Dior 5 Couleurs - Attract (867) Summer 2017 Limited Edition

I hadn't looked at Dior makeup in a while, but my heart skipped a beat when I first saw the image of 5 Couleurs Attract (867) from the Summer 2017 collection (Care & Dare). At the same time, I knew that this warm-hued eyeshadow palette wouldn't be the best choice for my complexion that stays quite pale and neutral all year round. But "the heart wants what it wants", right? I ordered mine sight unseen from Nordstrom.

Dior eyeshadow quint is dear to me in many ways. It was the first high-end makeup that I ever owned. I still keep a few vintage ones in my collection. I remember Dior 5 Couleurs being magical in both quality and color composition back then. In the recent years alongside several reformulations though, the iconic Dior quint seemed lackluster to me. I was hoping that Attract would be reminiscent of those glorious classic ones I loved, and it did not disappoint!

Dior 5 Couleurs Attract (867) is stunning. In reality, Attract is a rose gold/burgundy bronze palette. Even without the pink accent color, it is still quite pink and even reddish.

All colors are gorgeous, saturated, and they blend so nicely to a long lasting finish. Dior Attract checks off everything I'd want from a couture makeup. The accent pink is almost matte but looks creamy and lustrous. There are two satiny shades (light pale pink & medium bronze) and two metallic ones (peachy gold & burgundy). 


Here are a few overall looks with Dior 5 Couleurs Attract (867).

Dior suggests two different looks - using the top 3 colors or the bottom 3, which is basically same as having two trios in one palette. In this look, however, I applied 4 shades except for the accent color aiming for warm peachy bronze eyes. I actually patted the pink very lightly on the cheeks (I used a fluffy eyeshadow brush).

Here I am wearing all 5 colors. The accent color was used in the middle space of the lids as well as on the lower lashlines over a medium brown eyeliner. Instead of a blush, I applied a champagne gold highlighter (Illamasqua Beyond Powder OMG ) all over and finished with muted pink lips. 


The palette would be perfectly amazing on warmer tanned skin tones (as it's intended), but it just doesn't look very summery on me. I think I look even paler for some reason, but the finished look is quite striking and works well with bright pink or red lips. I see myself continue to enjoy the palette into the colder months as well. 

Dior 5 Couleurs Attract (867) is very much in line with the current warm eye makeup craze, but it allows me to enjoy this personally-color-crashing trend a lot easier than the other ones I experimented with. If warm eyeshadows with complexity are what you crave for the season, do give it a try.

    1. I usually skip summer collections but couldn't on this one. I would love to see your rendition. I imagine you can create similar looks with your modern renaissance palette. :)

  3. It's funny that you thought this might not work for your since your complexion is pale and neutral because in my mind that's like one of those ideal skintones that can pull off a range of both warm and cool shades :D This palette is gorgeous and I can definitely see why it caught your eye ;p But more than that it wears beautifully on you Lena and I'm sure it will any time of the year ^_^

    1. Your comment is encouraging! Maybe I should be more open-minded about makeup colors from now on. It is true that my complexion is changing in tone as I age. Also, I'm learning that it is all about the color balance. This quint is really gorgeous and great quality. There are a few more looks that I want to try with it. :)

    1. Thanks, Lily! I'm loving warm reddish shades more and more myself. That pink is actually warmer and has some red in it (a rose in reality) so it is quite wearable. Would love to hear about your thoughts on the collection soon!
