ARTDECO Bronzing Collection for Summer - Tribal Sunset

It's only March but as soon as I received a sample of the latest collection from ARTDECO - Tribal Sunset, I was immediately whisked away to thoughts of exotic and far flung destinations. This really did put a smile on my face and bring a little ray of sunshine into an otherwise dull and dreary day.

I'm a huge fan of ARTDECO - highly pigmented and hard workings formulas manufactured in Germany and available at very reasonable pricing over here. I've always been a fan of the brand and often felt that they're highly under-rated and don't get as much love as they should on these shores.

They've been playing a blinder recently with their fantastic collaborations with Dita Von Teese and more recently their gorgeous Butterfly Dreams release. Tribal Sunset is yet again upping the game and I am completely head over heels for it.

Just how gorgeous is the teaser promo image below?!

The packaging as ever with all ARTDECO products is amazing - durable, sturdy and pretty to look at, but the Tribal Sunset collection is just sumptuous - just look at the technicolour glory that is Beauty Box, Blusher and Bronzing Compact below, look at it all colourful and shiny and well, all round gorgeous and pretty!

I could go on and on about how lovely the packaging is, but they say a picture is worth a 1,000 words, so I'll let the pics below speak for themselves

All of the products in the collection have an African-inspired ethnic design and were created for eyes, cheeks and decollete to give a natural and sun kissed glow for radiant looking summer skin.

Bronzing Powder Compact - €29.95

The Bronzing Compact I have is in Shade No. 2 - "Tribal Bronzing"

It's absolutely massive and contains a huge 18g of product!

Tribal Bronzing is a gorgeous shimmery golden bronze shade which is subtle enough for us pale skinned Irish gals to pull off, or you can layer it for a much more intense look.

Bronzing Glow Blusher in "Sun Dance" - €25.65

Three flattering and universal shades suitable for all skintones 

Gorgeous complementing shades - perfect for those with a porcelain complexion to give a radiant, sun kissed  glow. Buttery soft and richly pigmented - I love this!

Baked Eyeshadow in No. 18 "Marbled Brown" - €12.30

There will be 4 baked eyeshadows in the range and the one I received is No. 18 "Marbled Brown"

Other eyeshadows from the range:

These are VERY similar to MAC's Mineralize Shadows - same marbled effect, just as highly pigmented but at a lower price point - what's not to love!

This shadow is a beautiful bronze shade with flecks of gold, brown and copper. It gives a lovely metallic, shimmery effect when applied. Wet it for a more intense look!

Beauty Box & Illuminating Shimmer Cream in No. 07 "Bronzed Glow" - €9.45 & €10.85

Here is two separate products  - the first being the magnetized Beauty Box adorned with the beautiful ethnic tribal print as with the rest of the collection. The separate pan is a magnetized illuminating shimmer cream which you can simply pop into the Beauty Box at a click!

You can also customize the Beauty Box to use with other 

ARTDECO pans to take on the go with you. It contains a handy 

mirror and snaps firmly shut.

The shimmer cream I received in Bronzed Glow is a rich bronze 

shade which is highly pigmented - so a light hand is needed with 

this to add a touch of sun to your look. Darker skinned girls can get

 away with using more of this and it would look fantastic as a 

 highlighter on dark skintones.

Hydra Lip Booster in No. 37 "Translucent Baby Rose" -  €13.00

Lovely creamy gloss in a perfect day time nude shade, flattering on all skin tones.

Comes with a doe foot applicator wand.

Leaves your lips feeling really moisturised and imparts intense shine and gloss to your lips.

Art Couture Lipstick in No. 220 "Cream Orange Pastel" -  €19.15

Such a fantastic shade for summer! It's a gorgeous hot coral / orange. Not so orange that's it's unwearable, it's a pastel cream that still packs a punch of colour!

I'd call this a beautiful Tangerine shade - so on trend and hot for summer! 

Like all other ARTDECO lipsticks it's rich and creamy, highly pigmented and has great longevity. Expect to get 6+ hours whilst wearing this.

Art Couture Lipstick in No. 352 "Pearl Hypnotic Bronze" -  €19.15

This lipstick like the one above comes in a smart black metal casing which feels very solid and snaps closed.

Elegant and luxurious feeling. I like. A lot.

Shade Pearl Hypnotic Bronze has a slight metallic / frosted texture to it. It's a great summer nude shade - would look great with a  "healthy glow".

I'll definitely be bringing this along with me on my holidays this summer as it's a lovely, wearable shade.

I really am loving these latest offerings from ARTDECO. They're a luxury brand without the hefty price tag and they're not stocked in most Debenhams around the country. A little birdie tells me we may even be able to buy online soon too! :D

Tribal Sunset will be released mid April throughout selected Debenhams and salons.
