Beauty News & Reviews
I had a very welcomed delivery on Friday when the lovely people at ARTDECO sent me a selection from their Spring/Summer 2012 line for me to sample.
The latest collection is a fusion of beauty meets fashion and was inspired by German fashion brand Kaviar Gauche. The range is a highly pigmented mix of strong neutrals and stand out coral and turquoise shades that are perfect for making the most of a tan come spring and summer time. So here’s the skinny on the new collection:
Firstly, the two nail varnishes I was sent – ‘Soft Coral’ and ‘Metallic Soft Copper’. They’re the type of lovely, strong shades that will rock on a girl with a nice tan but will equally pop on a pale girl such as myself! There is also a dark pink shade available as well as a nice 2 in 1 base and topcoat, all of which are priced around €10.
Next there are the ‘Perfect Colour’ lipsticks which come in two shades – ‘Soft Coral’ and ‘Bittersweet Rose’, priced at €12 each. These are creamy lipsticks which are vibrant and pigmented for those girls who want to stand out from the crowd! You can get a better idea of the shades in the swatch below.
For those who prefer gloss to lipstick, there are two intensely shaded lip lacquers to choose from (retailing for approx. €13 each), each of which offers a bright summery shade for girls who want a slightly glossier lip while still packing a punch with their look.
There is also a nice full coverage foundation(€25) in the ARTDECO Spring/Summer 2012 range. It’s oil free to provide a long lasting base that blends easily, hides imperfections and has the added bonus of an SPF 20 which is always much appreciated once the sun comes out.
ARTDECO have also included an Ultra Volume Mascara (€16) in the Kaviar Gauche inspired collection, as well as a dark brown and forest green eye pencil (€9) to help define the eyes.
Finally, where would a make-up lover be without their eye palettes? These eyeshadows are bold and bright and again would help create a strong statement look. The line has a nice mixture of neutrals and stronger shades so girls can pick and choose how understated or full on they want their looks to be.
All the products in this collection are well crafted, long lasting and vibrant, providing a strong selection with a good mixture of prices to cater to most budgets. For more information on the full 2012 Spring/Summer ARTDECO Collection inspired by Kaviar Gauche, visit HERE
