I was recently introduced to ARTDECO, Germany’s #1 makeup brand, and wanted to share the brand with you. This line was created in 1985 but has recently started to gain popularity worldwide as it has made its debut in countries around the globe. It’s now available in North America – my Canadian friends can find it in Shoppers Drug Mart (mainly in Ontario in Alberta) – and after learning a little about it I was really eager to get my hands on some of the products. I’ve been able to play around with some of the core products as well as a couple of items from the gorgeous Tribal Sunset Collection. Read on to learn more about the products and my experience with them. One little note… If you like the sound of these, stay tuned – you just might have a chance to win a few of my favourite products soon!
ARTDECO All In One Mascara - This mascara claims to do it all – provide maximum volume, lengthen and curl. I do really like this mascara so far – it comes out really black and doesn’t clump, and I really like how light it feels on my lashes. Personally, it doesn’t volumize too much, but I will say that it gives amazing length and does curl. I love how long my lashes look when I have this on.
ARTDECO Beauty Box Quattro (Limited Edition Colour) & Eyeshadows – I love the fact that ARTDECO makes it so easy to customize your products to suit your taste. The beauty boxes comes in several different sizes to suit your needs (duo, trio, quattro and magnum) and can fit a variety of eyeshadows and blushers. The magnetic strip inside the box ensures your product doesn’t go anywhere. I love the fact that I can make up perfect palettes for whatever look I want whenever I want. The eyeshadows that I’ve had a chance to play with are really lovely – they have a really nice shimmer, apply very smoothly and have really nice colour.
ARTDECO Eyeshadow Base – This base is a little bit different than others that I’ve used. It’s really creamy and soft, and reminds me of a gel primer once applied. It does have a hint of shimmer to it to perk up your shadows. I find that it really helps to bring out the colour of eyeshadows that are applied on top of it – they come out more bold and bright, and definitely last longer.
ARTDECO Bronzing Glow Blusher in Sun Dance (Limited Edition – Tribal Sunset Collection) – I can add this to my “beautiful bronzesr that I don’t want to touch because they’re too pretty” collection. This bronzer comes in a case decorated with an ethnic motif to fit into the Tribal Sunset Collection. I love the pretty design of the bronzer and the three shades included in it – a peach, a tan and a pink. They can easily be used on their own or can be blended together to create the perfect sun-kissed flush.
ARTDECO Art Couture Lipstick in Pearl Flower (Limited Edition – Tribal Sunset Collection) - This lipstick is one of the items I’m loving the most from the products I’ve tried. The texture is rich and creamy with a ton of moisture and really great colour payoff. This shade is a pretty rosey shade with a hint of gold shimmer throughout.
ARTDECO Ceramic Nail Lacquer in Cosmopolitan Green – This shimmery, mint polish is such a pretty, ethereal shade – it reminds me of fairies. This polish applies nicely and dries quickly, finishing with great shine.
