Art On It Makeup Fall 2014 Swatches + Review

Press Sample

Art On It Makeup is one of my favorite brands not only because the products are high quality but because the packaging makes me feel like I’m at the opening of a very important art gallery featuring a very important artist. Fall is in the air and it’s time to paint our faces (aka our canvases!) with the best of the best. Art On It Makeup is making that easy with the products below!

Les Chromatiques Artsy Compact in Asphyxia ($65.00) – This compact is truly a work of art and I’m not just talking about the outer packaging. The eye shadows are as soft as butter but as pigmented as you’ll ever need. You hardly have to touch your brush to the shade to pick up the color and application is a breeze. The quartet in Asphyxia is perfect for Fall days with the Deep Bronze and Baby Gold shades and then sexing it up for night with the Burn Gundy and Lapiz. These shadows can also be worn wet if you really want them to look metallic (especially for liner), but tbh it’s not even necessary. The shades swatched dry and without a primer are more than enough for anyone who isn’t on the catwalk.

In the eye look below I have Baby Gold at the inner corners and also blending out the crease, Burn Gundy on the lid, Deep Bronze in the crease and Lapiz at the outer corner. The liner is Art On It Le Stylo Art Beauté and the mascara is Eddie Funkhouser Quattro Variable Lash Mascara. I did use Urban Decay Primer Potion for this look to help hold the look all day long.

Le Stylo Art Beauté in Cat Noir ($27.00). This type of felt tip point makes it ridiculously easy to get a thin and very precise line, exactly where you want it. The color is saturated and easy to get the perfect pigment in one pass. The ink is 100% water-based and you can count on it to never fade or migrate.

Lipstick in Love Lucy ($25.00). I so Love Lucy. It’s warm and completely opaque in one pass. I’d call the finish a matte but not in the flat, drying way. It lasts for up to 4-5 hours (unless you eat or drink) and wears phenomenally. This may just be my ultimate red.

Lip Gloss in Abracadabra($24.00). Abracadabra has a mostly sheer base with maybe a hint of gold to it. There is a gilded sparkle but it’s not as noticeable as you’d think on your lips. It’s not uber sticky and makes a great compliment to Love Lucy. I always like my pout to have a little more dimension 😉

Below I’m wearing the entire line that I’ve reviewed here. The eye look is broken down above (in case you scrolled and missed it!), Love Lucy Lipstick is on my lips with Abracadabra dabbed in the middle.

One more time, look at the packaging. You can’t say no.

Introducing ART ON IT Makeup! Luminous Anti-Aging Foundation, Face Glow & Lip Art Liner Swatches, Review & FOTD

Press Sample

You know that feeling you get when one of your favorite and most admired makeup artists finally creates their own line? This is IT for me! I’ve followed the creator Sergio Escalona since his days of working with a luxury beauty brand and continued to admire his art work even after those days. Now, his beauty line Art On It Makeup is officially launched and ready to paint you pretty.

I was sent a selection of products to introduce you to, and I think you’ll find them quite appealing! The Luminous Anti-Aging Foundation in Medium, the Face Glow in Angelo and the Lip Art Liner in POP IT.

The packaging itself is easy to look at with the simple black and white colors and a burst of red. The artwork is done by Sergio himself, which makes this line even more personal and unique.

(L-R: Luminous Anti-Aging Foundation in Medium, Face Glow in Angelo and Lip Art Pencil in POP ART)

Luminous Anti-Aging Foundation ($52.00) feels light, but still boasts a sweet medium coverage. Shown below in Medium, this foundation glides on easily leaving the perfect base for your powder as well as catering to your skin with anti-aging properties. This foundation is currently available in three shades – light, medium and dark.

Face Glow($25.00) is so perfectly lovely. Shown below in Angelo, this powder is soft and fine as well as pigmented. You need only tap your brush on top of the powder to get just enough product to illuminate your face. Face Glow is available in two shades – Angelo and Stella.

Lip Art Liner($25.00) This just might be my new favorite thing. Shown below in POP IT, this liner features a precise tip to line the lips with and then if you flatten the applicator against your mouth it’s a cinch to fill in the lines. Once this is on and dried (it dries matte) it will not move at all. It sinks into the lips and does feel a bit drying, but not in that cakey annoying way. I wore it alone all day without issues, but you could always apply a light balm over-top if needed. The POP ART color is a vibrant orange but my natural lip pigment gave it a bit of red, making it wonderfully wearable. Lip Art Liner is available in four shades – Rosso 05, Neutral 11, POP IT 24 and Clamor 64.

Below I’m wearing the Art On It Foundation all over the face, the Face Glow to highlight the cheek bones and also as an eyeshadow (yay, I love products with multiple uses!) and the Lip Art Liner on my lips.

This is just the tip of the iceberg for the Art On It brand. You can purchase these products and more on their website as well as find them on Facebook and Twitter. To learn more about the creator, Sergio Escalona, check out his interview over at Painted Ladies!
