Hey HOW YOU DOIN’?

I know, I’m a bad blogger. PFFT. I don’t pretend that this is my full time job so… if you are still around reading this then YAY… thanks man. To be honest I really don’t care anymore and this is the last dang time I apologize for not posting often enough…Either you like me, or you don’t, so…HA. DEAL DUDES.

Anyways…Dior Summer 2016 unexpectedly showed up on my doorstep one morning. Yeah, usually I have to email the PR and ask heyyyyyy……remember me?!! I used to do that. Not anymore, because I don’t give a rat’s ass now and won’t beg for crap to show up here. Especially Dior, because I’m not a huge Dior Fangirl as you know.  So, I was pleasantly surprised that I wasn’t forgotten this time…although let’s see what happens down the road hey? 😛 I tend to tick off a lot of PR because I don’t blog for any brand and their free stuff..I blog because well…I like chatting with you all.

So today I’m going to tell you my thoughts about Dior 5 Couleurs Polka Dots Eyeshadow Palette #536 Escapade. Because it’s the one that most people seemed to gasp at when I showed it on Instagram? And I don’t know why, because honestly the colours aren’t that amazing or unique? It kind of surprised me to be honest.

Swatchy Time!

They’re typical Dior shadows…slightly powdery and dry, but blend nicely. Not a lot of pigment either. Like I said, typical Dior. Click to enlarge the images below to get a better look.

I mean I like the palette? But it takes A LOT OF WORK to get these looks I created-especially the more pastel one I created. The brown one wasn’t hard at all, but that’s just not a very unique look at all now, is it? Unless you are totally new to this makeup game, I’m sure you all have a nice golden warm brown eyeshadow in your collection by now. And the peach shade is rather paltry in this palette… I’d much rather use MAC Paradisco for a bazinga! peach shade on my lids. That one doesn’t take TONS of layering to show up like the one in Dior 5 Couleurs Polka Dots Eyeshadow Palette #536 Escapade did.

Again Dior, you just kind of fall in that I ALMOST LIKE IT ENOUGH TO BUY IT category….but just not quite there. I mean, this isn’t a cheap palette here in Canada, costing $72 which is LUDICROUS, so I’m not going to tell you that this is a MUST buy if it doesn’t WOW me…and this just didn’t do that. Sorry Dior. You can do better. I’m just waiting for that day…whether it comes soon is another question…I wait with bated breath. 😛

Summer collections are the ones that typically disappoint me…what about you? I just don’t get summer collections at all. I hardly buy any summer makeup as they just aren’t my style at all. You?
