Cranberry Cream Lipstick

I recently received the Elizabeth Arden Cranberry Cream Lipstick from a swap on beautyheaven.com.au

When I first saw it, I was intimidated by its dark red shade and to be honest, I'd never worn red lips before. But this shade is gorgeous! It actually goes on like a deep raspberry pink colour that's very wearable. It's very creamy and gives a great colour payoff. I find that it's easiest and most precise to apply with a lip brush.



Left: One swipe
Right: 3-4 swipes

Bare lips

One *light* swipe of lipstick

Two swipes

Two swipes of lipstick
Outside lighting (two swipes)


This started my love affair with bright lipsticks and I'm dying for the MAC Marilyn Monroe collection to be released. There's a nice pinkish-red lipstick in that collection :)
