Party in Colours (007)
Dior Party in Colours (007) High Fidelity Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition holiday palette that features five shimmery shades: emerald green, pink-plum, pewter, bright gold, and rich cobalt blue.
Four of the five shades had excellent pigmentation, while one was more medium and buildable in coverage. The texture felt more of the gel-powder hybrids, so they seemed like they could easily be used with a dampened brush if desired, though it only improved the performance for one shade (the one with weaker coverage) but wasn’t necessary with the other four shades.
Party in Colours #1
Party in Colours #1 is a rich, emerald green with subtle, warm undertones and a bright, emerald shimmer and sparkle over a metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was moderately dense and more firmly-pressed in the palette, but it yielded easily to a brush so I was able to pick up color evenly.
The eyeshadow applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of product that lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.
Party in Colours #2
Party in Colours #2 is a brighter, medium pinky-plum with subtle, warm undertones and cooler pink and violet micro-sparkle and shimmer that gave it a metallic finish. The texture was smooth to the touch, dense without being too stiff or too firmly pressed into the pan, so it played well with dry brushes.
The color payoff was opaque applied dry as well as with a dampened brush with the finish being a bit shinier with the latter application technique. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before I noticed a touch of fading.
Party in Colours #3
Party in Colours #3 is a medium, golden pewter with warmer undertones and a shiny, sparkling finish. The consistency felt more sparkly and a touch drier compared to the other shades, and it was seen through the pigmentation; it had medium, buidlable coverage dry and intense, opaque coverage applied with a dampened brush. The color wore well for eight hours on me before I noticed slight fading.
Party in Colours #4
Party in Colours #4 is a bright, medium gold with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented, while the texture was smooth, creamy without being too firmly pressed into the pan, so the powder played well with dry brushes (the coverage was the same regardless of wet or dry use!). It lasted well for eight and a half hours before showing signs of wear.
Party in Colours #5
Party in Colours #5 is a rich, cobalt blue with strong, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque pigmentation applied dry as well as with a dampened brush, though it deepened slightly with the latter application method.
The texture was slightly firmer in the pan compared to the other four shades in the palette, though by no means stiff or too firmly pressed into the pan. The eyeshadow applied evenly and blended out fairly well along the edges. This shade stayed on well for eight hours on me before creasing faintly.
