Review + swatches + look – Dior Holiday 2015 Collection – 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes in 576 Eternal Gold and 886 Blazing Gold, and Diorshow Fushion Mono Eyeshadow in 631 Blazing

For Holiday 2015, Dior has released a collection featuring fiery reds, vibrant golds, and cool greys. Today I’m featuring the two eye palettes of this collection, the 5 Couleurs Palettes in 576 Eternal Gold and 886 Blazing Gold, as well as the Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow in 631 Blazing.

Both of the 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes have incredibly smooth textures that are very softly refined and have great pigmentation. I haven’t used a Dior palette in a while but the ones I own from a few years ago were drier, patchier, and not as easy to blend. These almost feel like a powdery cream in the way that it feels on the skin. They blended like a dream, but because they are quite soft and loosely pressed, I did notice some fallout which I cleaned up afterwards.

576 Eternal Gold is the more cool-toned of the two palettes, featuring a cool grey on the top left, combined with a dusty purple on the bottom left. The liner shade is a glittery black, and the highlight shade is a subtle light gold. The middle of the palette’s “pop” shade is a metallic gold that can be used in the centre of the eyelid for a pop of gold.

886 Blazing Gold is the more warm-toned of the two palettes. Blazing Gold’s star colour is that rusty red on the top left corner, and this red is accentuated by the dusty mauve-taupe on the bottle left corner. The highlight shade on the top right corner is a shimmery light pink, with the liner shade being a glittery dark grey. Lastly, the middle of the palette features a metallic gold “pop” shade that can be used over top the entire look for a pop of glitter.

Of the two palettes, Blazing Gold stands out more because of that beautiful brick red. It’s not the most wearable eyeshadow colour, but it’s definitely the most unique. Apart from the two shades on the left of the palette, the rest of the palette looks very similar between the two variations. I would recommend just picking one of these up because you’d essentially be getting 2/5 of the palette being mostly dupes (the dark glittery shade and the centre pop shade).

I don’t have anything negative to say about the colours and the formulas themselves, but I found that the palette construction can be improved – the pans were a bit loose when I was using these. Although I don’t think they’d fall out, for the price of a Dior palette, I’d expect it to be glued in better.

Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow in 631 Blazing is a beautiful shimmery gold with subtle glitter. This is my first foray into the Diorshow Fusion eyeshadows and so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but unfortunately I was left feeling a bit underwhelmed. I was expecting more pigmentation, but it ended up being very sheer. I’d use this on top of my eyeshadow as a pop shade, or to subtly highlight the brow bone and inner corners of the eyes. I’d also use this with a fluffy cheek brush as a subtle cheek highlighter.

Stay tuned for the second part of my review!

    • Yes, I dropped Eternal Gold after I got it, my heart shattered at the same time 😦 I haven’t tried using it as a blush, but that sounds like a good idea! I’ll try that next time 🙂
