Now where’d I leave my lipgloss…


That’s a phrase the cute zippered case that comes with Elizabeth Arden’s new High Shine Lip Gloss Set ($19.50) might eliminate. The limited edition set of four mega-shiny mini-glosses, one of eight sets in the new Elizabeth Arden Holiday 2011 Collection (full list at the bottom of this post), is available now at Macy’s and also online.

Elizabeth Arden fans and/or gals who love pigmented, non-sticky glosses without a flavor or scent, this one’s for you. 🙂

Straight up, I love how these glosses feel. Smooth, and a little on the thick side, they’re like a nice, long kiss. I just wish the colors were a little more unique…

Candlelight reminds me of NARS Albatross, and doesn’t Shimmering Rose resemble MAC Nymphette?


As for the case? Convenient and cute, right? It even has room for a compact, a lipstick and maybe even a small travel-sized spritzer of perfume. Not bad at all. 🙂

PRICE: $19.50
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Macy’s and online
