Dior Birds Of Paradise Couture Colour Eyeshadow Palettes: Brief Review and Swatches

There are two 5-couleur eye shadow palettes in the Dior Summer Collection 2013 Birds Of Paradise. They are Peacock 434 and Blue Lagoon 374. This post is mainly to show you the swatches and very briefly tell you what I think of them.

Peacock is a palette of green hues and Blue Lagoon is well, full of blues and perfect for Mondays. Both the palettes have great consistency, while Peacock is on the sheerer side compared to Blue Lagoon. Peacock gives a fun younger look and when paired with light pink cheeks, it is flirty and playful. Blue Lagoon can be the sultry one, especially when paired with smudgy black liner.

Here are the close ups of the palettes and their swatches. I swatched them using my fingers, and on my dry arm. With a brush and primed lids, these colours stay on me well after 5 hours, then they would fade. However, I experienced little to no creasing, which is consistent to most Dior eye palettes.

For me, I prefer Peacock for day and Blue Lagoon for night. I love using Peacock with a brown base and Blue Lagoon with a black base. I will show you how they are worn in later posts 🙂 Have you swatched these at counters? Did any of these 2 palettes catch your attention?
