Way better than the first tube of this shade that I bought! I love the color! It is way creamier, goes on smoothly, and smells great! I knew the first tube I bought had to be an old stock number or something because this one is just amazing. Finally! At long last I can say, I have at least one Make Up Forever product that I actually am in love with. I would buy a backup if I thought it would stay fresh, but after getting a very bad first tube, I will just have to chance waiting and hope they do not discontinue this color. Love it!
