Lucky Star

Dior Lucky Star High Fidelity Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday palette featuring gold, orange, and brown with four shades being rather shimmery and one being more satin to matte. This palette was more of a mixed bag, though none of the shades were total misses, so I think it would be more about expectations, application style, and preferences on whether this is a winner or not.

Lucky Star #1

Lucky Star #1 is a medium orange with warm, yellow undertones and sparkling, golden shimmer over a metallic sheen. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, while the texture was soft, smooth, and dense without being firm or thick. The eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely. It wore well for eight hours on me before I noticed a bit of fading.

Lucky Star #2

Lucky Star #2 is a pale, white gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had excellent pigmentation with a smooth, soft, and blendable texture that felt a smidgen dry to the touch but did not apply that way and seemed to “melt” on my skin after sitting on it for a minute. It stayed on well for eight hours before it started to fade on me.

Lucky Star #3

Lucky Star #3 is a medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque with a dry brush without primer, but it needed primer or to be applied with a dampened brush to get to full coverage. The texture was drier and had larger sparkles to it, so it had a grittier feel compared to the other four shades (but it wasn’t enough that it felt gritty/chunky). There was some fallout when initially applied, and then there was a bit more over the seven and a half hours it lasted for.

Lucky Star #4 is a medium brown with warm, golden undertones and a pearly sheen. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, while the texture felt smooth, blendable, and was dense without being stiff. It applied evenly to bare skin and stayed on well for eight hours on me.

Lucky Star #5

Lucky Star #5 is a medium-dark, plummy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had a slightly stiffer consistency in the pan, and it applied a few shades lighter on my skin than it appeared in the pan. It had good coverage in a single layer, and if I layered the product, it seemed to deepen in hue a bit (though never quite as intense as the pan color). The eyeshadow blended out fairly well, but it could have been easier to work with. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Maybe not quite as stellar as gray-silver quint, but I still think it looks beautiful! It reminds me a little bit of Viseart Minx in its color scheme. For that reason alone, I’m not going to bother with it, because I do have and enjoy using Minx!

Not anything particularly unique about this quint. I usually pick up at least one or two Dior quints per year and think I will wait on something I like better. I picked up the Holiday 2017 and can’t remember the other one I got last year but remember it being more neutral so I think I am looking for a brighter colour story. I do like Dior shadows for myself. I like that I can get really wearable looks and really don’t have to work too hard to get them to blend. They tend to need building up rather than laying down a completely opaque colour in one pass and for my eyes, that is better.

Hi Genevieve,
Thank you for asking. It has taken a little to recuperate, LOL. I am not sure I would ever do it that way again or recommend it to anyone else my age. Luckily my daughter was there to help me or I wouldn’t have made it! Didn’t have too much trouble adjusting to the time change/jet lag going either direction. For me the 12 hour flight back was a killer and I would never do that again. I would find a way to break the flight up. There is nothing quite like being stuck in a metal cigar tube, 38,000 feet in the air and with four sets of children under the age of 5. I felt sorry for the parents but also for us passenger’s. One of the children cried for about 4 hours straight and the mother actually had noise cancelling earphones on which didn’t help the rest of us. I hadn’t thought to bring any because I can normally sleep through a typhoon but was wishing I had some by the end. I think the biggest issue was leaving my wallet in the plane on the last leg of our trip which was from Portland, Oregon to Missoula, Montana. It is just under 2 hours and I had placed my wallet in the seat pocket in front of my seat to help my daughter get our bags into the overhead bin. I completely forgot I had put it there and thought I had put it back into my carry-on bag. We landed in Missoula and went to get the car out of long term parking and I immediately realized I didn’t have my wallet. My daughter ran back inside and left me with the luggage. She didn’t come back and after about 25 minutes I went in to find her. She was standing at the Alaska Airlines counter and was being helped by an agent. Long story short, Alaska Airlines really needs to work on their lost possession policy, educating their personnel and customer service. So, I came home, cancelled credit cards, cancelled my passport and didn’t do anything about my license and I am glad I didn’t because they found my wallet and sent it to me today. Mind you, I got back on the 3rd. Fourteen days without hearing anything. It was such an easy solve if they had just called the plane when my daughter got to the counter as the plane had not left on it’s return leg. The agent told my daughter not to worry as they have to do a “sweep” of the plane before it can take off so we were thinking it was going to come to the counter any time. Of course, they were wrong. The plane only gets swept once every 24 hours at it’s final location for the night unless it is leaving U.S. airspace. Even then, I thought we would hear they found it that same night or the next day. I knew exactly where it was. When we tried calling them they basically, “Don’t call us, we’ll call you, and only if we find it.” That didn’t happen either since they obviously found it quite some time ago. Anyway, that has been a pain to deal with and it is done now so I can relax and enjoy my memories!!

This is nice, but unoriginal, to say the least. The shades are cohesive and whilst there weren’t any complete duds, I don’t think it is as good as Moonchild from yesterday.
