I am so excited to start giving you sneak peeks at the upcoming Dior State of Gold Christmas 2015 Collection. The collection embodies the soft, nuanced luxury of the radiant glow of elegant gold.
Since eyeshadows are my beauty drug of choice, I of course had to start my coverage with the beautiful limited edition Dior 5 Couleurs State of Gold Eyeshadow Palettes ($70 CAD) in 576 Eternal Gold and 886 Blazing Gold. The shadows are embossed with a modern chevron pattern.
Eternal Gold is a gorgeous palette with shades of pale gold ivory, grey-green, pale copper peach, rich purple taupe, and sparkling black.
The shadows have a smooth, almost creamy, texture without any powder pickup. The lighter shades have good pigmentation and I was delighted to discover how richly pigmented the glittering black is. It is absolutely stunning and works great as a liner. The other shades have a refined shimmer texture that give the colours a sophisticated interest.
Blazing Gold has shades of creamy nude, bold claret red, soft pink, glittering charcoal, and cool chestnut.
Like Eternal Gold the lighter shades have good pigmentation and the deeper shades great pigmentation. The sparkling charcoal offers the same impressive colour payoff as the sparkling black in Eternal Gold. I didn’t experience any issues with glitter fallout in either of the sparkling shades in the palettes.
The 4 shades in the palette, other than the sparkling charcoal, all have a beautiful sophisticated gentle shimmer that any woman will find flattering.
The eyeshadow palettes are the same newer slim style of secure snap closure deep navy compacts that have been released lately from Dior.
What are you thinking of the Holiday eyeshadow palettes. I know many of you will be excited to see that they did not do the usual glitter shade that were typically a part of previous Dior quint releases over the years. These colour combinations and finishes can easily be worn everyday or dressed up for a special evening depending on your colour selections and placement.
The Dior Holiday 2015 Collection will be hitting counters in Canada on October 15th, 2015.
