  • Elizabeth Arden

    Hi girls,

    any raves or rants about this makeup brand? I made a search and it seems like there is no thread on them i.e cosmetics.

    I saw their holiday palette and it retails at $90 and it consists of so many stuff! Im really tempted to get it for a gift for someone but just not too sure if they are any good?

    Any advices?

    They're OK, Mylar. I bought one moons ago. I liked the e/s colours better cos the blushers were two only and they looked dull. Texture-wise, I guess they're comparable to the mid-end brands if not high-end.

    I'm not sure if $90 is a good deal. I suppose if you fancy it for yourself, you'd consider buying it as a gift Hope this bit of comments helps!

      I used to be totally fascinated by the Elizabeth Arden holiday blockbuster sets! Got one eons ago as well, although I've long tossed it away already.

      Same with Glossie, I found the set ok. Initially it's quite exciting cos there are so many items and i had tons of fun playing with it and experimenting with different looks (didn't have much m/u at that time though) Quality is ok, but not all the shades in the set are very nice or wearable. EA shades do tend to be on the 'mature' side.

      I haven't seen this year's set yet, but if it looks good to you then you could get it as a gift. I think it'll be good for someone who likes makeup, but doesn't have much, and wants to experiment with a wide range of colours.

        Hi girls,

        thanks for the feedback. Thought of getting it for my mum but after some thoughts, i guess not. Maybe she wont have a need for so many colours too.

        Thanks alot for your advices!!

            I bought the one last yr. I was impressed with its variety and supposed 'value for money'. Actually $90 isn't exactly cheap cos you may not like everything in the set. Overall the quality is good, comparable with any high end brand. I gave the bright red lipstick and nail polish to my aunt

            The blusher is not bad to me. I thought the dusky pink shade was really nice and subtle. Eyeshadow colours were subtle also. Good for work day.

            I was mostly attracted to the 3 shimmery lipglosses. Very nice and shiny. And totally un-EA

            It beats the ridiculous 5 pan Bobbi Brown ski palette which retails at $85. (2 lipsticks, 1 blusher, 1 eyeliner pan and 1 eyeshadow)

              Have anyone of u seen the $99 set? i just saw it in robinsons.. it came out after the $90 blockbuster. it includes a cosmetic bag, cosmetic holder via wallet, gold and silver eyeliner and 3 layers bottle of eye glitter etc... with add. $9 this is a better package IMO.

              anyway, the makeup primer is better and many cabin crews are using...

                  I Love their 8 hr cream.

                  Works well for anything, from dryness of skin to my dog's sore.

                  Very good product. Not very ex, $37/50ml. One tub can last for long time.

                      Anyone using Elizabeth Arden's Flawless Finish Ultra Smooth PP? How's the oil-control & coverage?

                        im using the Flawless Finish pp not the Ultra Smooth version. It's quite good. Gives a fresh look and long lasting. Good for my open pores and oily t-zone area. The complexion looks quite smooth and perfect. I guess the Ultra Smooth version is the same as this just that the powder is more fine and smooth??

                          Btw how's the coverage & how much is it?

                            i bought it online at www.strawberrynet.com. It costs about less than $30. Coverage wise it's quite light but its buildable.
