Dior Etoile (021) Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow
Dior Etoile (021) Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow

Dior Etoile (021) Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pewter–it’s gray and gold mixed together. It’s one of the sheerer shades in the range, and it was buildable to about 90% opacity, but it’s not as pigmented as the other shades. Because it’s a lighter shade, it can still function and work well, and in some cases, looks better when applied as a wash compared to the darker shades in the range–but I think you have to want it and know what you’re getting yourself into. If you like pewter-ish shades, you might try Millenium instead, as it is darker and more pigmented. Guerlain Two Styslih #1 is similar but a powder. Dior Constellation #2 is warmer. MAC Greenluxe #3 is darker, warmer. MAC Palladium is more metallic. MAC Vex is cooler-toned. MAC Arctic Grey is similar but powder. Giorgio Armani #19 is lighter, more frosted. See comparison swatches.

Lune (001) Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a cool-toned, frosted white with a metallic finish. It can almost look silver-toned against my warmer complexion. It is not the starkest white I’ve come across, so it can be more wearable across more skin tones as a result. It was fairly pigmented, and it was buildable to fully opaque color in two layers. It can also be sheered out if desired. Disney Midnight Hour #1 is a powder product but close in color. MAC Fancy Frosting is similar. MAC Angelic is more glittery. MAC The Cool Elite is slightly cooler-toned. Make Up For Ever #4 is also similar–slightly cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Both shades wore consistently as the rest of the formula has–no real fading or creasing, just some minor fall out that happens during wear with a minor amount (but something I could detect if I looked in the mirror) of sparkle underneath the eye after eight hours of wear. For a comparison against other formulas, check out my original review.

  1. Wow – these have been solid performers across the board! I ordered a couple of these this past week..went for a few of the darker smokier colours though.

  2. Sam

    The pigmentation leaves quite a bit to be desired. If they were more pigmented I’d be more tempted, but I don’t think it’s worth the price :/

  3. Dawn

    Gorgeous! I need to get some of these. Do you think white shades like Lune and Make Up For Ever #4 would work well as an inner corner highlight on very pale, neutral skin tones?

  4. Hi Christina,

    I was wondering: did you use an eyeshadow base underneath these mono’s?

    Love from The Netherlands,

    • Hi Brenda,

      I wore the formula with and without primer – these particular ones I only wore without a primer (I wore four or five of the other shades both ways).

  5. I love Etoile! It looks like a great everyday or base shade. I just wish it was a bit more pigmented.

  6. SandraJT

    I picked up One of these in Hypnotique, which is kind of a blackened purple shimmer with multi colored sparks. It’s a formula that can be sheered out or built up quite easily. I find that the shade I got works really well under powder shadows, which is how I usually use it. I prefer using this over the NARS paints I bought.

    I also swatched all of the shades available in this formula & found them all to be quite buildable.
