Okay, I really don't know what I was thinking when I bought this lipstick. I must have gotten it as a Back 2 MAC freebie because that's when I get "different" colors I wouldn't ordinarily try. Anyway, Epic is basically a muted *purple*. It's actually not too god-awful looking, but is not the most flattering shade of lipstick on me. Maybe I need to try some gloss or something with it.
