Sienna (696)

Dior Sienna (696) High Fidelity Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for summer featuring five warm-toned neutrals–all with shimmer–that performed well. I only had some trouble with the first shade, which was sheerer and a bit drier, while the other four shades were pigmented and easy to work with. If you tend to like more pearly finishes–shimmery but not metallic–you may find that this palette up your alley.

Sienna #1

Sienna #1 is a bright pop of peach with strong, warm orange-gold shimmer and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, slightly drier texture but it applied more smoothly to my lid than I expected–it almost seemed to “melt” slightly. The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Sienna #2

Sienna #2 is a bright, pale yellow with soft, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my skin. The consistency was firmer to the touch but not stiff and picked up evenly with a brush. The eyeshadow was easy to work with and blended out well on my lid. It lasted for eight hours before fading a bit.

Sienna #3

Sienna #3 is a rich, rusty orange with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The color payoff was opaque in one layer with a smooth, denser consistency that was firm but not stiff to work with. The eyeshadow melted against my skin, which gave it a smoother, shinier finish that was easy to blend out. It wore well for eight hours before fading slightly.

Sienna #4 is a muted, medium-dark copper with warm undertones and a pearly sheen.

It stayed on nicely for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Sienna #5

Sienna #5 is a medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a pearly finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, which adhered well to bare skin and blended out without difficulty.

I’m sincerely hoping orange eyeshadow isn’t merely a “trend,” as it actually looks great on some of us. Granted, it doesn’t need to be in every other palette…

It’s good to see Dior produce an excellent eyeshadow quint, because they have been really up and down the past few years. The shades are pretty and complementary. A lovely palette.

Even though I know I will need to check for dupes here so that I don’t have doubles galore, this is super nice looking on! I’ve got a feeling that I probably have these shades, though. (But not in a little quint or quad!)

Sigh.
This palette is so pretty!!!!

By the same token, I have to say, that I am so over all of these
redundant “warm neutral”, orange-leaning eye shadow palettes of the past couple of years, which also happen to look horrid on me despite my best efforts 🙁

A request to the powers that be…MAKE SOME QUALITY, COOL TONED PALETTES FOR THE REST OF US!!!
I understand that greys and mauves are harder to “get right” but spend a few bucks on R&D (that we’ve siphoned into your coffers over the years), AND JUST DO IT!!!
Rant over.

Very helpful. I love this collection and really am waiting to see the review for the Terra quint. I think it looks a lot like Tom Ford Honeymoon, but will see what you and others think. Dior did a great job with reformulating their quints. I have some older ones and I prefer the newer texture. This collection is beautiful.
