This was my first time trying out an Elizabeth Arden product. I bought it sometime ago. Before using this lipstick, I used to think that Elizabeth Arden was a brand only for the grown ups. I mean I am an adult too but I considered this to be for mature women. And I was mistaken! There is nothing like that with this brand, just perceptions.
I tried their lipstick on a day when I was bored of trying out the same brands. I swatched a few of their lipsticks on the display and a couple of colors really stood out to me. And the Color Intrigue Effects formula felt really good on my hand. I tried out the 10 Copper Tan Shimmer shade and it looked like my kind of brown.
Back in college I used to wear a lot of brown lipsticks and this one was right up my alley. Good thing is that I did not have a similar shade in my makeup collection. I got it, luckily for a discount, and tried it the moment when I got home. It looked good and felt really amazing – lightweight, moisturizing and well-pigmented – pre-requisites for good lipsticks.
I used this until the mid of 2012 and now that it is 2 years old, I still have it even though I do not use it. I reviewed it because I think this formula – Color Intrigue Effects – is a good one and the new lipsticks are equally good. I cannot find Elizabeth Arden products in Seoul so I will have to wait to check out their products when I go back to India!
I loved Elizabeth Arden Red Door Shimmer perfume which I bought after this lipstick. I also got their face powder brush which is the softest brush I own. I plan to try out their body products too I have heard so many good things about their 8-hour creams. I may get their body lotions too!
Have you tried any thing from Elizabeth Arden makeup and beauty line?
