My wonderful husband surprised me with this gorgeous palette last week. I rarely splurge on high-end brands myself so anytime you do see a high-end brand featured on this blog, it’s because my hubby has been spoiling me.

This is actually my first Dior palette. I’ve seen swatches of some of the other palettes and while I thought they were pretty I felt they were too soft for my liking. But this one really stood out. The pattern/design is what first caught my eye, but when I swatched it for myself I just had to make it mine. The shadows are nicely pigmented and I didn’t have to build them up much to achieve the look I was going for. The texture is soft and sort of velvety. It blended wonderfully and lasted about 7 or so hours before it started to noticeably fade and slightly crease. You can see a look I created with this gorgeous palette below. I’m wearing the 4th shade on my lid, the 3rd shade in my crease, the 2nd shade on the inner corner of my eye and brow bone, the 1st shade on my lower lash line, and an entirely different brand as my highlighter. And since I was lucky enough get some Rouge Dior Lipcolor samples I decided to complete the look with shade 999.
