I picked up the Diorshow Fusion Mono shortly after trying their Dior 5 Couleurs Bonne Etoile quint, which were both part of the Mystic Metallics collection released late last year. It was love at first swatch and even though I own a number of different eyeshadow in similar colour and finish (comparison swatches below), I am an incorrigible taupe addict and I’m generally not guided by logic when it comes to buying taupe eyeshadows.
Btw I just noticed that Dizzy has photobombed my Millenium product shot on that first photo! Cheeky cat.
Diorshow Fusion Mono in Millenium is a grey taupe with fine silver and golden shimmer. Depending on the lighting, it can take on a cooler khaki tone, or lean towards a warmer golden grey. It has medium pigmentation which is buildable. Compared with my Benefit Skinny Jeans – Millenium is a similar colour but is more shimmery than metallic, it is less green than the Shu Uemura Olive ME 471, and is warmer/less silvery compared with Lancome Erika F. It has a texture similar to the Chanel Illusion Ombre shadows- a springy gel/mousse texture which is quite easy to blend.
Lasting power and crease resistance is good, lasting most of the day before slight fading is noticable (I always use an eyeshadow primer, so generally nothing gets tested without my TFSI)
I’m very sad to report that I have lost my Dior Fusion Mono in Millenium somewhere in my travels around Australia in the last couple of months. I may repurchase this, but I do cringe at paying twice for the same product given the price tag.
Keep reading after the jump!
