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.
Golden Shock #1 is a rich, eggplant purple with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had good color payoff, but the texture wasn’t as blendable as desired for such a dark shade. It wore well for eight hours, though. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Golden Shock #2 is a medium brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nice pigmentation with a soft, blendable consistency that wasn’t difficult to use. The color didn’t start to fade until after eight hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Golden Shock #3 is a sparkling gold with warm, yellow undertones and a glittery finish. The texture feels almost wet and slick, and there’s some color in the base, though it isn’t fully opaque. I felt like you could wear this as a standalone eyeshadow, not just patted over the other shades. It wore well for almost eight hours but did have fall out over time. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Golden Shock #4 is a light, warm-toned pink with a mostly matte finish. It was somewhat powdery but didn’t have too much excess during application. It started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Golden Shock #5 is a muted, light-medium gold with a soft, frosted sheen. It had decent color payoff with a softer, smoother consistency. It wore well for eight hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
