I've never been a wearer of lipstick. I've tried but never really liked the feel of it. My mother on the other hand has always worn a pillar box red Lancome one. I happened to see a perfect red Elizabeth Arden Exceptional lipstick (Baroque Red) on an offer in House of Fraser and so bought her one for Christmas. And she loved it. Then when I was home visiting I decided to slick a bit on to see what it was like. And I loved it so much that now I have my own.
It, like other lipsticks comes in a 4g tube. The container is quite chic - black and a little bit of gold. It has a nice sounding 'click' when you snap it closed. The wonder of this lipstick lies in its consistency. I've bought MAC ones before, and have had to put balm on my lips before using them as they seem to dry my lips out. But this is the most sumptuously rich lipstick; it's so moisturised that it smooths on so beautifully yet stays in place for an absolute age. The colour is so rich and deep - it really glistens without being shiny. It also is scented nicely, but not too strong. The Baroque Red is a perfect red - a vintage colour that is neither too dark nor too light. I think it would suit most people who can carry a bold colour. I can't really see how a lipstick could get any better. This is faultless.
Being a sucker for advertising I decided upon buying the Elizabeth Arden Lipstick in Amber as it had been especially created for Amber Valetta Elizabeth Arden's face. it's a shimmery bronze colour and is great if you are a brunnette like me as it suits our colouring!! I am a qualified beautician and provide makeup for weddings etc. and this was a colour chosen by the bride to be's mum - she was in her 50's and it also suited her so is a wear by everyone shade. The holders are very chic in black and gold and although this is perhaps not a range you would look at (like me you tend towards the Chanel and Clinique ranges) they are definately worth a look as the colours wear well and are not over perfumed.
