Dior 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palette: A quick review

dior 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palette

What it is: A collection of five-colour eyeshadow palettes from Dior. 

Beauty bonus: The formulas go on super smooth!

Beauty bummer: None. 

Overall: Part of the ongoing Dior beauty offering, the 5 Couleurs palettes can often be found in limited-edition iterations tied to current runway collection.

Big fans of eyeshadow palettes — I mean, who doesn't love a one-and-done look? — we tried two of the colour collections, 189 Blue and 519 Nude. 

Admittedly, not big fans of blue eyeshadows, we found the hues on offer in the blue palette to be surprisingly delightful. But, it was the Nude palette that stole our hearts. 

The colours range from satin to shimmer, brushing on easily and providing build-able colour. We brushed on the soft champagne-gold shade for a gilded daytime look, then added some smokiness to the crease and some liner-like shadow along the lash line for a more dramatic date-night look.

Safe to say, this palette is a new summertime go-to. 

Would recommend? Yes.

Price: $75
