Kose Addiction – Eyeliner in 02 Sugar Blond – HG Alert

by Sonia G.

I have hesitated a very long time before ordering this eyeliner from Kose Addiction and I am happy I decided to finally get it.

My make up routine involves a beige cream liner, every single day.

On a daily basis I use it for contouring my lips, in a very light and extremely blended application, you can not even see it but it’s there. First step I contour my lips (outer line) with a beige liner, blend to an almost invisible line, then apply a dark lipliner closer to the lips and blend inwards, then I use another neutral lipliner to fill the lips… It sounds like a heavy routine but it takes me a few seconds only. When this combined lipliner base is applied, my lips look defined, younger, full, and the lipstick lasts a very long time, even when the lipstick is gone, the base remains visible throughout the day.

I started using the Cargo liner a few years ago, then I upgraded to the Mac, then the Nars, and recently I just got the Chanel and the Addiction.

The Cargo has become a bit dry and difficult to blend. The Mac is still nice but not as luminous as the Addiction and it does not last. The Nars is very good, easy to blend, lasts a good amount of time but the Chanel and the Addiction are much better in texture and lasting power.

The Chanel is a very beautiful flesh tone beige, very long lasting, great formula, also safe for the inner rim.

The Addiction Sugar Blond is lighter than the Chanel Beige Clair, when blended it’s more transparent and leaves an ivory-beige subtle shine. Perfect for highlighting the inner eye area, and just the best for contouring the lips. I don’t know if this is safe for the waterline and I cannot find this info anywhere. I have used other shades like Rabbit Hole in the waterline and it was allright.

The Addiction will not go away, either in a thick line or blended, it will stay put all day, it will not flake or fade.

I cannot compare it to a Rouge Bunny Rouge long lasting eye pencil because RBR have only 3 dark shades at the moment, however I will shortly be comparing the RBR in Salome with the Addiction Blackjack…  🙂

Another great item by Kose Addiction, and I am scared to try the rest of the line…

Arggghhh!! I was sooooo closed in getting this one but didn’t.. Sigh..

Thanks for another lovely post. I was using my Addiction eyeshadows and eyeliner for the past 3 days and I really love it! You are spot on about the lasting power, and the eyeliner does not fade one bit. I love the Rabbit Hole so much I have not got a chance to even try Blackjack. 🙂

I am trying quite a few things lately and I am glad all showing positive results. Love my RMK Mix Colors for cheeks in 02 Coral. It lasts a good 14 hours despite me running about in hot and humid weather. Was also trying Kanebo Lunasol’s Lunasol Skin Modeling Liquid Foundation (which is a Spring renewal formula) for the past 2 weeks and have been pretty happy with it.

Oh yeah, with the Addiction cosmetics purchase, I was given some foundation, primer, and tinted moisturizer samples to try. Will let you know what I think later.

Have a great day. 🙂

Hi CC ! I am so happy you like the eyeliners and the RMK blush, these products are expensive but really good (and I ordered also a few more Addiction eyeshadows, no comment, I am blown away…). I am also trying new foundations right now, my friend Dena from beautifulactivenourished.com just sent me Illamasqua samples and I am loving this foundation, yesterday it lasted a full day and I looked flawless! I also have the Addiction foundation sample they sent me with my order and I can’t wait to try it ! Let me know how it works on your skin 🙂
I have extremely dry skin so we’ll see…

Have a wonderful day too 🙂

Thanks for your reply.

Please let me know if you have anymore Addiction HG alert! Haha.. My sister’s friend is heading back to Japan and I will be seeing him again this year end so I am hoping for him to get me more products..

Oh, have you seen these?


They look lovely and I love the piano black finish!

Hi CC, I might post some eyeshadow swatches tomorrow, their eyeshadows are AMAZING !
I did see that about the brushes… I am waiting … still not available I think 🙂

I am so going to add this to my order! I use the Cargo pencil for this purpose (was recommended by a super good source). I had not tried the Chanel…. I think I will but definitely need the Addition (along with Rabbit Hole of course).

The Chanel and the Addiction are perfect for me also because they are so soft and creamy ! my lips are extremely delicate and that’s one of the reasons I had to stop with the Cargo and find a more gentle option for a daily use 🙂

Hi Sonia,

Apparently the Addiction brushes are already available in some online store and the prices are very high:
