I’ll say this for the Dior Parisienne Lights palette for Spring 2009 – its a palette for those who like sheer colours. So, if you prefer something more pigmented for eyeshadow, instead of light sheer colour, you might want to stop reading now.
However, if you have been looking for an eyeshadow palette that can allow you to wear colour and shimmer to work (even in the most serious of environments) and an eyeshadow palette that can work with an old Hollywood red lip, look no further than the Dior Parisienne Lights palette or also known as Dior Parisian Lights eyeshadow palette. I however, like the French spelling 😛
I loved the look of the limited edition Dior Parisienne Lights palette that was released for Spring 2009. It looked so pretty in the palette. However, I was in for a surprise when I swatched it.
The colours were all light and sheer. It reminded me of an old Dior palette that also had sheer light shades – Moonray I think its called. They were pretty though. So, I was a little disappointed when I saw that even that lovely taupe swatched as a sheer shimmery taupe-grey. It took me a lot of tries to get the colour to show up in the photos – its that hard to photograph.
But since this was the only eyeshadow palette I had for a whole week, I decided to make the most of it. I’m glad I gave Parisienne Lights a chance, because despite its sheerness of colour I like this palette!!
