Today we are going to take a look at the last two pieces I have from Dior Trianon collection, *Songe Diorshow Fusion Mono Matte and *Minauderie Dior Addict Gloss. Most of you might already know the sparkling Diorshow Fusion Monos, so how does this matte version fare? Dior Songe Diorshow Fusion Mono Matte (721) is housed in a glass pot. It contains a generous amount of 6,5 grams (0.22 oz). Songe is a very nude beige. I would say it is mostly matte, but when you look closely, you can still see a bit of a sheen. It applies smoothly, and it is mostly opaque. On its own, it lasts well for 8-9 hours on me. Over a primer, it could easily go all day. However, do note that applying Songe over a primer could make it look a tiny little “powdery” in a way, although it shouldn’t be a problem if you plan to follow up with pressed eyeshadows. Here is how Songe swatches. Left: built up. Right: sheered out. The interesting thing about Songe is it changes the color and finish of the eyeshadows you layer on top. Layered over Songe, anything shimmer takes on a satiny finish instead. I think it might be very useful if you own a bunch of shimmery shadows but need something a bit more toned-down for the work place. Here you see Songe on my eyes on its own: Just to show you how the finish changes, I did the same eye look with Dior Favorite Trianon Makeup Palette over Songe. As a reminder, this is how the eyeshadows look on their own: Here is how it turns out over Songe: Can you see just how much more toned-down the shimmer becomes? Last but not least, we have Dior Minauderie Dior Addict Gloss. Dior Minauderie Dior Addict Gloss (382) is an antique pink with a lot of sparkle. If you enjoy sheerer glosses with a lot of shimmer, you have come to the right place! Minauderie feels as smooth as other Dior Addict Glosses I have tried, although on its own the color doesn’t show up too well on my pigmented lips. It is comfortable and hydrating throughout the 4-hour wear time. Minauderie built-up/one pass: Here is a lip swatch of Minauderie: You have seen it “in context” here: Does Songe or Minauderie speak to you?
