In one word: amazing! I have about 7 or 8 Dior quads and if I had to choose one, this would be it. The colours work great for brown eyes. Difficult to find, though.

This palette would never had caught my eye because of the bright blue that was in it (i was always afraid to try blue e/s with my brown eyes).
However I was curious and asked the MUA to use those e/s on me, MY GOD did she do a great job!!!!
I've never seen such a a great color-combo and she blended the e/s so well that even the bright blue (in the pan) looked amazing. It isn't as bright as I thought.
After taking a look in the mirror I was hooked!!! And I still am!!!

This was my first Dior Quint...it's so beautiful to look at that I have a hard time using it, but when I do, I love the way it looks. Each color is unique and perfect in its own way. The silvery taupe and the purpley deep blue work very well together. The duochrome is absolutely gorgeous as well. Every few years, Dior releases an exceptional quint and this is one of them. LOVE it.

I'm 50/50 on this compact. While the two iridescent greens (one dark/deep moss and one pale green) and one iridescent silvery/grey/taupe are gorgeous - the blue and royal blue/purple aren't so good. The greens look fabulous and the taupe is a gorgeous highlight or contour colour. I wouldn't repurchase only because I couldn't figure out how to use the blue/purple without looking like a punk rocker or like I had a black eye. I tried the dark purple just as a liner and it just didn't work. All that being said though - Dior shadows have a great smooth quality and a good strong pigment.

Secret Charm has got me under its spell. Ever since I bought this palette in September, I have worn nothing but. I am completely addicted to it. Its pewtery taupe, blue-tinged purple and Australian-opal blue-green highlighter seem almost to have been custom created for my pale green eyes. In fact, I have never before received so many compliments on my eyeshadow. The turquoise shade is also gorgeous and I do use it on occasion, but not as often as the other three shades. The dark, almost khaki green is the one that I have used the least, mainly because it does not work for me, but it too is amazing.
The quality of this Dior palette is the BEST that I have ever used. Staying power and application are unparalleled: it lasts all day without creasing and it blends so beautifully. It makes me looks as though I have had a professional apply my makeup. Plus, there is absolutely none of that horrid fall-out that can make a mess of the rest of you face.
This was my first Dior shadow and will certainly not be my last. It was heartbreakingly LE, but hopefully it will last. If you can find it, get it.

Dior secret charm is a mix of bright yet subtle colors. Though in palette, it looks like it'd be a little weird to use these colors together, it produces some of most gorgeous combos. From base to highlight, you can truly finish your eye makeup with this one palette.

Dior quints are little pieces of heaven that you can hold in the palm of your hand. The heavy stylish compact that flashes the CD with a movement in light, the quilting pattern of the silky shadows inside - if these were a food they would be champagne truffles!
Ok now that I am done with my drooling - I adore these shadows because they have the light silky texture that Stila does (except perhaps these are even better) but the shadows go from sheer to opaque almost instantly depending upon application. These really are worth every penny ($64 CDN after taxes!)
The colors of Secret Charm are a cool toned brown eyed girl's dream - a silvery taupe (top right); a blue based purple with NO RED/bruised look (bottom right); a sky blue (bottom left) that goes on green blue/grey unless you pack it over a base); and a shimmery khaki that has enough brown tones to make it wearable as a liner, but is sheer enough to use as a crease color. The center color is the most unusual I think - it is a shimmery seafoam green. Limited Edition for Fall 2006, these are not easy to find so grab one of you can. Believe it or not you can make a great smokey eye with this set. An more great day look can be achieved by using a matte base color (a tan/neutral) and then using the taupe as a wash, framing the eye with the khaki (
Yes - scary and different! But do not be afraid! These are immensely wearable. I must get my hands on Stylish Move now.

I have always been a little afraid of wearing blue on my eyes. I have brown hair, light/med skin and hazel eyes. After having a Dior make up done for a special event I couldn't help but buy this palette. The colours simply make my eyes pop. The light blue on the bottom left goes on strong but is easily blended down to make a great base. The deep purple is a great liner. It has no plum in it at all. I like putting the shadow on with the sponge applicators and then blending with my favorite e/s brush. Just like all Dior e/s it wears well, feels wonderful going on and of course we love the case. It IS pricey, but you do get five great colours that you don't need tons of to get the look that you want. If you can't spoil yourself sometimes, who can you spoil!

This is my first Dior quint. I've always been put off buying them by the price (£32), but after trying this one I had to buy it.
The colours are otherwordly beautiful. Top right is a very slightly green tinged silvery taupe, bottom right is pigmented purple, bottom left looks blue in the palette but shows up shimmery blue green on my yellow toned lids, top left looks dark green in the palette, but goes on a little like UD Roach but with more khaki, kind of a khaki that flashes brown. The middle shade is shimmery pale peppermint green.
Apart from the purple the colours are fairly sheer, they all go on very silky looking and make my eyelids 'glow'. I would say the texture is similar to Armani e/s.
For reference I have very dark brown eyes and pale yellow toned skin.

CD is outrageously priced, yet I have been leaning towards these quints more than MAC e/s. A year ago, I would not have bought these colors separatly, but seeing them in a palette, I realize I can get some awesome looks. They remind of the colors of the seas, like something a mermaid would wear (very silly of me)! There are shimmery shades of teal, silver, green, and violet. This particular quint is totally out of stock on sephora.com, but the stores still carry them. I also recommend stylish move, another new quint from dior.
