The weather is really heating up in the city so it’s time to break-out the beautiful bronzers and indulge in bright pops of color. The Tropical Escapes Collection by Elizabeth Arden combines stylish seasonal hues with just the right amount of glitz to keep you glowing from head-to-toe!
The Sheer Kiss Lip Oils ($25.00 ea) are luxurious and luscious! The formula is loaded with coconut, avocado, tsubaki - (Japanese camellia) and medowfoam oils that drench lips in nourishing moisture for hours of dryness relief. This rich, antioxidant blend also contains Vitamin E, plant extracts and soothing conditioners to heal, rejuvenate and protect.
The collagen supporting ingredients, plump, firm and improve texture so chapped, rough skin appears healthy, luminous and youthful. The trendy design and globular center makes them easy to locate in my purse and the vibrant color shows through prominently. To use: simply pop off the cap and squeeze the center to eject the creamy oil. Unfortunately the little caps are not actually attached so dropping or losing them is a grim possibility.
The small application surface is just large enough to distribute and spread the pretty color or you can apply it with your finger. The 6 available shades are flattering on all skin tones and provide a hint of sheer, glistening color. Although the pigments are oil-infused, the consistency isn’t greasy or heavy and there is no stickiness. They feel supple, comfortable and very hydrating for instant alleviation of discomfort and tightness.
I love the sweet vanilla scent and the diffused vibrancy makes them very wearable. The rejuvenating formula goes far beyond basic lip oil or balm - it actually helps mend and replenish the skin while softening.
The FourEver Bronze Powder ($45.00) contains highlight, blush, contour and bronzer in one travel-friendly compact. Use it to sculpt, enhance dimension, brighten, and create the perfect flush with a silky, matte finish. The moisturizing properties and vitamin infusion helps reduce the effects of environmental assaults and absorb excess oil so skin is smooth and balanced.
The powder is easy to blend and the colors can be layered individually or all-together to customize your level of bronze and blur the look of wrinkles without caking.
For an all-over glow, the limited edition Dare to Bare Body Bronzing Oil ($45.00) makes your limbs appear sunkissed and gorgeous! Infused with the scent of vanilla and coconut, each application transports you to the tropics while illuminating your body in a veil of gold shimmer. Key ingredients include: jojoba, macadamia, sunflower, meadowfoam and pomegranate oils plus a healthy dose of antioxidants and vitamins to quench dry skin and blur wrinkles. Keep in mind that this is not a tanning product so it does not leave behind unsightly streaks or color. Think of it as a silky body highlighter that provides natural looking luster that gradually wears away. The bottle does not come with a pump or applicator of any kind but I love the sparkle and hydration.
