There is this notion that Elizabeth Arden is only for oldies. I’d like to challenge that with this gorgeous timeless highlighter!
Elizabeth Arden released a limited edition Rose Aurora collection in 2012, which had a few products in this gorgeous rose gold packaging. But you can still buy this highlighter online!
Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Highlighter in Rose Illumination is the perfect rose gold highlighter. It’s a light peachy pink with gold shimmer running through it when you swatch it heavily. But when you blend it it’s more of a warm champagne pink. It’s very flattering and just gorgeous!
It’s a pressed powder in the huge compact. It’s very buttery soft and blends very well. The amount you pick up on one swipe is probably enough but you can build it up depending on how intense you want it to be.
The effect it gives is subtle but very distinct. You won’t see just shimmer all over your face. It stays put in the area you’ve applied and just gives a nice glow to that area. I love wearing this on occasions and dinners.
This also photographs well and you won’t be left with a odd whistecast!
This lasts well throughout the day, almost 7-8 hours. It will just fade eventually but the shimmer won’t disperse everywhere.
The packging is so gorgeous. It feels a bit heavy in your hand and the compact is quite large. It also comes with a mirror which is always handy.
It’s pricey at £19.55 (Around 2000) but I got it at a discount from FeelUnique. You do get 10g of product which is massive and you won’t be running out of this for a long long time.
