I love the packaging of Dior's Detective Chic series! I have two now, but am looking forward to when they release more :)

These are last year's releases, I think:

Edit: The white palette is from Fall 2006, while the black was Fall 2007 and is still available at


My most recent acquisition is the white one - (I got this off Ebay before Easter weekend so nope I'm still doing good on my makeup ban, in fact I'm at 30 days now :P)

According to the box, its a highlighting palette for face and eyes.



I hope they'll put out an eyeshadow one with more exciting shades later this year. The eyeshadow one that I have is composed of neutrals and greys, and half the colours are matte. Great for work, but kinda boring so I hardly use it. Got this one back in November.

Can't wait 'til you review the highlighting palette. It looks very pretty. The brown one is nice too. Reminds me of camouflage uniforms or "camos". Great for autumn months.

her.peachieness: i could review it if you do want to know more?

ilurvemakeup: haha i guess they do look like wallets! the white one was $37 including shipping. the black one, because I got it from Sephora, AND this is canada, they had it priced for >$62 + taxes....thinking about it I was crazy to pay that amount. I think the US retail price is better, about $50?

tracy: neutral isn't so bad - at least no one will tell you that you have on too much :) i'm in between - i don't like neutral but don't like too bright colours on myself either.

nicnic: lol actually it helps that I know i can buy more makeup after the 2 months is up. I think yours was about giving it up for much longer, so that would be harder for me to stick to as well.

jiejie: thanks! i'm starting to crack a bit though...i really REALLY want to buy something right now :S

bliss, incandescent, gezebel: i actually love the packaging more than the colours :P i hope they come out with even better ones this year :)

Ooo lucky! I've never scored the Dior Chic Shimmer Powder Palette!

Wanted it forevers though :(

I kinda miss the old palette style. Solid silver. The new couture inspired palettes aren't as gorgeous!

theChas said...

mmmm neutral greens and browns...*drool*
