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.
