Dior Pareo (644) Mono Eyeshadow
Dior Pareo (644) Mono Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.07 oz.) is tangerine orange with a subtle golden shimmer. It’s just bright enough to be a bolder shade, but it’s muted enough that it isn’t a neon orange. Dior Aurora #5 is darker, more shimmery. MAC Fresh Daily is a touch more copper. Milani Orange Primary Runway Eyes is more shimmery. NARS Ramatuelle is darker and more muted.
The eyeshadow had good color payoff, and while the texture was soft and finely-milled, it was noticeably powdery both in the pan and applied. It’s really vital that you remember to lightly tap your brush against your forearm or over the pan to minimize fall out during application. The color is also better patted on, rather than swept, and though pigmented, has a tendency to blend out very, very quickly. I like applying it, then working the rest of the colors into the look, and then going back to add more color and blend it with the rest of the shades. When I wore it, Pareo lasted seven hours but was noticeably faded after eight hours (no primer).
