We all want the best of both worlds. We want our cake and we want to eat it too. Hmmm, cake. Okay, let’s focus now. The new Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Bold liquid lipsticks combine the best aspects of a lipstick and a lipgloss – a marriage made in heaven. This liquid lipstick is described as a creamy, high impact lip colour with the coverage and intensity of a lipstick and the finish of a lipgloss. Sounds perfect, wouldn’t you agree?
The Elizabeth Arden liquid lipsticks are housed in a ‘pen-style’ tube with a soft, sponge applicator, which makes for a super smooth and even application. The padded sponge also helps with control and perfectly defining your lips, even thin lips like mine. The collection boasts 7 stunning shades, all richly pigmented and offering your lips a ‘juicy’ appearance – my lips look like I’m been snacking on raspberries all day. However, the most interesting characteristic about these lipsticks is the ‘push up button’ which dispenses the product. This limits the amount of wastage as the perfect amount of lipstick is pumped out on each ‘click’.
These vividly coloured liquid lipsticks feel comfortable on your lips, are long-wearing and don’t bleed at all. The initial glossiness does fade after a while and you’re left with a lovely ‘stain’. I’ve been very impressed with these and if you’re a pink type of girl then you will love the shade ‘Seductive Magenta’. You can purchase these from Elizabeth Arden counters for R295.
