After recently attending an event held by Dior & Vogue in Harrods introducing the Croisette Summer Collection (post here), I went home with a couple of my favourite pieces, two of which included the Dior 1 Couleur Eye Gloss in 750 Sunset and 560 Tan and the Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 654 Aurora. Part  of the collection was very pastel/sorbet based which, as beautiful as the colours were, I personally wouldn't wear. However the other part of the collection was very sunset inspired, including some golden and brown shades which I adore!

First up, the 1 Couleur Eye Gloss,  being unlike anything I have ever tried before these were quite exciting! There are four shades in the collection, above are the shades 750 Sunset (left) and 560 Tan (right). Unlike the name suggests these do not have a glossy finish, when applied they have a cooling tingly sensation and then dry a glittery powder. As Dior's National Makeup Artist, Jamie Coombs, suggested they work best when used as a primer before eyeshadow, which brings me onto the next item...

5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 654 Aurora is very sunset based being a very warm palette that includes golden, orange and brown tones. Dior being my favourite high end eyeshadow brand of course didn't disappoint, the eyeshadows are pigmented, blendable and creamy. They are all very shimmery however so many one to steer away from if you're a matt eyeshadow girl.
