ArtDeco is an European makeup and beauty brand, specializing in allowing users to customize their own palettes.
For fall/winter 2015, which is available in stores as of October, the Mystical Forest collection features earthy nudes and dark berries. I’ve been completely obsessed with dark berries lately, especially a dark berry eye paired with equally sultry lips, so this collection is right up my alley. It contains six new shades of silky Eyeshadows – the three shades I received were No. 89A Dark Queen, No. 91A Forest Flower, and No. 215 Mountain Rose. 89A Dark Queen is a beautiful smokey deep berry shade with a satin finish, 91A Forest Flower is a shimmery mauve, and 215 Mountain Rose is a shimmery silvery rose pink. You can choose to house your new eyeshadows in a limited edition Beauty Box Quattro, which has a beautiful forest design on the lid, complete with a deer!
To pair with the strong, vampy eye makeup, there is also a new Blusher in No. 40 Crown Pink, a dusty dark rose-pink that’s almost red, as well as new Soft Lip Liner Waterproof in No. 79 Mystical Heart with the complementary Perfect Color Lipstick in No. 25A Mystical Heart, both dark berry pinks. The texture of the blush is beautifully soft and pigmented – a little goes a long way! The Lip Liner is creamy but still tugs a bit when applied, and the Perfect Color Lipstick is ultra creamy with a semi-opaque finish.
Lastly, we have two Art Couture Nail Lacquers in No. 700 Couture Mystical Heart, and No. 741 Couture Purple Emperor.
