First Impressions: Dior Grand Bal 5 Couleurs in 524 Night Golds and 764 Fairy Golds


This is my first ever "first impressions" post. As I haven't had time to properly test all of the eyeshadows in the two palettes I can't do a proper in-depth review as I would normally, but I still wanted to get my opinion out there while it's still relevant and it could benefit a few on-the-fence buyers.



As mentioned in my Haul/Spending Ban post I bought both the palettes, I just couldn't help myself! They are similar, but also completely different. My Dior 5 Couleur Palette in 734 Grége is already my favourite eyeshadow palette and the quality of the shadows are amazing. Lasts all day, no to minimal fallout and amazing colour payoff that blends easy.



All I mentioned for the formula of my 734 Grége palette is true for the colours I've tried of these as well; Amazing colour payoff, blends effortlessly and lasts from morning until evening, or even after that. If you know your going out after work, you could apply these in the morning and they would still look as good as new for going out after work!

The only shadow I am a bit disappointed with is the black in the middle of 524 Night Golds. It's a bit chalky and not as black as I would have liked it to be, but I think it will be much more black if used wet. Sometimes it's nicer with a black that is less harsh anyway. My favourite shadow so far has been the top left one in 764 Fairy Golds. It's an amazing neutral shade that leans just slightly warm without being orange at all. It gives a gorgeous natural glow and brightens up my eyes, it's amazing! I've loved pairing it with the warm brown (top left) matte shade in my 734 Grège palette through the crease, for a quick and easy, but still polished and gorgeous everyday look.

I find it hard to review eyeshadows as they don't really do anything but look pretty, and these do. They look gorgeous, they are a breeze to use, the colours are interesting and well thought-out. They also last all day. I don't have a bad word to say about them. Seriously; if you're eyeing these and spending quite a bit of money on an eyeshadow palette (or two!) isn't a big problem, I really really recommend getting them! I haven't had a single thought questioning buying these after I got them. In my honest opinion, when the colours are good; 5 Couleurs are the best eyeshadows there is!

  3. These look very festive! Super shimmery though, it seems like they're more glittery than pigmented with colour. But the Dior palettes are so sophisticated and eye-catching :)

    1. The glitter shadows are definitely sheerer in general and pounds on an heavy amount of glitter, yes, but they are amazing at amping up other shadows. I paired the gold glitter shadow in the Night Golds palette on top of the normal gold one and it looked amazing! A quite sophisticated sparkly which is hard to achieve! :) x

    1. Ohh though one.. Hard tohelp you as I obviously couldn't decide between the two myself.. It depends a bit on your colouring, if you are on the paler side I would go for the Fairy Golds and if you are a bit more tanned then the Night Golds as the golden colours will add warmth to your face :) hope that helped a bit at least! :) x
