Dior 5 Colour Eyeshadow. Cienie do powiek Christian Dior 5 Couleurs.

Hello, 

this is a review of Christian Dior 5 Colour Eyeshadow palette called also 5 Couleurs Designer. This famous eyeshadow palette has been used by professional makeup artists everywhere in the world. The great thing about this product is that it comes in many different colours.

 From Sephora you can buy:

  • Bar 56 (a very interesting combination of colours: it contains browns, peach, white eyeshadows. It would be good for a day makeup look and will complement everybody's eyes)
  • Pied-De-Poule 96 (darker shades of brown and grey, good for creating a dramatic look)
  • Carré Bleu 276  (a variation of different shades of blue - cool and warm shades combined together)
  • Tutu 846 (peach, pink, lilac - cool and warm shades combined together, they look very intensive and colourful in the palette)

  • 166 Victoire (pink, plum, aubergine)
  • 566 Versailles (light and medium shades of brown and gold)
  • 156 Femme-Fleur (a very interesting combination of pinkie browns, this would especially suit people with hazel or green eyes but honestly it would be flattering on everyone)
  • 796 Cuir Cannage (warm, medium and darker browns, it would look gorgeous on autumn type women with ginger hair and warm complexion)
  • 646 30 Montaigne (warm, light shades of brown and peach)

Have you ever been to Paris? Could you compare blue of Paris to the colours of this eyeshadow palette? I have been there a few times, when I was a teenager, but at that time I wasn't interested in colour of the sky in Paris. There were certainly more interesting things on my mind then:). I have noticed that as we get older we start appreciating nature much more. Now I pay more attention to the colours of nature, changing of the seasons, singing birds, etc. Now we have -17 degrees Celsius here and I really admire the view of trees covered in blanket of snow.

My Dior's eyeshadow palette is a mini palette. It was sold together with Iconic Overcurl mascara. I got it during the summer sale and it was about 20 euros:).

The palette looks very sweet and it is small so the application may be difficult (actually it is a bit pain in the a...). On the other hand it is good for the travelings. 

It consists of five shades: they have different textures - four shades are shimmery and one shade is totally matte. It is worth mentioning that the shimmer doesn't look cheap on the contrary it is very elegant. All the colours are combined beautifully and are harmonious and pleasing to the eye. You can't go wrong with this palette. 

The colours are:

  • sky blue (shimmer) - it is a base - light, the lightest colour one in the palette,
  • denim blue (shimmer)-  colour - iridescent,
  • silver (shimmer)- shade - satinity,
  • dark grey (shimmer)- shine-pearlescent,
  • navy blue (matte)-liner - mat
  • mat, the darkest colour in this palette.
All the shades have blue undertone, even the silver and the grey one. Yes, I know now you are probably wondering how the silver one can be bluish:). But seriously it is this kind of silver with a blue hue. In the past I used to apply a silver eye kajal on my eyelids and many people were thinking that it was actually blue. How was this possible? The answer is that my complexion has cool/bluish undertone. 
Because Dior's palette is all about the blue it would be especially suitable for those of you who have cool undertones. It will compliment the colour of your complexion.

The eyeshadows are quite well pigmented and they blend well. With the primer they last all day longDior 5 Colour Eyeshadow applied in the morning still looks fresh in the evening. It is quite unbelievable because I have oily eyelids and my makeup tends to melt. But with Dior's eyeshadow palette there is no creasing. Hurrra! 

With 5 Colour Eyeshadow palette you can create two different looks: a natural look which is obviously great for the day time and the sophisticated look which is suitable for the evening. If you want to create a natural look you should use two upper shades plus the central one.

For the evening makeup use the two lower shades plus the middle one.

The center shade is the most important because it is used as a lightener for the natural and the sophisticated look. I have to admit I like the natural look more and I have been applying the makeup according to the instructions from Dior's site: http://backstage.dior.com/makeup-mag/en/?_ga=1.131014159.1498444998.1415524082#/look/3746/5-couleurs and I am very happy with the result. Christian Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow in Bleu de Paris makes my eyes stand out:). I would recommend this eyeshadow palette to everyone, especially - as I have said before - that you can't go wrong with it.
What is your favourite eyeshadow / eyeshadow palette?Greetings,

Now the same written in my native language:)

Czesc dziewczyny,

na poczatku przepraszam za brak polskiej czcionki, ale uzywam finskiego komputera i nie mam mozliwosci dodania polskich znakow. Mam skryta nadzieje, ze Wam to nie bedzie przeszkadzac. Z gory dziekuje za wyrozumialosc i zapraszam do lektury.

Chcialabym Wam zrecenzowac palete cieni od Diora. Ta paleta to prawdziwy klasyk uzywany przez makijazystow na calym swiecie. Mam wiec i ja:). A tak na powaznie, to paleta byla dolaczona do tuszu do rzes Iconic Overcurl i wszystko to za cene okolo 20 euro, wiec kto by sie nie skusil. Tym bardziej, ze zestaw jest w niebieskiej, chlodnej tonacji, wiec jak znalazl dla kobiety o typie urody lato, czyli dla mnie i wedle statystyk wiekszosci z Was.

