I really love bronze eyeshadow palettes. If you throw in a pretty orange and gold, consider it a done deal! I have two new favorites this spring, so I thought I could show them together for maximum pretty.
Monarch offers twelve shades, while Dior has five.
The color schemes are similar, but I didn't find any shades that were exactly the same between the palettes.
Kat Von D Monarch offers a burnt orange, beautiful gold, along with a few neutral taupe shades. I love the mix of mattes and shimmers. The top right shade is the only true dud- a matte base with silver sparkles that didn't adhere to the eyelid well. I can put together so many different color combinations- from silver, to warm bronze, to bright orange and gold! I love the possibilities.
I am loving both palettes, and I think they are different enough to coexist in my spring palette rotation. I really hope Dior continues releasing quints with this more pigmented formulation. Kat Von D has also released some gorgeous palettes lately- I always enjoy the artwork and thought involved in the color scheme.
