Dior Trianon Make-up Palette #001 Favorite and Rouge Dior #531 Rose Crinoline from Trianon Spring 2014 Collection, Review & Swatches

I was detrained not to get any "pastel" eye shadows this Spring but this one made me change my mind...

Dior's make-up palette for glowing eyes & fresh complexion. Dior released two of these palettes, but in Germany we received only #001 Favorite. You can see them swatched together here. Favorite has given me a feeling of luxury as no other make-up product had done before. I was very excited already after removing the transparency and taking out the grey ultra smooth velvet pouch out of the box.

The experience is full of pretty details such as a small tag indicating some details (Made in France, 6g, the name of the palette etc.) and the magnetic closure which works like a magic. The backside of the pouch has a pocket for the cute brush with a bow on it. Aww the tiny bow has letters C D on it. Sunny reports that she had made the kitty test on the brush and that it is probably real hair. I also believe it is made of goat.

The palette consist of a blush in the center and four eye shadows around it. Dior defines of the these eye shadows as "eyeliner" shade. It is a black shade with matte finish but luckily it is not as dry as some of Dior's eye liner shades in their glow palettes (remember Silver Glow?) so it can also be used to define the crease.

Other three shades are a very light peachy pink with satin to metallic finish, a semi opaque grass green with satin finish and a gorgeous bronze shade with satin finish. I think after seeing how the bronze plays with the light once applied wet, I was sold on this palette.

Blush in the middle is a rather light one and as the name suggests gives a fresh complexion. It does show on me once applied with a dense brush (like Tom Ford Cheek Brush). I would say I am the border though, anyone darker than NC25 may not be able to use it as a blush. I compared that blush at the counter to the #946 Pink Reverie which is also released with this collection. Pink Reverie is a lighter pink with more blue undertones.

Once I applied the palette to the eyes, its magic was kind of over for me. Although it gave a nice soft look, which is great for spring time, I was not impressed with how the eye shadows performed. Although they are very soft and finely milled, and come to life once applied wet, they somehow lacked the pigmentation in my book. But maybe it is just me because I like very pigmented eye shadows. For the below look I used the pink at the inner corner, bronze and green on the lid and used black for definition and along the lash line as a liner.

I combined this look with the new permanent lipstick released together with Trianon collection, Rouge Dior #531 Rose Crinoline. It is a perfect peachy nude for the upcoming season. I find the new formula of Dior is also very hydrating and pigmented.

Below you can see lipstick, blush and eye shadow combo all together. A soft green eye, very subtle blush and nude lips. I had some issues during application, like blush kicking off some powder which then covers the eye shadows (had to be puffed away) and green muddies the gorgeous bronze on the eyes once applied close. I think the most interesting part of this journey was unpacking this pretty compact and getting to know the details. I don't know if this experience is worth the price though...

Final thoughts: Great for those with fair skin or ones who would like a soft eye look.

How important is the packaging for you? Would you prefer affordable prices coming with less quality packaging?

  1. You are right about the pigmentation and the shades are not in harmony with each other. I am not very moved with Dior's spring collection this year. Great review :)

    1. Thanks, yes I know I was thinking those shades together might be interesting but on the eyes they didn't move me either.

    2. I LOVED it on you!!
      Being a fashion designer & consultant, I think of Spring as more of subtle-pastely contrasts and not matchy-matchy. I'd recommend trying their Trianon mono eye shadows in matte- if there were a pastel that could melt from the heat of your fingers- it would be that!

      I'm looking to find one in the US, would you happen to know where I could find it?

    3. Hi Sheetanic,
      i remember hearing that this particular quad was not released in US. Maybe it was some sort of exclusive to a store? Anyway your best bet is to check out ebay and if you can't find it or it is too expensive, I can get it for you since I have still seen it around, contact me via twitter or mail me at sarabeautime(at)gmail.com.

  2. The packaging is super pretty and cute but what's inside counts the most to me. I don't think these colours would work on me honestly, especially if they are so soft. What I don't get is the blush being in the middle of the palette, it's nice to look at but not really that practical like you said. I adore Rose Crinoline on you though!

    1. Yes Rose Crinoline is so gorgeous! I like wearing it and it is super hydrating as you know. Blush being in the middle means a man designed it, lol, who never wore makeup himself :-p

  3. Thanks for the link love :-) Rose Crinoline looks gorgeous on you Sara. I agree the eye shadows are very soft, and one of the main reasons I didn't get any. A pretty packaging is a bonus, but it's the quality of the product that matters most!

    1. Hi Lily,
      yes I completely agree with you, quality is good with this one though, it is just not as dramatic as I would like it to be, but hey, this is spring and maybe I should wait until Fall comes ;-)

    1. Hi Rads,
      yes very pretty packaging. These are also almost invisible on me, lol. I feel the fair ladies have much more choice *sniff*

  5. Hey Sara, oh yeah that blush kicks up SERIOUS dust! I would normally want something that's a bit more pigmented as well. I'm actually fine with the eyeshadows except for the green. I think this palette remains more of a collector's item, though it is definitely an improvement from last year's bow palette.

    1. I was able to hold myself for last year's rosy bow themed one, didn't call my name so this year I thought hey why to give it a try... I hope next year's will be ever better ;-)

  6. I love pastels, but something was a bit 'off' with these for me too -- a kind of dustiness? Really pretty in theory (I love looking at dusty, sepia, girly photos on pinterest, lol) but in real life it just looks plain powdery on me :(
    I really like the placement you did here, though! Sort of hallucinatory shades blending into each other :)

    1. Exactly, these look dusty, but not in a pretty way lol.
      Can it be your imagination about blending Kate? Because all i see is a muddy eye look :-p

  7. It is such a gorgeous looking palette though! Colors kind of remind me of Suqqu Hisuidama from last Spring, but a bit more dusty in final effect? I was wondering if you applied on your eyes dry or wet?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Belly,
      yes Hisuidama would be this one done right! ;-)
      I applied wet here, dry would be no color pay off on me and on the camera it wouldn't show.

  8. There's something strange about this palette in my opinión, maybe it's just that the included shades aren't flattering on my skintone... however, I'm interested in the lipstick, could it be posible that there's a nude-ish shade that works for my lips other tan Nars Chelsea Girls?

    1. Hi Anne,
      I haven't tried Nars Chelsea Girls but all I can say is that I am loving Rose Crinoline. I am not sure if it is that "nude" though, it is rather a soft spring shade with moderate brightness.

      I hope you like it. If you are fairer than me, you may even love it! ;-)

  10. The look is really super pretty on you Sara! I'll swatch the palette this week and see but I think I'll pass on it. The blush and light pink are not doing much for me. The packaging is gorgeous but I would have to love everything inside to consider it.

    1. Hi Icaria,
      yes, packaging is the highlight here. It was an experience on its own to open it but if i knew it wouldn't look that good on me, I would also spend my money on something else.

  11. This look is SO pretty on you but I have passed on this collection-am TRYING to be GOOD! Oh I did buy 3 of the lipsticks from the collection tho. Is that good? or bad? Am not sure....

  12. I have to comment on this. I bought this palette yesterday, and I must say that you are absolutely right, it goes really well with blondes. I am very pale Scandinavian woman, and for me this palette works great! Enough colour for me. But I am the one who uses the lightest foundations etc on Earth, haha.

    I got a lot of compliments when I wore all shades from this palette yesterday and I must say that I am definitely going to keep using it. I was a bit sceptical about the green color but it turned out fit perfect, it was a surprise for me. This really lightens up my face.

    Great review anyway!
