Customisation has been a huge trend in beauty of late and so Arden have developed a collection of eyeshadows that allows you to make you’re own compact from a selection of ten different colour-ways. The formula is really good.

The formulation is very impressive. They are soft and creamy and the colour payoff is great. My favourites are You Had Me At Merlot, Forever Plum, Bronzed To Be and Not So Nude..

The shadows are enriched with Vitamin E and a complex of four silky, spherical ingredients that have a bouncy cream-like texture with soft-focus properties. Retinyl Palmitate creates a smoothing effect on the lid and Mica based pearls reflect light for a multidimensional effect on the eyes.

The Elizabeth Arden Little Black Compact launches 1st February along with the rest of the Eyes Wide Open Collection. You basically choose two trios, and the matte mirrored black compact it comes in is complimentary. The price is £36.  Find it here
