Yesterday, I reviewed a lipstick from a new line inspired by Elizabeth Arden’s iconic Red Door Spa on the Fifth Avenue, which was founded in 1910; (coincidentally, the lipstick I reviewed yesterday has the same name). I was extremely pleased with my purchase; hence I went on to buy another lipstick from the same range. Today, I will be reviewing another shade of this range named “Pink Punch”.

My Experience with Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick: 30 Pink Punch
I will break the suspense here itself. This lipstick is fabulous; and I love this one just as much as I am in love with Red Door Red Lipstick.The lipstick comes in the same Gold and Silver packaging, having the Red Door emblem on it. The bullet is encased in a corrugated golden metallic case, which opens and closes with a click. Hence, it is extremely travel friendly. The shade number and name is written on a sticker, at the base of the lipstick and that is the only differentiating point between the different lipsticks of this range.
The bullet also has the door emblem engraved in it; which makes it look very classy. The bullet has a pleasant, fruity fragrance; which does not stay on for much time. This one is a beautiful mid-tone pink lipstick, which is cream based. It gives a gorgeous and vibrant look to your lips and brightens up the entire face.
However, in spite of being a matte finish, it is extremely moisturising on the lips, and has many beneficial ingredients which condition the lips. The color pay-off is excellent. It is extremely pigmented, and one swipe of the lipstick gives a completely opaque finish, even on pigmented lips. This stays on for 6-8 hours easily, with meals in between, and leaves behind a uniform and pretty pinkish stain. Even after it fades off, it never ever leaves the lips dry. The lipstick does not bleed at all.
The lipstick glides beautifully on the lips, and is quite forgiving as far as dry patches and fine lines are concerned. It becomes completely opaque with just one swipe of the lipstick; even on pigmented lips. The shade gives starts off with a glossy look; which with time settles down into a creamy, matte finish. Once set, it is almost transfer resistant….which is actually a surprise considering it is such a moisturising lipstick.
