My take on the EA Beautiful Color Moisturizing lipstick ‘Beauty’:
Just walking past the EA counter a couple of weeks back along with my Besties, we happened to swatch few of the lipsticks available at the counter. A pleasing and helpful SA added to our pleasure in checking the range of shades available. And yes, quite instantly I fell for this color but took quite some time and little persuasion to finally grab my first ever Elizabeth Arden lipstick :P. I was ecstatic :D.
This is the latest line of lipsticks offered by the brand and there are a total of 38 shades, in the range from cream to shimmery, to choose from. The line offers pigmented, moisturizing lip colors with great staying power.
Packaging: The lipstick has a class apart golden packaging. I have never seen a more beautiful packaging in a lipstick. It looks gorgeous, chic and uber stylish. The golden metallic pack is a little heavy and the lipstick bullet resides firmly inside. The bullet is also embossed with the company’s red-door icon.
Shade: ‘Beauty’ is a rusty-mauve shade. The color shows up more mauve-ish on pigmented lips while on my lips the rusty color is more prominent. The shade definitely is going to look great on all skin tones as well as on all age groups. I would call it a flattering, easily wearable color that would look good both for a day and night time look.
Texture: EA ‘Beauty’ features a creamy texture that glides on smoothly. It creates a fuller, softer, smoother & dewier pout. The shade is highly pigmeted and a single swipe is all that is needed to cover the lips with the beautiful shade.
It leaves a glossy creamy finish on the lips. I don’t find a need to apply a gloss on top. The formula is definitely moisturizing and my dry lips love it. The shade won’t bleed or feather. The brand boasts a waterproof, smudge-proof formula and I find it true to a great extent. It doesn’t transfer much.
Longevity: The brand claims a 12-hour stay which isn’t true in case on this shade. I can see the color on my lips for 5 hours at a stretch with a full meal in between. It easily survives light snacks and drinks and after a full meal, although the glossy side of the color fades, still the color can easily be seen on the lips.
- Gorgeous and classy packaging.
- Flattering shade
- Easy to wear color that would suit all age groups.
- Highly pigmented.
- Glossy finish eliminates the need of an extra gloss.
- Good staying power.
- Moisturizing texture.
- Creates a softer and dewier pout.
- Shade fades away evenly.
- Definitely pricy.
Final Word:Get Elizabeth Arden ‘Beauty’ and enjoy a beautiful color, great texture and high quality lipstick. The brand is a luxury brand and so is this lipstick. Apart from the price, I don’t find any flaw in this lipstick. 😉
