Late Wednesday night I showed you a Dior Makeup Palette from the Spring 2014 Trianon Collection that’s pretty hard to get, especially if you’re in the US. Today I’m featuring a palette that is also limited edition, but, as of this blog post, is still very much available – Pastel Fontanges.
What Sephora says about the Dior Pastel Fontanges 5 Couleurs Couture Colour Eyeshadow Palette:
What it is:
A limited edition eye shadow palette inspired by the Dior spring look.
What it does:
Create an audacious halo of color around the eye with a blend of sugared-almond pink, baby blue, and golden yellow. This limited edition of the 5 Couleurs palette takes a delightful dive into the world of the Petit Trianon and the Spring 2014 collection from the House of Dior. Inspired by Marie-Antoinette and the French Trianon Palace and gardens, it is a fresh, modern take on a royal color palette that celebrates elegant and carefree femininity. Flowery pastels are accented with bursts of rich and vibrant hues for a playful yet refined expression of luxury.
For the most part, this 5 Couleurs Palette is extremely sheer. Though this is a beautiful pastel collection of colors I do wish one of the other shades would’ve been a bit deeper. For more intensity you can use them wet, but you’re going to get a lot more apparent shimmer/frost which may or may not suit you – just throwing it out there.
Formula wise the shadow quality is excellent on all of the shades – soft and easy to work with. On the middle shade you have to be a bit wary of glitter fall-out. If you are in the mood for a sheer, feminine look then Pastel Fontanges is exactly what you need.
In the EOTD look below I used Dior Mirage Diorshow Fusion Mono Matte Eyeshadow as a base on the lid and through the crease. I dusted the baby blue shade all over the lid and applied the taupe shade to the crease and outer V, bringing it in towards the middle of the eye. The pale pink shade was used to blend out the crease with the white silver shade used to highlight. The white gold shade is at the inner corners of the eye. For a liner I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Stray Dog and I actually forget what the mascara is lol I think it’s Too Faced Better Than Sex because I needed a new one (which I picked up yesterday).
