Dior Chimere (821) Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow
Dior Chimere (821) Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow

Dior Chimere (821) Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a dirty peach with pink and gold shimmer and a frosted, slightly metallic finish. It had mostly opaque color in one layer, but two layers made it fully opaque. It could also be sheered out for a wash of shimmer. Too Faced Ringleader is lighter, warmer. Aveda Bare Bellis is more matte. theBalm Stubborn is less metallic. theBalm Third Eye Blinded is less pink. Maybelline Inked in Pink is pinker, lighter. MAC Jete is similar. Giorgio Armani #7 is slightly pinker. See comparison swatches.

Meteore (661) Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a warm, shimmering copper with a sparkling, metallic finish. It is opaque when applied in a single layer, but the consistency is lightly creamy and blendable, so a sheerer wash of color can be achieved if desired. LORAC Garnet is less shimmery. Guerlain Cuivre Ora is slightly more orange. NARS Isolde #2 is browner. MAC Faux Gold has a redder tone. MAC Antiqued has a redder tone and is darker. See comparison swatches.

The consistency of both shades was in line with other shades I’ve reviewed (see my original review). It had a spongy texture that was between gel and mousse, which applied and felt like a cream on the lid but set and wore like a powder eyeshadow. Both shades wore without fading or creasing for twelve hours, without a primer, but there was some fall out that was only slightly noticeable after nine hours of wear but somewhat noticeable after twelve hours of wear. With a primer, the fall out is lessened. The shimmer in this formula is very, very fine, so the fall out is less noticeable than it would be with a larger particle size (like glitter).

  1. Wow. Could this color be any prettier? Absolutely GORGEOUS

  2. Gosh..all of these have been really outstanding! The etoile shade really brightens the inner corner here.. fabulous!

  3. Both look so pretty together, the eye look is really stunning.

  4. Meteore is gorgeous! I would love to wear it with a bronzy brown eyeliner.

    The look you created is simple yet flattering!!! The shadows or gorgeous!!! Btw, would you say Chimere is somewhat similar to Mac All that Glitters??

    Gosh, both of these are lovely! So shimmery, but totally wearable. I could see myself wearing Meteore on a regular basis for sure :)

  7. Both of these are insanely gorgeous!

    I really like Chimere. It’s the sort of thing that could be worn with anything and therefore more worth the price. I’m debating on whether Meteore is too similar to GA ETK in 28 to be worth owning both.

  9. Meteore is absolutely stunning! Perfect summer and fall color for sure! I love the look by the way, such a simple but stunning combination!

    I think the peachy pink shade would be great as a highlight shade.

  11. Krissy

    How does Dior Chimere compare to Chanel Illusion d’ombre in Emerveille?

  12. Dawn

    Could you describe how you applied the eyeshadow in the last photo? It’s such a pretty look!!

  13. G

    Are these at all similar to Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows?

  14. Sally Gannett

    Regarding the Dior fusion mono eyeshadows – do they differ from the Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadows?
