Hey gorgeous gals,
I am declaring the summers open with this pretty pretty coral shade from Elizabeth Arden. This was my first Elizabeth Arden lipstick and I have IMBB to thank for this. I got it in their Anniversary Giveaway along with some other lovely shades which I will review shortly.

The lipstick comes in a beautiful, elegant gold metal casing. The case has Elizabeth Arden etched in the middle, very classy. It’s packaged in a cardboard box which is sticker sealed from top.
My Experience with Elizabeth Arden Coral Vibrations Ceramide Ultra Lipstick:
Color: The shade “Coral Vibrations” is a pinky peachy coral – truly vibrant. It really brightens up the face. It screams summer and is fairly neonish, and would look more so on darker skin tones. For NC42 and above, I would advise to try the shade before buying. There is a nice creamy shine which makes the lips appear fuller.
Texture: The texture is creamy. There was no feathering or bleeding of the colour and it was neither hydrating nor drying, but still, it was comfortable to wear. You do need prepped lips for this one because the level of pigmentation along with the texture, make the colour seep into the fine lines/dry patches. You cannot really make out from afar but real up close, it’s not very pretty.
Pigmentation: Decent pigmentation, about 70% color deposit in one swipe. You do have to go over a couple of times to ensure full coverage and to get the shade in the tube.
Lasting Power: It gave me about 4 hours of wear time and left a very soft tint on my lips. Overall, decent but nothing spectacular.
To sum this up for you:
Pros of Elizabeth Arden Coral Vibrations Ceramide Ultra Lipstick:
- Beautiful shade – summery, bright coral!
- Easy to apply from the tube.
- Color lasts for 4 hours plus.
- Not drying but not hydrating either.
- No feathering or bleeding despite the bright color.
- Hides lip pigmentation well.
- Luxe and classy feel to the tube and case!
Cons of Elizabeth Arden Coral Vibrations Ceramide Ultra Lipstick:
- Ease of availability across India.
- It needs prepped lips, else will seep into the fine lines and cling to dry patches.
I love the shade and if you are someone who likes bright and happy colours, you would love this too. I can’t thank IMBB enough for such a lovely gift, I am enjoying this shade and really looking forward to sporting it more often once the sun starts shining brightly!
