Elizabeth Arden has released a new eye shadow formula with its Beautiful Color Eye Shadows. There are seven (7) different duos currently available that include this new formula, which is said to be smooth, crease-free, and long-lasting. This review is for the duo Classic Khaki, which includes a shimmering khaki green and a shimmering nude-pink.


Packaging: 9.25/10

These duo shadows come in rectangular, plastic, gold and silver compacts that flip open and contain a mirror inside. The lid is embossed with Elizabeth Arden’s iconic Red Door.

Quality: 9.5/10

Classic Khaki contains a shimmering, subtly glittery, khaki green and a shimmering nude that has a pink undertone. Both shades have good pigmentation, though the colors are on the softer side (especially the nude-pink shadow).

The formula isn’t stiff/dry or overly crumbly. It has enough softness to glide across the skin smoothly and blend evenly through the crease and it stays together enough to avoid producing fall-out. You can also use each shade with a damp brush, which deepens the color of the shadow slightly.

Without primer applied underneath, the shadow didn’t start creasing until about five (5) hours of wear. With primer applied underneath, I didn’t see creasing even after eight (8) hours of wear.

Ease of Use: 9.75/10

These shades blend out smoothly and can be applied wet or dry.

Price: 8/10

For $28.50 you get 0.11 ounces (3 grams) of product. Elizabeth Arden’s single Beautiful Color eye shadows contain 0.09 ounces and cost $10.00 less. Unfortunately, you’re paying more but not getting an equivalent increase in the amount of shadow when you move from the single shadows to the duos.
