The Colors Palette for Face, Eyes and Lips is filled with 10 custom colors and four professional applicators tucked inside a graphic palette embossed with the personal crest of Christian Dior. The palette features a mattifying skin-perfecting powder; a pearly highlighter and coral blush to enhance the complexion; and a deep purple enhanced with a silver shadow; an illuminating touch of aqua green shadow; and a black eyeliner to define the eyes. An iridescent coral gloss and a powdery pink lipstick adorn your lips and four professional brushes make application a breeze.

Dior Golden Shock (756) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Golden Shock (756) Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0. 21 oz.) is a limited edition palette that features five shades in hues of pink, gold, plum, and purple. It performed better than Golden Reflections (0460), at least, though I’m not sold on it. It also seems to overlap with Trafalgar at a glance, though it isn’t quite one-for-one. The quality of this palette is decent to good, with the more problematic shade being the richer purple (which seemed better initially), as the texture was thinner and drier, so blending was more difficult without a smoothing base.

Dior Golden Reflections (046) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Golden Reflections (046) Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0. 21 oz.) is a limited edition palette that features five shades ranging from gray to gold to beige. I think Dior does interesting color combinations at times, but I find that too often the quality of their eyeshadows is lacking. If you prefer a softer, sheerer, more muted look out of shades like these, you may enjoy this palette. If you want more true-to-pan color, I would skip.

Dior Gold Rain (164) & Pink Excess (663) Addict Gloss

Dior Gold Rain (164) Addict Gloss ($29.50 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a sheer, white gold with light-medium gold shimmer and sparkle. It lasts for two and a half hours, though the lightweight, non-sticky, creamy consistency meant it was very comfortable and nicely hydrating during that time. The formula is supposed to be a sheerer, lightweight, hydrating, and high-shine gloss, and Dior delivers–it’s a matter of whether sheer is your thing (or not). MAC Pussywillow (LE, $15.00) is darker. Bobbi Brown Rose (LE, $24.00) is less golden. Guerlain Gold Tchlack (P, $30.00) has a clearer base. Dior Lame Gold (LE, $28.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
