MAKEUP LOOK | Dior State of Gold 5 Couleurs Limited Edition Blazing Gold Palette

Looks like something happened with Fall and I missed the boat with talking about Dior’s Fall Cosmopolite collection just being crazed with life, but I absolutely HAVE to talk about Dior’s limited edition State of Gold holiday collection! Reinterpreting Christmas with shades of grey, baby pink, grey-green and of course red, State of Gold reinvents the holiday season with festive sophistication. Eyeshadows and nail polish are usually my favourite parts of any collection and Dior’s 5 Couleurs Palettes for this season rank in my top 5 Dior palettes! What I love about Eternal Gold* ($70.00 CDN) and Blazing Gold* ($70.00 CDN) is how festive and yet UN-festive these shades are. Oftentimes, Christmas is about glitter, glitter and more glitter, but these two palettes are surprisingly wearable outside the holiday party season. 





Blazing Gold is my favourite palette of the two with every colour swatching beautifully. The center highlighter shade was slightly patchy, but for the amount of highlight I actually do, I wasn’t too fussed.

Final verdict: Though I wish I had found a better way to use that shimmery rusty red, I was still very pleased with how this palette performed in terms of pigmentation and application. Some of Dior’s lighter, more pastel shades have had a bit of fallout for me in the past, so I am impressed with how the grey-pink performed. The two darker shades were so easy to work with and I did not have any fallout on my skin after doing my eye makeup. I have never seen a palette with a red like this one in it so for something limited edition, I think Dior did a great job of making it stand out!



The Dior State of Gold Collection is available at Sephora and Hudson’s Bay.
