Dior Fall 2013 Mystic Metallics 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Bonne Étoile (384) Photos Swatch
How happy am I??
After reading through Pixiwoo and RAEviewer’s blog posts about this palette. I knew I would have to own this… Bonne Etoile being such a gorgeous palette with cute embossed stars pattern, it would be the ideal brand introductory item for me! :p
On Monday, I went into House of Fraser (UK department store similar to Norstorm in the US) to get colour matched with a sample of the Dior Nude BB cream. Out of curiously, I asked the friendly Dior counter lady about their new eye palettes. To my astonishment, she said they have a few of these new collection items in stock, and offered to sell me one ahead of the launch this coming Friday 😀 I was over the moon!!
Yup, got myself my first Dior eye product, I spent the rest of my shopping trip grinning like a Cheshire cat!
Anyway here are the quick swatches for you! 4 out of 5 colours are very pigmented, creamy smooth… I can’t tell you how long these lasts etc. as I have only had this for a day and not worn it yet! But I would expect a lot from Dior! I am a NYX and UD fan, so it would be nice to try another brand.
Shade 1. The middle one, this is a nice warm dark chocolate brown with gold shimmer. Not glitter!
Shade 2. Top right, this is a sparkly silver taupe shimmer shadow. Very pigmented and catches the light very well. The swatch was easy to capture.
Shade 3. Bottom right, light sea green in the pan. This is the least pigmented shadow in the palette. Very hard to even pick up enough to swatch this for you. But this colour is so dreamy sea-green like… I have a NYX Seafoam green which is brighter in green tone and more pigmented.
Shade 4. Top left, dark khaki green with gold shimmer. Unbelievably pigmented and soft! I love this colour!
Shade 5. Bottom left, deep peacock blue, awww…colours can be this beautiful!!?
Very happy! Dior lady said I should also get the Constellation (864) palette as the purple will look fab with brown eyes. ok, one at a time. I can contain my excitement already 😛 Let me play with this palette first I’d say 😉 But the colours in this palette is just out of this world KINDA beautiful!
If you are from the US, this palette is already out in Normstorm as exclusive until end of August.
If you are in the UK, head to your nearest Dior counter this Friday (16th August 2013) and be very very merry! They are launching the whle collection and relaunching their blushers in new packaging and new formulas 😀
Availability: House of Fraser, Debenhams, Boots online (and flagship stores) and your nearest Dior counter 😀
