REVIEW & VINTAGE MAKEUP LOOK - ArtDeco Dita Von Teese Golden Vintage Lip Lacquer

I would like to preface this post by saying: IT IS SO HARD TO PHOTOGRAPH SHINY THINGS.

I'm sorry. I took a bunch of photos to try and demonstrate the golden beauty that is this lip lacquer, but I feel like none of them really do it justice. You'll just have to take my word for it, this stuff is GORGEOUS.

This lacquer is from Dita Von Teese's collection for Art Deco. I got the shade 70 which is part of the limited edition Golden Vintage range.

I picked this up in my local Debenhams on Thursday, where they were selling off a bunch of stuff from the range at half price. This thing was COVERED in stickers, you know those really sticky stickers that never come off? Yeah, those. The original price was £16 but it was reduced to £8.25 on the sticker, and then a random 50p came off at the till so I ended up bagging this for £7.75 which is a total bargain.

You can't tell too well here, but the lacquer is just what you would expect from the Queen of burlesque, a deep, glossy, true red which translates perfectly on the lips. The shine on this is exceptional, and it's not at all sticky, the perfect formula.

I've been wearing this for a few hours today and it's still going strong. It did transfer when I had a drink which I was totally expecting, but it has a nice stain quality to it so some colour was left behind on the lips even after the majority of the shine wore off.

I thought I'd do a simple 'vintage' style face of makeup to showcase this on the lips:

For my base I used Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation in the shade Fair 1 and a smidge of Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer under the eyes.

I used Maybelline's Master Brow in Dark Blonde for my eyebrows, I just picked this up too as my last eyebrow pencil ran out in a disastrous moment after I had filled in ONE EYEBROW. Panic stricken is not the word. This pencil's alright as far as they go, it's a decent colour match and for less than £3 I can't really complain.

For my eyes I used Clinique's All About Shadow Quad in Pink Chocolate to create a really light, wearable smokey eye. I then lined the eyes with Soap & Glory's Supercat and used Soap & Glory's Smoulder Kohl to finish off my upper and lower waterlines. Then for mascara I went with Benefit's They're Real (which is amazing).

The cheeks are a mixture of Soap & Glory Solar Powder Bronzer and Chanel Joues Contraste in Pink Explosion and I finished off the whole look with a light dusting of Soap & Glory (are you sensing a pattern?) Glow All Out Luminizing Face Powder down my nose, under my eyes and across my forehead. Voila. What you can't see is that despite the glamour you see before you, I was also wearing sweatpants. Hey, that's what weekends are for, right?

I can't find this particular lacquer online, but Debenhams is still stocking some of the DVT range online, and I'm sure if you hot-foot it down to your local store, you can pick up a bargain too.
