Diorshow Mono Mordoré 653 and Gris Montaige 047

Affiliate Links        

Dior released four single shadows as a Nordstrom Exclusive with the fall collection. These are new in the US, although available in other countries (see swatches on Front Row Beauty). I picked up two of the shades Mordoré 653 and Gris Montaigne 047 ($29 each for 2.2g/0.07 oz, Nordstrom.com). Both are in the Diorshow Mono formula which has allows either a wet or dry application. This was my first time trying these shadows even though the formula was released months ago with other shades.


Mordoré 653 is a beautiful warm bronze metallic. It has a lovely shimmery finish to it. On me it pulls very warm but not red. Swatched on the arms it looks identical to Armani Eyes to Kill #5, but Dior Mordoré is easier to wear with less yellow/orange and slightly more bronze. The pigment is very rich but smooth and easy to layer. Blending with this color is easy - some coppers and warm bronzes blend out to look reddish or yellowy on the skin, this one stays true to color.


Gris Montaigne 047 is a classic metallic grey silver. There is a blend of different kinds of silvery shades which prevent it from looking too metallic or foiled on the skin. Silvers can be hard for me to pull off - this one has enough grey to not turn blue on the eyes. I could not find a dupe for this one.

In the US you can find both Dior Mordoré and Gris Montaigne at Nordstrom and Nordstrom.com. I'm new to the Diorshow Mono formula but so far am pleased with the two shades I tried. Are there any other colors you've fallen in love with that I need to try?

  1. These are the two that I own! Gris Montaigne has a bit of a green sheen on me though, I suppose it's my olive undertone playing a trick!

  6. I didn't realize these were release in the U.S., so I'm very happy to see this post. Another color I wish they'd sell in the U.S. is Spencer.

  9. I'm really loving Mordore, that is a shade that I would wear and wear all the time ^^. I already have quite some bronze eyeshadows but if I ever need a new one I might consider this one.
