To begin with, Rose Frisson, a wintery pink shade, has a sheer,subtle, iridescent glowing finish. Even more, the blush reminds me of what your cheeks would look like when a winter breeze flushes your cheeks. And, the blush is sheer, and subtle. You can layer it to make it more intense. In this way, I wear it on the apples of my cheeks. Use the brush, or a blush brush, and do circular motions on the apples of your cheeks. On the other hand, you can also use the blush as a highlighter to add definition to your cheeks. In this way, brush the tops of your cheekbones. And, slide the brush over your temples, and bring it up to and including your brow bones. It will look gorgeous!

Now, this palette is out of my comfort zone. To start with, all the shades are either variations of black, or they have black in them. The center shade is a blackened burgundy. Starting at the top left, this is a charcoal shade with silver reflects. Next to it is a sparkling blackened silver shade. Underneath is a black matte shade. Next to that is a blackened midnight blue shade. For one thing, this palette is intense. You can do some great, intense smoky looks with this palette. Since the lightest shade is the blackened silver, I’d be using that to start my looks.
First,I’d wear the silver shade on its own. Or,wear the silver shade on the inner third of your eye,and wear the burgundy shade to line your eyes, and put the charcoal shade I love the blackened blue shade as a liner, or crease shade. Also, the black matte shade would be perfect to line your eyes. Use the charcoal shade to smoke out your eyes on the outer third of your eyes.

To begin, the shades from left going clockwise are peach shimmer, white gold shimmer, velvet brown matte, and copper gold. the star of the palette, the center shade, is a true yellow gold shimmer.
At first, I almost didn’t get this palette. One reason was, I have a lot of gold and brown shades in my collection. Boy, am I glad I didn’t listen to myself. This is a special palette. You can create so many looks with these five shades. What I like to do is , start with the center shade, and then, add the two shades on top. Or, do the same thing,start with the gold shade, and use the peach and copper shades on the left.
Or, Starting with the gold,and use the copper and brown shades on the bottom. Last, use the gold shade,and use the white gold shade, and the brown shades on your right. That is four looks right there. Or, just use one of the shades. Another thing you can do is use one shade and line your eyes with the copper shade or the brown shade. See what I mean? Also, use the peach or the white gold shades to highlight the inner corners of your eyes, and your brow bones. I’m just loving this palette!
My Final Thoughts On The Dior Golden Nights Holiday 2020 Collection…….
What a great collection. You know ,with all the makeup I review, it takes a lot for me to go nuts for a blush,or eyeshadow palette. What I loved most is this collection makes me feel like winter. I love winter. I love snow. Snowflakes make me happy. I love that the blush makes my cheeks look like a winter wind hit them. Furthermore, I love the Golden Snow Palette because it twinkles, like golden snow. Also, you can do infinite looks with this one. And, I love all the shades. The Black palette is a little harder for me. Don’t get me wrong, it is gorgeous. The shades are beautiful. Even more, I love how all the shades were blackened. It reminds me of a dark winter night!
Just have fun with these. Any one of these palettes would make a great gift!
