FOTD: Christian Dior 5 Color Eyeshadow #169 Purple Crystal
I picked this palette up at the last Dior sale with the help of HS and Im so glad I got it! Have worn the palette several times and I really liked it 😀
I apologize for the bad quality and washed-out picture 😦 Natural lighting was a bitch at 5pm in the evening.
Christian Dior 5 Couleurs Iridescent Palette 169 Purple Crystal
The colours are pearlescent and gives off a subtle sheen on the eye that is only detectable up close. From far, the shimmer is very soft.
The swatches were quite heavy because even though the colours are super smooth and buttery, they tend to be quite sheer on first swipe so a good base is definitely required.
For blush I used the ELF Studio Line Blusher in Peachy Keen:
This is a nice natural blush suitable for day time or with heavy eye looks. It is very chalky, powdery and sheer though but I can’t complain because of the price point. The packaging looks awfully similar to NARS but the texture and product leaves much to be desired.
I don’t regret getting this but the more I use the more I find that it’s not even worth the USD3 I paid for this.
This was a heavy swatch and you can tell that it doesn’t even show up much on my skin. It’s a lovely peachy colour with golden shimmers in it. I don’t recommend piling this on because the gold shimmer shows up way too obviously and it looks like crap against my already-yellow skin.
It reminds me of the gold shimmer in NARS Albatross (which I bought and regretted terribly).
