I can’t actually quite believe what I am writing right now, no matter how much time passes, it still doesn’t seem to sink in.
A little while ago, I was approached via email and asked if I wanted to take part in a brand fan campaign for Dior. Yes, I’m talking about THE Dior. At first, as you can probably imagine for a tiny little blogger like myself, I pretty much wrote it off as spam the second I read the subject line. There was no way someone like me would be chosen for something like that. But after reading through the email, which was extremely professional and for once, didn’t have copious amounts of spelling errors like in the ‘collab’ invites I usually get, I started to think it might just be real. Even then though, I wasn’t quite convinced, and it took a lot of googling and investigating before I finally accepted that this was very much a real invitation. As in me, a tiny blogger from Peterborough, had actually been offered a collaboration with one of the most iconic brands in history…I mean WHAT.
In celebration of Dior’s original iconic Rouge 999 lipstick that first launched in 1953, Dior wanted to send me a package including the famous shade and some other wonderful products that they offer!
Fast forward a week and I came home to a wonderful little parcel in my bedroom, I literally couldn’t contain my excitement. In fact, I’m pretty sure I let out a tiny scream. I already posted an unboxing video on my instagram if you want to check that out, but I wanted to make a little unboxing post on here too just to share with you all what I got in my gorgeous little box!
DIOR JOY EAU DE PARFUM
So first up is Dior’s amazing Joy perfume. This is a floral fragrance that is wonderfully light. I absolutely adore the look of the bottle and I know it’s going to last me for a long time. I have never, and I mean NEVER used a perfume so fragrant and long lasting as this one!
DIOR FOREVER FOUNDATION AND ULTRA CARE LIPSTICK
Second up is the Dior forever foundation. I got mine in the shade 2CR and in velvet matte finish. I have only ever used dewy foundations so I was really interested to try a matte finish for once!
Then there’s the lipstick, a stunning shade of red, perfect for nights out, winter days and bold makeup looks. Stay tuned for a blog post showing the makeup look I have created with these two products!
DIOR ULTRACARE LIQUID LIPSTICK
Next up is this beauty! The same shade as the ultra care lipstick, but in a gorgeously lightweight formula that makes you feel like you aren’t even wearing anything on your lips! This is also in the iconic 999 shade that Dior is so famous for.
CAPTURE YOUTH ILLUMINATING SERUM
Last but not least, is this little bottle of liquid gold (it may as well be). A gorgeous smelling, light serum that absorbs easily into your skin leaving it soft and glowy. This is the ultimate boost you need in your skincare routine!
Et voilà, five amazing products. All neatly wrapped up in a little box. I only wanted to share a little bit about them in this post because I’ll probably end up doing separate posts on them all anyway, so stay tuned for that!
I just want to finish this post by saying how grateful I am. I have been blogging for just under two years now and I absolutely love it. That, in a nutshell is the reason I do it. Because I genuinely love it. But to be approached with an offer like this with such an amazing brand is just the icing on the cake for me. It’s such a great feeling to think that my hard work was recognised and that someone out there thinks I’m worthy of something huge like this! When it comes to stuff like this it’s not just about the great products you receive, but the feeling that your content and writing is truly appreciated by others! I only hope that I can continue to do things like this in future and I can’t wait to share more about these products with you all!
Last but not least, I want to let you know that I am running a GIVEAWAY with Dior over on my instagram where you can have the chance to win a Forever foundation AND a Dior ultra care lipstick! The competition ends on 15th September and the rules are detailed in my post! Good luck! x
