This Dior compact is something I've wanted for some time. I got it for myself as a 40th birthday present in October. When applied, the colors are so rich and gorgeous. Because the pigment is so deep, even the light tones have full impact. I'm really over shadows that appear to be dark in the case, but once on the skin, are barely visible.
I'm a child of the bright and colorful 80's, and the MAC make-up revolution of the 90's. A time when make-up was designed to make you look photo ready, even if you were just going to the mall. Yes, the look was heavy handed, but I loved it!
Anyhow, I don't really cake it on like back in the day, but I do enjoy putting on my face for a night out. The Dior compacts are a perfect investment in make-up and there are many color combinations offered. The colors in this compact allow me to create a deep chocolate, brown, smoky eye, or a light, shimmery neutral look. Either way, the shadow stays put for the night. Bonus points for the pretty case which feels super luxe in its design.
