Elizabeth Arden has recently released their brand new Sunkissed Pearls Limited Edition Color Collection, and today I have all three shades of the Sunkissed Pearls Cream Eye Shadow Stylos* ($26 CAD each) to share with you! I love a good cream shadow stick, in fact I reach for one everyday as a base for my powder eye shadows. Read on to see how this new formula from Elizabeth Arden compares to other formulas that I've tried!
· Color Enriched Pigments: provide rich, pearlized color with a luxuriously smooth and even application.
· Soft Focus Microspheres: help blur skin’s imperfections, minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
· Aloe and Jojoba Oil: allow formula to wear comfortably while soothing and softening the sensitive eye area.
· Vitamin E: Environmental protectant that helps to protect against environmental stressors that cause visible signs of aging." - Elizabeth Arden
Elizabeth Arden's Limited Edition Sunkissed Pearls Cream Eye Shadow Stylos come packaged simply in white plastic twist up tubes. I love that you don't have to worry about sharpening these pencils, which makes them great for travelling too! There are three shades in this collection, and I think that they're all great for the upcoming Spring season. Blue Pearl is a gorgeous shimmering lagoon green with a good amount of pigmentation. Bronze Pearl is exactly what the name would suggest - a shimmering bronze that works amazingly well under neutral toned shadows. Freshwater Pearl is my favourite shade from the bunch, it's a pinky beige with a beautiful shimmery sheen to it.
This formula from Elizabeth Arden is creamy and very easy to blend. You can either wear these on their own, or as a base for powder shadows. I also like to use these as liners on my bottom lash line. This formula stays put all day long, without creasing or fading. If you have oily lids then I think you'll love how long wearing this formula is!
Overall, I'm very impressed with these cream shadow sticks from Elizabeth Arden! These three shades are gorgeous, and I can see myself getting a lot of use out of Bronze Pearl and Freshwater Pearl, while Blue Pearl is a fun "special occasion" type of colour. These Eye Shadow Stylos are limited edition, so pick them up while you still can!
