Used for Review: UDPP & MAC's 239, 224, 228, 219.
Upper Left Hand Corner: Really gorgeous mauve-y taupe. Slightly shimmery with tiny gold and pink sparkles. The texture is thin and kinda hard though (as in... you don't get much on your brush or finger with one swipe). It's also not very pigmented. You really gotta pack it on to get the color you see in the palette. The closest e/s in my collection is Urban Decay's Bordello which is a little lighter, slightly more purple/less taupe, quite a bit more shimmery / reflective, and has much better texture/pigmentation.
Upper Right Hand Corner: The idiot of the bunch. Every palette has gotta have one I suppose. It's a pale pink with white shimmer. The pigmentation of this shadow is very poor and the color isn't true to what you see in the palette. It swatches as a sheer frosty white. Very boring.
Lower Right Hand Corner: Medium Mauve with very slight shimmer. It shows up as more of a satin finish on the eyelid. Pretty color, but again the texture is thin and kinda hard (though not quite as bad as the color on the upper left) and the pigmentation isn't very good. It takes two to three swatches layered (on arm) to get totally opaque color. The closest match I have in my stash is TheBalm Curvy Cami. It's a bit darker, has more shimmer and a little sparkle, and has much better texture/pigmentation.
Lower Left Hand Corner: Extremely deep purple with a very slight reddish hue. Looks a little shimmery in the palette, but swatches with only a very slight sheen. Looks matte on eyes. Again, thin, a little hard, and under pigmented. I don't have many dark purples to compare this too. The closest I have is Urban Decay's Rockstar... which isn't quite as dark, has absolutely no red, is far more shimmery/reflective, and has much better texture/pigmentation.
Center: This shade is the reason I've kept this palette so long. I know it's just a highlighter, but there's something special about it. It's a shimmery light cream with a pink sheen/duochrome and tiny multicolor sparkles. A little softer and easier to apply than the other shades. I don't have anything in my stash that is at all similar.
Once I get enough color build up on my eyelids (minus the pink shade which I never use), this quint does look great. It's office appropriate while still lending a little color.
Bottom Line: I LOVE the center highlighting shade. The pink shade sucks, and the other 3 are pretty but don't have the best texture or pigmentation. All in all, I won't repurchase.

I gave this to my mother as I don't wear much eye makeup. Luckily my aunt gifted this to me so I didn't have to spend the $40+. Texture is very smooth and has good wearing time.

It pains me to rate it so low, but I have tried time and again to make this work and I have finally given up.
The good stuff:
Very soft, beautiful colours. They work together for a sweet violet look, or individualy. The staying power I cannot comment as I always use them over TFSI. Odourless and quite a lot of product. Good descriptions on previous reviews.
The bad stuff:
Almost invisible. I did my homework and studied the reviews and knew perfectly well I was going to buy a "low pigmented" pallet. But I was surprised! It is worse than I expected. The upper right (pink) is almost invisible, the upper left too, the lower right not much better and you cannot tell it from the upper left. The white in the middle is a nothing-special highlighter. The only colour that actually stands out is the dark mauve on the bottom left.
I use all 5 colours on my eyes and I seem to get a somewhat gradient mauve, from pale pink to darker mauve but honestly, this is nothing that requires 5 different e/s. Just 2 and a blending brush (if at all).
Also I seem to get a lot of glitter fallout during application. I do not load the brush (either MAC 249 or 239) and I pat them on my eyelid, but still it's like using TF Glamazon! I am not sure which colour it is and I am afraid all 5 contribute, although the lid colour I get is not sparkly.
All in all, I am not very happy with my purchase. Very expensive for the result, and varying quality of individual shades. I will keep using it but not buy again.

its def on the expensive side, as far as eyeshadow goes. but for 5 amazing eyehadows, its worth it. these colors look gorgeous on my pale skin with my blue eyes. i like to mix the pink gray and middle color, or the light purple dark purple and middle color. i can create such a beautiful look with these 5 eyeshadows. the compact is so adorable. i got a free smaple size and i'll def repurchase the full size when im done with these glam shades.

I really like this palette. Christian Dior makes such wonderful eye shadows, that blend so easily together. These shadows have such a lovely sheen. I use the centre ice pink as a base, the right corner pink as an inner eye and brow highlighter. Then I use either or both of the mauve shades on the outer half of the eye, and the deep plum in the shadow, blending it all together. It gives a lovely day time look, which can be enhanced for night time by using more of the deep plum.
I bought this palette from Strawberry Net, and one shade shattered in transport. They, very generously, replace it for me.

