The Details

5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette | $63.00 | Limited Edition

The legendary palette bears the sequin motif inspired by the work of the Haute Couture ateliers. The texture blends into the lids and sculpts the eyes with pearly light and dense ultra-pigmented shadow. A texture that deposits an ultra-pigmented veil with no powdery effect.

  • Smoky Sequins (066)
  • Precious Embroidery (776)

Diorific Lips | $38.00 | Limited Edition

Diorific is housed in a gold Dior collector case, the jewel of the collection. A unique formula in rich shades with a luminous, long-lasting matte finish and perfectly shaped and defined lips to create a captivating, sophisticated look. Apply in a swath of dense magnetic colour, or in touches at the center of the lips.

  • Golden (006)

Diorific Matte Lipstick | $38.00 | Limited Edition

In a limited edition, Diorific reinvents the purest expression of the powdery matte finish for the first time in a fine film that glides on with incredible comfort. An easy-wearing matte whose secret lies in its unique use of an exceptionally soft and velvety micronized silicon powder. The “powdery” silicon smoothes colour with no streaking while striking a subtle balance between hold and comfort. Unlike traditional matte makeup, this formula continuously moisturizes lips without drying them. Finer, sheerer and less opaque, Diorific Matte radiates colour with a subtle velvety finish. From an easy rosewood to the iconic red, along with the flashiest and trendiest corals and pinks, this utterly modern and elegant matte lipstick truly makes a statement and can be worn on any lips.

  • Charm (440)
  • Ravissement (560)
  • Fascination (880)
  • Splendor (950)

Diorshow Mono Eyeshadow | $31.00 | Limited Edition

A weightless texture that blends into the skin and dresses the eye in velvety colour. In a single step, it creates an even and intense matte finish for a professional makeup effect.

  • Infinity (751)

Diorific Vernis | $28.00 | Limited Edition

  • Nova (Top Coat)
  • Golden (328)
  • Splendor (850)
  • Cosmic (899)

Dior Fusion, Temptation, Gravity Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadows

Dior Fusion (764) Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.06 oz.) is a light-medium rosy pink with warm undertones and warmer gold sparkle. It had good pigmentation applied dry (though I also tried it damp, where it was smoother in appearance) and a glittery, but fairly smooth, texture that applied well to bare skin. For as much sparkle is in it, there was only a little bit of fall out after eight hours of wear. I had noticeable creasing after seven hours of wear. MAC Rose (P, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). YSL Paris #4 (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Natasha Denona Golden Rose (60M) (P, $29.00) is lighter (90% similar). Clinique Pink and Plenty (P, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Wildfire (P, $12.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Recharged (P, $22.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). City Color Ladylike (P, $6.99) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Fire, Reflection, Fever Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadows

Dior Fire (584) Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark, bronzy brown with warm undertones and gold sparkle over a pearlized finish. The texture was smooth, but noticeably glittery, with a denser feel so that the glitter melded with the base color and didn’t just disappear upon application. It had good pigmentation and applied well to bare skin without losing intensity. Some of the sparkle separated from the base color as I blended, but it just seemed to move it beyond the initial area I put it but didn’t fall off the lid. This shade lasted for seven hours on me before creasing but had minimal fallout. Colour Pop Nillionaire (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). City Color Sandstorm (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Natasha Denona Sienna (50M) (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Taupe (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Hot Commodity (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Maybelline Downtown Brown (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (90% similar). Benefit Thanks a Latte (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). NARS Shade II (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Mirage (95) (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Zap (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Tarte Crush (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Dior Cosmopolite (P, $29.50) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). LORAC Smokey Topaz (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). theBalm Firm (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC English Gilt (LE, $21.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). bareMinerals Santorini (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). MAC Permanent Press #2 (LE) is less shimmery, lighter, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Fusion (764) Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow

Dior Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.06 oz.) is a new powder eyeshadow formula for fall that is available in six shades. I’ve only seen them on Dior’s website, and I actually picked up one shade (Gravity) from Selfridge’s as it is out of stock on Dior’s website. Initially, I thought they were a wet/dry formula, so I swatched them dry and then damp. They are designed to have a “lustrous finish” with “unprecedented shine.” Full reviews to come, but here are swatches:

Dior Parisian Sky (506) Skyline Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Parisian Sky (506) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition five-pan palette for fall that features a medium brown, warm beige, pale silver, light blue, and brown-burgundy. It’s a so-so palette; workable if you really want to exert the effort, but it’s unlikely to merit paying the price. I think if you use a primer, it is marginally improved but some of the dustiness seemed to eat right through a solid base.

Dior Capital of Light (806) Skyline Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Capital of Light (806) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition five-pan palette for fall. It features a blackened brown, light beige, pink, light brown, and dark plum with varying degrees of shimmer–satin to frost. For a Dior palette, it was better than anticipated, though it isn’t excellent, so I imagine for some the quality at this price point doesn’t make a compelling case. The five shades worked well together, and I can see several looks from this set of shades.
