Elizabeth Arden continues the beautiful launch run with their Gelato Crush Colour Collection.
The collection is all about the lips; and comprises 10 lip colours and 5 liners.
The lip colours are called Plush Up Lip Gelatos (R295 each), and contain the most ridiculous number of hydrating ingredients (7, to be exact). Obviously they do more than hydrate, but it’s the biggest draw card of the collection.
The formula is super-lightweight and comfortable, while being decently longwearing considering the hydration factor. The colour payoff is sheer, but delivers enough for the colour to show (so not like a balm). The shades range from soft nudes through pinks and reds and deep cherries.
The Plump Up Lip Liners (R225 each) are some of the best I’ve ever tried. While the Lip Gelatos have to be topped up throughout the day, these literally stay put until you remove them. I tested the Fire Red shade through breakfast, two cups of coffee AND lunch before I noticed any fading, and even then, it lasted pretty well until I took it off that night. It comes in Kiss Of Coral, Vintage Pink, Fuschia Burst, Fire Red, and Raisin.
The entire range is available at Elizabeth Arden counters at selected department stores now.
