Dior Hypnotique (881) Fusion Mono Eyeshadow
Dior Hypnotique (881) Fusion Mono Eyeshadow

Dior Hypnotique (881) Fusion Mono Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a smoky, plummy brown with multi-colored micro-shimmer and subtle saprkle. It has warm undertones and a frosted finish. In a single pass, it was mostly opaque, and from there, it can be layered once more for full opacity or sheered out for a wash of color.
Disney Rococo is warmer, lighter. NARS Calabria is brighter, purpler. MAC Black Slip is less sparkly. MAC Frozen Violet is similar. MAC Round Midnight is purpler. L’Oreal Smoldering Purple is purp,er cooler-toned. Illamasqua Queen of the Night is lighter. Chanel Variation #4 is warmer, lighter. See comparison swatches.

Millenium (381) Fusion Mono Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a blackened brown with bronze and pewter shimmer and sparkle with light warm undertones. It almost looks like taupe to me, but it is slightly warmer–not quite gray enough. It had 95% opaque color payoff in a single stroke, and it could be sheered out for semi-sheer color if desired. I thought it was like Aventure at a glance, but this is warmer. MAC Pastelluxe #5 is lighter. NARS Grand Palais #1 is lighter. MAC Hazy Day is also a bit lighter. MAC Antique Diamond is much lighter. MAC Silver Birch is more golden. MAC Modern Pewter is grayer, more golden. See comparison swatches.

The texture is a hybrid between gel and mousse, so it has a squishy, pliable texture that’s lighter than a cream but functions much like one. It glides onto the lid easily, spreads and blends well, and can be softened or intensified as desired. It remains blendable for about thirty seconds, and then it sets and stays set without creasing for awhile. With both of these shades, I had no issues with creasing for fourteen hours; there was very slight fading and slight (but noticeable if I was looking for it) fall out after ten hours of wear–without a primer. With a primer, the fading was kept at bay, and the fall out was further minimized but there were still a few stray sparkles towards the end of wear. (For a more in-depth review of the formula overall, please see this post.)

If you’ve tried Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadows, these are very similar, but there were two major differences: the first was that the sparkle in Dior’s seemed even finer, so it had more of a dazzling, sparkling effect; and the second was that Dior’s contain 0.22 oz. (and cost $30), as compared to Chanel’s, which contained 0.14 oz. (and cost $36). They are similar in texture to MAC Electric Cool and Buxom Stay-There.

  1. I really love those and completely agree with your review. You get more product with your money and it is almost better than Illusion d’Ombre. Some said these are very sheer and they prefer “rich pigmentation of Chanel” (actually a big blog) which made me confused until I tried these myself. Shades are pretty and quality is awesome.

    Have you applied it wet on your lids?

  2. Oooh what a smoldering look, love it! :-)

  3. Millennium is gorgeous!

  4. Cat G

    I like Millenium!

  5. Cassandra

    JUST FOUND A SUPER AFFORDABLE DUPE! It’s almost exact in texture as well! ELF Super Lustrous Eyeshadow in Gala!

  6. Beautiful! These shades look so wonderfully complex — I love the subtle blue and gold reflects in Millenium.

  7. Kay

    Hi Christine, How would you compare the color of Dior’s Hypnotique to Chanel’s Illusorie? It looks like Hypnotique has more brown in it vs. the silver that Chanel has (want to know if they are different enough to get both)

    Thanks so much for all your hard work!

  8. HautePJ

    Argggh! Why did you have to review these lovelies? At least I have a Nordies note to get one of them! I’m guessing Hypnotique is more brown than Chanel Illusiore?

  9. Jen

    Wow, the texture of these sounds so interesting and the shades are stunning! Can’t wait to check them out in-person! xo

  10. Wow! Are these permanent additions to Dior’s line? I am loving these shades, and may need to carefully budget over time! Haha.

  11. Bianca

    So…where do we buy these?!

  12. I LOVE the look of these! So many taupes, neutrals and mauvey, stormy colours. These are the types of shades I felt were missing from Chanel and Armani’s (I LOVED Smokey Copper, their Eyes to Kill #24, but unfortunately I can’t get one at the moment due to illness and it isn’t a permanent shade) ranges – there were so many completely cool reds and blacks and statement colors, but nothing I could see myself wearing every day. I’m almost certain I’ll find something to suit me among these!

  13. How similar would you say that Millenium is to MAC’s Antique Gold glitter/Genuine Treasure paintpot?

    • The texture/shimmer size is totally different between those two and this, so the effect will be different – Dior is more opaque. It also seems less warm-toned!

  14. millenium looks so lovely. need that color!

  15. Malia

    I just tried these in Sephora, they are gorgeous!! Here they are almost $40 though :(

  16. carla shibayama

    I love this site…..looks gorgeous for the holidays…..

  17. I am IN LOVE with Millenium! Does anyone know how it compares to RMS Magnetic? I prefer chemical-free products when I can. However, Millenium looks to be a worthy exception.
