The New York In Bloom Spring 2013 Collection from Elizabeth Arden has some absolutely beautiful packaging. This eye shadow trio is housed in a golden compact with clear plastic set into the lid that reveals a purple and mirrored flower design below with the Red Door logo embossed in the center. Inside the compact you will find the Elizabeth Arden New York In Bloom Collection Violet Bloom Eye Shadow Trio ($38 CAD/$32 US) is a refreshing alternative for neutral look.
The shades include a nicely pigmented metallic taupe, very sheer soft pink with flecks of iridescent glitter, and a matte deep smokey violet grey that is very sheer yet that makes this intimidating in the pan shade, very soft and wearable in the crease.
When I swatched this palette I was, at first, very disappointed in the pigmentation level of the pink and smoky violet grey. While the pink does indeed make for a very subtle effect the sheerness of the smokey grey creates a really lovely haze of colour in the crease that you can build up a little more in the outer corner. The overall effect of the palette is a very pretty, soft, romantic, neutral eye.
