Craving for an eye shadows palette which can look gorgeous for both morning and evening make up? In our over-crowded daily lives, there’s often no time to get back home, have a shower, change clothes and make up before dining out or having an after-office drink. As well as there is no space and will to completely change our look, with a totally different palette. For this reason, a good combination of naturals can be the best option to add that little extra when starting to work, without looking as a Moulin Rouge star. As well as to look pretty and not shabby when sipping your Spritz.
As promised, here you get an other wonderful pick from my recent trip to Paris. The palette has the magical signature of Dior and belongs to the world-famous 5 couleurs and is the ‘Designer’ version in the shade #708 Amber Design.
Let’s start from the packaging. It comes protected by the usual black velvety pochette and with a mini flyer showing the best way to use all the five shades together.
The case is made of premium quality plastics, meaning it won’t get dirty soon and it will protect the content, if you pack it into your suitcase or bag.
The concept of the palette is perfect for a dawn to dusk make up, as it was created to allow a layering technique. So a little less as you wake up, to add more during the day.
Coming more in detail to the description of the shades…the 5 couleur Designer palette in the combination Amber design 708 is organized as it follows:
1.Base (light), 2. Color (iridescent), 3. Shade (satin), 4. Shine (pearlescent) and 5. Liner (matte). These 5 shadows represent the essential steps used by professional makeup artists to draw attention to the eyes and create ultra-graphic eye makeup looks.
Coming to the finish of the eye shadows, those at the left side of the case are a little sparkling and very glamorous, the darkest shade, the peachy-pink at the top right is very sparkling and the one in the middle is a hot, bright champagne-orange tone.
The darkest has a creamy consistency and can be used as an eyeliner, along the lash line.
I think they’re among the best colors to emphasize green eyes.
And by the way, you can use it not only in autumn, for its hot, but natural looking nude-brown shades, but all year long, whenever you’re in a chic mood.
I’m looking forward to play more with it!
Just a commercial tip: if you’re willing to purchase this, you’d better check it at the airport duty free, where it’s available with a nice discounted price. Better to shop it at the airport, rather then in town.
