Look: Diorshow Gris Montaigne Mono

Dior Gris Montaigne FOTD

After seeing how Diorshow Gris Montaigne Mono swatches yesterday, today we’re ready to move on to the look! Just as a heads-up, I’m trying hard to include a look with all the products like what I usually do, but for the moment I have a lot of eyeshadows on my plate. That’s why sometimes I might have to do the look post separately! Hopefully in a while the products on my to-do list will become more balanced again.

You’ll be looking at my eyes creepily close here, but there you go:

Diorshow Gris Montaigne EOTD


First, I applied a layer of Benefit Skinny Jeans Creaseless Cream all over my lids before patting Diorshow Gris Montaigne on the inner half. I also highlighted the inner corners with Gris Montaigne, and used it wet on my lower lash line.

I lined my eyes with Diorshow Art Pen and used two coats of Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara on my lashes. On my cheeks and lips I had Le Métier de Beauté Tenné, and I highlighted the top of my cheekbones and so on with Becca Opal Shimmering Skin Perfector. To not look too washed-out, I finished by lightly dabbing some Guerlain Ballade Rouge Automatique on my lips.

Gris Montaigne is extremely easy to work with. It produces zero fallout, and goes on smooth and pigmented. I like the pretty green reflection it has. It might not look like much in the pan, but give it a swatch: you might just be impressed!

What do you think? Would you check out Gris Montaigne? Do you own anything similar?

    I think this shade compliments your skintone quite well. I only like those monos applied wet, they have nearly no pigmentation otherwise and feel so dry. I am thinking of getting either spencer, tweed or another one, maybe blue or purple? I still haven’t gotten any products from LMdB and I already have a small wish list 😀

    • Sunny

      Thanks so much, Claire! I think it depends on the shade really. The two I have are both pigmented dry and wet. Spencer is a bit of a love at first sight for me as well! And don’t even start talking about LMdB again. I’m STILL thinking about Corinthian (let’s face it: I will eventually own it)!

      • http://aucupariabrumalis.wordpress.com Claire

        Corinthian is so pretty! I am also interested in their lip cremes :O I have to explore this brands for sure, I am getting into Dior more and more, especially this year. so many amazing products are featured this year that I have a dilemma, lol.

        • Sunny

          2012 was a big year for Dior, and I don’t see them slowing down this year! It’s better to have brands launching exciting stuff than brands launching lukewarm stuff in my humble opinion, even though this does result in some very teary moments LOL

    Love the combo with the color you’re wearing in the photos. A nice subtle look for you.

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks girly <3

    no, I don’t think so :)

    • Sunny

      Haha wait to see Mordoré in action this Saturday then! I think you’ll be more into it!

  • L

    i love the tinge of green!very flattering on your skintone as well^^i love dior shadows but the prices are always a little hard to swallow haha

    • Sunny

      Thanks so much, girly! I know what you mean, but try to go for something that you don’t own a lot of, or something that you will use often. As long as I use something often enough I personally consider it money well-spent 😉

    Beautiful! So soft and subtle yet super pretty.

    • Sunny

      Thanks so much, Christa!

    Oh wow, looks amazing on you. Natural with a touch of glam, love it!

    • Sunny

      Thanks girl! Gris Montaigne is definitely a keeper!

    You wear that shade really well, it leans even a bit green on you, lucky you! I’m really loving some of the shades in the new line, so tempting! ^^

    • Sunny

      Haha yeah I think anything that can pull green on me will pull green on me! Hurrah for having a bit of olive in the skin 😉

    So pretty, Sunny! Those colors look really good on you. I was LOL-ing at “creepily close”! :)

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Kristen! It actually is creepily close LOL I don’t think people get that close to my eyes in real life!

  • http://musingonbeauty.blogspot.com Mariella (Musing on Beauty)

    It looks fabulous on you. I am very much afraid that this is the kind of shade I’m always attracted to but that looks utterly *meh* on me. I wonder if I’d be able to try it in store, mmhh…

    • Sunny

      Hey Mariella, you should do that! Try to play with it and figure out how it works the best on you, though on my skin tone Gris Montaigne is not particularly challenging.

  • Kristi C. (@lov2read68)

    Looking at swatches yesterday I thought this would be too shimmery. But on the lid there is just a hint of the shimmer. Very understated glam!

    • Sunny

      Yup it’s actually not too loud at all!

  • Fashionmuffins

    Love this makeup look!!

    • Sunny

      Thanks! Thanks for passing by as well :)

  • http://www.sprinklesonacupcake.com petra

    Waauw, such a pretty color!! And the eyeliner is so pretty (I can’t do it at all)!

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Petra! Trust me, even after doing eyeliner regularly, on some days for the life of me I can’t make it look even! It is kinda tricky!

  • Rose

    You look just lovely! Getting this and Tweed today, as well as a few other things I “need”. (Nars new concealer) 😉

    • Sunny

      YAAAAY I’d love to know if you like them! I need the new NARS concealer too. I’m normally not excited about concealers, but I’m looking for one just like that! Can’t wait for it to become available on UK-based webshops.

    You make me want to buy everything you’ve ever posted! ^___^ What a beautiful eyeshadow. It works so well on you. And the eyeliner makes your eyes stand out =D

    • Sunny

      Haha thanks Jen! This eyeliner is crazy shiny, and I do think my eyes sparkle a bit more with it.

  • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com Catherine (@bcrueltyfree)

    Ooh I like this! There’s a subtle almost slightly transparent quality to it… or maybe it’s just the way it reflects light. Either way, very pretty :)

    • Sunny

      Yes I think it has this translucency. Not in a way that it lacks pigmentation, but maybe it is the way it plays with the light. It’s so much more fun on than in the pan!

    Gris! I need to get my paws on the Mono’s. I havnt come across them yet :-(
    There have some gorgeous shades!

    • Sunny

      Aww I think they are coming out soon in the US too though! Would love to see which shades you end up picking up. I’m sure you’ll pick something exquisite!

      Awww Tracy thank you! Trust me there are definitely things I can’t pull off as well :p
