  1. elizabeth arden doesn't do foundation for Dark skin tone. I'm surprised Bobbi Brown didn't come up for dark skin tone too.

  2. Hello there, Elizabeth Arden does and Adeola Ariyo is the first African Ambassador( New development)

  3. I actually know about the "new development". I have quite a dark skin tone, I wanted to switch to Elizabeth Arden because of the good reviews unfortunately, the Elizabeth Arden consultant tried the darkest shade on me and it was ashy. She actually referred me to Bobbi Brown. This happened last sunday so I know what I am talking about. Except if they have got a bespoke line for Africa. I live in England at the moment, so I can't be sure about that. Am not saying people with light skin tones and medium skin tones can't use Elizabeth Arden, am just saying from my personal Experience, there's not much for Dark skin tones so it can't be referred to as one the best for Dark skin tones.

  4. Hello, Others(dark skin) have tried Elizabeth Arden and it worked for them, and about your experience.. to each his own. There are other brands x
