The color in the bottle is beautiful--a creamy chartreuse. The packaging is also lovely. However, it applies a shade darker than in the bottle and isn't quite as delicate looking. I wish it was a bit lighter and a bit brighter (perhaps slightly more yellow/olive) in real life. On another skin tone it might look better--I am very pale. Unfortunately, for $20 for a .3 FL OZ bottle I can't settle for "mostly good," so back it goes!
EDIT 2/4/13: I recently bought OPI's Did It On 'Em and love it--that polish applies the color of the promotional pictures for Estee Lauder's Absinthe. If you're looking for a lighter, more yellow chartreuse than this polish applies, try Did It On 'Em.
