Contour, define and glow! It all begins with radiant, glowing skin—the perfect canvas to paint upon from
a palette of rich forest green and matte brown with accents of shimmering golden metallics. The finishing touches include an artful stroke of intense black liner to the lids and a sexy swipe of peachy-orange shine to the lips.

“Elizabeth Arden’s new Golden Opulence Collection captures the opulent and baroque trends from the fashion runways in an extremely wearable color palette,” says Rebecca Restrepo, Elizabeth Arden Global Makeup Artist. “The highlighter offers women a way to make a statement with their skin—glowing and radiant, yet natural—and the four shadow palette and liquid liner are the perfect tools for building from simple to dramatic in seconds.”

The Golden Opulence Collection includes:

LIMITED EDITION Beautiful Color Highlighter in Gold Illumination ($53.00)
This tri-tone, shimmering powder highlighter adds an instant soft, natural glow to the skin. The compact includes shades of champagne, gold, and bronze formulated with microlight minerals, vitamins, and environmental protectants to soothe the skin while masking fine lines and wrinkles with light-diffusing minerals.

LIMITED EDITION Beautiful Color Eye Shadow Quad ($48.00)
This majestic palette includes four beautiful shades that can be combined and built upon to create an infinite number of looks, from subtly sexy to decadently daring: a deep metallic emerald, a sparkling pink champagne, a stunning matte brown, and a glimmering gold.

LIMITED EDITION Beautiful Color High Intensity Liquid Eye Liner in Jet Black ($28.00)
A water-resistant liquid liner that lasts throughout the day without smudging or running. The liner supplies high-intensity color for creating a customized look, from ultra-thin to super dramatic. The felt tip and ergonomic grip ensures maximum precision and even application.

LIMITED EDITION Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss in Imperial Shimmer ($25.00)
A moisture-rich lip gloss in a shimmering orangey-peach shade that will give lips long-wearing, sensual color and shine while also conditioning and adding fullness.

The Elizabeth Arden Golden Opulence Fall 2015 Color Collection is available at Shoppers Drug Mart, Hudson’s Bay, and London Drugs.
