Bronzers -Elizabeth Arden - Pure Finish Mineral Bronzing Powder

This is a very good bronzer. I have it in medium. It looks beautiful and flawless with my NC 25 skin.
Okay, absolutely NOTHING has been able to get the "crack" out of my lips...until I discovered this product. It is the only one that acually makes my lips feel soft, supple and not dry. I never figured I would find one that would heal my lips. The only thing I do not like about it is i feel the stick is a little flimsy, I am afraid to press on my lips too hard for fear that it will break.
I am almost 48 years old and have been experimenting in the beauty industry skin care for twenty years. I have never found a product that worked so well so fast on my skin. I had lots of liver spots, melasma, and wrinkles, uneven skin tone. Prevage face absolutely resolved most of my issues. my skin was a little red at first, but I kept at it. I understand that there is NO other product out there except in little town of Swedon that has idebenone and ergothianine in it. I understand that these are the ONLY two products that penetrate INSIDE the cell to kill free radicals, while all other antioxidants kill free radicals on the OUTSIDE of the cell. Wow, how powerful that is. NOw it makes sense to me why it worked so well on me and my skin.
I received this as part of my gratis for working at a retail store. I also received a sample of Prevage. The two working together gave me an unbelievable appearance after just THREE days! I could not get over how clear, clean, creamy and smooth I looked. After a couple of weeks, I noticed tiny flesh bumps on my forehead, so I have dialed back the amount of times I clarisonic my face a week. The bumps disappeared and I am happy again. I use it about once every three to five days and sometimes do not do my forehead at all. I know what it is, the prevage is SO powerful, I have to be careful and I do have sensitive skin. I love the two together!

This toner is the bomb. I absolutely love it. I even have oily skin and it still makes my face beautiful. Makeup/and or powder glides beautifully on my skin after using it. It feels very balanced.

Okay, this is a phenomenal brush...soooooo soft and applies my powder like a dream. I am VERY VERY picky about my powder brushes and this one is a definite front runner.
Mascara -Elizabeth Arden - Double Density Maximum Volume Mascara

This is a really good mascara. It really POPPED my eyes after I put it on. IT makes the lashes long and a little on the thick side. I was quite surprised that this produces such a lovely set of eye lashes for me.
Okay, I love this product so much that I went to Ulta and had them try to mix two different colors on me SO THAT I COULD WEAR THE STUFF. That is how much I love this stuff. The PUR minerals freelancer mixed the new tan with light and it made me glow. No doubt. I love the way it makes my skin look. I use an old Prescriptives buff brush I bough fifteen years ago, and it looks beautiful. At work, I use the TooFaced kabuki brush and it looks even better. I represent several lines at my department store and kept coming back to this one. Ulta had more updated product than I did and I had to try this out. I feel so beautiful now. My imperfections are smoothed over and I look well... magical if that even makes sense.I am 47 so I needed something to give my look a kick in the pants yet look natural.
I mix this one with the new Lavender green tea, and it is delightful. I've noticed I have been in a better mood when I wear it. Something about the fragrance must be aromatic. Aromatherapy is definitely working here. I feel fresh, happy and exhillarated.

Been using this stuff for a week. IT IS THE BOMB. I love the smell. I love what it is doing to my face. There is no other thing out there that compares...............God help me. You've answered my prayers. My skin in even, looking younger. Sun spots are leaving my face...even my acne is clearing up. The oily areas on my face are becoming more balanced..need I say more? Holy Jesus, Joseph and Mary.........
Skincare - Face -Elizabeth Arden - Prevage Anti-aging treatment

Well let me just tell you. I started working for an Arden counter and received Prevage at starting. My SKIN HAS TRANSFORMED INTO "BEAUTIFULNESS" (is that a word?) My skin feels like a ten year olds....my dark spots have evened out. I look....I can't even describe how I look.......there are no words. I am 47 and do not look 47. My coloring, texture and yes even acne have improved. I will use this stuff forever. The smell is even wonderful.........
I bought these at KMart for buy one, get second 50% off. They are wonderful. Look beautiful on my lips with a touch of color and shine. Don't make my lips look old. They sort of make them look "plumper" if that makes sense. I bought Pink Lemonade- light sheer pink. and Raspberry- beautiful reddish sort of pink-more pigmented.
Powder -American Beauty - Super Plush Powder Foundation
tonkatoy 6/5/2011 2:03:00 PM
This is a wonderful powder/foundation. It is the first one that does not test on animals I have been able to find that actually gives me that dreamy, creamy, air brushed (as much as I can look like that at 46 yrs old) look. I tried it at Kohls, had a fifteen percent discount card and bought it. Had to wait until the product came in as it had been out for awhile- my particular color. It looks good on my tanned skin, and even if I lose some of the tan , it still looks good. I got the third one in the warm family. There were two others that were lighter than mine. CAn't remember the color. Too lazy to go downstairs to get it. This stuff is beautiful. Stays on all day. Have not broken out yet. Only use it when I'm going out though. Mostly makeup less .Sometimes I just use the powder and other times I put it on top of my Paula's Choice foundation or my American Beauty Diamond foundation.

Okay, went to TJ Max and found this box opened, decided to sneak and use it. OH MY GOD...it is the most exhillarating, fresh, but not too sweet fragrance...i walked around the store looking at other stuff, and ...well.......just felt absolutely special and beautiful the whole time. Everything seemed new and crisp. I will go back and buy it once I get paid this weekend.. it was 29.00 at TJ...good price from what I can tell.

Finally found out Kate is definitely against animal testing....she warns against it...therefore, I would think her own products are not tested on animals. I will probably try this then, since it has SO many rave reviews.
