NEW YORK IN BLOOM: Elizabeth Arden’s Limited Edition Spring/Summer 2013 Collection…
Today I shot the new collection from Elizabeth Arden – NEW YORK IN BLOOM. Inspired by the vibrancy of blossoming flowers in the city, New York in Bloom blends a kaleidoscope of bold, urban colours and soft neutrals. This is Elizabeth Arden’s new Spring/Summer 2013 Limited Colour Collection and it is beyond amazing. It’s not just the beautiful packaging that caught my eye – the product is stunning! Set into palettes embossed with delicate blooms so lovely – you almost don’t want to touch them they are that pretty!
From the intelligently packaged 2-in-1 nail varnish (finally someone had the nous to combine a base/top coat with the actual nail colour), the colour combination of the eyeshadow palette, through to the bronzer that has such a fabulous iridescence it could actually be used as a face illuminator or highlighter, and don’t even get me started on the eye pencil in ‘platinum’ – the perfect hue to set off the tones in the shadow palettes, this collection is set to bit a huge hit for Elizabeth Arden.
Pure Finish Radiant Bronzing Powder
This is available in both ‘Soft’ and ‘Warm’. I opted for ‘soft’ as there is enough of a golden bronze colour to give a beautiful sun-kissed glow when used as a bronzer, yet includes enough light iridescent hues to be able to use it as a face illuminator or highlighter.
Eye Shadow Trio
Available in Viridian Bloom (blue/green) and Violet Bloom (pink/violet). A trio of colours that compliment each other perfectly with a matte chocolate and a shimmery blush-pink and nude. I’ve opted for Violet Bloom as these colours best compliment green or hazel eyes – I cant wait to get started on a tutorial using this palette.
Nail Lacquer Duo
Available in Purple Orchid and Teal Blossom. Containing a quality base/top coat that makes for a compact 2-in-1 and the perfect size to pop into your purse (great for OCD people like me as it’s perfect for nail touch-ups on the go!).
Bold Eye Pencil
Available in Iridescent Teal, Platinum Glow and Terra. I chose ‘platinum’ as this is the most unique colour I’ve ever seen in an eye pencil. A gorgeous glowing hue that looks like a cross between a nude and white, yet not quite a cream. Very hard to describe but its warm and soft yet bold and bright all the same time. Perfect to blend with the violet bloom eye-shadow trio and will make for a fabulous eye-brightener when applied on the inner eye-line.
Stay tuned for a tutorial and swatches coming up on the blog very soon! I thought given this is a Limited Edition colour collection the most important thing was to share it with you now! Plus who can resist a spring photo-shoot when you have a collection this beautiful!
