Night Walk (043)

Dior Night Walk (043) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($68.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday palette that was a grayscale, smoky color story with a darker gold in the center. I did feel like the inclusion of such a warm, contrasting gold might not be the right move. Given that the brand had a warmer, bronzy color story released alongside this one, I think keeping warm/cool would have made more sense. Nonetheless, the quality wasn’t high enough to make this particular palette compelling.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to have a "creamy and comfortable texture" that is long-wearing and has "intense color" (or "high-pigment"). There are five finishes that can be found within various palettes: matte, satin, shimmer, metallic, highlighter, and glitter, though there aren't specific descriptions by finish, unfortunately.

There were a few shades that seemed more sparkly and were sheerer, more like layering shades, while the other finishes tended to be pigmented. In general, the texture was moderately dense with the matte shades being slightly thinner and a smidgen powdery in the pan compared to the satin, shimmer, and metallic shades.

Aside from those more sparkly shades, the formula was blendable, pigmented, easy to work with, and lasted an average of eight hours on me (without a primer).

I am not surprised by the review. I did contemplate this particular palette for a hot minute. I like the color story overall, except not sure about that gold but I wouldn’t use the black and with the other three colors the tone is very similar so wouldn’t be distinguishable from one another. After finger swatching, I wasn’t impressed. I use to buy at least one palette from every Dior and Chanel release and just haven’t seen anything that really wow’s me.

Dior, if you are reading this; PLEASE go back to your previous formula from I think late 2018 or early 2019, for goodness sake!
Because even a little less than $68 smackaroos got me a far superior performing Huda Beauty 18-pan palette! Oh, and it lets me go in several different tonal families:black/grey/silver or more purplish or cooler brown, too!

What a disappointing release the two Dior quints are.
The gold shade in this palette is strange. I sometime use both warm and cool tones in a look, but this has such cool toned that the warm gold just seems so out of place.
I find it annoying, knowing that Dior are (were) perfectly able to make stellar eyeshadows, and now are making very mediocre ones. I get that they will sell, as people will buy, just because it’s Dior, and makeup along with perfume are what many can afford now that accessories like wallets, scarves and the like are so much more expensive compared to what they used to be. I mean they were always expensive, but luxuary brands have really upped their prices.
(I just read an article about this yesterday.)
