Diorshow All-In-Brow 3D Palette 'Blonde' - Review, Swatches, Before & After

Dior has some brand new goodies to add to their Diorshow Collection for 2016.


Today we are talking brows!

The Diorshow All-In-Brow 3D Palette comes in 2 stay-in-line shades, 'Blonde' and 'Brown'.  Like many Dior palettes, it comes in a velvety soft pouch to protect it from dust, scratches, and let's be honest, it keeps it from getting hurt when my cat decides that he wants to adopt it as his new toy (I have lost soooo much makeup this way).


It contains a mirror, a small spoolie, two angled brushes, as well as a dark powder, a light powder, and a setting wax.


It is recommended that the dark powder be used on the outer third of your brow (the tail end), the lighter powder be used on the inner corner (closest to the bridge of your nose), and a mix of the two powders in the centre of your eyebrow.  Then place the wax all over the brow to keep it in place.  I applied the powders in the suggested fashion, then I used the spoolie to brush out any loose powder, and applied the wax all over my eyebrow with my finger.

While the blonde powders do look quite similar when swatched on my arm, you can see the differences when applied to the brow.  The darker powder is more warm toned and a bit more bold, and the lighter powder is more cool toned.

Let me be the first to say that I'm very hard to please when it comes to brow products.  Because my natural hair is very dark, but I dye my hair blonde, I need my brow products to lighten up my brows just a bit, so it isn't THAT obvious that I'm not a natural blonde (Don't worry - 3 days after I get my hair done, the roots will spill that secret).  I am very picky - I can't stand brow products that are super red toned, because it looks way too orange, especially in the sparse areas, where I fill in my eyebrows (the inner corner, closest to the bridge of my nose).  It's cool toned or go home.

So guess how pleasantly surprised I was when I saw the slightest hint of red, but it was still cool-toned enough to make me happy?  The powders are definitely keepers, and the wax was thin and not at all goopy.  Not only did the product itself work for me, but I loooved the applicator.  Usually, I will toss out the applicators that come with the product and just use my own brushes, but the angled brushes that came with this palette were firm, and precise enough to carve out the shape that I wanted.  It makes this palette super travel-friendly.

Needless to say, I am happy with the Diorshow All-In-Brow 3D Palette.  It may just have to join the Too Faced Brow Envy Kit in my 'Eyebrow Hall of Fame'.

You can find Diorshow All-In-Brow 3D Palette for $64.00 at Dior counters, thebay.com, holtrenfrew.com, sephora.ca, and shoppersdrugmart.com (all where applicable).
