Misleading name. I ordered this online & was expected a wine colored shadow- it is a dark pink, in the pot & on me. I hated it so much, I covered it up with MAC Sketch (too purple to be considered the perfect burgundy) because I had somewhere to go & didn't have time to redo my eye makeup. I do have to say the pigmentation is good.

Of the NYX single shadows I've tried so far, this one is my favourite. It is such a pretty colour! It makes a lovely crease colour and blends out so nicely! This one is a must-have!

Beautiful color for warming up any look - use this mainly in my outer v with a darker chocolate brown to bring out my green eyes - great pigmentation .

I was expecting to be pinky purple . THIS IS NOT A PINK/PURPLE, it doesn't even look pinky/purple on the packaging , is not even a wine color .

This isn't quite the color I expected. I was thinking this would be more plum than pink. On my eyes this appears a dark pink/red. This color is rather nice paired with NYX Antique Gold or Stila Kitten.

No fallout, super pigmented, long lasting power. I like it, just wasn't what I was expecting.

Better pigment then MAC's cranberry. Has a silky, not matte but not shimmery finish. I found this eyeshadow had a lot of pink undertones it, kind of a pink/purple/burgundy color hard to describe. It's true to how it looks in the packaging though and is absolutely beautiful for warming up the crease, I got it from hearing emilynoel83's raves.

Buy this!!!!

Bought this based on a tutorial by Emilynoel on Youtube. Used it this morning as a crease color. Gorgeous! Beautiful wine color. Pearl finish but, not overly "shimmery". LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!

Another winning eyeshadow from NYX. I absoultely love a burgundy smokey eye, and this creates it. Smooth, pigmented and long lasting & no annoying fallout- I cannot believe there aren't more reviews for this because it works so well.

This is a nice eyeshadow. I think the other reviewer described it pretty well. In the pan, it looks like a purply-burgundy, but turns out to be less purple on the lid. When applied wet, some plumminess comes out. This looks awesome with bronze in a smokey eye. I would repurchase.

I'm surprised there aren't any reviews for this eyeshadow. I'd describe this as the perfect burgundy color, it's a shimmery mid-tone burgundy that doesn't have too much purple or red tones. Surprisingly doesn't give me the pink eye look. Wonderful texture and pigment as with most NYX eyeshadows.
