Company’s Description

An eye shadow with a weightless finish that blends onto the eyelid, dressing it with color and facets of shadow and light. These elegant shadows create multidimensional, light-reflecting eyes in a single step. The mousse-gel texture blends easily with the fingertips or the enclosed applicator to illuminate the eye with an iridescent metallic finish.

Dior’s new eye shadow product comes in 5 shades with a mousse-gel formula to create a metallic finish. This review is for shade #281 Cosmos–a deep, sparkling, denim blue.


Packaging: 8.5/10

This eye shadow comes in a luxurious glass jar with a reflective, steel-colored, twist-off lid. You also get a mini, pointed, sponge-tip applicator. My only criticism of this packaging is that when I first opened it, the eye shadow fell out of the jar because it wasn’t secured inside.

Quality: 8.5/10

I have mixed feelings about this eye shadow.

On one hand, the color looks quite dull when applied under normal circumstances–with a dry brush. This is especially true when it’s applied through the crease. The pigmentation and metallic effect are weak.

On the other hand, if you use a dense, flat brush and apply this in very short strokes on the lid, you get a much more beautiful, pigmented, and shimmery deep blue shade.

I love the color you get when using the second method, and the formula is light-weight on the skin. But I wish this shadow gave a more flattering effect when used through the crease or with a less dense brush.

Without primer applied, this shadow started to gather in the crease after about 3 hours of wear. With primer applied, this shadow went 7 hours without creasing.

Ease of Use: 8/10

This formula doesn’t blend effortlessly when applied through the crease. You need to either use a dense, flat brush in short strokes to get a flattering color, or you can use the sponge applicator after dampening it.

Price: 8.5/10

For $30.00 you get 0.22 ounces of shadow. It’s difficult to compare this product because there aren’t a lot of mousse-gel formula eye shadows out there. Givency’s Ombre À Fleur De Peau Eyeshadow (which has a cream formula) costs $34.00 and contains 0.17 ounces. e.l.f.’s Studio Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow, which has a much closer formula to Dior’s costs $3.00, contains 0.11 ounces, and frankly, out-performs Dior’s shadow on many levels.

    Que decepción que un producto de Dior esté en esas condiciones, debería cuidar más esos detalles.
