Today I have a slight obsession with the Dior Golden Flower 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette ($60) which is one of two limited edition palettes that launched with the Dior Golden Winter Holiday 2013 Collection.
I have to admit I think I blended it out to a near perfect finish this morning! It was such a great eyeshadow palette filled with complimentary shades that you won’t feel overwhelmed about using ALL five in a single look (sometimes I get panicky when someone hands me a palette and expects me to use five different shadows in one look! OMG crazzeee!).
Take a look!
Dior Golden Flower 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette features five warmer shades of eyeshadow with a pinky peach shade (love this color wish they did it as a single), a beige ivory, a glittery gold, a golden brown, and chocolatey reddish brown.
The shades were actually bone dry and I got a little worried this would prove a disaster but they actually apply very well with excellent pigmentation and a soft, satiny finish. I tend to get a good deal of frost from the Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes but this palette had a very easy to use formula. I used my new Coastal Scents Smoky Eyes Brush Set to create my look and I had very little fall out issues (just a bit with the middle glittery gold shade) and although dry the colors blended out beautifully. I was surprised as at first they seem dry but they go softer as you blend. They wear excellent as well without creasing, fading, or losing intensity (I tested without eyeshadow primer).
I love the classic smoky brown eye look the shades create and just a touch of pretty gold glitter brings it into the festive zone! It’s such a traditional, essential shadow palette but still manages to give off a festive feel as well!
If you love nude, natural smoky brown looks the Dior Golden Flower 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette contains the perfect selection of complimentary shades to create the look in minutes.
