Art Deco Holiday Collection 2008: Art Deco Glamour Avantgarde

The new Art Deco Holiday Collection entitled Glamour Avantgarde has launched on the Art Deco website. It all looks rather stunning and the Muse feels quite a bit of excitement over all the gorgeous goodies!

Where as many collections concentrate on either a gold or a silver look for the holidays, Art Deco took it a step further and introduced both gold and silver to create a stunning, contrasting, shimmering look that totally appeals to this Muse! I do think I might splurge out on a majority of this collect as I truly can’t resist the shimmer and just the overall chic, elegant feel of it. The stars of the collection are a highlighting loose powder and a highlighting pressed powder. The pressed powder is made up of dusky rose and brown shimmering shades and is quite reminiscent of the powder included with the new Magie Deco Holiday Coffret which I’ll be reviewing for you shortly. The Art Deco Glamorous Mineral Powder is supposely a warm apricot shade with a subtle shimmer that creates a warm glow to your face.

The following items are being released with Art Deco Glamour Avantgarde:

3 Art Deco Shimmering Shadows
Glam Granite Grey
Glam Red Violet
Glam Petrol Blue

1 New Shade of Art Deco Glam Stars Liquid Eye Liners

2 Shades of Art Deco Diamond Lashes

4 Shades of Art Deco Shimmer Lipstick
Fresh Fuchsia Shimmer
Rose Shimmer
Pomegranate Shimmer
Nude Shimmer

Art Deco Glamorous Highlighter

Art Deco Glamorous Mineral Powder

As you can see the collection looks stunning! I can’t verify prices on any of the items as the site never lists them. Sadly, the entire collection is available within Europe only (Sweden, Germany, Etc…) so if you’re wanting it you’ll have to arrange for a CP on MUA or a cosmetic forum. I do think it’s well worth hunting out as it looks quite lovely. You may just see a review of this from the Muse shortly as I do see a few items that have caught my fancy!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    hi there, for the majo palettes, its said to be used as a base
    but i never use it as i dont think its very good =_=;;

    so i rather just keep it looking pretty ^_^

  • birkinbagbeauty

    Gorgeous gorgeous, I might check them out soon…(yup, I live in Europe)

  • Hey, muse!
    Just wanted to say that artdeco is also available in most of south america. I love this brand. It’s dirt cheap and very good.

  • Paige

    I heard good things about their eye primer. Too bad it’s not available in the states. I almost want to ask my brother-in-law, who is always traveling to Europe on business, to pick me up some of this collection. The collection does look nice. Especially, the highlighter compact:) Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! I’m looking forward to spending the day with my family:)

  • Kimberly

    Hi Muse, just wondering where do you buy their cosmetics? I went to their site but I didn’t see any way to place an order.

  • Vivian

    hmm, those look promising, but it’s only available in Europe..

    btw, Muse, what is a CP and how do we commoners get someone to buy cosmetics from another continent that we don’t have here in North America? thanks for the info

  • the Muse

    hi yumeko!

    Thanks hun! I always wondered if they rec’ed it as a highbrow highlighter or a base…I agree working with it as a base is crap πŸ˜›

  • the Muse

    hello there Vitσria !

    Interesting! I hadn’t known that!

    Thanks for telling me as I always thought it was exclusive to Europe. Interesting, very interesting πŸ™‚

    I agree! Inexpensive and awesome quality πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the comment!

  • the Muse

    hey paige!

    The eye primer is fab. I should really get another jar and review..I ran out a while ago!

    It’s quite a nice price and the quality is grand πŸ™‚

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours too paige thanks so much for the well wishes for the Holiday πŸ™‚

    I’m looking forward to it too!

  • the Muse

    hello kimberly..I had mentioned in this post to get a CP πŸ™‚ Read to the bottom and you’ll see where I explain that. This is the best way to nab some of this!

    You can’t order from the site as they aren’t available within the US.

    Hope this helps!

  • the Muse

    hiya vivian!

    Someone mentioned SA too πŸ™‚

    Normally visiting MUA and makeup forums meeting other people from different countries, chatting and such you can arrange to have them purchase items from you, ship them over, and you pay via paypal or you offer to buy them something of equal value and ship it to them πŸ™‚

    like a swap πŸ™‚

    Hope this makes sense!

    I rely heavily on friends that live in England and Japan for cps but sometimes they can’t do it so I just head onto forum and ask nicely and normally I can get a nice person to cp for me πŸ™‚

    cp=custom purchase!

    Hope this helps!

  • Anitacska

    Oooh, I love the highlighter compact! I live in the UK, but haven’t seen this brand here yet. Might ask my sister (she lives in Hungary) if she can track it down for me.

  • Mizz x

    Hiya! Omg.. I’m trying to get that highlighter from Germany’s Ebay.. it looks sooo good in the pic! Didn’t seem too expensive, about 20$. As if I need more highlighters. lol.

  • the Muse

    hi anitascka πŸ™‚

    isn’t it lovely? She probably will find it in Hungary…! I really want the highlighter and possibly the loose powder πŸ™‚

  • the Muse

    hi miss x!

    lol good luck hun! not a bad price at all πŸ™‚

    lord I say the same I really need this..but it never stops me lol!

  • Phyrra

    I’d love to see you review this collection, it looks lovely. I’m curious about how the staying power is on the makeup.

  • Kimberly

    Hi again Muse & thanks so much for the help! Between you & Kathi over @ Lotus Palace I'm really lemming for a lot more Asian brand of cosmetics lately, they are so unlike anything available here in in U.S.

  • the Muse

    hey kimberly πŸ™‚
    my pleasure!

    I truly love items not available in the US, quality is so much better isn’t it? and very unique too!
