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.
