Dior Toile de Jouy Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Toile de Jouy (429) Dior Toile de Jouy (429) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new(er) warmer neutral color story that included a mix of finishes that ranged from matte to sparkle.

Give Me Glow Matte Shadows Reviews & Swatches (Round 2, Part 5 of 5)
