| Review | Dior Heat Up 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette 

Dior has been killing it lately with their launches! Especially when it comes to their limited edition palettes, their designs, colors, and formulas have been quickly coveted!  As soon as I saw this nuetral palette, I feel in love! 

The Dior Heat Up (597) 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette retails for $63.00 USD and is available at Nordstrom and other retailers. As soon as I saw this ripple design in beautiful warm neutral tones, I was sold! I had regretted many times not getting the previous limited edition palettes and I wasn't going to be haunted by this one too! The shadows are encased in Dior's classic navy compact but it is the ripple embossing that is so irresistible! It looks like a ripple of water when something drops into a pool of water, very appropriate for summer. 


Gold - This gold has a good pigmentation and is true gold shade. Not too warm and amber, not too light and cool, just gold. That being said, it is probably the least unique color of the palette, but you can't have a summer palette without a gold shadow right? Also, my problem with having this gold shade and the light bronze shade is that they are quite similar. The light bronze is very much a golden bronze on the eyes, making these two shades interchangeable.

Champagne - This champagne shade is disappointingly sheer. It appears the champagne base is completely invisible on the eyes and only the gold and pink shimmer actually appears on the eyes. It is more of a super fine gold shimmer top coat, which can be very pretty but over the other shadows, it doesn't have much of an effect. Alone, the shadow offers a sheer fine wash of gold shimmers across the lids. This is great for a look that may not be eye-focused but you want just a touch of shimmer. Honestly, this shade is kind of a dud while it looks incredible in the pan. You will see the swatches that it's nearly invisible on my skin and I had applied several layers of this shade.

Orange - This shade has the driest texture but is also the most pigmented shade in the palette, which I am very pleased with! This color doesn't seem to be a wet/dry formula like the others, it feels very much like a regular pressed shadow but it builds very well to full opacity. It has very fine golden shimmer throughout it but it isn't as noticeable when you blend the shade but offers a subtle golden reflect to tie the shade in with the rest of the palette. One tap into the product and you get a lot of color and it makes for a stunning crease shade! I think this color is what makes the palette unique and pulls the whole look together.

Light Bronze - This light bronze shade has a good pigmentation and applies evenly and opaque on the eyes. It has a very strong golden tone, which I stated earlier makes the shade similar to the gold. I would have liked to see a bit more contrast but overall, I really love this shade. I am always down for a bronze shadow for summer.

Deep Bronze - This shade has a good pigmentation and can be built to full opacity. The deep bronze offers a lot of depth to the lighter colors in the palette and blends very easily. This shadow really anchors this whole palette down by adding depth and a little bit of cool contrast so that it isn't overly warm.

Overall, this is a beautiful and wearable summer palette. Would I recommend it? No, the champagne shade is a complete dud and has no pigmentation! The colors are pretty common and can be found just about everywhere.With all the beautiful new releases coming out, your money would be better spent elsewhere, however; I don't regret purchasing this palette. I know I will use it often because I wear these shades daily. The orange shade is by far the most unique and my personal favorite shade in the palette! I think this palette pairs beautifully with some of the coral Dior Addict Lip Plumps, I purchased and reviewed here.