I finally bought this palette because I had a giftcard for sephora, otherwise it is hard to spend nearly $60 for eyeshadow. I used to wear this at work when I worked for the CD counter. It's great on many different complexions and you cannot beat Dior's pigments. Love it.

Dior Stylish Move eyeshadow quad ($58 USA) has a different variation shades of a soft purple. It applies smoothly and contains no scent. One big down fall is the lack of a strong pigmentation. The pigments are there of the 5 different shades, but they are subtle. You would have to pack the eyeshadow to get the right amount of pigments. Other than that, this is a pretty quad to have for people who love mild purple and want an convenience of traveling with an eyeshadow palette. Stylish Move creates a soft neutral purple look that goes with any outfits and occasion. You can use the deeper purple to get a smoky look. The compact comes with 2 sponge tip applications and a deep blue velvet pouch for traveling.

The Stylish Move quint has been at the top of my Dior wishlist for a long time. It's a lovely palette with pretty, wearable shades in various purples and mauves. Most of the shades are well pigmented and easy to work with, but I find the light pink in the top corner too sheer and a bit chalky, and the white in the middle is just pure chalk, I don't know what to do with it. I would recommend Night Butterfly or Petal Shine if you don't have those yet, but otherwise Stylish Move is definitely one to consider from this line.

I tried this at sephora, and I loved it, I only used the dark purple shade to create a smokey eye and then another Dior orange for the crease. I found the texture lovely and very blendable and easy to apply. The only reason I wouldnt buy it is bc I cant justify spending that much on an eyeshadow. I'll stick to MAC

This is probably, at this point in time, my favourite eyeshadow palette. The colours are all beautiful, whether alone, worn with other colours, or with each other. The pale, central colour has become my favourite base, and I really like using the dark purple as a liner, whether by itself, or on top of black liquid liner to emphasize it. I have recently gone brunette, and have noticed that the mauve colour now looks much better on me, while as a blonde, it made my eyes look a bit pink and the whole effect was rather washed out. The one colour I probably don't use as much is the grey taupish one, but that is because I have another similar shade which I prefer to use.
All in all, long-lasting gorgeous colours. The palette is easy to use and easy to carry around. The only drawback is the price, which is really steep. I fell in love with the colours and bought it as an indulgence, otherwise I wouldn't spend this much money on eyeshadows. However, cannot say that I regret it!

I love these colors- well, three of them. I don't wear the one in the center or the pink in the upper right hand corner. Both are really frosty on me and unflattering on my warm skintone. However, I love the others so much that it's still worth having to me. I also love the compact itself and the mirror inside, which is actually big enough to be useful, which is rare I think when a mirror is part of the packaging. These blend well and have great staying power and the colors are very pigmented. Dior's eyeshadow game is really on point. These are definitely a splurge, but I think they're worth it.

You'd think I have some sort of violet eyeshadow obsession by the looks of my stash. Apparently I can never have too many. Anything in the purple family just appeals to me. I reach for this so often, especially when I want to do a daytime smokey eye... it's less dramatic than grey, and more flattering on my skin tone than browns.
I've had this palette for a couple of months now and I've worn all of the colors together and paired with other shadows. I don't usually breakdown colors in a palette like this when writing my reviews (and I see that so many others have described the colors beautifully), but I will say that the the deepest purple/plum color looks phenomenal as an eyeliner. It has a sheer, flashy, iridescent effect when applied with a dampened, thin eyeliner brush.
This is a must if you have green or hazel eyes. I would buy it again in a heartbeat. Beautiful quality, great pigmentation. I want so many of the other Dior quints now!

I've learned to like this although first when I bought it I felt it emphasized the redness in my eyes. But now I feel that it suits pretty well with my green eyes. The taupe colour is pretty metallic, the dark plum very soft and velvety. All and all I like the quality of all 5 colours. I also own a couple of other quints: Pink Idol, Sunset Cafe and Tender Chic and like them all very much.

I LOVE this quint, although recently, it's taken a backseat to my beloved Dior Night Butterfly quint. This was the quint that started my obsession with them though! I absolutely adore the deepest shade in this. It's the perfect smokey plum that isn't too dark, but is deep enough to add some sultry dimension to a smokey eye. This would've been 5 star worthy if the entire palette as a whole was more useable .. however I've found that a couple of the other colors don't apply quite as smoothly and don't feel as silky. The deepest shade though salvages the quint and makes it a much loved palette in my stash. Definitely one that I'm happy to have in my arsenal, and one that I think would work with a variety of eye colors!

