Dior Blue Tie Palette: New for Fall 2011

Published in: Daily Photo

Pictures and swatches of the new Dior Blue Tie Palette ($70! — WOW!) for fall 2011, coming soon to Dior.com and available now at Nordstrom stores.

Quick first impressions…

  • The pigments — The blue shadows apply sheer; the shimmery gray and black ones apply with medium pigmentation.
  • Texture — The four shadows feel harder and less buttery to me than the Dior shadows I’ve tried in the past. I’ll be able to tell more after I’ve some time with them.
  • The gloss — A creamy pink, unflavored and unscented. It leans toward the cool side of the spectrum.

What do ya think of the colors? The price isn’t exactly great…

  6. Purrty, mucho dinero! I like it though..

  7. Ava says:

    Not worth $70. But the Tuxedo polish was very pretty and worth the price if you don’t already have a deep blue.

  8. Katie says:

    I feel like i already have too many similar colors to those shadows! If the colors were incredibly unique I would definitely pay the $70

  9. Maya says:

    Veeery pretty! But not 70$ pretty. I will have to check the price in Europe.

  10. Julie says:

    I have similar colours to these as well but I would still love to see a FOTD for some inspiration on how to use these! I’ve never been able to do more than just a blue/grey smokey eye and would like some new ideas.

    Gorgeous! It oozes luxury.

  12. Lauren says:

    its a gorgeous palette and i love that they have a little door to keep the lipgloss from getting stray powders in it, but $70 is so expensive! especially when your first impressions weren’t raves

  13. Kelly says:

    Very pretty! Wish I could buy it but that price tag is a tough one to swallow :/

    Soooooo pretty! But for $70 bucks I would want these to spread like butter.

  15. Barb says:

    Wha, What, What!?!?!? $70 for four eyeshadows and a gloss?? Sure the colors are pretty but I’m sure I’d be able to find similar dupes for half the price.

  16. Caroline says:

    Love Dior but am unimpressed by this overpriced underpigmented offering. Pass.

  17. AtelierGal says:

    The colors are so underwhelmed for that pricing
