My posh feline pal/employer is currently going through a “shoo-shoo frou-frou” phase today where he insists that everything — and I mean everything! — within his kitty line of sight be high end, from the Dior ribbons he exercises with to the Dior 5-Couleurs Designer Eyeshadow I’m wearing.
He’s so fancy!
Since I know better than to protest (the consequences are always dire), all I can do is put up my paws in surrender, submit to his demands, paint my lids with one of these new $62 (!) palettes, and go on my merry way.
Amber Design and Taupe Design are two of Dior’s six recently revamped Dior 5-Couleurs Designer All-In-One Professional Eye Palettes available now online and at Dior counters.
If you’re into pearly, shimmery shadows and don’t mind the price, these might interest you.
The palettes are comprised of coordinating colors in what Dior calls “harmonies,” and each one includes a base powder eyeshadow to use as a lid primer, two powder eyeshadows, one sparkling highlight shade and a gel liner.
I like the liner… I think it’s pretty good, and the soft, almost creamy shadows remind me of mellower, less intense MAC Veluxe Pearl Eyeshadows.
The Dior shadows have a hazy, watercolor-like pigment payoff, which means that it’ll take a while to build them up if you’re going for shockingly vibrant. I’d probably only use them for luminous looks that don’t rely on intense shadows; otherwise, I’d be layering till Caturday, yo!
These are pretty pricey for sheer, pearly eyeshadow quints, but I don’t necessarily mind that they’re sheer (sometimes I want and like sheer). It’s just that for the price…it would have been nice to have the ability to go full-on glamazon without so much work, you know?
OK, gotta run. I hear my boss calling me… “Coming, sir! I’ll be right there with the Feline Greenies.” 🙂
