The Dior Stylish Move (no.5) eyeshadow quint ($120NZ) has 5 different variations shades of a soft purple. Now let’s get down to the nitty griity! I have been lusting over Dior for a while now but as you can see in Aotearoa (with almost all makeup) it is a cosmetic brand that is extremely overpriced and therefore, something I couldn't quite bring myself to splurge on...well until recently! My first introduction to Dior was the Dior Addict Lip Glow in Coral and let me tell ya I love the shizz outta this product!!! I got this baby as a celebratory treat to myself for gaining full registration. Pigmented, subtle, comfortable on the lips and is a customisable colour, unique to my pH levels, totally justifiable in my eyes. So I got to researching Dior a little more and was interested in their shadows, I think I just got caught up in a Dior haze . In my opinion there isn't alot of buzz when it comes to Dior shadows but i thought it would a great luxury purchase and I can’t say I was right. Although I looked at swatches online and in store I am underwhelmed by the shadows overall pigmentation, colour transfer from the pan and staying power.
The positives: It applies smoothly and contains no scent. Stylish Move creates a soft neutral purple look that goes with any outfits and occasion. You can use the deeper purple to get a smoky look. The packaging is to die for and the little instructions are an amusing touch (something all Dior products have). The smoky plum is the most pigmented of the bunch but can be sheered out. Let’s also take a moment to talk about that centre shade!! . I know it's just a generic highlighter shade, but there's something beautiful about it. This shade is a light creamy shimmer that has slight gold with a pink sheen. A lovely soft shadow that applies rather smoothly.
