For the past few weeks, I’ve been mooning over pretty eyeshadow palettes, and while I’m not sure that either Twilight or Moonlight is “the one” for me, Dior quints are smooth, pigmented, and pretty nice. Most of them seem designed to give you options — which is a good thing for travel. I’ve been swatching all the ones I could find, so stay tuned for more pictures.
You wouldn’t know it from this picture alone, but Earth Tones is actually fairly unusual: it doesn’t contain a white/highlighting shade. I think Dior has limited the “collectability” of these quints by putting the same (or similar) white shade into a lot of them.
My problem: I really like at least one shade in almost every Dior quint I’ve swatched. But I’m not a huge fan of pink or purple eyeshadow, so almost every quint also contains a shade (or two) that doesn’t thrill me.
A possible solution: Dior could make me a custom quint? Number 415 KarlaSugar? I can dream.
Dior quints are $54 each.
