Hey friends, as you know how much we Indian girls struggle to find a perfect neutral or nude shade which doesnâ€™t look ashy on us right?
Yeah I know the pain trust me!
And during my struggle to find that perfect nude shade for myself i stumbled upon this baby, Its from Elizabeth Ardenâ€™s permanent collection Color Intrigue lipstick in Copper Tan Shimmer

I got this from drugstore among two other shades and they were $6 a shade, that was a good day indeed! 🙂

My experience with Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Effects Lipstick 10 Copper Tan Shimmer:
This particular shade is a very pretty shade with micro shimmers(almost undetectable) which is ideal for both day and night time wear.
It looks like a burnt peachy-pink color with just a hint of copper.
Nuf said! It is a beautiful shade which will complement all Indian skin tones really well 🙂
It is smooth , non-fragrant and easy to glide and one swipe of it will give a good amount of opaque pigmentation.
Not a sheer lipstick by any means, this lipstick means serious business.
The staying power is decent about 4-5 hours but transfer onto tea/coffee mugs, yes!! :-/
Having said that it really does well over matching lip liner staying power increases by at least 1 hour which is pretty good after that it fades away quite quickly and you need to retouch it.
Still I will say it is great shade if you are wearing a black/brown smokey eye, it really complements your that heavy smokey eye 🙂
What I like about Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Effects Lipstick 10 Copper Tan Shimmer:
- Smooth formula, glides on lips easily
- Good pigmentation, gives very opaque color in one swipe
- Shimmers are very fine and completely non-bothersome
- Very moisturizing formula
- Decent staying power 4-5 , 6 hours with a lip-liner beneath
- Does not bleed or settle into fine lines
- Great for both Day and night wear
- It is one of the most perfect nude shade for Indian skin
- This particular shade will suit all complexions equally well
What I donâ€™t like about Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Effects Lipstick 10 Copper Tan Shimmer:
- Transfer to coffee mugs( Not a big con for me)
- Price- Expensive just like MAC lippies
