I had the pleasant opportunity to try out some of the Elizabeth Arden Aurora Rose Spring/Summer 2012 products. At the end of this review and the swatches, there is a giveaway!
Packaging is important for the ease of a product’s use, but even more so with high end products because customers are also paying for aesthetic appeal. In this case, I was immediately drawn to the beautiful rose gold packaging . I love the floral theme of the collection as well.
Pure Finish Bronze Powder in Soft Radiance
The Pure Finish Bronzer came in 3 shades: Soft Radiance, Warm Radiance and Deep Radiance. I tried out two bronzers from this collection, the lightest and the darkest shades. Both have a subtle shimmery sheen. They have a golden finish to them. When applied, the powder feels soft and finely milled. Additionally, these can be applied with a light hand because they are well pigmented.
Pure Finish Bronze Powder in Deep Radiance
Pure Finish Highlighter in Rose Illumination
This is a rose coloured highlight with a golden sheen, matching with the theme of the collection. This highlighter illuminates the face instantly, in my opinion, this was easily the stand out product of the collection. I’m normally not drawn to highlighting powders, but just a little bit of this product applied to the upper cheeks awakens the complexion with a beautiful radiant glow.
Honey Ceramide Cream blush
This cream blush compliments tanned skin perfectly. It’s easy to blend on the apples of the cheeks and is well pigmented. This was a close second favourite of mine and I have been wearing it non stop with the Rose Illumination highlight.
Rose Aurora Ceramide Ultra Lipstick
The Rose Aurora lipstick has a slight rosy hue with a golden shimmer. It gives sort of a golden frost to the lips, perfect for Spring and Summer. I found it easy to apply, even without a mirror, simply because it wears light a neutral shade with a noticeable finish.
