I have this in Brandy - the exact same color as NARS African Queen (red-brown). This is a really lovely brick red color and the pencil is relatively soft and blendable. (I have yet to find a *really* soft pencil.) I actually like this better than Chanel in Sienna (which it resembles, though Sienna is slightly softer in color).
I picked this up in Maple and I love it. Very comparable to Benefit's Smoulder, another fave of mine, but the SK is a softer color, with a touch more pink. Great for nude lips with a gloss; this is an excellent year-round liner.
This lip liner is perhaps a little bit hard, but otherwise great. I have "Plum", a plum-berry-brown shade that is quite natural when applied with a light hand. Good for the price!
