Dior Mirage (699) Eyeshadow Palette Assessment & Swatches

Mirage (699)

Dior Mirage (699) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow PaletteDior Mirage (699) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that included five shimmery shades in warmer undertones. The palette could have used more contrast to make it a more versatile palette as a standalone color story, and if you’re someone who likes to have matte finishes, you will definitely need to add some in. The quality was nice–pigmented, blendable, easy to use–and the formula felt like a gel-powder, so it worked well dry as well as damp.

Mirage #1

Mirage #1 is a muted, light-medium orange with warm, brownish undertones and flecks of pink and gold shimmer that gave it a pearly sheen. It had opaque color coverage applied dry as well as wet, though the latter yielded a shinier finish. It had a smooth, moderately-dense texture that was easy to pick up and to apply. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

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).

The consistency was moderately-dense, smooth, and blendable without being too firmly-pressed into the pan. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.
