dior 1 colour eye gloss in zenith


Today we’re having a look at another product from the pretty Bird Of Paradise collection. Now this one is very unexpected. When I received it I was a bit like ‘hmm, looks amazing but what do I do with it?’. Now let me tell you that the 1 Colour Eye Gloss is a new thing for me, I never tried them before because the words ‘eye gloss’ slightly worry me in all honesty. I will assure you that I was worried about nothing because this little baby is amazing!

The 1 Colour Eye Glosses are not part of the permanent line but you do see them often popping up in the limited editions. In the Bird Of Paradise collection we see two versions: Golden Sand and Zenith. They both come in something that reminds me of a lip gloss tube, it contains 6 ml of product and it goes for 28.10 euro. The applicator looks like one of a lip gloss, it’s doe footed and it makes the application of the eye gloss really easy. It claims to be water resistant but I would’t really go take a swim with it. These 1 Colour Eye Glosses are very creamy, almost liquid. They contain a huge amount of shimmer and give the most amazing sparkle.

Zenith 740 is a warm copper shade loaded with all kinds of shimmer, ranging from gold to warmer gold to copper  and even red. The shimmers are very fine and there is a lot of it. If you put on one swipe of it you get quite some coverage and you will see the copper base quite strongly When blended out it looks a lot sheerer and wearable, but still with a whole lot of shimmer. The formula is really good for a product like this. It could go horribly wrong and a crease-y mess but it’s not if you use it wisely. Thin layers are key here otherwise you get creasing within an hous. It applies very creamy and smooth but it dries down fairly quickly. Another big plus is that it applies very evenly, I think Dior did a perfect job on this formula! If you use an eye lid primer and use thin layers you will not have a problem with creasing.

So I tried Zenith the second I got it, I was intrigued by the idea and I just wanted to see how it worked. First I used this on it’s own (I was at my parent’s and walked around with one coppery shimmery eye and nobody moved, hah!) without a primer in a thin layer. This really exceeded all my expectations because it did not crease at all, even after half a day! Now Zenith is pretty warm with the copper tone going on, so this is not wearable for everyone. On me it looked already really warm so I needed to maker this a bit more wearable. And I found a great purpose for Zenith too! I actually noticed that the eye gloss is amazing for layering purposes. In the look that I’m wearing I layered it over a pretty forest green shade and look at what it does! It turns into a beautiful antique golden green now and the effect is just incredibly intense! Trust me when I say that in real life the effect is so much prettier, the golden sparkles contrast beautifully with the green and the copper turns the green into a golden green. You can also layer this over any other gold, brown shade, maybe even other shades, it’s amazing!

The way I use it is to first apply the eye shadow like usual. Then you dab three little dots on your eye lid and you gently pat it over the eye lid. This way you will not get an uneven finish or anything. Also you need to pat it to a nice thin layer and you will not experience any creasing. Do not worry about all that shimmer, it does not travel around, it sticks nice to the base. Overall this is a great product if you use it right. You will have a lot of fun with the layering, it adds an insane amount of gorgeous shimmer! Great for any evening look!

  2. Yes. I NEED the liquid eye colour after all. I have the two from last summer and LOVE them. I was hoping in reality I wouldn’t love the colours as much as the promo pics. I was WRONG.

  3. This layering idea is so smart, and I have to say that the result is beautiful. Now I really need to get my hands on this.

  4. Gorgeous! Why does everything just ‘work’ for you :-) the green is amazing! I would love to try these. They remind me of the Laura Mercier metallic eye colors.

  5. I love this! Dior eye glosses wear very well on me too. I like to apply a thin layer, then build it up by applying another thin layer. I sometimes use it as a base and it works great too :-)

  6. I am jealous over everyone liking/who can use those eye glosses, the Dior ones were the worst I’ve tried on me, lol :D I love their colour stories so much but idk, sometimes the formulation looks meh on my dry lids :(. The look you did inspired me to layer some colours though, I got a bit bored with makeup, thanks for the inspiration Teri :D Don’t touch my Mosserati looks beautiful! I need a dupe for that, green is my fav colour, when it comes to eye makeup <3

  7. Prachtige kleur vind ik en past ook bij andere oogkleuren dat koper!

  8. Erg mooie look ! Groen laat bruine ogen altijd zo mooi uitkomen vind ik.

  9. Mooie warme kleur! Ook erg mooi gemixt van met van Catrice, goed idee!

  10. Beautiful! Love the green and golden shade together!

  11. heel mooie kleuren :) zou ik zelf ook dragen

  12. Woah, pretty! Such a great idea to layer it. I love it.

  13. This layering idea is so super smart! I don’t think Zenith is a color I can pull off too well on its own, but layered it’s seriously pretty!

  14. Wat een prachtige kleuren. Groen staat je echt zo goed Teri!

  15. it’s beautiful! I had no idea it was so versatile.

  16. I really like their Eye Gloss. They feel so cooling when applied and I love how lightweight they are too. This colour combo looks really gorgeous on you!
