Review & Swatches: Dior Mystic Metallic Bonne Etoil Eyeshadow

When I first saw this Dior eyeshadow palette on Allison's blog (aka Amarixe), I knew instantly that I HAVE TO get it, whatever it takes. I researched everywhere online, it was exclusive to Nordstrom website for a while before hitting the counters, I thought "if it was exclusively in America, no way that it is going to be available in UK any time soon" So you could imagine my excitement when I opened the Selfridges email and saw it is now exclusively at Selfridges!

The palette is part of Dior's Fall 2013 collection. There are two eyeshadow palettes in this collection: 

864 Constellation - Purple, pinky and brown

384 Bonne Etoil - blue, khaki and brown

I chose to have the Bonne Etoil palette because the colour combination are more special & eye catching.

When I got my hand on the palette, I just sat there & admired it for at least 5 minutes, literally. The embossing stars are just so cute & exquisitely adorable.

I own another Dior eyeshadow palettes, I never disappointed with their colour pay off, same applies to this palette.

The 5 colours are just very unique.

I included both shoots of the swatches. Combining the both, I hope I can show the different shimmer to the colours. However, I don't think my camera & lighting do the colours justice. They are incredibly beautiful.

Each colour is one swipe on my arm, so you can compare the intensity of each colour. The green at the bottom right hand side is the faintest, and it is not as sparkly as its neighbours.

Khaki seems to be the leading trend on eye makeup in this Fall, this palette is not only bang on trend this season, but the colours are muted/taupey enough to wear all year around.

I am just loving it so much that this palette will be my staple for the coming months. The only thing is: I don't want to spoil the stars by using the shades too much!

Are you like me who has bought the same palette? I also want to know what you think if you have bought the other palette 864 Constellation.

Selfridges exclusivity normally runs for two weeks, so I would guess it should be available countrywide by mid August.

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
