Dior’s Goldfever Quint | I love Dior quints for their versatility and how the colors pair so well together. I’m a sucker for golds, so this quint is especially (well, hell, the whole collection) to my taste.  Subtle summer shimmers will work well for easy day time looks and even for subdued evening eyes. The gray-mauve and berry-mauve are both deep and dark enough to work as crease colors or to create smoky eyes. My only complaint is that the level of frost in the finish is a bit high to be universally appealing–I’m okay with it, but I do find that sometimes I’ll opt to use a different color (not from the quint) for highlighting my brow.

Givenchy’s Prismissime Mat & Glow in Harmony #72 | A small compact palette in checkboard style that features nine squares of color. The first and third columns are matte colors, while the second column consists of shimmery choices. For summer, Givenchy offers Harmony #71 for fairer complexions, while #72 is for warmer/tanner complexions (like mine). I like that they’re separated, because it gives you the opportunity to use them alone, rather than together, but because they are also close together, you could also gently sweep a blush brush over it for an all-over color. The palette can be used on eyes, cheeks, face, or even your decolletage, making it very versatile and multi-tasking. This gives me a nice light bronze on cheeks, and the shimmer lets me highilght cheekbones precisely or lighten up a deeper summer bronze.

    we just received the collection today in store, and it is FABULOUS. I’m so excited about this collection. My only qualm is that we DIDN’T GET THE START PRODUCT (the jewel!) I don’t know if we’re going to be getting it in North America? I heard that department stores didn’t get it either…
