Hope everyone’s doing well! Whilst going through my lipsticks, I found this beloved lipstick of mine, that I had totally forgotten about. Today, I will be reviewing Fiesta by Elizabeth Arden, let’s see how it fares.
Price– $25 (prices vary from site to site)
This vibrant and long-lasting Exceptional Lipstick Fiesta 30 from Elizabeth Arden moisturizes and softens your lips while adding brilliant color. Beginning in 1910 with the opening of the Red Door Salon, Elizabeth Arden began creating products that benefited instead of masked the skin. Elizabeth Arden products provide support to your skin to keep it soft, smooth and looking young. You have the right to be beautiful, enjoy it.
My experience with Elizabeth Arden Fiesta 30 Exceptional Lipstick :
Starting from the packaging, it’s comes in a classic black case, whilst the inside is golden in color. The bottom of the tube contains the name of the lipstick. Overall, the packaging is simple yet elegant. It’s sturdy and travel-friendly.
The color ‘Fiesta’ reminds me of the fluorescent pink color we play with during Holi! However, it’s a more subtle pink. It’s bright, but not neon. I really like the colour, it adds pop to your lips which makes them stand out. This is a perfect spring/summer colour. The best part is that it doesn’t bleed. It does compliment every skin stone. It is a build-able color, and you can also pair it with different lipsticks.
The texture of the lipstick is creamy. It has a sheen to it but leaves behind a semi-matte finish after some time of application. However, you have to exfoliate your lips before wearing this as it tends to settle into fine lines if your lips are very dry. I suggest wearing a lip balm underneath. They do claim to be very moisturising, but I kind of deny this fact. I personally have extremely dry lips, so a lip balm underneath is a must. It doesn’t dry up and turn flaky. As of staying power, I does stay for 4 hrs, but leaves a soft pink stain behind. One thing I don’t really like about this lipstick is its fragrance. It has a weird smell to it. It’s not fruity or scented, but just a weird fragrance that I actually cannot describe !
Pros of Elizabeth Arden Fiesta 30 Exceptional Lipstick :
- Sturdy packaging
- Beautiful pink, which is perfect for this season
- Nice staying power
- Reduces to a semi-matte finish.
- Would suit all skin stones
Cons of Elizabeth Arden Fiesta 30 Exceptional Lipstick :
- Ones needs to exfoliate before using this lip color.
- May settle into fine lines.
- Has a weird smell.
- Not extremely moisturizing.
Do I recommend/will I buy Elizabeth Arden Fiesta 30 Exceptional Lipstick?
This is a beautiful shade for summers and spring and would look lovely on almost everyone. However, you decide for yourself if you like it or not. Personally I love this colour, but availability in India is huge issue. Also, it’s pretty expensive, but I won’t complain for its Elizabeth Arden, however I am sure you can find dupes for it at a lower price in the drugstore.
Hope you are having an amazing day!:)
