I feel like I can’t whip my hair around without my ponytail striking another new makeup/beauty must-have product.
But there are those things that withstand the test of time, ya know, like black liners, red lipsticks and brown eye shadows, to name a few.
And speaking of brown shadows, here’s one that may be worthy of your affections, especially if you like a little with your shadow.
It’s Dior’s cool, new $29 Diorshow Mono in Panama (haha, I almost typed “Panem,” Hunger Games moment!).
No, really, it’s cool, color temperature-wise. A satiny brown with microscopic flecks of secret shimmer that glimmer in direct sunlight, it’s also cool in that when you apply it and buff for a bit, the blackened base shows through.
I like the way it looks on its own. Great for chocolaty daytime smokey eyes, but add a soft pink, ladylike lipstick and blush, and it turns into pure perfection!
Panama should have no trouble at all transitioning from winter to spring and summer. Pat it on your lids, sweep a high-shine bronze or gold into the crease, and pair it up with coral cheeks and lips. Gawgeous!
It’s one of eight Diorshow Monos, a new line of recently-released Dior eye shadow singles, and it does tip the scales toward expensive at $29 for a 0.07-ounce pan, but the rich, long-lasting pigment (lasts all day for me) and grains as fine as powdered sugar should help cushion the budget blow.
