|ARTDECO Perfect Colour Lipstick No.16 Soft Coral|
ARTDECO Perfect Colour is a nourishing lip colour which provides lasting colour throughout the day. Today I'm reviewing the shade Soft Coral. Perfect for the Spring / Summer months we are hoping to come across. I've already got colour shades in mind for clothes, now onto the make-up, corals and pops of brights, I'm hoping to contribute to the overall look. This one so far looks to be one that is in the running...or is it?
About ARTDECO : Germany’s number one cosmetics brand, ARTDECO is a high quality line of cosmetics that let you achieve a flawless look, everyday. ARTDECO is new to the UK and has already been used backstage on celebrities at Dancing On Ice and has quickly gained a celebrity following.
Texture : There's no denying this is very creamy texture with great pigmenation. It's smooth and silky.
Longevity : With me and creamy lipsticks they don't last as long as matte. It lasted around an hour or so, which involved a lot of talking.
Ingredients : Paraffinum Liquidum (Mineral Oil), Lanolin, Lanolin Oil, Ozokerite, Propylene Glycol Ricinoleate, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Octyldodecanol, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Paraffin, Isopropyl Myristate, Diisostearyl Malate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Cetyl Acetate, Acetylated Lanolin Alcohol, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Cetyl Alcohol, Oleyl Alcohol, Cetyl Ricinoleate, Benzophenone-3, Silica, Cellulose, Glyceryl Oleate, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Citric Acid, Propylparaben, Talc, Parfum (Fragrance), Bha, Bht, [+/- (May Contain) Mica, Ci 15850 (Red 6), Ci 15850 (Red 7 Lake), Ci 15985 (Yellow 6), Ci 15985 (Yellow 6 Lake), Ci 17200 (Red 33), Ci 17200 (Red 33 Lake), Ci 19140 (Yellow 5), Ci 19140 (Yellow 5 Lake), Ci 42090 (Blue 1), Ci 42090 (Blue 1 Lake), Ci 45380 (Red 22), Ci 45380 (Red 22 Lake), Ci 45410 (Red 28), Ci 45410 (Red 27 Lake), Ci 47005 (Yellow 10), Ci 73360 (Red 30), Ci 73360 (Red 30 Lake), Ci 75470 (Carmine), Ci 77491 (Iron Oxides), Ci 77492 (Iron Oxides), Ci 77499 (Iron Oxides), Ci 77891 (Titanium Dioxide)]
Packaging : The black metal casing, helps to protect Perfect Colour Lipstick from any heat/sun damage. It's always the worst when you end up with a melted lipstick.
Overall : I like that they have though about any humidity that can occur with this lipstick, protecting it, is great, saves any mishap. The colour is beautiful, soft, wearable and gives a nice sheen. I used about 2-3 coats, I found one gave a slight lipstain, second gave me a nice even pop of coral, the third made it stand out more but was probably what made it too creamy. I wouldn't rule out ARTDECO but it's a shame about the mineral oil ingredient.
