Eye Adore: Dior 3 Couleurs Smoky

I thought that I’d end up passing these little beauties by, because they didn’t look like much in pictures. But when I saw the new Dior 3 Couleurs Smoky Palettes, I soon changed my mind. Each palette consists of a base color, a ‘smoky’ color, and a high shine ‘couture’ color.

The palette in ‘Smoky Khaki’ came home with me:

The top of this little genius compact slides back, and the top pops open to reveal the colors. Took me a minute to figure it out, I nearly dropped it trying to pop the top in traditional fashion. Fortunately for me, I have a bit of a learning curve…

The colors don’t look like much in the pan. But I’ll have you know that the base is a solid swatch of golden green, the ‘soft smoky’ is a dark khaki color, and the ‘couture smoky’ is a shimmering khaki wonder. Of all the color selections, this (and the black, which reminded me a lot of Chanel’s Mirifique) was my favorite.

With flash, the colors look a bit more ‘taupe’ on my skin. But if you remove the flash (at least in my pictures), the green really comes through:

Out of focus… SMH. But you get the general idea. 

You can get this lovely palette, and any of the others at www.bloomingdales.com

    This is gorgeous and it's got my name written all over it. Thanks for the pics. I would've passed it up otherwise.

  2. Shontay they are totally worth taking a look at in person. I would have passed on them too, had I not seen them in person. Each palette has its own personality. The green was the most flattering on me… especially the shimmer. It is simply divine.

  3. I definitely like this palette. I'm going to take a closer look at the other colors, but this is definitely the best of the bunch.

  4. do they have a green tint to them? or is it just me? 😮 x

  5. This palette definitely has a green tint to it. Under the flash, it looks more bronze, but it is definitely green.
