Magic Fix od ArtDeco.

O ile muszę przyznać, że Arteco osiągnęło idealną czerwień przy zachowaniu cudownej jedwabistej konzystencji jeśli bierzemy pod uwagę szminki… mówię tu o Dita von Teese nr. 620, który nie dawno pojawił się na polskim rynku… jednak Magic Fix ich produkcji nie jest jeszcze ideałem.

Wypróbowałam go.

Fakt, sprawia, że szminka utrzymuje się dłużej. Zapobiega rozmazywaniu się jej i dzięki niemu zostawiamy mniej śladów na szkle etc. Mówię mniej, gdyż w brew temu co mówi ulotka, nie eliminuje on tego problemu całkowicie… ślady są , ale ich intensywność zmiejsza się o 80-90%.

Jest spełnieniem marzeń jeśli mówimy o utrwaleniu szminki… ale jeśli planujesz wybrać się na randkę to odradzam użycie tego specyfiku… no chyba, że Twój partner lubi się kleić do Twoich ust w sensie dosłownym. Tak, kleić. Fix sprawia, że usta stają się klejące, a przynajmniej w.g. mnie nie jest to cecha pożądana przy całowaniu. Większość facetów tego nie lubi, dodatkowo fix rujnuje smak i zapach pomadki (po prostu usuwa je).

Wybór należy do Ciebie. Polecam Magic Fix a długie dni w biurze, gdzie pamiętanie o odświeżeniu szminki nie należy do priorytetów… a odradzam jeśli masz w planach romantyczny wieczór.

ArtDeco Collection – Dita von Teese Classics

Recently ArtDeco released the long awaited Dita von Teese collection. For those not aware, Dita is queen of burlesque. Please do not confuse burlesque with stripping as the only part they have in common is undressing… Burlesque, at least to me, is art….whereas stripping is not so much.

In one of the interviews Dita says the collection has been made to get all the things she would want in makeup into one comprehensive set. I believe this is very much true. If you are looking for the fabulous 40’s/50’s or pinup look… this is definitely something for you.

So far, I have the gel eyeliner, lipliner (06) and lipstick (620) out of this collection. And I’m looking forward buying more. In fact I pray ArtDeco adds it to their permanent selection as I would hate to discover that I can’t find replacements after running out. They are simply too good.

The 620 lipstick is a true carmine red…. I have found no other, not even from those costing close to 100$ a piece, that would really be carmine on me. They others oscillated between raspberry, carrot and red beet shades – very disappointing to me. But 620 IS JUST WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR.

The gel eyeliner is a very interesting solution. It does take practice to get the hang of using the brush to put the gel on, but once you do the effects are simply great.

Having said this, I have to reflect on the whole collection which I have seen in one of the Douglas stores (partial versions available in Sephora). It contains very beautiful pressed powder that gives skin a slight porcelain look, a set of eyeshadows that can’t be replaced ;- ), and nail polishes.

So girls, go and grab yours! It’s really worth it.

ps. there is an autumn addition to the collection coming out in September/October depending on your location

Magix Fix from ArtDeco.

As much as I admit that ArtDeco has achieved the ideal red lipstick with a most exquisite velvety feel…I’m speaking here of Dita von Teese no. 620 lipstick released by them recently.. I should also point out that they have made a Magic Fix for lipsticks.

 

I have tried it.

It does make the lipstick stay on longer. It does keep it from running and it does make it leave less stains on glass, etc. I say less, because it is not 100% fail-safe and some stains do appear… they are about 90% less evident, but they are still there.

It is a dream come true in terms of life of lipstick on your lips, but…. if you plan to go on a date forget it… unless your partner likes sticky lips. Yes, sticky lips. The fix makes your lips feel really sticky and that is quite uncomfortable when it comes to kissing. Most guys don’t like that, plus it ruins the great flavor and smell the un-fixed lipstick has on your lips.

So the choice is really yours. I would recommend it for a long day at the office, but not for a cozy evening with your man 😉
