ARTDECO | Emilio de la Morena Collection - Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee

ARTDECO is a brand you might not have heard a lot about; I don't see many people blogging about it, but I am a big fan - the few products I've tried have really impressed me! Released on June 30th to Farmers is this beautiful collection of products in collaboration with fashion designer Emilio de la Morena. Here's the low down on some of the products you can find as part of this new limited edition release.

Blush Couture* | NZD $32.00
I have a very similar product from ARTDECO and I really love it (see the review of it here), this one is no different. On Monday I featured it in my Most Loved for June, and I think if you buy one thing from this release, I'd make it this one! It's a light blush that goes on with a sheer wash of colour, but you can build upon it if you like. I love the natural finish to it and the subtle shimmer means it is very flattering on the skin.

Mono Eyeshadows in 60, 81, 95A + 109* | NZD $9.00 each
One of the unique things that ARTDECO offer are their magnetic eyeshadows, blushes and even brow powders. I actually already have a full quad from them (see it here with swatches), and the eyeshadows are very impressive. This release comes with four quite unusual shades and ones I wouldn't pick out personally, but are fun to experiment with. 60 is a light mint green, 81 is a violet blue, 95A is a pearly pink and 109 is a pearly white. All of them have a shimmer finish to them and I don't think they have the best pigmentation (compared to the other shadows I've tried), but that might be down to how light the shades are.

As part of this collection you receive the Beauty Box Quattro free when you purchase four eyeshadows (and I don't think it has to be the four from this particular collection). This will fit 8 eyeshadows in it, or five eyeshadows and a blush, making it perfect for customising when you are travelling.

ARTDECO | Emilio de la Morena Collection - Review + Swatches - Volume Supreme Mascara - CassandraMyee

Volume Supreme Mascara* | NZD $28.00
I'm yet to try this mascara out because I have far too many open at the moment (beauty blogger problems...) The mascara promises to separate all the lashes, even the smallest ones with the specially designed wand. Once I crack this open I might have to do a post on it.

ARTDECO | Emilio de la Morena Collection - Review + Swatches - Art Couture Classic Lipstick in 268 - CassandraMyee

Art Couture Lipstick in 268* | NZD $32.00
There are four lipsticks total released in this collection; the Perfect Colour Lipsticks in two shades (NZD $25.00), and two Art Couture Lipsticks. The other shade in this range is 290, which is described as a 'delicate apricot'. 268 is definitely my kind of shade and it has a balmy, moisturising texture with a lovely colour pay off. The packaging of these lipsticks also feels very expensive, with a weighty metal casing that has that perfect click sound when you put the lid on.

ARTDECO | Emilio de la Morena Collection - Review + Swatches - Nail Lacquer in 605 - CassandraMyee

Art Couture Nail Lacquer in 605* | NZD $19.00
There are six nail polishe shades in this range, all colours that match the packaging and the other shades in this collection - it's very cohesive! I was sent 605 which is a sheer white shade. I haven't used it on the nails yet but I imagine it is going to be quite a light shade, and not totally opaque.

As I said earlier, this was released on Tuesday in Farmers nationwide, so it is well worth checking out your closest ARTDECO stand!
