Dior Dior Addict Fluid Shadow
Dior Dior Addict Fluid Shadow

Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a new, limited edition liquid eyeshadow formula available in five shades. It’s supposed to be a “lightweight, fluid eye shadow” that can be used “as a liner or as allover shadow” that is long-wearing with “enamel shine.” If you’re not a fan of liquid eyeshadow, I don’t suspect these will be converting you any time soon. The texture is thin and watery. They’re very, very difficult to work with, and they do not layer, blend, or dry down well on the lid; they tend to crack and flake off in chunks. If you attempt to layer, the next layer will lift the color underneath it, and the second layer won’t stick to anything. The only way to wear these was by applying a small dab on the center of lid and then using a fingertip to blend to the point where the color wasn’t noticeable and only some shimmer remained. I don’t recommend using the applicator, as it applies a lot of product and makes it difficult to achieve precision. These were a complete disappointment with no redeeming qualities.

Dior Cosmic (275) Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark plum with warm undertones and lighter violet pearl. When swatched, it looks much more vibrant and purple-like, but it doesn’t show up as opaque color and the sheered out color is much darker and warmer–more subdued and easier to dupe. I couldn’t build up the color without lifting up the initial layer simultaneously, and it was very hard to diffuse any of the edges. The product flaked off in significant chunks after six hours. City Color G*psy (P, $6.99) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Mumtaz (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Overlook (DC, $14.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Trusted Instinct #3 (LE, ) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar).

Dior Phenix (545) Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a brightened, light-medium yellow gold with a sparkly, metallic sheen. It looked chunky applied and settled into the lines on my lid (which I wouldn’t consider having that many of!), and it dried unevenly so it would look thicker/raised in places. The sparkle fell out after four hours, while chunks came off after six hours of wear. L'Oreal Gold Imperial (LE, $7.99) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Golden Rhea (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Lancome Eternal Gold (P, $24.50) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).

Dior Univers (655) Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a dark taupe brown with warmer undertones and a cooler overtone. As it was very difficult to achieve opaque color out of it, the sheered out version was much warmer as bronzy gold frost dominated. It dried down quickly and wasn’t capable of being layered. There was flaking within six hours. NARS L'Amour, Toujours L'Amour #3 (DC, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). Maybelline Nude Compliment (90) (LE, $6.99) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Urban Decay Resist (LE, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Aurora (825) Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a light-medium rose gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to mostly opaque), and it was the only shade that I found could be somewhat layered. It did seem to thicken and emphasize the lid for me, though. It lasted for six hours before flaking off. MAC Mineral Mode (LE, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Parallel Universe (Left) (DC, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). BH Cosmetics Club Tropicana #16 (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #2 (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Earthshine (P, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Anastasia Rose (P, $12.00) is warmer (85% similar). Sephora Crystal (PiP, ) is less shimmery, less pigmented, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Dive (LE, $19.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Giorgio Armani Copper Reflection (34) (P, $39.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Buxom Glitz Factor (P, $12.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Destinee (875) Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a deepened burgundy with warm, reddish-brown undertones and lighter plum-burgundy shimmer that gives it a frosted sheen. It dried down quickly and emphasized the texture of the lid, and it was utterly impossible to layer this without it lifting in giant patches. It started to flake off after six hours of wear. Make Up For Ever D826 Fig (DC, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter, more pigmented (95% similar). Natasha Denona Maroon (22M) (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Idyllic (DC, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Sunset #7 (PiP, $9.99) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Extragalactic (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar).

STUPID me – I actually thought these were lip glosses at first (and ugly ones, at that!). These look sort of “chunky” on your eye, Christine (“chunky” is just the right word and the one I was looking for yesterday when applied a Maybelline Colour Tattoo that seems to be drying up – it has sort of a dry “skin” on the surface and bits of that “skin” deposit as “chunks” on my eyes!). Univers looks like a really nice shade but there are plenty of eyeshadows in that colour range. What is with high end companies releasing such dreadful stuff?

Yep! πŸ™ And once it dries, you’re stuck with it like that or start all over! I already knew it was a disastrous look, so I figured – let me show you what I mean EXACTLY.

I tried one last time i was at nords it didn’t go well! Its a shame they are so difficult because the colors are gorgeous! The only way it kind of worked was what you said about a light middle of the lid type of application. Too expensive for such poor results.

Wow, these look really, really awful applied! They actually make it look like there’s an underlying skin condition beneath them. I don’t understand why a ‘reputable’ company would release such horrible products & attach their name to them.

