Miss Arden’s mantra was “To be beautiful is the birthright of every woman.” She didn’t want to just mask faces, but promoted a concept of Total Beauty, including skincare, nutrition and fitness.
The company was founded in 1910 and by the 1930’s her products were used by Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth II, Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy, Marlene Dietrich, Joan Crawford and many other famous women.
Before her big break, Arden went to France to learn the makeover concept, which made her famous. Today we are going to focus on makeup products that come from Elizabeth Arden Company and learn more about them.
Elizabeth Arden was a pioneer who introduced women to new products and made it acceptable for modern women to wear makeup whenever they wanted.
She opened the famous Red Door Salon in 1910, creating a fresh chapter for women all over the world and formulated the first blush and tinted powders in 1912.
However, 100 years later, some might find Arden’s products rather disappointing, mostly because SPF factor is not included in foundations and powders. Others refuse to use products from others companies, so we are going to point out which makeup products are highest rated and why.
In order to write this article, I had to go through many web sites, ask friends, and try to be as objective as possible.
My mother simply adores Arden’s products, especially Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup. It is a great product for women with dry skin, it is long-lasting and you can find a variety in colors, so the makeup can match perfectly with your skin tone.
Another great cover up is Pure Finish Mineral Powder Foundation with SPF 20. It doesn’t clog pores and gives a great natural finish. For a silky skin, I noticed that women really like Intervene Makeup SPF 15, because it is oil free and light on your skin, so it is great for everyday use.
When it comes to mascaras, Arden offers various products, but Ceramide Lash Extending Treatment Mascara and Double Density Maximum Volume Mascara are among the highest rated.
Both of these mascaras make lashes looking volumized while not damaging them, even while removing it. These products cost around 20 $ and it seems they are worth every penny.
Similar things were said about Elizabeth Arden’s eye shadows. They stay on all day on, without fading away too quickly, so if you are looking for a perfect eye shadow, you might want to try out some of these.
Elizabeth Arden lipsticks and lip glosses are also among customers’ favorites. They are also long lasting, although some women find the lipsticks to feel too dry.
However, no one had any complaints about the quality, and most of them found Ceramide Plump Perfect Lipstick to be one of the best if not the best lipstick they ever wore. This lipstick contains a small amount of palmitoyl pentapeptide, but it also rich in ceramides and antioxidants.
Lipstick is not greasy, it lasts longer than similar ones and the color doesn’t fade too easily. The price is little over 20$, which is perfectly acceptable compared to other similar lipsticks.
While it is not easy to describe or even recommend a makeup product to anyone, simply because we have different skin tones, skin types or personal preferences, the best thing to do is to try it out.
You can find Elizabeth Arden make up everywhere and consult with trained professionals if they could recommend you which products are the best for you. While you are at the shop, you might want to check out 8 Hour Cream or some of the perfumes. After all, if a company managed to last this long, why not give it a try?
