The Fairy golds palette (£40) is the cooler toned of the two eye palettes from the holiday collection.
It contains a frosty sheer oyster peach, a metallic golden
champagne (like the Night Golds palette, this upper right shade has
chunky particles and look uneven in the pan), a medium-dark brown with
semi-matte finish, frosty mauve taupe and in the centre a glitter
infused frosty bright white.
Texture wise the peach and mauve taupe feel smooth and buttery, the
brown and white and golden champagne have a slightly dryer feel. I
always find Dior shades to blend beautifully, to have great pigment and
last well, however I was very surprised to have this crease quite badly
so I have to wear this with a good eye primer to get it to last. Another
issues is that unlike the Night Golds, I found the top right shade to be
less pigmented and prone to fall out.
Unfortunately I bought this before the store had the display
out so I bought it from the drawer without being able to swatch it, had
I been able to I wouldn't have bought this.
Its not that I don't like
the majority of colours, but its simply too frosty (something Dior is
prone to with its palettes). There is not enough contrast and I have to
rely heavily on using the brown to balance the look. Though I have used
all the colour below to show you, in reality I am likely not to use more
than two colours at a time.
My advise with this one is
that unless you like a frosty look, swatch instore before you buy because I think it looks a lot prettier in the palette than it does on.
