Art Deco Glam Vintage

Art Deco have launched their Christmas collection called Glam Vintage. Inspired by the Great Gatsby the packaging is embossed with retro vintage style patterns and the product containers are shaped in classic 20's style.

It's for Christmas so as you can imagine it's pretty sparkly. If glitter is not your thing this might not be of interest.
 I've picked out my favourites from the collection..

Glam Vintage Blusher-£25.00

I really like the colours in this palette. A trio of pinks with a natural sheen finish (no glitter).
 The colours come up lighter than they appear in the palette. 
The lightest is a a baby pink with a gold shot through it, middle colour is a rosy pink with the same gold under tone and the third colour is a damson pink. 
 The colours give a radiant glow but are not shimmery or glittery.
I have the darkest colour on here and it comes up pretty natural. A great colour for a wintery, rosy tint.

Sometimes at Christmas it's nice to wear a darker, vampy lip and a nude eye. The eye still needs a little bit of something and Art Deco have a shimmer cream. This can be used on the eyes or as a highlighter.
The shimmer creams come in two colours of moonlight or brown and are £10.25 each.
These are obviously cream but they have a thin gloss/cream texture and don't have any sticky feel to them.
I used my finger to sweep them over my bare eyelid but you could use a synthetic firm brush. You could wear these on top of another cream base or push them on top of a powder eye shadow.
They give a really pretty delicate sparkle to the eye.
These do crease as most cream shadows do but if worn on it's own you can't see the creasing.

Moonlight Shimmer Cream
For the skin they have an illuminating fluid for £15.00. It has a soft gold tint that would suit a fair to medium skin tone as a highlighter.
 Mix this in with your regular liquid foundation or apply using a small buffing brush to the high points of the face for a highlight.

You can get hold of these bits and more from Debenhams and they actually have a sale on at the moment too.
