Let's face it, no Dior Collection is complete without a couple of the brand's iconic 5 Couleur shadow palettes. So for Fall 2015, Dior is introducing two limited edition 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palette ($70 CAD) designed to flatter various skin tones. To see some swatches, click......
Dior Fall 2015 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palette
Packaging:
The 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palette comes in a gorgeous black compact with the Dior logo embedded in silver. The palette is divided into five shades with a mini applicator on either side and the shadows are pressed with the letters of the Dior logo.

Formulation:
Both palettes for the Fall 2015 Collection feature a contrast of cool and warm tones. I am pleasantly surprised by how good the formulation is. Dior's shadows are not always pigmented and buttery but these two palettes are absolutely amazing. Almost every single shade is rich and creamy; the quality is right on par with brands like Urban Decay and Too Faced.

866 Eclectic: 
-White silver shimmer, this shade is sprayed with a thin layer of sparkly silver that wears off after one swatch
-Dark plum with micro silver and pink shimmers, this shade is slightly patchy
-Pale mauve satin
-Dark plummy brown satin, there are some subtle shimmers but they are mostly invisible
-Dark mossy green satin, very soft and buttery

766 Exuberante:

-Soft taupe satin, the texture is absolutely dreamy
-Matte soft peach pink
-Warm metallic brown
-Dark blue with light blue shimmers

Overall:
These are absolutely beautiful palettes. The eyeshadows are usually not what wows me in a Dior Collections but the formulation of these are really impressive! I like that both palettes offer a good range of colors. I do wish that the highlighting shimmers were actual sparkles instead of just sprayed with a layer of sparkles.

Availability:
Dior Fall 2015 Collection is available in stores starting August 2015.
