Everyday I am telling myself that I really don’t need another palette of eye shadows, but I keep on making the same mistake whenever I spot a beautiful neutral palette. Case in point is the Dior 5 Colors Couture Eye Shadow Palette 746 Ambre Nuit from the 2015 Summer Tie Dye Collection that I acquired recently. I am in love with every single color so I can not let it go!
What draws me into this palette is the color combination – they are neutral and fresh. If the Dior Eye Reviver (reviewed here) was a sophisticated palette, then the Ambre Nuit would be a pretty palette with a youthful touch. There is a variety of textures in this palette range from semi-satin to shimmery, and the colors are great for creating depth and impact to the eyes without aging you.
I don’t need to repeating the quality and texture of Dior 5 colors Couture Eyeshadows. They are always excellent – great pigmentation, silky smooth texture, and takes no effort to apply them with absolutely no fall out. The colors are more suitable for day time wear, as they look very soft and natural looking on the eyes. I always have a flair for these kind of eye shadows, as anything that is too intense or opaque tends to make me look fierce.
Color Description: (clockwise)
Top Left – Peachy pink with a hint of rose gold sheen in a semi-satin finish. I can guarantee that this color will be hitting the pan the soonest as it applies beautifully as a wash of color over the eye socket.
Top Right – Medium brown shimmer that gives a lovely sheen depending on the angle you look at.
Bottom Right – A perfect taupe color with an eggplant undertone in a semi-matte finish. This cool neutral color complements the rest of the warm shades perfectly.
Bottom Left – Dark brown with very fine silver glitters. An intense color and is easy to blend with the other colors.
Middle – An icy ivory color in high shimmer. The shade is very pigmented, so a little goes a long way for highlighting purpose and it is extremely buttery smooth to apply.
Bottom Line: A must-have neutral eyeshadow palette to have for this year!
The Dior Ambre Nuit is available at Nordstrom in the US, and here in Australia. I bought mine in my current second home town Stockholm
PS: Nordstrom has started their half yearly sales!