Palety cieni Diora maja wiele roznych odmian kolorystycznych. Naprawde jest w czym wybierac. W czesci angielskiej opisalam krotko dostepne zestawy, jesli ktos jest zainteresowany, to zapraszam do zerkniecia wyzej. Tutaj mozne wspomne jeszcze raz o trzech zestawach, ktore wywarly na mnie najwieksze wrazenie:


  • 796 Cuir Cannage - zestaw brazow w cieplej tonacji. Wyobrazam sobie, ze swietnie pasowalby rudowlosym dziewczynom:)
  • 156 Femme-Fleur - bardzo interesujaca kombinacja rozowych brazow, najlepsza dla wlascicielek zielonych i tzw. piwnych oczu, choc tak naprawde, to pewnie pasowalaby kazdemu
  • Tutu 846 - roz, brzoskwinia, lila - bardzo kolorowo i wesolo, choc przyznam Wam, ze nie wiem czy bym sie odwazyla uzyc tego zestawu.

  • Sama jestem posiadaczka numeru 254 - Bleu de Paris. Przy tworzeniu tego zestawu kierowano sie podobno wizja koloru paryskiego nieba. Ja wpradzie bylam w Paryzu kilka razy, ale jako nastolatka, i wtedy nie kolor paryskiego nieba byl mi w glowie:). W ogole, to zauwazylam, ze dopiero niedawno zaczelam podziwiac nature, as I grow older (nie chce uzywac slowa: starzeje sie:).

    W zestawie cztery cienie maja polysk i tylko jeden jest matowy. Cienie z polyskiem bynajmniej nie wygladaja tanio, bazarowo, przeciwnie dodadza Wam eleganckiego uroku. Jednyny matowy cien w kolorze ciemno niebieskim najlepiej nadaje sie do rysowania kresek na powiece.

    Centralnym kolorem palety jest jasno niebieski cien, ktory moze byc uzyty w kombinacji z dwoma gornymi cieniami (dzinsowym niebieskim i srebrnym), albo z dwoma dolnymi cieniami (ciemnoszarym i ciemnoniebieskim). 
    Wszystko zalezy od tego jaki efekt chcemy uzyskac: naturalny czy wieczorowy tzw. sophisticated look:). Ja wole makijaz naturalny i musze Wam sie przyznac, ze korzystalam tu ze wskazowek zawartych na stronie Diora: http://backstage.dior.com/makeup-mag/en/?_ga=1.131014159.1498444998.1415524082#/look/3746/5-couleurs i efekt przerosl moje najsmielsze oczekiwania. W ogole polecam Wam zajrzycie na strone Diora, jest tam reklama tych cieni, ale bez  modelek. To raczej gra soczystymi barwami: wyobrazcie sobie sproszkowane cienie w soczystych kolorach wyrzucone w przestrzen. Niesamowite.

    Wracajac do cieni, to sa one swietne:
    • maja aksamitna teksture
    • nie rozmazuja sie
    • z primerem od Lumene pozostaja w stanie nienaruszonym do samego wieczora, a mam tlusta cere i ciagle cos majstruje przy twarzy
    • sa dosc dobrze napigmentowane
    • latwo sie blenduja
    • wydajne
    • bardzo harmonijnie polaczone pod wzgledem kolortystycznym
    • ciezko byloby zrobic sobie nimi krzywde, mam wrazenie, ze makijaz oczu mozna wykonac wrecz intuicyjnie
    • podkreslaja oczy, wydobywaja ich piekno, oczy wysuwaja sie zdecydowanie na pierwszy plan 
    Jedyne do czego sie mozna przyczepic, to oczywiscie cena, ale za jakosc sie placi. 

    Dziewczyny, mam nadzieje, ze moja recenzja jest dla Was przynajmniej w malym stopniu przydatna. Dla mnie to taki maly eksperyment: dwujezyczne recenzje w jednym poscie, ale chcialam bardzo sprobowac jak to bedzie wygladac. 

    Na zakonczenie polecam wszystkim palete cieni Diora i dziekuje za uwage.

    Pozdrawiam

    Christian Dior Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara review

    Hello,

    how are you? This is a review of Diorshow Iconic Overcurl. I will tell you one thing - this mascara is just great. A real classic. In the past I had an original Diorshow but I prefer the Overcurl more. The difference between those two is the brush. Overcurl has a curved brush that will give you a great curl.

    Diorshow Iconic Overcurl


    Pros:

    • intensive deep black color 
    • mascara won't fade
    • no clumping
    • no smudging
    • you will have really long lashes
    • your lashes will be curly 
    • mascara will give you a great volume
    • you will be able to create a false lash look
    • simple yet elegant packaging
    • easy application
    • applied in the morning mascara still looks good late in the evening

    Cons:

    • difficult to remove
    • pricey

    The manufacturer says that this mascara will nourish and strengthen your lashes as well. I am not so sure about that, actually I don't think so:). I would rather recommend using castor oil for this purpose.
    If you are a fan of a false lash look go for it, go...:).


    Thank you for reading and greetings,

    Joanna
