Khaki Design, the second of Dior's Couture Colour Eyeshadow Palettes (#308, $59) introduced with the Golden Jungle Collection for Fall 2012, is gorgeous. I think it's a must-have for khaki lovers.
An ultra-professional and totally new version of the 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette [Fards à Paupières in French]. Five different textures have been brought together in a single case to create eye shadow styles through layering. The 5 Couleurs Palette in Khaki Design puts a wild twist on sophistication.
Golden Savannah Palette, which I featured last week, this one has no duds (duds defined as sparkly, poorly pigmented shades). I love all the shades in Khaki Design.
I loved the Golden Savannah neutrals, but felt I'd purchased a quad with five shades. With Khaki Design, I got five shades in a 5 Couleurs palette, making it worth every penny of the $59 I paid for it.
Khaki Design comes with application instructions, but I rarely pay any attention to the paint-by-numbers suggestions. Do you? It also comes in a little velveteen pouch. I wonder how many little pouches are floating around in my house. I wish Charlie or Savannah found them entertaining; then they would have a use.
The Dior Fall 2012 Colors have arrived at Dior counters, and they are selling at a brisk pace. I'm never sure whether that's an indicator that the store purchased an inadequate supply or whether the item is fabulous. If you'd like to try or purchase Khaki Design, I'd suggest you do it soon.
