Christmas is a time for shimmering and glittering and the return of the dark smokey eye. For Christmas 2008 Dior’s offering is Night Diamond – a collection of limited edition products that wink and shimmer and glitter away at you.
I saw the products yesterday at the launch of the Dior Iconic mascara and I had to test them out. So, once the crowd had dissipated around the Dior makeup truck (more on that below – I’d like to hear your thoughts) I went to play with Dior’s Christmas 2008 collection – Night Diamond.
First up, the Dior Night Diamond Eyeshadow palettes (RM187). 2 Limited Edition eyeshadow palettes in the Iridescent eyeshadow quint named – Twilight and Moonlight respectively. Twilight is the one with the darker shades while Moonlight is the one with the light shades.
At first sight, I was interested in Twilight the one with the darker shades. The colours are iridescent and very strong in colour. The middle colour is really dark and glittery which some people may like and some may not. It is definitely a smokey eye palette.
Moonlight on the other hand is rather strange. There are 4 light shades with one dark shade in the middle. The light shades are iridescent and lovely on their own. However, worn together, they look way too similar to justify putting all of them in one palette. Also, I thought the middle shade stood out too much so careful blending is required when using Moonlight. Here are some swatches on the back of my hand.
