This Backstage collection launch was so hyped! Out of the entire line, I was drawn only by this cool palette #002.
Shades: Oh, gosh, I’m obsessed with them!
Especially with the matte ones!
Mattes: these are the shades, which pushed me into purchasing this palette.
They are of such a good quality. Easy to apply, pack and blend out. They don’t show any fallout.
Satin: These ones are also beautiful and they are so easy to apply. Of course they aren’t the best in my stash but still, they are so worthy. The only thing that freaks me out is the shimmer fallout during application.
That’s why I have to work neatly with them.
Swatches of the first row:
Satin (like a highlighter) and matte (it’s also a contour product):
The second row- these are beautiful satins here:
The third row: the lower two are my all time faves. And the first one, which is pale pink is so great for blending when I want to mute this or that color.
The very first shade is actually a cream base.
It’s good texture-wise and very gliding over the skin.
All eyeshadows apply well over it. But it’ll be a good option only for non-aging or oily lids.
If your lids are aging, oily or hooded, the products will crease within 3 hours.
One more issue is that the base becomes dusted with eyeshadow bits over time.
Here I used the contour shade as the main one and added some Mauve as well.
I heard a lot of them complaining that the packaging here is cheap and ugly. I don’t agree! I’m more into such neat palettes, which don’t have any frills about them.
Names of the shades:
I’m absolutely head over heels with this cool palette! It’s so difficult to find cool-toned shades nowadays.
Red and orange seem to be taking over the world. But good cools are so rare.
I was also impressed with the price. You know, it’s so affordable for a Dior palette.
