Product Purchased by IMBB
There are people who like to dish out the best on the first go, but I am different in this matter. I like to save the best for the last! No points for guessing, here is the last one from the 4 lip liners by Elizabeth Arden purchased by IMBB, in a gorgeous red color. These days I find every other girl sporting a bright, red pout and I find it fabulous. There was a time when we used to save the reds for special occasions, but no more of that rule. I, personally, stayed away from proper reds, but ever since I got Ruby Woo, it has become one of my favorites. No wonder, it is the best selling shade in MAC. Okay, coming back to the review, here is the gem of the lot, Red Door Red, 01.
Price: Rs 1200/- for 0.35gm
My Experience with Elizabeth Arden #01 Red Door Red Color Precision Glide Lip Liner:
As I have already said quite a few times, these lip liners have fabulous luxurious packaging and they exude glam in a way. For detailed information on the packaging please refer to the Ballet Blush review.
The texture of the lip liner is very smooth but not crumbly soft. On swatching, the liner feels super smooth on the hand, but on the lips, they are a slightly drying. I do not mind this texture in a lip liner, as lip liners are meant to hold on the lip color, if they move or slip themselves, there is hardly any point in applying them. One word of advice (repeating over and over again) would be to not smudge the lips together as we always tend to do. That would make the application patchy and take away the beauty of the shade.
The shade is a pure red with no warm or cool undertones to it. This is a pro when it comes to a lip liner as you can pair it with almost all the reds in your stash. One stroke covers all the pigmentation and gives a smooth even coverage to your lips. You can wear this lip liner alone but make sure you prep your lips beforehand. It feels so lightweight that you might even forget you have a color on your lips. I find this lightweight and quite comfortable for the summers. As already said before, there is a mild cosmetic smell to the product which vanishes on application, so it is not at all bothersome.
Overall the Red Door Red shade is the best from the lot and if you are looking for a high end red lip liner definitely check this out. The shade, texture, pigmentation is just perfect with this lip liner. Also I believe that application of a red lipstick requires a lot of precision, so the sharpener provided would give you the perfect tip to draw the Cupid ’s bow.
Pros of Elizabeth Arden #01 Red Door Red Color Precision Glide Lip Liner:
• Luxurious packaging.
• Nice shade.
• Smooth application.
• Does not feather (if not smudged).
• Comes with a smudger and a sharpener.
Cons of Elizabeth Arden #01 Red Door Red Color Precision Glide Lip Liner:
• Uses up fast (if you apply to cover pigmented lips).
IMBB Rating: 4.8/5
