As much as I love Dior, I can’t believe I never tried the Diorshow Mono Eyeshadows before now!
I mean, I haven’t been totally living under a rock, because I do have an eyeshadow palette or two, and I LOVE the sparkly Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadows. And I’m also a fan of Dior foundations and brow products, and these nail polishes look amazing, so I really have no excuse for not trying them sooner.
This spring Dior released nine new shades of their $29.50 Diorshow eyeshadow, and here are four of my favorites from the line: Gallery, a soft champagne gold with a satin/shimmer finish; Minimalism, a grayish taupe with a satin finish; Atmosphere, a cool-toned purple with a satin finish; and Power, a rich plum with a satin finish.
Here are two sets of swatches in different lighting:
These eyeshadows look pretty standard in their pans, but get them on your skin in the sun? Wow! They’re more complex than they seem, and there’s a really pretty (but subtle) shimmer running throughout. I think they’re great if you like matte shadows but want ones that won’t look so flat. I’m really surprised by how beautiful these eyeshadows are. If you’ve wondered about them, definitely take a look in a store! I don’t think that pictures online can do them justice.
Oh, and since we’re talking about Dior, how do you feel about Diorshow mascara? I remember when it first came out years ago, and EVERYONE was obsessed. I since moved on to Too Faced Better Than Sex, but then I heard that Dior recently reformulated Diorshow, enriching it with microfibers for that false lash effect. They came out earlier this spring in four limited edition shades — Pro Mahogany #778, Pro Magenta #868, Pro Navy #288 and Pro Anthracite #088. Here’s a look at Pro Navy and Pro Anthracite.
Both of them give you more of a subtle effect, with Anthracite being an off-black color that’s great if you want a natural eye look, whereas Pro Navy is a really pretty navy that shows up well in sunlight, but the color’s less noticeable in other types of light.
I love the wand they come with because it applies without clumping, but I can’t say that I’ve been blown away by the new formula. It definitely darkens my lashes and keeps them separated, but I don’t notice any major lengthening. I don’t know… Maybe I’ll change my mind after a few more uses.
Here I’m wearing Diorshow Mono Eyeshadow in Minimalism over my lids, and Atmosphere along my lower lash line. And then that’s Diorshow Mascara in Pro Navy gracing my lashes.
For the rest of my makeup, I’m wearing Pur Hydrafluid Water Serum Foundation in Tan with a little Dior Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation in 040 for extra coverage // Becca Luminous Blush in Foxglove (review + swatches coming soon) // Colourpop Cosmetics Ultra Satin Lip in Spritz (review + swatches in this post) topped with NARS lipgloss in Tiber in the bottom picture.
Do you like the Diorshow Mono Eyeshadows, and have you tried the new Diorshow Mascara? I’d love to here your thoughts!
