Hello! Last week or so, I received the Dior 5 Couleurs Couture Colour Eyeshadow Palette ~ 034 Gris Gris for free, for I have collected 15 bar codes that are on each box of any Dior product. 034 Gris Gris is a limited edition palette, which came out with the Dior Gris Montaigne Collection for Spring 2011.
I knew I had to get 034 Gris Gris the first time I saw it in the promotion pictures, thus it was easy to choose this palette as the ‘freebie’.
First off, some product pics!
Dior 5 Couleurs Couture Colour Eyeshadow Palette ~ 034 Gris Gris
034 Gris Gris is a cool toned grey palette. All shades, except for the frosty silver on the bottom right, and the darkest brownish black in the center, all shades have a frosty, kind of metallic finish. As you can see from the palette closeup and swatch, the frosty silver has fine shimmer to it, and the darkest brownish black has a chunky glitter overlay.
I’ve been looking for a grey eyeshadow palette for quite a long time, and I think 034 Gris Gris is a good pick, since the mix of silvery greys are pretty easy to wear with my skintone.
Today, I finally got the chance to do a look with it! The weather over here has become very springlike, so here is my take on a grey spring look!

Took down the steps on this really quick and simple look! You know that my technique is mostly the same, haha… but I hope, it’s still helpful for some of you! ;)
Ok… indeed super easy, huh?
Onto the complete look! Let me apologize for my messy hair in advance!
Can you tell, I’m terribly fed up with my camera that always washes out the colors? Ahh… it’s time for a DSLR!
See how frizzy my hair is? Argh, old issue of mine… :/
I have not been wearing too much pink lately, because I have been obsessed with peach and nude colors, but today I felt to wear pink for a fresh springy look! I’m quite disappointed with the Lunasol Illuminating Highlight 02 Sheer Beige, which I ordered from BonBon Cosmetics, because it doesn’t really do much in terms of highlighting, if you can tell from the pictures.
Wearing these cute hummingbird earrings today, which was a gift from my sister!
I’m absolutely loving Rouge Coco Shine Lipsticks for they are so incredibly light and smooth, yet the color still shows up quite nicely, unlike other lipsticks with a sheer formula. I got to compare the new Dior Addict Lipstick with it at the counter today, and I must say that Chanel Rouge Coco Shine wins over Dior Addict.
First, the color payoff of Chanel Rouge Coco Shine is much better, and secondly, the formula is a lot smoother, with an almost moist feel to it. Also, Rouge Coco Shine does not have shimmer to it, which is advantageous for people with dry lip lines. Dior Addict Lipstick however, do have shimmer to it.
I think, it sounds like I really dislike the new Dior Addict Lipsticks, but actually I am not! Just saying that Chanel Rouge Coco Shine is the winner when compared. :)
| Update: 09-05-2011 | I got to check out the Dior Addict Lipsticks closer, and found out that not all shades have shimmer!
So guess what? I got more Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lippies today! To be precise, two of them and a Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss! Blog post on that coming soon!
Oh, and I know that I’ve been using quite a few new products that I have not shown or talked about yet, but I’m thinking of doing a separate review post on these. Therefore, stay tuned!
