DIOR Diorshow Mono Wet & Dry Backstage Eyeshadow Swatches

I scheduled my post for tomorrow, and it’s a skincare product. I never thought I’d be editing pictures on Valentine’s Day night. My hubby was actually nursing a really bad sore throat and flu, so I had my night free. I saw the Dior monos when I was at the mall, and as luck would have it, I had my camera with me! So, I was swatching away like a mad woman. Thank goodness I was friendly with the SAs. She even gave me an eye brush, plenty of tissues and cotton pads, brush cleanser and makeup remover so I could get my stuff done. If you’re in Ipoh, please go to Kinta City to look for Elise and support her. She supported my madness. LOL!



I swatched the colours both wet and dry side by side, and the ones on the left are dry, the ones on the right are wet. I find that some shades are no different wet OR dry, while some perform better wet and surprisingly, some perform better dry. I was sent Blue Denim and Khรดl so you’ll find the swatches of these 2 missing. You’ll just have to wait for my in depth review ๐Ÿ˜› I have a few faves which I marked with a little heart, and I think there are many other shades which are gorgeous. Of course, if they don’t cost an arm and a leg each (RM105), I’d get all of them! OK, no more blabbing, on to the pictures.

These pictures do them no justice. These were taken indoors under low artificial light. The eyeshadows were buttery smooth, and when used wet, some turned metallic, some looked duochrome (some looked no different), you just have to go look for yourself. I will post a review soon enough. Until then, I hope these swatches helped!

Which one are you interested in?

    OMG tweed is so pretty! also loving lilas and choc clair!

    • Tweed is breathtaking! I must have it.

  • I love the exact ones you have marked especially Tweed! It’s gorgeous!! I’m very excited you posted these, I’m going to have o further investigate. But really Tweed is stunning, thank you for the lovely swatches ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I know, Tweed and Garden Party are absolutely beautiful. Choc Clair and Mordore can be duped in a way, but those two are a must have. I will have to get them one day. You must check them out. You’ll fall in love!

  • Falling so hard for Mordore right now.

    • It’s a beautiful bronze and when wet, it’s metallic. I think it’s one of the better ones when applied wet, actually. You have to check it out. You’ll fall even harder!

  • Whoa, I love these so much. I’ve never tried Dior but wow, those shadows are gorgeous!

    • They are! The texture is easy to work with and when wet, they are smooth and gilded. Just beautiful. You have to at least go see them in person ๐Ÿ™‚

  • We’re eyeing a bunch of same colors! I was the most excited about Tweed and the green shades, and I’m glad they’re done right!

    • They sure are done right! I think I’ve pretty much decided to get Tweed… I have to see if I have any dupes for Garden Party ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Thanks for the swatches, I love them! There are already too many shades that I want, especially the neutral ones look gorgeous!

    • I’m glad the swatches helped, Teri! I’m a sucker for neutrals myself. That said, Blue Denim is gorgeous wet.

  • I always see great swatches of products just when I told myself that I shouldn’t be buying anymore beauty products. I’m eyeing 176 and 386.

    • Oh, the purple is really pretty. I hope you like them as much in real life ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Liz

    Mordore is hot. I like that. ๐Ÿ˜€

    And I keep thinking that Bow can be doubled as blush. What do you think, fellow blush fiend???

    • I think Bow COULD be doubled as a blush, but it would be a PITA trying to dip your brush into that little pan :-/
      Mordore is like molten bronze. You gotta try it, dude!

  • I haven’t seen these yet but Garden Party and Gris City certainly catch my eye. The rest less so. Thanks for the swatches.

    • You’re welcome, my dear. Garden Party is gorgeous. A wet Gris City is va va voom!!

  • Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    Mordore looks AWESOME! Nice swatches! I’ll need to check them out when I see them.

    • Right? Gorgeous ๐Ÿ™‚ You have to see them in person to appreciate them even more!

  • I love Sequins! I wonder why I missed that color when I swatch this range at Dior Counter. I need to go back and check out the colors again ๐Ÿ™‚

    • It’s like that sometimes! There are too many beautiful colours at counters and we get sidetracked ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you like Sequins just as much in real life!

  • OMG PAREO. I need it. Partially because I loved the gloss of the same name!

    • LOL! I saw Pareo and immediately thought of you ๐Ÿ™‚
