This Monday's Makeup Wars theme is focusing on our favorite celebrity for a beauty brand. For quite a while my fave celeb for a designer beauty brand has been Charlize Theron. So much about her encompasses beauty, and not just on the outside. She's involved in women's rights, animal rights and has started her own charity called the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, which is committed to reducing the prevalence of HIV/AIDS and sexual violence among African youth.
While we usually see Charlize looking bronzey natural in her Dior promos I have seen her wear a smokey look, which she obviously rocks. This is more of a homage to her rather than a recreation of how she looks in the ads. Plus I really wanted to show you guys this gorgeous palette that I picked up at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - the Dior Eye Reviver Backstage Pros Nordy Girl Palette ($62.00 // Nordstrom)!
This palette is limited edition and exclusive to Nordstrom but has the same packaging as the original Eye Reviver Palette. Included are four rosy toned eyeshadow shades, a base shade and a plum eye liner.
At first glance, in-store, I seriously thought this palette was the same as the original. Once you get it in a better light, it's easy to see that they're very different from each other. Where the original is very neutral and natural the Nordy Girl palette is much more rosy, purpley, taupes... much smokier, much more seductive. Perfect for Fall! Like the other palette all of the shades worked well on the lid and together. Blending was easy and the wear time was all day over a primer. Extremely happy with this purchase, it's a must have for your makeup arsenal!
