Review & Swatches: Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Ultra Lipstick in “Rouge”

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Ultra Lipstick in Rouge 01

Availability: Elizabeth Arden Online
Price: $22.50

Company’s Description

This lustrous, color-saturated lipstick, infused with Volulip delivers brilliant moisturizing color, lasting comfort and shine for a plumper, fuller looking lips. Lips look fuller, more defined … feel youthfully smooth, soft and nourished.

Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Ultra Lipsticks (voted Best Lipstick by Fitness Magazine 2011) are said to be moisturizing, long-wearing and plumping. This review looks at the color Rouge 01.

Packaging: 9.8/10

This lipstick comes in a beautiful gold tube embossed all around with Elizabeth Arden’s signature door icon. This luxurious packaging is heavier than for most other lipsticks.

Quality: 9.8/10

Rogue is a blue-based, vibrant, classic red color. The pigmentation is intense and opaque.

The formula is creamy and moisturizing, gliding easily over the skin. The color leaves a glossy finish and doesn’t settle into lip-lines. It has an average wear-time, lasting 3-4 hours if you don’t eat or drink.

I didn’t see any plumping effect, as the company claims, which is why the score for quality is not a full 10 points.

Ease of Use: 9.8/10

Because the formula is creamy and the color is strong, application is easy. There’s no tugging or skipping on the skin and no need to do multiple layers.

Price: 8.8/10

For $22.50, you get 3.5 grams of lipstick. MAC’s lipsticks cost $14.50 and contain 3 grams, so the Ceramide Ultra definitely has a higher price-point.

Final Grade

96/100

    I do love the formula for Elizabeth Arden lipsticks, they are comfortable and pigmented…though I am not such a fan of this color, I guess because I’m afraid of bright lips.
