Dior Exuberante (766) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Exuberante (766) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of five eyeshadows ranging from pale peach to shimmery, navy blue. It’s not the worst palette I’ve come across from Dior, but it had that signature miss–rich blue eyeshadow–that really brought down the palette as a whole, though the other four shades were okay but nothing impressive.

Dior Addict Fluid Shadows

Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a new, limited edition liquid eyeshadow formula available in five shades. It’s supposed to be a “lightweight, fluid eye shadow” that can be used “as a liner or as allover shadow” that is long-wearing with “enamel shine.” If you’re not a fan of liquid eyeshadow, I don’t suspect these will be converting you any time soon. The texture is thin and watery. They’re very, very difficult to work with, and they do not layer, blend, or dry down well on the lid; they tend to crack and flake off in chunks. If you attempt to layer, the next layer will lift the color underneath it, and the second layer won’t stick to anything. The only way to wear these was by applying a small dab on the center of lid and then using a fingertip to blend to the point where the color wasn’t noticeable and only some shimmer remained. I don’t recommend using the applicator, as it applies a lot of product and makes it difficult to achieve precision. These were a complete disappointment with no redeeming qualities.

Dior Cosmopolite Collection for Fall 2015

Dior Cosmopolite Collection
Dior Cosmopolite Collection

Manifold and universal, the Dior woman is above all free. Her makeup is a reflection of her wants, her needs and her many facets. For this very woman, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, has created his first collection of colors. Like a manifesto of freedom for each and every woman, the collection promises plural forms of beauty, a “Cosmopolite” beauty.

Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00)

The eyes light up with mirror-shine color, highlighted by the innovative Dior Addict Fluid Shadow texture and its magnetic shimmer. Created by Peter Philips, the new-generation eyeshadow gives eyelids the unprecedented, lacquer-like shine of a continuous film of light. A major innovation from Dior research, this lightweight fluid with flawless hold revolutionizes makeup application: applied in a solid block of color over the entire eyelid or along the upper lashes like an eyeliner, Dior Addict Fluid Shadow comes in six precious, metallic shades that light up the eyes with a quick stroke of the brush.

  • Magnetic
  • Eclipse
  • Cosmic
  • Phenix
  • Univers
  • Nova
  • Aurora

Sculpt the face with bold strokes or caress the cheeks with a light veil – the new Dior blush can do it all, depending on your desire. Ultra-easy, intuitive application with the fingertips and three shades to choose from – coral, rosewood or fresh pink – for a face with an incomparable healthy glow.

5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Couture Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00) (Limited Edition)

Under the expert hands of Peter Philips, the iconic 5 Couleurs palette gets a new look for fall as the four letters of DIOR dance across its harmony of brand new colors. The two new limited-edition creations flatter all eyes, whether dark or light, and all types of beauty. Because the Dior woman has many facets – couture or natural, sophisticated or discreet – she can choose between a harmony of brown, beige and gold contrasted with denim blue; or an accord of silver, mauve and burgundy set against a moss green. Whether she opts for a bold or more delicate look with the 5 Couleurs shadows, her eyes are always defined with the Sourcils Poudre pencil. A Dior makeup essential since 1991, it is now decked out in a new cloak of midnight blue. In addition to the four existing shades, two new ash shades are now available for blonde or light brown tones. Inspired by the professional tools of Dior makeup artists, the pencil combines the definition of a wax and the finish of a powder. Its brush tip makes it the accessory no woman can do without for a flawless, harmonious brow line.

Dior Ambre Nuit (746) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Ambre Nuit (746) Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of warm-toned neutrals that ranges from frosted peach to deepened bronzy brown. The colors are dupable, and you can certainly find better-performing neutral palettes on the market given how many are available, but at least this did better than most of Dior’s palettes have in the last couple of years. The trouble showed up primarily during application, as the drier texture proved more difficult to work with for blending and getting color to adhere evenly and smoothly to bare skin. This one should work well enough over a primer if you typically wear one.

Dior Contraste Horizon (556) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Contraste Horizon (556) Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a brighter, more colorful set of shades for summer. You know me, despite having a fairly consistent negative experience with Dior’s palettes these days, that bluish-teal color drew me in, and shortly after receiving my order, I deeply regretted purchasing. The texture of the eyeshadows is drier overall, and they just performed poorly as far as wear and application went without some sort of helper (base or primer).
