Review Dior’s new Mono Shadows (& win) Dior has just relaunched its Diorshow Mono Eyeshadow collection with nine, fashion-inspired shades that feature a multitude of effects: matte, satin, glittery and intense lamé. The long-wearing formula glides on lids and remains throughout the day. Yes, this is a new updated formula that provides better wear and more intense pigment. The shadows are buildable so you can wear them in a subtle manner or smoldering and dramatic.
What I like about the new packaging is the lid clicks open so that you can add a couple of drops over the mirror and use the shadow wet for added impact. It’s a clever design upgrade.
You’ll notice there is a direct connection to Dior’s runway fashions. Each shade was created to compliment a catwalk style. From a sophisticated greige to warm butterscotch, the colours are very wearable. And the powder is embossed with the iconic Christian Dior logo.
Here are four of my favourite shades in the collection:
Atmosphere #980 (a blue violet)
Gallery #530 (an uplifting champagne hue)
Power #994 (a deep lavender)
Mineral #573 (a warm butterscotch)
