all over the place!

  • http://makeupmorsels.wordpress.com Makeup Morsels

    I lovee the packaging on these Dior liners, it’s just so shiny hahaha I’m easily swayed. The color is very pretty too, I love how it looks on your lower lashline.

    • Sunny

      Haha I know what you mean! It actually has some “heft” too now come to think of it. This is something I’d use on my lower lash line, or as a double liner on my upper lash line!

  • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com Catherine (@bcrueltyfree)

    I think this is a lovely shade and I like the way you wore it. It’s fun and really a perfect pop of color for summer.

    • Sunny

      Thanks Catherine! It is for sure a lot of fun, even though it requires a little more work. I can personally cut it some slack because once it’s on it’s on for good!

  • http://www.beauty-reflections.com Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    NEED!! This is greener than last years! Love it on you!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Tracy! Last year it was more a bluish turquoise, so the two are significantly different ;)

      • Icedcaramellatte

        I was just about to ask you this. In many pics, it looks the same as Turquoise. So this one is more green?

        • Sunny

          Hey there, it certainly is more green! I wouldn’t call it a turquoise at all! Hope this helps :)

  • http://eyeheartit.blogspot.com Larie

    It’s pretty, but I don’t think it would last on me. think I like last year’s matte turquoise better – I still regret not picking that one up :(

    • Sunny

      Aww so sorry to hear that, Larie :( Have you been on the hunt for something similar?

  • http://lipstickrouge.blogspot.it/ andrea

    I love this color *_* really pretty!!!

    Dear, I follow you by Italy!!!!!!!!!! *_*

    Kisses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Andrea!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Andrea! Make sure you check the collection out when it’s available. I’m getting really excited about summer!

    this looks great on you! I have a similar color from a chanel collection years ago. i don’t wear colored liner anymore (unless it is like close to black lol or some variation on taupe) but you’re making me want to! Lol

    • Sunny

      Hey Joyce, I wear colored liner all the time and have a nice little collection. I love my neutrals, but a slick of color is always welcome :)

    I saw this today at Dior counter, it’s gorgeous ans the swatch I made is still there! I’m still deciding if I get this or the mint Nars eyeliner, do you own Nars?

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey girl, sorry but I don’t own the NARS one! They’re significantly different though. I don’t think you can line your lash line with the NARS one, since it’s pretty pale!
