Dior is pushing the envelope on one of their most beloved products with the release of limited edition “Designer” eyeshadow quints. These quints contain four shadows and a cream liner — intended, I think to be more of an all-in-one eye palette, and allowing you to “become the architect of your own beauty.”
Dior even goes so far as to suggest placement for each of the shades, but what it boils down to is you get three shades of eyeshadow, one glitter shade (top right), and a cream liner (bottom right). I’d like to add that the glitter shade isn’t just loose glitter — it almost feels like the glitter is set in a cream shadow, and has good “sticking” power. Oh, and you get a little angled liner brush on one of your applicators, but I imagine that the applicator is so short as to be a little difficult to use.
Jojoba at My Makeup Reviews recently reviewed, swatched, and did a gorgeous look with these — she also swatched the Asian-only 408 Green Design, so I really recommend taking a look.
