Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow 809 Petal Shine

I picked up one of Dior's 5-Colour Eyeshadow palettes in 809 Petal Shine during Sephora's Chic Week, and I have been absolutely loving it! This was my first Dior palette, and I'm already wanting to pick up another.

809 Petal Shine contains a beautiful mix of purples, pinks, and neutrals. All of the shadows are highly pigmented, and very smooth and finely milled. This palette comes with two double ended sponges, but I prefer to use my own brushes. From a company like Dior, I really would have like to have seen better quality brushes included, or no brushes at all. The sponges cheapen the palette somewhat, in my opinion.

I really like layering these eye shadows over top of Maybelline's Color Tattoo in Inked in Pink. This helps the shadows stay on all day long without fading or creasing. I love that I can create a full eye look with the shadows in this palette, and I often do reach for all five colours. I think that the lilac shades included in this palette are absolutely perfect for Spring and Summer. While this palette does include colourful shadows, they are all still very wearable. The darker purple shade is perfect to place in the crease and and some depth to your eyes. 

These palettes are expensive at $60 each, but I do think they are worth it. If you can find them on sale (Sephora's Chic Week, etc.) then definitely give one a try! The quality is incredible, and I can't lie, I do love having a Dior palette on my vanity. If you have any shade recommendations, please leave them in a comment below! :)
