The prettiest cool green colors. Really brightens your face and though the thought of green eye shadow can be scary, these colors are really classy and gorgeous. I don't come across greens in this range often. Great formula that lasts all day with no creasing,
Meh. I think it is a great idea to combine shadow, liner and base. However I dont think Id purchase these anymore because it is just a wannabe. I will continue purchasing Dior 5 color palettes with 5 honest eye shadows.
There is a white "base" which in my opinion is not a very good base. Base is supposed to hold your eye shadow on place, and this just does not do it. So if I am about purchase this palette thinking I want to pack light when I am traveling, I would still need to pack your eye shadow base because this base is not really a base at all. No mercy here...If they market it as a base, I am gonna review it as a base, and this base does not keep your shadow on place, not is it easy to apply , because it has a weird creamy but powdery consistency. Liner, it is okay, but not very pigmented. Creases for sure if you have hooded eye lids. I LOOVE the light green glitter shade, it is the kind that gives you that wet look! The dark green is pigmented and smooth, gorgeous shade and the mddle shade is bright feminine mint green shade. None of them looks powdery on lids. I love them. I will keep this palette, but Id wish there was 2 other normal eye shadows. Liner and base are gimmicks here. Cost 40 pounds in UK, but I got it for 30 when House of Frazer had their beauty confidential sale.
I have been trying many green eyeshadows over last few years, trying to find some good match for my green eyes. I always looked either too cheap (with chanel) or too boring (with guerlain) or too dramatic (with estee lauder). I have seen a review of this palette on another website and decided to try. The sales person made me a nice make-up and it looked perfect! Natural enough for the day but also bright (colors are cold to neutral I would say, but I ma not an expert). And my eyes looked really nice, while I usually do not wear any eyeshadow during the day because my eyes look too big. I tried with brushes and got a reacher color, and with an applicator a lighter coverage very suitable for the day. I think this is a really smart combination of colors that you will use together (which is not always the case with palettes). For the evening you can add either the eyeliner or deeper green or more shine, very practical. First eyeshadow that I really use, not just store in my bathroom :) Initially I have seen pictures of the girl with blue or grey eyes and it actually also looked nice, I think these are quite neutral colors that might be a good change for boring nude or violet that usually is recommended for green eyes. They are expensive but I think I will use them for a long time.
I love all the 5 colours designer, this one is beautiful if you want a lovely green palette. You get a base whitish green for highlight, a very pale shimmery green, a dark green for contouring, a very dark green eyeliner and green with other reflects sparkles to add dimension. The sparkles do have a bit of drop out but it is kept minimal if you use a good eye shadow primer.
Overall this is a highly portable, beautiful set of greens, the price as usual with Dior is OTT but still this is a well made set.
I like Christian Dior eye shadow palettes, but this one isn't my favourite. It doesn't seem to blend as well as the other palettes that I have. And the shimmer ends up all over my face after a couple of hours, so I don't use it on my eyes at all now. I only use it on my decolletage if I'm wearing something low cut at night. I generally like the Dior palettes as the colours go together well and blend well (I have several), and if you get 5 shadows, it works out to be cost effective. However, as I don't really use the sparkly one in the top right corner, it doesn't end up being good value, and there are other green eye shadow palettes that I'd prefer.
I ordered the "green design" through a Japanese site as the green version is Asia only, which I find odd as I'm sure people would buy this one in Europe/USA etc as well. The shimmery shades are lovely and the greens goes very well with the dark green eyeliner. The eyeliner lasts throughout the day and smudges very little.
