A few months ago, as I was doing a celebratory dance after purchasing the last four shadows and completing my Addiction eyeshadow collection, the brand goes ahead and announces a total overhaul of their shadows...just once, can a girl ever catch a break"!
In lieu of the Addiction's upcoming August 7th release of the brand's new and revamped, 99 shade eyeshadow lineup, I'm going to post in four installments, swatches of the Addiction eyeshadows in my collection (80 in total).
Addiction eyeshadows come in four finishes: Matte (M), Metallic (ME), Pearl (P), Sparkle (S).
From left to right: Paper Doll 001M, Sugar Angel 002P, Snow Magic 003S, Snow Bouquet 004S.
Paper Doll 001M: a snow white.
Sugar Angel 002P: a wedding dress-white.
Now, the next four shadows are categorized as "Sparkle." But, instead of having a dry texture, they have a petroleum-like-gel consistency. These are some of the shades going bye-bye; a shame because, whether worn alone or over another shadow, they add a mesmerizing, multidimensional sparkle to the lids.
Snow Magic 003S: a semi-gray-clear base, loaded with silver and gunmetal glitter.
Snow Bouquet 004S: a semi-pink-clear base, loaded with silver, pink and red glitter.
From left to right: Snow Bird 005S, Snow Venus 006S, Beige 007M, Ice Wall 008ME.
Snow Bird 005S (my favorite of the four): a semi-chartreuse-clear base, loaded with silver, yellow-gold, lime-green and baby pink glitter.
Snow Venus 006S: a semi-platinum-clear base, loaded with silver, gold and platinum glitter.
Beige 007M: just that, beige.
Ice Wall 008ME: a pearlized-beige.
From left to right: Sandcastles 009P, Magic Flute 010P, Sandbar 011P, Rigoletto 012ME.
Sandcastles 009P: a pale, muted, mustard-yellow.
Magic Flute 010P: a pale, wheat-yellow.
Sandbar 011P: an icy, pale, pinkish-peach-flesh-tone.
Rigoletto 012ME: a coppery-peach.
