German pro makeup brand Artdeco Cosmetics, is something I only recently discovered. The packaging and range instantly got me hooked. I went for this limited edition bronzing glow blusher and a hydra lip colour to test out the quality.
|Hydra Lip Colour (08 soft coral) and bronzing glow blusher|
The lip colour is very hydrating as the name suggests. I decided on the hydra because my lips can get quite dry so this is always nice to use, containing candelilla wax for a smooth shiny finish. Soft coral is actually more of a pink and the colour is very pigmented.

The Bronzing Glow Blusher is part of the limited edition 'Tribal Sunset Bronzing Collection'. I must admit the pretty colours in this thing were very attracting! A mix of fuchsia, coral and bronze, it has a very subtle shimmer to it which gives off a lovely soft glow.

Hydra lip colour - Hydrating, pigmented, nice packaging, SPF 15
Bronzing glow blusher - contains vitamins C & E, paraben, fragrance, lanolin and mineral oil-free
Artdeco - Cruelty free
Difficult to view the products in the UK. (Available online at Debenhams but haven't seen them in store)
Overall I am impressed with these products so far and keen to try out more from Artdeco, in particular their pure minerals and if you're into eye shadows they do some great palettes.
