Elizabeth Arden? The first thing that comes into mind is my favorite everyday perfume which is the Elizabeth Arden Green Tea. I think I must’ve emptied 2 or 3 bottles of that in the past year. But just a couple of months ago my ultra cool lola introduced me to more products from the brand. She gave me this small Elizabeth Arden GWP loot which contained 3 or 4 skincare products and a deluxe sample mascara. I haven’t tried the skincare prods yet for I am contemplating whether to send them to my cousin who recently migrated to Australia for her degree or use it myself. I heard she’s been getting a hard time adjusting to the climate there and it’s taking a toll on her skin. Boohoo! Anyway, let’s get back to the quick mascara review. πŸ™‚
Product Description:
Our first-ever mascara with ceramide triple complex (Ceramides 1, 3 & 6) plus vitamins to help reinforce and restore lashes’ natural protective barrier. Protein-based complex Keravis helps fortify, lengthen, define & revitalize lashes. Won’t smudge, flake or clump.
The original packaging comes in a long, all-gold tube but this deluxe sample came in a black and gold tube that’s only 3 inches tall. It is said to contain Ceramide Complex that helps lengthen the lashes naturally with continuous use but given how small my tube is, I didn’t really get to see any real change. Still, I love how brands in the US give out deluxe samples such as this one. Why can’t we have this here? The only brands that I know that does this GWP thing here are Etude House and Clinique.
This Ceramide Mascara is more on the watery side, consistency-wise. It’s very light and runny.. a bit too runny for me actually – it can easily get messy when I blink after application but at least it doesn’t clump up when layered on. The bristles on the mascara wand have noticeably large gaps between them which is probably why it is difficult to build up the length. However, for reasons I can’t explain, it makes it incredibly easier to apply mascara on the lower lashes. πŸ™‚ Let’s see if the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lash Extending Treatment Mascara is any good, shall we?

As photographed above, you’d see that it doesn’t have any drastic lengthening or volumizing effect on my lashes. It darkened my lashes and gave it more intensity and depth but nothing like my other mascaras. It has more of a natural look – darker, slightly longer and without a single clump in sight – something teens would appreciate. It doesn’t flake but unfortunately, this isn’t water-proof. It smudges easily even without getting into contact with water or sweat. With all honesty, I can say that I’m not thoroughly impressed by the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lash Extending Treatment Mascara – I still love their Green Tea perfume, though. πŸ™‚
