Elizabeth Arden offers two delectable shades for fall in Color Intrigue Effects Lipstick Cayenne Pearl and Cranberry Cream ($19.50). I like Cayenne Pearl for a great reddish coral color — almost a brick-brown red, but not at all in-your-face. Cranberry Cream is a raspberryish hue, not too intense, which makes it a nice every day shade for those looking for something less natural, more pigmented–but not over the top.

The Color Intrigue Effects Lipstick line has very subtle sheen and shimmer. Both shades I tried were well pigmented and creamy, both characteristics I look for in a good lipstick! It wore well throughout the day, and it faded after a few hours (as to be expected when worn alone and eating!), but I didn’t get left with a ring around my lips, thankfully!
See skin swatches and lip swatches!

    I bought the Cayenne Pearl in the summer and now fall is here I wear it regularly, a great color for this time of year.

    I was introduced to Elizabeth Arden’s lipsticks recently and was amazed with the staying power they have!! The first time I tried it at a makeover, I thougth the MA used some special techniques tod extend the staying power but I found out, she had simply applied the lipstick and that was it. I had never had such good staying power on my lips before. It’s amazing! I wish there are more color selections though.
