Riviera (779)

Dior Riviera (779) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition neutral palette with four more shimmery shades and one more matte shade. All five shades were pigmented with slightly denser, firmer textures, almost like a gel-powder but didn’t seem to have the full effect of that formula that I could see.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to have a "creamy and comfortable texture" that is long-wearing and has "intense color" (or "high-pigment"). There are five finishes that can be found within various palettes: matte, satin, shimmer, metallic, highlighter, and glitter, though there aren't specific descriptions by finish, unfortunately.

There were a few shades that seemed more sparkly and were sheerer, more like layering shades, while the other finishes tended to be pigmented. In general, the texture was moderately dense with the matte shades being slightly thinner and a smidgen powdery in the pan compared to the satin, shimmer, and metallic shades.

Aside from those more sparkly shades, the formula was blendable, pigmented, easy to work with, and lasted an average of eight hours on me (without a primer).

Compared to yesterday’s quint, I so much more prefer this one due to all the more satiny, soft pearl finishes that would go great with a more intense or bright lip! I honestly wish I could get it today to wear tonight at my meeting ☺️
