I got my lovely aunt to pick something up for me from Duty Free and…she failed. She allegedly said that she thought she could buy it “on the plane” which at that point she presented me with some out of date Turkish Delight instead.
A month later she was on another holiday and this time I insisted that she buy the Dior palette BEFORE she boarded a plane…and she did!
Here is Dior 5 Couleurs Couture Colour Eyeshadow Palette 004 Mystic Smokys Swatches:
As usually Dior comes in a really beautiful, solid palette.
I have wanted Mystic Smokys for a long time. If you have seen of my hand made palettes then you’ll know i have this big problem of picking wholly impractical colours – either light or dark, no mid toned shades. So this palette, whilst impractical to many is great for me; 3 dark shades and 2 light.
There’s a beautiful metallic edge to the colours. We are looking at a purple metallic, a gumetal, a brown, a white and shimmery pink.
Overall the colours are all pigmented and soft, yes it’s a bit of a tricky one (no medium toned colours at all) and also the colours are someone spectacular when used alone (I wouldn’t wear purple and silver and brown together!!!) – it’s still a lovely palette.
