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!

M.A.C has always used minerals in its make-up products but the introduction of Mineralize called for the development of special formulations and innovative techniques, said Nick Gavrelis, the company’s vice president director of global product development.

“These new methods have allowed us to create baked, loose and fluid MIneralize products.

“The formulas in the baked products (Mineralize Skinfinish, Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, Mineralize Blush, Mineralize Eye Shadow), for instance, are free of traditional binders found in pressed powders.

“They’re baked for 24 hours on terracotta tiles and the result is super skin adhesion, pure colour, luminous dimension and a luxurious light finish.”
