Queen Status!:The Dior 5 Couleurs Precious Rocks Palette Ruby

Sunday, November 19, 2017

I'm not a lucky person at all but mannn I have some awesome friends. I had been lusting, frantically lusting after the Dior Precious Rocks Palette in Ruby since I first saw it. It was limited edition, and it sold out quickly. The thoughtful Angela from Beautyandthecat surprised me with this palette and I nearly died. The palette is also available in a beautiful emerald green, for those interested in that; Not gonna lie, I was meh about the green one but after using this one, I now also want the green one. Let's have a look at Ruby!

The palette doesn't have to be pink all the time. Here, I used the brown all over the lid and the cream shade in the inner corners of my eyes.

Here, I used the brown shade as my all-over lid color again, but placed the cream shade in the center of my top and lower lids. I used the brown shade on my lower lids and finished off the look with the light pink shade in the inner corners. Eyes are lined with Mac Liquidlast Liner.

My skin type

My eyelids are oily. I use this palette with primer (I use concealer as primer) because I want it always on my lids. I've not tried it without primer, but I suppose I may one day.

How I use it

I use it many different ways, as you can see from the photos above. While it's primary a pink/red palette, it doesn't have to be if you don't want it to be. Also, I haven't used sponge applicators in so long, but the ones in this Dior palette are pretty good! I used them for both of the looks that have the browns as primary colors.

What I like about it

I love the design of the palette; it's what first attracted me to it. You know, I follow Dior's makeup artist on Instagram and I was hoping to see the palette on someone with a darker skin tone, as he often does tutorials on there, but alas! I was like f*ck it, I'll just get it myself and show it off to the world! I just knew these shades were going to look fantastic on me.

I'm not sure why, but I wasn't expecting the colors to be so rich and pigmented. The brown spread on my lid like butter; like it was meant to be there. The pink shade needed a bit more elbow grease but it got there. And that metallic Ruby shade in the center of the palette? Absolutely gorgeous! I've not been so smitten with a palette in a while; the joy is waaayyyyy up on this one.


What could be better

I've got no complaints about this palette. It is everything I thought it would be and more.
