Elizabeth Arden have recently launched their Liquid Assets Colour Collection for Autumn which consists of three different products in varying shades. The Elizabeth Arden Liquid Assets Colour Collection is designed to give high impact colour in innovative liquid textures and I couldn’t wait to try the products out as it’s been years since I’ve tried any Elizabeth Arden makeup products and I was so impressed with their Prevage Anti-Aging Foundation. Just like all of the Elizabeth Arden makeup line, the Liquid Assets Collection is beautifully packaged with the products being contained with glossy black cardboard boxes with an artistic pattern to reflect the product inside and the products themselves are a shiny black with gold accents.
Elizabeth Arden Liquid Assets Beautiful Color Bold Liquid Lipstick – Daring Beige £18
Whenever I think of a liquid lipstick these days, I automatically think of matte lips due to the whole matte lip craze which I for one are not a fan of but I know I’m in the minority. The Bold Liquid Lipsticks claim to have creamy, high impact lip colour which combines the coverage and intensity of a lipstick with the finish of a gloss.
The Liquid Lipstick is packaged within a black plastic tube with a clear window to see which colour is inside, and the lid removes to reveal a flocked, angled tip applicator which the lipstick penetrates through by sliding the lever upwards. I haven’t seen a makeup product with a slider like this but it’s so much more convenient and useful than the typical twist bases that you have to click a thousand times, as each single slide of the lever pushes the perfect amount of product onto the applicator thus reducing any unnecessary wastage.
The Liquid Lipstick formula contains rich emollients to leave the lips feeling luxuriously moisturised and comfortable with longlasting colour which doesn’t feather or bleed. There are eight different shades available and I have the Daring Beige shade which is the lightest in the shade range, but there are pinks, reds and berry tones so there’ll be a shade for everyone.
I couldn’t be more happy with Daring Beige as I love a nude lip, especially a nude gloss and Daring Beige is my idea of the perfect nude as it’s a nice neutral shade which can be worn sheerly or can be built up for a more intense finish.
Elizabeth Arden Liquid Assets Beautiful Color Bold Illuminating Liquid Highlighter – Champagne £26
Described as a weightless, golden highlighter with comfortable liquid texture that delivers a translucent, radiant veil onto skin; perfect for highlighting high points on the face, such as cheekbones and brow bones. Infused with light-reflecting mineral pearls that create a multi-dimensional effect on skin, the illuminating highlighter features a mesh touch delivery system that dispenses the perfect amount of product every time; on application, it blends seamlessly into any makeup (without disturbing what’s been applied underneath) to create a beautifully luminous glow.
I was most intrigued by this highlighter as I’ve never tried an highlighter packaged in this format; with a plastic jar and a piece of mesh which the liquid highlighter seeps through. I’ve seen the likes of Stila use this format for blushes and eyeliner but never for highlighter. The texture of the highlighter is quite ‘wet’ almost like a gel and I’ve found that it’s best applied with a duo-fibre brush, and the Champagne shade is a very pretty light gold which looks quite intense in the pot but it’s a lot more subtle/wearable on the skin and you only need a tiny amount per application.
Elizabeth Arden Liquid Assets Beautiful Color Bold Defining Liquid Eye Liner – Dark Valentine £18
The Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Bold Defining Liquid Eyeliner is a waterproof liquid eyeliner which promises to deliver high impact colour with 24 hour wear. The liner has a buildable, quick-drying formula which is smudge-proof and sweat-resistant to ensure long-lasting perfection. There are two shades available; Dark Valentine and Gilded Brown, and I have the Dark Valentine shade which is a rich and intense black which dries down to a satin finish which reflects the Liquid Assets theme nicely.
The first time I tried the liner I was a little disappointed as it was quite runny and lacking pigment but the tube needs to be shaken vigorously before use as it contains a ball bearing to mix the fluid, and I don’t think my swatches give a fair representation of how intensely pigmented the liner is once it has been shaken well. The applicator of the liner is an amazingly precise, flexible tip which I think is made from felt tip fibre rather than a brush and you can create a super thin line by pressing lightly across the skin, or create a bolder line with a little more pressure.
I’d love to know if you’re tempted by anything within the Elizabeth Arden Liquid Assets Collection?
