This color is not as versatile as Rose from the same line. It's a dark magenta that looks good with dark purplish lipsticks. I don't have a whole lot of dark purple lipsticks, so I don't get a lot of use from this. The color of the pencil(outside) is really amazing. It's magenta with purple sheen. The pencil doesn't go on like that. This is the same quality as any other Jordana lip liner.
