Dior Vernis #658 Capeline from 2013 Summer Mix Collection

Going on with introducing the items I picked from Dior Summer Mix Collection, today it is a juicy water melon on your tips, Dior Vernis #658 Capeline. It is a red leaning pink, not quiet coral since it is more between red and pink, not between pink and orange if this makes sense.

Once on the nails, it reminds me of water melon, which I like very much and I loved it. Until I was like,  wait a minute, there was a water melon color at Dior's Cruise Collection (check out Pat's blog for swatches), #658 Pasteque. The same number!

Then it was clear that I had at least one dupe in my stash of the new (!) color I purchased. I found four more colors, each being very close. Fracas is much closer to Capeline than it is to Creoles (previously reviewed here). Lucky is slightly darker and redder than Capeline, but very close. Lancome Rose Macaron from their recent spring collection is an affordable alternative which is also very close in color, leaning just so slightly more pink.

All in all a nice summer shade but very dupable, if you have any of these shades in your stash you can easily skip it. I must admit as juicy as Capeline is, I still like Creoles and Sunnies more. In terms of formula, as I already pointed out Capeline is au pair with other shades of this collection, great consistency and coverage, self leveling, in other words a breeze to work with.

Final thoughts: Dior Vernis #658 Capeline is a nice summer shade, great formula, true creme, opaque with two coats. It is the same color which was recently released by Dior for Cruise Collection, with the same number (#658) but different name (Pasteque). Other than this, it is also very close to other recent releases such as Chanel Fracas and Dior Lucky. If you don't have such a shade in your stash, be sure to check it out.

Do you like water melon? What about water melon on your fingers?

  1. I'm so loving corals and pinky corals right now--and this looks perfect for summer. It's a shame about it being the same as Pasteque.

    1. Yes it is, but if you like those colors and if you didn't get Pasteque, then you may want to check this one out. Cruise Collection was very exclusive and hard to get, so maybe not a bad thing that they release it again. Just the name is a bit confusing.
