Dior Summer 2011: Rosy Tan (754) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Rosy Tan (754) Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.21 oz.) is the companion quint to Rosy Nude–they read almost day and night to me. They’re similar yet not the same. Rosy Tan is darker and deeper overall, but it also has cooler undertones.

The top left shade is a lightened cotton candy pink with subtle blue undertones and a white shimmered finish. To the right of that shade, there is a dark, burgundied brown with a satin sheen. On the bottom right, we have a dirty, bronzy brown with a reflective, metallic sheen. Beside it, there is a soft, rose-tinted beige brown with a pearled finish. In the center, there is a brightened pink-tinged white with a shiny, metallic finish. I found the rosy beige to be just a hair sheer, while the center shade was a touch sheerer than that, though both still had good color pay off (think about the difference between good and excellent–noticeable but not necessarily a deal breaker).

A-
Like Rosy Nude, these eyeshadows feel like silky on, glide on smoothly, and have nice pigmentation throughout. This palette works better for more dramatic looks, but the inclusion of three softer shades still means there are plenty of subtle combinations available.

Dior Summer 2011: Rosy Nude Palette

Dior Rosy Nude (634) Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.21 oz.) is one of two new (and possibly limited edition–I’m still trying to get confirmation either way) quints, and they are part of this summer’s Electric Tropics Collection.

It contains five shades: high shimmered white (with a touch pink warmth); soft, champagne shimmered beige; medium brown with subtle red undertones and soft bronze shimmer; iridescent peach-pink with a frosted, metallic finish; and cotton candy pink with blue undertones with a glowing sheen. All five shades were soft, silky smooth, and nicely pigmented (everything swatched very true-to-pan). You can check out the look I did earlier this week to see it in action! :)

I’m always hesitant about Dior’s eyeshadow quints, because sometimes they’re amazing and other times, I’m unimpressed, but both summer quints (the other I will review later) are really lovely. The texture is buttery and smooth–not too soft–but still very silken against the skin where it lays down easily and blends out effortlessly.

I also love how the colors coordinate with each other. This is definitely a softer, more neutral color palette, but the shimmer and frost in the finishes gives the colors more pop. I think it could have used a semi-matte or matte shade (perhaps the medium brown), but otherwise, it’s perfect for summer. It should work well with bolder lip combos as corals and oranges abound this season.

It's very appropriate for summer--it has just enough warmth to give it that lit-from-within glow without being too warm for cooler and more neutral skin tones to wear well. The colors work well together, which will make this easy to travel with. Great textures and pigmentation make this one worth checking out!