I wanted to love this quint so badly, but unfortunately, our love was not to be. I have NC/NW 20 skin, green eyes, and reddish blonde hair. I love the shimmery white and the light pink color, but they weren't enough to warrant keeping this quint. I have always been told that purples should work for me (should being the operative word here); however, I have a hard time finding purples that doesn't make my eyes look bruised or garish (this palette definitely fulfills the former). This palette has an array of gorgeous colors, but even after a few months of playing around with this palette, I couldn't get it to work for me. Gorgeous colors, but I'll go back to my other quints.
EDIT: I got this a second time, and it looks okay for the first hour or so that it's on (actually got a compliment from a few people), but as time goes on, I find it makes my eyes look bruised and REALLY red. I thought it was allergies, so I took off the shadow, and my eyes looked fine (no red at all). The next day, I tried the quint again, and my eyes looked totally bloodshot within the first few hours I wore it. My eyes aren't irritated from the shadow itself, so I think this is an issue of the shadows making my eyes appear bruised and red. Sadly, for this quint, it's two strikes, and it's out. :(

This is my second Dior quint; I am planning on slowly building that collection. This palette comes with five colours in different textures. the center section is a pink sheen (something I think MAC's pink opal pigment would be) It's absolutely GORGEOUS! One very light pink that looks like a off white on the skin with noticeable a pearl finish. One pearly taupe, one dirty lilac colour with a slight shimmer and a beautiful plummy burgundy maroon with slight shimmer. The last two colours can be catergorized as satin; it is not matte. This palette is unlike the iridescent palettes because there is less shimmer. The shimmer on those is insane and can quickly become overkill. If you are familiar with MAC e/s finishes the iridescents are like veluxe pearl or starflash where as this palette is has satin e/s and one frost. Some have said that it is hard to blend, but that is not the fault of the e/s. I find that most people are just used to very shimmery e/s which are great but they blend VERY easily. As well, any mistakes are diffused in the shimmer anyways. Other textures are far less forgiving but give you more options to shape the eye and give depth than only shimmer. As well, while at a Dior counter recently, the Canadian National Makeup-Artist for Dior was there and like matte/satin shades more than shimmer because it creates a smoother eye, whereas iridescents can sometimes make the eye look dry and crepey. Something to think about. I have NC20-25 asian skin and the colours all work well with my skin tone. I cannot speak for other skintones but can't imagine it clashing with any terribly. As well, being Chinese, my eyes are dark brown almost black, so there really isn't a colour that makes the eye colour 'pop' as with other coloured eyes, BUT i can see it agreeing quite well with greens, browns lighter than mine, hazel and even greyish eyes. All five colours coordinate beautifully with each other in any combination so don't be afraid to used all in one look. Applied lighlty and blended well, the palette is very neutral and office friendly. You can also build up the same colours for a dramatic smoky eye. This is a great way to introduce a little colour to the usual neutral brown daytime look without saying "Look at me! I'm wild young and free with my non-brown eye shadow!" The insert that comes with the palette describes it as a 'cult' fave. Lol. Now I know why! I would purchase again if I had to. The price is okay, much less than other luxury brands like YSL, Gvenchy, Chanel etc. Packaging is sleek, sexy and elegant. Just like the looks it gives you! I have Petal Shine (another purple/pink themed palette) and think that you should still get this one too. They are both superb and different enough to warrant buying both. Give it a try ladies, you have nothing to lose!

This was my first dior shadow purchase - so I decided to save and get the travel (mini) size on ebay. It is super tiny - can hardly fit the brush into the compartments. Oh well... I do agree that the colors are very pretty. the darkest purple is very pigmented and is great for lining. the med purple on the right shows up quite light - but I will keep experimenting with it.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
This quad has beautiful colors and the pigmentation is great!
The only downside to this is its price! I mean, I would rather go out and buy MAC eyeshadows than this.. I got this as a gift, otherwise I don't think I would've ever purchased it.

This is a great palette for fall. The plum & lilac colors bring out my brown eyes. My favorite thing about the Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow is that they are in diamond shapes. The packaging is amazing; love the blue velvet pouch. Would love to buy more in different shades, but its currently a little pricey for me to splurge.

This was my first Dior quint since then I have purchased two others (Parisian Lights & Tropical Light). The colors in this one are amazing. Texture is amazing as well as pigmentation. The quad is very versatile and great for fall. I love how Dior quads always seem to include that one brown/taupe color.
