This came in a velvet pouch as most Dior items come in. I appreciate companies like Dior and Chanel who want to preserve their items and place them in these pouches, but I honestly hate them, because they collect every ounce of dust on them. I usually end up throwing these away.
|First 4 are eyeshadows, then the 2 lipglosses, followed by the blush|
I found the eyeshadows to be soft and silky as per the Dior standard. If you read my blog, you know I rarely have anything negative to say about Dior eyeshadows, in fact I use the quality of the Dior shadows as a measure for how good other brands are. So that says a lot. I will even go as far as to say that they make the best shadows that I have tested in my makeup journey.
The palette gives us shadow # 739, 959, 689, 804. **insert rant here**, I honestly can't stand when a company names their shadows with numbers. How often do you hear someone say, "OMG, 739 is the best", no..it is a fact that women like to have a name for their colours. So Dior, please please please, name your beautiful colours.
All 4 colours are neutral and can be worn sheer or built up for a darker more dramatic look. It's a very standard palette, nothing funky, nothing out of the ordinary ... very classy. All 4 eyeshadows have a beautiful shimmer to them.
These are a tad sticky for my liking, but I understand they had to change the formula to get the lipgloss to mold into this palette. I have no complaints about the colours.
Lipgloss numbers are: 183 and 483 (once again, numbers ugh). I mean honestly, if Dior wants people to know these colours so they repurchase them, they have to honestly change their identification system into names, because no matter how much I like a certain colour, I will NEVER remember it by name. I believe the human brain (average brain) can only retain up to 12 numbers at a time, and as much as I love makeup, I have other more important numbers to memorise.
Finally a name! 950 Framboise/Raspberry, is a very cool-toned pink, not very "raspberry" in my head, but I will remember this name. It is very soft, with very little fall out - I like that. I also love the imprint. I'm a huge sucker for that sort of design.
Diorskin Forever compact in 020 Beige Claire
Lucky for me, this fits my skin tone. I absolutely love how it pigmented it is and how it glides onto my skin. I wish I had a larger compact of this.
I find that most brushes that come with compacts are useless. In particularly the sponge tip eyeshadow brushes, so I usually end up giving them away. It's no different in this case. It's cute and has the Dior logo on it, but I know it will not work.
The blush brush actually does work and I'm grateful to have that in this compact.
I have done some research about the price of this palette, and I am getting different prices around the $66 mark and seem to be an airport exclusive. It is discontinued, so I'm afraid other than the internet, I don't know where you can pick this up, but if you find it, and you are a light-medium cool toned lady like myself, I highly recommend it!
