Dior Fall 2013 Mystic Metallics 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes: Swatches

Here is another swatchy post, and I am featuring the two limited edition 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes for Mystic Metallics Collection 2013. They are Bonne Etoile (384) and Constellation (864), RM215 each palette. I know, there have been 3 Dior Fall swatch posts back to back, but hey, I want to get the swatches out before they’re sold out! Otherwise, it would be a “Something You Can’t Have” post 🙂

That said, I am a sucker for Fall collections because of the rich earth colours from gold to burgundy. For this collection, I think both palettes offer a beautiful variety that suit people with different tastes. While I love purples, and the gold (top right corner) in Constellation 864 is breathtaking, I find myself drawn to Bonne Etoile 384. The palette is a combination of rich colours that range from taupe to brown to greens. It is a beautiful family of colours in one palette that took my breath away.

I am lucky to be able to take a photo of these testers, brand new. The SAs haven’t even finished taking stock and I asked to photograph these untouched, so you can see them in their full glory. One of the perks being friendly to the SAs. LOL! Naturally they are not in their normal blue case but hey, we all know what they look like. The stars do not look childish but they did grab the attention of both my toddlers. Chloe and Ashlyn both ooh-ed and aah-ed at the palettes, and I used their arms to swatch the colours. Naturally, their favourites are the sparkly ones and they danced with joy, literally, at the mall.

Below are the swatches of both the palettes. Constellation looks like a really safe palette, and Bonne Etoile has THAT bluish green (the one in the middle of the swatch row)! It’s absolutely gorgeous, and the photos don’t do them justice. I took them at the Dior counter, fluorescent lighting, no flash.

Oh, and guess what? I bought Bonne Etoile as a birthday present for myself 🙂 Have you checked out this collection yet? There are cream eye shadows and beautiful lip products. Of course, there’s a whole range of new blushes too, and I’m glad they’re permanent. I might have a crush on 2 of their shades, New Red and Reddissimo, but I’ll take my time.

  • I’m am drooling over both palettes, damn you Dior! The whole collection is pretty amazing tbh! You are so lucky to have such a friendly SA ^^.

    • I agree… there are some beautiful things here. The SAs at this counter are really friendly, except that new guy who seems so … reserved. LOL!

  • Bonne Etoile is gorgeous! i really liked the mix of colors in this palette!

    • Same here 🙂 It’s a beautiful palette of different colour combinations

  • I like the purple one LOL! Im the rebel haha since almost everyone wants Bonne Etoile! But I’m not sure I’ll get it. I don’t know, I think I have so many eyeshadows similar in shade to both of these the more I see of them on blogs! I think I’m Diored out LOL!

    • Haha! Dior-ed out. I can get Chanel-ed out, but I just don’t get sick of Dior. LOL!

  • liyeun

    Great choice! The bonne etoile made me go ooh and ahh too…. great colour combi but I am NOT buying it becoz I CANT! Mr hubby has put a halt on my eyeshadow purchases, which I have to submit because I agree. Hahahahaha. Pls do an FOTD with this, I bet it looks great on you!^^

    • I’ll definitely post an FOTD using this palette. Got a few requests already 🙂

  • Hey Lily, I took a quick look at the collection right before I left Taipei, and everything seems really promising! I didn’t get to see the whole blush line-up though. Guess I’ll have to wait till it becomes available here!

    • Oh, I’m a sucker for blushes but it’s a permanent line, and there’s plenty of time for us to check it out!

  • I’m liking these more and more *sigh* especially Bonne Étoile. Can’t wait to see them.

    • You have to swatch them to see them in person. Very pretty!

  • I think they’re both gorgeous, but I never end up using these quints. I want one of the cream shadows, though, AND THE BLUSH AND THE LIPGLOSS.

    • YES! I’d love to read what you think about them … also to see which shades you got 🙂

  • Liz

    I’m starting to want Étoile quite badly, but I have to see it in person first. Also not sure I’ll actually wear those shades.

    • Definitely gotta see it in person 🙂 You might really love it!

  • Oh dear these are both so gorgeous.. But I do prefer Bonne Etoile better as well! Now if I could merge the two palettes together & have five shades I absolutely want.. 😉

    • That’s the thing about palettes…. but so far, for quints, I find Dior makes those up my alley 🙂

    Hi Lily!

    I got the same Dior palette after reading many good reviews about it. 🙂 I hope I would be able to figure out how to use it. Please do show us with a post on how you would use it. I’m sure it will help us readers alot! 🙂 thank you!

    • Of course, AhCapp, I’ll be sure to put up something 🙂

  • you should’ve taken pics of the girls being happy! lol i bet they were SO CUTE!

    • Haha! I was more worried about them knocking down the samples on the table.
