Happy Sunday friends! Today I have a new eye shadow palette from Dior to share with you. Dior's Designer 5-Colour Palette in Nude Pink* ($63 CAD) is one of the five new palettes that I have to share with you over the next little while. I've tried out a few of Dior's palettes, and I've always been really impressed, so I was really excited to try out these new shades! The Dior Designer 5-Colour Palettes contain 4 powder shadows and a gel liner, so you can create a complete eye look!
The shadows in this palette are very sheer, and not very buildable. I'm all for a neutral eye look, but I still do want my shadows to be pigmented. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to build up these shadows at all, and the liner was streaky at best. The liner also smudges quite easily - girls with oily lids beware! My eyes were left looking like I barely touched them, not like I just used a $63 Dior palette. I wasn't able to build up any sort of definition in the crease, and all of the shadows blended together too easily. The powder shadows do have a creamy and silky formula to them, so if you're into sheer shadows then you might really like this palette.
If you prefer sheer shadows, then you might like this palette from Dior. However, I think most people are looking for more of a punch, even from neutral shadows. If that's the case, then I think you'll be disappointed in this palette. The shadows look so pretty in the pan, but unfortunately the pigmentation just isn't there! It comes down to personal preference, but this palette just isn't for me.
Do you prefer sheer or more pigmented shadows?
