Even more Addiction By Ayako

I decided I had too many Addiction singles so I wanted to arrange them nicely in some compacts.
The cases are rather nice, big mirror and very well made.  Well I hope so for their prices but they are worth every cent.

While I was waiting for the cases to to arrive I decided to mockup what they would look like with the sample pictures on the website.
case 1
Sand Bar, Concerte Jungle, Revenge blush,
Fudge, Flash Back 
case 2
Blue Moon, Crow, Night dive,
Silent Scream, Neverland, Pink Python 

Those are all the addiction powder products that I own.  I won't be buying anymore unless something really amazing comes out.

Case 1.  
Sandbar is flattering, doesn't need primer and never creases.  I generally only use Sandbar, Concrete Jungle and Revenge blush. I think Fudge looks better when mixed with Concrete Jungle.  Flash Back is my least favourite because of how it looks on me.  


I only purchased fudge to compare it to Dior's Gold Touch 546 (discontinued).

On bare skin

I think they are kind of similar, Gold Touch is lighter in tone.  Texture wise they are very similar, both buttery smooth and pigmented.  It's my first Dior shadow.  Nostalgia there :)

Case 2.
I like Blue Moon and Silent Scream. Silent Scream is the best green I have, it's so vibrant.  Those 2 shades really shine over a base like a eyeliner pencil.

Crow, Neverland, Night Dive are all hard work for me. They seem to have this crumbly fall out texture that applies like a faint murk that I can't layer for opacity and a primer like nyx hd eye primer is required to make them work.  NARS pro prime is useless with those shades.

Here they are over NYX HD eye primer.

  1. Lovely colors; it's a pity some don't work as well as the others. I have a few Addiction powder products, but no palettes yet! I wish I could explore the brand some more, but there's only so much you can do when you don't live in Japan!

  2. Amazing swatches-I will be staring at them daily to narrow my Addiction lust list!
