One of the prettiest and classiest K-Beauty brand has recently released several new products, under one line, and I have first dibs here in Singapore – explaining the YASSSSS in my opening post.
I am psyched! And I did an unboxing video which you can view after the jump, but before that, let me just briefly show you guys what this (these) new product(s) is.
Introducing the… Dear Dahlia Paradise Dual Palette
Here are the product description and marketing brief for these dual palettes:
Now for the exciting part, the actual unboxing video!
Below is the product info for each of the Paradise Dual Palettes:
The Paradise Dual Palette is divided into 3 categories, namely Multi (Multi-Balm Duo), Mix (Eye Shadow Duo), and Match (Multi-Balm & Eye Shadow Trio).
MULTI // MULTI-BALM DUO
First, we have the Multi-Balm Duo, falling into the Multi category. This is a 2-pan product, consisting of two creamy lip-and-cheek colors in Peach Champagne.
MIX // EYE SHADOW TRIO
Next, we have 2 sets of Eye Shadow Trio, falling into the Mix category. This is a 2-pan product, consisting of eyeshadows with 3 different finish.
For Caramel Slice, there is a subdued glittery gold (first pan), and shimmery brown + beige (second pan).
For Coco Delight, there is a subdued glittery bronzy-brown (first pan), and soft-matte beige + smokey-matte brown (second pan).
MATCH // MULTI-BALM & EYE SHADOW TRIO
Lastly, we have 2 sets of Multi-Balm & Eye Shadow Trio, falling into the Match category. This is a 2-pan product, consisting of one creamy lip & eye color, and a duo eyeshadow.
For Lady Oxford, there is a very subdued, shimmery sand beige lip & cheek color (first pan), and soft-matte beige + smokey-matte brown (second pan).
For Sunset Romance, there is a creamy warm brown rose lip & cheek color (first pan), and shimmery bronze-brown + brown-beige (second pan).
Just to complete the set, below are more campaign shots:
And finally, some of the pictures I have taken, including color swatches.
finally, the color swatches, but before you scroll further, let me apologize in advance if the colors captured are not as true as the ones presented in the promotional campaign images. With that out of the way, enjoy the as-close-as-possible swatches!
[swatch video for Lady Oxford might have been corrupted, I will re-video and post it at a later time]

Since their inception, Dear Dahlia has always operated solely online. However, with their latest launch of the Paradise Dual Palette, they held a show-and-tell event and invited everyone (ok, only those who are in Korea at the moment) to browse their products and purchase them directly.
One of the guests they invited was Vogue Korea and they succintly captured the event/showroom beautifully. I have uploaded the video posted by Vogue Korea for you guys to see.

On a parting note, I just have to reiterate that Dear Dahlia has been planning their products, concept including design, style, type, material etc etc, for a very long time. In the cosmetic industry, having similarity in design is hard to avoid. There could be similarity from a consumer’s point of view, but from a brand’s perspective, their idea, their vision, their execution are what makes it unique and apart.
Similarity is excusable. Copy + Paste is downright wrong.
