All Aboard for Dior Transat Summer 2014!

Dior Transat summer 2014 swatches

All aboard, all aboard! All aboard for some Dior Transat Summer 2014 swatches! Set to launch on April 16th in Belgium, the conllection is inspired Mr. Dior’s belief that one should always travel with style. Let’s take a quick look at some of the pieces!

Dior Diorskin Nude Tan Transat Edition

I don’t think it is virtually possible to see a summer collection without a bronzer or two. Although in Dior Transat‘s case, the couple of items labeled as bronzers do not look like bronzers to me. Take *Diorskin Nude Tan 001 Transat Edition (RRP: 59,60 euros) for example: it is really a highlighter!

The rope pattern fits right into the theme. The powder itself is pretty, and pretty shimmery. A light hand is most probably needed!

Dior Diorskin Nude Shimmer 001 Rose

*Diorskin Nude Shimmer 001 Rose (RRP: 57 euros) is actually a blush! A darker shade called Ambre (002) is available as well.

Swirled together, it is a light berry pink (3rd stripe). If you can concentrate your brush on the shades separately, you will get a coral pink blush and an icy lavender highlighter.

There are two 5 Couleurs (Atlantique and Sundeck. RRP: 59,60 euros) and two Diorshow Mono Transat Editions (RRP: 35 euros) in the collection.

*Cabine (261) , a navy blue with a bit of a gunmetal gray sheen.

*Pavillon (541), a coral/rose gold.

In my excitement, I had forgotten these can be used wet and dry. I only swatched them dry, and both are nicely pigmented as well as creamy!

Worth noting: both the waterproof Diorshow Iconic Overcurl and Diorshow Art Pen are in the shade Bleu Croisière. If you are searching for a good waterproof blue mascara, now you know where to look!

Dior Mayday (651) Addict Lipstick

There are four Dior Addict Lipsticks in total, including Sunlight, Windrose, Cruise, and the one you see here, *Mayday (651).

Dior Mayday (651) Addict Lipstick swatch

Mayday is without a doubt one of the more saturated Dior Addict Lipsticks I have seen. It doesn’t hurt that the color is so adorable as well!

Dior Offshore (412) Addict Gloss

Dior hasn’t forgotten about the gloss girls out there, either! *Offshore (412. RRP: 31,60 euros) is a very lightly copper-tinted gloss with lots of shimmer!

There is also a red, Seafarer (642), and a Dior Addict Lip Mazimizer (005 Fresh Pink).

Dior Manucure Transat 210 Yacht, 700 Sailor

Last but not least, instead of regular Dior Vernis, Dior is making three Manucure Transats (RRP: 35,85 euros) with a nail color, a nail file, and striped nail wraps. Here you see *Yacht (210) and *Sailor (700). There is also a bright bright red, Captain.

You might already know that Dior recently reformulated Dior Vernis. They also modified the shape of the brush. These two already have the new brush.

Is anything call out to you here? The Dior awesomeness doesn’t stop here! I should have some of those Dior Addict Fluid Sticks and new Dior Vernis to show you soon!

    Ah Monsier Dior…. This looks like a gorgeous collection-I think a few pieces will be coming home with me!!

    Stacey Expat Make-Up Addict xx

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Stacey, glad to hear you’re liking the collection! I’d love to check out some of the other Addict Lipsticks as well :)

  • BeautyLoves

    The highlighter (yes, it’s a highlighter, not a bronzer) looks gorgeous. Reminds me of the Diorskin Nude Shimmer I already own. Also the blush really appeals to me. Must resist! :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey girl, I think this one is a bit more shimmery. I’ll have to do a comparison soon!

  • Carina

    What a great collection! Mostly staples, but beautiful ones.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Carina, those are the best! I like pieces that I will actually use :)

  • Bella

    I would love to see the vernis :). Other than that, Dior doesn’t work for me.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha that’s money saved! Surprisingly enough, I like Yacht the most!

  • Judith

    Ohh love the lipgloss and the blush!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I’d love to check out the darker/orange blush as well!

  • BeautiesEva

    I see a lot of things I want!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha there is MORE in this collection to love! We won’t have long to wait now!

