Christian Dior Rosy Tan 5-Colour Eyeshadow Palette
Some of the palettes are a hit or a miss pigmentation-wise, but I’ve had very positive experiences with Dior so far. I love their buttery soft texture, blendability and luminous finish.
Believe it or not, I’ve had my Urban Decay Naked Palette for quite some time now, and I barely ever reach for it. And honestly, I’m not even sure why. There is a decent selection of colors and all, but it’s definitely a highly raved product that doesn’t get much love from me on a weekly basis.
I’m very “pro” convenience/low-maintenance products, and I find the convenience of the Dior 5-color palettes very appealing. They are housed in a very sturdy mirrored compact and contain 5 shades of shadow that compliment each other for a variety of looks. They also contain two double-sided applicators, which believe it or not – I actually use each time I use my Dior palettes. One side of the sponge is large for applying color all over the lid, and the other side is smaller for lining the eyes and/or applying color through the crease. It’s everything you need, in a small compact.
Rosy Tan contains a warm brown with fine gold shimmer, a light pink pearl, a velvety taupe-brown, a silvered metallic brown and an icy champagne-pink pearl. All of the shades work very well together for a soft, neutral look. I’m especially loving the middle shade – it’s probably the prettiest color I own for an inner-corner and brow bone highlight. My second favorite shade from the palette is probably the silvery brown on the bottom left.
I really do like this palette, but the only thing I’d probably change is to make the darkest brown a little deeper so I can create a more intense eye. I still feel the need to add an additional deep brown (such as Nars Mekong) or a black shadow to darken my crease. I doubt I’ll get too much use out of the pink, but I’m sure I’ll be using all of the other shades pretty often. I still have yet to play around with this palette though, as I’ve only worn it twice so far. I can definitely see this being one of my “go-to” palettes to create a quick look on the go.
Both times wearing this palette I didn’t use a base, and the colors seemed to last well throughout the day with minimal fading after 6 hours.
