When you see the same shadow pop up on both Laura (Laura Carlson aka thelauracarlson) and Stacey’s (Expact Makeup Addict aka stadybelle) Snapchats, you know there is something good going on that you better get your hands on stat. The shadow in question is from Dior and without a seconds thought, I knew it had to be mine. I know, I’ve got enough warm browns to build an entire empire from however there is something about this wearable shade with a hint of glitter that I simply can’t get enough of.
658 Cosmopolite is everything you could want from an everyday brown that also has that magic ability to create a multidimensional shade with a single application. Not only that, it aids during that morning rush whilst your desperately trying to get out the door whilst finding yourself still faffing with a shadow brush #EveryMorning. Although from the swatches alone the glitter looks to be a tad OTT, this doesn’t translate onto the lid and instead adds a subtle element to the shadow which catches the light. For those of you that love NARS Himalia, Burberry 002 Nude or even those Tom Ford Spiced addicts, you’ll no doubt be a fan of this Dior offering. Yes the price tag is indulgent however for a warm brown shadow that I know I will use daily, it’s worth it to me.
Now Dior isn’t a beauty counter I often frequent so when I popped by to pickup the shadow I found myself suddenly drawn to a highlighter I’d never seen before. It had shimmer, it had packaging goals down to perfection and I wasn’t able to leave without it! The Diorskin Nude Air Luminser Powder in Shimmer 001 is everything I wish the new Jouer highlighter was. Pigmented, finely milled whilst delivering up a dose of golden highlight ready to make those cheekbones pop. I’m obsessed with everything about it, even the miniature kabuki that came alongside.
Are you a fan of Dior beauty? Are you tempted by their golden brown shadow?
