Dior Smoky Eyeshadow Trios

Dior just released six permanent eyeshadow trios, and they are both practical and fabulous. Each compact slides open (and a mirror folds out) to reveal a large base color (the third swatch in each trio) and two accent colors — one more demure, the other a little flashier. The first shade (the first swatch/the top left color of each trio) sometimes had to be built up a little, but these shadows really deliver in terms of texture and pigmentation, and I think the color combinations are ones almost everyone would use and like.

091 Smoky Black includes a dark, sooty grey satin, a matte black with silver sparkles, and a shimmery, pearly, light elephant grey satin. I don’t normally go for smoky black eyeshadow palettes, but I like this one.

781 Smoky Brown offers a satin cool walnut brown, a shimmering chestnut, and a pearly, oystery beige satin.

571 Smoky Nude gives you a warm leather brown satin, a shimmering copper-bronze, and a pearly warm golden-white.

291 Smoky Navy was the most difficult to swatch — I don’t know if this was just an abused tester. Its shades are a blackened blue satin, a low-shimmer denim blue with blue, green, and silver sparkles, and an ice blue satin.

I think of 481 Smoky Khaki as the safari trio. It includes a deep olive green satin, a complex olive-brown shimmer, and a muted gold shimmer.

051 Smoky Pink includes a slightly purpled-grey matte, a purple-grey silver shimmer, and an opalescent whisper-pink satin.

    The lightest shade in the Smokey Khaki Trio looks gorgeous. It’s definitely my type of lid color. =)

    These are gorgeous. Khaki and Pink both caught my eye. Good thing they’re permanent since I’m on a no-buy right now!

  • Barbara says:

    I am really looking forward to buying some of these trios. I’m a huge fan of Dior’s quintet shadows – terrific texture, pigmentation and staying powder – just the best shadows on the market, in my opinion.
