I’m almost positive Dior Beauty paid someone to dive into my head, find out everything I want in a Fall makeup collection and create it, thus forcing me to purchase a lot. I would have bought the whole thing if I could have. I’m likely going back for a few more pieces (keep that to yourself, I don’t need the world knowing about my Dior obsessions) ;).
But, I’m getting ahead of myself. The first item I’m going to share with you from the Fall 2013Dior Mystic Metallics Collection is one of the two 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes. This one is Bonne Etoile (view Constellation here!) and it’s quite possible that this is my favorite Dior palette of all time. Ever.
What Nordstrom says about the Dior Bonne Etoile 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette:
The iconic 5 Couleurs palette is embossed with Dior’s lucky star. Eyeshadow palettes shimmer with iridescent shades in two different harmonies.
Bonne Etoile offers up shades of brown, khaki, seafoam green, midnight and silver.
Not since Iridescent Leather (circa Fall 2008) have I loved a Dior palette of any form so much. It might look gorgeous in photographs… but it’s even MORE so in person. The pigment is fabulous in all shades, application is flawless… the eye looks you can create are smoky and mysterious… The stars on the shadows are decorative, but not childish. This palette is sexy while still being chic. Khaki’s are looking big for fall and this palette incorporates teal in such a way that it works and works well.
It’s limited edition, and (I’m about to get dramatic) yes, you need it more than life.
For this EOTD I began by applying a thin layer of Urban Decay Primer Potion. The seafoam green shade is all over the lid, the midnight shade is at the outer V, the brown shade is in the crease, the silver shade is at the inner corners and to blend out the crease and the khaki shade is under the outer part of the lower lash line. The top liner is MAC Mystery Kohl Power and the bottom liner is Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Stash. The mascara is Chanel Khaki Bronze Le Volume.
Dior Bonne Etoile 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette retails for $61.00 and is currently available at Nordstrom as part of the Anniversary Sale. Look for it soon at Sephora, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Ave and dior.com.