“These were a complete disappointment with no redeeming qualities”

Yeoch. Some of the harshest words I’ve seen from you. I will stay far, far, far away from them!

They look soooooooooo beautiful in the tube and the dense swatches.

Cruel, cruel world! [*fist shaking at sky*]

It cracks me up when a HE product works so poorly given that they definitely have the money to put into the formulation.

I think it would be the opposite. Drugstore brands make way more money than high end brands. Dior has a very limited audience compared to Maybelline or Revlon.

I totally agree, they are so difficult to use but the colors are so beautiful! I would say that these are NOT supposed to be used as a shadow. I only use them as an eyeliner and I need to get a perfect line in one stroke. If that works out, they look wonderful but they to tend to crack and I saw chunks of the red one under my eyes after 4 hours.

I tried using the taupe-ish one as an eyeliner (in the eye look in the post), but it was sooo sheer. I even used an eyeliner brush, but nope!

Um, wow! You’d think for such an expensive product they’d make sure the product actually worked well first? Maybe not. People will still buy it just because of the name brand, they’ll assume it will work well. Thankfully we have people like you to give honest reviews. I’ll be steering clear of this one.

“These were a complete disappointment with no redeeming qualities.”

I hate when products are bad, but I love when you lay down the hammer on them Christine!

Wow, I read these were problematic and tricky to use, but I didn’t realize how bad until I saw your scores! I thought Dior’s powder shadows were bad, the liquid one are even worse. I was eyeing Cosmic because the purple color was so beautiful and unique-looking. Was really hoping these would be like the Giorgio Armani Eye Tints, but not even close. Thanks for saving me money!

Omg, these look like a such a disappointment. When you can see the shadow clumping visibly, you know its a bad product. Such a shame, seeing as these colours were actually pretty. :/ It’s as if Dior did not even test them before sending them out. So sub-par.

Uh….the packaging is kind of nice?
I don’t know I tried to say something nice, but I am so sick of high end brands putting out disappointing products in pretty packaging.
Destinee made you look like you had scabs on your eyelid. The chunky consistency just looks gross. They look like cheap kiddie makeup at best.

You are a great reviewer and have a wonderful way with words! I was giggling to myself at “a complete disappointment with no redeeming qualities”, “flaked off in significant chunks” and “utterly impossible to layer”. Thanks for spending your $$ and putting this on your lids so we don’t have to πŸ™‚

Were they even tested out before they launched them? I remember few liquid shadows by drugstore brands that were so much better 10 (!) years ago! With all this opaque theme in Dior fall collection, I doubt that it was meant sheer. Even powder eyeshadows didn’t look as opaque on swatches as they show on pictures. Ugh

So, I was browsing through the site and this product caught my eye — especially that color in Cosmic. But I seriously had a ‘gasp! and clutch my pearls’ moment when I saw your grades.

At that moment, I hadn’t read the title or your review (I had my shock blinders on). In fact, I hadn’t read anything! I had only clicked the link and begun scrolling through the swatches, trying to locate the problem. All I had thought was, “How bad could these lip glosses be?!” And then I stopped at the image of you wearing it on your eyelid. “Well, then… That’s why.” BWAHAHAHAHA!

Yeaaah…now I see why they got the grades that they did.
And I’ve also learnt that I need to read titles. Lol

These swatch sooooo gorgeously, I’m gutted that they didn’t apply or wear well! Hoping maybe someone else will come out with something similar but better.

Yikes. That’s appalling, and at $36. Canadian, too. It’s products like this that are making me return to mid-priced lines. Thanks, Christine, for the heads-up!

I may be in the minority here, but I like these. I bought Aurora, Univers and Cosmic. The other day I wore Aurora on the lid with Univers as a crease colour. I applied them with a flat, synthetic brush over Too Faced Shadow Insurance and had no real issues. They applied opaquely and had great lasting power. I would say that my only issue is that they aren’t very blendable because of how fast they set, so to get a decently blended crease look, I built up Univers in very thin layers. It’s not swipe and go but I like them.

Happy to hear you had good results, Jess! I did try using them with a flat, synthetic brush, but unfortunately, I still couldn’t get them to apply well.

