At least, that's what you'd assume, looking at my collection of vampy shades.
|L-R: Dior Galaxie, Dior Shadow*, Chanel Taboo, Butter London La Moss, Butter London Branwen's Feather. They ARE all different, okay?!|
Dior Galaxie is the newest addition. It's similar to Shadow* and Chanel Taboo, but it's slightly redder in the sun and has more of a retro metallic finish. Without a top coat, it has a slightly satin finish. I like it.

In general, I don't have time to change shades very often and wear a mani out through about a week, so I prefer formulas that dry quickly, last long and don't chip or come off in those weird peely layers. Dior does this for me, so I stick with it.
If you find it doesn't last, it's certainly not worth the price tag. For me, I reach for these over and over again because of their reliability, enough so that I don't buy as many other brands any more. Three China Glazes = one Dior, but as I won't wear those other shades as much, this is worth it. If you'd rather have the variety, I'm sure you could find a similar shade at a friendlier cost. This is part of the Fall 2013 collection; I purchased mine from Nordstrom.
