The 5 Couleurs High Fidelity Colors and Effects Eyeshadow Palette is a symbol of Dior look which always reminds of the expertise that we can give an example of in terms of color and the visual effects. The 5 Couleurs palette is reinvented in 12 color harmonies this season. It is said to be more creative, with stronger pigments and richer effects. Each color harmony is precisely worked on so that the effects and colors of one palette are easily blended with each other to create a perfectly balanced makeup.
I was sent these 5 Couleurs High Fidelity Colors and Effects Eyeshadow Palette in shades 537 Touch Matte, 657 Expose, and 757 Dream Matte. The packaging of this eyeshadow palette is slimmer than the earlier versions, making it look more stylish. The reinvented color harmonies offer new finishes like Matte, Velvet, Satin, Lame, Iridescent, Glitter and Shiny. These harmonies are inspired by the catwalk fabrics which make the colors vibrate with multiple highlights. The formula of the new 5 Couleurs palette has same results on the eyelid as seen in the case. The pigments, in these high impact colors, are formulated into powders using binders that create a creamy application with the fingertips. The staying power of these 5 Couleurs palette is spectacular. The applicators provided with this palette are foam applicators, liner applicator and long eyeshadow brush.
‘For a natural look, apply the medium shade on the entire eyelid with the round foam tip to open up the eyes, and then the darker shade along the lashline with the liner tip for definition. Using the brush, highlight with the lighter shade beneath the brow arch and at the inner corner of the eye to widen the eyes.
For a sophisticated look, apply the medium shade on the entire eyelid with the round foam tip to open up the eyes, and then the darker shade along the lashline with the liner tip for definition. Blend over the entire eyelid and outward using the brush. Use the round foam tip to highlight with the lighter shade beneath the brow arch and at the inner corner of the eye to create even greater contrast and structure.', from Dior official website.
5 Couleurs Eyeshadow 537 Touch Matte is a neutral matte palette with shades that are wearable for most skin tones.
The formula is light weight and they are easily blendable. The pigment can be easily build up based on the requirement.I usually am not a fan of matte eyeshadows but this looks quite wearable for me. The shades are very soft and neutral and can work for both day and night looks.
5 Couleurs Eyeshadow 657 Expose is a gorgeous collection of khaki green, burgundy, and a pale champagne. This is the one I liked the most amongst the three I am reviewing today.
It is a really gorgeous selection of shades which are very close to each and blend into each other very nicely. They are warm and very glowy. I am thinking of using this palette in different ways as they shades are something I think suit so much on my complexion and my brown eyes. This shades in this palette are highly pigmented and they do blend very easily.
5 Couleurs Eyeshadow 757 Dream Matte is a matte palette with a mix of cool and warm shades.
They are quite pigmented and blend so easily. The texture of this eyeshadow is very soft, they are no grainy or dry. For a matte eye shadow, it is important to be not soft and not stiff, which helps them blend easily and does not accentuate any fine lines.
These eyeshadows are quite a good combination of quality and combination of shades. All the harmonies are created so well and they are close to each other making them blend so well with each other. I am a fan.
The 5 Couleurs High Fidelity Colors and Effects Eyeshadow Palette retails for CAD $72 excluding taxes and is available at all Dior retailers and sites including Sephora.
