Dior Ambre Nuit (746) Eyeshadow Palette
Dior Ambre Nuit (746) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Ambre Nuit (746) Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of warm-toned neutrals that ranges from frosted peach to deepened bronzy brown. The colors are dupable, and you can certainly find better-performing neutral palettes on the market given how many are available, but at least this did better than most of Dior’s palettes have in the last couple of years. The trouble showed up primarily during application, as the drier texture proved more difficult to work with for blending and getting color to adhere evenly and smoothly to bare skin. This one should work well enough over a primer if you typically wear one.

Ambre Nuit #1 is a light-medium peach with a warm, gold shimmer-sheen finish. It had so-so color payoff with a powdery, somewhat dry texture that didn’t apply well to the skin and tended to emphasize the skin’s texture. It lasted for six hours on me before fading. MAC Hey (P, $16.00) is more shimmery. MAC Say, Yeah! (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery. MAC Say, Yeah! (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery. MAC Naked Lunch (P, $16.00) is more shimmery. NARS Nepal (P, $24.00) is darker. LORAC Light Bronze (P, ) is warmer. Too Faced Cheers! (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker. theBalm Dream Boat (LE, $16.00) is lighter. bareMinerals Ball Gown (LE, ) is more shimmery, warmer. Kat Von D Killing Jar (P, ) is darker. Make Up For Ever I520 Pinky Sand (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, warmer. Make Up For Ever I520 Pinky Sand (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, warmer. NARS Valhalla (P, $24.00) is more shimmery. Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita #1 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer. Viseart Pont des Arts (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Ambre Nuit #2 is a medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It swatched significantly lighter than it appeared in the pan, despite having good coverage. The consistency was slightly dry but adhered decently to the skin and lasted for seven and a half hours before fading. Dior Golden Flower #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker, brighter. Kat Von D Nephilim (LE, ) is darker. Gucci Beauty Starlight (P, $37.00) is cooler. Kat Von D Nephilim (LE, ) is darker. Too Faced Frosting (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker. Make Up For Ever I538 Pearly Gray Beige (P, $21.00) is cooler. Make Up For Ever ME644 Iced Brown (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker. Anastasia Topaz (P, $12.00) is darker. Tarte Keepsake Frame (LE, ) is darker. LORAC Unattainable (P, ) is darker. Chanel Tisse Vendome #1 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker. Too Faced Buttered Rum (LE, $16.00) is darker. Sleek MakeUP Court in Cannes (LE, $9.99) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Golden Touch (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Tempting (P, $16.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Ambre Nuit #3 is a brightened, peachy-white with warm undertones and a frosted, metallic sheen. It was dusty to work with with semi-opaque pigmentation and seven-hour wear. Hello Kitty Friendship (LE, ) is cooler. Guerlain Les Precieux #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery. LORAC Dream Girl #10 (LE, ) is darker. MAC Summer Honey (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker. theBalm #14 (P, $6.50) is darker. theBalm #4 (P, $6.50) is darker. Urban Decay Sellout (P, $18.00) is darker. Urban Decay Sellout (P, $18.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Ambre Nuit #4 is a muted, dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a lightly dry, dusty consistency that tended to sheer out when applied to bare skin, so it would greatly benefit from some sort of base to help it cling better. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. MAC Buckwheat (LE, $16.00) is darker. Dior Fairy Golds #5 (LE, ) is darker. Chanel Tisse Fantaisie #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery. Dior Contraste Horizon #4 (LE, ) is warmer. Viseart Copper (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Chanel Seduction #4 (LE, ) is darker. LORAC Sable (P, ) is less shimmery, darker.

See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Ambre Nuit #5 is a light-medium, muted brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nice color payoff with a soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t powdery (!).

Dior Contraste Horizon (556) Eyeshadow Palette
Dior Contraste Horizon (556) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Contraste Horizon (556) Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a brighter, more colorful set of shades for summer. You know me, despite having a fairly consistent negative experience with Dior’s palettes these days, that bluish-teal color drew me in, and shortly after receiving my order, I deeply regretted purchasing. The texture of the eyeshadows is drier overall, and they just performed poorly as far as wear and application went without some sort of helper (base or primer).

(And as a heads up, Nordstrom is doing price-matching, so all Dior eyeshadow palettes are 10% off at the moment.)

