Dior Smoky Violet Trio

Dior 3 Couleurs Smoky Palette in 961 Smoky Violet from Purple Revolution ~ Swatches, Photos, Review

I’ve expressed my love for the Dior Smoky Trios before with my reviews of Smoky Pink and Smoky Brown. The colour pairings and formula in these trios are gorgeous so when I saw the beautiful Purple Revolution offering I was immediately smitten.
Smoky Violet did not disappoint. It offers the same smooth, pigmented formulas as the other Dior 3 Couleurs Smoky Ready-to-Wear Smoky Eyes Palettes I have tried and the finish of the eyeshadows are  truly lovely. The upper left purple has a gorgeous satin finish and buttery texture perfect for the crease. The more intense violet on the right has the most stunning shimmer and dimension while still remaining classy. The bottom base shade is a little more softly pigmented just as it should be for it’s purpose as a base. It offers the perfect glow for the brow bone and inner corner of the eye.
I wanted to get this review up before this sold out so I don’t have look photos to share with you just yet. I will try to get a Face of the Day post up shortly using this palette because the results are so pretty. I did experience a small amount of creasing and fading throughout the day but it was only visible on close scrutiny.
This is a Bay and Nordstrom exclusive. It is still available on the Nordstrom website and was available online at the Bay until recently. Hopefully it is still floating around some counters too because if you love purple you need to take part in Dior’s Purple Revolution with Smoky Violet.

    I am in LOVE with that middle shade–it’s so, so pretty! Of course the brighter, more shimmery violet shade is stunning as well!

    Dior is certainly doing a great job of tempting us lately with these beautiful colours and collections.

    Yes they have had online shopping for quite a while now at The Bay. I have actually had much more luck with the Dior Trios than Quints!
