I ordered this from the NARS website where it's listed as a "retro" color - perhaps because it was discontinued, then brought back? Either way, I like it, and I do think it's sort of a "90s" color. Remember classics like Revlon's Toast of New York or Clinique Black Honey? This color is reminiscent of those - it's an MLBB color. It's sheer, with very subtle golden sparkle. However it's rather bright, especially when layered on. I like this a lot, but prefer my colors warmer as I have very yellow/olive skin. I much prefer NARS warm reds such as Mindgame, Flamenco & Zanzibar. The description of this color on the website is "sheer cinnamon" but when I think cinnamon, I think brown, and this color is not brown, more of a reddish-plum. This is a nice "safe" color and I'll use it all up, but won't buy again, there are too many other great NARS colors I want to try first (Beautiful Liar, Tzigane)
