It’s no surprise that I have an affinity for artfully designed, beautifully packaged makeup. In fact, I often post photos of recent acquisitions… but then become too attached to the impeccable styling and craftsmanship of the items, and simply can’t bear to actually use them.
Let’s just say that if I ever quit my day job, I could open a makeup art gallery.
Hence, of course I am obsessed with ARTDECO Cosmetics. For some, they need no introduction; since officially launching in Canada last summer, they’ve gained a cult following by those inspired by trendsetting couture.
But for the rest of you who have yet to discover the brand, I thought it was only polite that I provide you with an informal introduction. You may have seen their fashion-froward products at Shoppers Drug Mart, where they enjoy residence at 66 select locations across Canada. This year, more than 20 new stores are expected to carry the line.
“The secret to ARTDECO’s success is in the company’s constant focus on the individual wishes and needs of all women, combined with uncompromising quality and reasonable pricing. ARTDECO offers a wealth of special products and refillable and magnetic beauty boxes, which allow users to customize their own color palette to their needs.”
ARTDECO is identified by its on-trend and fashion-forward designs, the beautiful art creations they incorporate on packaging and the partnerships they have developed with influential designers and personalities including Talbot Runhof, Britto and Dita Von Teese. Highlights include:
Trend Colours: Twice a year, ARTDECO presents a range of fabulous new colours, carefully chosen to match the latest fashion trends. Picture below: In time for a spring fling, ARTDECO has officially announced their newest love-themed Spring/Summer Fashion Colors Collection. In lavenders, limes, emeralds and rosés, the ‘Love is in the Air’ Collection awakens springtime feelings and adds a playful cheerfulness to any look.
Refillable Products: The containers of eyeshadows and blushers all have magnets in the base so you can combine your favorite colors in the Beauty Boxes and change them as you please. Refills are also available for other products.
Specialty Products: Camouflage products, lipstick fixative and eyeshadow base are just some of many products that will make your make-up more even, last longer, and more professional than ever before without too much investment.
Innovations: ARTDECO is constantly adding new accents with trend products and innovations such as the high quality Pure Minerals collection. Many of these products become true classics, such as the refillable Système Mosaïque, the Camouflage range, and the practical Eye Designer.
The line is moderately priced (example, Art Couture lipsticks are 0.14oz/4g, retail $22.00). But the most compelling feature of the makeup is the “wow” factor; the chance to own a piece of art – one that just happens to fit in your makeup bag, of course. Click here to visit ARTDECO Cosmetics.

Love the design of this make-up! I have never heard of it before but will check out Shopper’s for it!
Awesome! Happy to introduce it to you!
These products look great! I love the look of the set too, very cool!! On my way to Shoppers… lol
LOL please do check them out! I will be too!
Simply gorgeous! I had seen the makeup in a SDM in Toronto but was in a rush and never followed up. Back to SDM I go!
For sure! Check it out and let me know what you think!
Oh I love ART DECO. Checked them out when they first came to Canada last summer. Thanks for the reminder, I forgot that they have such nice pieces.
I can’t wait to check out some of the pieces in greater detail myself. Glad you’re familiar with the brand, Matty!
Nice ! I like the fact that they are refillable and you can then mix and match your own colour combos :) I also like the Pure Minerals line ;) I wonder if the ArtDeco is sold at a Shoppers near me – guess I will have to ask next time I am there ;)
Please do Flora – it’s a fabulous line I can’t wait to explore!

oh they do look very pretty
Indeed! Just the kind of makeup I like to covet, but don’t use!
Beautiful colours and amazing packaging! I love it!
Check it out Susan! I think you’ll love it!
I absolutely LOVE their all-in-one mascara! What product of theirs do you like?
I’ve only tried the mascara and I agree, it’s fabulous! Looking forward to trying new items this Spring.
I am just like you – I buy beautiful things and then hate using them up! I love that these are refillable :-)
Yes! So we can admire the packaging over and over again ;)
I have never heard of this line of make up, but they do sound awesome and I like the refillable option for some, I also like how they look too almost to beautiful to use, this sounds like one line of make up I wouldn’t mind splurging on
Completely agree, Lynda. When the packaging is beautiful and refillable, it’s a worthy investment!
I love the impressive packaging – will check this product out at Shoppers.
Please do Marissa! The packaging is wonderful – it really is “art deco”!
Next time I go to Shoppers I will check this out. Refillable and moderately priced are encouraging words.
Yes! Totally agree. And it’s gorgeous, to boot!
Ooooh, love the pattern on the bronzer! So pretty
I agree! Lovely detailing – totally deserves the term DECO.
I love this!! I love the colours and packaging…oh…I am such a package snob and I just love these!!
I’m a package snob too Teresa! I have a feeling you’ll love the line!
Gorgeous packaging. I was at Shopper’s yesterday and didn’t see it, but I’m in NL afterall, we usually get things last or not at all. I will have to keep my eyes peeled!
Please do! I know they rolled out in Ontario and Alberta, but I’m not sure about the Martimes just yet.
Oh I’ll have to check Shopper’s for this. My daughter ‘collects’ make up.. & her birthday is coming! This is great, thank you Lena.
Perfect! You’re very welcome Darlene!
The advertising for this makeup definitely leaves you with a wow factor.
I agree. Is it makeup or is it art? It’s BOTH!
Love Art Deco makeup! I used to order it online before it came to Canada. I’m a sucker for pretty pretty packaging :)
Love to hear that Mary! Thanks for the feedback!
This make-up looks perfect for when you would like a dramatic look. Lovely!
I agree Heidi – but honestly, they have gorgeous neutral shades too! Can’t wait to check it out!
These look like awesome products
Check them out Darrah!
I adore the design of the makeup cases, so pretty and hip!
I agree Melinda!
I absolutely love the colors! Great for spring.
Yes they are!
You put on mascara, blush and lipstick then instantly you feel better.
SO true Darlene!

You’re very welcome Nicky!
