Dior 3 Couleurs Glow in Nude Glow...













This Dior eyeshadow palette is from the Golden Jungle Fall 2012 Collection... First of all I love the design, the palette slides open and a mirror pops up, very chic! This palette comes in four different shades, a blue, pink, ivory, and this beautiful nude that I was instantly attracted to... When I swatched the eyeshadows at the counter they felt very smooth and satin... And since I haven't used any recent Dior eyeshadows I decided to give it a go and see how they work... The look I had in mind when I got the palette is the one I created, a black and brown smoky eye...

I should probably start by saying that this palette is sold as Luminous Graphic Eye Palette Eyeshadow, Highlighter & Liner... So the idea is that you apply the nude eyeshadow all over the lid, then add the glittery eyeshadow on top for extra glamour and to finish of use the black eyeshadow as a liner... So not quite the look I was going for but you don't necessarily need to do it the way it's suggested... Use your imagination when it comes to beauty, and just go with it... 

When I started applying the eyeshadows I felt the black was very hard to work with, it didn't feel smooth to blend... I had to really work hard to make this look come together, lots and lots of blending, and I ended up applying three of my other MAC eyeshadows to lift the look and give it some depth... I didn't want sparkles and glitter in this look and only used the black and the nude from the Dior palette, but I felt they washed me out so I ended up adding Cork, Texture, Swiss Chocolate [all MAC]... 

I have not tried the Dior look that is recommended for this palette, if I will I will let you know what I think... But sofar although working with this eyeshadows wasn't the easiest job compared to my other favourite eyeshadows I still quite like the palette... The eyeshadows lasted really long... And if you have good brushes to work with and plenty of time and patience you could enjoy this palette... 


LOVE
