When Dior announced that they were coming out with new palettes, I went ape shit. I mean, if you haven't seen them yet, fucking do it because they are the prettiest things ever. The day after they were released, I went to Nordstroms in Chicago and snatched one up... and man it was like Pompeii in there. People running around, grabbing whatever they can.. it was no surprise that I didn't get the palette I was eyeing. Though, who would honestly like to go back in there...
So, I do what I do and play around with my makeup.

SOoOO, a little different than the old. Slimmer and without the gorgeous holographic CD I adored so much. Seriously, Dior? serioussslllyyy I'm not too disappointed that I got the wrong palette because, look at the gorgeous and unique color combination! I've never seen anything quite like it.
Also, thumbs up to Dior for making the highest quality pouch I've had yet
And if you have a shit ton of these (which, let's be honest, I might be that person give or take a year), they have the color on the back.
At first they were a little hard and weren't overly buttery or pigmented.. which was a bit worrisome.
BUT, I discovered that they need to just be broken into a bit. Also, skip on the sponge applicators because these fellas need a brush. I was also happy that the pink and white were irridescent, smooth pixi dust-esc shadows... not.a.fan.of.pink.on.my.eye
Here's a look with all 5 shadows that I slapped on at 2 in the morning (I'm full of bright ideas, huh?). That red/burgundy fucker has some serious intensity when you swatch it, but with a brush I felt like I had a lot of control over the amount went on.
Also, I wasn't sure how the colors would look together, but I dig it. It's all arty fartsy.
The shimmer doe.... so stunning! My pictures will never truly capture their sheen. Plus they blended together with ease... which means I can get away with slapping these suckers on without looking stupid- AND THAT'S ALWAYS A PLUS
I'm running out of material here, so enjoy a kinda fitting gif of David Grohl. ANYWAY, I was pretty impressed... maybe more so than the YSL couture palettes so far (although, that fall palette is calling my name so hard I don't know if I can resist much longer).
Pied De Poule is totally going to happen next...keep an eye out
