Pink Vibration (167)

Dior Pink Vibration (167) High Fidelity Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition spring color story featuring yellow, orange, and three takes on purple from lavender to plum. They were all… varying degrees of disappointment, and they were some of the worst eyeshadows I’ve tried in the last few months.

I feel like a lot of issues that I encounter are powderiness, so some fallout or having to build up coverage, but these just looked poor on my skin–dry, dusty–and they were more prone to fading, sheering out, and were frustrating to work with. I tried it over primer, just to see if it proved to be the miracle needed, but I still found it very underwhelming over an eyeshadow primer (I used Smashbox 24HR).

Pink Vibration #1

Pink Vibration #1 is a light-medium orange with a hint of red in its undertone paired with fine, gold micro-shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage with a drier, dustier texture that was resulted in sheerer coverage and a tendency to look drier applied over bare skin. It wore well for six hours before fading noticeably.

Pink Vibration #2

Pink Vibration #2 is a brighter, lemony yellow with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It seemed more satiny initially, but the drier, more powdery qualify of the texture made it look somewhat chalky, clumpy, and uneven when applied to bare skin. I wish I could tell you it was vastly improved over primer, but it was not–just terrible to mediocre. The coverage was semi-opaque but quickly sheered out to more semi-sheer to medium coverage. It lasted for six and a half hours before fading visibly.

Pink Vibration #3

Pink Vibration #3 is a light lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. The shimmer was very fine, but the powder seemed drier and dustier, so while it seemed finely-milled and soft to the touch, it looked more frosted applied to bare skin. I felt like it had a tendency to emphasize my skin texture. It had nearly opaque coverage that too quickly sheered out to more medium to semi-opaque coverage. It wore decently for six hours before fading noticeably.

Pink Vibration #4

Pink Vibration #4 is a brighter, orchid purple with warm, pink undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which I was quite surprised to see given the performance of the rest of the palette, but it still had a considerably drier, more powdery texture. It did not blend out as evenly as I anticipated, and I had issues with the product clinging more heavily (and darkening) to certain areas but refusing to diffuse from there. The color stayed on well for seven hours before fading a bit.

Pink Vibration #5

Pink Vibration #5 is a muted, medium-dark purple with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had medium coverage that did not build up well, and it had a tendency to apply unevenly and lift up product underneath and around it. This shade was an absolute struggle to use with or without primer; there was no improving it short of applying it with a dampened brush over a tacky, opaque white base (basically the most help any one eyeshadow could ever be given). There were signs of fading after six hours of wear.

Oh, this is sad. My favorite shade gets an F. I’ve been loving my Dior palettes lately, but it looks like they let this one loose past quality control. Boo.

If it’s #5 you’re referring to, I looked at the dupes and most of them didn’t get very high marks either. I’m wondering if that’s just a difficult colour to get right.

Womp, womp, womp. What a wimpy little palette. I know Mel Thompson didn’t care for this one, either. So sad too because this color combo would be great together in a palette of far superior quality!

Dior…..why?! I cannot for the life of me figure out why such I high end brand consistently puts out such horrible quality eyeshadow when companies like colourpop for a fraction of the price can consistently kill it. Why?.

Same thought exactly, Laura! Why? I truly would love an explanation from someone, anyone who understands how these things work. Do they actually skip product testing entirely, if they think they can skate on their name, and still make the profit they have in mind? It’s hard to imagine it works out for them in longer term even if they save some money upfront. But then, what do I know about cosmetic companies bottom line. I am also completely befuddled that TF can produce so many mediocre products (or even good ones) and charge so much more than most of the competition, who often are offering a better version.

I actually it was going to be one of those dismal ones when I saw the neonesque shades – Dior always does them really badly, and this is no exception.
What happened to the Celebrate in Gold formula?
It just shows that even HE branded eyeshadows can be like the poorest performing DS one. This would rival Revlons….

My heart is not broken over this being such a dud because to me, these colours are just ugly – it’s not to my personal taste at all and reminds me of the Pucci clothing which I also always found ugly and garish. But it’s a shame the quality is so poor – it’s like Dior, after finally getting their eyeshadow formula better, has gone back to the questionable and EXPENSIVE stuff they used to fob off on us.

And here I thought the most eyebrow-raising thing about this palette was going to be that it’s called “Pink Vibration” and features zero pink. Well…

Why release the darn thing? Someone lets it slide through . . . . and the entire beauty brand has to take a hit as a result? They don’t ever seem to learn. Why is that? Because they (all the companies who do this) can afford to? Too pressured to release a ‘spring’ launch before it can be done correctly? I really don’t get it. Why even bother?

What a bummer! Great color story for me for spring and I would have waited for a sale. Too bad. 🙁
