Dior Mystic Metallics Bonne Etoile Eyeshadow: Review + Swatches

Cute packaging is my Achilles Heel of makeup hoarding collecting, so when I saw the new Dior eyeshadow palettes for Fall, I knew my willpower was in over its head.  I had to get Bonne Etoile, a five color palette featuring earthy brown, green, and blue shades imprinted with stars in the powder.  Stars?!  Shut up and take my money!

All of the colors in this palette have some shimmer/frost to them.  There is a dark olive with golden shimmer, silvery taupe, golden bronze, peacock blue, and light minty teal.

I am extremely impressed with the formulation of these eyeshadows.  Each one has great pigmentation and is very smooth.  The light silvery taupe shade is AMAZING on the eyes... when I have this all over the lid I can't help but stop and look each time I pass a mirror.  These photos do no justice.

The palette is quite compact, small enough to fit in the palm of my hand.  It features a mirror under the lid.

This product was quite the splurge, but I am so happy with it.  Going into fall, I know this is going to get a lot of use.  And c'mon, it has STARS! ;)

Bonne Etoile palette retails for $61 (6g/.21 oz) and was originally released exclusively with Nordstrom for its anniversary sale, but will soon be available everywhere.  The only place I have found it online is the Nordstrom website!

Have you found any to-die-for products recently?
