Art Deco Glam Deluxe collection


Hi everyone. 
Today's post will be very glam :) Why? Because I have been trying out a couple of gorgeous Art Deco products from the Glam Deluxe collection.  It is all about glitter, shimmer and light reflecting effects.
The full collection includes 3 Lipglosses, 2 Liquid Liners, 2 Shimmer Creams, a Blusher, 6 Refill Eyeshadows, 6 Couture Eyeshadows, a Soft Waterproof  Eyeliner, an Eye Designer Applicator Pen, and a Magnetic Beauty Box. All available from tenderlovingskincare.co.uk

All the shades in the collection are perfect for the party season, very glamorous and sparkly!
The packaging and very innovative designs make the products unique and eye catching.

Now... the funny part. When I got the products, I didn't have a clue about the Eye Designer Applicator  and what it was for :) I know... Silly me. I looked at it and thought: It must be an eyeliner, but... when I tried swatching it - it stayed dry... I soon realised that all I had to do was to use the sponge applicators for the eyeshadow cartridges. Since I got two shades, I placed them on the double sided applicator for good, so now I have a perfect smokey eye kit in a pen! Brilliant! It is such a space saver.

The quality of the eyeshadows is amazing and they stay in place all day without a primer.
The formula is light, very pigmented and there is no product fallout  during or after application.
Shade 245 is a lovely taupe  brown with a subtle shimmer and shade 216 is a beautifully pigmented light rose gold shade- very shimmery, but not glittery, so it doesn't leave a glittery mess.
Both shades are very easy to apply and look lovely together. The sponge applicators make smokey eye easy peasy and hassle free. The trio would be perfect for somebody who is totally new to eyeshadow application, because you simply can't go wrong with it!
I applied the gold shade allover my lid and added a little bit of brown in the outer corner and the crease.

I also used the Shimmer Cream in shade Platinum as a highlight under my brow bone.
The Glam Shimmer Cream is a very glittery multipurpose product, which can be used as a shimmery base for eyeshadows, a highlighter, on top of eyeshadows, or as face and body shimmer.
It feels like a mixture between a gel and very smooth cream and the effect you can achieve with it can be very subtle or dramatic- it is totally up to you. I like to use it sparingly to highlight my cheekbones and also as a base for shimmery eye makeup looks. It is a lovely product and something I haven't tried before. I keep it in the beautiful gold magnetic case and it simply clicks into place. The case comes with a mirror and it is big enough for one Art Deco Shimmer Cream/Camouflage Cream or two Art Deco Eyebrow/Eyeshadow powders.

To add a finishing touch to the party look, I used the Glam Stars Lipgloss in shade 26 Rosy Nude.
I am not a massive fan of lipglosses but I started buying them again :) One thing I hate on my lips is glitter, but... this lipgloss contains very fine glitter particles, so it feels lovely and smooth once applied.
It gives my lips a nice shine, without being sticky and looks very natural and glamorous at the same time.
It made me fall in love with the glossy lip effect allover again :)

Overall, the full collection is absolutely beautiful, perfect for the party season and very unique!
Lovely packaging, amazing quality and pretty shades tick all the boxes for me.

You can find the links to all products and more info below.
I also included swatches and photos of the look I created.

"Double-sided applicator pencil for the refillable Eye Designer Eye Shadow cartridges. Beautifully pigmented Eyeshadow looks can be achieved in minutes thanks to this practical system! The convenient and super easy to handle Eye Designer applicator has two differently shaped, high-quality applicators at each end.  The springy applicators take up the eyeshadow by screwing on the refill and provide a very clean, precise and professional application. With the conical applicator, fine lines can be made accurately and special accents can be added. With the wide applicator, the eyeshadow can be distributed on the entire eyelid."


"Powder eyeshadow cartridges to connect onto the Eye Designer Applicator. The Eye Designer eyeshadows with the new formula do not settle in the eyelid crease and are very long-lasting.Due to the refillable Eye Designer cartridge system, all colours can be combined at will. Nourishing waxes keep the eye area soft and supple. Contains Vitamin E, is water-repellant and fragrance-free"
"Artdeco Glam Stars Lip gloss with extreme shimmer effect.Fine glitter particles create a glamorous effect for the ultimate party look. The lips shine with a wet look and appear fuller."


"Magnetic Box to fit a Shimmer Cream or 2 Eyebrow or Eyeshadow Powders or a Camouflage cream. You can perfectly store your items in the refillable beauty boxes. The Glam Stars Shimmer Cream, Camouflage Creams, Eyebrow and Eyeshadow Powders have a magnetic backing and they just “click” into the beauty boxes for perfect storing.Thanks to the integrated mirror, the ARTDECO Beauty Boxes are ideal when traveling."

"With its smooth gloss particles, the Glam Stars Shimmer Cream provides your eyes, cheeks and décolleté with luxurious shimmer. With a creamy, transparent silky texture it applies evenly and can be as subtle or dramatic as you like. Extremely long lasting effect. Paraben- and fragrance-free. This shimmer cream has a metallic backing so for the ideal storage use the limited edition Beauty Box duo with integrated mirror in exclusive Glam Deluxe Design."

  3. The eye pencil is the same as the old Ruby & Millie eye shaders but the colours are similar detached for the applicator. Interesting.
    Beautiful makeup, as always.
