Cosmic Eyes (359)

Dior Cosmic Eyes (359) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition gold-themed color story accented by a dark, smoky taupe and a matte black hue. The eyeshadows performed well; they were pigmented, blendable, and easy to work with overall.

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).
