This Summer 2014, Elizabeth Arden released the Summer Escape New Colour Collection with beautiful nautical themed make up packaging. The collection features a selection of bronzers, gloss sticks ($25 a pop), cream eyeshadows, a highlighter ($35), nail polishes and two duo eyeliner pencils.
I am quite fond of the highlighter and gloss sticks but the highlight of this collection for me is the Beautiful Color Define and Highlight Eyeliner Duo in #Cast Away.
As the name suggests, this is a dual ended eyeliner pencil that both define and highlight all at one go, how handy is it?
#Cast Away features both a deep brown shade and a light, creamy pearly shade. Now that I have eye lash extension on for months, I have slowly stepped away from eye make up altogether but this certainly got me back to the game. A little touch of highlight in the inner corner and lower lash line helps to brighten and make my eyes appear bigger and the deep brown shade is perfect to line the outer corner of my eye and a slight smudge on the upper corner of my eye for that winged eye look.
Both colours are super blendable (they contain jojoba oil, cotton seed oil, vitamin C and E, Mica minerals) so if you like me can go a little heavy handed, you can easily smudge some away with a cotton bud.
The Beautiful Color Define and Highlight Eyeliner Duo is clinically, dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested so it is safe for even sensitive eyes to use. I took this with me on my holiday trip to Japan recently and boy did it last a great deal despite the humid weather and it came in so handy for touch ups and it did not irritate my eyes at all.
