Dior House of Pinks Eyeshadow Palette
Dior House of Pinks Eyeshadow Palette

Dior House of Pinks Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a pink-hued palette with five shades ranging from pink-tinted ivory to mauve. Despite having continual poor luck with the quality in Dior’s palettes, I remain a glutton for punishment and bought both of the new spring palettes. I wasn’t impressed with House of Pinks due to its drier, unforgiving texture–it made my entire lid space look dry. I thought Monochrome was frustrating to work with (I tested both simultaneously, one on each eye), but Monochrome didn’t emphasize texture nearly as much, despite being more powdery (I guess that’s the where the silkiness came into play). The consistency of the eyeshadows was generally firmer and drier, while the color payoff ranged from semi-sheer to semi-opaque. They were harder to apply to bare skin, as they didn’t want to stick, and only one shade performed decently. It’s yet another palette that reminds me of why Dior’s palettes are a “look but don’t touch” situation more often than not. Dior palettes are best at inspiring me to try a new color combination, but I should know better by now to create it with anything but Dior’s own palette.

House of Pinks #1 is a gold-shimmered, pink-white with a frosted finish. It had a dustiness to it that made it a pain to work with, and it seemed to really be one of the worst offenders when it came to exacerbating the texture of my natural lid (which looks fine with the majority of the eyeshadows I have ever used). It lasted for five and a half hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

House of Pinks #2 is a pale, pink-tinted white with a matte finish. It was semi-sheer with a very powdery, dusty texture that was prone to fading and didn’t apply evenly. It lasted for five hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

House of Pinks #3 is a brightened pop of cool-toned, light-medium pink with a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff but was rather dusty and almost chalky, and it barely showed up on the lid. It really needed to be pressed into the skin and packed on for any visible color, but none of it stuck. It just seemed to fade immediately. The washed-out version of it that remained after the initial five minutes stayed in its sad state for six hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

House of Pinks #4 is a mauve-y taupe brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a slightly firm, dry texture. It lasted for seven hours on me before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

House of Pinks #5 is a dark, eggplant purple with subtle, warm brown undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a drier, dustier texture that applied unevenly. It creased after six hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
