ELIZABETH ARDEN SPARKLE ON HOLIDAY COLLECTION - PALLETE


The most charming and gracious time of the year when people are somehow happier, that is, Christmas and New Year are behind us. Except for jolly spirit, fairs and festive ambience, the prominent feature of this period are gifts. The selection is truly omnifarious and many brands make an extra effort to devise and market apposite packagings and boxes that anyone would love to see beneath the Christmas tree. One of the cherished Christmas memories from my childhood is Advent calendar. I vividly remeber how, as a little girl and from the beginning of December, I had been eagerly opening miniature houses with chocolates and mesmerizingly examining their imaginative shapes, and then eat them. I felt like I was receiving a new small present every day, until the main and big one on Christmas. To my immense joy, this year I was greeted by the Elizabeth Arden Sparkle On Holiday Collection.
Once I've read a quotation: „Grow up, but keep the child in you alive.“ Lamentably, as we get older, under the pressure of responsibility, work and everyday life fraught with numerous obligations, duties and commitments, we often forget about that children's enthusiasm. However, George Bernard Shaw excellently pointed out: „We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.“ I absolutely agree, because children are sometimes great teachers, they still believe in magic and miracles, in Easter Bunny and of course Santa Claus. Personally, like a child, I continue to relish in chocolate calendars, but I remark that cosmetic ones doesn't exactly delights me. Despite of lovely exposure and the idea of 24 products tryout, I don't prefer to pile them up and I think that sample bottles of few milliliters aren't sufficient for a definitive purchase decision. I'm much more in favor of beauty sets with several full-size items, wonderfully packed and ultimately cheaper.
In two preceeding instances I've written about EstéeLauder 2017. Holiday Set and 2018.Blockbuster Set which included the combination of skincare preparations and makeup, and now I'll maintain the focus on Elizabeth Arden Sparkle On Collection. The gorgeous red bag that is not available in free sale contains 4 lipsticks, 2 glosses, Grand Entrance mascara, eye pencil, 2 blushes and 2 eye shadow palettes. The advantage of similar assortments is doubly lower price compared to individual variants, and the purses, due to their practicality, flexibility and handy fitting into any suitcase, are convenient travelling companions.
Sparkle On Holiday Collection consists exclusively of makeup and cards with suggestions for creating the perfect look, and in this post I will concentrate on a pair of palettes, because after applying the foundation, I pay considerable attetion to my eyes. The black plastic casings are extremely lightweight, the lid is decorated with golden sequins that reflects sprakle on theme and emanates with elegance and luxury, while upon unlatching a large mirror and 8 shades of shadows will flare at you.
The first palette inclose hues with tiny glitter and glow particles, viewed from left to right: Spotlight – pure white, Pink Pearls – pink with peach undertone, Flirty Pink – almost invisible pink with glinting trace, Antique Rose – metallic brown, Pink Satin – virtually identical to Flirty Pink, Rose – radiant copper, Dazzling Plum – plum color with brownish tinge, Winter's Night – black-silver for the outter eye corner and the final makeup step. Some of them are nearly imperceptible when employed, stronger pigmentation distinguishes Antique Rose, Rose, Dazzling Plum and Winter's Night, but all of them are easily blended.
The second palette in corresponding emballage, but with opposing spangle placement, also promotes 8 nuances, in the same order: Bone – white with yellow undertone, Innocent – white with pink undertone, Golden Sands – striking gold, Gilded Bronze – unfortunately barely visible bronze, Tinsel – silver, Bejeweled – gentle metallic purple, Deep Amethyst – purple-copper, Starry Night – intense dark blue. Unlike the previous ones, the colors here are significantly more pigmented and ideal for the night look.   
Elizabeth Arden offer usually involves eye shadow trio palette with shades assembled according to our own inclinations so the number 8 seems quite good, especially regarding the total sum of 16. In addition, this brand is primarily oriented toward neutral appearance and what I like is simple blending, consistency and absence of shedding. I have to admit, though, that the pigmentation is not at the level of Jeffree Star for example, but, since the area above my eye lids is somewhat receded downwardly, when I complete a certain look it doesn't project all that well anyway. That's why these subtle hues are appropriate for me and I use the first palette more frequently, unmistakable choice for daily occasions.

  4. The looks like a great holiday collection, such good value too! I really like the look of the palette with the pinky hues. Shame that it's not the most pigmented but I don't think that's always necessary as long as they apply nicely x

  47. The hues of the shadows are magical. But I'm less enthusiastic about glitter - unless it's very subtle.
