The Dior Blue Tie Collection is all about the grey and blue smokiness, with beige-nude cheeks and lips. I am not typically a blue eyeshadow wearer, however, I think it’s a totally sophisticated way to switch up a smokey eye. I have always been a huge fan of atypical smokey eyes, using dark blues and greys, or purples instead. This palette is definitely luxurious, and something that high end cosmetic fans will love. To see photographs, swatches, and a review,
This palette is heavy-duty, and even feels thick and somewhat heavy in your hands. My husband was surprised at how good quality it felt when he picked it up. The outside is pure silver and gives you a gorgeous reflection. There is no denying the pure beauty of this palette aesthetically!
The eyeshadows are soft and velvety, and they apply with good pigment, but not great pigment. This makes them great for layering…whether you want a softer, daytime wearable smokey eye, or you want darker, richer colors for a night on the town.
I did have to dip my finger back into the shadow another time to get the above swatches, for a total of two times patting it down on my skin.
This palette also has a hidden petal-pink lip-gloss shade as you can see above. The lip-gloss is quite sheer, but gives off a pretty, moisturizing sparkle.
Overall, I really didn’t want this palette to get a bad reputation on the internet as being a total waste of your time. Whether you are a Dior lover, or you simply love high-end cosmetics, you won’t be disappointed in this palette. The eyeshadow shades are a tiny bit sheer at first, but within two coats, I was able to put down rich pigment. It is definitely a splurge makeup item, but if you love blue and grey eyeshadows, you will love this palette.
