Brace yourselves – an iconic beauty behemoth is relaunching with a bold new look this week. The Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette is getting the ultimate wardrobe update with 11 brand new colour ways in a kaleidoscope of exceptional pigment and texture. And Dior is so pleased with the new look, their entire autumn make-up look for 2014 is dedicated to its sleek beauty.
As well as the 11 new harmonies (3 limited edition), there are five brand new lip colours and four new shades for nails, which celebrate the couturier’s five favourite colours: Trafalgar Red, Bar Grey, Tutu Pink, Pied-de-Poule Black and Carré Bleu. It’s the ultimate all-seasons wardrobe.
Dior introduced the 5 Couleurs palette as we know it back in 1987. For its 2014 reinvention Dior looks to the catwalk, re imagining eyeshadow harmonies as though they were different fabrics. Velvet, leather, taffeta, silk and wet-look materials are translated as intense mattes, soft satins, exceptional iridescents and dazzling glimmers, each one glowing with avant garde charm.
The new-look Dior 5 Couleurs is presented in a slimmer case than before, making it a little lighter and perfect for travel. Open it up to reveal a large mirror, your five beautifully embossed eyeshadows, and two double-ended applicators that allow you to apply, blend and line like a pro.
