Toile de Jouy (429)

Dior Toile de Jouy (429) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new(er) warmer neutral color story that included a mix of finishes that ranged from matte to sparkle. This palette suffered from a general powderiness/dryness across the board compared to most of the brand’s eyeshadows. Most shades had semi-opaque or better coverage, and they were blendable, but they absolutely required a primer underneath and likely would sing for someone who tends to prefer a softer/sheerer effect.

Toile de Jouy #1

Toile de Jouy #1 is a light peach with warmer, more golden undertones and pink-to-orange shifting pearl. It had mostly opaque color coverage, which was buildable to full coverage. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too firmly nor too softly-pressed into the pan. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading.

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).

Toile de Jouy #2

Toile de Jouy #2 is a very light, peachy beige with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. The texture was slightly more powdery in its base, but it seemed to have decent adherence despite that, which helped the larger flecks of sparkle stay on the lid rather than all fall away. There was still a fair amount of fallout, though, so I’d recommend using it with a dampened brush or a fingertip to press it into the skin better. It had semi-opaque coverage that lasted decently for seven hours on me.

Toile de Jouy #3

Toile de Jouy #3 is a darker peach with muted, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had a soft, lightly powdery consistency, but it was very blendable and seemed to “melt” slightly when applied to bare skin. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that stayed on well for seven and a half hours.

Toile de Jouy #5

Toile de Jouy #5 is a medium taupe-brown with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow felt soft, finely-milled, and was very blendable, but there was light powderiness and a touch of fallout if I wasn’t careful. The pigmentation was semi-opaque and buildable, and it lasted well for seven and a half hours on me.

And here it was really beginning to look like Dior was nailing down their eyeshadow formula. This one is disappointing and wouldn’t show up on my med.-tan NW35 self very well, I’d imagine.

Possibly, but I don’t know that I’d want to spend quite that much for this when you could create a conservative look with shadows most of us already have. And their Soft Cashmere or Nude Dress palettes would give (IMO) an even nicer conservative type look. This one just seems to lack that “excitement” factor.

True.
There may be others around, people who don’t follow any makeup reviews or you tubers and own only one palette, buying a new one when the old is empty. I imagine there are s lot of people like that, I think they may like a palette like this. (I accidentally wrote “lapette” 🙂 )
I wouldn’t buy this one, Dior is far too expensive to buy one of their misses.
You are more of an expert when it comes to Dior, I’ve not bought anything from the brand in years and years, The last thing I bought was a quint, a green one with embossed stars. It’s a pretty one.

I was sure I replied to this post, Helene, but I must have forgot to hit “post comment”. I wanted to ask if the Dior palette you have – the one with the stars – is Bonne Etoile? I have that one and really love it. The colours are my favourites sorts of shades and the quality of the shadows is really excellent.

Yes, it’s Bonne Etoile.
I’ve not used it in years except once this year when I tried all my Dior quints and tossed about half of them.
It’s one of Diors winners, this green palette, I’m going to use it a lot now when fall is almost upon us. For some reason I love greens in the fall, generally I don’t change anything with the seasons. Maybe it’s because I miss the greens from summer.

Oh gosh – Dior quints (anything by Dior, actually) is so pricey here (well, their skincare is a fortune anywhere, I think) that I can’t imagine tossing even one of them…. Mind you, thanks to Christine and Temptalia, all the quints I’ve purchased have been winners (I think I only have 7 or maybe 8 of them, one of which I gave to my daughter because she loved it so much) and even the oldest of them – which is probably Bonne Etoile – has stood up just fine over the years. Where I live, we have such extremes of seasonal changes that I do change my makeup somewhat with the seasons (I couldn’t imagine wearing the shades from Bonne Etoile in the steamy, humid summers we have). I remember when it was released for “autumn” (it was part of an autumn release/collection) but it was released at high summer and even so, I was lucky to get the last one at my local department store that carries Dior. I remember thinking (and probably posting) at the time that it would be nice if these seasonal releases were actually available in the season they were released for.

The quints I tossed were old, really old some of them. I think two were for spring, one had glitter in two of the shades, and it had lots of fall down, pity it was in the ones I liked most, for colour. Another had really bad pigmentation, in all I tossed 7. I did try all of the quints, it took over a months I had to do two looks with some of them. It was fun, in a way as I knew what makeup to use every day, grab a quint and make the best of it. 🙂
I kept 14, what can I say, I used to be a Dior girl once upon a time. Now that they are getting most makeup right, I will probably buy from them again, they did have a time when they had problem with their eyeshadows. I bought a lovely, sparkly silver , single for an obscene amount of money and it was so bad, fall down, no pigment and I hadn’t found Temptalia back then, so no advise on how to make it work, and I didn’t read any reviews. I think I still have it, but have no Idea where.
I’m in northern Europe so we also have seasons.

“lacklustre” was exactly my reaction too, Genevieve. Even with palettes that aren’t my cup of tea, I still usually have an excited reaction to Dior’s palettes but not with this one.
