Dior Minaudière in Grey Golds 001 (Saks)

October 28, 2010
I couldn’t resist. Pretty packaging, sparkly black gold + shimmery cool taupe and I was sold on the Minaudière in Grey Golds 001 from Saks. You saw my feature of the Dior Minaudière in Pink Golds 002 last week. Here are photos of the Grey Golds version – my favorite of the two options and as far as I know, exclusive to Saks in the U.S.

On the nails, Chanel Cosmic Violine, top from Banana Republic

The Grey Golds version has a black with gold sparkles, cool shimmery taupe, and a lovely warm white-gold sparkle. The eyeshadows apply true to what you see in the pan. They are softer in texture than the quints making them easier to blend. All shades are very shimmery.

The lip colors are a bit more deceiving. In the compact you see a dark vampy plum and a white-gold sparkle. When you swatch them, the plum actually applies more red and the white gold applies even more sparkly than what you see in the compact.

Here are the shadows of the 2 clutch palettes from Dior:

    I love how it separates the powder products from the gloss! normally i don't like mixed palettes because i feel like powder always gets in the cream or gloss parts.

  • GAH! Of COURSE the palette I wanted to see is exclusive to a store I don't have access to in person!

    *cue the sad trombone … wah wah waaaaahh*

    My Dior SAs didn't even know this stuff existed — they only had the red palettes, and just yesterday, they called me to tell me that they'd received a shipment of the goodies that I'd clued them in to. Go figure, right?

    Sadly, Saks isn't one of those stores LOL … and I wanna swatch this on meeeee :-/

    (I'm done complaining, Sabrina LOL. I just had to vent.)

  • Oy! I like the shadows from the pink golds and the lip glosses from the grey–which to choose? I've been trying to pass on this but I think I will be sorry if I don't get one of them. Such a dilemma!

  • oh dear… they both just look too beautiful to be true… but I know that I don't really "need" them 😉 Guess I will end up buying at least one of them anyway. Thanks for the great pictures!

  • Best packaging yet!!!
