It’s always nice to discover new brands and their products; ARTDECO x Claudia Schiffer is no exception. I had never heard of the brand before up until I met two representatives at a pr-event a few weeks ago.
They were there to present their newest make-up collaboration with Claudia Schiffer. I had already seen the box from afar and a glimpse of the glossy products while passing by… So my curiosity was at a peak when I arrived at their stand!
When the box openend completely, I was in awe: what a beautiful packaging! The products looked stunning and high end. I was very enthusiastic to hear and discover more about the make-up line and in the end I was gifted a lipstick and their contouring powder. So today I’ll review these items for you, but I’ll let you know in advance it doesn’t stop with just a lipstick and a contouring powder. They have eyeshadow, mascara, brow products, lipsticks and lipliners, powders, highlighter and a lip & cheek tint!

Claudia Schiffer: The Power of Make-Up
The star of this make-up collaboration is Claudia Schiffer. I mostly remember/recognise her as one of the 90’s supermodels and her cameo in Westlife’s Uptown Girl – one of my favorite songs in the early 00’s :)
The press report also included an interview with Claudia Schiffer talking about everything from her own experience with make-up as a model to her very own collection with ARTDECO:
“When I was on set as a young model, I really used it to help me become a character and it helped me feel much more at home on the catwalk or in front of the camera. ARTDECO is a household name in Germany where I grew up – and their products are among the first I ever borrowed from my mother’s dressing table, so their experience was unquestionable.”
Cream Lipstick Caspar n°271
When I opened up the lipstick tube for the first time, I was pleasantly surprised!
It’s a gorgeous slightly orangey red – nice and vibrant for fall! You can find a picture of me wearing the lipstick at the bottom of this review :)
I really like applying this lipstick. Because of its gel-like formula, it gives my lips a smooth and full effect! It’s creamy to the touch and has excellent pigmentation. One swipe is actually enough to get a nice coverage!
And the best part? It’s paraben free – good news for those that worry about the fact we actually kinda eat half of our lipstick (!) by licking our lips, eating, etc. No harmful paraben build-up in our bodies :)
As you can see on the close-ups of this well-thought-out lipstick, it features a little raindrop print on the lipstick and a cloud on the tube.
The reason behind this particular design is actually super adorable! Claudia Schiffer is often nicknamed Claude – hence the “cloud” and raindrops on the lipstick! I think it’s just the cutest backstory on one of the products and it makes it so personal: the collection simply breathes Claudia Schiffer.
The cream lipsticks are available in vivid orange (caspar n°271), intense red (poppy land n°300) and in a pink hue (candy cane n°420).
Contouring Powder Desert n°743.10
The contour powder is equally stunning. The packaging is just so glamorous with the nude pink and gold! It definitely gives it a luxurious feeling (which goes for the whole collection actually) and stands beautifully on your make-up table.
The contour powder is – just like the lipstick – paraben free. You also won’t find any mineral oils in this product. However, there is hyaluronic acid in it to hydrate the skin.
The contour powder has a very soft and velvety texture. The fine powder keeps super tiny sparkles in it, but they are very subtle! No disco ball effect here, ladies: subtle glow it what this powder is all about!
I love to use this powder as a bronzer (since I’m not a full-on contouring girl). To me it’s important that my bronzer/contour shade is not too warm, or else it will look muddy or downright dirty. I’m happy to say Desert n°743.10 is a very good match for my skin tone; it has enough coolness in it to match my skin tone yet it’s warm enough to give me a subtle sun kissed glow. I find myself often reaching for this contour powder during my daily make-up routine – the sign of a very loved product!
Here’s the full look with the cream lipstick and the contour powder. What do you think? ;)