Contraste Horizon #1 is a light-medium, meadow green with warm undertones and gold, frosted shimmer. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a dry, powdery texture that kicked up a lot of excess powder in the pan and performed poorly applied, as it sheered out and was difficult to get it to “stick” in places. This shade had faded within six hours of wear. Giorgio Armani Gold Hercule (32) (LE, $33.00) is more shimmery, darker. Tarina Tarantino Secret Pond (LE, ) is brighter, warmer. Tarina Tarantino Wonderful #4 (P, ) is lighter, brighter. MAC In the Meadow #3 (LE, $21.00) is darker, brighter, warmer. Makeup Geek Charmed (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, darker. MAC 2 Dozen and One Greyhounds (LE, $16.00) is darker, brighter, warmer. Clarins Garden Escape #3 (LE, ) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Contraste Horizon #2 is a medium, yellow gold with a frosted finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff paired with a drier texture that gave the lid a more textured appearance when applied. I had some fall out over time, and the color started to fade after seven hours. theBalm Iron Maid-in (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker. Milani Drenched in Gold (P, $6.99) is more shimmery. Make Up For Ever ME512 Golden Beige (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. Too Faced Nutmeg (LE, $16.00) is darker. Stila Vitality (P, ) is more shimmery, darker. Too Faced Honey Pot (LE, $16.00) is darker. Too Faced Honey Pot (LE, $16.00) is darker. Dior Golden Shock #5 (LE, ) is more pigmented. Makeup Geek Magic Act (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented. YSL Dewy Gold (08) (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, warmer. Tarte Vivacious (LE, ) is lighter. Rouge Bunny Rouge Golden Rhea (P, $19.00) is lighter. Dior Sundeck #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery. theBalm #41 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery. Sleek MakeUP Meet in Madrid (LE, $9.99) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Contraste Horizon #3 is a lavender-tinged white with a matte finish. It was somewhat powdery and had semi-opaque coverage, but it was prone to sheering out on the skin. It started to fade after six and a half hours of wear.
bareMinerals Velvet Lavender (LE, $14.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Contraste Horizon #4 is a medium-dark bronzy brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice color payoff and was one of the best shades in the palette, as it blended well and adhered to the lid. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading. It is extremely dupable, though. MAC Divine Decadence (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker. NARS Fez (P, $24.00) is lighter, warmer. Benefit Dandy Brandy (P, $18.00) is more shimmery. Inglot #421 (P, $6.00) is darker. Le Metier de Beaute Axiom (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery. MAC Eclair (LE, $18.50) is more shimmery. MAC Lie Low (P, $21.00) is less shimmery. MAC Twinks (P, $16.00) is darker. Make Up For Ever D652 Celestial Earth (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. Make Up For Ever I634 Praline (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Too Faced Chestnut (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. LORAC Mocha (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter, more muted. Kat Von D Papilio (P, ) is darker. Clarins The Essentials #7 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker. Guerlain Petrouchka #4 (LE, ) is warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Contraste Horizon #5 is a medium-dark blue with a hint of green and a frosted sheen (it’s more blue than teal to me). It had good pigmentation with a drier texture, so the color translated poorly onto bare skin, but it worked a lot better over primer (for reference). On bare skin, it lost vibrancy and tended to dust away to more semi-sheer coverage and lasted a mere six hours on me. Sugarpill Starling (P, $13.00) is more shimmery, cooler. theBalm Open to Offers Olwen (LE, $16.00) is more muted. Guerlain Les Aquas #3 (P, ) is darker. Disney by Sephora Diamond Sky (LE, ) is less shimmery, warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Emerald Lust #3 (LE, ) is warmer, better quality. Makeup Geek Mermaid (P, $5.99) is lighter. Kat Von D Bukowski (LE, ) is lighter, brighter. Urban Decay Madness (LE, $18.00) is cooler. Rouge Bunny Rouge Mysterious Tinamou (P, $19.00) is darker, more muted. Sugarpill Holy Ghost (P, $13.00) is cooler. Colour Pop Coconut (P, $5.00) is darker. Tarina Tarantino Ozma (LE, ) is warmer. Gucci Beauty Iconic Ottanio (P, $37.00) is more shimmery, darker.

