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).
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.
