This product is from the Rose Aurora Spring/Summer 2012 collection. The collection is a mix of bronzes and rose tones with beautiful rose gold packaging. The packaging is really beautiful. This is my first Elizabeth Arden makeup item. I always associated them with an older audience but I think with this collection they certainly are appealing to a younger crowd who loves Rose Gold since its very trendy now. The powder is very creamy and smooth and blends out well. It has a similar consistency to thebalm Marylouminizer.
I compared this to my other highlighters that I have and its not close to any of them. So no dupes for me. Which is great because who needs two of the same highlighters. I think even if you are fair skin (which I am) you can wear this color. It probably would look great on tan skin too. Compared to theBalm mary-lou manizer its more pinky/gold and compared to Benefit Watts Up its more pink while Watts Up is more gold. It's not at all like Benefit High Beam as that is more light pink sheen with no gold. I think that this is a great shade for Spring/Summer, as well as into Fall a bit. I'm really looking forward to using this more.
