Dior has been on a bit of a roll in recent times. This April sees them reformulating the Addict lipgloss, adding more Addict Extreme lipsticks and earlier this year, they quietly reformulated their mono eyeshadows. Now, stop for a moment and BREATHE! Settled?
Ok, the mono eyeshadows. I had some of the old Dior mono shadows. I don’t know if anyone remembers them. One of the earliest was in a trapezoid shape, slightly raised from the pan. It reminded me of chocolate. You know those little bars of chocolate wrapped in colourful paper that you get in Quality Street multimix packs? No? Ok, you need to get yourself a Quality Street bag of choccies after this ok? 😉
They changed the monos after that into an oval shape pan. I didn’t have any from that but it was also because I didn’t like it. I didn’t like the oval pan in a square case. Screwed with my geometrics 😛
The next incarnation came about as a rectangle pan with the cannage pattern embossed on it. I think I have one from then but it was too glittery so I never actually really used it.
Am I talking to myself here? Does anyone remember all these incarnations of the Dior mono eyeshadows? 😛 Well, nevermind if you don’t remember, because here is the newest design – a square pan with the Dior ‘logomania’ logo imprinted on it. This Dior logo is the one used on all the Dior canvas bags and whilst not as modern as I’d imagine it to be, is quintessentially Dior. Based on my observation there are 3 formula that can be used wet and dry, and I have here, 3 colours to show you, and to tell you what I think about them and also to show you how they look worn together. A bit of ground to cover so settle back 🙂
