Elizabeth Arden Rose Aurora Collection

I tweeted about making this gorgeous new rose gold discovery over a week ago now, and for some reason time has slipped away from me and I'm only just getting around to sharing it with you all.

don't often go for Elizabeth Arden makeup. I'm not really sure why, it's just not a natural stopping point in the beauty hall for me. Their latest Spring collection however, may be about to change all that as I've fallen head over heels in love with it.
The Rose Aurora collection consists of three gorgeous products all housed in rose gold packaging. There is a shimmery bronzer, a slightly metallic natural pink lipstick (Rose Aurora) and last but not least, the star of the collection, the Rose Illumination highlighter.
All of the products are simply divine, but the highlighter really steals the show. The colour is lovely, the pigmentation is good and it leaves a gorgeous spring glow to the skin. I'm not normally much of a highlighter girl, but I've been wearing this every single day since I got it. It's one of those rare products that combines beautiful limited edition packaging with a great, everyday shade inside. The products are pricey at £19 for the lipstick, £23 for the highlighter and £25 for the bronzer, but if you like a bit of luxury in your makeup bag and have an obsession with rose gold like me, these are a must see!
The Elizabeth Arden Rose Aurora collection is available on counters and online (click here) now.
Another update on the Elizabeth Arden front... They are also releasing a new 'unfragranced' version of their cult 8 Hour Cream. I got the chance to try this out as well last week and while it does still carry some scent, it's definitely much less powerful and will certainly be a winner for anyone out there who loves the product but hates it's distinctive medicinal smell! (available in Boots now)

  3. This rose gold collection is beautiful!!! I swear by 8 hour cream for my lips (but have always hated the smell). I am going to have to get the unfragranced version when mine runs out!

  4. I love rose gold. The packaging is just so elegant and pretty. The colours of the products are lovely. I might try the lipstick and highlighter. Im not a fan of brozer, had some bad experiences from not blending properly it wasnt pretty. Excellent reveiw as always Fleur.

  7. Eep! Perhaps a little too pricey for me. All the same the packaging is beautiful. More companies should jump on the rose gold bandwagon. Thanks for the review.

  15. This is absolutely lovely.
    And I'm so happy they're bringing a scent-free(-ish) version to stores. I hate the smell!
    Great gift for my mum, I think!

  38. OMG the bronzer looks fab! I wasn't too sure about the lipstick but it actually looks really nice once applied... Def worth a try I think

    ReplyDelete
  39. The highlighter sounds wonderful. Does it have any glitter in it?
    Is it superficial of me to wish that it came in the same packaging as bronzer?

    ReplyDelete
  40. the highlighter looks amazing, i dont normally go for elizabeth arden either, but i really want to try this collection out :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  41. love the packaging,I have a love for the gold and have always loved ysl, but this could maybe sway me to try out a little bit more from the arden range

    ReplyDelete
  42. Such a pretty colour and the packaging is fab too!

  43. I just got the dark bronzer a few days ago and the highlighter. At first I thought it was the highlighter I loved the most but after 3 days of non stop use of the bronzer I am considering buying multiple backups. It looks so dark but looks so great once blended. WOW!

    ReplyDelete
  44. wow! your brown highlighter is really the highlight in this post. i like this.
