Atelier Dore (469)
Dior Atelier Dore (469) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition neutral palette for the holiday season. It features three more pearly eyeshadows, one more metallic eyeshadow in the center, and one deeper matte. The quad had some contrast, given the matte was quite dark, and I felt like the undertones flowed together without being too much the same. The quality was good across the board with pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable eyeshadows.
Atelier Dore #1
Atelier Dore #1 is a light, golden brown with muted, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, slightly denser texture that was firm without being stiff to work with, so there was no powderiness but a moderate hand was best for getting an even layer of product onto a brush. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.
Atelier Dore #2
Atelier Dore #2 is a medium gold with warmer undertones and a pearly sheen. It had mostly opaque, buildable color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended well, though it lost some sheen as I blended it out. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being powdery, though it was slightly thin. It stayed on nicely for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.
Atelier Dore #3
Atelier Dore #3 is a bright, light-medium yellowy gold with moderate, warm undertones paired with a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation where the sparkles really helped to fill in the “coverage” as it didn’t look so sheer once applied and blended out on my eye. The texture was lightly emollient, which helped to minimize fallout during application as well as during wear, though there was slight fallout over an eight-hour wear period.
Atelier Dore #4
Atelier Dore #4 is a deep taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, blendable consistency that was moderately dense without being stiff or difficult to pick up. This shade lasted well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
Atelier Dore #5
Atelier Dore #5 is a deep, reddish-brown with neutral undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, a smidgen powdery in the pan, but it blended out well and was easy to use as it wasn’t prone to fallout or sheering out. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.
