If you're a fan of green gradient looks, the Dior 5 Couleur Designer 308 Khaki Design* ($63CDN) might be up your alley. Available starting in June, here are swatches and a look.  Here is my general opinions of these palettes.

To recap:
This palettes contain 5 colors, a base, two satin shadows, a shimmery illuminator and a gel liner. they are supposed to be sheer and meant to be layered. Each palette is built around a harmony of one shade in various semi-tones for a color gradient look.

The gel liner worked out better than that of the blue palette. Slightly wetting the included liner brush seemed to help the liner glide on and with better opacity. Its a nice deep forest green and the overall look when complete has a very mossy feel. The illuminator shade is sheer and shimmery, I would almost say glittery. Again the shadows aren't the most buttery in the pan but they do blend. I found layering was necessary especially for the lighter shades.

This palette leans generally more cool. I favor warm shades so I didn't quite enjoy the color combination but I did like that the illuminator shade was a yellow instead of, potentially, a lime green.
