Soft Eyeliner Waterproof - Black

I can`t believe no one is talking about this brand. ARTDECO is a German brand, with some pretty solid products. I get it on Beautybay or when I travel to Europe. I picked up one of these eyeliners in Light Teal, which is a tricky color: if the quality is not up to par, it can fade easily and disappear. The ARTDECO liner was soft and buttery (and I had forgotten it in my drawer and did not use it for a year after purchase!) and the color was really pigmented with one swipe. I couldn`t believe how pigmented and shiny it was, and you would never believe from the color on the pen that it could be this full on. I have oily lids, but they stayed as vibrant and smudge-proof from 7am, when I applied it, to 11:30pm when I was ready to wash my face. In winter, when my eyes water like crazy from the dryness and cold, I always use my ARTDECO eyeliners to avoid smudging. Have been purchasing for years now.

PROS: • No transfer • Wide color range • Long wearing, no smudging • Doesn't dry down to a darker shade than in the tube • Full pigmentation in one layer • Pretty comfortable • Unscented CONS: • Gets somewhat crumbly if layered • Color fades throughout the day • Slightly sticky Overall, 7/10. I have the shade 38 Saffron Red.

A lovely SA gave me a sample of this foundation in shade 12(vanilla rose) so that I could try it and decide whether this can be my HG foundation or not.she said that it's going to be dark and that 28 is the right shade for me but they had ran out of lighter shades samples Judging by it's name,I thought Vanilla Rose is going to be light with cool toned,I was wrong and the SA was right about that it's going to be extremely dark for my NC15 skin.when I applied it,I was shocked to see how yellow and dark it is so I had no choice but to apply some to my neck and ears too.after doing that and putting on concealer(Essence 16H in shade 1) and dusting on my favorite WetNWild Reserve Your Cabana Bronzer(it's not really a bronzer,practically it's something between fixing powder and highlighter) I looked good as if I have had a tan About the consistency,it's thick and very creamy and moisturizing.it was the second time I was trying it.first time was during winter and after using AHA for a while.my skin was superdry and flakey.back then I didn't like this foundation.now my skin has got back it's health and isn't that dry anymore.I guess I can call it normal right now(but all in all my skin is usually dehydrated,sensitive and very prone to dermatitis and acne caused by allergy to cosmetics/skincare products),this time this foundation blended well on my skin and looked almost flawless.I usually use a damp beauty blender or a brush to apply my foundations but in this case I felt using my finger tips would be a better idea and after that I used a damp beauty blender for final blends.I loved how moisturizing it felt.it's coverage was great in my book.better than most of my foundations,it didn't settle into pores and evened out my skin.I thought it's going to have a dewy finish but it was more on the natural side.all in all I was very happy with the result But after coming back from a dinner date,I didn't like what I saw in the mirror.not too bad but it looked a bit cakey and I could see powder on top of my face as if my fixing powder wasn't sitting well on it as good as first minutes.the countor lines I had drawed on my nose and cheeks and had blended them,looked not well blended anymore,it had oxidized a bit and looked as if I had a lot of makeup on my face.it also looked a bit oily on my forehead even though I don't have oily skin and I had set it with powder and fixing spray(NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray) all in all not very bad but I expected to see it's totally unchanged after just two hours of sitting behind a table and eating(the same thing of looking cakey after a few hours happens with Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place too) I think it can perform much better without wearing powder on top of it,and if it was the right color match for my skin Another thing I didn't like about it was that it was difficult to remove.after rubbing my face with four cotton pads soaked in Micellar Water and washing my face with a face wash,when I used my toner,it was still some foundation left on my skin! Good point was that it didn't dry out my skin and didn't cause any irritation I'm yet undecided about this foundation.it's 30$ here so it's not cheap.I gave it 4 lippies but actually it's 3.5/5 for me.I'm going to go to another department store that carries out my shade and give it another try
