Really good eyeshadows, and a very neat price for five different ones! I don't like the new packaging, but would definitely repurchase if I find the perfect color blend.
I love this stuff! It lasts forever! The eye shadows are very silky and all the colors look great! I have always had compliments every time I pull out my 5 star shadows to touch up.
I like these eyeshadows. Not my HG, still searching for that, but these are nice. They go on very smooth and blend very well. They seem silky and luxurious. The package is gorgeous. I don't see a ton of color when I wear these shadows (I have Incognito), but my eyes definitely look prettier and brighter when I wear them. I use these every day. Very natural looking. The price seems high, until you remember you're getting 5 shadows. This compact will last me a long time.
OMG...No other shadows compare. I have had 4 pans, and that's saying alot; my newest pan is 8mo old and my oldest is probably 8yrs old. Seriously. They are superbly formulated and highly pigmented, giving you rich, vibrant coverage without having to layer, layer, layer the color for coverage. One application with a touch up is more than enough. However you really do need to blend them because they are so color concentraded- if you aren't careful about blending, they end up looking splotchy. I have tried just about every other brand of eyeshadow (d/s and high-end) and these are my favorite, hands down! 5 lippies (absolutely deserve them too!)
I purchased two on ebay--mauve chic and the roses for about half off. These are so expensive, but truly, the amount in one compact equals to about 4 single shadows. I suspect that the shadows are a bit old (no boxes), but they're still really good quality and are beautiful colors. They are creamy feeling and nicely pigmented. Dior has added so many fun colors to try. I think that any one into makeup should own at least one because you can have lots of color combinations.
Tender Chic Compact: Very beautiful blue compact with a velvet bag-love the silver logo. Paid $108.00 (New Zealand)-Excellent value as you get five shadows in one compact. Usually purchase Chanel shadows but I am really impressed by this product. Shadows: Light pink-white high-lighter-creamy neutral beige-chocolate-mauvey pink. 2 silver embossed applicators, one for precise shading, the other for all over coverage. However I wish Dior would replace those types of applicators with a mini brush. Also the velvet bag could have a zip on it plus a small handle. Overall I like Dior: the package presentation is slightly more attractive than Chanel. The couleurs highly pigmented-are supposed last for hours (I use Chanel Base L as a primer). Thumbs up Dior.
Update-Product has caused eye irritation/pigments are barely visible-except the chocolate e/s as a liner. A real dud. Will stick to Chanel for powdered e/s. Considering the price, I expected more for my money, not a big zero. The only masterpiece is the compact presentation.
Great pigment, incredible staying power, excellent color selection, stylish packaging... All the pros I know love these! Not cheap but will last a lifetime.
I used to love Chanel but I noticed colors turning to dull and muddy on me. Dior colors stay on true and are richly pigmented. I find Chanel and other shadows rather sheer. Nothing stays on better!
I have Incognito and Tender chic.
For my brown eyes, Tender chic is beautiful as well. I bought Bobbi Brown single eyeshadows previously, but I could not be able to finish completely and the time's up for replacement. We have to replace powder eyeshadow products every 2-3 years if not 1 year. I kept BB eyeshadows for more than 8 years and still a lot left and really it was a time to go. I threw them away.( wish BB's eyeshadow is smaller and less expensive. More practical.) At the end, eyeshadow palette is more economical for me. Yet still Dior is NOT inexpensive brand. I prefer eyeshadow palette for now. 1 lippie off for the cheap sponge applicater (shisheido is the best) and still the price. continued >>
The Dior 5-pan was my favorite until now. They have reformulated the shadows to be not as pigmented as they used to be and more shimmery. The new colors are not spectacular.
