Lip Treat: Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Moisturising Lipstick in Red Door Red

Morning! It’s a cool, rainy morning over here and I’m already feeling excited because it’s almost the weekend. Can you smell it approaching already? 🙂

I’m in a cheery mood today and here’s my lipstick pick for this Thursday morning. 


Name: Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Moisturising Lipstick in shade 02 Red Door Red

Colour: A dark red

Texture, scent and finish: Goes on smoothly like a lip balm, highly moistursing and pigmented, smells yummy because it contains Shea Butter.

Lasting Power: I love this lipstick because it stays on your lips for a long time without drying it out! It’s not completely transferproof, but it stays on your lips for at least the next 4-5 hours 🙂 It works for me and that has to count for something because I drink lots of water at work each day!

Has anyone tried lipsticks from Elizabeth Arden? I’d love to hear what are some of your favourites 🙂

Lip Treat: Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Watermelon

Hola, here’s my lip colour for the week! Introducing the Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Watermelon!




Colour: A coral shade, similar to fruit punch and does indeed bear resemblance to watermelon juice, like its namesake.

Texture: Smooth, like a tinted lip balm. Goes on a bit sheer, and is moisturising. I apply two layers.

Scent: A peppermint scent that fades off quickly once you apply it.

Packaging: Cardboard tube with floral prints. Pretty!

Wear time: As this is a sheer lipstick, you would need to reapply after meals and after you drink from a mug. Doesn’t affect me too much because I tend to drink water through a straw now during the day.

Where: Purchased from Sephora, at SGD $26.

Pros: I like the fresh colour and balm-like sheer texture. It makes for easy wearing on casual days!

Cons:

– It has a peppermint scent, but the scent goes away once you apply it.

– It is not long-lasting, because of its sheer texture.

Verdict: I enjoy using this lipstick because I love the fresh colour and the light texture. It is not long-wearing, but I still like it nonetheless!

Repurchase: Yes.

Note: All items are purchased by me, unless stated otherwise.

Introducing Tarte’s LipSurgence, in the shade named Escape.

Colour: A rose-pink shimmer, subtle and sheer tint. This can be layered to build colour.
Texture: Glides on smoothly, has hydrating oils to nourish lips. It feels like you’re wearing coloured lip balm. But it can feel a little oily if you apply more than one layer.
Scent: A peppermint scent.
Packaging: A twist stick lip tint. You twist the bottom part.
Wear time: The colour wouldn’t last for a long time, especially if you drink from your mug. But the hydrating oils still remained on my lips after I drank some water.
Where: Purchase it at Sephora
Repurchase?: I don’t recall the price, but this is quite a pricey lip tint to me. This wouldn’t be a priority repurchase for me.

Note: All items are paid for by myself. No items in my blog are sponsored, unless stated otherwise.

Merry Christmas!
Love, Neri.
