I received this lipgloss as a free gift, ordered during a "Let's Do Lunch Thursday"...so I'm not going to feel bad about tossing it out.
It is described on the Smashbox site as a "shimmery mauve", which it is, more on the borderline of a lavendar mauve. The shade is not super dark, gives my pigmented lips a bit of color. My biggest pet peeve about this gloss is the chunky glitter & the strong chemical scent.
I do like the compact tube and that it has a wand applicator. I do not plan to repurchase this gloss & at this point would not recommend it!
