Askmewhats Reviews: Elizabeth Arden High Shine Lip Gloss


Happy weekend dearies!!!

Another product review for the lips!!! I've had this early this year and has been using this on days I am too lazy to do my eye makeup. Yes dearests!!! It's a red colored lip product!!!

Introducing....
Elizabeth Arden's High Shine Lip Gloss
in Raspberry Glace

I've used this lip gloss in some looks from the past :)
And its time to review the product itself!




Elizabeth Arden High Shine Lips says ----

Glides over lipstick for brilliant shine or smoothes on alone for glamorous, glossy lips.

.22 Fl. oz. / 6.5 ml.


Askmewhats says ---

Pros
  • dermatologist tested
  • non-sticky
  • very pigmented
  • very nice and simple packaging
  • due to its color is quite deep, the gloss stays approximately half day before reapplying
  • non drying
Cons
  • quite pricey (especially if you don't want to spend more than $10.00 on makeup)
Overall

If you plan to wear red but is afraid to start! You can always start with a Red-colored lipgloss! Gracie knew how scared I am to wear red lipstick so she gifted me this to start off and be feisty! LOL

I like that this isn't too sticky and easy to apply! It does not bleed on my dry lips and it stays a bit longer as compared to other glosses.

Tips
  • wear alone for simpler lip color
  • wear on top of lipstick for a brighter and bolder color and shine
  • if you are applying lip balm, make sure to apply lip balm several minutes before you apply this gloss to prevent the gloss from sliding and prolong the gloss on lips
  • OC-ness alert, wipe this with a paper towel after every usage to prevent this gloss from going bad!
  • if you are a makeup artist, use a cotton bud or disposable wand to apply this onothers
Will I repurchase?

I'd love to! :) Will check at Elizabeth Arden Counters at Rustan's.

Where can you purchase and how much?

I've never bought from the sites stated below, I've just done research, I got this as a gift from dear friend Gracie! Thanks sis!

On Elizabeth Arden US website for $15.00 (approx Php720.00)
At Beauty Counter site for $10.00 (approx Php480.00)

Here's to show
how Raspberry Glace looks

Coming from someone who's scared to wear red!
Do give a gloss a try!
You'll be surprised how it brightens the overall look
without too much make up on :D

Keep smilin'
Stay Happy!
