With the sun finally shining once again, I've found myself gravitating towards more gloss and shine formulas in lip products. And they don't come much more glossier or shinier than Artdeco's Hydra Lip Boosters.
I've been aware of Artdeco for a long time as my mum lives in Germany, and I've seen their huge makeup displays in all the big department stores over there (read my 5 Popular German Beauty Brands post to see what I'm talking about!). They launched in the UK a few years ago, but I don't hear a lot of about them, and I think that some of the products are seriously underrated.
Case in point, their Hydra Lip Boosters. I received one in a Love Me Beauty box and it's just a beautiful lip gloss. I have the shade 39 Translucent Wood Rose which is a pretty wash of pink. From other reviews I've read, it appears that the darker and brighter shades like this one offer slightly more pigmentation than the lighter colours and nude offerings.

The gloss itself delivers some serious mega watt shine, has a tiny amount of shimmer to catch the spring sunlight, and it helps to plump up and hydrate the lips with Hyaluronic and Marine Filling Spheres in the formula. Unlike other similar products, it doesn't sting or tingle at all, plus it's virtually non-sticky with hardly any noticeable scent or flavour. I wouldn't say it's a long lasting lip gloss, but given the big bonuses above, I don't mind reapplying.
Have you tried / do you use any Artdeco makeup?
