Dior Fall Look 'Carre Bleu' Palette | Review & Swatches

Friday, 21 November 2014






Hello Beauties! I hope you're all well and are having a great week. I have yet another Uni deadline looming so I'm spending most of my time in the library at the moment which isn't what I would consider fun! I just have to keep reminding myself that in a couple of months it will all be over and I will be able to go into the world of work, which is what I really want. Anyway, earlier this month it was my Mums birthday and I decided to get her the Dior Couleurs Palette in Carre Bleu which is part of their Fall Collection 2014. I know that she loves blue eyeshadows and Dior palettes so when I saw this limited edition one I knew it was meant to be. She kindly let me test it out and review it here on Lipgloss & Lashes, as it was just too pretty to not show you all. 

The Dior 5 Couleurs Palette in Carre Bleu comes with five slivery blue shades, perfect for creating either a day time look or a more smoky glam, night out look. The palette comes with a powder blue shade which is almost matte, however it does have some very subtle silver shimmer running through it, a silvery white shade perfect for highlighting your brow bone and inner corner, or just as an overall lid colour. It also contains an ocean blue colour with blue shimmer running through it, a midnight blue/almost black shade with a navy blue shimmer running through it which looks beautiful in the outer corners of your eyes or even as a liner if you don't want a dramatic look. The middle shade is a shimmery blue-grey colour which looks great in a blue smoky eye look or just on its own. 

Although Dior shadows are expensive (around £40 for a palette, although I did get 10% off this), I do think that you get what you pay for with this brand. Each of the shadows are highly pigmented and buttery, and they blend like a dream. I find it really hard to do a smokey look but with this palette, the colours just blend in amazingly meaning I can avoid the dreaded 'black eye look'. I'd say that if you are thinking of going for a Dior palette though, go for shades that you know you will get a lot of wear from. As they are so expensive, Dior isn't really the place to go for electric brights but for an everyday palette that you can also glam up, Dior is the one. I have a purple one and a golden one on my wish list! 

Lots of Love,

  3. That is a really pretty palette. I probably wouldn't use those shades though, I am a neutrals girl after all x

  4. This is such a dreamy palette. I'm so shy when it comes to colour, but I can imagine it looking stunning on the eyes.
