Dita Von Teese For ARTDECO

I’ve always had a bit of a girl crush on Dita Von Teese, the porcelain skin ,the red lips, the clothes. She is a style icon, no question about it. When I first heard that she was collaborating with ARTDECO, my heart skipped a beat with the excitement. This excitement grew and grew and finally reached breaking point when some lovelies arrived on my doorstep from her fall favourites collection.
Illuminationg Baked Powder €42.30
This luxurious highlighter is perfect for illuminating cheeks and under eyebrows. It’s marbled powder texture ensure a soft , natural shimmer. The powder features different pastel colors so no matter what your skintone, this is bound to be a perfect match. As soon as I swatched this lovely, I fell in love. It’s a very subtle highlighter, perfectly enhancing my cheekbones without giving to strong a glow.
Blusher €10.85
Blusher adds a touch of frshness to your complexion and the shade I was sent No.26 definitely does that. When I first saw it, I thought it might be a bit too strong for me, but on applying to my cheekbones, I found it gave a lovely hint of colour and instantly woke my complexion up. It also stay put for the entire day.
Eyebrow Gel €14.05
I firmly believe everygirl needs an eyebrow gel in her makeup stash. My eyebrows are quite a light colour so the mink shade I was sent is the perfect compliment. The gel gave a subtle lift of colour to my eyebrows while holding them in place for hours.
Ultra Volume Mascara €16.70
We all know by now, I’m somewhat of a fussy Betty when it comes to mascara, if it doesn’t lift my lashes and give them some Va Va Voom, I’m not a happy girl. So how did this lovely stand up to my standards? Va Va Voom established! The thick brush lifted my lashes and added an incredible amount of volume. I wore this into work the other day and received lots of compliments. Some even asking which false eyelashes I had on.
Art Couture Lipstick Velvet No 634 €19.25
“Classic red lips are always the height of glamour, and the most chic beauty statement a woman can make!” – Dita Von Teese
She is definitely onto something there. While I’m usually not brave enough to wear a bold red lip, I appreciate how sophisticated it can look when applied correctly. The shade I was sent is a bold red and is gorgeous. The texture is very soft and glides onto lips adding a huge pop of colour.
Ceramic Nail Lacquer No 26 €11.05
Now that Autumn is here, I have packed away most of my colourful polishes and exchanged them for darker shades. This baby makes a great addition to my darker shades. Again it is a deep red shade and looks gorgeous on. Oh and the ceramic in the lacquer should make it more resistant aginst chipping.
xxx I would definitely give the collection a look next time you find yourself at an ARTDECO counter. Anything from the collection calling to you? xxx
