Dior Bonne Etoile Palette (#384) is one of the two eyeshadow quints released with the Mystic Metallics collection for Fall 2013. Dior Cosmetics Creative Director Tyen describes the Mystic Metallics collection as reflecting the ‘mysterious colours of the galaxy- like a journey from the earth to the moon‘. Star patterns are embossed on each of the eyeshadows in the quint- a reference to the lucky charm (a metallic star pierced with a hole) that Monsieur Dior carried in his pocket.
This is my first Dior palette and I’m fairly besotted with this quint. Each shade is unique and complex, and I can see myself making use of every colour in that palette for a variety of different looks. The metallic blue on the bottom right is gorgeous in an evening smoky eye; and the olive brown shade in the centre is such a great multitasker (great combined with the other shadows, complex enough to stand on it’s on as a single wash on the lid). Pigmentation varies from medium-full (4. metallic blue ) to sheer (5. seafoam green)- but all shades are buildable.
The way I like to use this palette is choosing 1-3 shades within this palette and combining it with other matte eyeshadows.
This is a sneak peek at the upcoming FOTD I’ll be publishing in the next day or so using the Dior 5 Couleurs Bonne Etoile palette- the specific shades used will be in that post.
Keep reading after the jump!
#1 Dark khaki with olive and gold shimmer- medium to full pigmentation
#2 Light silvery cool pink with delicate silver sparkle – sheer, buildable to medium pigmentation.
#3. Olive brown with a smooth satin finish and fine multicoloured sparkle (green, gold, rose) that my swatch completely missed. Sigh. Pigmentation is medium and buildable.
#4. Dark blue metallic with a hint of teal. This is the most pigmented eyeshadow in the palette and delivers medium to full pigmentation.
#5 Soft sea foam green with a satiny sheen- sheer with one layer but builds up nicely to medium pigmentation.
Wear time is about 6hrs on my lids with my usual Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer before slight fading and I found that a quick touch up is required toward the end of the day. This is about average for eyeshadows on my oily lids. Wear time and colour intensity can be extended with a colour base (cream eyeshadows like MAC Paint Pots, Maybelline Color Tattoos, Becca Eye Tints etc)
