Mon Dior

There are things in world that some of us do not get, while the people around rejoice at the mere mention e.g. Crocs, The Office, VH-1 programming and The Real Housewives of (Fill-in appropriate location). Well, in the beauty realm, Dior was that for me. I did not get the whole Dior hype.  My homegirl, Adina of KraseyBeauty Blog always raves about the eye shadows and how she could not wait to pick up the new collections.   KarlaSugar’s swatch blog showcased the beauty and luxury of Dior shadows, but I remained unmoved….Until I swatched them for myself.

In Sephora, enjoying the ambiance, I am in my happy place swatching NARS, Smashbox and so forth. I, coolly, walk over to the Dior palettes not expecting much. I begin swatching.  When I see the pigmented shimmer on the back of my smooth hand, my knees get weak…(humming SWV) I was totally blown away and the texture alone (non-chalky and non-grainy) of the product.  I debated between “Electric Lights” and “Tropical Light.”  Tropical Light won out because I love green

I think my next Dior shadow purchase will be one of the following:

Well, my birthday is coming up soon, so I will be adding these gorgeous palettes to that list.

Which beauty brand have you rediscovered for the first?

    I’ve been testing the Dior Smoky Jazz palette and I think you’d be delighted with it. The Tropical quint looks pretty amazing too 🙂 Dior makes very special and unique palettes!

    Very pretty. Would love to see the swatches on your skin tone.

    I love Dior. I put off buying them for the longest time, and then, like you, I swatched some at Sephora and fell in love. I own several 5 color palettes now and Dior tends to be my main go to for eyeshadow. I also own several of the 6 shade palettes. With those, I love the cases, but the shadows don’t seem as well pigmented to me as the 5 color ones. I’m not sure why that is. I still like them quite a bit though.
