Diorshow Fusion Monos - My Little Fall Obsession
I’ve loved these “bouncy” cream shadows ever since Chanel first came out with them, and Dior as well as Lancôme have come out with their own versions as well, though the formulas differ slightly. (If not for the fact that they all cost so much, I’d collect a lot more…)
As it’s really tough to capture all the multi-colored hues, I took slightly off-focus images above just so you can see the colors of the sparkles.
The 3 shades I own from the Diorshow Fusion Mono line are:
- Méteorite: bronze-beige with tan and gold sparks
- Aventure: charcoal with silver sparks and vague hints of pale pink and aqua
- Cosmos: charcoal with navy, teal, and blue sparks
The main reason for my obsession is that they’re different from regular cream shadows in a few ways.
They tend to have a lot more sparkle and dimension because of the way they are formulated. You’ll seldom find them in flat, monochrome colors.
Unlike sparkly cream shadows from brands like MAC (check Dangerous Cuvée if you don’t know what I mean) they don’t go on patchy and flaky.
They will dry up and shrink in their jars, like regular cream shadows, but the difference is the textures stay smooth even after they dry out quite a bit. Dried out MACs and Maybellines are horrible to use.
They look great worn alone, and their dimensional quality gives the effect of having multiple colors expertly blended on the eye, when you’re really only wearing one. In fact, it’s always a shame to cover them up with powder shadows because they are so dimensional.
I still love MAC and Maybelline’s matte cream shadows as bases, but when it comes to shimmer and sparkle (and an eye that takes 2 minutes to throw on), bouncy is the way to go!
