Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eyeshadow Quad – Review & Swatch




I’ve been wanting to try Elizabeth Arden like forever.  And I finally decided to dive in and try this Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow Quad.

In this post I’m going to be writing about a stunning eye palette, the Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow Quad – Posh Purples.


I purchased this Posh Purples by Elizabeth Arden  because it looks like many eye shadow colors that I own. It’s got a good color selection that I can reach for every time I feel like wearing purple eye makeup.


Other limited edition beautiful color eye shadow quad is in Golden Opulence and Chic Browns for US$40.00 online at Elizabeth Arden website.


This palette comes complete with a double-sided eye shadow brush with a decent size mirror in a sleek white compact that adorned with a glided plaque. Charming isn’t it!


These colors are all gorgeous with flattering tones. You get two shimmery, one glitter and matte shadows. It’s quite versatile and that makes it easily to create any look you like.


When it comes to the texture of powders you can really feel the difference between high-street and high-end brands, although I do want to point out that high-street brands are catching up and very fast!

The packaging is super-cute and has a luxury touch about it plus all the colors are indeed flattering!


Can you all see the goodness of these eyeshadows in that pan?  Aaaaahhhh!!!

Another point worth mentioning is that the formula goes on smoothly and lasts all day and night. Amazing results when it comes to blending and buildable to the tone your desire. I would say it has quite a high-pigment color with a crease-resistant finish.


Here are the color swatches on my bare arm. It’s there and it’s in full effect. Every time, I take a picture of a swatch with lighter shades, you barely see it but this pink glitter shadow (on the left) is so pretty. I wear it on my lids and brow bones for this look.

Posh Purples EOTD look without applying a primer where I used this palette to create the look above . The purple color formula is intense and has very good color payoff. Love it!

All in all, not bad at all I would say. It gave nice blended finish look and it’s really easy to bring anywhere you go in your purse.

Which of the Elizabeth Arden makeup products would you like to try?  Leave answer in the comments below. As always I love hearing from you so let me know what you think of this palette!

High-end Makeup – Beauty Haul


Hey lovelies,

This week, I love to talk and share with you some of the makeup products that I picked up from several stores during my hunt for more beauty products. You will see that in this post, I’m combining beauty haul with my review on the products which I picked this week. This is a new style format for me to share my experience hauling all the beauty product while also sharing my opinion by doing a review on each products on the same post.

beauty haul mac

I have here a Becca Sheer Sick Foundation, Mac Matte Lipsticks in Saint Germain and Fanfare, Korres Volcanic Minerals Mascara and lastly the Ecotools Brushes.

mac matte lipsticks

Did I tell you lately that after I did my first review on the Mac Matte Lipstick (Lady Danger), I was head over toes with the amazing pigment and its long wear?. Oh my gosh! you really have to get one of these, dear!

Both are really gorgeous colors which I loved. Well, I’m not really a pink lady so pale pink is not my cup of tea but since I’m planning to keep on to my beauty resolution, I intend to dare wear it :[

Are you curious which shades are those? The pale pink is Saint Germain while the other is Fanfare. Each net wt: 0.1 oz. Saint Germain has been a top seller and described as a “light cool pink”. I see that it’s more of a pale pink with blue base. Look at how opaque coverage this formula is? It also has some scent of vanilla but not overwhelming. I wore this for almost half the day. Yes, it looks a bit chalky as the wears goes on, as the sheen goes away faster than the color does. If you like, apply a touch of Saint Germain Lipglass even “Pink Panther” will indulge.

Next is the Fanfare which has coral-y tone. It’s pearly finish which is pretty. Nothing to complain about on the pigment category and it has a lovely nude color which I love. I can practically wear it anytime of the day.

Repurchase: Definitely! These lipsticks are definitely a winner in my books.

becca sheer stick foundation

Becca Sheer Stick Foundation with SPF 30+ in Treacle (Net wt: 0.3 oz). Available in 30 impressive neutral shades for light skin to dark skin and somewhere in between.  There’s a big chance that one of these colors will work for you. Check out at Becca, Sephora, Amazon and Ulta.

This is my first time picking up Becca foundation and I just found out that this shade is leaning to a dark tone. I picked this at Winners (a Canadian retail chain) for a good price tag. The disappointing part is “no testing allowed” 😦 I’m like argh …. so frustrating sometimes. But that’s their store’s policy and have to abide to it. Most of you might know that I’m always curious to try products be it old or now and how it fairs. so I wouldn’t mind going ahead to get this foundation 🙂 More so to share my experience with you.

Oh wow!!! just look at this beauty. The color swatch and its pigmentation is absolutely amazing. It’s so creamy and once the wax content warms up to skin temperature it’s sets to a satin cream finish. This stick foundation blends incredibly well and I just love the smooth and soft texture. It also has wonderful medium coverage and can be sheered out or to more opaque if needed. The best part is that this foundation’s sunscreen of SPF 30+ which is super awesome. Although it has a broad spectrum sun protection on its own. you will need to apply the foundation liberally and evenly in order to get the stated level of protection.

Repurchase: Absolutely! Will pick a lighter shade for my skintone.

mascara review korres

I also picked up this nice looking mascara by Korres from Winners. It’s a Volcanic Minerals Volumizing Mascara in 02 Obsidian Black (Net wt: 0.27 fl oz). Price $20.00 at Korres.ca. This pigment rich mineral blends derived from volcanic soil. With every lash coats are smudge-proof. It doesn’t clump or smears under eyes.

I wore it early yesterday morning for my review and boy am I glad that I didn’t ended up with a full on raccoon eyes with this mascara :). It’s a long wearing durability for 8-9 hours. I wore them the whole day and my lashes still looks pretty and it didn’t budge. I just washed them while I was cleansing my face with Tony Molly face cleanser and the mascara comes out effortlessly.

It comes with a nice clump free tapered brush. I’m happy with Korres and will sure be checking out more on their skincare products for review.

Repurchase: Without a doubt!

ecotools brushes

Ecotools Bamboo 4 piece brush set. I comes with a concealer brush, a mineral powder brush, a mini kabuki and eye shading brush. A lovely set for mineral makeup. I love brush material from bamboo because it supposedly last for a long time. It’s an earth friendly set and join others with 1% for he Planet.

I haven’t tried these brushes yet but I know that I love the feel of these brushes.  It feels so soft and easy to bring for travelling. They’re available at Wal-mart and Ulta.

Repurchase: Not certain! Haven’t yet tested till perfection.

So, that’s my take on the reviews and beauty haul for this week. Until next time, thank you very much for reading.

Let me know what you think of this new style format? Your comment is important to me 🙂
