Summer Lipsticks from Elizabeth Arden

I’ve become freakin’ obsessed with coral this summer. It’s a flattering color when I’m fair and stays that way once I get a tan, so it’s a perfect shade for the warmer months of the year AND year round. I have a big coral post coming up soon, but in the meantime I wanted to introduce you to two lippies I’ve been loving lately from Elizabeth Arden. They’re slightly different from one another but both are gorgeous shades of coral that I think you’ll love!

Elizabeth Arden Summer Escape Beautiful Color Gloss Stick in Coral Reef is a lipgloss crayon. I’m pretty much obsessed with lip crayons and I can always find an excuse to add one to my collection. This one is soft and creamy and almost a bit waxy. In several swipes you can build the color up to more of a medium coverage but it goes on pretty sheer at first. It lasts a couple hours on me if I’m not eating or drinking.

This is a very soft and smooth formula and my lips felt SO good during and after wearing this. This lipstick has Volulip technology, which is meant to seal in moisture to give the lips a fuller, more sumptuous appearance and also to firm lips. I definitely thought this wore well and looked great on and after several hours it was still going strong. It left behind a nice stain but didn’t fully disappear even after eating and drinking. I also have to mention I love the luxurious tube it comes in- so pretty!

    I’m with you – I have been lusting after coral this year – nail polish, lippies, even blush and eyeshadows! I just picked up a red-orange coral like Mandarin from Hope Girl through that Korean store Memeshop. Like you, I can’t stop picking up chubby lip crayons, either… it’s an addiction!
