Dior Bonne Etoile Mystic Metallics Eye Shadow Star Palette- Fall 2013

Dior Mystic Metallics collection for Fall 2013 my be the most stunning one this season. The first piece released so far is the Bonne Etoile 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette, a Nordstrom exclusive (at least for now). Photos, at least in the abysmal light condition we have here these days (even the sun is disgusted by the thick soup that calls itself our weather ), don't do Dior Bonne Etoile justice; neither do words. It's a beautiful eye shadow palette that offers a gorgeous design, wearable colors, and superb performance.

The star design is embossed and there's no overspray, so it'll take quite some time and until it's flattened. It's a very good thing, because I doubt anyone would be able to resist using these eye shadows. The colors (from top, clockwise): green olive, silvery light taupe/mauve, mint green, rich blue that leans teal, medium tobacco brown with a silvery undertone in a certain light.  All are shimmery with a subtle metallic finish, but there are no shiny particles and no glitter fallout. The pigment is intense and the complexity of each shade makes me want to stare at them forever.

There are so many possible looks to achieve with the Dior Bonne Etoile palette, including ones that are perfect for summer. Of course, the brown and olive are perfect fall colors. My favorite combination so far are the bottom two+center  or both diagonals.

Bottom Line: If you only get one item this season...

Dior Bonne Etoile Mystic Metallics Eye Shadow Star Palette ($61) for Fall 2013 is available from Nordstrom.com.

    1. I know, right? The blue is obviously my favorite, but each color here is fantastic.

  2. Ahhh, thank you so much for this post. I've been drooling over the promo pics and last night I noticed it on Nordstrom's website, but didn't want to jump on it because I was afraid the shadows might not be the greatest quality. I can't wait to get this and the Constellation one! Thanks again!

  3. Love the embossed look, but I think I'm going to hold out for the NARS singles. Great review, though!
