This is definitely on the pinky side of red but the gold shimmer makes it look warmer so I could see how people would describe it as a neutral red. I have fair/warm skin, so I usually can't wear a pinky red but the brightness and the gold lifts beautifully. Its a lovley bright and festive shade ideal for Christmas and New Year celebrations!
This is the perfect red for the holidays. I am on my second tube and love the color. It isn't a blue red but it isn't an orange red either. There is gold pigment in it and makes the lips just sparkle.
I love it.
