This’ll Make You Do a Double Take

Dior Night Golds Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a limited edition palette for the holidays that consists of five shades of eyeshadow. It will be available in October.

The first shade is a warm, subdued white-beige with a frosted finish. It had good color payoff and was very soft, smooth, and finely-milled. This shade was a little stark as a highlighter against my medium-colored skin (no effect on rating, just a note). MAC White Frost is similar but not as warm-toned. theBalm Tempting Tara is more metallic. theBalm Envious Erin is a smidgen golden. Tarina Tarantino Lovely is similar.

Next (on the upper right), there is a light-medium copper-shimmered bronze with a strong metallic finish and larger shimmer particles. It almost looks wet when applied and smoothed out. It had decent to good pigmentation. When I applied it on the lid, I didn’t experience any post-application fall out and only had some fall out during application. Urban Decay Penny Lane is more orange, slightly darker. Bare Escentuals Golden Iris is darker and more orange. Tarina Tarantino Wonderful is darker. Bare Escentuals Louder is a touch more bronze.

The center shade is a rich, burgundy-tinged deep brown with flecks of champagne sparkle. The color was very intense and easy to apply, and it went on smoothly. Guerlain Emilio Pucci is a bit darker, richer. Tarina Tarantino Wonderful is browner, less burgundy. Urban Decay Busted is a bit lighter. Dior Couture Gold had a shade that looked similar but performed much worse. NARS Ponderosa is similar but a cream. Wet ‘n’ Wild We’re Blasting Off is more purple. Wet ‘n’ Wild Comfort Zone is similar. MAC Smut is a touch blacker.

The fourth shade (on the lower left) is a lightened yellowy gold with a frosted, metallic finish. The texture was soft, buttery , and it applied smoothly with excellent color payoff. MAC Sweet & Sour is a bit darker. Dior Couture Gold is similar. Urban Decay Blunt is similar, perhaps a touch lighter.

The last shade (on the lower right) is a pale champagne-bronze with a metallic finish. It looks almost taupe-like in the pan, but it doesn’t seem to have much gray in it when swatched. It had a soft, finely-milled texture that translated into a nicely pigmented shade. Dior Couture Gold is darker. Bobbi Brown Bronze is more antique gold-hued. Urban Decay Echo Beach is darker, less golden. Dior Couture Gold is more yellow/orange. Bobbi Brown Desert Sand is similar.

All in all, this palette is definitely similar to last year’s Couture Gold — dupe for dupe? No, not exactly, but there are certainly some overlapping shades and similarities. At a glance, the only difference is instead of a sparkly light gold, there’s a sparkly copper. I like this year’s better, as the quality across the five shades is much higher across the board with none of these shades having problems.  When I tested the palette on the eye, it wore for eight hours with no creasing or fading.

Hmm…the three gold-ish shades are a bit too similar to have all in one palette for my taste. I thought that lower right hand shade was going to more brown than gold by how it looked in the pan. I had to scroll up and down to check I was looking at the right swatch three times because I couldn’t believe it.

That second color is so nice though. It reminds me of how shiny and reflective the Armani ETK are.

What a gorgeous brown! I’m still trying to hunt down Comfort Zone (Wet ‘n’ Wild is definitely IN Canada, somewhere, but the displays are always a mess), but if they’re that similar… well. I wonder if I could find the dupe online 😀

I third the Walmart find! I couldn’t find Petal pusher or whatever it is with the purples but I purchased the other two at walmart. That’s the only place I have found in the GTA that carries the larger Wet n Wild palettes.

And yes, I find the displays are always a mess too!

These colors look gorgeous on you very pretty..do you know the exact day they will be launched? And will they be at sephora? Nordstrom and Macy’s counters? I am def going to try and get me one it will be my first Dior pallete love these colors!!! Thank you so much -cristine

Dior dosen’t give specific dates – the press release only listed Dior, but I’m guessing the holiday collection will be available at Dior counters/retailers, but some products may be exclusive to Nordstrom or Sephora.

Thanks for your answer!! Which would you recommend between this Dior palette and the bronze amour by Lancôme ? I don’t have any Dior palette or Lancôme or would you recommend both for any differences they might have? I’d appreciate your input!!! Thanks

Hi Christine! Will you be reviewing the Fairy Gold palette as well? I think that one would be more suitable for my skin tone. (Strawberry blonde hair, blue eyes, light skin) Thank you very much!!

I thought I would take both palettes but the swatches, well it’s not so pretty. I’ll get 1 nail polish instead. Grand Bal is very lovely on the whole but I can create such a look as yours with other palettes. Maybe the other palette will be for me ?

It’s pretty but, to me, it’s not special enough to pay $59. It just doesn’t scream out to me for some reason. Perhaps because the colours would be too warm for my skin tone.

Hey, it’s your other eye (usually, your photos are of what appears to be your left eye; this is your right eye!). This palette is gorgeous and if I weren’t already loaded down with eyeshadows, and several that are very similar to these, and if I weren’t trying to buy less, I’d buy THIS!

My Macy’s Dior manager said they are definitively not getting either eyeshadow palette. They are getting the manicure/brush set, lip and eye palettes, lashes, Grand Bal, and lipsticks/polishes. Not sure if Nordstrom will be getting any, but she suggested i buy online if I want either eye quint.

This is definitely not something that I need. The shades do look pretty though. It’s nice that it got a A-. I tried out the Khaki Dior Palette after being so impressed with how it looked on you, Christine. I was so disappointed in the quality. For the price, you would think that the quality would be excellent.

I just bought this palette yesterday and I am already in LOVE with it. I saw it at Dillard’s a few days back and knew that I had to have it! I truly am impressed with how long it stays on (longer than any other designer eyeshadow I’ve used) and how well the color shows up on my olive-colored face. It’s a bit pricey, but come on… It’s limited a edition and every lady is well worth it!

pixiwoo just did a tutorial with this (blake lively)… came here too see if I own some dupes… no… will have to get this palette!! Thanks for the reliable reviews!
