This Dior Bronze Couture Palette ($80) blows my mind! Yep, it’s THAT good! Ok, I’m not going to end every sentence with an exclamaition point lol. Anyway, I must rave to you about this palette. Usually these are little gimmiky things that I skip over and don’t even give a second look to. But when I was at the Dior counter, the lady helping me get my Electric Lights and Pop Diamond wasn’t an actual Dior lady, so she was a little slow. While I was waiting, I swatched this palette just for kicks, and whoa! I was so impressed!
Included in this palette is two brushes: blush & lip brushes, both with caps. And of course the beautiful D for Dior impressed in the bronzer…simply gorgeous!
Read a detailed review of all 3 parts plus close-ups and an Overall Coloruza Rating!
The bronzer is shimmery, but in the most sophisticated way. I’ve used it as a blush and it’s not OTT at all. It’s silky smooth and a perfect color for my NW20 skin.
The eyeshadow is creamy and looks very gold on the top, but once I used it, there is a more orange color to it underneath. It’s a little darker underneath. It’s seriously an amazing color though, and paired with some gold, orange, or brown shadows, wow what a look! I put it on over UDPP Sin, but without a Paint Pot, it did crease on me by the end of the day. I need to try with Cash Flow PP under it first.
The lipgloss is stunning! It has the most sublime texture – my lips were gliding over each other like butter. I think I reapplied 3 times during the day, which isn’t a lot, so it has good staying power. I just wanted it to look perfect and fresh all day, so I kept doing little touch-ups :-) It’s color is a sheer coral with golden shimmer – pretty sheer, but gorgeous!!
Overall Coloruza Rating: 5/5 for quality; 3/5 for price. Although I do feel that this palette is worth every penny, unfortunately I also feel that an $80 price tag is extremely steep, even for a stellar palette like this one. I think $60-65 would have been much more reasonable for a lot of people, and it’s quite sad that it’ll be passed up by many for this reason. Personally, I LOVE it!

do you have any swatches for the Bronzer? Is it as fine as the DIOR Shimmer powder? It would be of great help if you could answer…