  • Icaria

    Oooh I’m quite sure I’ll be getting Cabine and I’m curious to see how Yaght performs, if it’s easy to apply coz these light shades can be so tricky. Oh I almost forgot… That Blush Is Stunning!!! 😀

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I’ll keep you posted! Got A LOT of work to do now LOL

  • Jennifer Monforton

    Oh gosh, everything from this collection is spot-on! That single blue shadow is especially lovely :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      The texture is spot-on as well!

  • Lena L

    Oh my, that blue single eyeshadow is calling my name so loud!
    I love this summer collection from Dior. Nice comeback from the rather blah spring set, imo. :)
    I already have near identical nail shades in my stash so I would not buy them, but it is good to know these colors are in for the coming season, too!
    Thanks for showcasing them. :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha you’ll probably love Cabine! It’s nicely smooth and pigmented!

      I say yes to busting out similar shades!

  • Emae

    Cabine’s pigmentation is right on point! I don’t have something like that (not that I have many eyeshadows) or something that’s at least similar. It would be nice if I could get my hands on it!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Emae, if you don’t have anything similar, it is definitely a fun one to own! I see myself loving this on my lower lash line!

  • 38noodles

    Sweet little collection, I think I need to look into that blush and the shadows :) thanks for the peek!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      You’re welcome, girl! I’m also intrigued by Sundeck, the neutral 5 Couleurs. It’s not like I already own 9957 neutral eyeshadows LOL

  • jenn @Abeautifulzen

    hmm i’m digging the two monos but i think the blue might be dupeable. i feel like i have something simliar. but omg the pink blush thing. quite pretty!! must swatch in stores when it arrives. i hope they carry 001 and 002 in canada.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jenn, I am relatively sure I have something similar to Cabine in my stash as well, but Pavillon seems rather unique! I hope you’ll get both, too!

  • Jaa

    Omg the highlighter and the blush! Here, Dior, please take all my money and give me these two beauties!!! I think these are the replacement for the now-discontinued Dior Shimmering Powders?

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha I know the feeling :) Hmm I’m not too sure about the similarities to be honest. The blushes are more like a bronzer/blush hybrid, even though the one I have here is so pink I don’t think it’ll work as a bronzer for anyone!

  • Larie

    I really want the polishes! I think t hey are slated for a wider release here in May (currently they are a Saks exclusive and already sold out of the polish T_T) so I am waiting!!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Larie, which one(s) are you eyeing? Strange as it is, I am the most hyped up about Yacht!

      • Larie

        BOTH of the ones you have here. I don’t need the red one – I rarely wear red 😛

  • Dominique33

    I love the Hey Sailor trend all the more as a lot of collections are inspired by Brazil ! I love the 2 powders, the np, and the quints, worth the splurge once again, last year Bird of Paradise was really brazilian in a way ( np duo Bahia^^ ) and the gorgeous colours, summer 2014 is very pretty too, Dior collections are great !

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Dominique, I’m glad to hear you’re loving the collection! I would love to check out Sundeck, even though I clearly do not need another neutral quint 😉

      • Dominique33

        lol I don’t either 😉 I must say !

  • Meeline

    ohh packaging of Dior are so beautiful. Will you review the nail polishes one day? I really want to know how they last

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Meeline, yes I will! I am not the best person to do nail polish wear test though. I can tell you that in my experience, Dior nail polishes last the best on me. However, since my nails are very fragile, by that I mean 2 days! If I have the patience to use their Gel Coat, I can probably get another day out of my manicure. I know that on others Dior Vernis lasts and lasts!

  • Aurélie Bekaert

    I’m getting that highlighter fo sho 😮 sooo prettyyy

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Just remember to use a light hand and you’ll be fine! If you feel like looking fancy, a bit on your decolletage and arms would be pretty, too!

  • missundaztood

    Love the rope design on highlighter and it looks amazing, the color of Sailor is so pretty. :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I’m really curious about how Sailor is going to look on me! I haven’t tried many blue nail polishes at all :)

  • rachlovespenguins

    The lip colours look lovely. I’m not in the market for a highlighter but if I were this one would be on my list. I’m a sucker for a good nautical theme. I like yacht too!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Rach, I’m eyeing 2 other Addict Lipsticks (except for the lightest, shimmery one. Although you never know. I could turn out to like it) as well! April is such a busy month filled with new releases!

