The Dior Mono Wet and Dry eye shadows are a collection of eye shadows Dior has released around this time last year. With their irresistible embossed “logomania” motif, the single-shade eye shadows who came out of the imaginative spirit of Tyen, Creative Director of Dior Makeup, set the tone for “fashion-forward eyes”.
The colours were released in three groups according to your preferences: natural, playful or sophisticated. The Nude shades create discreet, flawless eyes for perfect no-makeup, natural makeup. Fun, refreshing and trendy Pop variations “play with pigments in vibrant, electric and intense colours”. Smoky shades provide “endless variations of the sublime and seductive eyes” keeping secret the mystery of the woman behind the makeup.
Dior is known for the really pigmented eye shadows and these ones are no exception. Compared to the old Dior singles ( now discontinued ), I think the quality of these new ones is slightly better. The amount of pigmentation is enough for a natural finish when applied dry, but if you want a more intense finish with some extra oomph, it is better to be applied with a damp applicator. They are single eye shadows which feature an unique wet and dry formula for a custom and professional finish. Made with silky, finely-milled and buttery soft powder they provide a delicate hint of shimmer.
This last month, I found myself often reaching for #826 Bikini and #623 Ruban/Ribbon. I think those two work so well together for a fresh Spring look ( click here and here for FOTDs using Bikini and Ruban/Ribbon ). Bikini is a soft pink with some finely mild shimmer. The finish of this one reminds me of MAC’s Veluxe Pearl eye shadow. #623 Rubban/Ribbon is perfect as a highlighter or a brightening wash of colour on your eye lids which according to your skin tone it will look more like a warm pale off-white. It is not as pigmented as Bikini and you don’t have to expect to get the same colour on your eye lids as it is the pan. It is perfect for anyone who is looking for a pearly glowing vanilla shade in a very pretty packaging.
Encased in the signature blue mirrored compact, with the Dior logo embossed, these eye shadows come with two brush applicators. One to use the eye shadow wet and one to use it dry. I, personally don’t use them. I prefer my brushes instead.
One Diorshow contains 2,2 g of product and it is available at Sephora or Douglas and online at feelunique.com.
See you soon, beautiful!
