Dior Eternal Gold (576) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Eternal Gold (576) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a limited edition palette for the holidays. It was less impressive than Blazing Gold, but it wasn’t the worst Dior palette I’ve tried either, so I guess there’s that. I like the color concept (which is the norm for Dior!), but I wish these were less dusty/dry overall.

Dior Blazing Gold (886) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Blazing Gold (886) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.25 oz.) is one of two, limited edition holiday quints available this year. The formula looked like it might be comparable to my beloved Bonne Etoile, but alas, it was not so. I think it ended up being better than some of the recent Dior palettes, but it isn’t without its issues. It seemed like a wet/dry formula when I was trying it, but I couldn’t find anything on Dior’s site about wearing it damp/wet, so the ratings reflect dry application only.

Dior Diorkiss, Fashion Night, Be Dior Dior Addict Lipsticks

Dior Dior Addict Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) was recently reformulated and relaunched for fall with a large variety of shades. I bought three to try, which are reviewed below. The updated formula is supposed to have “intense color” with a “long-lasting top coat” for greater shine and longer wear. I can only speak based on the three I tried, but the coverage is more semi-sheer to semi-opaque, lightweight and a little clingy, with natural shine. They wear three to four hours and are lightly hydrating. I was surprised to discover that they were unscented (and also had no taste), as I associate Dior lip products as usually being perfumed. The texture is more balm-like, and they soften as they melt against the warmth of the lips, but they never really drag or tug, even initially. I actually quite liked them as a lip product, but I was completely surprised that they weren’t marketed as more buildable/medium-coverage products, so if you like your lip color sheerer, you may like these, but if you were drawn in by the promise of intense or “high-impact” color, I’d look elsewhere.
