Fall collections are trickling in! So far I've seen the fall collections for Chanel, Laura Mercier, Giorgio Armani, and now Dior. After seeing Karen's fabulous article and swatches on Makeup and Beauty Blog for the Dior Jazz Club Collection Fall 2009, I went to Nordstrom to check out the collection myself.
This is what I came home with:
Smoky Jazz Eye Palette 001, the Total Eyelook Makeup Clutch for Liner, Brow, and Eyeshadows - they've included a nice brush!
Left to right: Liner, Eyebrow, Matte Eyeshadow, Iridescent Eyeshadow x2, Topcoat
Night Butterfly 173 Quint (5-Colour Eyeshadow) - this was lighter than I expected based on promotional pictures floating around the web, but Karen's swatches gave me a good idea of what it looked like in real life before I stopped by the counter:
Black Plum 981 Nail Vernis:
Also picked up the Creme de Glosses and Addict Reflect Lipglosses, but for some reason these are not photographing well. For great pics/swatches, check out Karen's blog!
Some other smokey eye palette variations for a classic smokey eye or soft smokey eye:
Dolce & Gabbana Champagne (Smooth Color Eye Quad):
Dior Sky Glow 009 Quint (5 Colour Iridescent Eyeshadow):
Chanel Smoky Eyes 93 (Quadra Eyeshadow):
MAC Smoking Eyes Quad - Next to Nothing, Satin Taupe, Showstopper, Smoking:
MAC Trip Palette Sultry Eyes - Sun Cruise Gloss, Freckletone Lipstick, Filament Lustre Eyeshadow, French Grey Satin Eyeshadow, Carbon Matte Eyeshadow (found a month ago at my local CCO):
Looking for some other smokey eye colors? To do a smokey eye, I often layer different shades with a black since blacks tend to turn blueish on my skin. Check out the 5 part series for swatches of dark shimmery eyeliners and shadows separated by color category:
Smokey Eyes Part 1
Smokey Eyes Part 2 (Greys & Blacks)
Smokey Eyes Part 3 (Black Golds)
Smokey Eyes Part 4 (Mauves & Plums)
Smokey Eyes Part 5 (Blues & Greens)
