5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette
First comes 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette – Limited Edition, the first thing which couldn’t resist me buying this palette is the gorgeous pattern of sequined stars. I am already a big fan of Dior makeup and had no doubt about formula and pigmentation before buying this palette.
Dior website describes:
This eyeshadow palette is available in two harmonies, one in warm gold tones and the other in silver, to create dazzling eye makeup looks.
5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette comes in two limited edition color themes, Lucky Star with brown and gold , Moonlight with grey and silver color theme.
I bought it in shade 617 – Lucky Star because of the color selection in this palette. It has satin dark brown, pearlescent white shimmer, Pale Gold, frosted chestnut with golden sheen and a copper gold shades.
Below are the swatches of Lucky Star on hand and eyes. For complete Holiday 2018 Beauty look scroll down to the end of this post.
Formula is smooth and highly pigmented and glides on eyelids effortlessly. These eyeshadows are easily blend-able with a luxury feel. Colors are buildable from sheer to intense/dramatic look. These eyeshadows are formulated to create a glamorous look everyone want at the time of Christmas.
This is the perfect palette with festive gold shades pressed in an elegant compact with intricate pattern of Dior’s lucky stars.
This eyeshadow palette of 5 beautiful shades comes in a black sleek compact with a mirror in it. In centre DIOR is beautifully embossed with sequined stars around it. Two applicator brushes are included, one is the foam applicator other is long eyeshadow brush and angled hair brush for liner application. A black velvet protective slip case also comes with it.
Rough Dior Ultra Rouge
Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge can be defined as ultra pigmented most hydrated lipstick with an amazing long lasting formula.
Description on Dior website:
Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge is the first incredibly long-wearing lipstick with the comfort of a lip ink*: a true revolution in the history of lipstick. Ultra Rouge offers a lightweight, ultra-comfortable formula and all the colour of a high-pigmentation lipstick. The colours seem more saturated with a luminous, semi-matte finish** for incredible sensoriality and hydration. * At Dior. ** Instrumental test carried out on 20 subjects. Except shade 000.
Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge is the most hydrating, highly pigmented lipstick which feels like a lip balm and leave my lips hydrated for longer period of time. Formula is opaque, I get my desired shade in one swipe but if I really want a well defined precise application with higher intensity of color I would apply more layers.
It stays put on my lips good for 5 to 6 hours, it fades little after eating and drinking but doesn’t completely disappear, a good amount of color is still there. I anticipate it would stay put all day long without heavy eating.
Texture is smooth, creamy, very light and comfortable on lips. it has semi matte finish and doesn’t dry my lips at all but leave them moisturized.
It comes in a wide range of 26 shades including a 000 – white and 111 – Ultra Night which is a black shade. I was looking for a orangish red shade of lipstick so I picked up a 777 – Ultra Star, a bright orangish red.
Packaging is gorgeous. It comes in a red tube with a silver design which is signature of Dior lipsticks. The stick inside is round shaped like a lip balm, I apply it with a lip liner for more precise application.
Dior Midnight Wish Holiday Collection also brings four shades of Diorific Vernis – Limited Edition.
Dior website describes:
This lacquer comes in four elegant shades and pairs with the Diorific lipsticks for a sophisticated holiday look
Formula is thicker, smooth and shiny with long wear. It dries fast and lasts for long without any chipping. Color is opaque but I always apply two coats of any nail polish to bring out true color.
This limited edition Diorific vernis nail lacquer comes in a cute round bottle with a gold colored handle of applicator brush.
Applicator brush is wide and applies color smoothly without any streaking.
It comes in four shades including light pink, gold, deep red and plum. I bought it in 890 – Audace which is a magnetic plum shade.
