Launching this month as part of their Fall 2015 Cosmopolite Collection, are the new Dior Addict Fluid Shadows ($32 USD/$36 CAD). These fluid eye shadows are an extension of the Dior Fluid Sticks for Lips which took the beauty world by storm last year. The gorgeous metallic liquid shadows are already getting a lot of beauty hype. Let’s find out why.
- Luxurious liquid shadow that can be worn as a shadow or eye liner
- Gives off a mirror effect/metallic shine
- Fast-drying, long-wearing formula
- Brush applicator
- Comes in a sleek tube
- Available in 6 limited edition shade options
Liquid shadows can be difficult to work with so I personally prefer to use them as bases to intensify my eye look as opposed to using them as all-over washes of colour. Metallics can also be tricky with more mature skin so it’s important to apply them evenly and blend out any harsh edges. The colours in the range are gorgeous and can be applied in the crease, all over the lid or used as liner to amp up any look, whether subtle or dramatic. The formula is smooth and easy to apply however as with any liquid product, I would recommend applying a primer first to avoid product from slipping off the skin. This will also help extend its wear time. The brush tip makes applying these shadows more precise however I’d also recommend using a blending brush to smooth and even out the colour further. Below are swatches of 5 of the 6 new shades. What are your thoughts?
