My first Artdeco beauty purchase was their famous Eyeshadow base 12$ . This little magical pot changed the way I do my makeup and completely left me amazed – how did I ever apply/wear eyeshadow without a base? It makes such a huge difference if you haven’t tried you need to see it to believe it. It acts as a magnet to hold onto the shadow pigment preventing it from fading and creasing throughout the day. Eyeshadow base is a popular and well know makeup item nowadays but 10 years ago when I first purchased it no one had idea about it. The base calms reddened eyelids with bisabolol and neutralizes the color of the eyelid. Vitamin E nourishes and protects the sensitive skin of the eyes. Suitable for all kind of eyeshadows. It has extremely rich texture and tiny bit goes a long way.
Most wanted contouring palette 20$ is perfect trio of everything you might need for your complexion – highlighter, blush and a countour powder (bronzer). It has very sleek packaging and pocket size makes it perfect for use when you are on the go. You can use all three colors together or separately. Highlighter is very soft and without noticeable shimmer – I would rather describe it as brightening powder. It is amazing for under the eyes to set the concealer and brighten up that area. It is also great for someone who doesn’t usually use highlighters, has oily skin or simply stays away from anything with shimmer/glitter. You will notice in my swatch below it blended right into my (pale) skin. Blush is a nice matte peachy/pink shade. It has wonderful payoff and very smooth silky texture that blended easily. It appears pretty bright in the pan but with a light hand it gives just a nice flush of color to the cheeks. Contour/bronzer is on a warmer side so I would say it is perfect for warmer skin tones for contouring while for the rest it would be better option to be used as a bronzer (or however you like to call products that warm up the complexion or give that bit of healthy summer glow).
Most wanted eyeshadow pallete in Brown 35$ (also comes in Nude) is pre made palette of 12 warm toned bronze, copper and beige shades . It has perfect balance of shimmer, satin and matte shades. I love the lighter matte shades for quick “no makeup” makeup look or as a base for the rest of the colors. All the colors have perfect payoff and blend easily. Eyeshadows are one of the best products Artdeco has to offer. This pallete is warm toned while Nude is more on the neutral/cooler side. These are fragrance free and suitable for sensitive eyes. In my experience Artdeco shadows beside being super pigmented do not have fallout and do not fade throughout the day.
I used to love and buy Artdeco makeup while I lived in Europe but since I moved to USA 8 years ago I wasn’t able to purchase it here. I am beyond excited to see brand launcnihg in the US. Great quality and reasonable prices. Another thing I love about Artdeco is their My beauty box – the way I want it system where you can purchase empty magnetic palettes for eyeshadows blushes and camouflage cremes. Their eyeshadows come in over 150 colors and in different finishes – duochrome, matte, pearle. They are easily inserted and popped back out in case you need to switch out the colors.
