ArtDeco is now in Beauty Bar!

I can't think about ArtDeco makeup without being nostalgic. I first discovered it when I was a poor college student somewhere in Padre Faura. I was just starting my blog then and didn't have that much money to build my makeup collection. I didn't want to buy the usual drugstore fodder because I wanted to invest in the good stuff, but I couldn't afford the high end brands either. 

ArtDeco, a cosmetics brand from Germany, was my best solution. The products felt consistently high-end, but the price was quite affordable. Most of the items were less than P600; the face makeup topped at around P1,200. I remember that I bought the foundation, eyeshadows, concealer, blush, and lip gloss before! They were worth all the saving I had to do. :P

Makeup wonderland

So, I hope you understand why I'm super psyched that ArtDeco is back in the Philippines. I was bummed when they left two years ago, but now the brand is back with the complete line at the same affordable prices. I was actually expecting that ArtDeco would be more expensive since Beauty Bar (of SSI) brought them in but that's not the case.

Here's a mini-tour of the ArtDeco stand in Beauty Bar, Greenbelt 5!

The eyeshadows are to die for! The're only P350 each too.

Brushes are affordable too, with most of them at less than P500

Some of the best eyeliners I've ever tried - super soft and opaque at only P550 

Face base

The folks at Beauty Bar gave the bloggers a generous bag full of ArtDeco goodies, but I had to buy one of my fave concealers - the Camouflage Cream - and two more eyeshadows for good measure. :P I'm also eyeing their orange lipstick, but that's a purchase for another day!

So, what do you think of ArtDeco? Anything you wanna try? I'll be reviewing the products I have soon, just let me know what you're most interested in!

super excited for this, Liz! besides that gorgeous lip color you swiped for me, i'm really curious about the eyeshadows. i'm currently looking for a good powder i can use for my eyebrows and it looks like they have a great shade collection. not so happy with the shades i've seen on the market so far eh, and some are out of my budget range. will definitely check this out soon. :)

I'm interested in everything that you've got! Dazzling eyeshadow colors! If am not mistaken, they have "nail polishes" din di po ba?

Hi Den! Oh perfect, you'll love the eyebrow shades at ArtDeco! Want to get one for myself too, pero when I buy the bigger customizable palette na lang.

Hi Jennifer - yes they do! Super nice shades!

I saw this at Beauty Bar a week (or two?) ago and I did a double take on the price tags; they are wallet/ATM-friendly. I got the Camouflage Cream too and it's great :D

what can you say about the staying power of art deco's eye shadows? have you tried their eyelid primer? ive heard mixed reviews about it! :)

I hauled ArtDeco e/s when I was in Germany and I love 'em! For the price, the quality is superb and the color range is vast. But I have to say Wet N Wild e/s are hands down, the best drugstore e/s in terms of value for money

Woohooo! They're back! I'm glad you posted this review. Just took a chance and googled artdeco philippines and your blog entry came out. Their camouflage creme is the best concealer for me. Was wondering why it's not used much in videos or blogs i read. Feeling a bit sad too thinking i can never buy one anymore (yeah, attached to my makeup, haha!). Thanks for this! It's within reach!
