Dior’s Cool Wave Summer Collection explores the sensuality of the season with a contrast of scorching hot and watery cool tones. Peter Philips, Creator and Image Director for Dior Makeup on the Cool Wave Collection:
“It’s like the splash of an incandescent body diving into cool water. Formulas with a cooling effect in energetic colors melt into sun-kissed skin.”
The Dior Cool Wave Summer 2018 Collection includes:
5 Couleurs Cool Wave Summer 2018 Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette in 367 Cool Down (aquatic shades of blue) and 597 Heat Up (sunset tones of coral, bronze and nude).
Diorshow Cooling Stick Cooling Effect Eyeshadow in 001 Bronze Wave, 002 Gold Splash, 003 Fresh Pink. This water-based formula cools skin on contact and can be used as a shader, liner or highlighter. Plus, fantastic for travel.

Since I don’t live near a Dior counter, and my Sephora doesn’t carry seasonal collections, I had to travel to try to find this collection to see it in person. The 5 Couleur Eyeshadow Palettes are stunning in person; the pigments almost glow at you from the cases.
I always love Dior Vernis and the colors in this collection scream summer! The must-have shade is Blop. This color is why I love Peter Philips; it’s unusual, provocative and completely wearable. Love!
The other big story in this collection are the bronzers. Very subtle variations of color; I honestly couldn’t make up my mind which one to buy. There is a slight shimmer/iridessence to the powder that’s perfect for summer. I think the prettiest shade is #002 Soft Sunlight, and that is the one I’ll be ordering.
