Take a Walk on the Wild Side this Fall with Dior

September 20, 2018

I have not acquired any new Dior makeup in a long time, preferring to invest in their fashion accessories instead.  But I couldn’t resist the latest Dior en Diable collection for Fall 2018, especially the 5 Couleurs Rouge en Diable eyeshadow palettes.  There are 2, I resisted the urge to pick up both of them, and chose the more sophisticated Volcanic.

Right away you can probably already tell what set the Dior 5 Couleurs Rouge en Diable palette apart.  The powders are embossed with a fine leather texture, complete with evenly-spaced threading, a perfect replication of their fine leather goods.  This is one that makes me ache to touch with my fingers, to experience the tantalizing softness, although I am deeply torn to ruin the beautiful design.  I did swatch it (super gently though!) to give you an idea of the shades.

From left to right, the shades are:

Perhaps because it has been such a long time since I played with Dior eyeshadows, I thought the pigmentation and quality of Volcanic was pretty good, although you can’t really tell from the gentle swatches above.  However, when applied with a brush on the lids, Volcanic produces a really beautiful sleek eye look.

In this look above, I started with the brightened bronze all over my lid, followed by deep brown on the outer third.  I pressed the orange shade into the middle of my lid, and dabbed some silver shimmer to the inner corner.  Finally, I lined the lower lash line with grey before adding mascara.

Here is the complete makeup look:
