Review: Christian Dior Cannage Color Collection Eye Palette

I have always been wanting to own a Christian Dior Eye palette, especially having read raves on their silky smooth texture and good color payoffs. The higher end price point is one of the main factor that is stopping me from trying it out for myself (even though the swatches that i did at Dior's counter managed to tempt me quite a few times).

Thanks to my sister, who is a frequent traveler, she managed to snag a Dior palette from the Cannage Color Collection at an irresistable price of S$69 for 8 eye colors and 2 double end applicators. This palette is a Krisflyer exclusive, meaning it will not be released to the Dior counters in town.

Krisflyer Exclusive @ S$69.oo

Purple patent leather with Signature Cannage stitching

Colors that are versatile for day and night

I am not too sure of Dior's color numbering, according to the label at the back of the palette, the palette is made up of the following colors:

1. 3 Eyeshadows from 1 couleur - 965 - 005 - 515
2. 3 Eyeshadows from Couleurs Iridescent - 929 - 822 - 682
3. 2 Eyeshadows from 5 Couleurs - 096 - 194

The eye colors swatches beautifully and Dior's eye colors truly live up to its name/rave from the reviews in various forums. I can foresee myself succumbing to the temptation of future Dior eye palettes release.

Main Ingredients: Talc, Mica, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Nylon-12, Silica, Magnesium Stearate, Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Bis-Behenyl/Isostearyl/Phytosteryl Dimer Dilinoleyl Dimer Dilinoleate, Triethoxycaprylysilane, Tocopherol.
