FOTD Friday: Dior Chic Palette


It’s Friday, it’s Friday, it’s Friday…yeah yeah, it’s Friday, it’s Friday..*does the Bankhead bounce*


“B…seriously, what is the Bankhead Bounce?
And WHY are you always doing it?”

I just know someone out there is thinking this….

I know..I’m ALWAYS doing that dance, uh? As an 80’s babies who grew up in the 90’s, this song was a huge hit in my suburban hood. Not that I was allowed to listen to rap music….I had friends though. And a mad cool babysitter who would bust this song and do the dance. I enjoyed it because it was only dance that didn’t require any feet movements because…..um, I can’t dance. Shoulder poppin’? I can do that!

And that, boys and girls is why I love the Bankhead Bounce ’til this day.

Here’s a video for reference….if you (like me) are allergic to rap music videos, be careful with this one..hehe, you were warned.



On to the look….every once in awhile, I feel like I need to treat myself. I mean, why not? I’m fairly responsible. I pay my bills on time, go to work on time (mostly) and don’t go around plotting ways to destroy the lives of others. So why not TREAT myself?

Check out Dior’s Chic Palette Eye


…Sephora’s photo is so much prettier than mine. I will say that this little palette is a bit pricey. $45?! Yeah…that’s a stretch. But it didn’t hurt my wallet too much as I haven’t purchased make-up in quite a while…except a mascaras and a few (hehe, dozen) polishes.

Here’s how Sephora describes the colors:

Shades include:
- Shimmering bronze
- Ivory sheen
- Brownish green sheen
- Light mauve gray sheen
- Plum sheen
- Shimmering grayish black

I would say that they are pretty accurate and extremely wearable. This is my first time dabbling in Dior’s shadows and I’m impressed. I love how the colors are sheer yet build-able. I’m learning to have an appreciation for colors that can go on lightly and instantly look “intense” with a little more application.

The look..

EYES:
Plum sheen (inner lid)
Shimmering bronze (outer-V)
Shimmering grayish black (crease)
Clinique’s Almost Peach e/s (highlight)
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Clinique Brush-On Cream liner in Black
_____ mascara (I’m reviewing it on Monday)

CHEEKS:
MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW45
NARS Crazed ( I think I forgot that a little goes a loooong way, hehe)

LIPS:
NARS Afghan Red lipstick
NYC gloss…can’t tell b/c the color rubbed off but it is beautiful.



Why does oatmeal cook TOO fast? Seriously….mine was burning after 3 minutes. WTF?

Lemme get out of here before I’m late to work.

Have a wonderful weekend, family!! And if anyone is in Orlando for the FAMU vs. BCC Florida Classic, let me know!

    I’m such a sucker for the packaging and would buy the palatte on that alone. However, I am a fan of Dior shadows so the purchase would make sense! For a richer look, try dabbing a brush in water before using the shadow. It’s like getting two looks for the price of one!
