Elizabeth Arden Lipsticks Review + My 1st Giveway ♡

Hey Guys,

So I'm back with another review, a post that I'm quite excited to share because it involves my very first giveaway!! Yep, my first ever giveway, I'll get into that at the very end of the post, aah I see you all scrolling down, haha, I'd be guilty of that too. But lets get into the review first, I was kindly sent a handful of Elizabeth Arden lipsticks from their Cermide Ultra* and Beautiful Colour Moisturizing* range and I knew as soon as I received the lot, I knew I had to do a giveaway, so I emailed the EA team to see if that was possible and I got the thumbs up ...
Packaging + Applicator
Because the lipsticks are from different ranges, they have different textures and finishes, so I will outline that in each paragraph but the packaging is really similar. Both lipsticks are nice and sturdy, they've got some weight to them which I love because you know it's not going to slip out of your hands whilst you're applying any last minute makeup on the train, yep, none of that around here. Also, the lipstick is packaged in gold hardware which by far is my most favorite aspect about these because the gold adds such a lovely luxury appeal and just makes the application feel special.
The Cermide lipsticks are in a sort of cylinder shape whereas the Moisturising ones are more of a square rectangular shape. In terms of application, they're standard lipstick bullets, reaches all the awkward places nicely and all in all, they have allow for a smooth application.

Formulation
The Ceramide and Moisturizing lipsticks both are extremely pigmented, they're full of colour and richness. And what I've found is that they're really pure, which may sound weird but I've had lipsticks before which can be a little grainy and have those tiny little bits in it but these are really smooth. Upon application, they glide on really naturally and smoothly in the sense that there isn't any tugging of the lips. Both also have creamy, shiny finishes that leave the lips feeling comfortable and moisturised.
The Ceramide Ultra Lipsticks*: These I find have add much more of a sheen and shine to the lips, they are infused with volulip which adds a lovely, subtle plump and adds that tiny more definition to the lips.
The Beautiful Moisturising*: I would have to say, this range is slightly more moisturising but doesn't have as much sheen and shine as the above range. Likewise, these also include the volulip element, however, you do need two swipes of the lipstick to get most out of the colour.

Wear ability
In terms of the lipsticks longevity, they're pretty much the same. They last a good few hours but you do need to reapply after a hearty meal. They also are quite easy to remove when you come to your nighttime cleanse, however, there can be an annoying element, my lips were slightly stained, of course the stain came off overnight and when I washed my face in the morning.
The Circular Packaging = The Cermaide Ultra Lipsticks. The Rectangular Packaging = Beautiful Colour Moisturizing Lipsticks.

The Shades:
The Cerminde Ultra Lipsticks:
Magenta Bubbly*: A pure magenta pink, full of bright colour.
Amethyst*: A true nude, hints of brown and glitter shine.
Ginger*: An orange-y browny nude.

The Beautiful Colour Moisturizing Lipsticks:
Bold Red*: A classic 'Christmas' red.
Chocolate*: Strong, deep, dark chocolate brown. (genuinely smells like chocolate too!!)
Breathless*: An iconic pinky, everyday, natural nude. (My Fave!!)

And thats it for today's post, lol I'm joking, all the giveaway details are below:

  13. I love Amethyst, Breathless and also Chocolate! Chocolate is so pretty and definitely a classy brown shade. It kind of reminds me of the iconic Brown lip trend from the 90s? The other two shades (Breathless and Amethyst)are very on trend with what I've been seeing lots of people wearing lately. Thank you for this post Trishna, you've made my wishlist just grew by about 3 lipsticks lol.

  40. I love how you did the swatches for these, hun! So creative and pretty. <3 I really like Elizabeth Arden makeup, I feel that it's a little underrated! I've tried a couple of their lipsticks and they were absolutely fab, and they offer some lovely mascaras, also. I really like the look of these lippies, so many gorgeous shades to choose from! I think that Amethyst is my favourite here. <3 Thanks for sharing this lovely giveaway, you're so kind! xoxo <3
