Company’s Description

Rooted in NYC with more than 100 years of beauty expertise, Beautiful Color Eye Shadows were developed in shades that are trend driven and in a formula that is good for your skin. The outcome: smooth, crease-free shadows that combine long-lasting color with luxurious skin care benefits. Vitamin enriched. Oil-Free.

Elizabeth Arden has released a new eye shadow formula that includes 32 shades. This formula is said to be smooth, crease-free, and give long-lasting color. This review is for the shade Bronze Lustre–a soft, medium, gold-fawn brown.


Pacifica. A Life of Beauty.

Packaging: 9.25/10

These single shadows come in square, 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: 9.8/10

Bronze Lustre is a pigmented yet soft, medium fawn-gold color with a shimmery finish. You can apply the shade dry, in which case it’s semi-opaque, or you can apply it with a damp brush, which deepens the color slightly and gives you a more opaque layer of shadow. This shade is effortless to wear and can be used both in the crease and on the lid.

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.

The formula also lasts longer than average before creasing. 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: 9.8/10

Bronze Lustre blends out smoothly through the crease while retaining its pigmentation. It also packs on evenly when applied to the lid.

Price: 9.25/10

For $18.50 you get 0.09 ounces (2.5 grams) of product. MAC eye shadows cost $15.00 and contain 0.05 ounces (1.5 grams) of product. You get more product per dollar with Elizabeth Arden’s eye shadow.
