Full Review and Swatches

Editor Press Samples: Elizabeth Arden is a leading cosmetics brand that has been in the beauty industry  for years and years. There luxurious permanent collection offers products that are in many of us dolls makeup and beauty staple, but their Limited Edition collection always gets better and better as each season comes and goes. Their Sunkissed Pearls collection is no different each of these products that I have to share with you today has made this one of my favorite Limited Edition collections of 2015.

Sunkissed Pearls Bronzer and Highlighter:

The box packaging is multi colored seashells that just looks so amazing on your vanity after each use I always put the disk back into the box! The product's packaging itself is an all white disk where the bottom half is the all matte bronzer which has the embossing of 2 bigger seashells that come together. At the top half you have the most beautiful rose gold highlighter you will ever see. The matte bronzer is a warmer bronzed shade which to me personally is more of a mid toned shade that leans cool and warm. I do love that happy medium! It's not chalky or dry it feels like silk to the touch and easily buildable in color and diffuses nicely and melts right into your skin for that natural contour or added warmth to your complexion for that  I was at the beach all day look. Both formulations do not stick to any problematic skin problems and both last through sweat and heat.

 The rose gold highlighter is giving me so much life. The picture swatches of both products are not doing the highlighter or bronzer any justice. The highlighter is the most beautiful rose gold that I have seen in permanent or limited edition collections I have tried in the past. It has made it in my top 8 favorite all time highlighters. This particular  rose gold will not be to dark for porcelain to light skin tones, and will show up on medium to deep skin tones. It does appear at first glance that the over lay does have glitter but there is no glitter in the highlighter what's so ever, so if you stray from the glitz do not fret! The brush that comes with this is super soft and perfect shape to get that straight contour to refine your facial features.


Sunkissed Pearls Cream Eyeshadow:

This is my first time trying cream eyeshadow sticks from EA and I have to say when they say cream it's cream! Talk about how well it glides on the lids it doesn't tug and is super easy to blend out with your fingers or a brush. If you have dry lids it will not cling on to the dry patches and if you have oily lids it will not slick off. Both of the shadows opacity is rated at a 10/10, they last about 6-7 hours before seeing any fading but if you prep your lids with a primer the length of wear is added by 2 more hours of wear. You can use this on your lids as a single shadow, base to powdered eyeshadows, and as an eye liner. You can even use bronze pearl in areas around your face where you want to add some bronze.

Sunkissed Pearls Lip Gloss Trio:

You get 3 summer appropriate shades which are Coral Pearl, Berry Pearl and Pink Pearl Each gloss is non sticky and have a nice wash of color. They only last a couple hours on the lips and can be used by themselves or as a topper to a lipstick for a killer lip combo. All are 3 are a squeeze tube packaging with the standard slanted lip gloss applicator that easily contours your lips during application. I did see some separating in the coral pearl shade so to stop that I have to squeeze and shake the product before use and that helps in preventing that.


Well dolls overall I am loving this collection!! Everything is great from the packaging to the performance of 99% of the products minus the separation. Do you think you will be picking up any of these products?
