Blazing Gold is my favourite palette of the two with every colour swatching beautifully. The center highlighter shade was slightly patchy, but for the amount of highlight I actually do, I wasn’t too fussed.

Final verdict: Though I wish I had found a better way to use that shimmery rusty red, I was still very pleased with how this palette performed in terms of pigmentation and application. Some of Dior’s lighter, more pastel shades have had a bit of fallout for me in the past, so I am impressed with how the grey-pink performed. The two darker shades were so easy to work with and I did not have any fallout on my skin after doing my eye makeup. I have never seen a palette with a red like this one in it so for something limited edition, I think Dior did a great job of making it stand out!
