This is a very expensive designer product and i received it as a Christmas gift from my family and am delighted with it. I have mature, crepey wrinkled skin round my eyes which I thought only cosmetic surgery could rescue but Dior works miracles for an optical illusion of smooth skin and beautiful symmetrical eye shapes. I had a Department Store MUA apply this for me and teach me how to do it at home so I am 100% happy with the look and feel of the product on my skin. It just glides on, blends beautifully and doesnt crease. It is a satiny product so it doesnt sparkle too much, neither is it too matte which can look chalky and dull.
I recommend these eyeshadows for women of all ages, especially the elderly, who find they are more limited in terms of colours and textures, if they want a really flattering look
Love love love. Blends perfectly, long lasting, does not crease, heaven to apply, luxurious and worth the price. My only gripe is I have to throw mine out pretty soon (it's been 2-3 years since I got them). I've hit the pan but there are still respectable amounts left. Will surely repurchase, but maybe in different colors. It's a must have in my collection.
Love these eye shadows. They are very pigment rich and last a long time. The colors it comes with in the palettes compliment each other and it takes the guess work out of having to pick shadows. These are truely wonderful.
I got the Night Butterfly for my birthday and fell in LOVE with it. The colors are amazing and blend like a dream. I would be willing to spend the cash on another one.
I absolutly love these shadows they are ultra fine and last so long. They are easily blendable and they just look so good on your face. I have bought numourous. They are expensive, but for a treat, you should buy yourself one. My eyeshadows last so long that it is totally worth it.
I bought the 5-pan eyeshadows in Earth Reflection and i'm loving it ! Long-wearing and pigmented colors. The gold is really pretty and shiny..but the pink in the middle is a little too pale, but overall Dior 5-pan worth the money!
I have tried 2 different compacts, one was shades of purple and my recent one is called "Smoky Light." Maybe it's just because I am used to Urban Decay and Too Faced, but to me these are so sheer! The compact I have has 2 greys and 2 browns and no matter which color I use they pretty much look the same. They are smooth and not too shimmery, but there isn't much too them! I've gotten better color from drugstore brands! I'm not sure why people love these so much, it's so expensive for such little pigment.
I'm a fairly recent convert to Dior quints but I adore them.
Gorgeous, silky, very pigmented shadows that blend like a dream & last until I take them off.
The more shimmery shadows never come across as overly frosty & garish. Beautiful shimmer that's not OTT, they simply look stunning.
Whilst Dior doesn't tend to have many shades available to those who love brighter shades, there's probably a quint that would appeal to most people. I tend to rely on MAC & NARS for my brights fix but for beautiful neutrals, daytime colours & stunning smoky shades, Dior keeps me coming back for more.
Pricey, but well worth the splurge as you need only use a small amount of shadow so they last a long while. continued >>
I was using the CD Iridescent Goldfever 589 5-color palette and I'm blown away. It's pricey, but my absolute favorite! the color is not going to be under my eyes, it stays nicely on my eyes and it's texture is silky. I'll try definitely it again, but only maybe a different color-palette.
Though I find that Dior makes great eyeshadow textures, I really don't get how they put their palettes together. How can you achieve any difinition with 5 iridescent eyeshadows? It's only shimmer upon shimmer.
To really achieve a beautiful harmonious look you need to mix the regular 5 pan palettes with the iridescent and the matte mono eyeshadows, actually like a real pro would do. But to me the whole idea of a palette is to have eveything into one, no?
My ideal Dior 5-colours palette would have pans with different textures/finishes:
- 2 iridescent: one for the eyelid, the other to highlight the inner corner.
- 2 satins: a medium for the crease and a light for the browbone.
- 1 dark satin/matte for outer corner and linning.
I know Dior just came out with their Designer palettes, but those are monochrome and not as interesting colourwise as there other palettes. I'm under the impression that those were directly inspired by the often monochrome palettes you find from Japanse brands like Maquillage and Coffret d'Or.
