Lazy Girl Approved highlights long-lasting, goof-proof, fuss-free products that can fit into the most minimalist of regimens. If you consider yourself a low-maintenance beauty lover, these product reviews are for you!
If you're the same breed of Lazy Girl I am, you probably don't wear eyeshadow daily because it's too much work. Most mornings, I'd rather hit the snooze alarm one more time than spend those 9 precious minutes searching for all the tools and products I need (primer, brushes, shadows) and tirelessly blending. If I need to primp for an evening out and look fancy in a hurry—well, that's what the Emergency Bold Lipstick is for. Luckily for me and Lazy Girls everywhere, a palette like the Dior Eye Reviver Backstage Pros Illuminating Neutrals Eye Palette ($63) makes the whole eyeshadow
ordeal process a little less daunting.
What it is: A palette of 4 neutral, universally flattering shades that promises to enhance and illuminate eyes. There's a powder-based primer on the far left and a dark brown gel liner on the far right.
Packaging-wise: Ultra luxe Dior style all the way. The palette is sleek, silver, and shiny, and like all of Dior's compacts comes in its own velvet pouch. A double-ended swab/angled brush applicator and a fine liner brush are included.
Formula-wise: The pigments are super-fine and easy to blend with build-able coverage. The primer and eyeshadows provide all-day wear without creasing, although the gel liner fades slightly. The biggest plus about this palette is that its colours really do what they claim. My eyes look noticeably brighter and larger when I use it.
Lazy girls will like it because: The Dior Eye Reviver palette corrals together all the essentials in one tidy, travel-friendly compact. It takes the hassle and guesswork out of crafting the perfect eye look and it really will give you the perfect eye look every time, whether you're adding subtle polish for day or intensifying your eyes with more dark shadow and liner for evening. Plus, the colours go with every lip colour imaginable. If you rarely wear eyeshadow and you want to invest in one versatile product that you're guaranteed to use every single time you do, the Dior Eye Reviver palette is it.
