Dior Eye Shadow Palette in 809 'Petal Shine' | Review & Swatches

Tuesday, 24 September 2013






Hello Ladies! There is something about Dior make up that makes me think its special. I'm not sure weather it's just the brand name, the amazing quality or the pretty colours they produce but Dior make up is definitely on a different level, with this palette being no exception. With the winter days well on it's way it's about time I started doing make up looks that fit that 'Autumn' look and to me, that means rich browns and deep purple smokey eyes. Berry and Purple looks are big this season but unfortunatly, I just can't pull off the 'Berry Lips' trend - it makes me look so washed out, so instead I am going with my take on the Berry theme and going for a light purple smokey eye with a nude lip as this is more flattering on my skin tone. 

The range of colours you get in this palette make it perfect for creating both day and night looks which is something I always look for in a palette as I don't want to be stuck with only one look. In the daytime I prefer to go for the light pink and the brown colour in the middle, while using the darker brown on the outer corner and to line my eye. I find that this works well as it's smokey enough to look wintery and adds depth to my eye look without being too dramatic and screaming 'look at me' When I use this palette to create an Autumn night-time look I tend to go for the lightest colour on my inner corner and the second lightest (the pink colour) all over my lid. Then I like to go really smokey with the purple and use a black liquid liner to create a cat flick. This looks great with big fluttery lashes and adds drama to any night look. You could pair this with a berry or red lip if you really wanted to go all out, but I prefer to stick with the nude lip so that all the attention is on my eye look. 

What I love most about this palette is the quality. You really get what you pay for with this palette as the shadows are super soft and although they do contain a bit of glitter and shimmer, it's so finely milled that you can't feel it scratching your eyelids if you have sensetive eyes like me and it glides on effortlessly. The pigmentation is great which means a little goes a long way, making it easier to blend out and create that smokey look. 

Have you tried any of the Dior palette's, I'm not sure which one to go for next!

  4. I agree - you do get what you pay for with Dior! It's a brand that needs to keep up its rep so you always get good products (well, in my opinion haha) this pallet looks beautiful though! I love the earthy tones in this season! xx
