The Luxury Buy



I think when it comes to beauty, there are certain items where you can confidently buy drugstore (nail polishes and lipsticks) and others where it’s a bit more hit and miss (foundations, eyeshadows), and those areas are usually where I like to indulge and go for higher end brands. I recently indulged in the Dior Christmas Palette – Golden Shock. It’s so beautifully packaged and the colour pay off is creamily gorgeous. Did I need the palette? Definitely not as I own a few similar colours already, but the star of the show is the central golden shimmer shade, which I’m supposing is the “shock” shade. It dabs on easily and really adds a festive touch without looking OTT.

I love the lighter shades for creating a gorgeous taupey but shimmery eye too, but obviously, the main appeal for most will be the deep amethyst shade which makes a smokey eye pop. I’d say this would make the ideal gift for the beauty junkie that has everything, or for the slightly more experimental smokey eye lover.

Would you wear a purple golden smokey eye?

    Ooh I definitely love the sound of a purple toned smokey eye! I will have to have a look at this palette 🙂
    Also I thought you might really like the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in the colour “Sex Machine” (raunchy, I know!). It is a combination of Mac Soar and CT’s Pillow Talk in a softer, creamier chubby pencil. One of my faves! Have a lovely Christmas! xx
