Makeup Monday !!!
I’ve been loving my Dior 5 Couleurs Couture eyeshadow palettes. The colors are smooth, they blend well and are named after collections from the iconic fashion house. Now, the time has finally come to swatch them for you all! In this LookBook I’ve provided swatches from 859 Pink Corolle and 879 Rouge Trafalgar. Let’s hop right in, shall we?
859 Pink Corolle
859 Pink Corolle was the first palette I purchased from this line. It’s the one that started the obsession with this formula. Below are photos of each individual color alone, with a topper and on deep and “fair” skin. I’ve used the inside of my forearm for the deep skin swatches. To get an idea of what the pigments look like on lighter skin, I’ve used my fingertips. I’ve labeled each color 1 through 5 as per the packaging. I’ve used no filter in an attempt to show the color as true to life as possible.
Colors one, three and four look quite similar in these photos. That is not the case in real life. The photos of the pan are more true to real life. It truly is a diverse and beautiful palette.
879 Rouge Trafalgar
879 Rouge Trafalgar was my most coveted color story from Dior’s 5 Couleurs Couture line. I saw it demonstrated in real time on their website and simply had to have it. I’m so happy that it’s a part of my collection. As you’ll see from the following swatches, it did not disappoint.
Number 5 appears brown in the pan, yet when swatched it is decidedly plum. Number 2 is a sheer, chunky glitter. This surprised me, as I thought it would be more of a shimmer, similar to Number 1 from Pink Corolle.
I think both palettes are beautiful and can compliment most, if not all skin tones. What do you think? Could you pull off these color stories? Are you considering any palettes from this line? Let me know.
I hope you enjoyed this swatch party! Got any questions about the palettes featured here? Leave them in the comment section.