Chile these $32 USD and look like rose art (super waxy crayons) type quality…They definitely was tripping on this formula and it had such potential….As always you to the rescue to save us boatloads of money on sub-par overly priced products…lol…thanks for the review…

I like how in that last photo you’re giving the side-eye to the shadow on your eye. Ha! Anyway, I’m glad to see we had the same reaction to these shadows. I didn’t test them as extensively as you, but when I saw them in Sephora, I was attracted by the beautiful colors, but as soon as I started playing with them, I just thought, what the hell is this?! No redeeming qualities indeed!

in my town was a sale of makeup so i went to the dior counter to get a tube of my fav bb cream (hydra life it was sold out and i got another one instead but thats another story) and the spokeswoman told me that i should try those liquid eyeshadows and i was like ok let me swatch them and i fell in love with cosmic but when i swatched it IT WAS AWFUL, IT WASNT BLENDABLE AND THEY WERE SO DIFFICULT TO USE, i thought “if christine tests this it would get an STRAIGHT UP F” … i tested aurora too and it was a little easier to work with than cosmic because it actually blended, not smoothly but it blended… i didn’t bought any of them. glad. and glad i guessed right. they are expensive tho! for the price those things shouldnt happen!

LOL! They seem like a real challenge, and as much as I tried, I never got halfway decent results. For $30+ a shade, I’m not sure anyone should have to work that hard. It’s just eyeshadow!

What a disappointment! To be honest I wasn’t expecting much of these: liquid shadow can be tricky and Dior hasn’t exactly demonstrated excellence in terms of shadow formulas lately…
But I remained hopeful! If Armani can do the Eye Tints, why can’t Dior give us something good?

I’m amazed you hated these so much, Christine. I got Aurora on the weekend and had decent luck with it. I got creaseless mirror shine that held up for the equivalent of a workday in really hot and muggy weather. I’m with you on the application to an extent. I started with UD primer, applied it with its own applicator and managed to blend the edges slightly with a flat synthetic brush. So it’s in no way ideal, but I sort of expected that from the consistency and the finish is worth the hassle in my opinion. I swatched it thinly on my hand and tried to blend it with my finger and that ended horribly. I’ll definitely be using mine again, though.

Aurora was one of the better performers for me, and I did try using them with flat, synthetic brushes, but I just didn’t have the same luck as you. I’m super jealous! The colors are gorgeous.

The colors in the tube look so pretty that it is sad that the product itself is a total loser. Why Dior would even bother with a product like this, I will never know. At least now everyone who was lusting after these can save their money, thanks to you Christine. πŸ™‚

Oh. My. God. These MUST be the worst eyeshadows I have ever seen. For real, though. I honestly and totally feel bad that you even had to wear these for one whole day. Christine, you have my sympathy, because WOW, these are BAD!

They are definitely some of the worst I’ve come across — not just poor in terms of wear/opacity but a pain to apply.

The sales associate used the Aurora on my daughter and it was beautiful. She said the trick was to just let it dry down before touching it. She placed it on the lid only, then used a bit of powder over the one edge into the crease to give it some dimension – and it lasted for hours. It really made her eyes stand out. However, my daughter did not purchase.

I tried letting it dry down before layering/playing with it, but it flakes away in chunks rather than blends – I could see a powder eyeshadow helping to fake the diffusion of the edges, though!

I swatched Univers and Aurora in Sephora just today and they were gorgeous. But I don’t trust liquid eyeshadow, not even the idea of liquid shadows appeals to me, so I didn’t have high hopes for these. The colors were seriously gorgeous, but goodness! How did these get the green light?

Try the Josie Maran coconut water liquid eyeshadows if you haven’t already Christine! They’re life changingly wonderful and so beautiful.
I have beach sand and Rio de rose gold x

em….I actually read on a Taiwanese beauty website that the “official” application method is to “apply it on the eyelid, DO NOT use your finger to blend it and wait for it to dry for 30 seconds”. Maybe this is the reason why they can not be blended at all?

I tried it the following ways:

1.) Applied using the applicator
2.) Applied with a fingertip
3.) Applied with a flat, synthetic brush
4.) Applied with a fluffier, natural brush
5.) Applied with a silicone applicator
6.) Applied with a sponge tipped applicator

Coincidentally, I saw these at work earlier today and thought the colors were pretty, so I swatched Cosmic. It was as bad as you said! The color looked so pretty, but as soon as I applied it to the back of my hand, too much came out and it was very watery. I tried to blend it out, but it sheered out just like your swatch. I was very disappointed. So not worth the money and there are so many options of terrific eyeshadows.

It’s sooo watery! Even when I tried using it with a brush, so I would get less, there was so little ability to build color up.

