One of the most raved about products from Dior are their cream eyeshadows. The Dior mono fusion eyeshadows come in a range of shades and are touted to create multi-dimensional light reflecting eyes in a single step. The shade reviewed today is Millenium (381).
An eye shadow with a weightless finish that blends onto the eyelid, dressing it with color and facets of shadow and light.

How it fared:
Millenium is a blackened Khaki olive shade with sparkles. The texture is just as described, a mousse-gel with a cushiony texture. I am in love with the texture of these. They go on smooth and even. The pigmentation isn’t opaque in one go. In other words one can easily play with the intensity. You can go from a sheer wash of color to a completely opaque one. The dimension of the shade as it catches light is really impressive. The mono eyeshades are nice on their own, the easiest route to take on a busy day. As for the sparkles, these do cause some fallout though not alarmingly so. A primer underneath not only prevents fallout during the day but also keeps the color from fading for a very long time. I do not have issues with these creasing on me with or without a primer. With a shade like Millenium I get a wear of around 10+ hours even without a primer.
Overall Verdict: Dior Fusion Mono Eyeshadows are one of the best cream eyeshadow formulas I have come across. Though the sparkles cause slight fallout, a primer more than takes care of the issue. The dimension created when the shadows catches light is gorgeous.
