One of the two quints Dior released with Trianon collection, #954 Pink Pompadour is a composition of pinks, silver and purple, much like the blooming flowers, it emits the happy, carefree spring vibes.

Pink Pompadour caught my attention when the first promo pictures were released but I convinced myself that another "pastel" palette which I wouldn't use that often was a waste of money. After swatching it at the counter, I started pondering again. At one point I decided I couldn't skip it. We were talking about pinks and violets after all and the middle shade was too pretty to leave behind.

Coming home, I immediately turned on my camera to shoot some photos before my fingers were all over the palette but while taking the pictures, I have seen that one of the shades were loose. The others didn't also seem to be properly glued. I have head these type of problems before with Dior compacts but this was far worse, so I decided to return it.
At the counter, i checked Dior Make-up Palette in #001 Favorite once more and decided that to get that one instead, which I thought would be more unique to my stash. I didn't end up loving Favorite and I started thinking I made a huge mistake. So off I went to get Pink Pompadour again...

Below you can see swatches of first the middle shade then starting from upper left corner in clock wise fashion. Middle shade is truly exceptional. It is a semi sheer pearl effect eye shadow, very much like the nail polish #187 Perle, also from Trianon collection. It layers beautifully with other shades. There are two pinks, one is a very pale frosty pink which can be used at the inner corner to highlight. Then there is a medium pink, which is very wearable since it is not frost nor shiny, it has a beautiful satin finish. Grey shade is metallic and very close to Dior Mono #87 Gris Montaigne. The purple shade has a gorgeous sheen and dark enough to define the eye look.

Below you can see the palette in action. I don't know why I am so pink on this pic, but I swear it was not the blush nor the fall out from the palette ;-) For the mid of the lid I mixed silver and mid-toned pink and used purple at the crease. I highlighter the inner corner with light pink.

I may not like pastels, but purples and pinks are out of this equation, here is the complete look, Corail Bagatelle on the cheeks, Rouge Dior in Courtisane on the lips.

Final thoughts: If you like the color combination, be sure to check Pink Pompadour out. It is a solid palette with pretty springy shades.
What else do you have in your wish list before Spring comes?
