Arden’s Bronze Vibes
One of the beauty brands that flies under the radar a little is Elizabeth Arden. The heritage beauty brand was incredibly influential in the 1930s and 40s throughout America and Europe thanks to innovative formulas and ideas that came from the founder herself. Elizabeth, born in Canada but relocated to New York, was a driven businesswoman who was wildly creative. She created a chain of healthy and beauty spas where women would come for a week to rejuvenate and recharge with pampering beauty routines, healthy cuisine and invigorating exercise. This expertise expanded to her Red Door Spas which exist to the present. If you flip through Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar magazines of that time, you’ll find makeup and skincare ideas which are innovative even today. She created this tube that broke into separate compartments to store powders and creams for travel. She even had an exercise record that allowed you to do the same exercises as at her spa in the comfort of your home.
The spirit of Elizabeth is alive and well in the new Bronze Vibes Colour Collection that boasts a trio of interesting products.
Dare to Bare Bronzing Gel Pearls
This product literally made the beauty buyers cheer when they saw the product. This lightweight gel both refreshes skin and enhances overall colour and glow thanks to innovative gel beads. The beads burst directly onto skin and create a naturally bronzed effect on skin. It’s a safer and healthier alternative to tanning.
Fourever Glow Highlighting Powder
This highlighting palette allows you to create a radiant glow in seconds. Simply apply where the sun naturally hits your face. Swirl together or use separately to contour and sculpt. Mica-based pearls create an iridescent effect while mineral mica and silicone scatters light to boost radiance.
Beautiful Colour Liquid Lip Gloss
More pampering lip balm than traditional gloss, this formula is packed with aloe vera, Vitamins C and E, emollients and esters to keep lips soft and protected. Choose from Berry Vibes or Nude Beam.
Elizabeth Arden is available in Canada at Hudson’s Bay stores and thebay.com
