Sometimes it is the products I love the most that take me the longest time to write about. I hightailed it to the Bay the minute the Dior Summer 2011 Electric Tropics hit the counters months ago, but am finally getting around to posting about my two favourite purchases. Initially I told myself, “Lydia, you can buy one eye shadow quint. ONE. They look similar so pick ONE.” That resolve was short lived.
Admittedly the Rosy Nude and Rosy Tan palettes look similar in their packaging but on my skin tone, one is more daytime and the other is more evening. So I bought both. Completely justified…AHEM!
Daytime: Rosy Nude #534
Evening: Rosy Tan #754
I have never been let down by a Dior quint which is why I continually invest in them. When you purchase a Dior quint you know that your are getting high quality pigments, sophisticated finishes, blendable and multi-functional colours, and endless combinations. Unfortunately, that cannot be said for many other high end makeup houses. If you took away all of my other eyeshadows and left me with just my Dior quints, I would still be able to create innumerable looks and be happy….But just so we’re clear, I’m not getting rid of my other palettes any time soon.
