What's better on a hot summer day than indulging in ice cream? Indulging in makeup and ice cream! I joined the Elizabeth Arden team at Cool Mess NYC to celebrate the launch of their new Gelato Crush Color Collection, which included lipsticks, lip liners and cheek tints with creamy gel formulas. This new collection will be available in department stores nationwide and on ElizabethArden.com at the beginning of July 2017. In the meantime, check out a preview of the launch below!
Plump Up Lip Liner, $21
Definitely the rockstar of the group, these super pigmented and plumping lip liners are great for layering or wearing alone. The smooth and creamy formula shapes and defines lips while locking in color for long-wear. Seriously, this liner stays on so well! The colors are gorgeous, and available in 10 different shades. Swatched below are 5 of the shades:
(left to right): Nude, Kiss of Coral, Pink Affair, Fuchsia Burst, Fire Red
Plush Up Lip Gelato, $26
These light-weight lip gelatos are perfect for grab-and-go summer beauty. The formula instantly cools and plumps lips, and feels absolutely amazing on! The pigment isn't too intense so for you ladies that love a bold color, this probably isn't for you. I like to refer it as a step above a tinted lip balm. These are great for the beach and hot days when you need a cooling and moisturizing lip product with a hint of sparkle. The Plush Up Lip Gelatos are available in 22 colors, ranging from nude, pink, and berry shades.

Cool Glow Cheek Tint, $26
Cooling upon contact, this water-based gel cheek tint also doubles as a cheek stain, ensuring that its not budging on those hot summer days. These tints offer a natural blush of color and have a natural, luminous finish. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, it also instantly smoothes and hydrates cheeks. There are four different shades to chose from: Coral Daze, Pink Perfection, Nectar, and Berry Rush. While these stains do blend pretty well into makeup, be careful when applying over powders, since it may rub off a bit.
