Dior Mystic Metallics: Bonne Étoile 384 Couture Color Eyeshadow Palette

Affiliate Links        

Dior Bonne Étoile 384 Couture Color Eyeshadow Palette is this season's star product for eyes ($61, limited-edition, at Nordstrom). The palette has the most beautiful embossed star patterns. Each color is richly pigmented with varying degrees of shimmer and sparkle. Even those who avoid shimmers will love this one. I am not usually brave enough to wear bright teals or greens on the eyes but the colors in this palette are deep enough to not be over-the-top. The colors include a deep rich khaki olive gold, a chocolate brown with gold flecks, a sparkly silvery-taupe, a deeper green-teal sparkle and a soft seafoam green shimmer. The shimmers adhere well to the eye, but you still need a good primer to avoid fall out from the teal and taupe (I experienced just a slight bit). Five colors on one eye can be challenging to pull off, but the colors layer nicely together. I played with this today and found the combinations to be endless. Applying the darker shades with a slightly damp brush intensified the colors nicely for a more dramatic look.




Swatched:



I don't own any other palette similar, although I suspect each shade is similar to other individual colors. I think you can probably achieve a similar effect with some Urban Decay or even MAC singles, although I do think this Dior palette will be a bit more conservative and easier to wear for those who prefer neutrals. I don't own many teals or greens so this was perfect for me. I'm still testing out the other option Constellation 864, but I can say right now that I definitely prefer this Bonne Étoile 384.

You can find Bonne Étoile 384 in stores at Nordstrom now and also online at Nordstrom.com.

  14. interesting colors. I like the brown the most. The left most one reminds me of a color in wet and wild palette. Always wondered how that one would look.

  15. Gahhh--I was going to pass on this--until I saw your swatches. Then I just caved and had to have it. Right when I was going to order it, it suddenly wasn't available--I was still able to order it though--I SO want it now.

  16. I'm so looking forward to having this. I am excited about that khaki. I can't pull off 5 colors on my eyes but I love the different combinations that it seems you can make with this palette. Gorgeous pictures and I'm so glad I've got this on its way.

  19. Oh my god, look at that shimmer! I don't think I was expecting quite so much complexity from this one -- every other post I've seen it in has made it look like something I could pass on, but the way you've caught the shimmer is absolutely breathtaking.

    I feel like it's a fleeting feeling, but for the moment? I am completely in love with the way you've captured these shades.
