Dior Khaki Design Eyeshadow Palette 2

Although released a bit ago today I decided to haul out my Dior Khaki Design Eyeshadow Palette ($60) for a lovely khaki eye look! I dunno what it is but khaki green and brown eyes just go together like PB&J!

Take a peek!

Dior Khaki Design Eyeshadow Palette 3

The Dior Khaki Design Eyeshadow Palette is made up of four powder eyeshadows and one cream eyeliner in a variety of greens that graduate in color from khaki, olive, to lighter pastel green. Dior has become more and more user friendly with their shadow palette as they have a diagram in the back of the box as well as in insert inside the box with application instructions. And there’s even a plastic insert fitted over the shadow palette that tells you where each shade goes on your eyes.

Too many times I run across Dior Eyeshadow Palettes that are a bit too frosty but Khaki Design doesn’t have the issue. These have a smooth, soft texture with excellent pigmentation a minimal amount of fall out and a shimmery, soft finish. They apply like a dream and blend out just as easily. The wear is surprisingly well on my lids without primer without losing intensity or creasing for a solid eight hours. The finely milled texture of the shadows have a velvety feel.

The liner shade was slightly disappointing at first since it’s a bit dense and feels hardened. However, once you swirl a brush in and warm it up it actually has a beautiful consistency that applies without skipping on the lash line. The color wears quite strongly without smudging on my drier eyes.

Needless to say this is a dream palette for those with brown eyes…the shades just go so well with brown eyes and make them look bigger, sultry, and mysterious!

If you haven’t discovered the joys of the Dior Khaki Design Eyeshadow Palette yet this one is definitely worth exploring.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    You look stunning as always, Muse. This palette looks incredible. Being brown-eyed, I might have to splurge.

    I do own this, and I need to dig it out and start using it (I bought it this summer and put it away for the fall…and then forgot about it because I hoard eyeshadow palettes lol). I bought mine at Sephora, and when I stumbled across it (I was there to buy the Petal Shine palette) and swatched it, I made an embarassing noise so loud that a couple of the employees came over to see what I was having an Herbal Essences moment over. lol
