Time to get exciteddddddddd and sit back so you can check out all of the wonderment that is the Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Trafalgar #876. You've already seen the other 5 Couleurs I've purchased in Pied-de-Poule #096 but Trafalgar is on a whole other level of gorgeous. The packaging is the same as Pied-de-Poule – a navy blue case with the silver lettering BUT without the holographic hidden CD that they used to have (see packaging of the past). It’s just plain, glossy navy. It’s definitely more sleek looking, but I do miss the old packaging. Fear not, you’re still getting the velveteen slip case. The five eyeshadow shades you get in Trafalgar are a baby pink pearl (top left), pearly ivory (top right), a shimmering deep eggplant (bottom right), a soft yellow gold (bottom left), and a deep raspberry (center). This quad is so fantastic in terms of pigment and use. Almost a complete 180 from Pied-de-Poule. They are swatched below dry, with no primer. I didn't swatch these wet like I did with Pied-de-Poule because I didn't feel that they needed to really be seen in that way, but you can totally do it if you feel like the pigment you get from the shades worn dry isn't enough (it totally is). In the eye look below I prepped the eye with Urban Decay Primer Potion and began with the deep raspberry shade on part of the lid and through the crease, blending up. The soft yellow gold shade is worked onto the lid and in through the raspberry. Using an eye defining brush I worked the shimmering eggplant shade into the outer V and blending into the crease a bit. I also used this shade under the outer half of the lower lash line. The baby pink pearl is at the inner corners and a bit above the crease to blend it out. The pearly ivory is used as a highlight. The top eye liner is Chanel Brun Liquid Eyeliner and the bottom waterline is em cosmetics Bronze Kiss Waterliner. The mascara is IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes. The mink eyelashes are Ashlin from Flutter Lashes. How would you wear Dior Trafalgar? The Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette retail for $60.00 each and are available at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Ave, Macy’s, Sephora and dior.com.
