When I finally found ADDICTION makeup on my trip to Japan, I practically threw myself at the counter. As soon as I started dabbing my fingers on the shadows, swatching the lipsticks, I was jumping up and down in excitement. I had the poor MUA, who spoke no English, running all around the place because I wanted try a bit of everything here and there. And after spending almost an hour trying on different things, I walked out of there with 4 eyeshadows, 2 lipsticks, 1 lipgloss and 1 nail polish (which was a GWP). And all I want is MOREEEE!!
Mind you, ADDICTION makeup is quite $$$, and if it didn't mean living off breadcrumbs for the rest of my trip I probably would have poured all my expenses into buying as much as I could. I definitely came back from Japan a major ADDICTION convert, and I'm here to spread the love!
Note: I'll be reviewing the eyeshadows in another post, along with an EOTD.
Words cannot describe the love I feel towards these ADDICTION cheek sticks. They have had me swooning all over.
Pastel Love is featured in my previous best of 2012 post, so you may already know how I feel about this one. I don't wear lipgloss that often, and usually wear it with a lipstick base as oppose to on it's own, so Pastel Love is perfect for me. Here's how it pairs with the above lippies:
Pastel Love is a soft peachy nude, with just the right amount of shimmer, so it goes with almost any lipstick I layer on top off. Hair still sticks on my lips every time the wind blows (which is why I don't wear gloss that often), but it doesn't feel sticky when worn. ADDICTION might just have me going for gloss more!
This was a GWP, but I love it nonetheless! It's not apparent in the swatch, but the polish has the slightest pearl shimmer, so it's got more depth and dimension if you see it in real life. For an opaque finish, I only needed 2 coats and it lasted a good week before it started to chip (with no top coat). I would definitely give Nessie a 5 out of 5!
Since this post is just a tad too long, I'll be getting onto the eyeshadows another time. Keep an eye out for it! Have you tried ADDICTION makeup? What do you recommend? I say they're worth another trip to Japan lol. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! :D
