This shade is like brownish-purply-plum. The color appears metallic on my lips which i really don't like. However, I love the tube of lip gloss! I thought it was just an ordinary lip balm shine but I got so delighted when it appeared so shiny on my lips like any liquid gloss can give! My problem with it is that the shine isn't long lasting. It literally lasts for like a minute and when I look back in the mirror, the shine is no longer as noticeable! Oh well, I don't mind reapplying it!
Bottom line, I would not buy this for the color but only for it's unique gloss! Heeheeh!
