First Experience with Dior Eye Shadows

I have never had the opportunity to try a Dior eye shadow before because they're just so dang pricey. However, I was lucky enough to swap some of my unloved makeup over on in exchange for a Dior 5-shadow palette, and was really excited to try it out. 

I LOVE these shadows. They applied like butter. They went on so smoothly, blended so easily they practically blended themselves, and all day they stayed put and looked gorgeous and shimmery and perfect. I kept stopping in front of mirrors to check out the pretty colors on my eyelids. I think this is one of those cases where you really do get what you pay for. I wish I had the fundage to buy more Dior eye shadows, but I don't. I guess I'll have to add them to Christmas and birthday wish lists!
