This is a very pretty dark plum lipstick. It's sort of shiny, but I prefer the softer matte look I get when I blot it with a tissue.
For a nice evening look, try blotting it and then applying a bronze-y gloss over it. The result is a deep rosy plum, dramatic but sophisticated.
It's definitely an autumn/winter color, unless you're in the habit of wearing dark lipstick year-round.
The look you get when appyling it full-strength without blotting is very dark and dramatic.
The only thing I don't like about this color is that it can make my teeth look more yellow than usual. Blotting seems to reduce this problem.
The formula is very moisturizing. I really like the texture and feel of this line of lipsticks. It is an excellent product.
Overall, this is a fun color to try but not something I'd wear often.
