So you may have noticed by now that I have developed a bit of a “thing” for the Dior Smoky Trios. It began with Smoky Pink and Smoky Brown and my love has now expanded to Smoky Violet and now, my new absolute most favourite Dior Smoky Ready-to-Wear Smoky Eyes Palette, Smoky Khaki.
This Smoky Khaki palette it housed in the same gorgeous, and super cool, slide out/flip up packaging. There is a difference with this palette. The largest shade at the bottom of the palette that is designated as the base shade in the trios is much different with Smoky Khaki. Rather than being a softer, sheerer base shade that can be worn on the brow bone like in the other Smoky Trios I have tried, the base shade in Smoky Khaki is a rich, pigmented, buttery piece of heaven that is far too much to wear on one’s brow bone but is perfection on the lid. The way I wear this trio is completely different than the others I own. The other palettes I own in this series I typically wear with the top left in the crease, top right on the lid, and bottom on the brow bone and inner corner. With Smoky Khaki I wear the top left in the crease, the top right on the outer v into the crease and to line the upper lash line, and the bottom shade on the lid. It has become one of my go to eye looks that I have been reaching for multiple times in a week. That says a lot given the amount of eyeshadows I own!
If you love these kind of khaki and gold tones I highly suggest checking this palette out. I have been incredibly impressed with the quality and performance of the Dior Smoky Trios. Especially my favourites Smoky Khaki and Smoky Pink.
Stay tuned for my Face of the Day featuring Smoky Khaki!
