Toile de Jouy (429)
Dior Toile de Jouy (429) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette is a new(er) warmer neutral color story that included a mix of finishes that ranged from matte to sparkle. This palette suffered from a general powderiness/dryness across the board compared to most of the brand’s eyeshadows. Most shades had semi-opaque or better coverage, and they were blendable, but they absolutely required a primer underneath and likely would sing for someone who tends to prefer a softer/sheerer effect.
Toile de Jouy #1
Toile de Jouy #1 is a light peach with warmer, more golden undertones and pink-to-orange shifting pearl. It had mostly opaque color coverage, which was buildable to full coverage. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too firmly nor too softly-pressed into the pan. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading.
Toile de Jouy #2
Toile de Jouy #2 is a very light, peachy beige with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. The texture was slightly more powdery in its base, but it seemed to have decent adherence despite that, which helped the larger flecks of sparkle stay on the lid rather than all fall away. There was still a fair amount of fallout, though, so I’d recommend using it with a dampened brush or a fingertip to press it into the skin better. It had semi-opaque coverage that lasted decently for seven hours on me.
Toile de Jouy #3
Toile de Jouy #3 is a darker peach with muted, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had a soft, lightly powdery consistency, but it was very blendable and seemed to “melt” slightly when applied to bare skin. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that stayed on well for seven and a half hours.
Toile de Jouy #4
Toile de Jouy #4 is a darker, reddish-coral with a satin finish. It had opaque color payoff paired with a soft, smooth consistency that was slightly firmer in the pan but picked up well with a dry brush and blended out without difficulty. This shade wore nicely for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.
Toile de Jouy #5
Toile de Jouy #5 is a medium taupe-brown with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow felt soft, finely-milled, and was very blendable, but there was light powderiness and a touch of fallout if I wasn’t careful. The pigmentation was semi-opaque and buildable, and it lasted well for seven and a half hours on me.
