Review: ARTDECO Summer Miami Collection

When Summer rolls around I am all about bright colours and long-lasting formulation. This Summer, ARTDECO helps me turn up the heat with their new Miami Collection. With trendy eyeliners, waterproof mascaras, sensual lip colours, and colour-rich eye shadow sticks, the limited edition Miami Collection will make creating that sexy beach look effortless.
Today I will be reviewing the Glossy Lip Colour in 16 Glossy Pink Grapefruit and the Long-Lasting Eyeshadow Sticks in 08 Rich Girl and 34 Cruise Ship.
The Glossy Lip Colours come in a lip pencil format with the tip shaped like a lipstick bullet. This makes application effortless. The creamy texture glides on smooth and lasts for hours through drinking and eating. Lips are accentuated and voluminized in one stroke. Retractable, this stick never needs sharpening.
This pencil glides on leaving lips looking very glossy. I find the formula quite sticky on my lips, but I think that is what keeps it on for so long. I apply it at 7am and after breakfast, lunch, and a few coffees I can still see it lingering on my lips. After the glossiness wears off a slight stain is left behind. I really like that there is no scent to this product.
The Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeshadow Sticks apply smoothly, blend easily, and once set do not budge. They are a must have for creating the perfect colour-rich, Summer look. The long-lasting, silky texture combines colour richness with excellent crease-free wear. This retractable eyeshadow stick is perfume-free and mineral oil free.

Rich Girl is a beautiful pink toned champagne that is perfect for a wash of colour over the lid. For days when I'm running late, or just too lazy to get fancy with my makeup, this colour with some mascara gives me a effortlessly natural look.

Cruise Ship is a medium silvered purple that creates the most gorgeous smoky eye. Because of how easily these pencils blend, I can apply this colour, some liner and mascara and in 5 minutes I've got a look that looks like it took way longer to create.

Both of these shades set and last all day without creasing, but remove easily with makeup remover. These have really became a daily go-to product for me.
