Would you look at that? Already working on that wishlist! I own quite a few palettes, but this one is BY FAR the prettiest one yet! The packaging is so elegant and has me at the edge of my seat waiting for Spring to arrive. Yes, I know that Winter just started. But can it be over now?

I really like how the darker shadows are enclosed at the end of the palette (the last 2 are technically liners). The rest of the shadows are all sweet and innocent and then you flip open the cover and it’s like ‘Hah! Just kidding! Let’s party!’ This palette also comes with a nifty double ended brush for the shadow and liner application.

The shadows were all very soft. I was afraid my finger was going to break through on 1 or 2 of them. Or I could have just been afraid of breaking this beauty in? I absolutely love how it swatched and applied. It blended effortlessly! I went for a softer look in the photos below. But you can easily go bold with this palette too! I might play around with it more this week and post a few more looks. But for now this is what I did with it and I absolutely LOVE it!

I used 6 on my lid, 3 in my crease, 1 on my brow bone and inner corner of my eye, and 7 on my lower lash line. And yes, that’s me still in my pj’s. I took these photos bright and early in the morning and well, it’s my day off. Lazy Lisa was being lazy.

Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in (756) Golden Shock

Boy was I lucky to get my hands on this bad boy! It’s been a crazy few months for me (make that year!) between moving again, settling in again, and the holidays. I missed out on a lot of the holiday collections, but from what I can tell I didn’t miss very much. Anyway, when I set my eyes on this palette it was in the beginning of December and I couldn’t find it anywhere. When my husband and I started doing our Christmas shopping we stopped by Dillard’s (the only Dior counter within 50 miles from home) and was told they were sold out. But they were able to get the St. Louis location to send me the last palette they had in stock! See? Lucky!

You’ll have to excuse the quality of my photos. I’m still trying to set up my area. It’s been unusually dark and gloomy around here lately so outdoor shots aren’t that much different from indoor shots. So until my husband sets up my area complete with fancy shmancy lighting, this is what I’m working with.

Anyway, onto the palette! I was really sold on the plum and gold shades! I don’t own anything similar to the top 3 shades. The first plum shade is just SO pretty! I did find that it was a little difficult to work with though. But after a little work I ended up with a look I was quite pleased with. Which you can see in the following 2 photos. I used the first shade on my lid, the 5th shade in my crease, the 3rd shade on the inner corner of my eye, the 4th shade on my brow bone, and the 2nd shade on my lower lash line. As a bonus I got a full size Diorshow mascara for FREE which you can also see in the photos below.

In all I probably would have survived had I not tracked it down. But I’m certainly glad that I did because it really is pretty and with the crazy year I had a little luxury was definitely appreciated.
