ELIZABETH ARDEN Ceramide Ultra Lipstick – Watermelon #21

Brand: Elizabeth Arden
Range: Ceramide Ultra Lipstick
Shade:Watermelon #21
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Highly pigmented, glossy and moisturising lipstick that feels moisturised for “up to 20 hours”
  • Infused with plumping ingredients that significantly reduces lip lines, and helps define lip contours.
  • Extremely comfortable wear, and lips feel instantly smooth, soft and nourished without the need for lip balm.
  • Embossed with the iconic Elizabeth Arden Red Door design,
  • In just a few sweeps, my lips transformed from tired looking and dry to a vibrant juicy pout in just a few seconds.
  • Hides lip flakes, lip lines, dryness, uneven lip tones – this lipstick looks good even on a bad lip day!
  • Verdict: Highly recommended MUST-TRY lipstick formula!! You won’t believe the transformation until you try it for yourself. ¬†This is hands down a HG formula for me, although I do wish it contained SPF.

 

Forget Dior Serum de Rouge, you must try this one instead.

 

RRP: $46 AUD

Shade: Black Orchid

  • Read my previous review of Tom Ford Lipsticks here.
  • Black Orchid an intense wine shade that’s high maintenance, so I recommend using with a lip brush an lip primer such as Elizabeth Arden Advanced Lip Fix Cream instead of lip balm.
  • Without lip primer, I found it slippery and sank into lip lines which is common in many deep wine lipstick shades out there.

  • Verdict: Recommended for those who have minimal lip lines, or those that prefer a softer wine lipstick shade.
Attempt #1 – On Clarins Extra Firming Lip & Contour Balm.
It slipped around a lot, didn’t cover evenly & tendency to sink into lip lines.
Attempt #2 – On Elizabeth Arden Advanced Lip Fix Cream
No slip, and blended effortlessly into the lip surface.  Turns into a soft wine shade once blended.

TOM FORD Lip Color – Ginger Fawn

Brand: Tom Ford
Range: Lip Color
Shade: Ginger Fawn
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Read my previous review of Tom Ford Lipsticks here.
  • Ginger Fawn is a warm orange that’s a more wearable take on the bold orange lip trend.
  • Although Tom Ford lipsticks are already moisturising, I find that it looks most flattering when worn on primed lips to soften the creamy texture, especially if you have lip lines.

  • Verdict: Recommended for all skin tones, although the ginger hues make this an autumn pick for me.
