To begin with, Dior’s summer collection, the Dior Summer Games 2020, is all about bright, bold “stadium”shades, sun-kissed shades and indigo-blues . Moreover, I’m guessing the Summer Games 2020 Collection was a nod to this year’s summer Olympics. For example, the two Color Games iconic 5 Color Eye Shadow Palettes are named Dive and Sprint. These are two Olympic sports played during the summer games. In fact, these Summer Olympics should be happening sometime next month. Unfortunately, the only Summer Games we’ll be seeing is the Dior Summer Games 2020 Collection. And, we can all thank the Coronavirus for that!
Furthermore, the Summer Games 2020 Collection has it all, from eyeshadows, blush, bronzer, nail polish to face powders and foundation. There are two 5 Color Variations Eyeshadow Palettes in the collection. I purchased one of them. Also, there are two new Dior Show Color and Contour Duos, in Solar shades. Finally, I purchased a limited edition Dior Forever Summer Skin Tint.
Additionally, the Iconic Color Games 5 Color Eye Shadow Palette costs $63. In addition, The Dior Show Color and Contour Duo costs $34. And, The Dior Forever Summer Skin Tint Foundation costs $52.

The Color and Contour Duos are pens, that have lids. So, nothing leaks in your bag. And, the Forever Summer Skin Tint comes in a plastic bottle. All you need is your fingers to apply to your face.

Also, you can use the creamy shadow as a block of color eyeshadow. Then, use the liner to line your lower lash lines. Also, I like to use it in my crease, and shear it out. Also, use it on the outer corners of your eyes.

The Dior Forever Summer Skin Tint Foundation comes in four shades. For the lightest of the light complexions is Fair Light. Next, Light is for those of you who have light skin, but tan easily. Then, medium is for medium and medium tan complexions. Finally medium deep is for those of you with deeper skin tones. If you are in between two, go for the one you like.
All of the shades are lightweight, which means, they are very forgiving.
My Final Thoughts on the Dior Summer Games 2020 Collection…..
To begin with, when I saw this collection, it was love at first sight. Then, I had a hard time finding the pieces that I wanted. I was even willing to send to Selfridges in London for a piece. Still haven’t been able to get one of the new blushes! Although, I did put my name on a waitlist. Even more, I loved both Dive and Sprint. Although, I felt I would get more wear from the browns and oranges – the solar shades!
