Elizabeth Arden x Reese Witherspoon March On Lipstick

I’m really inspired by Elizabeth Arden, the namesake of the brand and company that continues her legacy. In 1912 Elizabeth Arden marched down Fifth Avenue, handing red lipstick to the suffragettes a as symbol of solidarity. She had so much female power and a legacy that the company continues to carry down to their choice of spokeswomen. How fabulous is Reese Witherspoon!?!? Their latest #TogetherWeMarchOn initiative is really amazing and I could not be more in support. They designed the perfect red “March On” lipstick in collaboration with Reese as part of their March On campaign. This initiative is designed to celebrate women’s achievements, encourage women to support each other and they have pledged to donate 100% of the proceeds of the ‘March On‘ lipstick, that’s $1 million dollars to the UN Women in support of their work to advance women’s issues worldwide.

Reese Witherspoon and Elizabeth Arden are both women that have personally inspired me. They stood/stand for something greater, they aren’t boxed in by what they can do. I remember an interview

New Elizabeth Arden Gelato Crush Color Collection

What’s better on a hot summer day than indulging in ice cream and playing with makeup? We joined the Elizabeth Arden team at Cool Mess NYC to celebrate the launch of their new Gelato Crush Color Collection, which included 22 new plumping lipsticks, 10 lip liners and 4 cheek tints. The collection launches next week so here’s a sneak peek!

Elizabeth Arden Plump Up Lip Liner, $21

Definitely the rockstar of the group, these super pigmented lipliners and boosted with peptides to plump! And they actually do! The smooth and creamy formula is great to shape and defines lips or use all over lips as a base to lock in color for long-wear. Seriously, this liner stays on so well and I definitely felt the plumping effect!

First Look: Elizabeth Arden Liquid Assets Color Collection


Earlier this week, I hit up the #BRINGONTHEBOLD launch party for Elizabeth Arden’s new Liquid Assets Color collection consisting of the new Beautiful Color Bold Liquid Lipsticks ($22) in 9 shades, Beautiful Bold Defining 24HR Liquid Eye Liners ($24.50) in 5 shades and Beautiful Color Bold Illuminating Liquid Highlighter ($25) in one shade, Golden Kiss. The collection will launch in July and below are swatches and product details!


Beautiful Color Bold Illuminating Liquid Highlighter

Available in one shade, Golden Kiss gives a translucent golden shimmer that goes on smooth and with flexibility. The lightweight soft gel formula is easy to apply anywhere from cheeks to eyelid or under the brow for a pretty highlight that isn’t heavy or anything dramatic. Just a very pretty, natural shimmer and color enhancer. It features mineral pearls of mica and titanium dioxide that help reflect light and diffuse sparkle to create a multidimensional effect.Elizabeth-Arden-Beautiful-Color-Bold-Illuminating-Liquid-Highlight

Beautiful Color Bold Liquid Lipstick


Now that every brand has launched mattes and summer is here I’ve seen a definite trend towards liquid lipsticks being the next hot ticket — which I’m all for! Available in 9 shades, 8 of which I swatched above at thee event. They go on wet and then dry to a more neutral, smooth gloss finish that’s very comfortable and stays in place.

I took home shade, Pink Lover, which some of you may have seen me test on snapchat (@prettyconnected). I have dark lips and Pink Lover gave a very natural everyday dusted pink hue. I’ve been rocking it all week and put the above on instagram as part of Charlie and my look for tonights Pride party.


The packaging looks like a vaporizer (ignore the more standard gloss tubes two pictures up, those were just for testing. The final packaging is what you see above, with the clicker visible in the center that deposits the color to the sponge.

1. After much anticipation (and hype) Elizabeth Arden’s SUPERSTART Skin Renewal Booster launched this week. The breakthrough product is designed to boosts skin’s ability to renew itself and enhance every product you put on over it. The texture is amazing. It’s super light weight and absorbs in seconds into skin.

Get a Flawless Finish with Elizabeth Arden

Foundations have got to be one of the toughest products to get right. If the formula is great, the shade is off, if the shade is right it then dries a different color within minutes of application (I could go on with my grievances forever). It’s rare to find a product that combines 24-hours of color-true makeup that recognizes the skin’s oil levels to control excess sebum without clogging pores. Correction: It’s nearly impossible…until now!

Elizabeth Arden Long Island

As you can probably imagine I’ve been to my fair share of spas but I’m embarrassed the say, that past my immediate family, I’ve never done a spa day with the girls. Maybe it’s because I work in the industry, or subliminally consider being pampered my “me” time but if there’s one thing I learned it’s everything it’s cracked up to be in the movies.
