Grand Bal (539)

Dior Grand Bal (539) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, neutral color story that included two more gold-hued shades with a sparkling taupe and peach, which had a deep, almost cool-toned matte to round out the color scheme. The first shade was more sparkly and had a bit of fallout, while the second shade was more powdery (to the point of being a little dry), while the remaining three shades were excellent.

Grand Bal #1

Grand Bal #1 is a light gold with strong, warm undertones and fine, gold sparkle woven through a more metallic finish. It actually seemed like micro-glitter to me based on the depth of the particles, but I didn’t see any plastic (PET) glitter listed in the ingredients. The texture was smooth, dense and not overly thick, so it had some binder in it that helped to keep the sparkles from disappearing (in my brush or as a result of fallout).

It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. It lasted well for eight and a half hours but had light fallout over time.

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).

Grand Bal #2

Grand Bal #2 is a light, yellowish beige base with pink-to-gold shifting sparkle over a satin finish. It had medium color coverage (though it may be hard to tell based on the photo as it is close to my skin tone) in a single layer, which could be intensified if applied with a fingertip.

The consistency was lightly powdery, slightly chalky as it was on the drier side. There were signs of fading present after seven and a half hours of wear.

Grand Bal #3

Grand Bal #3 is a blackened brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. There was a touch of sheen to the finish, but it didn’t seem overtly shimmery to my eye.

The texture was soft, finely-milled, and almost velvety with more substance but was still blendable when applied to bare skin. It had rich color payoff that stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Grand Bal #4

Grand Bal #4 is a light-medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic finish. The texture was moderately dense, lightly creamy, and very smooth to the touch.

It picked up well with a dry brush and deposited excellent pigmentation in a single layer that adhered evenly to my skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Grand Bal #5

Grand Bal #5 is a brighter, medium gold with moderate, warm yellow undertones and a smooth, metallic finish. It had intense pigmentation in a single pass, which applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color.

The consistency was lightly creamy, dense but not stiff or too thick, and was easy to pick up and to apply on bare skin. This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.
