Dior Rose Garden (451) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Rose Garden (451) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for spring. The eyeshadow formula feels different than their standard, permanent eyeshadow formula but similar to the formula used in the limited edition holiday palettes–more in the vein of MAC Extra Dimension and NARS Dual Intensity–but I couldn’t find anything from Dior that indicated these are actually wet/dry, though for your perusal, I swatched them both dry (left) and damp (right), so this review only covers dry application. I think that the eyeshadows perform much better damp, though, or with primer, as they run crumbly and/or powdery, so they tended to look a little dry or uneven applied to the lid as-is.

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.
