Artdeco has beautiful makeup! Whenever I come across their counter I can't stop trying out those gorgeous shades of lipsticks, eyeshadows, nail colors - what not. They have one of the best nail polishes shades in my opinion with a wide range of shades to choose from. Moreover they keep updating the shades frequently hence everytime I visit their counter I always find something new. Same goes for the lipsticks and eyeshadows. This time when I came across their counter I thought I would try a few of their eyeshadows. I was looking for a shade that I could apply everyday but also something that would look beautiful both during the day and at night. I was more inclined towards buying earthy tones this time for a change as I usually go for pale pinks and neutral shades.
My pick was Artdeco Mineral Baked Eyeshadow in 'Bright Sand'. It comes in a round plastic packaging with Artdeco logo printed on the transparent lid. Inside is one of the most gorgeous shades of brown I have ever purchased. This eyeshadow is exceptionally brilliant thanks to higher percentage of pearl pigments. I love the texture, it is smooth and amazingly soft which makes it so easy to apply. This makes every application even and beautiful. Though I have always been inclined towards eye shadows that are matte since I prefer a more natural look. I can't deny the fact that it is so hard for me to resist an eyeshadow that shimmers! Apart from having a beautiful pinkish tone to this brown 'Bright Sand' eyeshadow (perfect combination) I love how brilliant yet elegant the eyeshadow makes your eyes look because of the rich pigmentation.
I plan to use this shade for everyday makeup. I think it looks beautiful during day light. I do not like a lot of color on my eyelids during day time. I personally think it just looks unnatural especially if you have to work in a professional environment like I do. If I want to play with colors I would rather go for color eyeliners. To ensure eye makeup durability and brilliant color intensity Artdeco Eyeshadow Base is the perfect primer. So whenever I'm in the mood of some magical eye makeup I would love to apply 'Bright Sand' eyeshadow over the primer. However, I do not prefer a primer during the day or on casual outings. It just adds to the overall makeup time and I like to (have to!) get ready as fast as I can.
My final verdict is here. Artdeco Mineral Baked Eyeshadow in Bright Sand is a gorgeous shade. If you come across Artdeco counter do give it a try and let me know how did you find it. On my next visit to Artdeco makeup counters I will make sure I try out different shades not only from the Mineral Baked Eyeshadows but also from their different range of eyeshadows (the have plenty!). Moreover, I also plan to try out their fluid foundations and BB creams. If you follow my blog regularly you would know that I have been using L'Oreal True Match Foundation for sometime now. Though I am satisfied with this foundation I still would like to try and see how Artdeco's Foundation range works on my skin keeping in mind the fact that all the other products that I have purchased from this brand have been amazing.
