It’s a little funny to me that Dior calls this 5-Colour Designer All-in-One Artistry Palette “Nude Pink Design” ($58), seeing as how there isn’t a lot of pink in its design.
Like the four other quints in the All-in-One Artistry line, Nude Pink Design comes with three powder shadows, a cream liner and a cream base. A little mascara and you’re good to go.
As for the pink, well, it’s there, hiding within a few of the shades…
- a shimmery taupe eyeshadow
- a shimmery peachy pink eyeshadow
- a sheer, glittery peachy pink eyeshadow
- a shimmery pinkish beige cream base
- a shimmery purplish brown cream liner
You might remember another Dior quint with a similar name. Dior released the Dior 5-Colour Designer All-in-One Artistry Palette in Pink Design (sans the “Nude”) earlier this summer, but if you had trubs with that palette’s cool-toned pink and purple shades, you might have better luck with this one’s warmer palette.
Oh, and if you’re torn between what’s behind Door No. 1 (Pink Design) and Door No. 2 (Nude Pink Design), give some thought to where you might wear the colors. The Pink Design palette feels more like a party quint with its POPS of purple, whereas the Nude-ly named one feels more like an everyday product to me.
I think I’ll get a lot of use out of the colors in Nude Pink, but the price ($58) drives a stake right through my vampire heart (yep, I’m going through True Blood withdrawals).
Dior always delivers, though, when it comes to the quality of their shadows. They apply with lots of pigment, blend easily and never look like makeup cake on the skin. Available at Saks Fifth Avenue and online at saksfifthavenue.com. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B+/A-
