Dior Sienna (696) Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Sienna (696)

Dior Sienna (696) High Fidelity Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition palette for summer featuring five warm-toned neutrals–all with shimmer–that performed well. I only had some trouble with the first shade, which was sheerer and a bit drier, while the other four shades were pigmented and easy to work with. If you tend to like more pearly finishes–shimmery but not metallic–you may find that this palette up your alley.

Sienna #1

Sienna #1 is a bright pop of peach with strong, warm orange-gold shimmer and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, slightly drier texture but it applied more smoothly to my lid than I expected–it almost seemed to “melt” slightly. The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Sienna #2

Sienna #2 is a bright, pale yellow with soft, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my skin. The consistency was firmer to the touch but not stiff and picked up evenly with a brush. The eyeshadow was easy to work with and blended out well on my lid. It lasted for eight hours before fading a bit.

Sienna #3 is a rich, rusty orange with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The color payoff was opaque in one layer with a smooth, denser consistency that was firm but not stiff to work with. The eyeshadow melted against my skin, which gave it a smoother, shinier finish that was easy to blend out. It wore well for eight hours before fading slightly.

It stayed on nicely for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
