Dior Couture Colour Eyeshadow Palette in 764 Fairy Golds - Review

When I saw this eyeshadow palette at the Dior counter at Christmas, I fell in love instantly. However I wasn't sure if I was willing to fork out the money for it. For all the eyeshadows I own, I don't normally wear it that often. I ummed and ahhed over this palette and its counterpart for a couple of days and went back to the counter a couple of more times. As you can see I succumbed to my desire... I never said I had any willpower! 

Of the two palettes released as part of Dior's Holiday collection, I decided (with the advice of the sales assistant) to purchase 764 Fairy Golds. I must say I am extremely pleased with my first Dior eyeshadow purchase. It is an exceptional product and definitely worth the price.

The palette of course includes all the luxe features you expect from a brand like Dior. Including the classy packaging and the velvet pouch for storage. I love the navy and silver colour scheme. 

The Fairy Golds palette has five shades ranging from a soft champagne to a sparkly gold. To me it is the perfect mix of neutrals that are still exciting. Each shade is buttery soft and highly pigmented. It is a dream to apply. The shades are so soft, they blend very easily. 

I have really been impressed by the wear of these shadows. They last all day on the lid with no fading or creasing - with or without a primer. You can't ask for much more than that! They also look gorgeous on the lid and there is no fall out either. 

I have no regrets on my $99 splurge for this palette. I love it and am so glad to have it in my collection. I have already been wearing it heaps and you can hardly tell. I highly recommend this palette - it is pricey but completely worth it. Fairy Golds is part of the Holiday Collection and I am not sure if it is still available but if it is - BUY IT! 

Did you pick up anything from the Dior Holiday Collection? Have you tried Dior eyeshadows before? 


  1. Such a pretty palette! I've often been tempted by Dior palettes but have never actually bought one. My luxe palette purchases have been Chanel and Tom Ford :)

    1. I have Chanel & TF too but I think the Dior exceeds those in quality :)

  2. Gorgeous! I really don't need another eyeshadow palette, but this is so tempting.

    Thanks for the fantastic swatches :)

    1. I didn't 'need' it but it was calling out 'buy me, buy me' haha
