Dior Holiday Couture Collection 2013

Hey Guys!

Today I have a quick review of the Dior Holiday Couture Collection smokey eye palette requested by my lovely friend Chloe from xoChloeGordon! Please check out her amazing blog and YouTube channel!

This is one of many kits Dior has to offer for the holiday season.

The package is a pretty, sleek compact which is perfect for carrying around to do touch ups (which will be needed..more on that later). The packaging becomes dirty fast because it has the same texture as a Nars compact. It is fairly heavy and comes equipped with a mirror so you're ready for touch ups.

This kit comes with shades Dior calls Base, Colour, Highlighter and Liner. Base is a cream shimmer, Colour is a matte taupe/brown, Highlighter is a gold sparkle with a clear base and Liner is matte grey/brown.

The standout shade of the palette is the Highlighter. This eyeshadow's texture feels very similar to the new Urban Decay Moondust eyeshadows. It will be pretty during the holiday season but isn't exactly a shadow for everyday wear.

Although the shadows are fairly pigmented when swatched, they do not translate this pigmented on the lids. They are also not long wearing which is mind blowing for the cost of this palette. I've tried wearing these shadows with my Nars eyeshadow primer and my Urban Decay primer potion, which are both holy grails. Usually I will get 6-8 hours of wear with any other shadows using either primer but with these shadows, I get 3 hours at the most!

This palette also comes with a booklet showing 3 different ways to wear the eyeshadows that comes in this kit.

Overall, this palette looks stunning but the short wear time of the shadows do not make it worth $55. If you are looking to buy eyeshadows from Dior, I would recommend checking out one of their 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palettes instead.

Have you checked out any of Dior's Holiday Collection? Are there any holiday collections you're lusting after from any other brands?
