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 Romance–a shimmery, pale, pink-rose.
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.
Romance is a pigmented yet soft, light, pinky-rose 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 and makes it more opaque. This shade is effortless to wear and can be used both in the crease and on the lid. The pink tone is soft enough that you can wear it without it looking too juvenile or unconventional.
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
Romance blends out smoothly through the crease while retaining its pigmentation. It also packs on evenly when applied to the lid.
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.
