The $63 (!) Dior Parisian Sky Eyeshadow Palette

Hair flips πŸ’ and air kisses πŸ’•πŸ’„πŸ’‹ to reader Tatiana for pointing out to me that the design on the pans in the new Dior Parisian Sky Eyeshadow Palette look like the frame of the Eiffel Tower’s arches.

Seriously, how did I not see that??


Actually, wait — I know how. I’ve had a sh*t ton on my mind lately! And there’s only so much space up there between the makeup and the cats and the crawling, teething baby…

Hoh! But Dior’s attention to detail is a surefire recipe for lusty-lust.

Details, details!

First things first, feel free to call me whatever you want — whether it be “hoarder of all the brown shadows” or “neutrals, sucka!” or “last person on earth who needs another palette of earthy golden browns.” Seriously, call me whatever colorful nicknames you can come up with to describe someone who loves browns because…what can I say? I love browns. πŸ™‚ And this palette doesn’t have just one or two of them. It has three, and they make me wanna do the Snake, and the Robot, and the Running Man. At the same time.


I mean, who gets emo about browns? THIS CHICK RIGHT HURR.

Even though I like them both equally, I think I’ll get more use out of this palette than the purple-powered Dior Capital of Light Eyeshadow Palette #806 we looked at a few days ago.

There’s a dark warm reddish brown that looks like an eyeshadow version of MAC Teddy liner; a glossy, medium golden brown similar to a supercharged version of MAC Soba eyeshadow; and a light and juicy peachy gold brown.

All three glow with Dior’s signature finish that goes easy on the fine lines, and they feel smoother than the sound of LL Cool J whispering “I need love” in yo’ ear…

I mixed all three of them on my lids for a smoky brown eye fest today.

Oh, and FYI, that darkest brown shade? It’s SO not playin’.

The first time I used that particular shade, I mistakenly assumed that I’d be able to just drop a truck load of it into the outer corner, buff it out, and we’d be good, but nope. I ended up with a case of waaaaay too much of it in the outer corner, so I kept blending it and blending it and blending it, and it was going higher and higher and spreading out…

It just took over the whole dang thing, so I ended up wiping it off and starting over.

*shrugs* Lessoned learned here: go easy on that dark brown, lest you look all sorts of cray. You only need a smidgen because it’s concentrated.

Actually, all of these browns are fairly concentrated, now that I think about it, and thank goodness, really, because who has time to build up layer upon layer of eyeshadows when there are more important things to do like obsess over where the heck Ryan Gosling has been. SERIOUSLY, WHERE IS HE?!? I will never forgive Eva for taking him away from us…

Anywho, amidst all of this palette’s delicious caramel and chocolatey goodness are also a refreshing baby blue and a dove gray.

At first, I wasn’t sure how or even if they belonged with these browns in the same palette, but they made more sense once I got them on my inner lid, where they make the browns look richer.

Also, and even more importantly, when I plop them on my inner lids and in the corners, I think my eyes look bigger. Yay!


As for fallout, there’s very little with these shadows, and I get 12 full hours of color and shine, which I know because I’ve been working some long days lately. I see very little creasing and fading from them at the finish line.

If you’re interested, get thee to a Dior counter RIGHT MEOW, because this one and the Dior Capital of Light Eyeshadow Palette are limited edition as part of the Dior Skyline fall collection.

    This is so pretty, I thought it was Eiffel Tower architecture but wasn’t positive. On your eyes, it looks almost like the blue would be a really nice highlight, just a pop in the inner corner or on the lid.

  2. Divina says:

    I don’t know how you feel about this, but I’m not really liking the fact that Ryan Gosling is going to be in a MUSICAL! I liked him in Crazy Stupid Love or The Nice Guys. Anything but a musical, no offense.


  3. Lulle says:

    I also got this palette and I’m loving it! Talk about someone who doesn’t need more neutrals, but wants them all the same, lol! It’s definitely the best Dior palette I’ve tried in a while, it doesn’t have that dusty dryness I experienced with some of their LE quints in the past few years.
    That gray though, I don’t know what to do with it. On my skin tone it doesn’t work as well as the icy blue in the inner corner, so… maybe lower lashline? I haven’t tried that yet.

  4. Oh, this palette was so made for you! I love these colors on you. Great combo with the lip color, too!

    And, even better, they’re *pinkish* browns. What’s not to love? πŸ™‚

    Happy Friday, Friend – I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

    I’m so glad you like this one, too. When I bought this I thought, I need another neutral palette like I need a hole in my head. Bought it anyway. I keep eyeing other palettes on-line but then I compare them to the ones I already own and I take them out of my cart. Hope you have a good weekend.
    Teething baby girl… is she a wee bit cranky or just drooly? My girl was so drooly it was like a faucet. All the photos we have of her from about 4 1/5 months on she’s wearing a super absorbent terry cloth bib to soak it all up. I swear we’d go through like 4 or 5 bibs a day and her clothes underneath would still be soaked. We found a washcloth soaked in cold water then rung out really well made her happier than one of the plastic teething toys. Hope her teething passes quickly. Looking forward to seeing some pics of her cute toothy smile when the teeth finally come in.

      This one is so gorgeous. I could happily wear it every day (brown eyeshadow 4 life!). I hope you’re having a nice weekend too. Did you get to see your horse?

      So, teeth… Sigh. She’s both cranky AND drooly. She’s especially crabby at feeding time. When she’s on the breast it is a HOOT let me tell you. I’ll have to try that washcloth trick. We have a teething ring that we keep in the fridge but she’s really not into it at all; I think she’ll do better with the washcloth. Gonna keep my fingers crossed!

  7. Angela Bonanza says:

    LOL I love the random Ryan Gosling mention thrown in there! He has seriously been gone too long πŸ™ I miss him! Great post as always – the brown shadows look sooo delicious, and I can’t believe how shimmery and detailed the shadows are in the pan!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Angela,

      Seriously, where did he go? There was a glorious period where he was everywhere ALL THE TIME but alas, those days seem to be gone. LOL

      Anywho, makeup. Are you a Dior fan?

  8. Chris25 says:

    The baby blue shade is a little surprising as an addition to this quint, but all the colors look very pretty nonetheless.

    Your hair is looking incredible lately!! The length & style is so pretty on you.

    • Karen says:

      Thanks, Lorraine! I ended up getting it cut yesterday. I took about two inches off the bottom (because it was dry and going to split anyway… It needed to happen) and got some bangs!

      I hope that you’re having a great weekend so far. Happy Sunday!

    Yep, I’m about to go ham on this entire collection. BEAUTIFUL!!!!
