SwatchTime Dior Holiday 2012 Palette


For my birthday, about a month ago, a friend gifted me with this lovely Dior Holiday Palette. (I love her for fueling my obsession with high-end makeup! It was such a nice gift) Now I know you've seen this one before in my haul posts but I wanted to give you a closer look at some of the swatches. 

Here you can see the gorgeous velvet pouch and a mini size DiorShow mascara attached to it. Perfect for travel! 

Super sleek packaging. Black shine with classic silver Dior embossing.

It even comes with a plastic protectant that specifies the names of each product. Really handy! 

It comes with a mini Diorshow mascara, an eye primer, a brown brow tint/wax, the three shadows, a dual ended brush and a brown pencil liner!

From left to right: Brown Brow Tint, Darkest Brown Shadow, Medium Shimmer Brown Shadow, Off-White Shimmer Shadow and Brown Pencil Liner.

This Dior Holiday Palette, released for the 2012 Holidays, is really a very neutral palette. I know I can use this for an everyday sort of smokey eye or a dramatic brown smokey eyes. This can also be used just for a shimmery neutral eye, and depending on how you feel that day you can play it up, as in more pigmentation on your eye, or play it down and use a light hand for a subtle and natural look. 
So even with three colours, I find it very versatile! And it's great for traveling when you can't bring too many items with you. 
I haven't use it yet but when I do I will share with you ladies a FOTD :)

What do you ladies think of this palette? Have you guys gotten any holiday palettes this year?
