Dior DiorShow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow
Dior DiorShow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow

Dior Reveuse (271) DiorShow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow ($31.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a blackened navy blue with lighter blue and navy blue shimmer and sparkle. It had semi-sheer coverage, which did not build up and was difficult to blend out for an even layer of coverage. The texture felt comparable to other shades in the formula, but the intensity was lacking. Where a lighter shade might be more useful, darker shades like these look patchy and splotchy when they are so sheer. This would be best used patted over a stronger base color. It wore well for eight hours with very little fall out. Apparently, this shade was released in 2014, and it didn’t even register as familiar (perhaps because it was disappointing then and now). It is actually quite different from the original, because this one didn’t flake away and had a much cooler undertone, but it was very sheer instead. MAC No Taboos (LE, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Parisienne #2 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Estee Lauder Violet Underground #5 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Bluebird (P, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Dior Infinity (751) DiorShow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow ($31.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a light, golden brown with warm undertones and a sparkly, multi-colored shimmer finish. It had good color coverage, which was mostly opaque and built up to full coverage with just a little more product layered on top (not even a full second layer). The consistency was smooth, lightly emollient but not truly wet or slick to the touch, and blended out easily. It could easily be worn as a sheer wash of color for a bit of shimmer or as a full coverage eyeshadow. It wore well for nine hours on me. MAC Permanent Press #2 (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). NARS Lucid Dream (LE, $28.00) is cooler (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Cold Copper (09) (P, $39.00) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (90% similar).

Dior Fahrenheit (781) DiorShow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow ($31.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a deep brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and warmer sparkles in lighter gold and rusty brown. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was best applied as a more opaque product (two layers), as it looked somewhat patchy and uneven when sheered out. While the underlying color didn’t crease or fade over a nine-hour period, I had some noticeable fall out. Too Faced Hot Fudge (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Steampunk (P, $6.00) is cooler, less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Barlust (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

MAC Seasonally Cool (LE, $32.50) is warmer, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Olympe (871) DiorShow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow ($31.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a dark plum with warmer undertones and a sparkling, violet finish. It had decent color payoff, though it was not opaque, and it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The issue I had with it was how dry it appeared on the skin, despite the texture feeling spongy, lightly creamy, and smooth to the touch–there was no indication from the texture itself that it was going to look dragged out and uneven around the edges, like a drier product might. It lasted for nine hours before fading on me, and I did not notice any fall out. bareMinerals Passion (P) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Cle de Peau Golden Lace #1 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Rare Find (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Uncut (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar).

Formula Overview

Dior DiorShow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow ($31.00 for 0.22 oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing, cream-based eyeshadow with “brilliant colour.” The wear well on me, easily for eight hours and up to ten hours, and have a sponge-like consistency that doesn’t feel to wet but is not a powder either. The texture is thin, lightweight, and blendable on the skin, but the pigmentation can vary a lot from shade to shade with more recent releases tending to lean sheerer.

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

For an in-depth look at what the formula is supposed to do and how it performs generally, please check the overview below the rating. Creme Caramel had buildable coverage from medium to fully opaque. The texture was smooth, velvety, and just creamy enough not to tug on the skin or lips when applied directly from the tube but was a bit less emollient compared to about half the range. It worked best as a cream blush when I tested it, as it emphasized and sunk into lip lines when worn as a lip product and creased like crazy as a cream eyeshadow.

On the cheeks, the color blended out beautifully on the skin, and it was easy to spread out the color without becoming uneven or patchy. I found it equally easy to apply on bare skin as well as over (liquid) foundation. The texture didn’t fully dry down, so it had a natural, skin-like sheen, but I didn’t have issues with it moving or settling over time. It wore well for eight and a half hours as a cream blush.

On the lips, it applied fairly evenly, though it wasn’t quite as even as the majority of the range. The texture, while comfortable, settled into lip lines early on and worsened over the four and a half hours the color lasted. It felt smooth going on, and it didn’t tug. The formula wasn’t drying nor was it hydrating.

On the eyes, the color applied well and blended out nicely with smooth, even coverage. The problem I had with it was how quickly it creased and pulled into lines on my lid, and while it did not seem to dry down, it also looked a little dry where it had creased (almost powdery).

Please note, the rating is an average across performance on eyes, cheeks, and lips.

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

For an in-depth look at what the formula is supposed to do and how it performs generally, please check the overview below the rating. Cashew felt a little more emollient than the majority of the range, though it was still denser and thicker than the average cream eyeshadow or blush product. It was easy to apply and smooth out the color on the face, so it worked particularly well as a cheek color but wasn’t as spectacular as a lip or eye product, as it sunk into lines. The pigmentation was buildable from semi-sheer to fully opaque coverage.

