Review: Addicted to Dior Eyeshadow and EOTD

When I was at the Nordstrom Trend Show, I was able to pick up a few things from the Dior counter. Previously, I have used only one item from Dior and that was a foundation. I decided that since I'm paying similar prices for Japanese brand eyeshadows, why not try Dior.

I bought from the Summer 2010 collection Crush Glow (LE), which is a 5 color palette. I also picked up a single color eyeshadow in Ultra Violet and a medium eyeshadow brush. All items came with it's own velvet type of pouch. The eyeshadows are encased in a beautfiul casing and has a mirror on the inside cover.

For my EOTD, I prepped as usual and started off with Painterly Paint Pot as my base. I used the middle color, which is coral color, in the contour area. Next was the taupe color (bottom left corner) from lashline to above crease line. The dark brown color (bottom right corner) was applied on the outer half of my eye, lashline to above crease line and blended upward into contour area. I dotted the middle of my eye with the gold color. I felt that this whole look was too muted so to help give my eyes some "pop", I used Ultra Violet in the outer corner of my upper eyelid, applying it in a "v" shape. I used the medium eyeshadow brush to line my upper lash line with Ultra Violet and the outer half of my lower lash line. I like this brush since it has the right stiffness and is thin enough to give a nice fine line. I decided to use MAC Marine Life Highlighter, the coral color to highlight my browbone because I still felt that I needed more color to this look. Lined my upper lash line and outer half of lower lash line with K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner 24h.

I also decided to try out Tony Moly Secret BB Cream again but this time applied it more heavily than yesterday. It gave me much better coverage. However, I think that I applied it a little too heavily since I can feel there's product on my face. It's not a feeling that I like much. Ahhh, to find the happy medium.

Mai's coming this afternoon to play. We may end up going to Nordstrom.

I received your e-mail on Friday, Thank you very much.
I'll write you back in tomorrow.

About your Dior new eye shadows, I'm sure that Dior cosmetics always gives us such a great result.
And limited cosmetics always comes with cute pouches or other goods. I like that.
The Velvet color stands out well on this make up, looks so nice!!

Hi Shihoco! Thanks for commenting. The Dior shadows are really nice and smooth. Although I felt it was a little too muted for me, Tasha, my Dior MUA, told me that she really liked it when she saw me. I'm thinking of buying more palettes since I'm liking Dior so much right now.
