Supergirl is finally on Netflix! They’ve been filming near my office from time to time, and after seeing their panel in San Diego Comic Con this year; I’ve decided to take the plunge in watching Marvel shows. (Also because Tom Felton is in The Flash!! Everyone go support!!) Besides catching up on TV shows, I’m still catching up on fall beauty and hopefully I get through it before all the deciduous trees become naked. Yes…still going over the fall collection of Dior, their Skyline collection. I was pretty giddy writing this post, at the same time, a bit anxious since eyeshadows and nail polishes aren’t my forte! So I hope my photos make up for my shoddy eyeshadow blending and badly painted nails. If you are into pinks and purples, surely you will be misty eyed over the Dior 5 Couleurs skyline eyeshadow palette and the Dior Vernis Couture.
The 5 Couleurs Skyline eyeshadow palette ($73 CAD) is inspired by the architecture of the Eiffel Tower and you can see the detailed and intricate print pressed onto the eyeshadow. I’m really impressed by the amount of detailed geometry in this thing and I’m bummed that I ruined it already. Each eyeshadow palette comes with its own pouch (if you can tell in the photo, my velvet eyeshadow bag holder is already pretty dusty) It’s almost too pretty to use, but for that price, you can’t not use it either.
The Dior 5 Couleurs Skyline Eyeshadow Palette in “506 Parisian Sky” contains shimmery, cool toned shades including a champagne colour, soft nude, brown, mint, and grey. Compared to the Capital of Light palette, I found this one was harder for it to show up on my eyes. The two shades on the top will probably be used the most, but I’m not sure how to use the mint and grey together as they are very similar when blended on the lid (#eyeshadowNoob.) The colour choices don’t really WOW me in this one. Texture wise though – they are SO silky. Usually the sheer, light shades are chalkier but all the shadows in this palette has the same, amazing consistency.
The Dior 5 Couleurs Skyline Eyeshadow Palette in “806 Capital of Light” is my favourite of the two. I found it easier for the colours to show up on my eyelids and I love the eggplant purple and light taupe shades. This palette has warmer and softer colours, also including a blush pink, ivory, and khaki brown. The colours are much more appealing in this one and they complement each other (in my opinion,) compared to Parisian Sky. The formulation is same as the other palette; silky! I wish my hair was as smooth as this eyeshadow.
We also have two polishes from the Skyline collection. The Dior vernis couture ($33 CAD) in Minmal is a pale pinkish nude. I find that bright and almost white shades are usaully the hardest to paint properly; I used three coats for my thumbs to be fully opaque and need around two coats for the rest. The colour Skyline is like a chocolatey purple and I’d categorize under ‘the perfect fall shades for the nails.’ My nails chipped around 3 days after application, but I find that is average, considering I’m on the keyboard daily. These polishes have a cream like consistency and looks very glossy!
There is no denying that Dior is killing it with their new collection – they make everything look so pretty and they always maintain such high standards. They are a bit on the pricey end – although you can probably find a lot of other budget friendly options in the market, these Dior beauties are worth a treat for yourself. The 5 Couleurs Skyline eyeshadow palettes are definitely the shining star of the collection (along with the Nude Air Luminizer!)
You can find Dior’s Skyline collection at Dior counters at The Bay, Holt Renfrew, and Nordstrom for a limited time.
