I am back with another eyeshadow review and it’s about a Dior Eyeshadow palette. It is called “Earth Reflection” in the number 609. I was clearing out my makeup drawers when I came across this one. I completely forgot about its existence and was introduced to it once again over the weekend.
This eyeshadow palette sparkles with iridescence. Creates a made-to-measure look for daring woman. Provides ultra-wet, metal-like colors that make eyes glitter Contains new generation of powders with pearlescent particles Silky yet almost creamy texture blends perfectly into eyelids. Leaves ultra-luminous finish and striking effect.
My Experience with Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette – Earth Reflection 609:
The packaging of this Christian Dior Eyeshadow is a royal blue colour sturdy box with silver detailing. It has CD embossed on the top of the box in cobalt blue and is only visible when the sun shines on it. I find it so luxurious and lush to hold in my hands; the colours definitely add to the exuberance. The Dior logo is also embossed on top of the eyeshadow quint in striking silver, which is very pleasant to the eye and definitely eye catching. The box also comes with a mirror as do the rest of the quints by Dior. This in my opinion is highly handy and useful, since you can view your actions in the mirror while you are on the go. There are 5 colours in this eyeshadow box and it also comes with two high quality eyeshadow applicators, which are great for application as well as blending.
As for the colours in the eyeshadow, I shall break them down for you in detail below.
Upper Left Corner: This colour is a very light beige sort of colour, leaning on golden. However, despite its golden-ish hues, it has a silver finish and slightly frosty. It has great pigmentation though, a single swipe is capable of giving you enough colour. Also, it blends really well and without much difficulty. Because of its silver undertones, it has an evident sheen to it and therefore is good for both day looks as well as night.
Lower Left Corner: This is a milk chocolate colour in my opinion, this too has silver undertones to it and therefore has a frosty finish to it, with a sheen. The pigmentation of this colour is great too, like the above, I was able to achieve decent colour with a single swipe with this one.
Upper Right Corner: This is a dark champagne colour, it is not as light as champagne, but not too dark to be called brown either. The finish of this one too is frosty and has silver dust particles in it too. The pigmentation of this colour did not disappoint me either, so I was really pleased.
Lower Right Corner: I would basically sum this one up by calling it a highlighter colour, it is a shiny ivory colour. This too has a frost finish, due to its silver undertones. It blends really well and I love Dior’s highlighter colours because they are so shiny and pigmented, those of you lovelies who want to have fuller looking lips, this is great to apply on the cupid’s bow. Eyes also pop, when this is applied in the inner corner of your eyes.
Middle: This is a frosty pink coloured eyeshadow, I am not a big fan of this colour since it is really chalky and you can’t even see any pink upon application. So overall it was a big disappointment.
All the colours above blend really well, have great pigmentation and their staying power is absolutely great! Without an eyelid primer, it stayed on for 5-6 hours without much difficulty. Also, I think this quint would be lovely for Diwali, since it is so great for festive seasons due to the metallic undertones. I am very pleased with this quint over all and think it is the perfect balance between loud and not too loud makeup.
