Elizabeth Arden Sunset Bronze Collection

I was recently given the opportunity to try some of the Elizabeth Arden makeup range, something I have never done before and I am grateful for that chance because it is just absolutely amazing. The Sunset Bronze Collection** for Summer 2016 which was inspired by the breathtaking summer sunset is just as stunning as the packaging suggests and it includes a few limited edition products which are well worth hunting down to purchase. The range includes Prismatic Lip Glosses, a Bronzing Powder and Eyeshadow Palette which means there is something for everyone. The only product I don't have from this collection is the Prismatic Highlighting Stick which is described as being a creamy, luminous stick which is infused with hydrating ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Zinc PCA and Vitamin E to add a glow to your cheekbones.

I have the Primastic Bronzing Powder in shade Warm Bronze 01 and it is perfect for my pale skin. The silky bronzer is diffused with golden shimmer which runs throughout and in doing so it leaves a glow to the skin which adds warmth. Again, packed with skin-perfecting ingredients, this bronzer helps to minimise fine lines and wrinkles and using Vitamin E and Argan Oil to not only keep your skin moisturised but to also keep it feeling soft.

I love the pattern of the bronzer and if you look closely enough, you can see that it is made up of a few different bronzer shades and that there is a slight sparkle.  The compact, which also replicates the amazing packaging features a handy mirror and it comes with a half moon brush which is incredibly easy to use.

The Prismatic Lip Glosses are Limited Edition and they are rather quirky looking. Available in three shades: 01 Moonlight Kiss, 02 Midnight Kiss and 03 Sunset Kiss. I have 01 Moonlight kiss which is described as being lavender in shade. What I love about it is how glossy it is within the tube, if you turn it within the light, it changes colour slightly and that is owing to the lustrous pigments and multidimensional pearls it is packed with. Each gloss within this range has a high-shine iridescence and they nourish the lips with moisture. Using Aloe Vera to soothe, comfort and moisturise whilst Vitamins A and E help to protect the lips whilst also adding moisture.

I am not usually a lipgloss kind of girl, I find them annoying, especially if they are tacky on the lips and you spend half the time picking your hair out of the gloss. This Prismatic Lipgloss is one that is not tacky when applied and it is one I have constantly used to the point of being obsessed with it. I wear it on top of lipsticks and on its own and just love how moisturising and hydrating it is, add that to the sparkle and shine and it ticks every box for me.  The swatches above show the gloss with flash, in natural light and then with no flash.


The final item I have from this collection is the Summer Seduction Eyeshadow Palette. Again the compact mirrors the packaging and has a handy mirror and brush for on the go application. The palette features five gorgeous very pigmented shimmery shades from a soft pink and golden amber to taupe-plum and rich purple powder, which you could use together or on their own. All of these shadows are really creamy to the touch but do not crease once applied and there is hardly any fallout which is incredibly impressive. I adore all of the shades and am slowly getting used to wearing something other than nudey eye, but I am not quite there yet.

As you can see from the eyeshadow swatches, where I have done all the pinky shades and not the yellow coloured one (oops) they are just stunning and the swatches are just one swipe of the finger on top of each shade.

The entire collection is beautiful and it is one I would recommend looking at if you have never tried anything from Elizabeth Arden before, for me, this was my first look into the make up of a brand I have heard so much about, but have never delved into and now I am glad that I have.
