Dior Peacock (434) Eyeshadow Palette
Dior Peacock (434) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Peacock (434) Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a mix of warm, summery shades with a muted quality and earthy tones. It is new and limited edition this summer and contains five eyeshadows.

Peacock (434) Eyeshadow #1 is a light-medium green with warm, yellow undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation and applied very smoothly. bareMinerals Wicked is slightly more frosted and less warm-toned. Buxom Shih Tzu is a cream eyeshadow and slightly darker. Dior Garden Pastels is darker. MAC Juxt is very comparable in color.

Peacock (434) Eyeshadow #2 is a pale, yellowy beige with a soft micro-shimmer. It is semi-sheer, so it tends to work best on fair skin or as a brow bone highlighter. MAC Dew is more frosted. MAC Dazzlelight is a touch lighter (it’s more pigmented, so it’s hard to tell).

Peacock (434) Eyeshadow #3 is a pale aqua-green that flashes to greenish yellow with a golden sheen. It looks like a minty green in the pan, but it is much yellower swatched. It had good pigmentation and applied smoothly. Dior Blue Lagoon #5 is similar. Too Faced Fantasy Island #2 is slightly darker.

Peacock (434) Eyeshadow #4 is dirty blue with a hint of green/teal and a satiny sheen. It had so-so color payoff but appeared more muted swatched and applied than it did in the pan. Chanel Metamorphose #1 is brighter, lighter. bareMinerals Editor’s Pick is bluer, much darker. Tom Ford Emerald Lust #2 is more teal-hued.

Peacock (434) Eyeshadow #5 is a pale yellow-green with a satin sheen. It had good pigmentation, and while it applied smoothly and evenly, it was somewhat powdery. It can be quick to sheer out if you blend it, so blend around the edges and pat the product on initially to minimize excess powder fall out and diffusing the color too much. Chanel Metamorphose #3 is darker. MAC Juxt is greener. Inglot #364 is matte.

It’s a decent to good palette, but it didn’t wow me.  The beige eyeshadow was rather sheer, while the center shade had more color payoff but wasn’t opaque.   The darkest shade in the palette was just so-so in pigmentation as well.  The remaining two eyeshadows were better.   Unfortunately, the texture of the palette, overall, was powdery, so I did see issues with the colors fading after seven to eight hours in a noticeable capacity.  There is also some fall out during application that makes this a palette better applied prior to base makeup, just so clean up easier.

It's a decent to good palette, but it didn't wow me. Some of the eyeshadows were lacking in pigmentation, and some were powdery, which led to fading while I wore the palette.

    I tried Peacock with a blue mascara ( very bright ), it was just great ! So glad I picked up both Dior quints and this amazing blue mascara !

  2. I was considering getting this, but the swatches just seem okay. I get sucked into the colors in the pan, but when I see them swatched individually they don’t do much for me lol.

  3. I have been waiting for the reviews of these quints, this one is nice and subtle and I’ll probably pick it up because I’m a sucker for Dior quints, but the one I’m really hoping has big color payoff is Blue Lagoon!

  4. I actually really really like this one–it’s unique and the green shade is gorgeous!! :D

    Seems like wet n wilds “comfort zone” is a better buy

    I am surprised. My swatches were super powerful, not powdery in any sense. It Hold up very well on my eyes during the day. For me this is an A product, as it delivers superb color payoff, And it lasted perfectly on me from 7 am to 9 pm without fading (no primer etc!)
    Xoxo

    I think that even if this palette was completely top-notch in quality, it’d still be a huge ol’ disappointment to me. A palette with a name like “peacock” shouldn’t contain all soft shades! Who hears the name “peacock” and doesn’t think jewel tones? I know the other palette from this collection is more bold, but still. None of these shades fit the theme of the name, and that saddens me greatly. It feels like a missed opportunity.

      I agree, I also envisioned this quad as a very deep vibrant one. I was expecting a deep emerald green, royal blue, maybe a nice neutral color aswell like a beige or brownish tone, but also a gold and maybe a softer blue color. This really doesn´t look like what I expected it to be, after all this colors don´t reflect a royal peacock at all…

    • Melissa

      Same here!! That was my first thought was “what a horrible name for this palette.” A more metal/metallic based name would have been more descriptive. I would only expect jewel tones from a palette named “Peacock!”

    It’s so pretty!!! I wish the pigmentation was better.

    Hi! I have some questions the website. Sometimes when I click on the Love It or Leave It the numbers don’t react the way they should. Sometimes instead of increasing, they decrease. Also sometimes it doesn’t stay stuck. I mean I am able to keep clicking love or leave over and over and the numbers keep increasing even though it’s still only me clicking. Is it supposed to be like that? So I don’t know I you know or if it’s just me noticing this. Just wanted to give you the heads up.

  10. Not at all my type of colors, but seems “decent”
