Pure Finish Mineral Cheekcolor in Sun-kissed Coral $28.00

Although I don’t wear a whole lot of makeup, I do love checking out new releases and showing them to my friends and you guys. A couple of weeks ago I previewed the new spring releases from Elizabeth Arden, it’s my first time checking out the brand’s makeup. At the preview, celebrity makeup artist Brett Freedman demonstrated a day and night look with the new collection which included: Ceramide Ultra Lipstick and the Bronze in Bloom line (Pure Finish Mineral Bronzing Powder, High Shine Lip Gloss, Pure Finish Mineral Cheekcolor, Color Intrigue Eyeshadow Quad and Smoky Eyes Powder Pencil). I personally quite liked the Smoky Eyes Powder Pencil in Blue Sky and Black Violet, it’s subtle but when you come close you can see a hint of color. Check out the rest of the collection after the jump…

(pictured above) Warm your cheeks with Pure Finish Mineral Cheekcolor in Sun-kissed Coral.  Freshly ground for ultimate purity, this microlight mineral cheekcolor gives your cheeks a healthy, natural looking glow.  Comes with its own mini angled kabuki brush for perfect application.  Oil free.  Talc free.  Fragrance free.

Color Intrigue Eyeshadow Quad  in Golden Lilac and Blue Breeze $30.00
Brighten your eyes with Color Intrigue Eyeshadow Quad in two new coordinated quartets. Golden Lilac makes midsummer magic in shades ranging from softest lavender to midnight gray. Blue Breeze creates beguiling eyes with petal-pretty hues of blue.  These limited edition shades let you color, contour, highlight and line eyes with rich, true color you’ll want to wear all season long.

High Shine Lip Gloss in Tropicoral $15.00
Glisten up with High Shine Lip Gloss in new Tropicoral.  This glamorous, glossy formula, with its soft barely-there scent, glides over lipstick for brilliant shine.
Ceramide Ultra Lipstick $22.50
This luxurious moisturizing lipstick formula surrounds and envelops pigments with powerful hydrating ingredients. Volulip™, an advanced peptide complex with intensive moisturizing abilities, visibly plumps the appearance of lips. Ceramide Triple Complex, a blend of skin-identical Ceramides 1, 3 and 6 enhanced with phytosphingosine, helps strengthen and retexturize skin’s appearance and hold vital skin-plumping moisture within the skin. Lips look fuller and younger.  Contours seem more defined.

Green Tea Lavender
The Perfumer’s Inspiration: “An inviting scent that would take on a comforting yet exhilarating journey. I envisioned purple fields of lavender and created something with a magical feeling…nothing over the top… just the feeling I had as a child sipping my freshly made tea. So pure yet so sublime. Something that provides both a relaxing warmth and an uplifting freshness.” – Rodrigo Flores-Roux, Givaudan
The Fragrance: Fresh. Relaxing. Carefree. Emphasizing the feel-good nature of the franchise, Green Tea Lavender has one of the highest quality certified organic essential oils available, Givaudan’s Organic Lavender from Bulgaria. The organic lavender used in this fragrance possesses a unique character with a very rich aromatic almost ambery note.

Green Tea Camellia
The Perfumer’s Inspiration: “Ikebana is a far eastern traditional form of flower arrangement. The most elevated form of ikebana is known as chabana. The prefix Cha relates to its intimate relationship to the ceremony of tea. Very frequently the centerpiece for this flower arrangement is a very specific kind of fragrant camellia known as sasanqua. Its delicate fragrance combines peony, rose and mandarin tree blossom notes with a delicate tea nuance. We reconstituted this elusive scent and infused it into the Elizabeth Arden Green Tea DNA as a starting point for this exciting but delicate fragrance.” – Rodrigo Flores-Roux, Givaudan
The Fragrance: Delicate. Graceful. Intriguing. Inspired by the ancient art of Japanese flower arrangement, this luxurious fragrance reveals the delicate grace of the Camellia blossom as it unfolds petal by petal.
