Dior launched its newly revamped line of 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes in line with its Fall 2014 Collections. In Malaysia, we get 10 permanent quints and 1 limited edition one (Trafalgar). There are 5 themed looks for Fall 2014, and Tutu is one of them. For each look, there are matching eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks and nail polish. Tutu is one of the looks, and the theme is pink. Here, I will show you the new eyeshadow palette in Tutu (846) which is a permanent and the limited edition Rouge Dior in Rose Tutu (354).
The eyeshadow palette is built around a central shade (centre shade) which is the signature of the palette. The other 4 are accessory shades, used to complement the central shade. So for Tutu, the central shade is pink. The rest of the shades lean pastel, and at first look, they all look a bit too monochromatic and light. Applying them on the lids prove otherwise. The colours are creamy, smooth and silky, and this palette contains mostly colours with a very pretty sheen. For those who have flatter eyes and a less prominent crease, I suggest using these colours with another darker shade to create more contrast. Personally, I think just a black liner does the trick. I never had any problems with wear time even with the old version, and this is the same. I’ve also always liked Dior quint formula, so no complaints there. Here is a closer look at the palette.
The complementing lipstick is Rouge Dior in Rose Tutu. It applies quite sheer on my lips. However, the colour shines through. It is a soft light rosy pink which looks good even on my warm complexion. I’d say it’s a neutral pink, but if you have a cooler skin tone, this might show up a little more pink. It wears a good 3 hours on me, and the formula is moisturizing without drying up my lips. No lip balm is needed. In fact, it KEEPS my lips hydrated 🙂 Rouge Dior is one of my favourite lipstick formula, so I might be biased. Please let me know if it doesn’t work for you, then at least I know there is some sort of flaw to this awesome lipstick. I guess the price of RM102 isn’t exactly attractive, but most lipsticks from a luxury brand are around that price range.
Here are the swatches on Ashlyn’s arm. She has darker skin, so the colours look lighter on her than on me.
The swatches above are taken under direct sunlight. The shades don’t change much indoors, but I wanted to show you how beautiful the sheen is. They are not sparkly at all, don’t misunderstand – but it’s that satiny look that it provides. It looks just as smooth as it applies. Very creamy. The lipstick looks very girly as well. I haven’t had the time to take a photo of the look, but I’ll try to do that this weekend.
You can take your time to assess which palette strikes your fancy because they’re permanent (RM225 each), but if you like the Rouge Dior, I suggest you get it while it’s available (limited edition item and all). I will try to get the swatches of all the palettes for you guys – just give me some time. I’m curious to try all the colours myself, actually, so no hassle at all 🙂
Have you seen or played with these? Any thoughts?
