Dior Garden Pastels 5-Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches and Pictures

January 8, 2012

Besides the gorgeous Garden Roses, I also picked up Dior Garden Pastels 5-Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette from the Spring 2012 Garden Party Collection.

Just like Garden Roses, Garden Pastels comes in Dior’s signature glossy blue compact that is portable and classy. On the inside is a huge mirror (always a plus), two double-ended sponge applicators and 5 gorgeous pastel shadows with the prettiest rose patterns embossed on them.

There is a chartreuse (top left), a white (top right), a turquoise (bottom right), a pale yellow (bottom left) and a baby pink (center). The colors are all super pretty and the wider variety also makes this palette more versatile and wearable. The shadows again apply with a creamy texture and slightly frosty with very fine shimmer and good pigmentation.

Below I am wearing the chartreuse in the inner half of the eyelid, turquoise on the outer half of the eyelid and baby pink on the lower eye. I also added a cat eye with Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner and a pair of Korean fake lashes and mascara on the bottom lashes to complete the look.

    Love it, the colours are so vibrant. What liquid liner do you use?

    The colors look truly lovely on you. Initially, I thought these colors would be unwearable, but now I can’t to pick one up. Btw, which palette did you like better- garden rose or garden pastel?

      Thanks Grace. Personally, I like Garden Roses more (I’m a sucker for purples/pinks) but Garden Pastels is definitely more wearable.

    WOW! i also thought this palette was slightly unrealistic in terms of wear-ability, but you put it together beautifully. totally tempted to purchase this now. I like this palette better than the garden roses one, although that one is pretty as well.

    Hi! I love the look that you created with this palette! I was wondering, does this palette contain parabens? I’m allergic to that certain ingredient and I really would like to purchase this. Thanks!

    I have been in love with this palette ever since it came out and considered buying it several times but waited since I have greens (am really into them) and have a lot of eyeshadows but finally decided I had to have the last one available locally since I knew I would be sorry if I did not get it. It is simply gorgeous, the colors, the presentation, case, everything, perfect for spring and summer. This one is definitely my fave of the limited edition Diors that came out this spring, I adore the clutches but definitely prefer the colors in this.
