Dior eye Reviver eyeshadow palette review & swatches

Dior Eye Reviver is hands down my favourite small neutral eyeshadow palette. Not only does it come in a super-handy, super classy silver compact with a full-size mirror and 2 double-ended usable brushes/applicators, but also the four beautifully cool-toned, taupey neutrals are complemented with a base shade and a cream liner, which make the palette complete. Needless to say that I absolutely adore the logo embossed on the eyeshadows themselves.

The shade on the right is a transparent powder with ever so slight shimmer, which makes the eyeshadows blend like a dream. I use it on a daily basis in conjunction with all eyeshadows which are hard to blend and it makes such a difference.
Next up is a cool-toned light gold shade, which makes a perfect inner corner highlight.
Number 3 is the least favourite of mine as there's a khaki undertone to it. Don't get me wrong, it's beautiful, but khaki tones just don't go well with my skin tone.
Shade no.4 is a rosy-toned taupe, which is just stunning.
No 5 is a dark, cool-toned brown.
And finally, the liner. It's the same product that you get in Dior Designer eyeshadow palettes. It goes on smoothly, you can create both thin and smudgy lines with it. This liner doesn't set, but never transfers onto my upper lid. It can also be set with one of the eyeshadows to create multiple looks.

All eyeshadows are shimmery in a quiet and subtle way. Their pigmentation isn't dramatic, but this is the main merit of this palette. They serve to create effotless daytime looks within minutes. All shades go together perfectly well, they blend like a dream and can be built up for more intensity. I really enjoy  this no-brainer palette and the simple, classy looks I achieve with it. 

1. Self sufficiency: The palette definitely is self-sufficient.
 2. Variety of shades: Even though we get here a nice selection of neutrals, they're not terribly diverse.
3. Variety of finishes: All eyeshadows are shimmers.
4. Variety of looks is very, very limited. This is a palette that will offer you a basic, office-friendly look. 
5. Pigmentation is great, all products are highly pigmented.
6. Uniqueness: This palette is unique in terms of  the colour selection. Almost all of them are cool-toned taupes and there's also a black eyeliner. The base shade has the most unique formula and is probably the best eyeshadow of this type I've ever used.
7. Performance: These eyeshadows are some of the best eyeshadows I've got. They're pigmented, creamy, blend like a dream with miminum fallout and last from dusk to dawn. The eyeliner is an excellent addition to the set of eyeshadows.  
8. Packaging is to die for. The compact is luxurious, stylish and pretty, yet easy to carry around in a handbag as it's not much bigger than a blush or powder compact. The brushes are small, but they actually do work.
9. Availability: Sephora, Douglas, online 
10. Value for money: This palette isn't cheap by any means, but it's a great value for money, considering what you get.
