Before I knew it, I'd handed over my card and walked away with the shade Millenium. A soft, taupey-grey, it looked perfect for both daytime and evening wear and had an amazing shimmery finish. The formula is similar to their new blushers - not quite a cream, but almost a slightly spongy texture. It comes with a little sponge applicator, which is meant to be used in a gentle patting motion (although I have also just slapped it on with my usual eye brush too and this works pretty much the same).
I've been using the new shadow for just over a week, and I'm really sad to say I'm a little bit disappointed. The colour is lovely, and the texture is great, but that highly shimmery finish just isn't there. It's almost as if it needed the intense lights of the beauty counter to make the most of it.
It's a totally wearable eye shadow and blends beautifully. The wear time is also good and lasts about 8 hours without a primer before any fading happens. It also doesn't crease, which is great for these types of products.
I'm not sad that I bought this as I know the colour is something I will wear regularly, but I am a bit sad that it doesn't quite live up to the shimmery loveliness that I saw in store.
There are 5 different shades in the new collection and each one costs £23.50. I'll be going back for one of the amazing cream blushers, but Dior hasn't quite won me over with the Fusion Monos.
