Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss in Coral Kiss Swatches and Review

Elizabeth Arden is definitely a luxury brand in my book.  They have wonderful skincare (like their Ceramide line and their award-winning Eight Hour Skin Protectant), and recently has been updating their color collection.  I reviewed a few of the eyeshadows here, and I have their new Luminous Lipgloss in Coral Kiss to show you today.

Elizabeth Arden says:  Multidimensional, moisture rich formula provides lips with long-wearing, vibrant color and brilliant shine. Infused with mango and shea butters to condition and help lock in moisture, and Maxi-Lip™ to plump the appearance of lips. 

Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss in Coral Kiss is a shimmery juicy peachy coral. The shimmer is actually very very fine, subtle gold glitter that simply makes the gloss look more shiny. It gives quite a lot of color for a gloss, almost like a liquid lipstick, which I really like since I don't usually bother layering a lipstick with a gloss.

Here you can see the glitter a little better (this is after I wiped off the color a little). 

The formula is very smooth, very shiny, and feels quite moisturizing.  It has a vanilla-y scent that makes me crave cookies (the scent fades after a few minutes).  It is not at all sticky, and wears for about 2-3 hours.

The packaging is rather beautiful.  It feels quite lightweight considering how chunky the gloss tube is. It has a gold cap with the signature red door emblem on it, and it has a mirror on one side of the gloss tube for application on the go.  Genius!

The applicator is a flat felt-tip wand that allows for a decent amount of gloss being deposited on the lips, so you don't have to keep dipping the wand in the tube to get out more gloss.

I think Coral Kiss is kind of a neutral coral, so it will look appropriate year round with lots of different kinds of eye and cheek colors.

This gloss is so gorgeous!  It comes in 14 shades and is $18.00 (USD).
