While I love some of the other Color Intrigue lipsticks from Elizabeth Arden (my favorite so far is Cranberry Cream), I was disappointed in this one. It has good pigmentation like the other lipsticks in this line, but it's a little lighter than I had wanted. Mocha Shimmer is a light brown lipstick with a hint of copper. I liked it better when I applied a lip liner first and then applied Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush lip gloss (in Hot Cocoanut) over it. That combination really seemed to make the color "pop" more. I will not repurchase this shade, but will continue to try other shades in this line.