  • Teri

    Aaah, looks like you hit the jackpot! ^^
    I’m really loving everything here, you got some very nice pieces, especially the blush!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      It’s surprising how that one swatches! I was thinking it’s a bronzer/blush, but it really isn’t.

  • lyn

    I like the look of that blue eyeshadow and blush. Very, very pretty collection!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      It’s an interesting blush indeed! I MIGHT have something similar to Cabine in my stash, but it is a great one anyways!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    The highlighter looks amazing! As does the blush!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      The rope pattern is cute!

  • Chia-Yi Liu

    pavillion is gorgeous! do we get to see a featured look? but if it’s intended to be a travel collection, i would have preferred to see at the standard 5 color palette. i mean who travels with 2 single shadows? or is that too nit picky?

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Chia-Yi, I’ll do looks and get them up as soon as I can!

      There are two 5 Couleurs available as well! It’s just that I don’t have them here :)

      • Chia-Yi Liu

        i look forward to seeing them!

  • Replica

    Love the look of the rose blush and rose/gold single shadow, this collection look very promising, hope we get it out here on the 16th as well :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Clare, I’m guessing the launch dates won’t be that different! I’d love to see what you end up picking up!

  • Syirael

    That lipstick looks stunning! I also like the look of the gloss (because I am addicted to glittery things), but not so much the ‘bronzer’ (because I am slightly averse to shimmery face things, mostly because Ihave almost no experience in using them :-P)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha don’t worry about it. I approach shimmer on my face with a lot of caution as well 😉

  • SmashinBeauty

    Love the Diorskin Nude Tan 001 Transat Edition

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Yeah it’s a nice blush!

  • SprinklesOnACupcake

    Oh, I didn’t saw anything from the summer collection yet, the colors and products are so pretty, gotta love the bronzers!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Petra, it’ll be available in 10 days! The blush seems pretty unique in my collection!

  • birtegovarts

    Looks like Dior did it again!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      They have pretty systematically put out great collections for the past couple of years!

  • Sofia

    I love the bronzers that don’t seem like bronzers. I especially like the highlighting one! I went to the beach today for a small siesta, it was the first weekend with great weather, yay! And put on bronzer for the 1st time this spring :) Oh and the eyeshadows look so cute, I don’t know which one I like best! xx

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Sofia, gah a small siesta on the beach? SO JEALOUS! I’m really digging Pavillon. I don’t think there’s much in my collection that’s similar!

  • Liz

    OMG I’m so on board and will soon be overboard from bankruptcy. SO MUCH GORGEOUSNESS.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha April is a ROUGH month for the wallet! So many tempting new collections!

  • Whitney

    OH SUNNY, why you tempt me. I think I need that Nude Tan bronzer.. I love nautical patterns and that bronzer is screaming my name!! Plus, I actually need a highlighter 😀

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha sorry! I’ll get back to you about how it looks ASAP. Quality-wise I can’t nitpick!

  • Lily

    Hhmmm… I’m not sure why Dior is not speaking to me this Summer. To be fair, the only Summer thing that caught my eye is that Guerlain blush/bronzer thingy. LOL!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha that’s good for your wallet! The lipsticks are definitely calling my name rather loudly here 😉

  • Memoiselle

    I will skip on the highlighter this time but the rose shimmer looks so pretty! :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I’d love to see how the other blush looks!

  • Isabelle

    Oh my, how gorgeous is that blush!!!! It’s really quite something.. Star product of the collection if you ask me :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha why did I KNOW you’d make a beeline for the blush? 😉

  • Shayne♥

    Diorskin Nude Shimmer Rose is really pretty omg :) just a random question sunny, do you know if they are releasing amber diamond again this year? :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Shayne, I THINK Amber Diamond is being discontinued everywhere. It has been discontinued here for about 2 years now, and I can’t find it on Sephora US anymore. I am guess it’s going away for good!

  • Liss Cope

    THAT highlighter!! the blush is lovely maybe just a little bit to light for me but love the rope pattern on all the items! so nautical 😀

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha yeah everybody has to do at least one nautical collection it seems! There is a darker blush in the collection too. I think that one will work better on you.

  • peggy timmermans

    The gloss and highlighter are to die for! Ohhh I wish!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      The gloss is so pretty layered over the lipstick! You know me. If I wear it alone, it won’t do much at all 😉
