this entry features the Dior 3 Couleurs Glow 651 Nude Glow, an eyeshadow trio which will be released with Dior's Fall 2012 makeup collection - for information on the collection, please click on this entry here here here.
If you aren't aware, the 3 Couleurs were only released a couple of years back, if I am not wrong, and these have a very nifty way of opening up the palette. You slide open the cover, and a mirror slides up, and you see the three colours - 2 main colors, and a liner shade. This is quite handy, and the picture below shows the size difference between the trio and the quint.
651 Nude Glow is a very pale peachy nude palette, with a matte black liner shade.
Here is the product description and how to apply it -- and I followed the steps in my LOTD:
Within the exclusive 3 couleurs glow sliding case lies the secret to naturally luminous, dramatic and couture eyes. In 3 easy steps, our 3 new-generation fusion formula enhance your eyes with nude or pastel shades, a highlighter and a liner to define them.
- a satiny nude or pastel EYESHADOW with an ultra-fine texture melts into the skin. Apply to eyelid and blend.
- a HIGHLIGHTER shade with a wet-look finish illuminates the eyes. Dab on the center of the eyelid and the inner and outer corners of the eye.
- A powder LINER is applied to the upper lash line to define the eyes and create the ultimate fashion touch.
swatches without any primer
and I also swatched the liner wet and dry
the liner looks darker then it is applied wet
The lid color is quite soft, and pigment.
The highlighter shade is a very fine and shimmery shade, that sparkles without having much of a base colour.
This is be used as a layering shade to add some texture/ sparkle as I have done in my LOTD.

eyelook close up - the lid shade is very natural, and just added a little color to my lids without being too loud, or like I am wearing eyeshadow...like the name states, it's a NUDE GLOW..
it was very hot, and I was erm...sweating..so I prolly look a little /glowier than usual...but quite nice IMO..nonetheless.
