Today I’d like to share with you some newly launched lipsticks from Elizabeth Arden, the Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Matte Shades;

What They Say:
Matte Meets Moisture. Lush, luxurious colour that lasts for 12 hours – now in a velvety matte finish. Creamy, conditioning lipstick glides on with silky smooth comfort and saturates lips with bold, intense colour. Available in 6 Shades.

RRP: $35 – Available from Elizabeth Arden at Myer, David Jones and Select Pharmacies

What I Say:
As soon as I received these lipsticks, I was in love. The actual packaging is just stunning as the lipsticks come in a sleek gold version of the iconic Elizabeth Arden Red Door design and logo. Just so luxurious that it is a shame to hide the lipstick away in your handbag!
The new range of matte lipsticks is available in 6 beautiful and very wearable shades, and I got to try the shades Rose Petal and Nude.
  • Rose Petal (47) - A soft mauve-pink is the perfect medium shade that is perfect for everyday wear, and would suit most skin tones.  
  • Nude (43) - A soft neutral shade. Normally nude shades look horrible on me, but this shade has just the right amount of shade and warmth to just right.
And needless to say that the lipsticks feel so incredibly beautiful on the lips too. They’ve been made using ingredients such as of Mango,Shea and Murumuru butters to infuse lips with nourishing, conditioning and soothing oils, and Argan Oil and Vitamin E to provide antioxidant protection. And as well as promise to boost the lips with a 60% increase in moisturisation, they also promise fuller, healthier and plumper lips! Love a good multi-tasking product that cares for the skin as you wear it.
L-R: Nude and Rose Petal
The lipsticks are very pigmented, and just a quick swipe gives your lips an intense matte look. And while matte lipsticks often feel and look drying on the lips, this is far from the case with these new lipsticks as they really do feel light, soft and moisturising on the lips.
And as the lipsticks are so highly pigmented, they also last very well on the lips. Elizabeth Arden does claim they last 12 hours due to a fade-resist complex keeps, and while I didn’t quite get them to last that long, I did manage to get 8+ hours wear, which personally I think is pretty good too, especially seeing it only just started wearing off after a meal, and until then, still looking freshly applied and without any feathering or bleeding. And when they do fade, they do so evenly to a nice stain, without any blotchiness.
I’m not usually a fan of matte lipsticks as the often both feel and look drying on the lips but these Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick continue to feel and look nice on the lips throughout the day, no dryness or cracking in sight.
Overall this is really an amazing new range of lipsticks, no doubt the most comfortable matte lipstick that I’ve ever tried. And while, as a beauty blogger, I don’t deny having quite a large collection of lipsticks, these no doubt are amongst my absolute favourite ones. Well done Elizabeth Arden.
