I'll admit it. I was nervous when I first saw the new Dior Addict Fluid Shadows ($32 US/$36 CAD). I feared they were going to be a dud.

The packaging is very Dior Addict. The tubes are the same size as the Dior Addict Lip Maximizers, so a bit smaller than say the Dior

Get That Dewy Skin Natural Look with These New Products from Nudestix

NUDESTIX has added several new products to their range recently and I'm going to be sharing some of them with you today. NUDESTIX #gobronze ($35 US/$38 CAD) is a beautifully packaged set including two Magnetic Eye Color Pencils in Gilt and Immortal. The gold and bronze shades offer a subtle magnetic finish and have great pigmentation and colour payoff.
