Dior Constellation (864) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Constellation (864) Eyeshadow Palette ($61.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a purple-themed palette that consists of five eyeshadows with star patterns on four of the five shades. It’s part of the fall collection, Mystic Metallics, and is limited edition and exclusive to Nordstrom.  Overall, the palette was fairly good, with the center shade (the pink one) being the “worst” performer as just a so-so eyeshadow, as the color payoff was sheerer.  If you like your purples slightly warmer, this might be a palette that will interest you.  My favorite shade was #1 (upper left corner), as it’s a shade that isn’t readily duped, and it’s a versatile color.  I wore #3 on the inner third of the lid, #2 in the middle of lid, #4 on the outer lid, #1 in the crease and above the crease, and #5 directly in the crease.  All five eyeshadows lasted eight hours well (no primer), and there was only some slight fading after nine hours.

Constellation (864) #1 is a cool-toned, gray-tinged purple with a satin finish. It had nice color payoff and a soft, finely-milled texture. MAC Tropica is brighter, less gray. Tom Ford Enchanted #3 is warmer. NARS Flowers 1 #2 is slightly darker. MAC Look at the Eyes is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Constellation (864) #2 is a sparkling, golden pewter with a metallic finish. It is the sparkliest shade out of the five, but it binds well together and applies smoothly without causing fall out. MAC Greenluxe #2 is lighter, more golden. MAC Antique Diamond is darker, cream. See comparison swatches. I thought it was going to be easier to dupe, but shades I thought would be similar were much darker.

Constellation (864) #3 is a subtly warm-toned, iridescent pale pink with a metallic finish. It had decent to good color payoff and applied smoothly. MAC Joy & Laughter #1 is more frosted. MAC Seedy Pearl is pinker. MAC Young Venus is similar. MAC Maribu is more metallic. See comparison swatches.

Constellation (864) #4 is a medium-dark, shimmery purple with hints of plum and pink. It had fairly good color payoff, and while the texture had a metallic dryness to it, it was still blendable and buildable on the lid. Urban Decay Tornado is darker. theBalm All the Way Annie is less pink. MAC Plush is less shimmery, warmer. Urban Decay Freakshow is a touch brighter. Urban Decay Vice is similar. MAC Highly Charged is less shimmery, cream. Guerlain Attrape-Coeur #3 is similar, pinker. See comparison swatches.

Constellation (864) #5 is a muted, gray-mauve with a pearly finish–there is a very fine dusting of rose gold micro-shimmer that gives it a slight glow. It had nice pigmentation and had a soft, smooth feel. Clinique Lavish Lilac is cooler-toned, cream. Tom Ford Enchanted #3 is lighter. Illamasqua Queen of the Night is darker. Urban Decay Rapture is purpler, darker. NARS 413 BLKR #1 is similar. MAC Tendersmoke is similar. MAC Joy & Laughter #2 is grayer. MAC Smoky Mauve is pinker. Giorgio Armani #27 is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Dior Bonne Etoile (384) Eyeshadow Palette
Dior Bonne Etoile (384) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Bonne Etoile (384) Eyeshadow Palette ($61.00 for 0.21 oz.) consists of five eyeshadows with star patterns on four of the five shades. It’s part of the fall collection, Mystic Metallics, and is limited edition. Right now, Nordstrom still has it available, but it is on backorder (I bought mine at Nordstrom). It’s a very nice palette overall with good color payoff across all five shades, and those that seemed good (but not perfect) were buildable on the lid. I really had no trouble applying this, and over bare skin (no primer), they lasted a full eight hours. I saw minor fading after nine hours, and if you normally wear your eyeshadow with a primer, I think you’d be fine for truly all-day wear.

Bonne Etoile (384) #1 is a warm-toned, olive green with gold, copper, and emerald green micro-shimmer. It had a pearly finish–not quite frosted. The color payoff was excellent, and the texture was and smooth. Urban Decay Zodiac is greener, more metallic. MAC Vintage Coin is similar but a cream product. MAC Humid is greener. MAC Greensmoke is slightly less warm-toned. L’oreal Golden Emerlad is much greener. Lancome Designer is less warm-toned. See comparison swatches.

Bonne Etoile (384) #2 is a silvered pewter with a metallic, sparkling finish. It had nice color payoff, and though it seemed almost glittery, the sparkles are finer and smoothed together well. Tom Ford Emerald Lust #1 is lighter. MAC Palladium is slightly darker and a cream product. Dior Garden Rosese #4 is darker. Sugarpill Tiara is darker. See comparison swatches.

Bonne Etoile (384) #3 is a warm-toned, olive brown with a satin finish. It had very nice pigmentation and applied evenly and smoothly. Disney Abu is darker. Urbn Decay Snakebite is less golden. NARS Paramaribo #2 is more golden. Giorgio Armani #6 is similar. Dior Golden Savannah #4 is darker. bareMinerals Elitist is lighter. Inglot #409 is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Bonne Etoile (384) #4 is a muted, darkened blue-teal with a metallic finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, and it was buildable–the texture is just slightly dry, but not dry in a stiff, difficult-to-work-with kind of way, just the type of dry that you might find with very metallic finishes. Urban Decay Shattered is much lighter. Urban Decay Hijack is very similar. MAC Emerald Dusk is bluer, more muted. Guerlain Les Aquas #1 is much darker and matte. Sugarpill Magpie is brighter, bluer. See comparison swatches.

Bonne Etoile (384) #5 is a soft, meadowy green with a strong, golden metallic sheen. It had good color payoff and a smooth, even application. Disney Cinderelly is warmer, less shimmery. MAC Sweet & Sour is darker. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #3 is warmer. See comparison swatches.
