Romantic Voyage (749)
Dior Romantic Voyage (749) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette is a new(er), pink and taupe color story that included a mix of finishes that ranged from matte to shimmer. The first two shades were less consistent and sheerer, and they would be easier and better-performing for someone who always uses a primer or tacky base with their eyeshadows. The remaining three shades were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing with a little powderiness overall.
Romantic Voyage #1
Romantic Voyage #1 is a light pink with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff paired with a soft, somewhat powdery texture that worked better over a primer, as it was a little uneven and dusty-appearing when applied on bare skin. It lasted for seven hours before fading visibly.
Romantic Voyage #2
Romantic Voyage #2 has more of a transparent base chocked full of pale champagne sparkle that gave it an almost wet-like finish. The texture was fairly smooth, lightly creamy, and seemed to have a good amount of binder in it as the product applied well to bare skin with minimal fallout, though using a fingertip or a dampened brush would be ideal to work with. It had medium color coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with a second layer. This shade had light fallout after seven and a half hours of wear.
Romantic Voyage #3
Romantic Voyage #3 is a light, plummy taupe with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had rich color coverage with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too firmly nor too loosely-pressed into the pan, so fallout wasn’t an issue but the product picked up well with a dry brush. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Romantic Voyage #4
Romantic Voyage #4 is a darker taupe-brown with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. The eyeshadow had a soft, lightly powdery texture that was blendable and not prone to fallout, so I’d just take care to tap off any excess or go in with a lighter hand initially. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.
Romantic Voyage #5
Romantic Voyage #5 is a soft burgundy with warm, brown undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, silky, and finely-milled but proved lightly powdery with a little fallout during the initial laydown of product. It had mostly opaque, buildable color payoff that lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.
