Here is the newly packaged Elizabeth Arden Luminous Lip Gloss from the Beautiful Color range. I have two shades, a nude called Cameo 06 and a pink called Precious Petal 11.
It is meant to provide lips with long-wearing, vibrant colour and brilliant shine. The ingredients include mango and shea butters to condition and help lock in moisture, and Maxi-Lip to plump the appearance of lips. This product is available in 6 shades.

Keeping with the new color scheme, the lipgloss features gold and silver accents along with the red door emblem. The new packaging is more square than before. It has a generously sized mirror on the side of the tube which will prove useful for both gloss and lipstick application.
Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss has a silky smooth texture and imparts rich color and lustrous shine. Infused with conditioning and hydrating ingredients, this non-sticky gloss soothes and comforts lips like a balm. Maxi-lip™ helps support natural collagen for plumper, fuller looking lips. it has a soft tip “paddle” applicator deposits the perfect amount of gloss, and a built-in mirror is perfect for on-the-go application.
- Mango Butter to help protect, condition and soothe lips and Shea Butter to-lock-in moisture.
- Maxi-Lip™– helps support natural collagen for firmer, smoother and more defined looking lips.
- Super Sterol Ester — softens and moisturizes lips.
Applications and uses
Rebecca’s Tip: “For fuller looking lips, apply gloss using the contouring applicator to the center of the lips, focusing on the Cupid’s Bow. A convenient, built-in mirror gives you perfect results anytime, anywhere.”
This gloss has a somewhat large and paddle shaped dough foot applicator. It makes application quick and easy; swipe each lip once and be done. Additionally, you can turn it on its sharper edge to apply gloss with more precision in smaller places such as the cupid’s bow.
The lip glosses are the last two shades on the right.

The visibility of the sparkles varies depending on which shade you pick up. For instance the shade Precious Petal 11 has more apparent sparkles. I noticed no staining with this gloss but the Precious Petal shade left slight sparkles on the lips after fading away.
As for pigmentation, Precious Petal 11 was more apparent on the lips, partly because of the gold flex. I was only able to test out two fair shades and therefore I wouldn’t necessarily call them vibrant. However, they are certainly wearable on their own and would look nice layered over lipstick as well.
The texture of this gloss is on the thicker side so if you over apply it, it will feel sticky. They apply smoothly and do not appear streaky.
Wear time depends on whether you eat or not, it’s not entirely long lasting but due to the thickness. It doesn’t fade as quickly as a thin gloss. Also, this is not a gritty gloss – I didn’t feel the sparkles on my lips.
It doesn’t tingle like other glosses advertised as having lip plumping properties. On that note, I didn’t actually notice having fuller lips so much as a nude gloss has a tendency of making lips appear fuller.
The scent is a pleasant vanilla which fades after wear.
Bottom line, if you are looking for a shiny and wearable gloss that keeps the lips feeling hydrated, then here you have it.
