Dior has introduced a new formula of eyeshadow singles with “maximum color payoff and extreme hold in just one coat”: One-Color Extreme. As I understand it, this new formula is not (yet?) replacing the old “One-Colour” eyeshadow singles (Dior’s U.S. website shows both products; the Italian site shows only the new One-Colour Extremes).
One-Colour Extreme singles are soft, creamy, pigmented, and the shimmers are intensely shimmery. We saw two shades (Argentic and Trendy Taupe) release with Dior’s Fall collection; now 10 more have joined the lineup.
Swatches 10, 3, 4, and 1 (Nude Luminescence, Beige Print, Brown Fever, and Bronzy Night) gave me thrilling flashbacks to Guerlain’s Brun Mordore quad. I’m also a fan of matte, cool, grey-brown Trendy Taupe. I think many of you will be excited by the raven-y black-purple of Ultra Violet.
Crystal White is really shimmery/glittery. When you click on the image to enlarge, I think you’ll see that the swatch isn’t as uniform as the others. Chrome is also very frosty/shimmery.
One-Colour Extreme shadows are $27.50, (up from One-Colour’s $25).
