Natalie Thursday, March 24, 2011
I received this palette in a swap yesterday, and thought I would share with you some photos & swatches!

Dior 5-Colour Iridescent Eyeshadow No. 659 Crush Glow

Product Description: Your eyes have never beheld such brilliance. Shimmering palettes created with Dior's phenomenal new Wet Reflect™ technology. Ultra-reflective. Ultra-luminous. Ultra-incredible. Five metallic-rich shades in each palette. Silky-smooth and weightless. So blendable, the colors virtually fuse with the skin for looks that defy creasing, smudging or fading. (Source: http://nordstrom.com)

Crush Glow was a part of Dior's Summer 2010 collection. The palette contains a peachy gold shimmer, light pink/champagne shimmer, copper bronze shimmer, coral-pink with a slight frost and a silvery taupe with a pink pearl. All of the shadows are soft and pigmented. The bronze is the most pigmented shade from the quint. All of the colors are beautiful and they all go very well with each other. I think it's a perfect color palette for the Spring & Summer.


Now that Dior has reformulated their 5-Colour Eyeshadows, Crush Glow seems to resemble Sunset Cafe - but after looking up swatches of Sunset Cafe, they are a bit different and I actually like Crush Glow much, much more.



Here are the colors swatched without a base.

Although I haven't tested any of the colors on my eyes, just from swatching them, I'm very satisfied with the color payoff, blendability and consistency of the shadows (they are so soft!)

I'm excited to try it out, and I should have some looks for you soon!

What is your favorite Dior Quint??

  13. Look how nice they look even without a base. I only own a few Dior shadows and they are richly pigmented. The gold and purple are really going to make your eye color pop so beautifully!
    You know me and red polish but wow, that is a beautiful orange red color you are wearing! What is it?
