Dior Addict Fluid Shadows Cosmopolite Fall 2015

Happy Monday friends! Today I have a really exciting product to share with you from Dior's upcoming Cosmopolite Fall 2015 Collection! The new Dior Addict Fluid Shadows* are a liquid shadow/liner hybrid, available in a gorgeous selection of colours!

"A Dior innovation: An ultra-fine, lightweight hybrid texture that illuminates the eyes with sensational mirror shine and long-wearing color. In a single step, this ingenious makeup can dress the eyelid like an eyeshadow, or define the eyes with a stroke of liner." - Dior


The packaging of these new Dior Addict Fluid Shadows is just gorgeous! The clear heavy plastic tubes allow you to easily see the shade inside, which I always appreciate. However, I'm not a huge fan of the thick brush applicator. I find that it's too thick to apply this product as a liner, so you will need to use a separate brush for this purpose. Additionally, as excited as I was about this product, I unfortunately did not love it once I put it to the test. No matter what I tried, I couldn't get this product to work as a shadow. When applied with my fingers, the product collected in my crease and stuck to my fingers - absolutely no product was left on my lids! When I tried applying it with a brush, the product became cakey and most of the product clung to the brush. I've never seen anything like this, especially when the product swatches so beautifully!

The 5 shades that I tried are beautiful - it's such a shame that the colour didn't translate onto my lids! Destinée is a gorgeous maroon with purple undertones. Cosmic is a bright violet. Aurora is a beautiful pinky beige. Phenix is a yellow based gold shade. Univers is a steel-taupe that changes colour slightly depending on the angle.

While these Fluid Shadows swatch beautifully, they just don't work well on my lids. If you've tried out these liquid shadows/liners and have any application tips, please let me know in a comment below!

    1. They look gorgeous when swatched, but unfortunately they just don't work at all on my lids!

  2. I read from Ommorphia that using a flat synthetic brush helps with application. I tried it, it works much better than anything else but this shadow was still super hard to work with. Very disappointing

    1. Hmm I just went to read her review! I've also tried applying these with a flat synthetic brush, but the formula just turned a bit clumpy on my lids :(

  3. Sorry to hear they didn't translate as well on the eyes- that's always a shame, especially since these swatches look so promising! :)
