Dior Early Bird Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Early Bird (659)

Dior Early Bird (659) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for the fall season. All five shades were blendable, long-wearing, and easy to use, while two shades were more semi-opaque and buildable rather than fully opaque. The formula felt like a gel-powder hybrid, so they have a more “baked” quality to them, which can require a slightly heavier hand if one is used to working with more powdery formulas.

Early Bird #1

Early Bird #1 is a bright, light-medium red with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which applied well to my lid and diffused easily along the edges. The eyeshadow was moderately dense without being stiff or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

The formula is supposed to have a “creamy and comfortable texture” that is long-wearing and has “intense color” (or “high-pigment”). There are five finishes that can be found within various palettes: matte, satin, shimmer, metallic, highlighter, and glitter, though there aren’t specific descriptions by finish, unfortunately.

There were a few shades that seemed more sparkly and were sheerer, more like layering shades, while the other finishes tended to be pigmented. In general, the texture was moderately dense with the matte shades being slightly thinner and a smidgen powdery in the pan compared to the satin, shimmer, and metallic shades.

Aside from those more sparkly shades, the formula was blendable, pigmented, easy to work with, and lasted an average of eight hours on me (without a primer).

Early Bird #4

Early Bird #4 is a deep yellow with warm undertones and a satin finish. The texture was smooth, moderately dense, and felt firmer–it required some pushing to get product off the surface, but it applied evenly and blended out particularly well. It had rich color payoff that stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.
