Dior Gentle Cashmere (669) Eyeshadow Palette Evaluation & Swatches


Soft Cashmere (669)

Dior Soft Cashmere (669) 5 Couleurs Couture eyeshadow palette ($ 65.00 for 0.24 oz.) Is a new taupe color story with four shimmery hues and one matte. Four of the five eyeshadows were richly pigmented, had smooth, blendable textures, and carried well, while one shade (the second) was clean, powdery, and sparkling, causing some dropouts during application and while wearing.

Soft cashmere # 1

Soft cashmere # 1 is a light to medium-sized golden taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation in a single layer that could be completely covered with less than half a layer more. The texture was smooth, dense without being overly firm or stiff, and had a slight creaminess that made it easy to work with and helped it sit well on my skin. It carried well for eight hours before it visibly faded.

Formula overview

– –

The formula is said to have a “creamy and pleasant texture” that lasts for a long time and has “intense color” (or “highly pigmented”). There are five finishes that can be found in different palettes: matte, satin, shimmer, metallic, highlighter, and glitter, although unfortunately there are no specific descriptions by finish.

There were a few shades that were more sparkly and sharper, more like layered tones, while the other surfaces were more pigmented. In general, the texture was moderately dense, with the matte hues being a bit thinner and a bit more powdery in the pan when compared to the satin, shimmer, and metallic hues.

Aside from those more sparkling hues, the formula was mixable, pigmented, easy to work with, and lasted an average of eight hours with me (without a primer).

Soft cashmere # 2

Soft cashmere # 2 has a light pink-beige base with pink and peach colored spots. It had a sharper cover that didn’t build up well. It seemed more like a kind of layer shadow, although I didn’t refer to anything as such. So it’s hard to know whether it was intentional or not. The texture was lightly powdery with a touch of precipitation during application. It lasted seven and a half hours and had slight breakdowns over time.
