Dior Celeste (121) Fusion Mono Matte Eyeshadow
Dior Celeste (121) Fusion Mono Matte Eyeshadow

As I mentioned in my review for Nocturne and Rosee, Dior released four shades under the Fusion Mono Matte formula for spring. According to Dior, the new formula is “soft” (presumably sheer) when applied with fingertips and then “bold” (presumably pigmented) when using an applicator “to reveal pure matte color.” It’s an interesting formula; it has a much drier feel once applied, but it’s not actually dry. The consistency isn’t quite as emollient as the regular range, but it’s not stiff or difficult to work with. They do not sheer out as readily as the more shimmery shades, though. It almost seems like putty in the jar–you could just shape it however you’d like. If you have any natural dryness on your lid or around your eye area, the texture can be unforgiving and will catch onto some of that dryness. All three wore well for nine hours and had minor fading after ten hours of wear.

Dior Celeste (121) Fusion Mono Matte Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a cool-toned, lavender-pink with a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and it could be sheered out to semi-sheer color if desired. This shade seemed to be the least forgiving if you have any dryness on the lid (I have a little). bareMinerals Velvet Lavender (LE, $14.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Digit (P, $15.00) is lighter. Inglot #346 (P, $6.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

Fantasie (641) Fusion Mono Matte Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pinky-peach with a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage. Of the three, this one didn’t sheer out as easily, though I didn’t have any trouble blending the edges out. Disney by Sephora Sebastian (LE) is very similar but is a powder. MAC Perky (LE, $18.00) is warmer, less pink. MAC Frisco (LE, $15.00) is slightly more beige and a powder. MAC Dear Cupcake (LE, $15.00) is darker, pinker, powder. Inglot #341 (P, $6.00) is more beige, powder. See comparison swatches.

Mirage (761) Fusion Mono Matte Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a neutral-to-warm-toned taupe brown with a matte finish. It had nice, opaque pigmentation and applied evenly. It was able to be sheered out to semi-opaque color coverage. If you’re looking for a cooler-toned version, might I suggest MAC Tailor Grey? (not a dupe!) bareMinerals Head Over Heels (LE) is darker, powder. MAC Smoked Cocoa #2 (LE, $15.00) is slightly grayer, powder. Urban Decay Naked 2 (P, $18.00) is similar, powder. MAC Brains & Brawn (LE, $15.00) is a touch cooler-toned, powder. Bobbi Brown Pale Rose (LE, $29.00) has a pink tinge to it, powder. Bobbi Brown Slate (P, $29.00) is powder. See comparison swatches.

I got Rosee and Fantasie. I adore Rosee, especially when layered over Fantasie. May I ask, are you going to review the YSL spring collection? I would love to know your opinion on the eyeshadow palette.

I like the colors but I don’t know how I feel about the swatches. They look meh. Mirage would make a nice crease color though

Hi!

Unfortunately, Songe doesn’t seem to be available here in the U.S., so I don’t have it and couldn’t tell you how it compares!

Mirage looks so soft and beautiful! It looks like a very forgiving (and useful) shade for the crease – something even I couldn’t screw up, hah! 😀

Celeste reminds me so much of a color in an old (old!) Estée Lauder set from Spring 2001. It was the first year I worked for Lauder and I was so excited to get that set, which I believe was a trio. I will definitely go see it in person.

Celeste is limited edition, but the others should be permanent based on the info that’s being put on Sephora, Nordstrom, etc.!

It seems Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough As Taupe may be a more budget-friendly alternative to Mirage… Still, I’m such a sucker for matte taupe shades to contour the eye, so I am very tempted!

Tough as Taupe is soooo much darker and cooler-toned, I wouldn’t call them dupes other than they’re both “taupe.”

It’s been a couple of months since I wore it, but it was the first thing that came to mind. I don’t remember it being very dark, though. Now I want ! Irage, LOL!

I’m on the fence! I don’t know if I love them personally, lol! I love the sparkly ones but not so sure about these. I think the colors just aren’t up my alley, other than Mirage.
