Elizabeth Arden – Sueded Browns Palette

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 5 - 2011

I’m already the proud owner of Sueded Brown’s little sister, Velvet Plumtones so I couldn’t help but pick this one up too when I saw it in the ‘sale’ box on counter in John Lewis.  I paid half price for this little palette.  A total snip a £12.50!

I love these Color Intrigue palettes… I mean, OK, they’re not hugely exciting in shade selection but they’re wearable, high quality shadows that are hard to screw up.  They blend beautifully, last forever on my lids and have a beautiful satin sheen without being too metallic.

4 shades ranging from a pale highlight through to a v. dark charcoal brown which I”m addicted to using as a liner.

Aren’t they rich?  The highlight shade *is* there by the way, it’s just pretty damn close to my skin tone as a colour match!

So, that leaves one palette left to collect…. the Neutral Cashmeres.  I know I can get it in the ‘ordinary’ packaging but I’d quite like to complete my set of 100th Anniversary ones!  I will have to keep my eyes peeled!

Do you own any Elizabeth Arden cosmetics?

    Elizabeth Arden is like the penny candy bin in a candy store filled with expensive other treats. I love Elizabeth Arden because of this; you still get the quality but you don’t pay as much for it. Anyway, love the palette and what a good find…can’t believe it was in the bargain bin

    EA always pulls off rich beautiful bronzes. I may have to peak around and see if they are Stateside.

    This is gorgeous! The colours are so pigmented, I never bothered with EA because I always thought I was too young for it but now I’m going to if the colours are that nice. This looks very similar to the Boots No7 palette they had a while ago (it’s LE) but I picked it up in the Xmas sale for £4..so it’s like a more expensive dupe? I’m going to try and track this down as that palette I’ve been using is all but gone.