Dior Summer Dior Addict Fluid Stick
Dior Summer 2015 Dior Addict Fluid Sticks

Dior Tropiques (379) Dior Addict Fluid Stick ($35.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a brightened, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had mostly opaque coverage that pulled slightly into lip lines; the high-shine finish made it harder to notice from a normal viewing distance. On me, the color lasted for five hours and was hydrating while worn. Sephora Collection Pretty in Pink (23) (P, $14.00) is darker, cooler. Maybelline Rebellious Raspberry (110) (LE, $8.99) is darker, brighter. Revlon HD Strawberry Topaz (535) (P, $8.99) is darker, brighter, warmer. Dior Rieuse (373) (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer. Dior Wonderland (575) (P, $35.00) is darker, brighter. Dior Magique (479) (P, $35.00) is lighter. Chanel Sonate (178) (P, $29.50) is less pigmented. MAC Drawn in Chic (LE, $15.00) is warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty Paint It (202) (P, $28.00) is warmer. MAC Star Quality (LE, $20.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dior Ciel Rose (449) Dior Addict Fluid Stick ($35.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy pink with warm undertones and a creamy, high-shine finish. It had fairly opaque coverage, but this one did pull into lip lines a little more noticeably than Tropiques. The color stayed on well for five hours and was moisturizing over time. Marc Jacobs Beauty Fame (206) (P, $28.00) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty Fame (206) (P, $28.00) is darker. NARS Corsica (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dior Plaisir (779) Dior Addict Fluid Stick ($35.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a brightened, medium fuchsia with subtle, warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had nearly full color coverage that went on evenly and tended to smooth out lip lines, rather than pull into them like the other two shades. The gloss lasted for almost six hours and was comfortable to wear as it was hydrating over time. MAC Hopelessly Devoted (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Giorgio Armani #523 (P, $29.00) is darker, more muted. MAC Impassioned (LE, $15.00) is darker. Burberry Oxblood No. 23 (P, $29.00) is lighter, more muted, less pigmented. Dior Mona Lisette (872) (LE, $35.00) is warmer. MAC Pleasant (LE, $20.00) is less glossy. Dior Darling (775) (P, $35.00) is lighter, more muted. Urban Decay Big Bang (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler. Revlon HD Pink Ruby (515) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, cooler.See comparison swatches/ compare dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: It is supposed to be a formula that has the effect of “shiny gloss and pigmented lipstick into one color-rich product.” It is touted as long-wearing, lightweight, and has coverage “that is between a gloss and lipstick.” They have a very creamy, slightly gel-like consistency that’s light-medium in thickness, an ultra-glossy finish, and good color coverage. The texture is non-sticky initially, but it develops moderate tackiness within a few minutes of wear. The major issue I had with this formula was that it was very prone to getting on my teeth, and there’s a fine line between even coverage and over-application. It’s comfortable to wear and fairly hydrating over time. It had a perfume-y scent that is stronger during application than it is worn, and occasionally, I tasted soap.

Dior Rouge Brilliant Lipgloss
Dior Rouge Brilliant Lipgloss

Dior Rouge Brilliant Lipgloss ($35.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) released a few months ago as a new formula from the brand. The new formula is supposed to be a “long-wearing, couture lip balm gloss” that is supposed to “dispense just the right amount” with its “pen-like applicator” that is hydrating. As far as color coverage is concerned, there is a lot of marketing speak, and best I can surmise is… your mileage may vary, since it is the “perfect dose” and “the right touch of vibrant color.” I bought six shades to test out, and across all six, color coverage is semi-opaque, so there’s some translucency but noticeable color on the lips, but the stronger your natural lip color is, the more it may impact how the color translates on your lips. The gloss has a smooth, lightly thickened gel-like consistency that feels plush and covers fairly evenly on average; it doesn’t feel heavy, but it has that jelly-like consistency of balm. They’re moderately hydrating–less than the best balm, better than the average gloss–with a high-shine finish. They’re non-sticky, which makes them comfortable to wear and easier to smooth out. The formula is noticeably rose-scented, though not as intense as the Fluid Addicts, so I don’t normally notice it as a taste, just a scent. The lasting power is three to five hours, which is good for a gloss as non-sticky as this. All six of the shades I tried had a very faint pearl to them, which is definitely there, but it’s hard to really see the impact of the pearl on the lips from a normal viewing distance.

