** Warning: Picture Heavy **
Dior Couture Colour Eyeshadow Palette in 764 Fairy Golds is what I have. This is part of the limited edition Holiday collection. The other palette launched together is Night Golds and is the darker version of the two.
Like all other Dior quints, the palette is housed in a sturdy dark blue plastic case with the Dior logo in front. The shiny surface is susceptible to finger prints, but I’m so used to it I hardly notice.
The first shade I noticed when I opened this palette is the gold at the top right of the quint. It glittered and sparkled reminding me of Tinkerbell and her pixie dusts. The other shades lean a little cool with mauve undertones, and to be honest, I thought the colours are a little too light for my liking.
Personally, I would have picked Dior Night Golds due to the variation of colours. 4 out of 5 are lighter shades, and the 2 glittery ones are sheer. Here are some swatches on my arm to show you what I mean. I probably would have liked it even more if the bottom left shade (light mauve) is darker. That would give the palette a little more variation, instead of having so many light colours. This is a personal preference however. I prefer darker shades because of the shape of my eyes. Darker colours make me look less puffy.
Swatch clockwise starting from top left, ending with the centre shade.
That said, this palette looks different on my lids. The light mauve shade shows up quite well on my lids and when paired with the dark brown, the contrast is stunning. Since this palette is light, I don’t think anyone will have a problem with a day look. I have come up with a sparkly evening look and I hope you’ll like it. My skin colour looks a little different because of lighting (placement of flash), so please excuse me.
Dior eyeshadows usually perform very well on my lids. I can wear it without a primer and the colours will stay on crease free for at least 5 hours. With a primer, they stay the whole day. No fallouts either, not even the glittery shades. Texture is soft and buttery but not to the point of being powdery. That’s why I always love my Dior quints.
Initially it didn’t look like much, but now that I’ve been wearing it, I’ve been reaching for it. Such easy shades to wear, work appropriate when you skip the shimmers, and I’ve just shown you how I’d wear it for an evening out.
This limited edition palette retails for RM200 and will be available very soon. Does this palette catch your eye? This post is already quite lengthy so I didn’t explain how I created this look. Let me know if you want the details 🙂
