Dior Backstage Eyeshadow Palette Cool Neutrals

 

Dior Backstage Eyeshadow Palette Cool Neutrals review

Dior Backstage Eyeshadow Palette Cool Neutrals wasn't exactly on top of my wish list but it was highly recommended by an Instagrammer who has similar colorings as I. Turns out it was a must-have that I didn't know that I needed. The color composition is quite exceptional and the overall quality is excellent.

I have been saying that I don't like eyeshadow palettes that have more than 4-5 shades but I have finally realized - What I dislike are palettes that are physically large! This one has 8 eyeshadow colors plus 1 concealer (actually, not crazy about that) but the palette size is about the same as most quads and quints that I have.

Look at the colors. Aren't they gorgeous? It's like the very ideal daily palette for cool-toned folks. Maybe it's missing a topper with larger shimmer but it's pretty much perfect consisting of pale to dark shades with matte, satin, and shimmer finishes. 


A few more swatch photos to show you the colors a bit better:

I am most fond of the two mauvy mattes in this palette. They apply flawlessly with minimal powder kickups and just perfect as an all-over shade. I think the one in the first raw is technically a "sculpting powder", though.


I can easily create deep smoky looks using Dior Backstage Cool Neutrals, but I tried a simple subdued look this time.

I have purchased quite a few eyeshadow palettes over the past few months and if you ask me what is the most special, I wouldn't say Dior Cool Neutrals. But, this is the palette that I have been most frequently reaching for lately! Dior Backstage Cool Neutrals reminds me of M.A.C. Eyeshadow x 9 Dusky Rose which is another daily fave of mine that leans warmer than Cool Neutrals, and I am thinking I could just pack these two for my future business trip and I wouldn't need anything else. It's just so easy to use and yields a flattering look every time!

Cool Neutrals seems to be out of stock quite often but it is currently available on Sephora. I think this would be a worthy addition if you're looking to take advantage of the Sephora Promo ($15 off $75, $20 off $100 with the code "WELCOMEBACK") that ends tomorrow.


Thanks for being here. Have you tried anything from the Dior Backstage line?
