I decided to do a lipstick review. This one is Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Ultra Lipstick in the shade Honeysuckle. This was a gift, so I have no idea how much it costs.
This lustrous, color-saturated lipstick is infused with Volulip™ and delivers brilliant, moisturizing, color-lasting comfort shine, for plumper, fuller-looking lips. Lips look fuller, more defined and feel youthfully smooth, soft and nourished. Ceramide Triple Complex helps strengthen and re-texturize skin’s appearance, holding in vital skin-plumping moisture. Lips look fuller and younger. Contours seem more defined.
Features and Benefits:
- Ultra-brilliant color, radiant shine, and lips feel moisturized for up to 20 hours.
- Infused with Volulip™, a new ultra-plumping agent so that lips appear fuller and more plumped.
- Reduces appearance of vertical lines on lips, and soothes, protects, and preserves lips.
- Plumps lips with moisture-enriched pigments.
The Ceramide Ultra Lipstick case makes a luxurious fashion statement. Embossed with a design inspired by the iconic Elizabeth Arden Red Door, this sleek column of richly- textured golden metal is a precious accessory meant to be seen and admired. As seen in: Shape.com, who says our new Ceramide Ultra Lipstick may be the fountain of youth for lips in their online feature, “30 New Beauty Products for the Girl on the Go.”
My Take on Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Ultra Lipstick in Honeysuckle:
This is a brownish kind of a lipstick with little golden shimmer. It is a very pretty colour. The kind of colour that goes well with any skin tone because its neither too dark nor too light, just the perfect kind of a colour. It does have some red undertones to it. Although it does have shimmer, it can easily be worn as a daytime colour. Its good for the ladies who go to office and all because it’s the perfect shade to be worn in a work environment.
Packaging is a black case, pretty much like the Revlon lipsticks, but this one has Elizabeth Arden written on a band around the lipstick. It was part of a combination pack and hence it has got a different packaging than the ones that I see on the internet. It closes firmly and does not open. So, its actually travel proof.
The lipstick does not feel too drying or moisturizing. It just sits comfortably on the lips. It has an average staying power like all other normal lipsticks, around 3 hours it lasts. It claims to have some plumping effect. Its not like some lip glosses that sting the lips in order for the plumping effect to come into action. It does not sting, but I have not really observed any big plumping effect, maybe just a little.
The colour does transfer onto glasses and all, but then which lipstick apart from the long-wearing ones does not. It has no particular smell which can be a positive point for many people.
You can see the brownish kind of a colour here. Its pretty easy to pull off.
The above is a picture of it in the natural light. The pigmentation is opaque. One gets good enough colour in even a single swipe.
