Taking a Dip in Dior Croisette Edition – Swimming Pool (224)

A night swim in the pool during the summer?

Yes please!

Dior Croisette Edition - Swimming Pool 224

I am proud to say that…I have a swimming pool!

Except that I can’t really swim in it.

For summer 2012, Dior released 2 limited edition Croisette edition, one cool & pastel tone which is Swimming Pool, and another is Aurora the warm colors.

Dior Croisette Edition - Swimming Pool 224 Swatch

It might look scary from the pan, but when you swatch the colors, they are rather sheer and the shimmery colors are actually quite similar when swatched.

The shimmers are really subtle and finely milled.

I did a quick work of blending the shimmer colors and finally dab on the blue. I find that the shadows work the best with fingers actually.

And if you need a teal eyeliner, just dab the blue over the black eye liner before it’s thoroughly dry and the blue will sort of blend into the black.

I hesitated when I saw the colors in the pan, but it’s actually quite user-friendly. It definitely does not take an expert to apply the colors.

However, the colors can be quite sheer and you will need more to build an intense color.

As pretty as it looks from the pan, I would actually love it more if the colors were more pigmented. Please let me know if you feel otherwise.

It’s pretty palette, but the cool pastel tones might not suit everyone.

Price: RM210

Availability: All Dior counters (Limited Edition)

I’ve heard of the pigment problem in Swimming Pool. It would be a disappointment for those who are only just dipping their toes into Dior and may put them off the brand. Pity really. The other palettes are much much better :) Try layering the colours over black pencil liner and see what happens?

I just can’t imagine Dior would have bright colors as seen on pan but it looked quite wearable on your lids! :)

I think you’re only one who manage to wear this! I totally passed this when I saw how Temptalia gave Aurora an A and put this down to F.

Looks beautiful in the pan…what a gorgeous looking palette!! I actually like slightly less pigmented shadows when it comes to bright colours…lol… It’s easier to work with and can see why some women who prefer subtle looks would gravitate to this…

It’s a shame that this pretty palette is a bit of a let down as the shades are not pigmented. Texture feels a bit powdery too. But the colours do look nice on you and I think you wear pastels very well.
