Dior Fire (584) Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow

Dior Fire (584) Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark, bronzy brown with warm undertones and gold sparkle over a pearlized finish. The texture was smooth, but noticeably glittery, with a denser feel so that the glitter melded with the base color and didn’t just disappear upon application. It had good pigmentation and applied well to bare skin without losing intensity. Some of the sparkle separated from the base color as I blended, but it just seemed to move it beyond the initial area I put it but didn’t fall off the lid. This shade lasted for seven hours on me before creasing but had minimal fallout. Colour Pop Nillionaire (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). City Color Sandstorm (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). bareMinerals Hot Commodity (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Dior Reflection (684) Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.06 oz.) is a dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was smoother than some of the other shades, but it still had a ton of glittery bits, which you can feel if you touch it with your fingertip. It had a denser, creamier consistency, though, which worked well to keep the sparkles and base color combined. It was intensely pigmented, applied and blended well, and lasted for six and a half hours before creasing (but fallout was quite minimal!). Stila Smoldering Satin (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Aloha (LE, $32.50) is cooler (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Genie (LE, $9.99) is darker (90% similar).

Dior Fever (794) Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish plum with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. The texture was slightly drier than the other two shades, but it still held together fairly well when blended and worked with on the skin–I had a little more fallout during application, though. This shade had great pigmentation, but when I blended it, some of the color looked patchy underneath the glitter/sparkle. I was able to wear the eyesahdow for seven hours before I saw creasing. There was a small amount of fallout after eight hours. Marc Jacobs Beauty Ultraviolet Light (304) (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Not Today (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Cricket (P, $5.00) is more muted (90% similar). MAC Smoky Mauve (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Formula Overview

Dior Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.06 oz.) is supposed to be a metallic, shiny, pigmented powder eyeshadow that will mimic a “wet lid.” The texture was smooth, but I could feel the texture of the glitter and sparkle, as several shades are full of glittery bits. The good news was that the texture is also denser and creamier, which enabled the sparkles and glitters to bind better with the base. I noticed the sparkles would separate from the base when I would diffuse and blend out the edges, but the flecks tended to move rather than fall off the eye. The formula varied from semi-opaque to totally opaque. The eyeshadows wore six to seven hours on me before they started to crease, but I had very minimal fall out over time, though. I didn’t see any mention of using these wet, but I had no issues using it wet as well as dry, for reference (wet application was not considered for purposes of rating the products).

I’m not certain if these are limited edition or permanent, because Dior’s website doesn’t call them out as limited edition (as they did for their fall quints). I’m also not certain about what retailers will get these, because Dior is the only U.S. retailer I’ve seen carrying them, but they are available at a slew of international retailers: Selfridges, Harrods, John Lewis, Escentual, House of Fraser, and David Jones.

Dior Fusion (764) Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow

Dior Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.06 oz.) is a new powder eyeshadow formula for fall that is available in six shades. I’ve only seen them on Dior’s website, and I actually picked up one shade (Gravity) from Selfridge’s as it is out of stock on Dior’s website. Initially, I thought they were a wet/dry formula, so I swatched them dry and then damp. They are designed to have a “lustrous finish” with “unprecedented shine.” Full reviews to come, but here are swatches:

Dior Parisian Sky (506) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Parisian Sky (506) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition five-pan palette for fall that features a medium brown, warm beige, pale silver, light blue, and brown-burgundy. It’s a so-so palette; workable if you really want to exert the effort, but it’s unlikely to merit paying the price. I think if you use a primer, it is marginally improved but some of the dustiness seemed to eat right through a solid base.

Parisian Sky #1 is a medium brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had decent pigmentation with a soft, smooth texture that was just a smidgen dry. The color wore well for seven and a half hours before fading on me. theBalm Epic (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Dior Ambre Nuit #5 (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Eternal Optimist (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Belize (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Undertone (802) (P, $36.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

NARS Look Closer II (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). LORAC Silver Fox (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). NARS Himalia (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Chanel Tisse Rivoli #3 (P, ) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Parisian Sky #2 is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. The texture was lightly dusty, so it was prone to sheering out on the skin. If you want to use it as a lid color, I would recommend using a primer underneath. This shade lasted for seven hours on me. Colour Pop Throttle (P, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Vendome #2 (P, ) is cooler (95% similar). YSL Saharienne #1 (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Urban Decay Bootycall (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Parisian Sky #3 is a light, bluish silver with cool undertones a nd a frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a soft, moderately firm press–it wasn’t hard to use, but it wasn’t as dusty or as dry as the other shades in the palette. I noticed fading after six and a half hours of wear. Guerlain Les Aquas #4 (P, ) is cooler (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D118 Platinum (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Le Metier de Beaute Platinum (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Glacier (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Inglot #447 (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Parisian Sky #4 is a light-medium, sky blue with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was soft, lightly dusty, and prone to sheering out, though it was blendable around the edges. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which didn’t build up for me at all, even over a primer. This shade started to have visible fading after six hours of wear. Dior Blue Garden #3 (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Sky Blue (DC, $16.00)(90% similar). Chanel Promesse #1 (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Dark Energy #2 (LE, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar).