Lucky for those that get it to work for them! This proves why not a lot of companies make liquid shadows! It’s so difficult to try to find that balance of consistency, pigmentation, and durability. I’m not into that kind of formula much anyway, but the Josie Maran eyeshadows seem kind of promising. The shade Maui Teal is so pretty, I’m just hesistant of the applicator, which seems to always break inside the bottles.

The Dior research & development team who produced this eyeshadow should be forced to wear this product to work everyday for at least one week. What a mess! On a brighter note I wore my Giorgio Armani Senso liquid shadow layered with Laura Mercier’s Amethyst shadow today. Lasted all day from 6am until I took it off at 5:30pm. Dior should confer with Giorgio and Laura.

This is incredibly sucky because they look gorgeous in the tube. Honestly, I feel like Dior just constantly fails at makeup.

Just as well I am not a fan of liquid shadows (wearing glasses that could be really tricky!), but OMG – what is Dior doing? The colours are pretty but – where’s their quality control? Research?

The fact that they release this product, surely knowing how poor the quality is, and then have the nerve to charge luxury prices is just so insulting! I don’t know how Dior can stay in business when their makeup is so consistently awful. I wouldn’t pay $5 for this stuff.

Oh Christine, the 2 last pictures are painful to watch… I wonder if they created these shadows to be used as a wash of color, but $32 for a wash of color? No thanks.

That’s a depressing miss considering the quality of their cream shadows. Boots No. 7 and Rimmel both have liquid eyeshadows that are much better quality and significantly cheaper to boot.

At this point, I feel like some of these designer brands are actively trying to scam people. I’m under the impression that Christine is posting reviews of terrible high end products on a daily basis. How are they getting away with this? Are people really paying $30+ for a tiny amount of useless glittery goo? Unbelievable.

Definitely skew higher-end overall in terms of reviews (have drugstore/budget products, sure, but we are still skewing mid to high-end!), so that may make the picture a bit distorted.

I am so sorry you didn’t like these, Christine. I know I’m in the minority, but I love them. I use them on top of MAC Painterly (not a silicone primer) and apply with the MAC 242 (not the silly little brush on the wand). They wear like iron, no flaking, no clumping and have high shine. πŸ™‚

I was wary the moment I saw these had brush applicators, but I didn’t expect them to perform THAT badly, epsecially not at that price point. I’ll stick to Rimmel Scandal Eyes and Darling Girl Wonder Wands for liquid eyeshadows.

They look horrible. You get better fluid eyeshadows for 3-5 bucks in Austria. I wonder how they got released? If i were you and if it was possible, i’d return all of them. πŸ™ what a waste of money!

I tested them today at my local store, and the salesperson said…. They’re new in stock, gorgeous etc …. Maybe she didnt test it, or she wanted to make fun of me πŸ˜€

“These were a complete disappointment with no redeeming qualities.”

Ouch! I agree completely, though! I’m really glad you give a completely honest review every single time, though, Christine. It’s so nice to be able to pop in, read your review and see your swatches, then move on.

Like most people said, these are so pretty in the tube but just not the best when it comes to performance, I guess! What’s going on at Dior? It seems like everything they put out is a C or worse these days.

Oh dear. Really disappointing… especially Destinee is such a pretty color! For the liquid eyeshadow I love Armani’s Eye Tints in Senso which hangs on to my lids all throughout a 20k run (I have another shade which doesn’t perform as well). I think it’s also comes down to the color picking though.

Epic fail, Dior!
I can feel the painwhen trying to get a product to work, and it just doesn’t cooperate.

I actually felt a little second of makeup-happiness when I saw the first photo, silly me, should have known better as it’s eyeshadows from Dior (I used to love Dior, but that was like a gazillion years ago).

Oh good, we were right! My daughter and I tried these on at Nordstroms, and were having a heck of a time with them. We thought we were being dummies – we just could not get it to work! I agree with your review…

Wow, they’re such gorgeous colors! Too bad the formula is such a miss.

(If I have a website bug to let you know about, is there an email I can address it to?)

These look so beautiful in the packaging – what a disappointment. Time to fish out some of those dupes πŸ™‚ Thanks for the review as usual!

I swatched these in store and they were horrible. It could be a matter of pickiness but when swatching, they thinned out and looked extremely patchy, on top of that, the more you attempted to blend, the more the pigment migrated towards the edge as opposed to fully blending. It seemed to form like a circle of rolled up pigment that could not be blended out. Even the lady didn’t recommend them!! It was a good thing I was coming in for the loose powder which is wonderful.
