Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette 753 Mitzah Swatch and Review

Mitzah Bricard is famous for her love of turbans, stilettos, pearls and most of all, panther print. The influential figure of the House of Dior is loved and remembered with another limited edition eyeshadow palette, 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette 753 Mitzah. With the colors of the jungle, the design of a ferocious beast, otherwise known as panther skin, this palette is the representation of Mitzah’s wild cat love.

Ditching the regular navy blue and silver packaging, Mitzah palette is all about black and gold. Apparently this palette is very special.

Here’s a background history about how the look came about:

“An enchanting muse, Mitzah Bricard was an influential figure in the creation of the House of Dior. Setting the standard for elegance, she was an empress of style, whose audacious nature and lust for life continuously influenced Christian Dior. The signature elements of her look, such as the color lilac and notably, the famous jungle panther print, have become emblematic of Dior.”

Inside the palette is an eye opener, there is a booklet that gives instructions on how to use the palette to achieve looks!

And there’s something even more special about this palette, well hidden inside the little velvety pouch is a panther skin design. Did you notice that?

The outside of the palette’s case is the same uniformed design as the other cases with the traditional Dior look.

Once the palette has been opened, it comes with 2 brushes and 5 colors with “C D” smack-dab in the middle. Instead of the signature cannage pattern, Mitzah palette has panther prints embossed on each of the 4 colors giving off a very unique look.

A description of the palette can be found on Sephora stating:

“This fashion-forward palette features five eye shadows in brown and beige tones embossed and designed with Dior’s signature jungle print. The compact comes beautifully packaged in a black velour pouch lined with Dior’s panther pattern for an extra touch of luxury.”

Here is a quick look at the palette in the sun. Notice the jungle prints being very visible? I think that is also like a panther when exposed to the sun he is seen very clearly as oppose to be camouflaged in the jungle. The rest of the other images are close up looks for you to see at different angles.

Before you yell, “Panther!” it is only a swatch of the colors on my arm. I won’t bite… really… The colors seems very jungle orientated giving off colors just like that of a panther. You have the contrast between the Ebonys and the Camels. The pigmentation is really nice as well. It is as smooth as silk, glide on effortlessly.

In sunlight obviously it is seen with more clarity, the fine shimmers are really sophisticated yet dimensional.

Here’s a breakdown of the 5 shades, starting from upper left.

Dior’s Mitzah palette is a limited edition palette, I think it’s one that should be grabbed off the shelf before it’s all gone! If you didn’t get the numbered Mitzah palette seen here then this would actually be beneficial because it has the colors of that palette but it’s a compact that when used you won’t feel bad for. You get 5 colors for even lower price tag, though you sacrifice the luxurious collector’s edition metal packaging and jungle print on it. The pigmentation on this palette along with its shimmers are really versatile and highly wearable, because it’s so easy to use. Just a little swipe goes a long way…

Have you gotten a panther?

    This palette is much more too my liking, I would use this palette over their $90 one. That one is a waste if being used.

      The other one is more towards a collectors edition whereas this one is more for everyday. Hence the price difference alone.

    I haven’t purchased any Dior for a while…. And I would have gotten this at an impulse had I not so many similar colors in my stash already. They aren’t dupes, but then they are similar. And I know a Dior is a Dior. Can’t really compare the touch and feel and quality of their eyeshadows to other brands….

    And this is so pretty!

    I shall see if I can find it at the Dior counter in my local Debenhams.

    Super pretty, but I already have these colours! Thanks for the swatches!

      Jamilla you simply have too much makeup! This palette just came out too!!!

    It is very beautifull, but too warm for me. I’ll skip it.

    Only if the palette’s design had some black dots on them. It would so look like panther skin.

    • admin September 23, 2011 at 9:22 PM

      The black dots is pretty innovative idea, brings us one step closer to the Mitzah panther palette.

    I checked out the eyeliners in the store and found this palette as well. I instantly picked one up because of the design.

    • admin September 23, 2011 at 9:24 PM

      The eyeliners are unique and the brows too! This palette was something out of the ordinary with it’s design as well.

  7. Emily September 21, 2011 at 6:25 PM

    Thank you for swatching this. I was wondering how it looked since it was a bit expensive.

    • admin September 23, 2011 at 9:24 PM

      No problem.

  8. eMickey September 21, 2011 at 8:42 PM

    I never knew there was panther prints in the interior of the pouch. That is a really hidden place for a design.

    • admin September 23, 2011 at 9:25 PM

      I didn’t know either until I was putting the palette back and found it quite odd.
