Christian Dior 2 Ombres: Dawn/Dusk

 This is a lovely cool-toned duo I got some time in the mid-to-late 1980's or mid-1990's. It's more likely that I got it in the 1980's, however, because I was out of the country most of the 1990's. I would guess this was a late-80's purchase, since I stopped wearing much makeup after about 1989 and didn't really wear it again on a daily basis until the 2000's. Also, the colors are typical of what I was purchasing in that time period.

The case is a bit scratched but in generally good shape, and the powder shadows are hardly used. The latticework embossing on the shadows is still visible around the edges!

The shadows are smooth and silky, with good color payoff. There was a small amount of fallout, but not to the point that it would be hard to work with.

Swatches were done with a q-tip on unprimered skin.
