Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Bronzing Powder Duo
Hello Everyone 🙂
This is my first review on this blog and I hope I’ll be writing many more useful reviews.
Just the other day, I went shopping with mom for my birthday and I was in search of a good bronzer. I thought I’d get Maybelline Dream Mousse Bronzer, but I couldn’t find it at Inorbit Mall and my mom was so reluctant to spare another day for my shopping that I had to adjust with something. As you all know, there are very less bronzers in the Indian market that half the people are unaware of what bronzers are. So, I went to every store and asked the women there if they had any good bronzers and to my shock and surprise, most of them couldn’t even understand the term!! I chuckled every time the lady put a blank face when I inquired about bronzers (I had to explain to most of them and a few got me blushes! Hahaha! 😛
Well then, a lady from Elizabeth Arden told me that they had a very good bronzer and I thought I’d give it a try and so I went to check it out.
I’ll tell you how the product says it would help you.
“Rich, true color sweeps on for a natural, bronze glow. Duo features two blendable shades for an ideal bronzing effect.”
So evidently, this is a duo. It has got two shades of bronzers, one light and the other dark. The packaging is quite good and I liked it. 🙂 I’ve always noticed that Elizabeth Arden comes out with very fresh and smart packaging which beyond any doubt makes me more comfortable with the product.
It comes in the usual Elizabeth Arden case, the black one (I call it bodyguard packaging :P). It’s got a mirror and that hence adds to more comfort of carrying it around.
You get a very good bronzing brush in the pack. I absolutely love the way it helps you to get the bronzer perfectly set on your skin.
You don’t have to worry about the bronzer being orangish in shade. The shade is amazingly flawless, just how a bronzer has to be. Most bronzers could be used as eyeshadows, but this honestly wouldn’t do you the favor. Let’s expect a bronzer to be loyal and do its own job. 😛 It is as summery as a bronzer should be (looks like Elizabeth Arden has followed strict definitions of how a bronzer has to be :P)
Rs. 1160/- for 10.5 g (the price could be a hitch and my mom threw me a plethora of brutal looks when I was getting it billed, but I didn’t bother of course :P)
Pros of Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Bronzing Powder Duo:
- Easily blendable, smooth, and perfect.
- It has a very cute packaging (I’m in love with it).
- You get a bronzing brush with it.
- It’s a duo of light and dark shades.
- Hasn’t got a lot of shimmer (which is not irritating to me :P).
- Very good in quality and does not smudge in any case.
- Good amount of product.
- It could stay up for a reasonable 6-8 hours (I wear it to my college and it stays intact when I come back home).
- Both given shades conflate beautifully and individually they have their own charm too.
Cons of Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Bronzing Powder Duo:
- The price is a little on the exorbitant side. Not many would be happy with its cost, but it’s Elizabeth Arden and you can’t expect a lower price.
- Hasn’t got a variety of shades. I was told this is the only shade available and this doesn’t show up the sun-kissed look and the glow on dark skinned beauties. It looks adorable on fair and medium skin tones though.
- The lighter shade may not be as useful as the darker one because it is too light to be used solely as a bronzer. You need to use the dark shade no matter what, to get your bronzed look.
Would I Buy Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Bronzing Powder Duo Again?
Definitely yes, but I would like to experiment with other promising bronzers as well, but if you’re looking to buy this, then I would definitely ask you to go ahead! It’s a great product, please try! 🙂
