Great Victorian Violet is a sheer silvery lilac shimmer. It gives out silvery, bluish irridecent color. It looks very sheer so I need to put at least three coats to make it opaque.
The formula is a very old one and it dries really quickly. It looks ok on my skin but since mine is too warm, it looks a bit wierd. May be it will look good on cool tones. But afterall, this color is too sheer and it's hard to appreciate as you will need at least three to four coats to make it noticeable. Won't repurchase.
