Review: Christian Dior Summer Star Asia Exclusive Quint

Released with Dior's Summer 2008 Goldrush collection, this and Goldfever are the two LE quads released with it.
Price: About 58USD. This is 6 dollars over the asking price in the US, but 58 divided by 5 which is about 11.60$ for each shadow, which I reckon is pretty good. I also think that while you probably won't use all five shades for one look, it's great to mix n match and get lots of different EOTDs from it.

Where to get it: This is probably long gone in countries like Japan and Taiwan where they are pretty hot (this confused me at first, then I realized that I did see rather a lot of people at the Dior counters). However, there may still be stock. Or, you can test your luck on Ebay.

Texture: Soo soft and silky! This is my first Dior Quint and now I'm lemming the Stylish Moves one! I am amazed at the quality. Nom.

Pigmentation: Superb! While it isn't as great as my Holy Grail Shu shadows, it's pretty darn close. I really like it for a natural look with oomph.

Lasting ability: This lasts all day on me on top of Urban Decay Primer Potion (another Holy grail!). I always use UDPP so cannot comment on how it wears without it.

Packaging: So classy! Comes it a glossy navy box with silver lettering; in it's own velvet pouch! How luxe is that?

Seen it? Heard about it? Thought it was meh? Wished it wasn't Asia Exclusive? Have no fear! The Europe and North American version of this is the Golds quint. As Jojoba of Makeupalley and mymakeupreviews.blogspot.com reported, the only shade that is different is the pink in the Summer Star quad and the copper in the Golds. Boo on Dior for only changing one shade! That said, I think I would have liked Golds better because of that copper shade.
