My Pick from Dior Fall 2012 – Golden Jungle 001 Golden Khaki Review

Dior Fall 2012 Make Up Collection has made its way to Singapore. Out of so many brands’ fall collection, I must sat that Dior tempted me the most. The collection is wide and the products are gorgeous. Moreover I am a sucker for neutral colors, so when I saw the promo pictures I immediately knew that I am going to get few products from this collection.

Here are the things that I bought last weekend plus the samples given by the SA:

I am happy that I got the new Dior Addict Perfume samples. It smells sweet and fresh! I like it! I also got the mini 5 couleurs eyeshadow which is insanely cute! I don’t know when I would be using this but looking at it already makes me feel so happy :) I got few skincare sample and mini mascara.

In this post, I am going to review Golden Jungle 001 Golden Khaki and in the end of the post you can see my FOTD with that palette :)

Dior Golden Jungle is available in two colors; 001 Golden Khaki and 002 Golden Brown. I must admit that Golden brown really tempted me. The matte dark brown is just so pretty and the lip color is more appealing to me. However since I knew that I would definitely get 5 Couleurs Golden Savannah, I skipped Golden brown and took Golden Khaki with me. I don’t own many khaki palette; I don’t even think I have one. Most of my khaki eyeshadows are single eyeshadow or part of my neutral color palette. I am sure I have made the right decision to get this color :)

 

Firstly, the packaging is superb! It made of metal case and it’s very heavy. Heavy casing gives me the impression that I am not cheated. I am paying a hefty price tag of S$100 for this, so I don’t like it when I got a lightweight and simple packaging. The leopard (or should I say Army?) print of this is gorgeous. There are 3 colors in this palette; a creamy silvery with minimal glitter on the top, a matte dark brown and a khaki green with a taupe undertones.

This palette is also comes with a lip color. Many eye & lip palette offers sultry and beautiful colors but the eyeshadow will eventually mess the lip color. I ended up never using the lip palette anymore which is wasted. The lip color is a sheer coral with glitter. I am liking the color a lot. One thing that makes me buy this palette is that they separate the lip color with the eyeshadow. It is so thoughtful of them to design this palette with a cover on the lip color. This will prevent the eyeshadow to mess the lip color.

Dior often launch beautifully printed eyeshadows, but many of the colors are not wearable. That’s the main reason why I am not buying those eyeshadows. But I gave up on this, this one is very pretty and the colors are just versatile. I think this one is really worth it especially this is a ‘limited edition’ thing :)

I did a look with Golden Khaki :)

    The khaki olive colors look great on you!! And the mini 5 eyeshadow palette is too cute!

  2. Wow–that is SO beautiful! I totally passed on the Golden Jungle palette, but I think we only have the Golden Brown one available here, otherwise I would have been more interested (I am obsessed with khaki shadows!). And Golden Savannah!!! *swoon* I SO want this palette. I’ve been trying to talk myself out of it, but it’s so beautiful. And that little mini 5-couleurs is adorable! Why don’t they have cute stuff like that here that they give out?!?

      Really? I don’t know that they don’t release the khaki shade in the US!! :( Golden Savannah is a must have I think!! They MIGHT have the mini eyeshadow but u need the ask the SA :)

      • I know–the khaki shade is SO much prettier in my opinion. We got only the Golden Brown for the Jungle palette, but we also got Khaki Design 5-Couleur. It looks different than that mini 5-couleur sample you got…is it supposed to be a sample of a palette from the Fall 2012 collection?

    The khaki shade looks lovely on you. I personally love neutrals and khaki shades. How’s the texture of the shadow?

    I love khaki shades, and you created a beautiful EOTD! The lip color is really pretty on you, too – it’s prettier than I thought it’d be from just looking at it in the pan.

      I went to Isetan Scotts. I always ask for samples when I buy something, I think those samples are worth it especially for travelling :)
      Yes fall collections are too pretty to be missed! Especially I love neutrals so much and my wallet is crying :(
