Hi dear everyone! Today I come back with a new post featuring Dior 5 Couleurs Couture Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette 796 Cuir Cannage, a new addition to my makeup collection. This is my very first high end eye shadow quint(AU$100) that I purchased at David Jones and I am super duper excited about it.
The lady at the Dior counter introduced this Dior Fall 2014 collection to me and I was instantly drawn to this palette because its exquisiteness. Not to mention that all the colours in the palette are just right up my alley!
According to Dior website: “Dior reinvents the 5 Couleurs legend. True to the bold colour creation from the House of Dior, each harmony explores a unique world of colour. Based on a central shade, the signature of the palette, 4 accessory shades are used to create a multi-faceted look……”
I haven’t tried other palettes in the collection, so I am unable to comment on their performance. However, I am fairly impressed with the 796 quint from all aspects that I could expect from the eye shadows including texture, pigmentation, blendability, lasting power and colour selection.
All shades in the palette complete each other, I love that I can easily create day time or night looks.
The central shade is very easy to blend even though it’s a matte finish; it’s also very pigmented, so make sure you use a fluffy brush to blend it out so it won’t look muddy as a transition shade.
The other four shades are all satin finish, and I particularly love the bronzy colour at the bottom left. It has the most beautiful sheen and it’s one of those all-over-the-lid colours that can pair with other eye shadows or wear on its own with a winged eye liner.
The only thing I am not that thrilled about is the champagne/peachy colour at top right of the quint. It looks gorgeous in the palette, however, I feel that it does not have the pigmentation and smoothness that I had wished for. It serves well as a brow bone highlighter, but it does not stand out as a lid colour or an inner corner highlighter colour. I think I will try wet my brush next time to see if I can get enough intensity that I want from this shade.
Hope you have enjoyed this post.
Thanks for reading.
