Dior Golden Flower Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new and limited edition palette for the holiday season that features five, warm-toned eyeshadows. It’s a good palette overall, though it has some room for improvement. The one consistent issue I had was that all the shades were a little powdery–almost dry–but color payoff was still good throughout. The other downside is that it is a more dupable palette, so since it doesn’t perform at the top-level, it’s not compelling.  Four of the five shades wore well for eight and a half hours without creasing–the center shade, which is glittery, had some minor fall out over time.

Golden Flower #1 is a pale, pinky-peach with a yellow-y gold frost shimmer. It had fairly good color payoff, and the texture was very soft and finely-milled, though it was also somewhat powdery. Laura Mercier Guava (P) is less golden. Too Faced Ringleader (LE) is less shimmery. Urban Decay X (P, $18.00) is very similar. See comparison swatches.

Golden Flower #2 is a pale, golden ivory with a frosted finish. It had a soft, buttery texture, but it was a smidgen powdery, though the color payoff was good. This is an easily duped shade–there are just so many of these that have come over the years; nice color but you may already have something like it! Tarina Tarantino Taurella (LE) is darker. Kat Von D Galore (LE) is similar. theBalm C1 (LE, $16.00) is similar. Disney by Sephora Charming (LE) is also similar. Disney by Sephora Sea Shells (LE) is similar. Urban Decay Vanilla (LE, $18.00) is also similar. MAC Vanilla (P, $21.00) is similar. MAC Nylon (P, $15.00) is slightly more metallic. See comparison swatches.

Golden Flower #3 is a pale, glittering gold with a metallic, sparkling finish. These shades are always somewhat sheer, which seems to be how they’re designed–almost like a layering shade. This one didn’t give me much fall out, which is always a good thing when you’re dealing with a glittery finish–minor but not too noticeable. MAC Greenluxe #2 (P) is similar. MAC Retrospeck (P, $15.00) is similar. Dior Golden Savannah #3 (LE) is also similar. Dior Fairy Golds #2 (LE) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Golden Flower #4 is a medium-dark bronze with a warm, golden frosted sheen. It had excellent color payoff, wasn’t powdery at all, and had such a lovely, buttery texture that made blending a cinch. Maybelline Downtown Brown (P, $6.99) is lighter. MAC Cognac (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Museum Bronze (P, $21.00) is warmer, darker. MAC Tempting (P, $15.00) is somewhat darker. Dior Golden Savannah #2 (LE) is less golden. See comparison swatches.

Golden Flower #5 is a medium-dark, reddish brown with a satin finish. It had decent color payoff, but the texture was a little drier and powdery compared to the rest. NARS Flowers 3 #4 (LE, $24.00) is similar. Chanel Raffinement #4 (P) is darker. See comparison swatches.
