Dior Fall 2014: Tutu

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.

 

swatches

 

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?

  • Tutu is so pretty to look at! I haven’t bought a pink eyeshadow palette for a long time. If I do, Tutu would be certainly considered. It is so cute that there is a hot pink tutu in the background, and swatches on Ashlyn’s arm! <3
    I just got Bar today and I think I'm in love! I will review it soon. 🙂

    • Lily

      Oh, can’t wait to read your review. I was waiting for the testers to arrive at my local Dior counter. Just got the call. Will go play tomorrow – curious to see the other colours 🙂

  • So cute that you swatched these on Ashlyn’s arm! Aw! I haven’t worn pink eyeshadow in a hot minute but this quint is making me want to.

    • Lily

      I’ve never been a fan of pink eye shadows myself though. It’s just so much easier to take photos of someone else’s arm, and Ashlyn was more than willing 😛

  • Love that you got Ashlyn to help! So cute!
    This is SOME pink palette! I love it! If I get one of these, it might just be this one! But first I have to figure out what the hell bugs my eyes. 🙁

    • Lily

      Sometimes my eyes get a little crazy too. More often than not, it’d just go back to normal after leaving it alone 🙂

  • Oh my goodness! I’m a sucker for pinks, and this palette + lipstick is calling out to me T_T Too bad it’s Dior (and hence the hefty price tag). Guess I’ll just drool at your pictures then. XD

    • Lily

      The lipstick is a very sweet pink 🙂 Hope you get to try it though!

  • I was quite tempted with this palette too, but decided to control myself and wait till there is a sale on. Skipped the Rouge Dior since I can’t justify another pink lippie, but it’s so beautiful, I may need to have another look at it.

    • Lily

      The fact that the price is increased nearly every year doesn’t make me happy. That’s for sure!

  • Aww cutie! Thank you, Ashlyn! I don’t think this one is for me at all (don’t think I’ll be able to get any depth out of it), but I’m glad to hear quality-wise it’s great! Still a month to go till I get to see them here. Patience, patience!

    • Lily

      The quality is great. MUST use this with other darker shades though. I mean, we can create depth using a black liner as well… but just using this palette alone is not nearly enough. Definitely more flattering with darker shades 🙂

  • The lipstick looks SO pretty! I’m so tempted to get this and the quint, I don’t think I have similar colours xx

    • Lily

      I hope you get to try both of these, Liss. The lipstick is very pretty 🙂

  • Icaria

    Awww thank you Ashlyn! This palette would be great paired with other colors for me, in a way these would work better as complimentary shades. Now that lippie is sooo nice! I do believe it’ll be mine! 🙂

    • Lily

      Oh, I can’t wait to hear what you think of them 🙂

  • Liz

    Lol, Ashlyn’s arm. You’re the best mom. 😀

    I would never have thought to look at this particular quad because it’s so pale and princessy, but it looks striking against Ashlyn’s skin tone. And that lipstick is really pretty. Would love to see them on you!

    • Lily

      Yeah, she thinks I’m pretty cool for letting her play with colours. LOL! You’re right to call this princessy – very Barbie, actually. LOL!

  • Hahahaha, using your daughters for swatching! Hilarious. That is a lot of pink, lol. Different for fall, at least, but holy moly all the pink.

    • Lily

      That’s what kids are for. LOL LOL! Erm yes, pink overload 😛
