|Dior 5 Couleurs Couture Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette in 236 5th & Pine|
Believe it or not, this is the first Dior quint that I have ever purchased. Naturally, I'm beyond excited. I think the last time I ever bought Dior powder eyeshadow was in 1998. 1998! My goodness! I was a year out of college and on a trip overseas that turned what would have been 15 hours on a plane into a 3 day voyage. Bored out of my wits, I found myself buying things from the duty free catalog on the airplane. I purchased a truly delightful Dior makeup palette that included everything one would need to create a full face. It had powder and blush, several eyeshadows and lipcolors, and a tube of mascara. I had that piece for many years and it served me well. But that's not why I bought this.
I was browsing the Nordstrom website and saw a photograph on the sidebar. It was a Dior quint that I had never seen before. Although I never buy them, I do keep track of Dior's releases. Lately, I've been enamored with deep, dark blue/grey/charcoal eye colors. I had purchased several eyeshadow sticks but always go back to powder to finish off my eye makeup. I just feel more comfortable working with powder. So that dark shade in this palette just called to me. Add the silver and gold, oh my, it's perfect for the holidays! But I couldn't find any information on 5th & Pine anywhere online so I couldn't tell if it was a new product and what collection it was with. I bought the palette at the Dior counter at my local Nordstrom and am eager to share some pictures and swatches with you.