Dior Swan (263) Rouge Brilliant Lipgloss ($35.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a fine dusting of gold pearl. It had semi-opaque coverage with minimal settling into lip lines (more noticeable on my upper lip) that lasted for four hours and was moderately hydrating. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dior Hollywood (688) Rouge Brilliant Lipgloss ($35.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a slightly muted, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and fine gold pearl. It applied somewhat evenly without pulling into lip lines and yielded semi-opaque coverage. It lasted for four and a half hours and was hydrating while worn. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dior Rose Harpers (766) Rouge Brilliant Lipgloss ($35.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is reddish-fuchsia with slight cool undertones and a fine pink pearl. It settled into lip lines and had a tendency to look almost like a stain at times. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered evenly without looking streaky. The gloss wore well for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dior Darling (775) Rouge Brilliant Lipgloss ($35.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is light-medium, coral-pink with subtle, warm undertones and fine white pearl. It had semi-oapque pigmentation, though it was one of the lesser pigmented shades of the six. It lasted for four and a half hours and was hydrating, but it didn’t apply as evenly as I would have liked. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dior Soho (888) Rouge Brilliant Lipgloss ($35.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a brightened, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, violet pearl. It had semi-opaque coverage that went on fairly evenly, though there was a little settling into lip lines, but it was hard to notice from a normal viewing distance. The color lasted for five hours and was hydrating over time. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dior 999 Rouge Brilliant Lipgloss ($35.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is an orange-red with warm undertones and a delicate gold pearl. It had semi-opaque color payoff that went on fairly smoothly and evenly with very slight settling into lip lines. I didn’t find the settling to be noticeable except very up-close. The color stayed on well for five hours, and the formula felt moisturizing. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dior Coral Sunset (002) Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Blush
Dior Coral Sunset (002) Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Blush

Dior Coral Sunset (002) Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Blush ($57.00 for 0.35 oz.) is described as a “blend of orangey and effervescent coral hues.” It’s a muted, medium peach-orange with a satin finish. Tarte Fame (LE, $26.00) is darker, more matte. Colour Pop Bonus (P, $8.00) is cream. MAC Love & Laughter (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery. Makeup Geek Summer Fling (P, $9.99) is darker. Makeup Geek Bliss (P, $9.99) is a smidgen lighter. bareMinerals Swoon (LE, $19.00) is pinker. MAC Melba (P, $21.00) is darker. MAC Immortal Flower (LE, $21.00) is pinker. Giorgio Armani Coral Bliss (LE) is pinker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

It’s a new, limited edition variation available for summer in a hefty, metal compact. It’s a multi-hued powder that includes white, pink, peach, and orange, but none of the parts are large, so the most practical way to use it is swirled together, which yielded that peachy-orange hue as swatched. The powder was finely-milled and smooth, but it was powdery and looked a little dry on the skin. It had medium coverage that was somewhat buildable, but it didn’t stick as well to skin, so I really had to pack it on to get enough to stay in place. I would recommend applying this over a cream blush or as a cream/liquid-based foundation was drying to maximize color payoff. It lasted for seven hours on me.

Dior Jardin (456) Eyeshadow Palette
Dior Jardin (456) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Jardin (456) Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.21 oz.) is one of the more recently released quints, and it is part of the permanent range as far as I know. I picked it up awhile ago when I initially was trying out the new range, and it seemed promising when swatched, but there’s a dryness to the formula that can make it difficult to blend and apply on bare skin. Over primer, it’s easier to work with, but it’s still not a formula I’d reach for or would feel comfortable recommending. As they have a drier, dusty kind of texture, they tend to sheer out on the skin or look dry and fade more quickly.

Jardin #1 is a light-medium, neutral-to-warm-toned sage green with a soft, metallic shimmer-sheen finish. It had good color payoff, but the texture was a smidgen on the dry side, so it sheered out readily on the lid. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me before fading. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Jardin #2 is a brightened beige with a frosted finish and subtle warm undertones, though it tended to read almost cool-toned on me. It had good pigmentation that applied decently, but it was also a little dry to work with. It had started to look faded after seven hours of wear. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Jardin #3 is a medium-dark, khaki green with warm, olive undertones and a frosted finish. It had nice color payoff with a moderately dry, thin consistency that had faded noticeably after seven hours of wear. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Jardin #4 is a brightened, pinky-white with a frosted sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a soft, smooth texture that adhered well to the skin. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Jardin #5 is a deepened, almost blackened blue with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It swatched really beautifully with rich color payoff, but the texture was dry, and I had trouble with blending it out; it tended to just stick where it was initially applied. It did wear better than other shades at eight hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
