Dior was my
first ever high end brand I purchased from years ago, and that’s where my
addiction to high end make up began. I remember going to school feeling so good
knowing I was wearing such luxury (and expensive!) products on my face. A few
weeks ago I was at a Dior stand in a Tunisian airport when I saw this glittery
pot of heaven shining on display and I knew I needed it. I like to justify it
by the fact it was in duty free and cheaper than the UK, haha!
I got the
shade 281 Cosmos which I’d describe as a dark blue with
light blue, aqua, and green shimmers in. It’s opaque after a couple of swipes,
and can be applied lightly for a light shimmer. I love using this all over my
lid with heavy winged liner and a nude lip keeping all attention to the eyes.
The texture of the Fusion Mono shadow is like butter, it’s so smooth and unlike any other product I’ve tried before. I find it so easy to apply. I’ve found my fingers the best to apply this as a brush doesn’t pick up as much pigmentation. The packaging is another bonus for me, the glass jar looks so sleek and modern. You also get a lot more product so it helps justify the price.
The lasting power of this really surprised me, to be honest I wasn’t expecting it to last all day. So I applied my usual primer (Urban Decay Primer Potion) and applied this around 10am. I looked at my make up throughout the day and it was really lasting, when I took my make up off around 7pm this literally looked the same as it did when I first applied it! I was really surprised.
I’m really happy with this purchase, I can’t wait to add more to my collection. If you’re looking for an investment eyeshadow this is the one!