Stila Aquamarine (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Parisian Sky #5 is a deep reddish brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation–the best in the palette–that applied fairly evenly and blended out without too much work, though it could have been easier to diffuse around the edges. The texture wasn’t too soft or too firm, and it sat well on the skin. It wore the longest out of the five shades in the palette at eight hours. Dior Precious Embroidery #4 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Obsessed (P, ) is more shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Busted (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Dior Capital of Light (806) Skyline Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Capital of Light (806) Eyeshadow Palette
Dior Capital of Light (806) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Capital of Light (806) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition five-pan palette for fall. It features a blackened brown, light beige, pink, light brown, and dark plum with varying degrees of shimmer–satin to frost. For a Dior palette, it was better than anticipated, though it isn’t excellent, so I imagine for some the quality at this price point doesn’t make a compelling case. The five shades worked well together, and I can see several looks from this set of shades.

Capital of Light #1 is a dark, blackened brown with gold shimmer that gives it a soft, frosted finish. It had good color payoff with a slightly dry texture, but it applied without too much trouble. The color lasted for seven hours on me before fading noticeably. Tom Ford Beauty Spring 2015 (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D326 Black Bronze (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced Tempting (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Parisienne #6 (LE, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Huntress (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). theBalm Sophisticated (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Capital of Light #2 is a very light beige with neutral-to-cool undertones and a frosted shimmer. It had good pigmentation that applied evenly and was easy to blend out on bare skin. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. LORAC Vanilla (LE, $19.00) is more pigmented, warmer (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Sea Glass (LE, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). theBalm #22 (P, $6.50) is brighter (90% similar). Tarina Tarantino Delightful #1 (P, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Emerald Lust #1 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Capital of Light #3 is a medium pink with warm undertones and a satin sheen. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, while the texture was fairly smooth, a little dry but blendable overall. This shade started to fade noticeably after seven hours of wear. Chanel Tisse Cambon #3 (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Bubbly (P, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Pink Venus (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #4 (P, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Sweetie Pie (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). BH Cosmetics Club Tropicana #21 (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Bloody Mary (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Alien (LE, $19.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Da Bling (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Just Peachy (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Too Faced Kindness is Free (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). Cle de Peau Calm (Left) (P, ) is more muted, warmer (85% similar). Make Up For Ever I808 English Pink (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Pretty Dainty (LE, $23.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Capital of Light #4 is a light-medium golden brown with warm undertones and a soft, frosted sheen. The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable on the skin, while it delivered opaque color payoff. In practice, this was the easiest and best shade in the palette. On me, it wore well for seven and a half hours. theBalm Stand-offish (P, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Gucci Beauty Starlight (P, $37.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarte Dancer & Prancer (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Viseart Gitte (P, ) is darker (90% similar). NARS Dione (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Laura Mercier Topaz (P, ) is darker (85% similar). Smashbox Doe (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Capital of Light #5 is a dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, but it wasn’t the easiest shade to blend out or diffuse the edges of as the texture was slightly dry. Kat Von D Worship (LE, ) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Make Up For Ever S832 Ash Plum (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). theBalm Curvy Cami (P, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar).

According to Dior, the formula is “highly concentrated with illuminating pigments” that gives you a “radiantly luminous complexion.” There’s not a lot to infer either way about pigmentation, but in general, the Diorskin Nude Air products are touted for natural, lighter looks, which tends to be code for sheerer. #001 has medium coverage, which is somewhat buildable, but it is such a close color to my actual skin tone that it’s hard to distinguish coverage when I’ve applied it as a highlighter (as it is blended out)! The texture was firm in the pan, smooth to the touch with a slight dryness on the brush (liked baked and hybrid gel-powder formulas), but it sat on the skin well and did not emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture. I liked it, but it’s very dupable (even within past Dior releases), so whether it’s a must-have or not will depend on your stash. I really think it’s just a re-release of the Nude (002) from earlier this year; it’s at most, slightly more golden than #001. On me, the powder wore well for eight hours.

Dior Intemporalle Blush Palette

Dior Intemporalle Blush

Dior Intemporalle Blush ($65.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a light pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. NARS Myth (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever B206 (P, $23.00) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Peach Dream (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Laura Mercier Sunset (LE, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Fun Ending (LE, $23.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC What I Fancy (LE, $23.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). Milani Berry Rays #1 (P, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D Poe (Light) (P, ) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain Morning Rose (P, $52.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Launch Away (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Burberry Misty (P, $42.00) is darker (85% similar). Estee Lauder Peach Passion (P, $34.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). Chanel Sakura (87) (LE, $45.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Zoeva PK020 (P, ) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s a new, limited edition blush that’s supposed to give a “vibrant veil of coral and fresh pink” color. It seemed to have three colors–a very light ivory, coral, and a light-medium pink with a thin, somewhat chalky feel. There was a general dryness, and it seemed to sit on the surface of the skin without melding with it as well as other Dior blushes/highlighters have in the past. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage. I think it will work best for fairer skin tones, as the white base may turn ashy on deeper skin tones (I did not find it flattering on me, and I am light-medium to medium due to the stronger white base color). It lasted for seven hours on me before fading.
