Black Night (089)

Dior Black Night (089) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette featuring a very deep, dark color story. Two of the shades could have been easier to blend out above the crease area; they just lacked the base to really get blown out (though the matte black did that well), but they had the kind of texture that worked really well for over the lid area or for more defined placement. The eyeshadows were pigmented and long-wearing overall.

Black Night #1

Black Night #1 is a deep, cool-toned black base with finer, bluish-gray shimmer throughout. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out fairly well, but I wasn’t able to get a completely diffused edge due to the shimmer in it as that seemed to ensure the edge also looked more ragged than blown out.

The texture was soft, smooth, and slightly dense but had a touch of powderiness in the pan but no discernible fallout during application. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

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).

Black Night #5

Black Night #5 is a deep black with neutral undertones and a mostly matte finish. The consistency was smooth, slightly firm and dense but not to the point of being stiff, so there was no powderiness, which ensured greater precision and control when working with it.

This was especially helpful as it had intense pigmentation in a single layer. The eyeshadow lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.
