You may have seen from my Boxing Day sales haul that I brought the Elizabeth Arden Colourful Kisses Lipstick Set, which is a beautiful lipstick set with four lovely 3.5g lipsticks in shades Peony, Violetini, Coral Fizz and Cherry Bomb.
I brought this lipstick set from Boots (UK store) and thought it was great value for money and the shades are colours that I would use regularly all throughout the year for different occasions.
The packaging is simple but beautiful, I love the gold; it’s very sleek and elegant.
For a lipstick set, these are great colours with the bold bright Cherry Bomb to the more natural and neutral Peony. With sets like this, I usually find there’s at least one product or shade that I’m not too keen on, but with this set all 4 colours are beautiful and wearable.
The formula has a good pigment and a lovely creamy and moisturising texture.
I’ve worn Cherry Bomb a couple of times recently and I really like the creamy texture – it doesn’t dry on the lips at all which is perfect as I can’t stand dry lips! It also doesn’t have that horrible sticky residue that some lip products do making it a nice and easy to wear lipstick.
The colour however doesn’t stay on for hours and hours and does require touch ups – which I don’t mind too much, but it’s worth noting as I’d only wear it in situations where reapplying is possible but it might not be so good for a wedding or occasions where you can’t get away to sort your lippie out! On a regular evening out where you can quickly nip to the ladies it’s fine!
4 very beautiful shades – these lipsticks are going to be used a lot!
Until next time, stay awesome!
