About Dior Addict Fluid Shadow

Dior Addict Fluid Shadow is the first ever fluid shadow release from Dior. This limited edition line was just released in the third quarter of 2015, and press and cosmetic reviewers are already raving about it and crossing their fingers for Dior to make this line of fluid shadow a regular offering.

Dior Addict Fluid Shadow is a lightweight, very fluid, very illuminating, and very long wearing liquid eye shadow that comes in a tube and with an applicator similar to Dior’s liquid lip gloss line.

The Dior Addict Fluid Shadow comes in six unique, very Dior shades, each leaving the lids with an enamel shine that is waterproof and non-smudge. The fluid eye shadow comes in the following shades:

Dior Addict Fluid Shadow
  • Color Destinee: Reddish brown to burgundy
  • Color Aurora: Peachy
  • Color Univers: Very lightly tinted nude brown to taupe
  • Color Phenix: Yellow gold
  • Color Cosmic: Moderately dark plum
  • Color Magnetic: Silver

Each .20 Oz. tube costs $32 to $36, initially available only in US and Canada.

Manufacturer Information and its claims about Dior Addict Fluid Shadow

When it comes to high fashion, Dior undoubtedly has captured the catwalk. So, when the company tried its hand on the designer cosmetics and fragrances line, you can be certain that only the most luxurious and trendsetting makeup and scents came out of the House of Christian Dior.

Unbeknownst to many, Dior’s makeup and cosmetics lines are managed by Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE (LVMH), which remains to be the most luxurious fashion house in the world. Dior happens to be the largest shareholder of the LVMH Group of Companies.

How Does Dior Addict Fluid Shadow Work?

The product is very fluid, very watery, which allows time to blend it in properly during application. It does need some time to dry down to a powdery finish. It works two ways: you can use it as an eye shadow or, use it as an eyeliner to define and highlight your eyelids.

The watery formulation of the Dior Addict Fluid Shadow can be difficult to manage, most especially for the inexperienced. It is highly recommended to use other flat brushes as the applicator that comes with the tube isn’t very much of a help to make it easier to put on this liquid eye shadow.

Ingredients in Dior Addict Fluid Shadow

The full ingredients list has yet to be made available.

Dior Addict Fluid Shadow Benefits

The Dior Addict Fluid Shadow comes in interesting, eye captivating colors that may seem too loud but, the tints of which fade to more muted tones once the product has settled on your lids.

The product does not leave a stiffening or any uncomfortable feeling on the eyelids. It feels as if you’re not wearing anything on your lids. The product doesn’t smudge easily, crease resistant, extremely long wearing, and very much waterproof. So, if you need your eye shadow or eyeliner to last for beyond eight hours, the Dior Addict Fluid Shadow certainly is the unparalleled fluid eye shadow for you.

The product also comes in very classy and stylish tubes that’s distinctively Dior.

Dior Addict Fluid Shadow Drawbacks

The very watery texture of the Dior Addict Fluid Shadow makes it very unmanageable when being applied. The formulation does not allow for layering to be made. When layering is attempted, the first color tends to be scratched off, flakes and cracks.

The Dior Addict Fluid Shadow is not advisable for use of people who are pressed for time. You will most definitely need time (and perhaps even some practice) to get the hang of having to deal with the watery formulation so you can get your lids colored up prettily and glamorously.


Use liberally on your lids as eye shadow or eyeliner. You will normally need to apply the Dior Addict Fluid Shadow only once in a day. As the product is very much long wearing and semi-permanent, there will be no need to retouch or reapply during the day (or night).


Use only as directed. For external use only.

Who can use Dior Addict Fluid Shadow

Women (even men) who have time to figure out the right way to tame the Dior Addict Fluid Shadow should give this product a try.

Final Verdict

The Dior Addict Fluid Shadow is a refreshing addition to the many eye color brands and products already available in the market. It offers an unparalleled illumination and semi-permanence that lasts throughout the day.
