It’s hard to believe I’m blogging about a fall collection in July, but apparently Dior can’t wait for summer to be over. I’m in no hurry, but I’m enjoying their new 5 Couleur palettes. It never hurts to have a palette filled with pigmented eye shadows that is actually pretty to look at. The palettes are are embossed with a cute star pattern. What is nice isthe design won’t disappear after a few uses.
The palettes are a nice mix of high shimmer, sheen and iridescent shades. My favorite is Bonne Etoile. It has a nice teal shade (which I can never have enough of), a very pretty pale green with a gold sheen, a blackened forest green with gold sparkle, a medium dark brown with gold shimmer and a very pretty, high shimmer pewter shade.
Constellation has a gray-mauve with low sheen, a pale iridescent pink, a dark purple with silver sparkle, a gray-purple with low sheen and a high shimmer pale silvery gold. While this palette doesn’t scream fall to me, it doesn’t offer options for day and night time looks.
The shades in this palette really should be swatched to see how pretty they are. My swatch photos aren’t doing them justice.
This collection is exclusively sold at Nordstrom stores and website for $61.
