Let’s talk about all the eye stuffs in the Dior Holiday 2015 State Of Gold Collection. One post-boom-bazinga-done. Fast and furiously gold, although not as gold as I thought it was going to be. Which for me is a YAY, because I’m not a fan of gold on my eyes, especially the more yellow golds.
Dior Holiday 2015 5 Couleurs State Of Gold Eyeshadow Palette #886 Blazing Gold
This one is a stunner, that’s for sure! Look at that red! And I love a good red eyeshadow, and this one is NICE you guys.
The shadows all feel soft when swatched, are nicely pigmented, and blend beautifully on the eye.
I had no problem, other than significant fallout when applying them, so best to put your foundation on AFTER. The pink and the gold shade are more matte, and don’t have a ton of colour payoff, although the pink is surprising. You can definitely see the pink when you apply it-like a wash of pink. It’s quite pretty, and different, since most pinks are usually sparkly. And that glittery black shade I applied wet which worked quite well! It made the sparkles stay put much better. I like this palette.
Dior Holiday 2015 5 Couleurs State Of Gold Eyeshadow Palette #576 Eternal Gold
Dior Holiday 2015 5 Couleurs State Of Gold Eyeshadow Palette #576 Eternal Gold is a cooler toned palette, so I personally prefer this one.
The shades are a bit more boring compared to that red shade, but easier to wear, and just looks better on me I think. With this palette, you can wear whatever pretty lipstick shade you want, so for me, I’d get more wear from this palette for sure. It all depends on what you want to showcase for holiday parties-eyes, or lips. This palette is better if you’re a lip gal like me.
Most of these shades worked quite well again, but since these shades are a bit lighter, be careful to not overblend them.
In this next picture I’m wearing that plummy taupe on my eye, but I also used the Dior Fusion Mono Eyeshadow($36) in Blazing on the centre of my lid.
Wow! I didn’t think I was going to love this as much as I do! It’s great to add a bit of god sparkle on top of your eyeshadows. It stays put too.
Finally thoughts? I’m much more impressed with the Dior Holiday 2015 State Of Gold Eye products this time around. The shadows are really easy to work with, and blend nicely. The shades are pretty as well! But, are they worth $70 CDN? Well, again that’s up to you. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again-I think Dior Eye Palettes have gorgeous colour combinations. Their shadow formula for me, is not one of my favourites-although this time around they perform a lot better, so that’s a good thing. If you love Dior, you will love these. Personally? I say get the Fusion Mono Eyeshadow in Blazing and be done with any ‘holiday’ eye products. All you need is a bit of gold sparkle and any eyeshadow you have will look ‘holiday’. Save your money for a really pretty holiday lipstick, which Dior has for sure! I’ll show them soon, but spoiler alert-it’s real love for me!
The Dior Holiday 2015 State Of Gold collection will be available on counters October 15 in Canada.
What do you think? This is the first ‘Holiday’ collection I’ve seen so far. They’re ALWAYS GOLD. Sigh. When is someone going to do an awesome Navy and Silver Holiday Collection? WHEN.
Do you love holiday makeup collections? Or are you like me, and think they’re just all the same and all too gold?
