While Elizabeth Arden might be best know for their iconic 8 Hour Cream range, take a bit of a detour this season and make sure you check out their SS15 makeup range.
Sunkissed Pearls* is a capsule range that focuses on glowing radiance and pearl highlights, making it easy to achieve that 'glow' that we're always hunting for.
I'm a complete sucker for a pretty looking product and the Sunkissed Pearls Bronzer and Highlighter definitely falls into that category. The embossed design divides up the three powder products - two shades of bronzer and a soft pink-toned highlighter - and almost makes it look too good to use.
The highlighter gives just the right amount of radiance to skin without adding loads of glitter and I love the fact that the two different bronzers give you a range of looks without needing lots of different products. You could quite easily pop this little palette in your bag and you'd have everything you needed for contouring, highlighting and adding radiance. This comes in two different shades - Warm Pearl (pictured) for light to medium skin tones and Deep Pearl for medium to dark skins. £28
For lip gloss lovers, the Sunkissed Pearls Lip Gloss Trio (£28) add moisture to the lips while giving a sheer wash of colour and a high sheen finish. Inside the set are Pink Pearl, Coral Pearl and Berry Pearl which all look pretty bold in the tubes, but actually provide a lovely subtle colour to the lips. These can be used alone or added over a lipstick in a similar shade for a bolder look. I'm not a massive lip gloss user, but I was surprised at how nice the formula on these was. It's not overly sticky and the mango and shea butters in the formula helps hydrate your lips while you wear them.
Also in the range is a Sunkissed Pearls Gel Liner (£17) which for me is a slightly odd addition. This is a deep black shade and I think for a summer range something a little brighter would've been a better fit. That said, the formula is pretty good, although I'd recommend using a better brush than the one provided in the box as I don't think this does the product justice.
There are also three lovely looking cream eye shadow crayons available, in champagne, bronze and teal tones. These are designed to offer a buildable colour and will work well used alone or all together. £19 each.
The Sunkissed Pearls range is currently available on all Elizabeth Arden Counters and from Elizabeth Arden stockists online.
