Dior Fusion Mono Matte Eyeshadow - Celeste Review


I'm a little late to get to this limited edition product from Dior's spring collection. In fact, by the time I found out about it in the blogsphere it was already sold out at Sephora/The Bay near me. Luckily it was still available on thebay.com yay!



It comes with a small brush which I don't find terribly useful as I already have cream eyeshadow brushes that I enjoy using. 
 


This eyeshadow has a very odd texture. It actually isn't really a cream...it feels like a rubber ball (cloest analogy I can think of) in the jar, and transforms to powder finish immediately on contact with skin. When applied with fingers, I barely see the color. It seems to color-correct the brown tint on my lids naturally and gives a brightening effect, but certainly does not look like the cool lavender color in the jar. Even when used with eye primer underneath, the color just doesn't pop when fingers are used to apply.

When applied with a brush, the color is much more pigmented, and can be built up. Currently, I use my fingers to apply on those days I just want to quickly brighten up my lid, and I use a brush when I want some of that lavender color to show. Powder eyeshadows can be easily blended over this.

Overall, great product, and makes me keen to try other shades in the line, but I think all the hype around this got my expectations up too high. 

Have you tried any of the shadows in this line? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

    1. I find that too! I've been wearing it almost everyday. Even though I was expecting more pigmentation at the end of the day probably a sheer wash of lavendar is better than a fully pigmented lavendar for day-to-day work :)
