Dior 5 Couleurs Designer 208 Navy Design Palette swatch review

The Dior 5 Couleur Design Palettes* ($63CDN) are going to drop into stores starting in June. 208 Navy Design*  is but one of the options. Here are my general opinions of these palettes.

To recap:
This palettes contain 5 colors, a base, two satin shadows, a shimmery illuminator and a gel liner. they are supposed to be sheer and meant to be layered. Each palette is built around a harmony of one shade in various semi-tones for a color gradient look.

I don't tend to do lid gradients with non-neutral colors so I was apprehensive to try this blue palette. I had to layer on the lighter shades to make them really present but the shadows blend. In the pan, they aren't super buttery or soft and I kicked up a little bit of powder as I placed shadow on my brush. I needed to pat on more than a few layers of te lighter blue shades.

These blues aren't my favorite color combination. I tend to like some neutrals thrown in whenever I use color but the lavender lean makes this shade combination more approachable.
