Dior Copper (439) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette is a new(er), warm-toned palette that included a mix of matte, satin, and shimmer finishes. Four of the five shades were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing, but one shade (#2) was more of a sparkling, top coat, which the brand doesn’t distinguish from the rest. Those who like the effect may find it works for their purposes as that shade is what brought down the overall rating.
Copper #1 is a light-medium, golden bronze with strong, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a soft, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too dense nor too softly-pressed into the pan. It applied evenly and stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
Copper #2 has a transparent base with flecks of white gold and warmer, pale gold sparkle. It worked more as a sparkling top coat or a wash of shimmer/sparkle rather than a standalone eyeshadow, which may be just fine for some and a deal-breaker for others; I wish Dior had more insight into coverage-level for these types of shades. The texture was more powdery than ideal, which resulted in some fallout during application. It lasted decently for seven and a half hours but had some fallout over time. I would definitely use this one with a setting spray or the like to give it better hold.
Copper #3 is a light orange with warmer undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery texture that applied evenly and blended out well. I found it was faster to fade than average, so I’d recommend using it with a primer underneath. It wore well for seven hours before fading visibly.
Copper #4 is a darker, rusty brown with strong, warm orange undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had rich color coverage in a single layer, which adhered well to bare skin and blended out easily. The consistency was smooth, moderately dense but not stiff to work with. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Copper #5 is a darker, taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, lightly powdery texture that had a smidgen of fallout but was mostly controllable. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to my lid and diffused well along the edges without losing its intensity. This shade lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.
