Elizabeth Arden Summer 2009 Collection

Dolls, did you watch the fascinating PBS documentary called The Powder and the Glory that chronicled the life-long rivalry between Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein? You MUST check it out. The two even lived blocks from each other–but never met. Cra. In related news, the new Elizabeth Arden Summer Collection is their most gorge to date. We’re talking in 90 years of beauty biz as Florence Nightingale Graham (who later became known as Elizabeth Arden) started EA in 1909. Can you even? My faves of the suite of products are the Sunlit Bronze Beauty Kit and the Gel Liner in Ocean Teal.

Bronze Minerals for Face and Cheeks

Elizabeth Arden brings minerals to bronzing. Infused with microlight minerals and natural extracts, new Bronze Minerals bronzes your face and blushes your cheeks with warm, rich tones and skin-enhancing benefits. Sunlit colors light up your eyes and kiss your lips. It’s everything you need to capture the barefoot beauty and carefree spirit of the tropics.

Bronze with Pure Finish Mineral Bronzing Powder in light or medium for a natural look. Sweep over cheekbones, forehead and brow bones, with its own Kabuki-style brush, to give skin a healthy sun-kissed glow.

Blush believably with Pure Finish Mineral Cheekcolor in Rosy Glow. Sweep onto apples of cheeks, with its own applicator brush, to give them a bright, healthy-looking glow.

Infused with natural minerals, these Pure Finish Mineral powders contain light-reflective mica and skin-softening silica to assure a natural luminous look, plus aloe vera and chamomile – ingredients known for their soothing and moisturizing benefits.

Sunlit Colors for Eyes and Lips

Light up your looks wherever you go with Sunlit Bronze Beauty Kit. From four limited edition eyeshadow shades to a blush/highlighter duo for cheeks, it’s everything you need in one sunny bronze compact …including its own eyeshadow applicator, cheekcolor brush and mirror.

Add depth and drama to your eyes with Color Intrigue Gel Eyeliner in Ocean Teal. The easy-gliding formula, complete with its own eyeliner brush, lines and defines eyes with smooth, long wearing color.

Brighten your smile with Color Intrigue Effects Lipstick in Limited Edition Guava Pearl or Cherry Pearl and Cocoa Bronze Pearl. Sensational shades. Moisturizing color. Lasting effects.

Polish up your pout with glistening High Shine Lip Gloss in limited edition Tropicoral or choose one of four brilliant new shades: Rosegold, Pink Pout, Maple and Berrylicious. Same glamorous, glossy formula with a soft, barely-there scent.
