Elizabeth Arden has dropped the prettiest collection of lip colours just in time for summer. Say hello to Gelato Crush, a treat for girls who are always on the go.

Plush Up Lip Gelato


I adore these lipsticks. They have a super silky, balmy texture that glides over your lips, leaving a slightly sheer but oh-so-pretty pop of colour. It feel super comfortable and soft, with a slightly cooling feel to it.

The collection consists of 10 shades, and I chose the three below. Natural Blush is a super pretty nude shade and brilliant to add just a hint of colour. Strawberry Sorbet is a very pretty, warm pink that’s going to be perfect for summer. Poppy Pout is a warm red shade that is ideal for those hot nights out.

The colours are slightly sheer, so if you want to intensify the colour, you can prep your lips with one of their liners, which will give you a solid shade. Personally I like the lipsticks on their own for the summer months – it’s playful and easy to wear.

The lipsticks aren’t just pretty, but also care for your pout with a bunch of potent ingredients. Peptides, ceramides and Shea Butter help to smooth and condition, while Vitamin A and E protect and nourish. They’ve also added cool Gellified Film Formers that create a cushion-like texture while locking in moisture and colour.

Slide the Elizabeth Arden label down to pop the lipstick out of the tube (this took me a while to figure out). Then twist it out.

The lipliners are great if you want to intensify the colour and lengthen the wear, while creating a more precise, neat application. They are dual-ended, with a silicone tip at the back that you can use to fill and blend the colour.

These have also been formulated with Peptides for a plump appearance, and the Gellified Film Formers to give you that smooth glide-on application and long-wear.

The lipliners are available in 5 shades: Kiss Me Coral, Vintage Pink, Fuschia Burst, Fire Red and Raisen.
