Dark Autumnal Berry Lips by Artdeco

10/26/2015



I've introduced my top picks from the Artdeco Mystical Forest A/W '15 Collection (here) and I've mainly focused on everything berry/wine hued. Artdeco is one of those brands I felt immediately drawn to due to the aesthetic which suits my personal taste - black, elegant, simple but not plain. 

LE collections they bring out are often eye catching but this one in particular felt like something I was lacking in my makeup and - you can't deny these do look gorgeous! I've left the fabulous Art Couture Nail Lacquer for another post and this time a lip liner and two lipsticks are in focus.

I'll start with my favorite piece out of this entire collection which is the Artdeco Art Couture Lipstick in Velvet Dark Queen 675. This literally exudes luxury - from its amazingly made bullet, heavy and cold and with that satisfying 'click' sound to the fantastic formula and pigmentation. The color is sensational with its wine, warm burgundy deep goodness.

I love how borderline vampy it looks but it never washes me out. I love how thick, pigmented and creamy it is - not too glossy but definitely comfortable to wear. I get around 3h of wear due to its creamy formulation after which a stain sets in. There's no bleeding into fine lines and there is a light vanilla-like scent to it.

  • Predstavila sam vam najbolje komade iz Artdeco Mystical Forest kolekcije za jesen/zimu '15 (ovdje) i primjetiti cete da sam se fokusirala na boju vina i bobicastog voca. Artdeco je jedan od brendova koji me odmah privukao estetikom svojih proizvoda koji se cistim linijama, elegantnom crnom bojom i jednostavnoscu koja nije obicna definitivno uklapaju u ono sto inace preferiram. 
  • LE kolekcije ovog brenda su redovito lijepe ali konkretno ova kolekcija mi je bas zapala za oko. U njoj sam prepoznala komade koji mi nedostaju u licnoj kolekciji a tesko je poreci i da je sve izuzetno lijepo i privlacno. Ostavila sam krasni Art Couture lak za nokte kao temu jednog od narednih postova a ovog puta je fokus na olovci i dva ruza za usne.
  • Zapoceti cu meni najdrazim proizvodom iz cijele Mystical Forest kolekcije. Radi se o Artdeco Art Couture ruzu u nijansi Velvet Dark Queen 675 - apsolutni luksuz od kvalitetno izradjenog pakovanja, teskog i hladnog na dodir uz onaj neobicno prijatni 'klik' po zatvaranju pa do fantasticne formulacije i pigmentacije. Boja je senzacionalna u toplijim tonovima vina.
  • Dopada mi se sto je djelimicno vamp ali ne previse - nikada mi ten nije ucinio blijedim. Odlicno je pigmentiran, guste i kremaste teksture - nije sjajnog finisha na usnama ali ga je jako ugodno nositi. Meni traje cca 3h upravo zbog kremaste formulacije, nakon cega ostaje stain. Ne uvlaci se u sitne borice oko usana a primjetila sam da ima blagi miris vanilije.



Artdeco Perfect Color Lipstick in Mystical Heart 25A is a cooler-toned autumnal lipstick which works well with both, cool and warm complexion undertones (it's not too heavy on the cool side). Again, the bullet is very well made but the lipstick doesn't seem to be scented this time. 

To me, this is a more wearable, daytime appropriate version of the autumnal lippie since the texture is even more hydrating, more moisturizing and nourishing. You get a bit sheerer application but the pigmentation isn't any lesser - you just get a more prominent sheen (no shimmer in any of these lipsticks!). 

You would need a lip liner underneath to define the lip line - the bullet is rounded, texture buttery so you don't exactly get a precise application. Longevity is approx 2h so reapplying will happen. Basically, this is a low-maintenance type of lipstick in terms that you can apply it without a mirror, it goes along with everything and makes lips look full and lush.

  • Artdeco Perfect Color ruz u nijansi Mystical Heart 25A je pravi jesenji ljepotan nesto hladnijeg podtona koji srecom nije previse izrazen tako da ce lijepo pristajati svakom tenu (bez obzira na topli ili hladni podton). Ponovo cu spomenuti kvalitetnu izradu pakovanja no ruz iz ove linije izgleda da nema mirisa, za razliku od prethodnika.
  • Prema mojoj procjeni, ovo je nesto nosivija i dnevnoj sminki prilagodjenija verzija jesenjeg ruza. Tekstura mu je jako hidratantna, njegujuca pa cak i hranljiva spram usana. Po nanosenju je vise sheer ali ne zbog imalo losije pigmentacije - toliko je hidratantan da to utice na krajnji efekt na usnama (ima blagi sjajni finish ali nema shimmera).
  • Ispod njega bi olovka za usne bila potrebna ukoliko zelite precizno iscrtane ivice - oblik ruza je zaobljen, tekstura kremasta tako da je teze iscrtati usne sa njim. Trajnost iznosi cca 2h tako da mozete ocekivati da cete ga iznova nanositi tokom dana. U sustini, ovo je nezahtjevan ruz u smislu da ga mozete koristiti i bez ogledala, slaze se uz vecinu kozmetickih kombinacija te cini usne punim i njegovanim.



Finally, there's the Artdeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof in Mystical Heart 79. I have rekindled my love affair with lip liners thanks to Essence lip liners and this Artdeco gem has just made this decision firmer. 

Sure, my usually dehydrated and chapped lips need a scrub and lip balm prior to wearing it but it's so worth the prep! It's such a beautiful plummy shade and quite long lasting - I usually get approx 5h+ of wear. 

I do feel light tightening feeling after the 3h mark but nothing too uncomfortable. It applies evenly and I'm actually in love with it since it has uplifted my everyday nude-toned makeup. 

Every single item from this post gets my stamp of approval, they really are worth the purchase and you just need to know what you prefer - if longevity is a priority than lip liner is your best bet. If you're the one to prefer moisturizing and wearable autumnal lippies than the Perfect Color one is for you whilst the Art Couture lipstick is made for those wanting to leave an impression.

  • Za kraj imamo Artdeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof u nijansi Mystical Heart 79. Zahvaljujuci Essence olovkama za usne sam se ponovo vratila ovim proizvodima a Artdeco olovka je samo naknadno utvrdila moje visoko misljenje o njima.
  • Naravno da je mojim hronicno isusenim usnama potreban njezni piling i sloj balzama za usne prije nego upotrijebim olovku no stvarno je rezultat vrijedan prethodne pripreme! Mnogo mi se dopada ova suptilna boja sljive  koja je ujedno i trajna. Obicno mi na usnama traje 5h, nerijetko i duze. Nakon 3h nosenja osjetim blago zatezanje ali nije neprijatno. 
  • Olovka se ravnomjerno nanosi i cak sam se beznadezno zaljubila u nju posto je unijela malo boje u moje svakodnevne look-ove koji su inace u nude teritoriji.
  • Svaki komad iz Mystical Forest kolekcije od mene dobija cistu peticu, uistinu su vrijedni potrosenog novca a vama samo preostaje da procijenite sta vama vise odgovara. Ako vam je trajnost prioritet onda je olovka za usne savrsena. Ukoliko vise volite udobne, hidratantne formulacije Perfect Color ruz je idealan dok je pak Art Couture ruz pun pogodak za makeup po kojem ce vas pamtiti.