On the cheeks, it performed well, as the color blended and diffused with ease and sat well on the skin without emphasizing my skin’s texture. I could easily use fingertips or brushes to apply and work with the product on my cheeks. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on my skin as a blush.

On the lips, while it felt comfortable to wear, the more emollient consistency enabled the product to sink into lip lines noticeably from the very beginning. I could not keep the color from settling into lip lines when applied directly to lips, but I expect that a lip liner or lip primer will certainly mitigate some of that. It lasted for four and a half hours but had more color gather into lip lines as it wore on.

On the eyes, I had no trouble applying, laying down color, or blending out the edges, but it just never dried down, which resulted in quick creasing (within five minutes!). I would try to smooth and blend out the color again, but it would just wind up right back into any line I had on my lids (not just the natural crease).

Please note, the rating is an average across performance on eyes, cheeks, and lips.

Bite Beauty Honeywheat Multistick ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. Viseart Bronze #2 (P) is less glossy (90% similar). Colour Pop Bronze Me (LE, $8.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Earth (LE, $24.00) is more muted, lighter (90% similar). Becca Sweet Pea (P, $32.00) is less glossy, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Tansy (P, $6.00) is cooler, darker (85% similar). NARS Cappadoce (P, $39.00) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). Chanel Destiny (61) (DC, $38.00) is brighter, lighter (85% similar). NARS Vientiane (P, $39.00) is brighter, lighter (80% similar). NARS Altai (P, $39.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

For an in-depth look at what the formula is supposed to do and how it performs generally, please check the overview below the rating. Honeywheat had a lightly creamy, almost velvety texture that didn’t feel dry or powdery but was a bit thicker and moderately dense. It definitely had less slip than traditional cream blush formulas. My experience with this shade proved that it wore best as a blush, next as a lip color, and worst as an eyeshadow.

As a cheek color, the product worked well, and I had no complaints. It blended out beautifully across bare skin or over foundation and while it did not dry down fully, it did not migrate or more around during the day either. The finish was forgiving and didn’t emphasize pores but looked natural and skin-like. This shade lasted for nine hours on my cheeks.

As a lip color, it applied well from the tube and yielded opaque, even color. The texture felt a bit creamy, medium in weight, and comfortable to wear, even though it wasn’t a hydrating formula overall. I was able to wear this sahde for almost five hours.

As an eye color, it was easy to spread and diffuse on the lid with fingertips or synthetic brushes, but I just couldn’t get it to set, so there was very little staying power. I noticed faint signs of creasing within twenty minutes of application, and it was definitely creasing after forty-five minutes.

Please note, the rating is an average across performance on eyes, cheeks, and lips.

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

For an in-depth look at what the formula is supposed to do and how it performs generally, please check the overview below the rating. Blondie worked best as a blush, where it blended out nicely and lasted well, but it was more problematic as a lip and eye color, where it pulled into lines and had a shorter wear time.

As a cream blush, it delivered buildable, blendable color that was easy to work with and spread across the skin. I could apply with fingertips or brushes, and both types of tools worked well. It lasted for just over eight and a half hours on me as a blush. I do expect that this will be more suitable for fairer complexions as it just barely shows up on my skin tone once I blend it out, unless you’re of light-medium to medium complexion and want something subtle and warming.

As a lipstick, this was one of the more unflattering shades applied to the lips, even though the texture did not feel that different from other shades, as it looked drier, emphasized lip lines, and sunk into those same lip lines on me. I felt like the texture felt a bit drier, more powdery, on my lips, and the wear was shorter (not entirely unexpected, as it is one of the lighter shades) at four hours. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

As a cream eyeshadow, it actually looked similar on the eye as it did on lips: it pulled into my fine lines and creases with ease and looked somewhat dry applied. The color itself blends in with my natural skin tone, so the creasing wasn’t as noticeable from a normal viewing distance, but it was definitely there within five minutes of application.

Please note, the rating is an average across performance on eyes, cheeks, and lips.

For an in-depth look at what the formula is supposed to do and how it performs generally, please check the overview below the rating. Macaroon was fairly creamy, light-to-medium in weight, and smooth on the skin and lips. The color spread easily across the skin and blended out well on eyes, lips, and cheeks. It worked best as a cheek color, then as a lip color, and was worst as an eye color. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-sheer to fully opaque depending on application method.

On the cheeks, the color blended effortlessly without losing its color or tone. The texture was smooth and sat well on the skin with a soft, natural finish. While the product didn’t dry down fully (so it would transfer if you touched it), it didn’t move or migrate on the skin and lasted well for nine hours on me. On the lips, it didn’t tug or drag on the lips, but I had some color emphasize lip lines as some color pulled into them. It lasted for four and a half hours on the lips and was neither drying nor hydrating. On the eyes, I experienced creasing within minutes of applying the color, as the formula did not set or dry down.

Please note, the rating is an average across performance on eyes, cheeks, and lips.
