Christian Dior 5 Couleurs Croisette Edition - Aurora

In this and some future posts, I will be sharing some new additions to my makeup collection from the House of Dior.  The new postings will have a combination of some limited edition and regular collection items.  I'd like to kick things off with information on a limited edition item as it's still available for purchase.

This summer, Dior brings us the Croisette Collection, which offers two 5 Couleurs Palettes, one described by Dior as "exploring aquatic pastels," named Swimming Pool [224] and the other, which is "reinterpreting the ochre of mediterranean lands," named Aurora [654].

Each palette contains 5 eyeshadow shades in a mirrored compact with 2 sponge applicators (7 grams of product; Retail $60) and the signature Dior velvet pouch.  The five shades of Aurora are light pink, ivory,  deep gold, burnt orange/coral, and deep brown.

Here is a close-up of the palette and swatches:

Overall rating: Booyah!  

This is the perfect palette to recreate summer sunsets and the shades are versatile to work on most skin tones.

What are your thoughts of this palette?
