Dior Bow (887) Mono Eyeshadow
Dior Bow (887) Mono Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright pop of medium-dark pink with subtle blue undertones and a satin-like finish–just a dusting of shimmer. Urban Decay Noise is cooler-toned (more fuchsia) and frosted. Guerlain Terra Azzurra #2 is very nearly the same in color but has more of a matte finish. MAC Tease with Ease is slightly cooler-toned.
It’s not yet released stateside but should be popping up in the next few weeks (several of the more neutral shades are already available). Bow had good color payoff, and the texture was very soft, finely-milled, and smooth. It was a touch powdery, but since the formula can also be applied wet, then dampening the brush prior to applying would help alleviate the slight powderiness. The pigmentation was the same both wet and dry, though it is easier to sheer out when applied dry. On the lid, it blends easily, and it can be sheered out or patted on for more opaque color payoff. When I wore this shade, it lasted for eight hours without creasing, and there was faint signs of fading after nine hours (no primer).
