|Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette 031 Blue Garden|
As promised, here are more pictures of the Dior quint from the Spring 2016 collection Glowing Gardens. The central shade is a light blue with strong hints of mint green. The upper left shade is a light peach and the upper right is a bright white. The two lower shades are silver and blue grey. All of them are very sheer when applied, with a light shimmer.
The compact is the same size and style as other quints in the brand's general line. However, the eyeshadows themselves are embossed with a lovely flower print. Two applicators are included, much like other quints from the brand. They're foam applicators so most people probably don't use them. One of them has a small brush on the other side.
I wore this the other day using the silver as the lid base color, the darker grey as a liner and the peach layered on top, into the crease and above it. Then I used the white as a brow highlight. It was all very natural. Admittedly though, it wouldn't show at all in photographs. I might as well be wearing nothing at all. In the age of the selfie, that probably wouldn't fly.
For now, I'm going to start skipping these Dior quints again. It feels like I could get much better quality eyeshadows for the price I'm paying. I'm happy to keep these but I would not recommend them to anyone.
