Dior New Look Eye Palettes: Swatches!!

** Warning Picture Heavy!! **

I introduced this mini collection to you in my Lisa Eldridge post and it is now launched and already selling at all Dior counters nationwide! I was at the mall on the weekend and saw these palettes. I was in luck because I had my camera with me. So, I gladly took some swatches for you. I used the arm of one of the beauty consultants actually. She happily obliged. Such a nice girl! Now, on to the swatches, all in one post 🙂

Royal Kaki

I would say this is the star of the collection. The colours and texture are very lovely. Smooth and very pigmented. The beauty consultant’s skin was very dry, so the colours didn’t translate as well. Still did the job though! There’s a buttery cream colour from the top right corner, a flamboyant shimmery silver and a matte black at the bottom row, a beautiful wearable gold on the top left and the middle is the featured Khaki colour which is not ashy at all. Love this one!

 

Bleu de Paris

This palette was featured in Lisa Eldridge’s video on how to do a smokey eye. This palette swatched like a dream! I usually shy away from blues because they can make me look grey and flat, but this one is excellent! I believe this is the best blue palette I have ever encountered. We have a sheer silver as highlight, a dark blue, a silvery black, a metallic muted blue (love this shade!) and a light greyish blue in the middle.

 

Grège

I believe this is a combination of whites, greys and beiges. The colours are neutral and when swatched on dry skin, are a little sheer. I should have put a primer on her arm first. LOL! As you can see, the palette consists of 5 different colours but in similar grey brown hues. There is only 1 warmer colour which is the top left. It’s not anything too different from other neutral palettes you see, but this is one that is neither too cool or too warm which should suit most skintones.

 

Rose Porcelaine

This palette is a little too pink for me. Pinks don’t work well on my eyes. However, I do like the darker shade here. It looks grey but swatched brownish grey. I find the pinks in this palette a little too similar with each other. They all have the same sheen, and they all have the same pinks, just a tad lighter or a tad more pink… if I’m making any sense (excuse me, it is 1:30AM now after all). Of the 4 palettes, this one is a miss for me.

 

There is also a brand new mascara launched together with this collection, and an eyelash heat curler. I’ll talk about these in a separate post. These palettes retail for about RM200 like all their other 5 couleurs palette… or is it RM195? Oh dear, I can’t remember. This late night is eating into my memory. OK, off to bed for me and I hope the swatches are helpful.

Have you seen this already? Did you see anything you like from these swatches? I will post some FOTD using these palettes and talk more about them individually. They might just look a little different on the eyes. Till then, stay beautiful!

    Pretty!! I love Bleu de Paris and I just might run to the stores to get myself one now! FOTD ASAP please! :p

  • Lily

    Yes! I really like this blue palette! I actually took a photo of the consultant who was wearing it. It was absolutely lovely. I\’ve never been drawn to blues because I never wear them, but I can definitely see myself wearing this one =) You MUST go to a DIOR counter to try it out. I also like Royal Khaki very much!

    • Sukie

      I listened to your advice and I swatches them at a counter… Big mistake! :s

      • Lily

        LOL Sukie! I see you bought the Bleu de Paris. Isn’t it just a beautiful palette? I’m thinking of different ways to wear it so I can post a few FOTDs using it. Hey, show me your makeover!

  • I’m especially drawn to Kaki and Grège. Totally can’t wait to have the chance to check these palettes out as soon as possible! 😉

    • Lily

      Hi Jess, thanks for stopping by!
      I absolutely love Kaki. The swatches here don’t do any justice! Yes, do check them out. I can’t wait to read what you think about them too =)

      • Will of course report about on my blog, if I decided to pick them up. Not sure, if they are already released over here though. Austria is super super slow actually… :/

        Thanks for your swatches anyways! 😉

        • Lily

          You’re welcome, Jess!

  • Hanny

    Eeeeks, they are so pretty!! ^.^ However, as pretty as they are, I don’t really fancy these colors, most probably because I already have them? It’s a strange thing I know, but am a girl with a limited budget, Dior will have to wait until I have a sugar daddy >.<

    • Lily

      Hey Hanny. No, you don’t need to wait for a sugar daddy. Just get a job with good pay 😉

      • Hanny

        True also! ^.^ Let’s wait a few more years k? Wish me luck!

        • Lily

          Good luck Hanny. I’m sure you can do it 🙂

  • Sunny @ Mostly Sunny

    I think Bleu de Paris is the standout here, but I usually don’t wear blue so I might want to swatch it first 🙂 Can’t wait to see your FOTDs!

    • Lily

      Hi Sunny, I don’t usually wear blue either but this is so wearable, in my opinion. I don’t really wear bright blues AT ALL so this is right up my alley =) You really should go to the counter to have a look. I bet you’ll like it. Great for a smokey eye!
