Dior 5 Colors Designer Eyeshadow Palette in 708 Amber Design Review and Swatches

(0.15oz./4.4g - 59USD) I love how Dior makes these luxurious and convenient packagings. It's not bulky, it won't take unnecessary space plus it has a mirror inside. Comes with 2 double ended applicators, 3 ends have sponge tip and one of them has an eyeliner brush.
First shade on top left is amazing, one of my favorite brown eyeshadow ever. It has a velvety smooth texture, not powdery at all, blends seamlessly.  It has warm brown pearls even micro shimmers in it on a brown base.
Second shade on top right has a consistency that's very different than regular eyeshadows, it's something in between cream and powder eyeshadow. It has a very very sheer base color, almost invisible with a ton of champagne colored shimmers and glitters. It's better to use it with the sponge tip applicator otherwise it's hard to build up.
Third shade in the middle has a lot of pigmentation. Pale yellow gold with pale orange hue. It's a metallic shade.
Fourth shade on bottom left is almost as creamy as the second shade. It leans towards to sheer side. Pale gold and champagne shimmers on an ivory base.
Last but not least fifth shade is a blackened brown eyeliner. It's not comparable to MAC's or Bobbi Brown's gel liners but still it's usable. A bit dry, a bit sheer.
