.

When I came across information on Dior‘s holiday 2015 makeup collection, I was a little disappointed to see another Diorific pressed powder. Even though I do love the packaging of Diorific items, the new one for 2015 doesn’t look that much different from the previous two from 2013 and 2014.

Today, my Stash Debut series continues with Primavista!

Primavista is a base make line from Kao Sofina. It was launched in fall 2008 to replace (my beloved) Raycious. I had a chance to try Powder Foundation Moist Touch and a kind friend shared a couple of other items with me as well, but Face Powder (Keep & Reset) was my first purchase from the line.

I have always liked the golden curvy bottles and cases of Dior‘s Diorific items, so it has been nice to see new Diorific items for the holiday seasons in 2012, 2013 and 2014. For holiday 2014, Dior released Diorific Golden Shock Illuminating Pressed Powder. It is fairly similar to Perfumed Illuminating Powder for holiday 2013, but I did decide to get it after getting the one from last year.
