Lisa Eldridge Velvet Intrigue is a very warm-toned, light-medium pink with a matte finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $36.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Lisa Eldridge Velvet Intrigue True Velvet Lipstick Colour ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, medium pinky-peach with a soft matte texture. I found the lipstick to be a little thinner, slightly drier, though still having a velvety glide that made it comfortably to apply, but this resulted in a finish that emphasized lip texture and lip lines much more than other shades in the formula.
It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that felt a little clingier over time. This shade lasted for four hours but settled into my lip lines noticeably, and it was more non-drying than lightly hydrating like other shades. It is not uncommon, in my experience, that lighter mattes can be less forgiving compared to mid-tone and deeper hues in the same formula, though obviously one wishes for consistency and high performance across all shades!

Paint your lips as an artist would with these highly pigmented True Velvet Lipsticks. Described as 'A phenomenon... a work of art’. Each bullet has the appearance of beautifully plush velvet fabric, a ‘trompe l’oeil’ that has to be seen to be believed. This is matte lipstick revolutionised with a saturated technicolour formulation and a creamy texture with a slight sheen that’s 3-D and luscious, not a flat matte. So intensely pigmented, it’s easy to create either a one-swipe graphic lip statement or pat gently for the ultimate subtle lip stain. Cutting edge lab tech has enabled the creation of a very long-wearing, non drying crème which feels lightweight, silky and comfortable to wear.
