Gold Eyes With Dior

If you love metallic colors for the eyes then Dior's Addict Fluid Eyeshadow is right up your street. A few weeks ago when having a makeover at Dior I was shown this fantastic gold colored eyeshadow. I love anything metallic and it looked awesome on which is why I had to get myself one of these.

It's a liquid eyeshadow and comes in packaging very similar to Dior Addict Lipglosses. There are quite a few colors to choose from and the one I went for was called Phenix. For the fan of anything gold, this is a color you must own.

Creams and liquid eyeshadows can take some getting used to and they do tend to have quite a bad reputation for creasing and coming off. This is why it is very important to use a good quality eye primer. The best two I have tried are Urban Decay's Primer Potion and NARS Smudge Proof Shadow Base. Out of the two my must have is the NARS one. Without a primer there is a high chance of the eyeshadow creasing, especially cream and liquid products. Without a primer this one will definitely crease even if it is a high end brand. I wore it with and without a primer and you will notice the difference.

I wore it again with a primer and found it is the only way to wear this product. It has a nice light texture to it and doesn't feel too runny or too thick. The consistency is just right. The best way to apply it is to dab to color onto the eyes using the applicator and then using a eyeshadow brush to blend it on and set it in place. The pigment is amazing too and I didn't really need to use more than two coats on my eyes to get them to glow. As this is a liquid eyeshadow you do have to sort of keep your eyes closed for around a minute to make sure the color has dried. There is nothing worse than opening your eyes too quickly before it has had time to dry.

There was virtuallly no creasing when I had my eyeshadow primer on underneath. I applied it in the morning and it was still looking good later on in the day. Metallics are an amazing color choice and this gold is no exception. I'm really happy with the product and wouldn't mind getting more colors from this range.

I decided to pair the color with a nude lip and wore Charlotte Tilbury's Very Victoria. Both colors went great together.
