Dior Garden Roses Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Garden Roses Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a limited edition palette for spring that features five shades of pink, purple, and gray. Β The new palettes for spring are slightly lighter (0.16 oz. vs. 0.21 oz.) compared to other five-pan palettes, though everything looks to be about the same visually. Β The texture of the eyeshadows from spring have a drier feel to them, which might be an explanation for the discrepancy in quantity. Β When I trialed these eyeshadows on the eye (without primer), I managed eight hours with slight fading but no creasing.

The first shade is a soft, frosted pink with gold shimmer. It’s a yellow-based pink with decent to good color payoff but does have some underlying sheerness and a drier texture. It’s similar to MAC Taupeless. Inglot #431 is a bit lighter, no golden shimmer. Make Up For Ever #303 is also a few steps lighter.

The second shade, which is on the top right, is a pale pink-tinted white with a golden-white frosted finish. The color payoff with this shade was good, and it applied very smoothly. It’s whiter than Tarina Tarantino Diamond Dusk. It has more of a frosted finish compared to Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse. It’s similar to MAC Defiance.

In the middle, there is a red-toned medium-dark purple with a satiny sheen. It has good color payoff and a soft, smooth consistency. Estee Lauder Cyber Lilac is several shades darker. Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse is less metallic. MAC Plush is more vibrant. theBalm Kissy Kissy is less red-toned. Bare Escentuals Encore is very similar.

The fourth shade, on the bottom left, is a golden pewter–a little silver, gray, and gold all mixed together–with a frosted, metallic sheen. Inglot #431 and Make Up For Ever #303 are a bit more yellow-toned.

The last shade, on the bottom right, is a pink lilac with a metallic shimmer-sheen. It has decent to good color payoff but seems a bit sheer. It’s similar to MAC Palladium. Giorgio Armani #19 is more golden, lighter. Wet ‘n’ Wild Dancing in the Clouds is more golden.

not that impressed – way too much of a frosty effect.

the best thing about this palette is that YOUR look with it is absolutely lovely πŸ™‚

I contemplated this palate because I’m trying to find cooler-toned rose shades to make a smoky eye, but these were a little too light and shimmery. Pretty, but not what I was looking for.

Jennifer Avatar

I think that the Clinique Rosewine duo can be a good dupe for this quint as I made a similar look with it just today.

Thank you for the swatches Christine!! πŸ™‚

Certainly beautiful but the colors just don’t excite me as much as Garden Pastels. I think I can find dupes for these colors in my stash.

I think the palette is ooooh so pretty, it’s a shame all of the shades are so frosty. For me, it would have to be used with other matte/satin shadows. I really appreciate your review, as I’ve been so excited to see how this palette would turn out IRL (in real life).

Christine, I have a request, would you also put all of the swatches from the/any palette together on your arm so we could see them side by side like you used to? I really miss that view. Thanks so much! πŸ™‚

Emmm pretty colours in the case. The purple & the silver ones look reaallly pretty on swatches. The rest quite.. hmmm… not that impressive.
The overall look on ur eye looks very nice though.

I wouldn’t pay 59 for this, its way to shimmery and the colors do not look that pigmented when on the eye. Also the colors are probably dupe-able, and im pretty sure you can find the those exact shapes without all that shimmery mess.

Someone at the Dior counter did a look with this palette for me last week. I hated it! Way too shiny and shimmery for my taste. The colors are pretty and ‘springy’ but I felt like my lid was slapped with a ton of silver shadow.

I own this and I REALLY like it, but I am a “color on the eyes-a-phobe”… It would not be good for creating a made up eye since it’s so heavily shimmer, but for creating subtle sparkly washes it’s lovely. I generally do the purply pink as a wash all over the lid, a tiny bit of the purple in the crease, and the greenish silver dotted in the center to make the eye pop πŸ™‚ I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on it!

Wow. I bought this palette from Dior, too, and I love it!
The colours are so pretty.
Looks good with pink lips and ‘Waterlily’ nailpolish from Dior!
Great!
