My Artdeco Palette

Hey lovelies!

It’s Christmas Eve tomorrow! Who’s excited? I sure am. So I’ve talked to you about building up my own little eyeshadow palette with Artdeco before as my mom put 12 little eyeshadows in my beauty advent calendar for me. I know, I’m really lucky she did this for me and I couldn’t be happier with the shades she picked for me.

Building up an eyeshadow palette with the concept Artdeco uses is pretty much the easiest thing ever. They offer little boxes with the biggest one having room for up to 12 eyeshadows. The eyeshadow pans as well as the box you put them in are magnetic. This means that you can just easily pop them in and out. If you ever want to rearrange the colors or one is empty and you want to replace it or if you get bored of one shade and want to add a different shade it’s so easy to arrange them. So a big thumps up for that!

Another big plus is the wide variety of shades. They have an amazing color range in different finishes ranging from matte to shimmery or super glittery. If you can’t find enough gorgeous shades to put together a little palette with the choices you’re giving there must be something wrong with you. Obviously I haven’t tried every color from their collection but every shade I’ve tried so far ( around 14 in total I believe) has been of a really good quality. Each shade is very pigmented, super easy to blend and they last a fair share on the lid without a primer.

The only thing I’m missing when it comes to these eyeshadows is a cool name. I don’t know if it’s just me but I love when a make up product has a cool name. All of these eyeshadow just have numbers, which are printed on the lids (I’ve taken mine off) but you can also find them on the side of the little pan. Obviously this is just a minor thing though and I can only recommend trying out some Artdeco eyeshadows. They’re quality is amazing and I love their palette building system. It’s a super easy way to pick up some of your favorite shades and arrange them just the way you want without having to do any depotting or what-so-ever.

Here are some swatches of the shades I currently own.

(Bottom row including the shades 271 27s, 314 44p, 316 24s, 311 40p, 45 31p, 38 40p)

I’m really happy with the shades my mom picked for me because now I have a nice range of nudes, browns and neutrals but I also have some great shades to use for a glittery smokey eye.

Have you ever tried any Artdeco products? What do you think of their palette building system?

Thank you for reading!

Some Shiny New Things

Hey everyone!

I actually have a little haul for you today! I’ve been accumulating just a few make up bits over the last few weeks, so I thought why not put them all together in one little post. Some are newer than others and some I haven’t even had the chance to try yet. But let’s get into it anyway, shall we?

Artdeco Palette

I’ve talked about my Artdeco palette in my what’s in my advent calendar post before! As you can see it’s filled up quite a lot since then and I’m only missing two more shades! Eeek! So far I’ve loved every single shade I’ve discovered in my advent calendar. I just love the idea of how you can build palettes with the brand Artdeco and I think I might do a full post on the palette once it’s complete.

Soleil Tan de Chanel

Okay, so I’ve been lusting after this beauty for months now but I could never justify spending this high of an amount on a bronzer. As much as I wanted it, I really couldn’t. But my mom is a loyal customer of this beauty store close to where we live and every few months she gets a 30% discount on all products, so she got this one for me as a little gift because I passed all of my midterm exams! Yay! Go me! Passed all my exams and got the bronzer of my dreams. But anyway.. this bronzer is an absolute beauty and so luxurious. It took me a week to finally get myself to use it because I just didn’t want to even touch it before. It’s just so stunning.

Essence Lip Liner in Femme Fatale

I blogged about this yesterday and gave a full review of it. I discovered this amazing lip liner in my beauty advent calendar a few days ago and I’ve been loving it since. The color is stunning and the texture is amazing. If you want to read more just read the full review.

NYX Powder Blush in Taupe

Apparently this is one of the best blushes for contouring for girls with pale skin that you can possibly get. I’ve read the best reviews about this one and since I’m pale and can’t ever get enough products I decided that I needed this in my life, so I went out and bought it. I’ve only tried it once so far, so obviously I can’t give a review on it but I’m excited to fully test this out in the next few days/weeks.

Milani Baked Blush in 08 Corallina

Milani is another brand I’ve heard amazing things of and that I’ve been wanting to try for the longest time and now I finally ordered one of their blushes. Just look at it! How stunning is this! It’s one of the prettiest blushes I’ve ever laid my eyes on and I can’t wait to try it out because this literally just came in today. It’s the most stunning coral blush and I’m beyond excited to give this a good swirl.

This already completes my little haul. Hope you enjoyed reading it.

Have you bought anything lately?

My Spring/Summer Faves: Favorite Eyeshadows

It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for another one of my spring/summer faves. In case you’ve missed lasts Tuesday’s post you can check it out here. Today I will introduce my favorite spring/summer eyeshadow to you. For an every day look I usually prefer more neutral colors but every once in a while I like to spice up my look by adding some radiant colors and what better time to do that than summer?

The one on the left is Firecracker by May and the one on the right is a mini palette by Artdeco. Not only do both of them come in some of the cutest packages ever but they also are very radiant and strong colors.

As the name already lets you predict it this one is a pretty red color with a little hint of orange. It’s absolutely gorgeous and great to add a little color to brighten up any look.

The Artdeco Pallette

This pallette includes a light blue shade and brown shade, which reminds me very much of bronzer. Both colors are lovely and you can create such pretty looks with it. What I really like about them is, that they are very shimmery and strongly pigmented.

So these are my favorite eyeshadows to use in spring and summer. What are yours?

Happy Tuesday! XX
