Blue Beat (327)

Dior Blue Beat (327) High Fidelity Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition spring color story that features a very pale, warm pink, brighter pink, and three cooler-toned shades from light blue to blue-teal.

Unfortunately, only the fifth shade in the palette was decent, but decent in the scheme of things is pretty weak these days based on the glut of great eyeshadow that exists at all price points. Dior themselves have done better (see holiday ’19 quints), and the formula has more of the traditional, powder eyeshadow feel than they’ve used in the last few launches, which is a more baked-gelee kind of formula.

These are just dry, dusty, and prone to emphasizing skin texture and made my eyelids look textured. They were prone to sheering out, fading faster than usual, and were all-around a really disappointing journey to take.

Blue Beat #1

Blue Beat #1 is a light-medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and a soft, frosted finish. The texture was soft but drier, dustier, and more prone to sheering out. It looked more satiny when applied as the shimmer seemed to disappear. It had semi-opaque coverage that clung to my skin texture and emphasized it. The color started to show signs of fading after six and a half hours.

Blue Beat #2

Blue Beat #2 is a very light, peachy-pink with strong, warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The consistency was soft, drier, and thin, which I found had a tendency to sheer out the decent (mostly opaque) coverage along with yielding some fallout. I had better luck applying it with a fingertip, but it looked a lot less shimmery once applied to my skin. It lasted well for six hours before fading visibly.

Blue Beat #3

Blue Beat #3 is a pale, silvery blue with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage with a soft, slightly drier, dustier consistency that had some fallout during application. The powder didn’t apply as evenly to bare skin as I expected, and it made my brow bone area looked drier than I’ve ever seen it; I felt like the shimmer, despite seeming quite fine, clung to my skin. The eyeshadow stayed on decently for five and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Blue Beat #4

Blue Beat #4 is a minty, aqua green with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had decent coverage in a single pass, but it didn’t build up (even over primer), and the drier, dustier texture made it difficult to get the color to go on evenly or to blend easily. The powder just emphasized my skin’s texture and really clung to it rather than diffusing and spreading well. There was noticeable fading after five and a half hours of wear.

Blue Beat #5

Blue Beat #5 is a medium-dark, bluish-teal with faint, micro-shimmer over a more matte finish. It had opaque color coverage with a moderately powdery texture that had some fallout, but it didn’t sheer out as much as other shades in the palette. The eyeshadow went on fairly evenly and blended out without too much effort. It lasted well for seven hours before fading noticeably.

I’ve been loving the “Celebrate in Gold” 5-pan.
Coincidentally, I wore it yesterday for the first time in a few weeks and it actually looked BETTER at the end of the day, which is strange. The colours seemed to become both more intense and more “blended”. I’m going to wear it again today, it was so nice!

Tragic that this one falls so sub par in comparison to Dior’s holiday quints and their permanent ones, too! This could’ve been a beautiful spring pastel palette, but no, they took a huge step backwards. I’m sad.

Again, no great loss for me because, except for #2, I don’t like any of these colours. But Dior is being really foolish letting such questionable quality products onto the market. That new High Fidelity formulation they came out with a few years ago was such good quality; I don’t understand why they didn’t stick with that shadow formula!

So, what to say about this launch! Both quints did poorly. Maybe these were in the pipeline before the holiday release that was much better and they had to go forward with the launch in the old formula? I am trying to give them an out. I like the colour story for both quints so I am disappointed in both of these and will pass. That is sad as I usually pick up at least one quint from each release. These are easy passes.

Glad I didn’t buy this palette because it looks pretty .But when I swatched this palette in store and the only decent color was the deep blue. I agree Dior should have done a better job.

I received an eyeshadow palette from Dior, as a Christmas present from my mother when I was 18 years old or so. I tried to use it a few times (and I was quite excited about it). I always felt like I was smothering my eyes with chalk. It was my first ever eyeshadow palette and it turned me off eyeshadow for the next 10 years because I thought eyeshadow didn’t look good on me/it was too complicated for a makeup newbie like me to use….

Disappointing journey 🤣….damn it Dior! What the heck is going on over in their beauty department!?! I mean seriously with such a saturated cosmetics market how, how, how does this get to counters?!

I like the colors in these quints and the poor performance doesn’t scare me off because I have a weird knack for doing well with makeup that does horribly on other people, but I might wait until they go on sale.
