FOTD: Dior Fall 2012 Golden Jungle Eyeshadow and Lipgloss Palette

Today, I show you how I used the Panther Golden Jungle Palette, as promised. I did a daytime look, which is really easy to pull off, and I think it will suit nearly everyone. I used eyeshadow brushes to pick up the individual colours, because I don’t see any other way (as explained before), so here goes.


I used all the 3 eye colours in this palette, and I also wore the gloss on my lips. As you can see in the photos, my lips are quite nude. This gloss, when worn alone, doesn’t show very well on me. Now the eyes. With the lightest shade of the palette, I swept the colour all over my lid. It is a light beige with slight shimmer. Then using the warm medium toned brown, I applied it at the centre of my lid. I dabbed the dark brown at the outer corners of my lids and blended out all harsh edges using a clean blending brush. The medium and dark browns overlap each other from the blending, making the look softer and less defined. I lined my eyes with a Revlon’s black liner and finished off with a coat of L’Oreal lengthening mascara.

For the rest of my face, I used:

Lunasol Water Gel Foundation (sample), buffed in using Real Techniques expert face brush. For blush, I’m wearingย Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed which I recently purchased. For brows, I filled it in with Benefit powder eyeshadow in Bossy using an angled liner brush. That’s it. No concealers or highlighters or bronzers or contours, just a very simple look today.

The photos above and the one the left (below) make me look more tanned than usual. This is thanks to the mid morning sunlight that bounced off the golden coloured tiles which warmed up my skin even more. The one on the right (below) makes my face look more neutral but the colours on my eyes don’t show up as well.



I was going to experiment further with different locations and angles until I was disrupted and completely distracted. You don’t usually see what goes on during this ‘self photo shoot’ but here’s a mild taste of the behind the scenes. I’ll leave Ashlyn out of this because those photos must be censored. Too wild. LOL!



I hope you liked this softer daytime FOTD and have a good week ahead!

  • Very pretty look Lily! I love how soft it is for the day yet with a good potential to vamp it up for the evening ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Lily

      You’re right, Paris. I can easily vamp up this look by applying a darker base. This is a versatile palette ๐Ÿ™‚

  • You are so gorgeous, and so is your little girl ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Lily

      Aaw… Thanks Becca! Are you getting this palette? It’s definitely a collectors item…

      • I swore to myself that I would only get one, and unfortunately my heart already belongs to Golden Savannah ๐Ÿ˜›

        • Lily

          Oh, Golden Savannah is GORGEOUS!! I just picked it up. Can’t wait to photograph it and play ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Sunny @ Mostly Sunny

    Very pretty! Man I was convinced I don’t need this. Second thoughts second thoughts… LOL

    • Lily

      Lol! I think Golden Savannah has prettier colors. I’m gonna get it later. The SA already reserved it for me. Yay! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Aaaaw, the last photo is cute! Love it :). The whole Golden Jungle is really mad for us I think, I love every piece of it! Sooo tempting!

    • Lily

      Yeah, my photo taking session is usually quite busy behind the scenes. LOL! I’ve read lukewarm reviews for this palette, mainly about not being able to pick up the individual shadows. I agree to a certain extent, but the colours are lovely nonetheless!

  • Jenifar

    I personally would not have bought this one, primarily because of the eyeshadows and the shade. I may feel differently about the colours in Golden Khakis which appear to be something Iโ€™d be more likely to wear.

      Hi Jenifar, have you seen Khaki Design? That one might catch your fancy ๐Ÿ™‚
